For other uses, see Northwind Mine.

Northwind Mine is a mine in The Rift. Found on the northern side of the mountain range north and slightly west of Riften, the entrance is located east of Mistwatch, northwest of Shor's Stone, and west-southwest of Cragslane Cavern.

Interior[edit | edit source]

From the entrance, the mine leads north to a room with wooden ramps and several skeletons. A chest with random loot is up the first ramp to the left (west). On a table to the right is the skill book Death Blow of Abernanit. A second ramp leads up to the north, then west, then south. From the top of the ramp, the mine leads up to the west, then north, where there is a tripwire for a falling boulder trap. The path turns to the east, and leads up to another skeleton, then the exit.

Trekking all the way through the mine and out of the other side leads to Northwind Summit and a battle with a dragon (if "Dragon Rising" has been completed), as well as a new word of power used in the shout Aura Whisper.

  •  PC   PS3   To the right of the knapsack underneath the stairs there is an apothecary satchel, however, it cannot be searched.
