Orphan Rock is a landmark located north of the road running between Helgen and Ivarstead. When traveling from Helgen, there is a path on the left side of the road before reaching the Falkreath Stormcloak Camp. If travelling from Riverwood, there is a path behind Hod and Gerdur's house, leading south.
Once "The Blessings of Nature" quest is started, Orphan Rock becomes the home of a hagraven and several witches and hags who serve her. It is a large pillar of natural stone that is accessed by a fallen tree bridge. There is an Arcane Enchanter located there. If Orphan Rock is visited before the quest is initiated, the area will be found empty but for a few nightshade plants.
This location appears to have been used for the sacrifice/slaughter of spriggans, as the body of one is found atop a brazier here. Also, there are two spriggan heads mounted on sticks, next to the tree trunk bridge.
- The hagraven, witches, tents and such will not appear until the quest "The Blessings of Nature" is active. The fallen tree (acting as a bridge to the center rock formation) also does not spawn. However, it is still a location that can be discovered and fast travelled to.
- There is a skeleton in the base of the big fallen tree to the south with a coin purse and leveled helmet. It may take some dragging/adjusting the skeleton to collect the coin purse.
- Two rubies can sometimes be found in mid-air, just east of the Arcane Enchanter. It's possible that they were placed with the intention of being set into the eye-sockets of the animal skull above the nearby tent but were forgotten.
