Whiterun Dead Guard is an unmarked location found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Outside of Whiterun at the base of where Dragonsreach is, the body of a dead guard (Whiterun or Stormcloak) can be found lying on some rocks with blood splattered on them. This is most likely the guard that was grabbed and thrown over the walls by Odahviing during "The Fallen" quest. Prior to "The Fallen," there will be no guard lying on the rocks nor will there be any blood.


  • There is a nearby chest with levelled loot near the guard's body.
  • There is one Quicksilver and one Corundum ore vein within the vicinity of this location.
  • The secret exit out of the city from The Underforge comes out in this area.
