Revision as of 07:37, May 1, 2014

Template:SkyrimTombs

It is an ice-filled tomb located northeast of Windhelm on the south side of the river bank. It contains Draugr and adept-level chests.

Interior

The area also contains a puzzle door that requires the Coral Dragon Claw to open, which can be found either from Birna in Winterhold or within the barrow itself, located on a pedestal past a puzzle room. The final room contains Yngol's Shade, an undead wielding a honed ancient battleaxe, appears to use the frost voice, and may disarm. Upon defeating Yngol, the exit can be unlocked by removing the Helm of Yngol from the skeleton seated in the chair. Yngol Barrow is used for multiple quests, and the enemies within may vary depending upon which quests, if any, are active. Yngol's Shade may not always appear, instead being replaced by a Draugr Death Overlord or an unmasked Dragon Priest. The rest of the barrow may also be either filled with Draugr or completely empty before the final room.

As you explore around the interior of Yngol Barrow, you will encounter several eerie light orbs. They will follow the Dragonborn around, but are completely harmless. They tweet lightly and roll from room to room often bouncing or coming out of holes and cracks in the wall and ceilings, before literally pouring out of the puzzle door. They will follow after the player even if no Draugr are awakened or present.

Pillar Puzzle

The player comes across a Dead Scholar and a pillar puzzle early in the dungeon. The scholar's corpse contains a book titled Notes on Yngol Barrow. It appears he had discovered the barrow in his travels and had been transcribing the Nordic carvings in the cave for the College of Winterhold. The notes provide the key to the Pillar Puzzle:

Riddle Solution
Man in his throne, so should he be A skeleton should already be in the throne.
Whale in the Sea, so should he be Whale where there's a leak/waterfall.
Eagle in Sun's Sky, so should he be Eagle where there is light from outside beaming in.
Snake in the weed, so should he be Snake where grass has grown around the pillar.

Activating the lever now opens the gate, revealing a Coral Dragon Claw on a pedestal. If you already obtained the claw from Winterhold, it will not be there. The Coral Claw is used to open the puzzle door and contains a clue to the sequence. Its order is (top to bottom) Snake, Wolf, Moth.
