Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

This is a radiant quest that will take you to a random camp to retrieve one of the Fragments of Wuuthrad that has been acquired by the Silver Hand. You will need to fight your way through to the destination's boss chest, where you will find the fragment.

This quest is no longer available once Wuuthrad is reforged during Glory of the Dead, meaning you will at most be able to complete this quest a few times. It is also possible to never receive this quest.


Levels Reward USLEEP Reward
1-9 100 100
10-19 150 150
20-29 300 200
30-39 300 250
40+ 300 300
Level is based on when the player completed the previous quest (or level one for the first quest), not the player's level when receiving the quest or its reward.
The reward amounts for radiant Companions quests do not progress as intended.


  • Accepting this quest while other Companions quests are active may leave you unable to complete it.
  • You may receive this quest from Aela despite completing Glory of the Dead. This may be caused after the events of The Silver Hand, accepting Aela's first quest, and accepting one of the other companion's quests. By the time you complete the Companions' quest line, Aela may have the second mission queued.
