Just visited here and there was a ghost standing outside. He began running on my approach but unfortunately I didn't follow. Need to look into why this ghost is there, obviously there is more to this location than stated on this page.

(edit) loaded a previous save, followed the ghost and he lead me to 2 bandit graverobbers. In the grave was a staff, amulet and shield (levelled items)

Not necessary a staff. What I found there are a Orcish Dagger of Animus, a necklace and a shield. I suppose the item changed due to player's level. My character is already at lv 81. 14:28, 15 December 2011 (UTC)


I visited here at night, waited for a whole evening, and no ghost. Is there a prerequisite or something I have to do to trigger the ghost? — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 04:53 on 21 January 2012

You have to enter the trigger region between 8PM and 5AM. It's dunPOISnowyGhostEventTrigger for anybody wanting to look it up in the CK. --Alfwyn 16:19, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

No matter what, still no ghost.[edit]

I tried waiting outside, I tried waiting in an inn in Mortal, I tried waiting a few feet from it, I tried sleeping in one of the Stormcloak tents and still no ghost. I even tried shouting, no cigar. I want the Ancient Nord Armor without having to go through the Siege of the Dragon Cult and the Companion questline. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 14:40 on 5 October 2013

You can also get the Ancient Nord Armor from Bashnag in Skyrim:Southfringe Sanctum. If you want the other pieces: the helmets are fairly commonly available, I think the boots can be found in Skyrim:Forsaken Cave. The gauntlets I think are only in Forelhost though. But Forelhost gives a word of Storm Call, one of the most powerful shouts in the game. It's completely worth it. --Morrolan (talk) 16:10, 5 October 2013 (GMT)
And to get this to trigger, you have to enter the area between 8pm and 5am, as is stated above. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 19:24, 5 October 2013 (GMT)
I also tried waiting till 9PM in Morthal inn, in Windstad, fast traveling from Lakeview to arive at ~9PM to Movarth's Lair, Windstad, Ustegrav, Kjenstag. And still no ghost. How i can force it to appear with console codes? Ciberzombie (talk) 10:53, 8 June 2017 (UTC)
It seems that ghost only appears once and i as some other people just missed it first time and there is no second chance except loading previous save Ciberzombie (talk) 20:59, 14 July 2017 (UTC)


I didn't find the ghost but climbing the hill on opposite side of river I found the grave and robbers. It's an arched formation halfway between Hjaalmarch and Mzinchaleft. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 18:58 on 5 November 2018 (UTC)
