 Detailed Walkthrough
Upon arriving at Left Hand Mine outside of Markarth, you may overhear a discussion between Skaggi Scar-Face and Pavo Attius. Pavo and his fellow miner Gat gro-Shargakh are the only survivors of a Forsworn invasion of Kolskeggr Mine. In response, Skaggi will give them permission to stay at Left Hand Mine. Talk to either Skaggi or Pavo, who will ask you to clear out Kolskeggr of Forsworn.
Make your way to the mine, which will be marked on your map if you hadn't previously discovered it. Several Forsworn will be standing guard at the mine's entrance, with more inside. Once you've killed them all, head back to Left Hand Mine. Pavo and Gat will then return to Kolskeggr Mine.
When you arrive back at Left Hand Mine, you will be rewarded with a leveled amount of gold before Pavo and Gat leave.
- Once Pavo returns to Kolskeggr Mine, he will offer to buy gold ore from you. His services are of limited use, however (see bugs below).
- Since finishing this quest helps Gat too, he makes you Blood-Kin with the Orcs if you aren't already.
- Fulfilling the quest and letting the miners reclaim control of Kolskeggr Mine will not really help them. The Forsworn will respawn the next time you visit the cell and kill them off if you aren't quick enough. It's possible to save them; just make sure that you quickly dispatch the two Forsworn near the bridge. The miners and a guard will easily dispatch the one at the top
- You may be able to repeat this quest when the Forsworn there respawn, as long as you stay away from Kolskeggr Mine and avoid triggering the event in which the miners try to reclaim control. ?
