 Quick Walkthrough
 Detailed Walkthrough
After completing The Man Who Cried Wolf, talk to Elisif, Jarl of Solitude. She needs someone reliable to do something personal for her regarding her late husband, High King Torygg. She will tell you, "When we buried my husband I made offerings to all the gods... except Talos." This is because Talos worship is outlawed in the Empire. She would like you to take Torygg's War Horn and place it at a specific Shrine of Talos. Although she doesn't worship Talos herself, her husband would have wanted a proper Nordic burial done in this fashion.
Travel to the Shrine of Talos in the wilderness of Whiterun Hold, due north of The Ritual Stone. Follow the path near Shimmermist Cave, along the northern bank of the river, and you can find the shrine behind some trees. When you approach the shrine, Agent Lorcalin and a Thalmor soldier will appear and try to kill you, as Lorcalin is under orders from the Thalmor emissary to kill any Talos worshippers he can find.
You can find a few gold, a satchel, and some leveled items there, including a greatsword, a dagger, a helmet, and a soul gem. There is also a coin purse on the ground to the left of the shrine, still under the overhanging rock face. There are benches that can be sat on here, and a few mountain flowers around the shrine. Place the war horn in front of the statue of Talos. Once the horn is placed and the quest updates, you are free to take it away at any time without affecting the quest's progress, and it will no longer be marked as a quest item.
- Prior to completing the prerequisite quest, the horn can be pickpocketed from the Jarl of Solitude. It will be marked as a quest item and cannot be removed from your inventory before completing Elisif's Tribute.
