Orphan Rock is a large rock formation within a wooded valley, home to a group of witches.
Approaching from the south, there are two witches on the valley floor and two resting near the tent by the path at the top of the slope. All four of the witches will attack on sight, using low-level Destruction spells and daggers. Orphan Rock itself is accessed across a log bridge near the tent, and is protected by a single hagraven with more powerful fire spells. It is possible to fight the first set of witches without alarming the set on the upper level and the hagraven.
The most notable loot is Nettlebane, found on the body of the hagraven. There is a chest containing leveled loot in the hagraven's tent on top of Orphan Rock and an arcane enchanter nearby. The tent by the path also contains a locked chest, and there are a number of barrels and sacks with food and ingredients next to that tent.
Along the path south of the bluff are some spikes with wolf heads on them. Near them is a fallen tree. The tree is hollow, and can be entered from one end, revealing a lootable skeleton next to a coin purse and a leveled helmet.
Caution is advised when traversing the area. Four elemental rune traps, two bear traps, and two sets of sharpened stakes, similar to those at the bottom of a spike pit trap, can be found all around this location.
