Travel to Eir's homestead for a short conversation, then to north-eastern part of Wayfarer Foothills. Upon entering the instance you will meet up with Eir, Garm, and the Minotaur Spirit, they will all fight with you. There are some Ice Wurm Hatchlings near by that you or the NPC may argo, taking them out will avoid them from joining the upcoming fight.

The entrance is guarded by a Svanir Ballista Operator at a Svanir Bolt Thrower and a pack of Icebrood Wolves. You can destroy the Bolt Thrower with range attacks without argoing the rest. All the rest will attack if one gets argo. Afer all have been killed move to the entrance, a small group is just inside. You can pull them out or fight at the entrance. Do not go to far inside while fighting as there is another group farther in, take on one group at a time. After killing the second group a cinematic of Vidkum arriving will play.

[edit] Dialogues

Upon entering Eir's home:

Eir Stegalkin: Patience, Garm. We'll go as soon as the Slayer gets here.
Eir Stegalkin: I have great hopes that this is the hero we've been waiting for.
Eir Stegalkin: Don't worry. No matter what, we'll still be togehter, you and me. Just like always.

Cinematic with Eir:

Eir Stegalkin: Welcome, Slayer. Now that the minotaurs are free, we can concentrate on Vidkun and his beast. I believe they're hiding out near Hunter's Lake.
<Player Name>: Then we're off to the lake to punish Vidkun and his little dragon minion! Simple.
Eir Stegalkin: Simple? That creature is a servant of the Ice Dragon itself. You should take dangerous opponenets more seriously. Don't underestimate Vidkun's beast…or Vidkun.
<Player Name>: I'm not underestimating them; I'm insulting them. Relax, Eir! I know this will be a real fight, and I'm ready for it.
Eir Stegalkin: You have to be more than ready. I used to be as eager as you, but I learned: where Jormag's minions are involved, you can't overprepare.
<Player Name>: With you around, I'm learning all the time. Trust me; I'm ready for this. So is Garm, by the look of him, perking up his ears at the idea of a fight.
Eir Stegalkin: Garm's a bit like you: he always enjoys a good brawl. Let's give him one. We'll meet you at Hunter's Lake.

After cinematic:

Eir Stegalkin: This will be the kind of battle they sing about at moots. Glory comes easily to you, Slayer.
Charisma
It comes a lot easier since I met you. Now, on to Vidkun!
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks, but we've got work to do. Let's pay a visit to Vidkun and his beast.

Cinematic with Eir at Hunter's Lake:

Eir Stegalkin: Minotaur seems eager to settle the score with Vidkun and his dragon minion.
<Player Name>: If they'd been eating my friends and family, I'd feel the same!

Cinematic after the initial Sons of Svanir are defeated:

Vidkun: So you're the ones causing so much trouble! A snot-nosed kid and an old woman. Ha! Coming here was a fatal mistake.
Vidkun: My thanks for delivering the Minotaur spirit! My dragon beast needs a full meal before I trun it loose on Hoelbrak.
<Player Name>: We're not delivering Minotaur to your pet, we're delivering your pet to him.[sic] He's going to trample that thing flat.
<Player Name>: It's over, Vidkun. You've butchered your last minotaur.
Eir Stegalkin:You attacked the Spirits of the Wild. We are their rebuttal. Defend yourself!

Before the battle:

Vidkun: Come, my pet. Let us show them the power of Dragon!

If you bring down Vidkun before the Beast his health regenerates:

Vidkun: You cannot defeat me! With my minion by my side, I am invincible!
Eir Stegalkin: Kill the creature first! We can't hurt Vidkun while it's alive!

Cinematic after Vidkun and the beast are defeated:

<Player Name>: I'm no shaman, but it's easy to see that Minotaur is happy and grateful. I hope this means no more minotaur herds attacking caravans?
Eir Stegalkin: I'd say definitely not. We didn't just stop these Sons of Svanir, we expanded our understanding of the Spirits. This is a victory to be savored, Slayer.
<Player Name>: Oh, I'll savor it. If you, me, and Garm ever go out where we're not on the edge of death every step of the way, the savoring will be epic![sic]
Eir Stegalkin: Ha. Count me in. It'll have to wait, though. I have a hall full of statues to carve…I'm feeling more creative than I have in ages.
<Player Name>: Glad to hear it. You've spent plenty of time making me look good lately. It's somebody else's turn.
Eir Stegalkin: You made yourself look good. I'm just here to smooth out the rough edges. I do have a lot more I want to teach you, but you've done enough for one day.
Eir Stegalkin: Garm and I may call on you again soon. You should also count on us if you ever need help. Until we meet again, may the Spirits guide you.

If you chose One Good Drink Deserves Another the above cinematic may differ:

<Player Name>: I'm no shaman, but it's easy to see that Minotaur is happy and grateful. I hope this means no more minotaur herds attacking caravans?
Eir Stegalkin: I'd say definitely not. We didn't just stop these Sons of Svanir, we expanded our understanding of the Spirits. This is a victory to be savored, Slayer.
<Player Name>: Oh, I'll savor it. And if I remember correctly, you're going to join me in savoring it over a few kegs of Bear's Brown Ale.
Eir Stegalkin: Ha! I did promise, didn't I? We'll have to wait for the next moot, though. I think the Sons drank all of the Bear's Brown in Hoelbrak.
<Player Name>: That won't stop us for long. Nothing can!
Eir Stegalkin: Keep that confidence, Slayer. There's a lot more I want to teach you, but you've done enough for one day.
Eir Stegalkin: Garm and I may call on you again soon. You should also count on us if you ever need help. Until we meet again, may the Spirits guide you.

After final cinematic:

Eir Stegalkin: Another job well done, Slayer. Now Minotaur and his people can live as they were meant to: wild and free.
Ferocity
They deserve it. Just as Vidkun and his dragon minion deserved what they got.
Charisma
I just hope Minotaur remembers us when he becomes one of the major spirits.
Dignity
Whenever the Sons attack the true Spirits of the Wild, I'll be there to stop them.
Talk end option tango.png
As it should be.

[edit] My story

Minotaur Rampant.jpg

I spoke with Eir and we set to confront the Sons of Svanir leader, Vidkun. He may have a dragon minion on his side, but we have Minotaur himself. Together, we'll stop Vidkun's attacks on Minotaur and his kind.

Along with Eir, Garm, and the Minotaur Spirit, I defeated Vidkun and his corrupted dragon minion.
