Path leading into Hoelbrak.

The norn around Hoelbrak have established the Wayfarer Foothills as their primary hunting grounds. Further north, there lies a treacherous landscape of frozen fields and icy crags corrupted by the Sons of Svanir, norn who revere the Elder Dragon Jormag.

— In-game description

The Wayfarer Foothills is the first area visited by newly created norn characters and is located next to Hoelbrak. Shrines for the four Spirits of the Wild are located in this area, some of which are threatened by attacks from either the dredge or Sons of Svanir. Each shrine holds a unique event. This area is a part of the Shiverpeak Mountains.
