Walkthrough[edit]

There is a small group consisting of a Son of Svanir Huntsman and four Icebrood Wolves, with a Son of Svanir Bolt Thrower and a couple of Sons of Svanir behind them. You can avoid the ballista by going around it if you wish.

Behind the ballista is a cave with the injured Havroun Solvi, 2 Sons of Svanir, an Icebrood Mauler, and an open portal behind them. Try to fight them towards the entrance of the cave, since as soon as they're dead, Styrr Forstblade, now demoted from Champion to Veteran, and 2 Sons of Svanir will come out from the portal (and a cutscene will play). You can thus have a break between the two fights. It is then also possible to attack the guards with a ranged attack and leave Styrr alone for the end. Styrr uses Ice Shard AoE attacks and Ice Prison, and generally does little damage.

Solvi, who is lying on the ground, has a corrupted ice spike in him, keeping him between life and death so that his portal will remain open for the Sons of Svanir to use at their leisure. You are tasked with releasing him from his torment. Interacting with him will remove the spike, and a Son of Svanir will emerge from the portal, which you should now destroy. As you are destroying the portal, other enemies will appear.

After destroying the portal, a cutscene starts in which the dying Havroun Solvi asks his apprentice to take over his duties as havroun of Wolf, and dies. Eir encourages Valda, and promises the player that she will be available if they need her again.

Dialogue[edit]

Upon approaching Eir:

Apprentice Valda: We have to hurry. Hold on, Master Solvi, I'm coming!
Eir Stegalkin: Valda, wait! You can't do this alone. Let us help you, and we'll save Solvi together.
Eir Stegalkin: They know we're coming, and they look prepared. Be ready for anything.

Talking with your allies:

Apprentice Valda: Master Solvi is in terrible danger—I can feel it. We have to help him!
Talk end option tango.png
You can rely on us, Valda. We won't rest until we find Solvi.
Eir Stegalkin: No time. Now, we fight!
Talk end option tango.png
You're right. Let's go.

Upon approaching the Sons of Svanir in the clearing:

Apprentice Valda: Butchers! We've come for Havroun Solvi!
Son of Svanir Huntsman: Look, it's the Wolf pup. Time to finish what we started, boys!
Son of Svanir Huntsman: You won't escape us again, little girl. Kill her! Kill them all!
Son of Svanir Huntsman: Look who's here: a wolf, two wenches, and the "Slayer." Cut them down!

Cinematic as Styrr Frostblade emerges from the portal:

Apprentice Valda: There! That spike has Solvi's spirit pinned between life and death. His soul is trapped.
Apprentice Valda: That's why the portal won't close. It's waiting for him to cross over.
<Character name>: Get away from Havroun Solvi, Frostblade. Your invasion of the Mists ends here and now.
Styrr Frostblade: So you're Stegalkin's new pet project? You're wasting your time. Dragon will devour the world.
Eir Stegalkin: Don't let him bait you, Slayer. We must clear a path to Solvi. Valda! Protect your master.
<Character name>: I won't stop until Frostblade and every Son of Svanir here pays for what they've done.

During the fight with Styrr Frostblade:

Styrr Frostblade: I'll kill you, flay you, and make boots from your skin!

Cinematic after destroying the portal:

Apprentice Valda: Master Solvi! If we hurry, we can get you back to Hoelbrak, to the healers. They can—
Havroun Solvi: My place is among the legends now. I leave the role of havroun in your very capable hands.
Havroun Solvi: Remember all I have taught you, and all that you have learned. Seek aid when you need it. We'll meet again... in the...
<Character name>: I'm so sorry, Valda.
Eir Stegalkin: Solvi's burden is now yours, Valda, Havroun of Wolf. You must surpass his legend. That is how a student honors their mentor.
<Character name>: Then that is how I shall honor you.
Eir Stegalkin: This was your journey, Slayer. I was simply here to guide you. The hero's path is a difficult one. I have walked it. Now, it is your time.
Eir Stegalkin: If you need my help in the future... for anything... simply ask, and I will answer.

Speaking with your allies after the cinematic:

Apprentice Valda: Master Solvi is gone. I fear I will never be as great a havroun as he was.
Ferocity
No, you will be better. You must live up to your master's example and surpass it.
Dignity
Be strong. All you need is experience, and confidence will follow.
Charisma
You should embrace this challenge! Solvi chose you because he knew you were ready.
Talk end option tango.png
Honor Solvi's memory, and you'll never fail. Good luck, Havroun Valda.
Eir Stegalkin: You have the making of a hero, <Character name>. I would be honored to share my knowledge with you in the future. Come to me when you have need.
Talk end option tango.png
Your courage in the face of danger was inspirational. Farewell, Eir.

My story[edit]

The Wolf Havroun.jpg

Along with Eir and Garm, I defeated the Sons of Svanir. We couldn't save Wolf Havroun Solvi's life, but we did release his spirit and close the Sons of Svanir portal to the Mists. With order restored to the Spirit World and Valda assuming the role of the Wolf Havroun, we're ready to meet whatever challenges lay ahead.
