Hoelbrak eastern entrance.jpg
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 zone visited by newly created norn characters and is located next to the Great Lodge of Hoelbrak. In the mountain valley to the south are shrines to the four most highly regarded Spirits of the Wild. Some of the shrines are threatened by attacks from either the dredge or Sons of Svanir, the latter having an even higher presence in the frozen steppe to the north, along with Icebrood, minions of the Elder Ice Dragon Jormag.
