Eastmarch Necromancer Altar is an unmarked location found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Located northwest of Bonestrewn Crest is an altar set up in a ruined barrow. Atop the altar lay two draugr and a soul gem. The skeletal remains of a novice conjurer can also be found here. What was once a barrow has been taken over by the hot-springs, and the water is littered with draugr remains, urns, and even a chest.


Walking up to the altar will cause a Necromancer and a Master Necromancer to appear from behind the tower. They will use ranged attacks of Ice Spike and Fireball. The Necromancer will use the scenery as cover to cast Ice Spike at the Dragonborn. One of the Necromancers will attempt to resurrect the Draugr to join in the attack.


  • Called "Cronvangr Summoning Altar" in the Skyrim official game guide by Prima (map marker 7.M).
