Find Arvak's Skull is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard.

BackgroundEdit

Upon entering the Soul Cairn, along the initial path that leads to the front of the Boneyard, the Dragonborn will come across a frantic soul calling, "Arvak, Arvak!". He will tell the Dragonborn how he and his loyal steed Arvak came to this realm and were attacked by monsters. He had told Arvak to run, and claims that Arvak is still running, and has been for a long time.

He begs the Dragonborn to find Arvak and disappears. Arvak's Skull must be located in the Soul Cairn to free him.

WalkthroughEdit

Arvak's Skull can be found due east from the front gate of the Boneyard where Valerica is found. It will be sitting on a pedestal surrounded by ghosts that turn into mistmenbonemen and wrathmen.

After obtaining the skull, the soul who was looking for Arvak will appear nearby, and will teach the Dragonborn how to summon Arvak.

    • Aye. That happens to other quests, as well. There's nothing you can really do about it. Just try to ignore it.
    • This game is rife with crap like this. I have no further interest in this franchise.
