Flight or Fight is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Grosta is at the Heartwood Mill, she is looking for her husband, Leifnarr. She asks the Dragonborn to find him.


In Broken Helm Hollow, a body lies in a hidden room, which can be entered by the use of a pull chain.



Secret chamberz

The lever to the Secret chamber

The quest marker points the Dragonborn to Broken Helm Hollow. Inside the cave there are three bandits, one of whom is the leader.

A pull chain on the cave wall between the the bandit leader's sleeping mat and other bandits' mats will open a secret chamber. A corpse will be inside marked Nord. The objective will be completed after the corpse is searched.

Returning to Heartwood Mill and informing Grosta of the find will produce a reward of a random, leveled, enchanted weapon.


This section contains bugs related to Flight or Fight. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  •  PC   360   PS3   No map location may be linked to the quest entry in the Journal. In addition, the directional indicator in the main view window may not show a caret to indicate direction. This may happen if the body is discovered during a bounty mission in Broken Helm Hollow.
  •  PC   360   PS3   The dialogue for reporting his death does not appear with either his son Gralnach or his wife Grosta. This may be due to finding Leifnarr's body before talking to Grosta. This bug cannot be fixed on PS3 or Xbox, but it can be failed and moved off the active quest list by killing Grosta at Heartwood Mill. It can be cleared on PC by using console command: SetStage E3EA5 30.
  • Leifnarr's body may be found a second time, in a different location, such as Orotheim, after the quest has been finished. This will restart the quest but neither Gralnach nor Grosta will have the speech option needed to finish the quest.
