In Broken Helm Hollow, a body lies in a hidden room, which can be entered by the use of a pull chain.
- Find his family in Heartwood Mill
- Tell them of his death
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:
- 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.
- 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. The dialogue for reporting his death does not appear with either his son
- 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.
