Grosta remarks that without him, the mill will not last more than a few seasons. She asks the Dragonborn to help locate Leifnarr, touching off the miscellaneous quest "Flight or Fight." It is patrolled by The Rift Guards.
- There is a random encounter spawn point extremely close to the mill, on the road west of Grosta and Leifnarr's house. If the random encounter includes hostile NPCs, they may travel down the road into the mill and start attacking the inhabitants.
This section contains bugs related to Heartwood Mill. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- Grosta carries the Wabbajack, Skull of Corruption, and Dawnbreaker. These can be pickpocketed but turn into bread in the Dragonborn's inventory. The bread cannot be removed as it is marked as quest items.
