Dugroth is not so happy as his mother has sent him out to kill a monster. He thinks he can't do it. He hates violence and would rather make weapons instead but he promised his mother to give it a try. Now the problem is that he has misplaced his sword. He asks for help to find it.

Head in the direction the marker go and down by the beach the Vestige will find a sword, stuck into the ground. Go and talk to Dugroth, he'll be nearby the beach. Just seeing his father's old sword fiklls him with courage and he thinks he can manage this. He has prepared the bait, his mother says the beast won't come out of the water without it being placed on the beach.


Dugroth says that now they'll lure the beast out and kill it, easy, right? He's sure this will prove his courage to his mother. The monster, Deathfang, soon comes out of the water, a large wormlike creature and it attacks immediately. But it seems Dugroth's fears overcame him as he ran away at once and the Vestige have to kill the monster alone.

When Deathfang is defeated, go and find Dugroth who is hiding on the beach nearby. He had lost his sword again, pick it up on the way to him. He is excited that the sword was found once again. He does want to be a warrior and make mother proud but he also love smithing. He asks the Vestige for advice. Choose one option and complete the quest.


  • If the choice made is to tell him to follow his dreams, he can later be seen as a smith's apprentice in the marketplace at Port Hunding.
