Notable Loot (Ruunvald Temple) Edit
When entering the temple, the Dragonborn may find a large world hole which, if he falls into it will bring him to a different area in the temple.
When activating the associated quest, the marker will appear above the undiscovered location on the map but the world compass will be directing the player toward Riften instead. This is fixed by entering and exiting Riften.
