There are a few leveled Draugr at the lair as well as a leveled dragon. A few chests can be found with various loot, one to the right of the word wall. Up the stairs to the right (northwest) is a tent with a table containing several soul gems and potions.
In order to help the people of Skaal and free them from the hypnotic state they are under, the Dragonborn must learn the Word of Power: Bend Will, so it can be used on the Wind Stone to break the barrier.
- Saering's Watch is one of the locations to which the Blades will send the Dragonborn in the radiant Dragon slaying quests.
- This place is one of the locations of the quest "Dragon Seekers" given by Farkas or Vilkas.
- With a high Sneak skill, it is possible to sit on the mountain overlooking the area and watch the battle between the dragon and the several draugr which spawn here, thus letting the dragon kill them all and be weakened. In some rare cases, the dragon will die allowing the Dragonborn to skip the fight entirely and focus on the Draugr.
