Silorn is an Ayleid Ruin southeast of Skingrad and south of the gro-Bak Camp in the West Weald. It sits at the head of the Strid River. Sprawled across a wide area, ancillary ruins can be found near the waterfall to the west across a wooden bridge.

An impressive site, more of Silorn stands than in many Ayleid ruins and few are larger.

Plant lifeEdit

Common plants of the West Weald are scattered across the site with columbine and flax being most abundant. Some nightshade and viper's bugloss are there, there is even a dragon's tongue plant.


Silorn is inaccessible until the quest "Ambush" is accepted from Hannibal Traven. Inside Silorn three Varla Stones can be found, along with an enchanted Ebony Dagger which can be looted from Falcar.
