Throat of the World is a location that appears in The Elder Scrolls Online. It can be found in a brief form in the game, and is part of the quest, Where the Frostheart Grows. The entire mountain makes an appearance, however, the long stairway was blocked due an avalanche that blocked the way, even hurting pilgrims.[1]


Where the Frostheart GrowsEdit

A pilgrim is dying in Ivarstead. A healer named Mizrali thinks she can save him with a rare plant called Frostheart Blossom that grows along the steps to the Throat of the World. I should try to track one down.
