Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
The adventure begins with receiving the miscellaneous quest "Search for the treasure of Haknir Death-Brand" when innkeeper Geldis Sadri in Raven Rock mentions the rumour. The quest is closed once the Deathbrand Treasure Map is found on the body of a pirate captain in Haknir's Shoal.

This quest then begins when the Dragonborn reads Deathbrand.
Use the Deathbrand Treasure Map to find the treasure[edit | edit source]
Reading the Deathbrand Treasure Map will reveal the locations of the ancient treasure chests that are marked out on Solstheim. None of the chests are hidden and they are usually guarded by treasure seekers, who have already conveniently dug out the chests.
Note: These chests cannot be found before the quest is started.
The chests can be found at these locations:
- The first chest is right at Haknir's Shoal, guarded by three pirates, yielding the Deathbrand Helm.
- To the north of the Earth Stone two Reavers have landed near the chest, yielding the Deathbrand Armor. Note that their boat contains an Elven Warhammer.
- To the west of Tel Mithryn two treasure hunters uncover another chest but three Ash Spawn contest this, yields the Deathbrand Boots.
- Finally to the north-north-west of the Water Stone three Rieklings are guarding the last chest that yields not only the Deathbrand Gauntlets but also the Gyldenhul Barrow Key to the barrow located on Horker Island on the eastern coast of Solstheim.
