Skyrim: Soljund’s Sinkhole

September 21, 2015 - Skyrim / Video Games

When you first come here, you will be approached by Perth who will warn you not to go into the mine and this will trigger a new quest for you to clear the mine.  Clear the mine and then talk to Perth to finish the quest and get some gold.


Miner’s House: not much of interest in here, but you can steal some stuff if you like.


There is also a smelter here to use to smelt the ore you will find in the mine.


Interior of the sinkhole:

Enter facing north.  You will quickly have the option of going west or east.


West: The tunnel leads to an area with 2 moonstone ore veins.  Here are also 2 draugr, one on the ground level and one on the scaffold above you.  Take a ramp up here to get to the draugr and to find the skill book: Jornibret’s Last Dance (Light Armor).  Then head back east.


East: The tunnel turns north and up to take you to the sinkhole.  From here you have to jump down into the hole to continue.


3 draugr wake up at the bottom of the hole.  Exit to the north into a tunnel that winds around to a room with a draugr, a closed grate, and a lever in the middle of the room.  This lever is a decoy that sets off a trap.  In order to open the grate you need to pull the two levers on each side of the room.


Take the grate to a passage that leads north and up some stairs.  Watch out for the pressure plate in the tunnel.  Open the door at the end of the tunnel to a room with a pool. 3 draugr are here.  This room also has a dead draugr on an altar with some alchemical ingredients.  Exit through a door to the west.


Watch out for the pressure plate just beyond the door.  Then take the stairs up.  Here you can go west or south.  West takes you through a winding tunnel to a room with a chest.  South goes into a tunnel that eventually emerges into a large burial chamber.  A draugr scourge lord is here and the 2 pillars behind his tomb shoot spells at you.  Loot the chest and items on the altar.  There is also a moonstone ore vein here to mine.


To continue take a ramp up to the south.  this will take you past an altar with more loot on it.  Continue around to the east until you come to a ledge overlooking the sinkhole.  From here you can just head back to the entrance.
