Skyrim Quest: The Golden Claw

March 10, 2015 - Skyrim / Video Games

Talk to Lucan Valerius in the Riverwood Trader in Riverwood.  Ask him if something happened, and he will tell you about the bandits that robbed him.  Offer to get the Golden Claw back for him from Bleak Falls Barrow.

Head up to Bleak Falls Barrow.  Go through the barrow until you find Arvel caught in the webs of a frostbite spider.  Cut him down and he will run off, only to be killed by the draugr waiting below.

Loot his body for the Golden Claw.  At this point you could technically just go back and complete this quest, but it is generally better to continue through the barrow to Bleak Falls Sanctum and get the Dragonstone in order to complete the quest Bleak Falls Barrow for Farengar in Whiterun.

The Golden Claw quest is not part of the main quest line, and you could easily skip this quest, but it does allow you to become friends with Lucan and Camilla and it provides a quick gold boost early in the game.  Also, because it can be completed without doing anything extra while also doing the Bleak Falls Barrow quest, there really isn’t a good reason to skip it.
