  • Outside of the tower, on top of the rampart, is a chest with random loot (scalable by walking on the narrow ledge starting from the north side of the rampart, moving easterly around to the south).
  • Wedding Wreath – In the chamber where the Ash Guardian is confronted, there is a small alcove full of various mushrooms and fungi. Under the wooden walkway is an open box containing the wreath, a couple other hats, and two valuable necklaces.
  • A full set of Skaal Armor can be found in the tunnels after the chamber where the Ash Guardian is fought. In one of the tunnels there is a ramp leading up the side of the chasm, and this is where the armor set can be found, as well as a Strongbox, and a Skeleton.
  • After passing the second magic rune and turning left, a chest can be seen hanging upside down and partially open on the ceiling. It contains a Flawless Diamond and two Coin Purses inside. To obtain them easier, use Telekenesis.

  • The entrance will be blocked with ash until the quest Old Friends has begun.
  • If you plan on keeping Niyya alive, it is highly advisable to clear away the rocks from the rockfall in the previous room, as Niyya has very low health, and the rocks can kill her fairly easily. Alternatively, waiting until she starts to head for the exit and using the "wait" command for a few hours will teleport her outside the fort.
