  • 40 gold
  • ?? items



Upon the discovery of the fiance's body you will happen across an ambush of wolves, if you have never experienced this while out in the wild your best bet of dealing with these enemies is by using Igni as crowd control. This will help deal a wave of damage to the pack and give you some breathing room.

Notes & Trivia


*Upon discovery of the body the quest is updated, then immediately failed for the deliver-bad-news-part. It seem that not having this as the active quest triggers the failure. Select it in your quest menu and do not stride far and you will be able to finish it.


After turning in the quest with the woman she will start walking towards her dead fiance's body. When she reaches it she can be seen tending to the corpse.
