Gandrung Caverns

Gandrung Caverns is a smugglers hideout northeast of Fort Frostmoth.

The entrance can be difficult to spot as it is in some rocks at the north end of a harbor just to the northeast of the fort. Once inside you'll encounter no immediate resistance other than a few rats, but you will soon be attacked by Mus Roscius—a target of The Frostmoth Smugglers quest—be wary, as he can be tough even for high levels.

Most opponents in the cave have a paralysis weapon, so ranged attacks or lots of Cure Paralyzation potions are a must. There are five total smugglers in this cave, including their leader, Gualtierus Spurius, who will offer you a Nordic Axe of Paralysis if you let him go. At the north end of the cave you will find a piece of Raw Stalhrim which can be mined and used to create new armor or weapons.

  • Several chests and crates hold random loot.
  • Despite nearly all of them wearing the uniform armor of the Imperial Legion, the smugglers inside the Caverns do not identify themselves as current or former Legionnaires if you manage to use Calm Humanoid or Chameleon to speak to them.
