The Crone's Bargain is part of The Sons of Hodir quest chain.


Lok'lira the Crone inside the Forlorn Mine wants you to retrieve the Runes of the Yrkvinn from Overseer Syra.


Yes, it must be the green-skinned prisoner you're after... We might be able to help each other.

You're not going to get the goblin out of here by force. Not alive, anyway.

Among my people I am known as a Yrkvinn, a practitioner of illusions. As you can see, the Hyldnir have made me their prisoner.

If I had my runes, I could make you go unnoticed among them. Further inside, patrolling the mines, you'll find an overseer named Syra. She has my runes. Retrieve them and we'll talk some more.


My runes, <name>? Do you have them?


I wasn't sure you were coming back. I dread to think what will happen to me if I stay here for much longer.


Upon completing this quest, you will have the illusion of a Hyldnir cast upon you while you are in Sifreldar Village, the Forlorn Mine, or Brunnhildar Village. This illusion changes how most Hyldnir NPCs/mobs in these regions regard you, from hostile to friendly.
