Gretchen Fizzlespark wants you to go to Sifreldar Village and rescue 5 Goblin Prisoners.

  • Goblin Prisoner Freed: 5


You have to help us! We were in the middle of an expedition into the mountains to set up a transmission tower when we were attacked.

They looked like Vrykul, except their skin was blue and layered with frost.... and they were all female! They took all the men in the expedition and let us women go. Please, <name>! We think they're being held in Sifreldar, the village overlooking K3.


You will be able to choose one of these rewards

Did you find our men, <name>?


You did it! Our boys are back!


The Sifreldar hyldnir drop a  [Cold Iron Key], which is used for the Rusty Cages in and around Sifreldar. When searching for hyldnir to kill for the quest, head for the buildings; the ones in buildings seem more likely to drop the  [Cold Iron Key] than the hyldnir wandering around.
