Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

The Dream[edit]

Wait a while (about a day or two after the previous dream) until Hircine contacts you again. He will tell you about a ceremonial hunt for the Spirit Bear being performed by the Skaal. You are to kill all the Skaal as they track this Spirit Bear and then kill the bear yourself. The ceremony is being performed near the western shore of Lake Fjalding. Once the dream ends you'll find yourself in werewolf form again.

Skaal Trackers[edit]

It might be challenging at first to find the Skaal Trackers, but they are all along the western coast of the lake as Hircine mentioned. You should easily see three campsites in the area, all well lit (Site 1: -173300, 191500; Site 2: -170900, 194100; Site 3: -174000, 195000; all just north of the Gronn cave). The Trackers will appear one by one at each of the sites. Continue to kill them all as they appear (about 10 total). As a werewolf, you have the ability to see any creature/NPC on your local map as a red dot, which is very useful during this portion of the quest.

Spirit Bear[edit]

Once you've killed all the trackers and received the journal entry, you can wait around and hunt for the Spirit Bear. The bear is a large white bear and cannot be easily mistaken for the common bears in the area. It appears just to the southeast (within sight) of the southern-most tracker campsite shortly after the last tracker is killed (-172000, 189000). You'll receive a journal entry when you kill it.

Reward Dream[edit]

Once the Spirit Bear is dead, wait around a bit until Hircine contacts you again. You'll receive his praise and a spell to summon a Bonewolf as your reward.


  • You need not complete this quest in a single night in werewolf form; the Trackers will continue to be hostile towards you as non-werewolf. You can fight them and heal between attacks as normal.
  • After completing this quest, you'll start seeing Horkers dying on all the northern shores of Solstheim. This is related to the next quest. Technically, they should be already dead, but the mechanics of the game do not allow for that. So instead, you'll be treated to the sound of dozens of Horkers' dying moans every time you walk near the shores. This will continue to happen every time you enter these areas from now on.
