Trouble in Skyrim

Trouble in Skyrim is a radiant quest which you can only receive from Farkas.

The target location is randomly determined from a list of places in Whiterun Hold that have bosses. It can be any of the following:

  • A Bandit Camp: Halted Stream Camp, Redoran’s Retreat, Silent Moons Camp, Valtheim Keep, White River Watch, Treva’s Watch
  • A Falmer Hive: Shimmermist Cave, Lost Echo Cave
  • A Forsworn Camp: Serpent’s Bluff Redoubt
  • A Giant Camp: Bleakwind Basin, Guldun Rock, Sleeping Tree Camp
  • A Hagraven Nest: Serpent’s Bluff Redoubt
  • A Vampire Lair: Broken Fang Cave, Shriekwind Bastion
  • A Warlock Lair: Fellglow Keep, Rannveig’s Fast

In Brief

  1. Kill the leader of the assigned location.
  2. Return to Farkas.


Farkas has received a contract to clear out a troublesome area. You need to travel there and kill the leader in order for the quest to clear. The quest is randomized and repeatable.
