Forging Bonds

Scott Peers

This quest begins immediately after The Masters. After Havi has found Sindri dead, he seeks to use the opportunity to secure the support of his brother, Brokkr.

Forging Bonds, Dawn of Ragnarok.

Speak with Brokkr

If you’re starting this quest immediately after the last one, you should already be in the Hodda Shelter. From here, you’ll find Brokrr just outside to the east, standing by Sindri’s coffin. You’ll need to speak with Brokkr to begin with, and a cutscene will play during which Havi lies to Brokkr about the nature of Sindri’s death. This may seem like an attempt to ease his pain, but Havi always has other motives, especially when the matter concerns the safety of his son Baldr.

After speaking with Brokkr, you’ll need to talk to Vesall who can be found standing by the coffin. Vesall will inform you that Sindri has hidden his special tools somewhere, but that no one knows where they might be. In particular, it seems Sindri didn’t want Brokkr to have access to the tools if he should die. As Havi is in the mood for forging bonds, he offers to find them for Vesall.

Where to Find Sindri’s Tools

As Vesall stated Sindri may have hidden his tools in a high place, where most dwarves wouldn’t think to look. In this case, the high place is in the nest of a tree to the southwest. You won’t be able to access this nest without using the Power of the Raven, which will allow you to fly into the nest. You’ll find plenty of plants nearby to recharge the Hugr-Rip bracelet, and there are also ravens nearby if you need to kill one to equip the power.

Once you’re in the air as a raven, be sure to land within the nest so that you can access the tools. From here you can go back to the funeral area and give the tools to Vesall. After the brief exchange with him, find and speak with Ivaldi nearby. Havi will attempt to persuade Ivaldi to make a speech in the hopes of easing the tension between Brokkr and Ivaldi. However, Ivaldi, proud dwarf that he is, will only say the words that he thinks appropriate, rather than use the poetry of Havi.

Light the Torches

After the conversation with Ivaldi you’ll need to light the torches surrounding the coffin. You can do this by equipping your own torch from the action wheel, then walking up to each torch to light it. You can then step into the designated spot to begin the funeral cutscene. The cutscene here is a long one during which Ivaldi makes his speech, which seems to go down well with Brokkr and the other dwarves. After the ceremony, Havi invites Brokkr for a stroll so that he can attempt to convince him to help Ivaldi. Brokkr is reluctant at first, but after a few sly words from Havi, he seems persuadable. The quest will end soon after.

(1 of 4) You'll find ravens nearby if you need to equip the Power of the Raven.
