Talk to either Aela , Farkas , or Vilkas to get this quest, whom I will be calling “ The Circle Members “ from now on. Apparently a group of vampires has been causing trouble in Eastmarch , so we need to clear out Mara’s Eye Pond .

Mara’s Eye Pond is just east of Gallows Rock, or just southwest of the big town of Windhelm . It’s in the middle of a lake, accessed by a trapdoor. Smart! Head inside once you find it. There’s one vampire in here and one fledgling vampire.

They aren’t too hard to best, although they will try to raise a servant and sap your health. Take them out and explore the place to find all sorts of jewels. There are two chests to pick here too, as well as some cages down by the water.

Once they are dead, head back to whatever member gave you this quest and turn it in. You will be rewarded 300 Gold upon completing the quest.

Skyrim is the homeland of the Nords, a fierce and proud warrior people who are used to the bitter cold and mountanous terrain that mark the lands of Skyrim. Wracked by civil war, and threatened by the return of the legendary dragons, Skyrim faces its darkest hour. You must make sense of this maelstrom, explore the frozen tundra and bring hope to the people. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons. You are that Dragonborn.
