You can get the miscellaneous quest by visiting Moss Mother Cavern for the first time. Outside, you’ll find a man named Valdr outside who will beckon you to come over to him. He’s hurt and advised he and two hunter friends drove a bear into the cave before being jumped by Spriggans. Heal him up by either using magic or giving him a potion, then tell him you’ll join him to recover his friends bodies in the cave to start.

Head inside and you’ll see Ari, one of the hunters, dead on the ground. Up ahead is a Spriggan for you to take out. Past that down the corridor is the bear. If you’ve got ranged you can attack it back where you took down the Spriggan to protect yourself (if you can’t go toe-to-toe with bears yet that is). Once you take it out you can find Niels body by where it was. You’ll surely notice the lake here. By the lake’s shores another Spriggan will show up, and if you take the right path up a ways another one will show up, so use that knowledge to fight them one at a time.

Once they are both dead, Valdr will thank you and give you ‘VALDR’S LUCKY DAGGER’, which is a steel dagger that has a chance to critically hit 25% of the time. Now go up the right path to find a chest to loot before you leave. That’s the end of this 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.
