The Forgemaster’s Fingers | Side quests

This section of our guide to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim provides a comprehensive walkthrough of the Forgemaster’s Fingers side quest. This quest is associated with the orcs and can be obtained at any of their camps. The orcs will request that you retrieve the Forgemaster’s Fingers, which is a unique artifact.

Initiating the quest

Note! This mission is exclusively available for non-Orcs!

To obtain this mission, you must travel to one of the orc camps located throughout Skyrim. The orcs are not particularly fond of outsiders and tend to keep to themselves. Their camps are situated on mountain slopes near the borders of the land. These camps are marked on the map below.

Map legend: 1 – Dushnikh Yal; 2 – Mor Khazgul; 3 – Narzulbur; 4 – Largashbur.

When you enter any of the camps, you will be greeted by a guard. As long as you remain courteous, you will not be attacked. Ask how to gain entry and you will receive the mission to locate The Forgemaster’s Fingers. The artifact can be found in a randomly chosen location, so be prepared to engage in a brief skirmish with a group of adversaries. The item can be found inside a chest.

Upon delivering the Fingers to the quest giver, you will be granted access to any of the orc camps and may use the services provided within (trading, training, crafting). From this point forward, the orcs will regard you as a blood brother.

It should be noted that there is no leader in Largashbur, and as a result, you cannot initiate this quest there. However, you may still receive the Daedric quest The Cursed Tribe.
