Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Tovisa asks you to avenge her lost eyes by killing the hagravens of Northwind Mine and destroying their coven. There are three hagravens in the mine: Dyta, Jadwiga, and their matriarch, Kasmira. To kill the matriarch, you'll need to take out the other two hagravens, who are twins. Mounting their heads on spikes should be enough to anger the matriarch. However, you'll need to lure the twins out of hiding before you take their heads. You can lure Dyta out of her lair with fresh Reachman eyeballs. Jadwiga can be provoked by killing her two attendants. You can complete these tasks in whichever order you please. If you took Gnarled-Root's Hagraven Ward, you can use it to stun the hagravens for a few seconds in battle.

To lure Dyta out, kill nearby Reachmen or loot them from dead bodies. Each action will give you two Eyeballs. Once this is finished, go to the northern section of the cave and place the eyeballs in the Offering Bowl. Dyta will show herself. Kill her and take Dyta's Head.

To lure Jadwiga out, go to the southern sector and kill her two attendants, Brunna and Konia. Jadwiga will appear, and you can then kill her. Take Jadwiga's Head once you've killed her.

When you have both heads, take them to the western chamber to lure Matriarch Kasmira out of hiding. Place the sisters' heads on the spikes and Matriarch Kasmira will appear. Once she's dead, Tovisa and Porath will appear. Break the barricade covering the door in the back of the matriarch's chamber, then lead them out of the mine. Complete the quest by talking to Tovisa outside. Porath will lead her back to Shor's Stone. Tovisa would appreciate it if you stopped by to visit some time.
