Ruins of Rkund

The Ruins of Rkund are a small Dwarven ruin in the mountains southwest of Riften containing a wispmother and wisps.


The ruins are most easily accessed by passing through the hagraven-infested Darklight Tower and heading southeast into the mountains. They consist of a few broken pillars and collapsed buildings; the one farthest to the east contains an unlocked Dwemer chest. In front of this is a Dwemer floor lantern in a stone pit, with the bodies of two hags lying next to it, along with a few pieces of Dwemer metal and an apothecary's satchel. As you approach the ruins, three wisps will be seen roaming the area. Approaching the lantern will trigger the appearance of their wispmother. The only other items of interest are a few snowberry bushes in the area.


  • The two dead hags may appear with their clothing unequipped.
  • The wisps don’t seem to respawn. ?
