Skyhold is a portion of the Halls of Valor which are located high up in the clouds above Stormheim. Skyhold was set aside by Keeper Odyn as their order hall and as a staging point for the Valarjar to bring the fight to the Burning Legion.



The Skyhold is entered via a central zone, which leads to four sections - Eye of Odyn, Forge of Odyn, Arena of Glory and The Great Mead Hall. Finna Bjornsdottir, Ragnvald Drakeborn, Valarjar Aspirants and Valkyra Shieldmaidens are standing around the entrance to the Skyhold, while Val'kyr of Odyn can be seen flying above.

Einar the Runecaster, Fjornson Stonecarver and  [Light's Heart] can be found at the north side of the entrance in front of the three stone tables: Saga of the Valarjar, The Favored of Odyn and The Legend of Odyn. Einar will offer upgrades to the class hall, while Fjornson will help research the weapons. On the opposite side, Keeper Thorim is standing in front five pedestals with the unlocked appearances of the artifact weapon appearing above each. At the far end, Master Smith Helgar and Dvalen Ironrune are located besides the Forge of Odyn.

Arena of Glory

The Arena of Glory area is where the class hall leader can place a work order to complete one non-elite World Quest, use the Training Dummys and to fight for a chance to win the  [Skyhold Chest of Riches].

Once every 3 hours Odyn will place the Skyhold Chest of Riches in the center of the arena, warriors entering the arena will be flagged for PvP and must fight to win the chest. If the chest is not looted in 10 minutes, Hargal the Bladestormer will jump into the area and [Bladestorm] until the chest is looted or he is defeated, which happens when he reaches ~10% health, at which point he will retreat and drop his axe, picking up the axe puts you into a permanent bladestorm, with a huge damage boost. A player will only be able to see and loot the chest if the they choose the 2nd tier Order Advancement option For Honor and Glory.

  • The art and feel of the zone is heavily inspired by Valhalla.


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.
  • Considering some of these are still living to this day, it is possible that other living warriors were meant to be accepted into Skyhold like the Battlelord. The presence of Nazgrim and Thoras Trollbane may also indicate that they were not maybe always meant to be part of the reborn Horsemen. Several of them have a placeholder model, though others such as Anduin Lothar had never appeared in World of Warcraft before.
