Eric Loyalskull can be found inside a cave to the northeast of the Fornburg settlement. Inside the cave at the map location above you will need to complete a few light parkour segments before you reach the area Eric Loyalskull is situated. When you find Eric you can approach and speak to him to learn why he is inside the cave. After he challenges you to a fight you can accept or decline to comeback later. If you accept a fight occurs.

How to Defeat Drengr

Accept the fight to trigger a boss fight against Eric. Eric wields dual axes and has a higher health pool than enemies you have faced up to this point. If you feel confident you can face him fairly early as he is a easy fight. Be sure to dodge and followup with attacks often and this fight will be over quickly.

When you defeat Eric you need to interact with his body to confirm the kill. During this confirmation Eivor places Eric’s axe on his chest and wishes him to Valhalla. Once this interaction has occurred you will have completed the Drengr Defeated mystery. For your efforts you receive +1 Rygjafylke Mysteries and some XP.
