- Where To Find Eorlund Gray-Mane in Skyrim
- How to Spawn Eorlund Gray-Mane with Console
While traveling through the ancient world of Skyrim, players will encounter many different NPCs, but interaction with Eorlund Gray-Mane can be relatively problematic. As a Master of Blacksmith, this NPC will become your mentor in the Smithing craft, offer to complete several quests, and even help you create powerful late-game equipment. But by chance or at the whim of the Gods, he can very suddenly leave the world of the living.
Due to dubious in-game ideas from the developers, Eorlund may die before you complete your cooperation. This situation may confuse you, but we are here to tell you how to find this NPC for the first time and interact with him after death.

Where To Find Eorlund Gray-Mane in Skyrim
To find Eorlund Gray-Mane in Skyrim for the first time, players must travel to Whiterun and get to Jorrvaskr. To the northeast of this majestic building, you can climb the steps leading to the Skyforge, where you will find the best blacksmith in Skyrim. But also, rarely, Eorlund can walk in the Jorrvaskr building.
At first glance, it may seem that finding this NPC is very easy, but as we said earlier, he can suddenly die. The random event of a dragon attack will lead to the death of the great blacksmith, and the most unpleasant thing is that you cannot prevent it in any way. Moreover, this event can happen after your first meeting almost any time.
The death of Eorlund will end the opportunity to advance any questline for this NPC, and you will have to collect a symbolic reward by visiting his wife. But she will not be happy that you are asking her about her deceased husband.

How to Spawn Eorlund Gray-Mane with Console
Although the death of Eorlund Gray-Mane is not an in-game bug, this event can ruin many players’ plans. Therefore, if you do not disdain to use console commands, you can fix this situation:
- Press the ~ button to open the console panel.
- Type player.placeatme 0001A683 or player.placeatme 00013B9D and press Enter.
- By completing these steps, you will spawn a new Eorlund. For authenticity, we recommend doing it near Skyforge.
It is worth noting that you can verify the death of Eorlund Gray-Mane only by talking to his wife. This NPC may rarely visit other locations, or you may not notice him. Therefore, if you are not sure about the death of the blacksmith and cannot find him, try the console command player.moveto 0001A683. This command will teleport you to Eorlund if he is alive.
Why You Should Revive Eorlund Gray-Mane?
There are quite a few reasons why you should revive Eorlund Gray-Mane. This character is your mentor in the Smithing craft. So, if you haven’t increased this skill to 90 levels, reviving makes sense. Additionally, if this NPC dies before you complete the Purity of Revenge quest, you can not craft Nordic items.
Note that the revival of Eorlund will lead to contradictions during dialogues with him and his wife. But if you want to get Skyforge-forged items, you’ll have to put up with some unpleasant consequences.
