A decaying fortress nestled on a cliff north of Gran Soren, also known as "The Stone of the North".
Appears to serve as a northern strong point for Gran Soren troops.
Ser Daerio is the leader of the Windbluff Tower men, the other soldiers are :
- Ser Alastair
- Ser Anso
- Ser Castor
- Ser Chesleigh
- Ser Edmonde
- Ser Francis
- Ser Gabrian
- Ser Gordan
- Ser Mirek
- Ser Palotti
- Ser Peregrine
- Ser Sandro
There are several chests around the tower :
- Two chests in locked room: Meloirean Plate, and Meloirean Helm - requires the Windbluff Tower Key .
- In the basement of the ruined main tower.
- The chest on far end of the South wall, by the breach: Coin Pouch, Harspud Juice, Flammica, Iron Helm, Broadsword.
- The chest on the North wall: Large Coin Pouch, Imperial Acid, Chain Mail, Iron Cuisses.
The soldiers stationed here have Escort Quests that start from the Union Inn notice board in Gran Soren. They are available as early as the quest Lure of the Abyss, except for the fort's commander Ser Daerio, whose escort quest will start at a later point. Ser Gabrian and Ser Castor both want to go to the Miasmic Haunt. The other soldiers all want to go to Hillfigure Knoll. Quest rewards are special arrows, or 10,000 gold.
- "A stronghold, here? What could it be meant to defend?"
- "The best men in the strongest hold are powerless without supplies to live on."
- "Even the dragon's coming is not enough to unite men's hearts as one."
- "The walls bear heavy scars... I fear 'tis too late to mend them."
- "Gran Soren guards, so far from the capital?"
- " 'Twas once a place under heavy watch. Best we were no less vigilant now."
- "Seems the duke aims to ring all Gransys with strongholds..."
- " 'Tis weary work, standing guard in hostile lands. Morale can falter..."
- The guards here are visibly slimmer than the ones at the capital, indicating that they see action more often, and feast less frequently.
- During the Pride Before a Fall quest to aid Mercedes against the rebellion here, Windbluff soldiers can be seen fighting against Gran Soren's army. This is a "special event" battle and none of the soldiers will stay dead as a result of any action taken during the quest. They also cannot kill each other; as one soldier falls another will take his place. The Arisen cannot speak to the soldiers who are fighting.
