Halgrind is under Forsaken control.

Halgrind is a vrykul town found in Howling Fjord, [50, 52]
being exposed to a new plague being designed by the Royal Apothecary Society. When the Forsaken took control of the town[1], the chieftain, Thorvald, fled.

The remaining vrykul, while not dropping dead from exposure, found themselves trapped and slowly killed off by players.


  • It may be a possible reference to "Helgrind" from the Eragon series of books by Christopher Paolini.
  • It could also be an amalgamation of the words "Hael", the Old-Norse word for Hell, and "Grind", the Swedish word for gate. As the vrykul are themselves a reference to vikings, it would seem very appropriate.
