In the end, you must interact with the anvil with golden threads strewn over to finish this mystery.

II. Hyrrokin’s Gift World Event

At the south of Uldar you will find a campsite on the hill where a bear will attack a Dwarf called Frodri. You have to kill the bear and help Frodri who will then join you in disposing of a cursed ring given to him by a Jotun witch, Hyrrokin.

V. Carpe Diem World Event Mystery

In Southern Gullnámar to the east of the Sudr Mylna, you will see a house situated by the road. You can claim two things here: a Mystery and a Platinum Ingot. If you go behind the house you will see a Dwarven lady called Liv, who is mourning her dead husband.

You will require the Instant Horde upgrade for the Power of Rebirth to complete this mystery and it costs 5 Silica and 20 Living Spark at the Blacksmith. Once you get this power, use it to revive the dead Dwarf, Bo, and wait. You have to revive him thrice to uncover the truth behind this mystery.

You can refill your Hugr at the Yggdrasil Shrine, which is on the south-east side of the house. After Bo is revived, Liv will walk away and stand near the house. You must talk to her to get the key to the house to finish the mystery.

VI. Gullhild Dwarven Tribute Altar Mystery
