Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Achievements

Solstheim Explorer

Discover 30 locations on the island of Solstheim  

For this achievement you need to have discovered 30 seperate locations on your Solstheim map. An undiscovered location on your HUD radar will be a black image with a white outline. To discover it you need to walk up to it until you get an onscreen message saying for example, 'Brodir Grove Discovered', in large white writing. When a location is discovered, the image on your HUD radar will turn into a white image with a black outline.

You will travel to a minimum of 10 locations just doing the main quest, but travelling to your quest destinations will undoubtedly allow you to discover more locations.

You only need 30 locations and there are a total of 58 in Solstheim, so there are more than enough to obtain the achievement without much effort.

They said they wanted to make their DLC More of an expansion, sounds like they're doing just that.

Super easy to get, just walk around right as you get on Solstheim and you'll naturally find a ton of places.

@1, yeah there is 48-50 total locations. Some might argue that Solstheim is bigger than Oblivions Shivering Isles.

SO, I ahve to say, walking around, the world looks great. When i found Fort Frostmoth, i was like.. Nice... and Raven Rock i remember walking around Morrowind and finding vilalges just like this one. The best part of it all.. you get to see the Red Mountain in the distance.

Very easy, just wander Solsthiem, you can do it in your first 20 minutes on Solsthiem and first 2 hours on the game.
