I am trying to become Thane of Haafingar hold/ Solitude.

I cleared out Wolfskull cave, Elisif asked me to take her Husband's War Horn to a shrine of Talos. It shows up as a Misc Journal entry.

Where is this shrine?

I tried taking it to the shrine in Whiterun where the priest was always yelling. No luck, no options to leave the horn there.

I tried following this Guide, I kept and kept on searching. Nothing between north of ritual stone or east of Whiterun resembles what they are talking about. But it is a radiant quest so I think that information might be dated.

This guide says to go to the appropriate shrine.

Our very own guide has no such mention, meaning it should be an easy do.

I have been wandering looking for this shrine for almost 2 hours now real time.

Which shrine of Talos do I need to drop the horn? And more importantly where is it/ How to find it?

  • Have you tried clicking the quest to activate it, then pressing M to have it show you the quest on the map? It should lead you right there.

    Make sure the quest is active in Miscellaneous, and make sure that Miscellaneous is active itself. Then you should see a map marker for it. For me, I was standing on top of a rock, supposedly directly at the marker. I was confused, annoyed, and decided to drop down from the rock and move on. I dropped down to discover that the rock was the top of a small cave. Inside the cave was the shrine. Too easy. Commented Dec 10, 2011 at 22:28
  • You can activate-click them in the miscellaneous list, too.

  • @desaivv you can navigate to the right list, guess with right-arrow-key or D-key but definitely with mouseclick. (See my answer for a new image of the shrine)

It's very hard to find, and the shrine doesn't have its own world marker, but it's there, east of Whiterun under a ledge:

  • It may not have a world marker, but it does have a quest indicator. Commented Dec 15, 2011 at 0:46
