The seventh skill challenge found in the Wayfarer Foothills is located at Svanir’s Dome. This is a pretty tough skill challenge. First the skill challenge is located in an area swarming with the Sons of Svanir. Once you’ve reached the skill challenge location, you’ll interact with Bjord’s Banner, which will start a brutal fight. To win the skill point, you’ll have to defeat Bjord Frossenson and his two minions. The two minions are easy, but Bjord is a tough cookie. Make sure you’re fully prepped before you start the fight. While Bjord doesn’t do anything special, he does hit hard and has a lot of hits. If need be, slow him down and kite him around to give your healing ability time to cooldown.
