Silt Strider Easter Egg Location

  • The tall bug-creature is found in the outskirts of Tel Mithryn, the mushroom-like tower in the southeast corner of Solstheim.
  • Travel south out of Tel Mithryn and follow the path that curves. Eventually, you can find a lone rider at an encampment.
  • The Silt Strider is totally still, but the set-up is exactly what you’d remember from Morrowind — a small wooden bridge leading to the seat.
  • Talk to the rider nearby to learn that, sadly, the Silt Striders are out of commission.

Except that screenshot is from Morrowind (MGSO 3.0?) – Ald’Ruhn’s silt strider port.
