Forging Steel location?

Just wondering if anybody knows where exactly the Forging Steel vision map would be on the world map considering it's not underground or anything weird like Darkrime Delves or some dungeons.

    I'm not a lore- or map-expert, so maybe i've overseen something, but I would say it's north-east of Grothmar, because the instance starts after Grothmar and ends at the east entrace to the Darkrime Delves (north of bjora).

    Thanks for the reply, Now I realize I probably could of seen that had I payed even the slightest bit more attention. But now it makes me think. In the prologue when we follow Bangar a little ways into Shivepeaks pass, why did he even feel the need to go that way with his army if the whole point of the Forging steel vison was to for Ryland's warband to create a supply line through that said area to get closer to Jormag.

    Guess because Bangar knew, he can lead his whole army including heavy equipment over the pass, while leading it through the old unknown ruins would have been a much higher risk.
    Exploring another possible supply-line also makes sense, in case the main line is cut off.

    Yeah that's true, thanks again for your replies!

  • it is north of Bjora marches. Dark time Delves was a dungeon in gwen where we encountered stone summit. It was there new base of operations. There is a POI in Bjora marches with the same name where we find Allmoras grave. Fyi in game map has this map directly west of Grothmar. So it's makes sense.
