This section contains bugs related to Balgruuf's War Axe. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  • Sometimes, the quest may glitch and allow one to keep the war axe.
  • If one tries to place the axe on a weapon rack while having a regular steel axe in the inventory, it will place the regular axe on the rack first.
  • If the Dragonborn talks to Legate Quentin Cipius instead of Balgruuf at the end of "Message to Whiterun," the axe will remain in the inventory.
