Fetch Me That Book! is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This is a College of Winterhold radiant quest where the Dragonborn needs to find a random book from a random dungeon.

WalkthroughEdit

After completing the quest "First Lessons," the Dragonborn can enter the College of Winterhold and find Urag gro-Shub inside The Arcanaeum. He will then give a quest to retrieve a random book out of this list, that can be found inside a random boss-level chest in any dungeon in the game, even if it was cleared before. It is best to avoid picking them up from the boss-level chests before this quest is started may result in a serious bug (see Bugs section). The books needed to obtained in a given random order are:

JournalEdit

  •  PC   360   PS3   If a book is picked up before being given the quest to retrieve it, the quest can not be completed and the book cannot be removed from inventory; also, no more Fetch me that Book! quests can be done. The quest marker will still point to the treasure chest in which the book was originally found. Since quest-related items cannot be dropped, it is not possible to drop the book into the chest again to pick it up once more either. The book cannot be dropped before being given the quest either, since it is marked as a quest item even then.
    •  PC(Fix)   This can be fixed with the console command player.setstage MGR20B 20.
    •  PC(Fix)   As an alternative, this can be fixed in a manner similar to the Amulet of Talos quest. Typing player.drop [book code] 1, then picking up the book, will allow the quest to continue normally.
  •  PC   PS3   For PC with v1.4 or PS3 with v1.8, if the Staff of Magnus Quest is active, the dialogue to give book is not available. Urag will just repeat the same phrase about the current situation at the college.
  •  360   It is possible for Urag to send the Dragonborn to a location which has already been cleared before and doesn't respawn, for example: Lost Valkygg.

    • That is the bug having the book before the quest causes Urag not to know you actually have it (and any other other copys you pick up after too).
    • So I must drop it with console commands
