Onmund's Request is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: SkyrimOnmund needs help retrieving an amulet that he received from his distant family.

WalkthroughEdit

To begin this quest, the Dragonborn must speak to Onmund after completing "Under Saarthal." He can be found in the Hall of Attainment. He will mention that he wants to retrieve an amulet, which was given to him by his family.

Onmund traded this amulet to one of the College's shadiest vendors, Enthir. He regrets this decision, and wants the amulet back as a reminder of his family, despite them not being very close.

Speak with Enthir, and he will decline to return the amulet; stating that all trades are final. However, with a high enough skill level in Speech, Enthir can be persuaded to return the amulet, thus updating the quest. Note, however, that the Speech skill needed to convince Enthir to give up the amulet is very high (90+), so it may not be possible to pass the Speech check at lower levels.

If the Dragonborn is unable to persuade him, after some argument he will agree to give the amulet back if the Dragonborn can retrieve the Grand Staff of Charming. This staff can be found inside a radiant location, which will be marked on the map.

After retrieving the staff for Enthir and returning the amulet to Onmund, the Dragonborn will be rewarded with Onmund's friendship. Completion of this quest also marks Onmund as a marriage candidate, as well as a follower.

  • If the staff is found before being prompted by the quest, the quest may not update and the staff will not be able to be turned in or removed from the inventory.
    • It can be fixed by putting it on a weapon rack and picking it back up.
    •  PC   The console command "setstage MGRAppOnmund01 30" will set the quest to the step where you the staff has been acquired.
    •  PC   The console command "player.drop 00029b91 1" drops the staff from the inventory. It can then be picked up again to advance the quest.
  • If the staff is placed on a weapon rack before delivery to Enthir, the quest may not allow it to be delivered.
  • Depending on the order in which you talk to Onmund and Enthir, after returning the staff to Enthir and getting Onmund's amulet, you may be unable to return the amulet to Onmund.
    • Exiting and returning will clear this glitch.
  • If the staff was supposed to spawn in the shrine to Clavicus Vile, and you already cleared it in "A Daedra's Best Friend" quest, the staff will not spawn, and the quest finder will not appear when the quest is activated.
  • When going into Morvunskar, there is a chance Sanguine will appear and his portal. Going into the invisible portal you are stuck there because Sanguine is not there to teleport you out.
  • As of Update 1.4, there are two staffs in the chest and upon acquiring them, the quest does not advance automatically and it is impossible to give the staffs to Enthir.
    • A possible fix for PC users is to use the console command: "setstage MGRAppOnmund01 30" - Enthir will give the player the amulet but will not take anything from the player's inventory.
  • After receiving the quest from Onmund, when attempting to talk to Enthir all he responds with is "This isn't going to be good for business". This acquires a stuck position on the quest.
  • A fix for PC users is to use the console command: "Setstage MGRAppOnmund01 40" - The quest is completed and you will receive the amulet.
