- Enter the Riften Warehouse and Find the Letter Shipment's Ready.
- Read the Shipment's Ready to begin the quest.
- Speak to the Jarl of Riften.
- Go to Cragslane Cavern and clear the area.
- Report back to the Jarl.
- If control of Riften is handed over to the Imperial Legion during "Season Unending," or if the Dragonborn sided with them during the Civil War questline, then they will need to speak to Maven Black-Briar after reading Shipment's Ready, as she will become the new Jarl.
This section contains bugs related to Supply and Demand. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
Not Able to Complete QuestEdit
If you successfully clear the Cragslane Cavern prior to obtaining this quest, you will not be able to complete it. Best bet is to make sure you obtain the Letter from the Riften Warehouse and read it to start the quest before even attempting to explore the Cragslane Cavern. This will ensure no problems are encountered as some have even reported that entering the cavern and engaging the enemies there will cause this bug/glitch.
There have been many reports stating that you have to kill 7 people to complete the quest. If you have already cleared Cragslane Cavern then you most likely already killed the 7 people inside. To complete the quest you simply have to kill the 3 people that have respawned when the cave reset, wait 30 days or so for the cave to reset then repeat until you have killed 7 people in Cragslane Cavern. The quest should then complete upon killing the seventh bandit. (Confirmed on PC)
Another way to make sure to kill 7 bandits in one go is to use the console command
resurrect, whilst selecting a dead bandit. The bandit lives again, and you can kill it again to complete the quest. (PC)
After waiting for well over a month for the cave to respawn (with no success) I traveled back to Riften to see if maybe I could find work clearing out Cragslane Cavern again. Upon speaking with Hemming Black-Briar in the Jarls palace, he offered me the Honeyside property without having to become thane.
The Raid Quest Not in JournalEdit
There has also been word that there could be a problem with obtaining this quest if you don't already have the The Raid in your journal.
PC Console InformationEditIf you would like to advance through the quest by using the PC Console Command simply enter:
setstage FreeformRiften20 [#]where [#] is the number of the stage that you wish to set as complete. Be careful however as it is not possible to set the stages as not completed once done.
