Taking Care of Business is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This is the second quest pertaining to the Thieves Guild, acquired from Brynjolf.

ObjectivesEdit

WalkthroughEdit

  • Find the door to the Ratways, located on the lower levels of Riften.
  • In the Ratways, there will be a couple of aggressive bandits, named Drahff and Hewnon Black-Skeever, who will need to be aggressively dealt with.
  • Soon after, drop down to the lower level and destroy the Skeever as well.
  • Now either pick the lock (Expert) on the door to the left or take the path to the right.
  • Shortly, the entrance to the Ragged Flagon can be detected and find Brynjolf at the bar.
  • He will instruct the Dragonborn to collect debts from three business owners in town. Exit the Ragged Flagon by the front door, then go through the second archway on the right wall. Pull the lever to drop the draw bridge across the gap and follow the path to exit the Ratways.
  • Whatever order the debts are collected in, the third target will have heard about the previous two and chooses to simply hand over the money when spoken with about it.

There are a few different ways to get the money.

Keerava's debt (in The Bee and Barb)Edit

  1. Speak first to Talen-Jei, a male Argonian. Talen-Jei is likely just inside the door, or upstairs sleeping in his room. Choose the dialog option about talking some sense into Keerava. Then speak with Keerava about giving Brynjolf to convince her to pay the dragonborn.
  2. Alternatively, choose to brawl with Keerava. Win the fight and she'll pay. Accidentally hitting another patron during the fight will give a bounty, and cause Keerava and everybody else to be hostile.
  3. Kill Keerava and loot the 100 gold, but Brynjolf will not be happy about this.
  4. If the other two debts have been collected, Keerava will just give the Dragonborn his money.

Bersi Honey-Hand's debt (in The Pawned Prawn)Edit

  1. With a weapon, attack the urn until it is destroyed in front of him. Then speak with him and he'll pay.
  2. Additionally, challenge him to a brawl. Beat him into submission and he will pay.
  3. Kill him and loot the 100 gold, but Brynjolf will not be happy about this.
  4. If the other two debts have been collected, Bersi will just give the Dragonborn his money.

Haelga's debt (in Haelga's Bunkhouse)Edit

  1. Around the corner from her counter is the statue. Be sure to sneak first to avoid a bounty, and steal the statue. Then speak with her to receive the debt payment.
  2. Brawl with her and she'll hand over the money when defeated.
  3. The Dragonborn can kill Haelga and loot the 100 gold, but Brynjolf will not be happy about this.
  4. If the other two debts have been collected, Haelga will just give the Dragonborn the money.

Once the debts have been collected, return to Brynjolf in the Ragged Flagon. He will invite the Dragonborn to walk with him. Mercer Frey will give the follow up quest Loud and Clear and welcomes the Dragonborn to the guild.

RewardsEdit

After completing the quest and accepting the follow up, "Loud and Clear", a few perks are gained:

Taking Care of Business - TG01
IDJournal Entry
10Brynjolf has promised me more work if I'm able to locate him at a tavern called the Ragged Flagon. Judging from the dangerous nature of its location, it seems as though he's having me perform some type of initiation, but I can't be certain.
  • Objective: Locate Brynjolf at the Ragged Flagon
20After successfully locating the Ragged Flagon, Brynjolf has given me a new assignment. Three business owners in Riften are proving to be a thorn in his side and I'm supposed to teach them the error of their ways. I should speak to Brynjolf about these townspeople in the event that they prove to be as stubborn as I'm expecting them to be.
  • Objective: Collect Keerava's debt
  • Objective: Collect Bersi Honey-Hand's debt
  • Objective: Collect Haelga's debt
50
  • Objective: Return to Brynjolf
200I've dealt with the three troublesome business owners in Riften as Brynjolf had specified. Perhaps now that I've proven my worth to Brynjolf, I can discover more about this mysterious organization that he represents.
