Vex's Burglary Jobs . She seems to be programmed to fail the player.Edit
I have tried lots of times to successfully complete Vex's Bolli job in Riften but even though I've completed the job without being caught she keeps failing the job. I've tried potions, wearing thief armour, at different times of day, un-equipping weapons, walking, and even though EACH time the stealth "eye" has remained closed the whole time, Vex still fails me. What's going on? Really want to complete this job successfully... Help!!

XBox 360. Side Quest bug. "cleanse the focal points for the magical energies around the college" quest. After cleasing all the focal points with the gloves, the miscellaneous objectives screen says that I must "return to drevis neloren" but when I do so he does not give me reward or even open a discussion screen and the "return to drevis neloren" says in my objectives. It is basically the same thing that happens with the Urag gro-Shub booking finding missions. the arrow is above his head but he wont talk about the quest. dont see anyone else having this problem through a google search. maybe the bug only occurs when you try to do the quest after Ancano has taken over the college, since that is where i am. I am at "the staff of magnus" quest, having completed "containment" but not started "staff of magnus."
Twilight Sepulcher Bug
When on the Darkness Returns theives guild quest if you leave the Twilight Sepulcher you cant get back in.
If you leave then level then enter agen you cant enter the inner sanctum.
Platform : Xbox 360
Diamond Claw Bug Edit
In the quest "The World Eaters Eyrie," the diamond claw needed to open the door does not appear on the draugr guarding the door, nor does it appear anywhere in the dungeon. I'm playing the Xbox 360 version. I am unaware if this happens on any other systems. If this happened to anyone else, or if anyone knows how to fix this, other than reloading a previous save, (I've tried this several times) please let me know. (Hi This Is Alban Ghost and im also on 360 and had no problem with the claw it was there for me the only bug i have is i cant be the guild master.)
NOTE: On the xbox 360 (other systems unknown) the diamond claw door does not open when the proper combination of pictures is completed and the diamond claw is inserted into the door, it acts as though the combination is wrong.
1st the rings didn't move and then when I went out and back in, the rings moved but the combination does not work. I tried them all. Is there a fix? 22.214.171.124 01:26, January 6, 2012 (UTC) Jason Prosser
Fix for "Reunification of Skyrim" (non-responding Leggate Rikkit issues) Edit
Now for those who are having issues with getting the "Reporting for duty" option from the Legate during the reunification of skyrim quest, I have a possible fix!
Now some were able to do a few fixes, like attacking her followed by sheathing their weapon etc. but none of these worked for me. HOWEVER I accidently stumbled upon a solution
1-Become a vampire
2-Obtain stage 4 vampirism (maxed vamp level)
3- Summon a familiar (a permanent one would be the most useful, like Lucien Lachance)
4-Cast an invisibility spell on yourself ( I used the one you receive from the Thieves Guild Questline, Shadowcloak of Nocturnal (correct name?).
5- Fast travel to the camp.
What should happen is the soldiers and the legate will attack your summoned being (since you are level 4 vampirism, you are an enemy to most npc's). Once your summon dies then they will sheath their weapon (don't try to attack back and remain invisible!). After this go and feed on a sleeping soldier (or somebody else) to remove your level 4 vampirism. Make sure they dont see you or thy will become hostile to you! After that happens talk to the legate and you should have your quest! It worked for me on the xbox 360 version of the game.
For thoes that are wearwolves you can do basicaly the same mentioned above to fix this but instead
1. go to the camp and transform
3.once far enough away wait 24 hours or 2 mins real time to turn back to human
4.talk to leggate
The werewolf transformation does work. Thank you so much. (Xbox)
Unfortunately this is not a fix but I found a few "inconsistencies" that may contribute to the cause of this bug.
Firstly, after capturing Fort Dunstad if you fast travel to the Winterhold Imperial Camp (BEFORE talking to General Tullius) and talk to Legate Rikke, she will reward you with gold for completing the quest and say she knew you could count on you. The dialouge options to ask her what you're supposed to be doing however are still available so it seems that while she may reward you for finishing the quest it still may be considered active.
Secondly, after talking to General Tullius, he promotes you to the rank of Praefect but if you fast travel to the Winterhold Imperial Camp, Legate Rikke and all the other Imperial Soldiers at the camp will address you as, "Tribune." This may be an issue as the game is listing you at a rank that is different than the rank you should be in order to be able to recieve any further quests. Adding onto that it may be as well that all the Tribune quests can only be recieved once all the previous quests have been completed and thus why no quest dialouge is available at all.
I understand this may not be related at all but was just a few inconsistencies I noticed happening at the same time as the bug.
Another Possible Fix that worked for me is to activate the cooking spit in the camp. This, for some unknown reason, triggers the Reporting for Duty Dialog option to appear when you talk to her. It is a simple WTF? fix for the questline but needs more confirmation for other systems as well as the one I did it on, Xbox 360.
An easy fix for me was casting Frenzy on Legate Rikke so she would attack the other soldiers and then calm them all by casting Pacify on them. After that, the option immidiately popped up.
Xbox 360. Side Quest bug (or not). I was the one who reported the bug on "cleanse the focal points for the magical energies around the college." It turns out that i was correct that it had something to do with where i was in the progression of the main Winterhold college quests. but incorrect that it was a bug. When ancano has taken over the college, everyone there is pracitcally incapable of doing anything, including quest completions. In fact its quite funny to watch the NPCs cower in their chairs (literally) during this period. after finishing the main winterhold college quest line, i was able to get my reward for the focal point cleansing. so i guess its not a bug, but certainly unnessecary IMO. im running around saving the college, doing all the hard work, and these hacks cant even sit there and give me a reward because they are too scared... silliness.
Follower Commands Bug - PS3 Edit
Tested on the PS3 version of Skyrim with current patch, changing the default buttom set for "Activate" which is the "X" button will possibly make the Follower Commands no longer work, for instance I have a very specific button preset that I use which has "Activate" set to the "O" button, and when I went to use the Follower Commands the follower would simply stand there without doing anything, to workaround this simply set "Activate" back to the "X" button.

Enchantments stays to base magnitude (PS3)
I have a problem with enchanting skill. Leveling up this skill and add perk to "enchanter" has no effects on enchantments power. By exemple, I put two points to enchanter perk, so my enchantments should be 40% more powerful, but it stay to the base magnitude (+13% Fortify one-hand by example). Earlier in the game, when I set the first point to enchanter perk, the power of enchantment increesed correctly (+13% increesed to +15% for the Fortify one-hand effect by example), but when I added a new point, power of enchantments came back to the base magnitude. This is really anoying because I cannot use enchanting at all. Germinal (talk) 10:58, December 6, 2011 (UTC)
Dialog Glitc Edit
DIALOG GLITCH ELDER KNOWLEDGE
We have a glitch which doesn't let us by anything or talk to someone properly. It started when we talked to Septumus Signos for the Elder Knowledge quest and we can only talk to him up until he says what Blackreach and How to get there. Can someone please help.
this also happened to me , i cant buy anything and you tel some1 to do something and they dont , i just completed tlking to septumus like u PLEASE SOME 1 NEEED HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After i found Esbern he didnt talk, then id downloaded a fix and extracted it, Esbern finaly talked normal but now the rest of the people talk f*cked up!! how can i fix this?
Following Brynjolf Edit
The part where you have to follow Brynjolf to the Ragged Flagon. It might not be a bug after all.
Here is what to do: Just after the ring hiding quest, talk with Brynjolf. He tell to meet at the Ragged Flagon. Go down to Ratway and kill the enemies until the bridge. You should hear Brynjolf saying to you to find another route (he is there just before the bridge). At the bridge drop down and quickly kill the enemies (this is the real bug: you have to be quick or he will leave).
After you've quickly killed the enemies, quickly check your map to see the pointer to Brynjolf. He should now be in the room with door to Ragged Flagon. For me he was just standing in the corner of the room. Don't use the "wait" option here or he will leave back to marketplace! Instead quickly run to Ragged Flagon, and wait. When I waited for 24 hours he appeared.
But yeah it has bugs, also the one where the people are talking to Brynjolf even when he is not there (yet).
Magicka Regeneration Exploit Edit
Not sure how repeatable this one is, but when I went to the college of magic in winterhold, I talked to the Dunmer Illusionist trainer (Drevis Neloren), and asked if there was anything I could do. He gave me Magick gloves of attunement (which I equipped) to use to clear out the energy wells. When doing so I got a handful of soul gems, and one time the screen and controller shook instead. I looked at my active effects and it said the name of the effect was "Drain Magicka", but it wasn't in Red. The effect said it was +25 to Fortify Magicka for a duration of 2 hours, and listed a time remaining of one hour. At that point my magicka regenerated at nearly double speed so I started spamming Muffle (It regenerated the necessary magic as quick as it took to charge and cast) while I talked to people in winterhold and within about 10 minutes went from Illusion 50 to Illusion 70. After completing the energy well cleanse I spoke to Drevis Neloren again and it removed the gloves from my inventory, but now my magicka regeneration was even FASTER. My magic regens so fast now that I can cast healing with one hand, and a frostbite/spark/flames with the other and it will regenerate while I cast so fast that with 200 magicka I can continue to cast for about 6 minutes before it finally runs out. 10 seconds later I'm ready to dual cast them again. My magicka will regenerate in full in pretty much the same time it takes to charge and cast any spells I have, so I can endlessly spam any magic I have as long as I have sufficient magicka to cast it. I have fast travelled, equipped new gloves, and run out that "2 hours" on my previous enchantment without losing the effect. :::Note- this is on the PS3 after the patch 1.2::: Jolly Llama - 126.96.36.199 13:57, December 6, 2011 (UTC)
(Another user) I also noticed this exploit and was overjoyed thinking that I had somehow become a consumate mage. I was trying to figure out what had triggered my seemingly limitless well of magicka. Unfortunately, the effect eventually wore off for me. Yes, I felt sad.
(Another user) I got that on the PC version on the latest patch as of December 23, 2011.
Bookshelves not working after patch Edit
It's confirmed in many pages on how many ways it breaks.
However, I notice that if you have a save before the patch and you have already started using the bookshelves in that save, those particular bookshelves will still work after the patch. I don't know if this applies to everyone.
I would also want to know more about, is there anyone who has the bookshelves working? What order did you upgrade your house? Or, what did you do to get it right?

Dragon Glitch Edit
I have a problem with the dragon glitch right now. I tried loading my previous saves several times and I still have this problem. Now when a dragon attacks it flys in circles out of reach of anything I can use. Which prevents me from fast traveling and waitng until the dragon leaves (which takes about 20 min). How can I fix this problem now?
I'm personally wondering if the Dragon Glitch wasn't intentional. I chased a dragon for five minutes - anytime I stopped moving forward, it stopped, and anytime I ran backwards, it would either sit there or return to acting random. When I took advantage and started shooting Fire Bolts at it while it was distant, at about half HP, it darted off extremely fast and started going upwards, reaching a high point in the sky my blasts could not reach, and then stopped. When trying to get closer via climbing a mountain, I lost sight of it temporarily, where it disappeared. I'm honestly wondering if someone's boss pissed them off while they were developing new code, because that pattern just seems too screwy to be unintentional... Bloodtom1 (talk) 10:45, December 13, 2011 (UTC)
I had this problem and usually the case was that that perticular dragon had a bounty (miscellaneous quest) to collect first.
Major Game Bug Battle for whiterun(SOLUTION) Edit
Jarl balgruuf wont surrender solution ps3. solved
When you are in the final battle agains jarl balgruuf he will surrender to you but the dialog wil not continue and the mission blocks.
After 3 hour of experimenting i finaly have an acceptable solution.
You make sure you kill him close to the door (isnt really nessesary but makes it is easier). Then you wait thill a new storm cloak guard comes through the door. It may take a couple of seconds but he will come. When you and the defeated jarl are in his line of site keep attacking the jarl until you see that 40 gold bounty. For some reason this will continue the mission. You then put away your sword and the guard that just came in will allow you to surrender. Then while in the dialoge menu with the guard you can listen to the drama of the jarl and the grey-Mane.

System Crash Edit
On my PS3, using the latest patch, I've encountered a bug (or at least I think it's one) where after I have used the wait function, my game freezes and crashes. This has occurred appr. 5 times now and the last time I lost some save files (I was set back at least an entire hour of gameplay). So far it has only happened when I'm in or close to Whiterun. Anyone else having this issue?
I'm having the exact same problem. I pretty much can't go to Whiterun. Game completely freezes up on me. I'm not done with that city (major quest lines still to be done) and it's my home base. All my stuff, accumulated over 100+ hours is there. This is completely unacceptable.
Xbox 360/PS3 Retrieval Quest/Swindler's Den Crash Edit
I have come across this bug recently, Aela gives you the quest Retrieval to retrieve a part of the axe wuuthrad from a random location in the game; I had to go to Swindler's Den for the piece of wuuthrad, but as soon as I enter the game freezes on the loading screen 18.104.22.168 04:09, December 8, 2011 (UTC)
Suffering the exact same problem, I noticed that even after finding the reguard woman in Whiterun the Alik'r warriors were still inside, I killed them all and left again just fine but since cannot go in and so have been left unable to continue with the companions.
Confirmed on PS3, too.
Same problem here too. It seems to glitch as soon as the 'Retrieval' quest is started and I think it might have something to do with how the 'In My Time Of Need' quest was completed and, those cursed Alik'r warriors staying inside Swindlers Den. (21:06, December 11, 2011)
Same problem here too -- the Alik'r are still inside, after recieving the "Retrieval" quest, tried entering the den, freezes on the loading screen. I even went back a few saves before recieving the quest to no avail.
Same issue here on PC Windows 7. Go into Swindler's Den, and game hard crashes to desktop. Tried before and after Alik'r as well. (21:29, December 12, 2011). Have tried to get past it for a few days now. Hoping for a patch soon......
Same problem here, game freezes when the loadingscreen pops up when I want to enter Swindler's Den for retrieving the plans in the Companions Quest (Had a game update on 15 dec '12 but it didn't fixed this bug)
Xbox 360 Owner
Same issue on the PS3. I was able to return a couple of times after "In my time of need" Quest with the Alik'r still there, but once I received the quest it will no longer let me inside the Den. I noticed that the quest "Retrieval" can send you to any places for the Object. If someone figures out something, let us know!
Same issue after update, today I began the retrieve quest for the Companions, and fast traveled to Swindler's Den, upon walking into it the game just stays on a loading screen for a very long time.
I had already turned the girl in for the "in my time of need" quest for PS3 (October 18, 2011)
I also remember before getting the Retrieval quest, already coming back here for a seperate task.
So do I avoid this bug until a patch? Or start over? I'm level 10.
22.214.171.124 23:07, December 18, 2011 (UTC)itsme_mg
Same issue, I've been to Swindler's den several times already. I have completed the Quest involving the Alik'r. I killed all the Alik'r and now the game is crashing when I enter the cave during the "Retrevial" quest.
i emailed Bethesda and got this response about the crashing i was getting. after doing as instructed and bownloading the update today it still freezes apon entering swindlers den, but maybe it will help someone.
Thanks for contacting us. Please try clearing both your system and your game cache as the game relies heavily on your console's memory.
To clear system cache Normally you go to My Xbox - System Settings - MEMORY - Device options - Clear System Cache.
Clearing the Game Cache on the Xbox 360 is a separate function from clearing the System Cache. In order to do so, you must hold the LEFT Bumper, RIGHT Bumper, and the X button all at the same time on the Xbox 360 controller as a game is launching. Once you reach the Main Menu or Title Screen of the game, you can let go of the buttons. There will be no notification to you that this process has completed because it is all done passively.
Clearing the Game Cache resolves many problems in games that rely heavily on the Xbox 360's cached memory. Some of these problems include, but are not limited to NPC issues, random textures, and "hitching", "lagging", or "slow gameplay". We deeply apologize for this inconvenience and please let us know if we can further assist you.

Same issue on PS3.
Related but not same. I am experiencing a crash on 360 every time I attempt to enter Hob's fall cave. Started after I was given a companions quest to rescue a Guy from there (name begins with S, works for Belethor in Whiterun). Been there several times before for various reasons (flute retrieval etc). Could be a problem for Barenthiah's stones quest. Also unable to do any more Companion's radiant quests or cure myself in Ysgramor's tomb, it just won't activate (unsure if related).
Someone able to fix this bug allready? Still having this problem. Really annoying. 1st time I tried was ont the 14th of december.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________I'm on the PC and the game is crashing for me as well. I'm trying to do the Companions Retrieval quest and every time I try to enter Swindler's Den, it just crashes to my desktop. Come on Bethesda! Please create a patch! I can't finish the Companion quest without it :(
Also on the PC. I'm on the "Stealing Plans" quest, but I was sent to the Swindler's Den and it crashes to the desktop anytime I try to enter it. I'm level 49, I've already completed the Thieve's Guild, Dark Brotherhood and College of Winterhold quest-lines, but I was really hoping to go through the Companions as well. Problem still here, 13th of January.
Battle for Fort Dunstad/Reunification of Skyrim Empty Fort Dunstad Bug (Xbox 360) Edit
After joining the Imperial troops attacking the fort, the next quest marker moves regularly to the defeat the enemy 100% remaining marker. However, Fort Dunstad is totally devoid of any Stormcloak soldiers to attack. Plenty of in game days have passed and I've cleared up a good few main, side, and miscellaneous quests hoping that would help. The only people in Fort Dunstad are still Imperial soldiers waiting Anyone else experiencing this issue or have a fix to it?
Same issue here at first i didnt even get a map marker so reloaded before i got the quest and redid this time soilders showed up for the legion but when i entered the fort it was empty.
- (PS3) Same issue occured with an empty Fort to attack during the Civil War campaign. Only as part of the Stormcloaks; with orders to attack Fort Sungard. Informed of "Meeting Up with Stormcloak Troops comlete" although none were visible inside, outside, or anywhere in the surrounding landscape. There were also no Legion troops to be found, the quest still stands at "100% of Legion Troops Remaining" and it has been wellover a month in the game, perhaps two. (Possible cause: A dragon attacked Stormcloak camp after recieving the quest and map location marker. No one was killed.) [posted: 12-8-11]*
i am playing on the ps3 version of skyrim and cant start the regain falkreath hold mission on the imparial side becouse legate rikke wouldent let me say "reporting for duty" it is bugged i tried everything none works i want that platinium ffs
Original bug poster here. Play the main quest through to the High Hrothgar peace council, and when Ulfric demands Markath, convince Tullius to take Winterhold in exchange for Markath. This will automatically end the Battle for Fort Dunstad quest as Fort Dunstad will be immediately made an Imperial fort, allowing the Reunification of Skyrim Quest to continue. Just talk to General Tullius to end The Pale section of the quest and he sends you off to The Rift.
After applying the patch 1.4 on PS3, soldiers don't appear, at least if you started the mission after applying it.
Nonexistent Quest Items Edit
I'm having an issue where regardless of what quest I do, if it involves me having to get an item, said item is not where the quest arrow is pointing. It's nowhere to be found. Anyone else have this issue? I'm on a 360
126.96.36.199 01:51, December 10, 2011 (UTC)
More than likely it is because the quest area/item is underground, there are several like that. You should look for a nearby entrance that may lead you in that direction.
Having the same issue (v1.3 on PS3). Started with Thieves Guild Loud and Clear quest, now, also happening on The Pale Lady quest. Not happy! (22 Jan 2012)

Red Eagle's Fury stuck in inventory (Fix) Edit
Red Eagle's Fury After finishing the Red Eagle quest, you can still find the item on a specific Forsworn. After picking them up (it were 3 of them in my case) you are unable to remove them from inventory as it is marked as a quest item. Here is how to remove them anyway: - Open Console using the tilde (~)key - Enter the following line to remove one Red Eagle's Fury: player.removeitem 0009fd50 1 non console equip red eagle's fury activate weapon mount / rack red eagles fury will drop to the floor
System Crash (PC)Edit
Random crashes to desktop especially soon after texture corruption or missing textures is usually because of the 2GB memory limit the exe has hardcoded. There is a loader that fixes this but use it at your own risk. It doesn't modify your game but it can potentially cause other issues though not likely. Look for 4GB Skyrim on Skyrim Nexus.
Hairstyle missing for player. Edit
There is a missing hairstyle from the character creator, its a full ponytail, i have seen it on many npc in the game (most notable being pelagius in the sheogorath questchain). but it is no where to be found on the character creation screen and the nearest thing is one with a balding head.
Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon Daedra Edit
Fast traveled there, killed both Daedra outside and inside, looted everything and left.
Came back after a week in game and now no Daedra respawn, but the items are still spawning at a weekly rate.
Encountered on the 360, Encountered on the PS3.

There is a lot of speculation, lone anecdotes, and superfluous information on the main page. Bugs are often 'iffy' but anything particularly unclear or subjective should be kept to the talk page. Keep the bug listings crisp and to the point as much as possible. Nobody needs to know that you really hate that you encountered the bug. Conjecture should take place here.

word wall glitchEdit
xbox 360: i have encountered a glitch that will not let me gain new dragon words. i noticed something was off first when i went to get a word (some cold or ice word) and everything came up, but the new word was not there in my shouts. i reloaded sevral times trying to fix it, but wouldnt record the word, but it said quest complete for finding it. now, when i go to collect words at wordwalls, i will hear the drumming noise, but the lightshow will not engage and i will not even pick up the word, and will not say quest complete. need help fixing this.
Try saving at the wall and then shutting down Xbox and reloading from save. Worked for me on a bugged wall.
Guard glitch Edit
Ok so i have a 1100$ bounty in white run, which happens to be my home town and i am not finished the main questline so i know im going to have to go back there. unfortunately every time i go to white run the guards start attacking me, which isnt the problem, the problem lies in when i talk to the guards, they give me the option to pay my bounty go to jail or fight, if i pick pay my bounty or go to jail my game freezes. The guard will still keep talking, i will hear people walking in background, and i can still talk to my party, but hitting buttons on controller does nothing and i cant get xbox to respond. I have tried reloading older saves to fix this but so far no luck, im thinking i might have to go back to before i got the bounty but i don't have a clue when i got it ...
Try reloading the game saves until you find one without a bounty. The bounty can be found in the stats menu under crime.
I have the same problem. All my saves have a bounty. I can't go to another save. Is there a patch for the xbox for this yet? It doesn't matter what city. It freezes no matter what option I chose.
'220.127.116.11 04:58, January 26, 2012 (UTC)'I have a similar problem after i completed to thieves guild i went to the companions guild to start that (where i've stolen quite a few daedra hearts) the people ask me to pay my debts and i do but then it just keeps asking me to pay my debts and keeps taking away my money pleasse hhheeeeeelllllppp!!!!
I had this same problem so I e-mailed bethesda.
Thank you for contacting Bethesda Softworks Technical Support.
Please try removing some items from your inventory. If you have any stolen items or iron arrows then store them in a chest before paying the bounty.

Completed Quest Lists no longer update completed quests. Edit
I encountered some bugs where the quest that has been completed will not appear in the completed quest lists. Though the quests did appear in the active lists, but once completed they will be missing from the completed quest list. As far as I know, the last quest I finished was The Cursed Tribe. This is the last completed quest that is updated. After that all the quests were missing. No completed quest were updated anymore. 18.104.22.168 05:13, December 13, 2011 (UTC)
X306- I just got married to Farkas, and after I told him to go live in my house I went to leave the Companion's Hall, every time I do it freezes now and I can't do anything about it. :( My game before this has never frozen.
Follower Glitch Vilkas Edit
After finishing the companions questline, I started one of the quests to cure Vilkas of his werewolfism, so he replaced my current follower. Immediately after it said the quest was completed, and whenever I ask anyone to follow me including Vilkas, they say I already have a follower. I have the glenmoril witch heads and tried going to the tomb of Ysgrammor but nothing has worked. A possible problem is that my old follower had Wuuthraad, the axe needed to activate ysgrammors tomb equipped. I don't know what else the problem could be. Does anyone know a way to clear all your followers? 22.214.171.124 21:24, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Expanding on this.....
If I do the following radiant quest for him and ask for another quest, he will repeat this again. One time i caught him outside and got the quest, then immediately fast travelled to the tomb. I turned around and he was still with me in the process of turning around and walking back again. When i went in anyways, the way was still clear, but i couldnt do anything with the altar, to cure him or myself. Now none of the companions except for Vilkas will give this rotation of quests. 126.96.36.199 21:24, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Alik'r Warrior on Whiterun may not be a bug.. Edit
Here's why i think it's not.
Saadia said that she believes killing Kematu, their leader, would make the rest of the Alik'r Warriors scatter. I tried standing in front of the Alik'r for a few hours, then the commander of the guards passes by complaining saying that "as if Skyrim didn't have enough outsiders.. now we have mercenaries from hammerfell strutting about."
If this was a bug would the guards acknowledge the presence of the Alik'r? What do you think?
They still would... their casual comments like that respond to the people in their surroundings, not necessarily the quest itself. So just the Alik'r Warriors being there should cause them to comment on them being there.
It is a scritping error. Even if that idea surely existed during the dev stage, they are breaking the NPC on screen limit, increasing the chances of system crashes while in the area.
Bows & Weapon Racks Edit
Placing a bow on a weapon rack with multiple spots (say the 2 place one in Breezehome or the 4 place one in Honeyside) may prevent an adjoining space from being activated. Different bows may affect different sides. (Glass affects a spot to the left, Ebony affects a spot to the right.) I suspect the game thinks the bow is using that spot due to it's size, or maybe it's a bounding box issue causing the bow to block access to the weapon rack trigger. (I don't think weapon racks were really intended for bows anyways, they aren't really "held" up by anything.) Workaround would be to put non-bow items in the other slots before putting the bow on. Removing the bow should allow the use of both spots. (PS3 tested in Whiterun and Riften.) 188.8.131.52 09:55, December 15, 2011 (UTC)
Bows/Shivs & Weapon/Shield Plaque Edit
Bows and Shivs do not mount on the plaque that can hold two weapons and a shield. Instead they will float in mid-air somewhere in the room. This does not seem to bug out the plaque as it can still be used to put other weapons and a shield on it. The floating bows can be taken and seem to remain floating if you leave and re-enter. (From what I've seen of how the plaques/racks work, it's a two step process. First the item is removed from your inventory and placed somewhere in the room, second it's moved onto the rack/plaque. In the case of bows & shivs the second part is not happening for one type of plaque.) PS3 tested in Whiterun and Riften.

PETRA & MELKA FUBAR Edit
I decided to leave Melka in her cage and killed Petra without her help. I didn't get creadit for the quest nor did the location show as visited on my map. I went back and let Melka out. She went as far as the room before the swinging blades and then stopped there. She would respond with her usual comments but wouldn't move on. I tried resetting all the switches to their pre-visit positions and then setting them back to the positions that you need to move forward, but Melka sticks in place even after reloading the game. I can see Petra lying on the floor with a quest target icon over her, I've looted her and given her a few extra licks for good measure, but the scenario won't go ahead. 220.127.116.11 20:49, December 15, 2011 (UTC)
Drevis Neloren (the illusion mage) and a bunch of other mages at the college have dissappeared after i finished the main college quest with the eye of magnus.
Now I can't find anybody to sell me high level illusion spells and cant do Neloren's quest. WTF?18.104.22.168 06:05, December 18, 2011 (UTC)
The Way Of The Voice Edit
Actually I have checked to speak with Arngeir at this quest. What bothers me is that no matter how many I shout unrelenting force to Arngeir, he just simply wont talk to me and keep on asking to shout at him. I am stressed with this bug and I have searched for any answers but no answers really solve this bug. Any?
I actually had the same issue. What happened was that i got the shout to count only once and then it didn't count anymore. I then went ahead and left and did some other quest and went back to do this quest and it counted again. but it only counted once more. so i aim the shout at the greybeards and did it a few times, left and did other quest and came back and it was ok...
22.214.171.124 12:47, December 18, 2011 (UTC)
Try just tapping the button as opposed to holding it down for the shout. it seems its pressure sensitive. holding it longer uses a stronger version of the shout. the Graybeards first want you to use the weak shout on them then after you learn the Second word of the shout use powerful version i.e hold the button down. it worked for me 126.96.36.199 15:04, January 15, 2012 (UTC)
I need help!! So talked to Arngier, my quest upddated that I did so and nothing else happened. I went outside and it updated for Eingrth to teach me the whirlwind, but nothing ever happens. I read on the walk through that your supposed to use the relentless force to move spirits and what not around in the middle but I never had to do that and I can't get it to do it. Any Ideas on how to get passed this??
I had trouble with the use of the voice originally too. Turned it of and on again and directed the shouts at them and it worked. But now I cant get the quest to tick over after talking to him. I HAVE spoken to him and asked all his questions but the quest doesn't change! Help!
TOO MUCH SNOW Edit
It wont stop snowing. It started when i left the labyrinthine and has never stopped. I go inside of buildings. Its snowing. Clear skys. Its snowing. Underwater its snowing. I have searched and seem to be the only one with this problem on ps3. Im hoping for something a little more positive that using a previous save.
188.8.131.52 20:30, December 18, 2011 (UTC)Lord Rahl
Eventually the game fixed itself after a couple hours of gameplay and fast traveling.

The Horn of Windcaller, Edit
When I return the Horn to Greybeards and they call me inside. The First (who i return the horn) guy won't move a bit and the second inside won't talk to me. Is there anything else than reload previous save ?
The Battle for Fort Sungard (Bug/Glitch)Edit
There is a major bug on PS3, when asked to join the men attacking fort Sungard, there is no men to join. And even though you've not joined the men and instead want to attack the enemies by yourself, there is no one to kill. If there is any fix to this on PS3, I strongly advise you to post the fix online (wiki, youtube, etc.) as I know that this is happening to a lot of people. The quest line involving the war between the imperial army and the stormcloaks cannot be completed if this bug is not fixed. 220.127.116.11 15:54, December 21, 2011 (UTC)Umar_Jamal
Found a workaround for this problem [PC ONLY] : Go to the fort Sungard and a marker will show up where you're supposed to meet your men. Then type 'SetStage cwFortSiegeFort 10'. Your men will now appear and you can complete this quest.
Possible fix for PS3, load before pick up the quest and do no fast travel right to the fort, travel to another close by location.
Battle For Windhelm [Xbox 360/PS3/PC] Edit
After completing the battle for Windhelm or Whiterun, the battle music will never stop playing. I've found no evidence that a fix exists. 18.104.22.168 06:45, December 22, 2011 (UTC)22.214.171.124 11:08, December 31, 2011 (UTC)
Page is disorganized and needs briefing. Edit
Sorry to say but this article is absolutely horrid. The entire page is an absolute mess and lacks any organization whatsoever, I can't even find the willpower to pursue such drivel. There are random sentences in bold, italized, and in capitals when it simply seems unnecessary and only adds to the cluster. Also, there is an abundance of repetition and the same bugs can be seen with other articles. Also the sheer amount of grammatical, spelling, and puncuation mistakes is repulsive. I strongly suggest that this entire article be revised.
I had learned "Call dragon" in the mission "The Fallen". But after i shout in Dragonreach courtyard., nothing happen. Is this a bug?If so, any solution?
- Relax nerd. What's repulsive is that you care THAT much about people posting their problems to cry like a child for nothing. It's not their fault this game was way to massive for Bethesda just to throw together like they did. Stop being a troll and try posting help tips if you don't want to see this many complaints.
Paratus Decimius glitch? Edit
I have been doing the "Revealing The Unseen" quest, and got up to the part where you meet Paratus Decimius. I collect the Focusing Crystal from the Falmer Nightprowler, and return back to Paratus. I tell him I've found it and he's delighted, but the crystal does not get removed from my inventory and he does not take it. He then tells me to follow him to find the Staff of Magnus, but he does not move. Can anyone help figure out what I've missed or if this can be fixed? Thanks!
126.96.36.199 13:42, December 23, 2011 (UTC)Emily
i had the same problem.Let him walk a litltle and follow him.
- He doesn't walk anywhere and simply stands there. However, I brought him the crystal right at the start of the conversation; I didn't have to go and fetch it as I'd already looted it when looking for the key to reach Paratus. What should I do?
Walk through a building (Xbox 360) Edit
In Windhelm in the Mid-Eastern part of the map, there is a house called "House of Clan Shatter-Shield." When facing it from the gate, go to the front right corner next to the wooden.... clothes hanger? The corner right behind it, you are able to walk straight through and go inside of the building, without loading the area. It's empty and you can see through, but not shoot through, the walls and can walk out of any wall or pick the door lock with no chance of being seen. 188.8.131.52 01:30, December 29, 2011 (UTC)
Jarl of Whiterun Glitch Edit
I have a glitch where the Jarl of Whiterun never leaves Dragonsreach after I defeat him as a Stormcloak. He surrendered, had his chat with the Gray Mane (whos name i forget), and said he will leave in a few hours. The questline ended, and I returned to Ulfric, but I dont have the dialogue option to report in after the battle. So i decided to do other quests in hopes that the bug will fix itself, and I stumbled upon Whiterun still not being available for fast travel. I go there and everything is still on fire, as if the battle is still taking place...but people are out walking in the streets. I go to Dragonsreach and Jarl Balgruuf is sitting in his throne with his advisors...but there are stormcloaks everywhere acting as guards. There is no dialogue option to get him to leave, and I even tried attacking the Jarl again, but the stormcloak soldiers attacked me.

Unable to enter Whiterun/Invisible Whiterun glitch [PS3] Edit
When I first get to Whiterun in the game, there is no guard to greet me at the gate. Instead, it just tells me I need a key.
I have done two things to try and circumvent this.
Once, I have gotten myself arrested, served my time in jail, and emerged to find Whiterun gone. There are people, there are floating doors, but no buildings or staircases, which makes it impossible to reach the Jarl.
The second time around, I started a new game, and the same thing happened. Instead of getting myself arrested to try to get in, though, I instead pickpocketed the Whiterun gate key from Aela, but the same thing happened when I entered the city.
I've seen that some other people have had this problem, but they always blame it on the fact that they must've accidentally killed the guards. It's impossible, however, since I have killed none.
Jarl Elisif of Solitude won't show up Edit
I am on the Xbox 360. I was doing the quest Tending The Flames (The one where Viarmo reads Olaf's Verse to allow you entry to the Bard's College), but he will not read the verse because the jarl is not in the castle, and she hasn't been there in over two weeks. I started a side quest where you have to wear Taarie's fine clothes in front of her for the clothing store in Solitude, and that gave me a marker pointing directly to Elisif. For whatever reason though, the marker points a bit west of Bleakwind Basin, and it hasn't moved from there in days. If I actually travel there to look for her, she is not there. When I go to Bleakwind Basin, the marker on my compass points back to the castle in Solitude, but if I open the map, the marker is back near Bleakwind Basin. Does anyone know why this has happened? I have finished the questline of the war, and sided with the Stormcloaks, so things with the Jarls are kind of messy.
Thieve's Guild guildmaster chest glitch Edit
I am not sure if this is a glitch or not, but I would hope this is not the way this is supposed to go. I am the guild master of the Thieve's Guild, and I had a lot of important stuff stored in the guildmaster's chest. Well for some reason (I honestly don't know why it happened), I got kicked out of the guild and had to earn my way back in. When I made it back in, I had to unlock the chest again, and all that was in there was a diamond and around 800 coins. I had all kinds of important things in there (many dragon priest masks, my full nightinggale armor, Wabbajack among other things). Well now they are all gone. Surely Bethesda didn't intend for you to lose all of your stuff that was in the guildmaster's chest if you get kicked out of the guild?
Update: It appears this is a pretty gamebreaking glitch. I can't store anything in the chest anymore without losing it. Every time I leave the Thieves' Guild now, everything I had stored in the chest disappears, and the chest becomes locked again with the gold and gemstone inside. I am not sure if this will happen to everyone, but be weary if you have valuable things stored in the Guildmaster's Chest, and you get kicked out of the Thieves' Guild.
Yeah, when you get kicked out of the thieves guild the Guildmaster's Chest isn't considered owned so either npc's take what's inside, or when the chests refresh the items will just dissapear. Misterfish (talk) 07:32, January 7, 2012 (UTC)
Same thing has happened to me. I lost many daedric artifacts and my nightingale and thieves guild master armor, however I wasn't kicked out of the guild. My stuff just disappeared.
Can't get to Esbern Edit
I can't get to Esbern. I know where he is, but last time I went to Brynjolf in The Ragged Flagon in Riften and had him tell me where Esbern was. This time I started the Theives guild in the beginning of the game instead of doing any other quests. And now when I go up to Esbern's door, he yells at me to leave. Is there anything I can do? Or do I have to start another file? I'm playing on the Xbox 360.
The Follower Bug Edit
OK, so one day i got onto skyrim and i asked someone to be my follower, and they told me i already had someone following me, but i didn't, the only follower i had was lydia, and she sais the same thing. So can i fix this or what?Edit
Answer: I believe you said "wait here" to your last follower and he/she is waiting for you to leave. You should find him/her.
Another answer: You probably had another follower at some point. (as part of a main quest) Lydia may be at a home that you purchased.
Feeding as a Vamp/ Bug Edit
On the PC Skyrim I'm having issues with the final stage of vampirism and feeding like I'm supposed to... I still get aggroed like a vampire, I still have people running me down, and out of towns... But when I successfully break into someone's house to go feed once they're sleeping. I ONLY get a pickpocket option. I hit the action button and it goes straight to their inventory, rather than saying, "HEY. YOU CAN BITE THIS PERSON." I've tried reloading, running in and out of houses, making sure the NPCs aren't important, and nothing's really working.
I've no issue hoofing it to the places I need to go, it'd just be nice if I could eventually turn in quests.

PC Nightengale Glitch? Edit
Is anyone else having issues taking the Oath to Nocturnal in Nightengale Hall? We get all set up and when Karliah's about to open the gate, she walks the opposite direction, repeating her banter with Brynjolf.
PC: Missing Tribute Chest in the Thieves Guild? Edit
I've been looking for others with the same problem, but i haven't heard about this issue from anyone else
I've become Master of the Thieves Guild, and as a result of that i've been given the Tribute Chest Key
But for some strange reason, there is no Tribute Chest located in front of the Guild Masters Desk.
Does anyone have the same problem, and is there a solution for this problem?
Ps3 Alduins wall before i started the quest i found the sky haven temple and did all the puzzles after some time i started the quest and the two people that come with you are going into the door that you unlocked by doing a sacrafice but when
18.104.22.168 03:08, January 8, 2012 (UTC) I just experienced the lost active effects glitch (on PC) and found that it also removed all of my racial (Argonian) attributes. Going back in my saves, it looked like using the wooden mask caused the problem repeatably. It also unequipped my weapons and armor. Has this happened to anyone else on the mask? Maybe there is a script bug on it?
Thieves Guild (Xbox 360)- At the start of the quest The Pursuit, for the Thieves Guild, Karliah won't leave the Frozen Hearth Cellar in Winterhold, but my quest log tells me to meet her in the Ragged Flaggon. When I travel to the Ragged Flaggon, she is not there and members of the Thieves Guild will not enter conversation with me. They only give the small sentences, not real dialogue. I can't progress through the Thieves Guild storyline because she won't leave Winterhold. Karliah also won't enter dialogue. I've tried fast traveling around, resetting my game, and attacking her. Now it's interfering with my Dark Brotherhood storyline, because I can't get the jewel appraised by Delvin (a member of the Thieves Guild). I'm a level 38 and have put hours and hours into this game, so naturally, this bug/glitch/thing makes me wants to punch holes through my tv and snap Skyrim in half.
Cant activate anythingEdit
I went into Dean Man's Respite and found the 3 levers (one on each wall and one surrounded by candles). So I flipped the two on the walls and could not flip the one in the middle so I thought nothing of it and carried on. I noticed later on trying to get Mehune's Razor that I could not push the button to get into the storeroom where the blade is or flip the lever to get into the hilt room. Now I cannot activate any switches or chains or anything else that says activate and I cannot turn into beast form, etheral form shout, or activate night eye. I have tried deleting the game data and letting it install it all over again but I still run into this problem.
Collage of winterhold quest xbox glitch Edit
i completed the "good intentions" quest in skyrim and it wont give me the next quest which is called "revealing the unseen" and i have loaded previous saves like 10 times
new sort of bug-thing Edit
My friend can't get past the options screen (you know, options, play, etc.). He presses Play and nothing happens. I've run out ideas and we'd both be really grateful if anyone can help. Pretty please? Auntarie (talk) 19:37, January 13, 2012 (UTC)
Yet another College of Winterhold Glitch Edit
There is yet another college of winterhold glitch, it told me to go find the staff of magnus but5 then did not give me a quest and i do not know were to go. Also, i asked my friend were it is located and he said it was in Labrynthian and they were supposed to give me some kind of key thing to unlock the door there but i didn't get it. So now i can't do that or put the Dragon priest Masks together, thanks Bethesda. Also in some game experiences, I couldn't even continue the First Lesson because Tolfdir won't cast his spell at me.
I dont have another save before the quest thing. Ive gotten pretty far. It's right after the quest where the guy from the psijic order comes to talk to you. You cant go any further. HELP.
Some oddities during the reconquest of Skyrim, Imperial side, Skyrim 22.214.171.124 for PC.
- Rikke didn't appear where I was supposed to meet her (in the camps). Another legate was there in her place but wouldn't advance the quest. The only way I found to fix this was by using the console command player.moveto 198bb, which caused her to appear where she should be, replacing the other legate.
- After the death of Ulrick and before the General's speech, I went for a stroll through the Palace of Kings. Upstairs in the second room to the right, I found a crowd of miscellaneous characters standing around with nothing much to say. They weren't under guard or anything. Some I had met and some I had not. Saving and rebooting didn't make them go away. They included:
- Jarl Thongvar
- Jarl Skald
- Jarl Laila
- Cpt Lonely-Gale

Map Marker Bug [Urgent] Edit
So i was going to a mission and i found a passage which i believe it would make my was shoter. I pass it through. But after that i was unable to see my "miscellaneous" quest's map markers. I tried major quests, they have their map markers but as i said miscellaneous quest's map markers did not shown. For example Shirine of Azura. I can see it on map as black -i didnt go there before- , but there isnt map marker on it.
What should i do please help
Glitch Whiterun jailEdit
I had a realy big bounty on Whiterun that i could not pay, when the guard aked me to go to jail or if i rather die I said go to jail and in the load screen it got freezed, i waited forever but it's still in load screen.
does someone have a solution, the same problem? please answer.
A minor bugEdit
Some times doors are stuck half open and you need to press open twice(very minor bug)
This is generally because someone has gone through the door while you were in that area e.g. being in whiterun and a gaurd going into dragonsreach. When you activate the door the first time it closes the door. Other fixes include killing everyone in every city to avoid this happening. To kill the un-killable NPCs, get them to chase you to Ustengrav and let them walk onto the fire traps forcing them to forever be stuck there. This does take some time but is well worth it to avoid that frustrating door glitch.
There are numerous quests that I've found in game which can be duplicated and cannot be completed a second time. The worst offenders so far are The Legend of the Red Eagle (The red eagle's fury sword on the Briar Heart seem to be self-duplicating. At the moment his dead body now has two of them. One from before I killed him and one which spawned afterward.), clearing a mine of foresworn and Visit Azura's Shrine. I've also noticed that the game sometimes doesn't register that you've collected a bounty, so that remains in your miscellaneous quests but because you've already collected the bounty and can't collect it twice, you can't remove it.

Cosmetic Bug: Headless Dragonborn! Works as of 1/21/12 Edit
Cosmetic Bug/Headless Dragonborn (Works with current patch as of 1/21/12)
Pretty simple bug I found while working on some costumes. All you have to do is have the Mythic Dawn Robes, stolen from the cases of the Museum in Dawnstar, and the Krosis mask obtained from the unique Dragon Priest of the same name (Currently I don't remember where from, but that's what this Wikia is for, right?)
Anyways, you equip the Mythic Dawn Robes, so any headwear is removed due to it being automatically hooded. Then equip Krosis. You should be pretty much naked. Then re-equip Mythic Dawn Robes. Viola! You're now headless!
Note: I tried it several times, and it worked every time. It's confirmed personally. Not sure if it works with items that share similar traits, but I just happened upon it with this specific combination.
ONMUND FOLLOWER ONLY BLOCKS AND NO LONGER FIGHTS!!!??? Edit
Everything was going great untill we came across some bad guys and all he did was BLOCK!? I changed his weapons, i told him to do stuff, i told him to leave and hired him back nothing works!? I dont want to kill him cuz im married to the guy! -_-he's a great follower but he just wont do :( someone please help me out here... The game's called skyrim. P.s i have this problem on XBOX 360.... flag Why does onmund keep on blocking instead of fighting? skyrim xbox-360
Same problem here friend, if you google for hours you can find others with this same problem like I just did. I can't find a fix, I guess I'll have to look into other mage followers. Almost married him, too. This game is a SHAME on all the studios involved, the bugs are ENDLESS and seem to invent themselves creatively in unreproducable ways. This game has file corruption issues and even hemmorages values into other parts of the game. You can very easily break quests by doing the wrong thing first, making you afraid to take risks or explore without only a single quest - SO SO BAD. Great concept, artwork and gameplay but terrible execution, bugs and reliability.
Shalidor eats followers Edit
PC version 188.8.131.52 - It's well known that Shalidor's Maze eats followers. I spent an hour finding a solution so I could get Lydia back without repeating two hours of play. She is markedly reluctant to approach the exit and will remain inside the maze while I use multiple doors and fast travel. Solution I found was using console "moveto player". This is a very annoying bug that is well documented all over the Net and should have been fixed long ago!

Liberate Falkreath: Fort Neugrad Imperials Never Spawning/Prisoners Not ImprisonedEdit
360 version 1.3 : When attempting to rescue the prisoners at Fort Neugrad, the Imperials may not spawn either outside or inside the fort. In addition, whether sneaking in or attacking the front, the cages the prisoners are supposed to be locked inside never spawn, and instead the prisoners attack the bandits that are in the fort. After the bandits are dead, the prisoners stand inside their cells and say "The Guard has the key!" even though no guard spawned, no keys were found on the bandits, and no cage doors are available to pick. There is no way to get the prisoners to follow you.
If you kill the prisoners, the quest updates saying you need to kill the Imperials that never spawned. The Questline breaks from there, and it is impossible to complete the Stormcloak questline.
Only fix I know of is to clear the fort of bandits immediately BEFORE starting the Liberate Falkreath quest, then immediately starting the quest.

Bard's college quest items stuck in inventory Edit
So i have completed all three quests for the Bard's College, The three quests were to retreive; Finn's Lute, Pantea's Flute, and Rjorn's Drum. I got all three at once and turned in all three quests one after another, got all the exp for turning in the quests but all three items remain. Any idea how i can fix this problem? Is there an update in the future that will fix this problem?
So far to try and fix it myself i was restarting the quests, restarting the console, and trying to sell/trade/pickpocket random people and try to give it to them. But nothing has worked...

Dead Road Glitch Edit
Dead Road's Glitch (360)
This happened to me today, the road between Riverwood and Honeybrew and from Battle-Born farm to the guard outpost there is always a NPC to talk to or fight. After my character found the noble and his wife with there bodyguard I had them fight me so I could rob them, among that a thief ran buy and gave me a shield he stole then the hunter showed up looking for him. Once this was over the roads slowly became barren and there were no NPC's besides Whiterun guards. Soon there was no wildlife, and now no bandits or dragons, wolves or anything. Its all just a dead road.
Thieves Guild Gissur Bug? Edit
I tried to pickpocket Gissur's Note from Gissur while he was inside Ragged Flagon. I failed, and suddenly all member from the Thieves Guild attacked him. Im not sure, but maybe it was because he started attacking me.
Message to Whiterun
patch 1.4 (update 3)
Civil war quest bug: I got Ulfric's war axe, and done the MQ completely . Balgruuf has no dialog options for giving him the axe. Using the console progresses the quest to next stages, but even then Ulfric does not give me the next quest - Battle for Whiterun.
ESC malfunction Edit
Version 18.104.22.168 and earlier for PC: ESC button no longer brings up general menu; instead it brings up only the Pick a Perk menu, but I have no perk point to spend. This is very disruptive because I have to exit game using Windows Task Manager and can't easily make any backup saves. Nor, of course, can I bring up the key assignment menu to fix things. No help from Bethesda so far on this one. 22.214.171.124 00:16, February 2, 2012 (UTC)
Answer found in Skyrim game manual: you can get to the System menu via the Journal hotkey (J) and from there the Controls menu is accessible, from which key assignments can be reset. 126.96.36.199 01:17, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
Remapping Controls Causes Issues Edit
(PS3) Remapping controls causes unexpected effects:
I remapped my controls so that my shout was the triangle button, my jump was L2, my sprint was R2, Crouch R3, Change Perspective L3. In the items menu I am no longer able to favorite items by pressing triangle, pressing triangle now, instead of R2 in menu, when highlighting an enchanted weapon will access the option to refill enchantment. Also, it should be noted, I AM able to favorite magic with this set up. I sometimes shout when L3 is pressed and moving foreward.
- Restoring Defalts fixes the favorite issue*
I also, at one point, had my controls set up to have L3 my sprint button. This caused many other issues. This set up, for some reason acted like a hot key of sorts. When holding down L3 and pressing forward, it would cause my character to sheath or unsheath my weapon. Pressing back while holding L3 will bring up the menu to open magic, items, skills, map.
There seems to be an issue with pressing any direction on the left analog stick while holding down L3. I have not tested this with defalt controls.
Anriel's Endeavor: Door to the Hall of Elements from the main courtyard of the College of Winterhold becomes stuck after retreiving Keening? Edit
(PC) As stated. During the quest Arniel's Endeavor, after retreiving Keening from the courier and returning to the College of Winterhold, somehow the main door to the Hall of Elements from the main courtyard is stuck in the ajar position, so entry through it is now impossible (i.e. if you approach the door, the prompt to enter it no longer appears). Tried reloading the game to before venturing to Convangr Cave (where Keening was in my case); the door was fine after reloading that point, but after retreiving Keening and returning to the college ever time, the door ends up stuck. The only way in to the Hall of Elements (and adjoining areas like the Arcaneum and the Arch-Mage's Quarters) would be either via the Hall of Countenance or the Hall of Attainment, heading up to the 3rd floor and traversing the balcony to the doors of the Arcaneum, then going down to the Hall of Elements (interestingly, I can exit from the Hall of Elements to the main courtyard via that same main door, but I can't go back in). Any ideas?
Update: Never mind. It seems to have fixed itself after a few in-game days.
Jarl of Whiterun Missing??? Edit
(PS3) Latest Patch.
On the quest 'The Fallen' - I cannot prepare the trap for Odahviing, because the Jarl of Whiterun is not anywhere around whiterun. I literally cant find him anywhere.
On the previous mission, after the peace conference on The Throat of The World, I 'Unrelenting Forced' the Jarl off the top of the mountain. I believe this has caused the Jarl to glitch, and not spawn in Whiterun. He isn't on the mountainside either.
Is there anyway I can reset the Jarl?
Whiterun Axe Glitch? Edit
I'm part of the Stormcloaks and Ulfric gave me the axe to give to Balgruuf.I gave the axe to him and he kept it telling me"He'll keep it for now." And on my quests it says I need to assist Whiterun with a dragon attack. Isn't he suppose to give it back? And how do I assist Whiterun if he is suppose to keep it?

Imperial Legate Bug Edit
Ok, so I've completed the Civil War questline for the Stormcloaks, and now whenever I come across an Imperial camp, the Legate of the camp refuses to die! All of the other soldiers die, but the Legate drops to his knees for a few seconds and stands back up, full health, when he should be dead. Any thoughts or related bugs?
220.127.116.11 16:42, February 8, 2012 (UTC)it isn't a bug. you can't kill the heads of the camps unless you cheat.
Quest Overlap Glitch Edit
I have a problem with the quest where you need to talk to Ulfric and General Tulleus. I have not completed the jagged crown quest either, but I started it. I need to talk to Ulfric, but he tells me to go away and get the crown. On the jagged crown quest it tells me to talk to this other guy, whose name I don't remember. When I talk to this guy, he acts as if I've already talked to Ulfric, which I haven't. I found the dungeon where the crown is, but it won't let me enter because I haven't talked to the other guy. The way is blocked by rubble.Is there any way to fix this, or do i just have to go back two days worth of saves before I get the peace traty quest?
Liberated the Reach without Liberating it. Liberated thru trade and can't continue?? Edit
18.104.22.168 16:45, February 8, 2012 (UTC)Ok, so I was gonna liberate the Reach. However, before I did this, I got sidetracked and did the very main quests and finished them and ended up making the Emperials give the Reach to Stormcloaks, and Stormcloaks gave up Riften to the Emperials. The quest object "Liberate the Reach" is complete, but nothing else is there. I still have the quest and I don't have the next step available to me...I imagine having the factions switch capitols liberated the Reach FOR me, but what now!? Anyone have a code in order to move me along in the questline?
Also, someone told me it had something to do with Faendol Riverwood, but it has nothing to do with him and he is alive.
if you paid attention in the quest a truce is call until alduin is killed.
~~don't you think i already thought of that. Alduin is dead. I have completed all other quests except misc ones that's the only one left.
Alftand Ruined Tower upper door glitch Edit
22.214.171.124 PC - The upper door of the Alftand Ruined Tower is glitched. It took me several tries to get Lydia in. She's reluctant to approach and usually disappears when I go in. We went out and in the lower door with no problem. When I took her back out the upper door, she turned around and re-entered without me. A minute or two later, she rejoined me a few hundred yards away. I believe she may not be able to recognize the upper door as a legitimate entrance, so she was trying to get into the lower door, and when I exited the upper door she probably used the lower door to exit. 126.96.36.199 21:16, February 8, 2012 (UTC)

Patch 1.4 Causes Riften NPCs to Stand Outside by the Stable Edit
Shortly after the 1.4 patch I went to Riften to complete some quests. When I arrived (by foot), everyone but Madesi and the blacksmith are standing outside the city by the stable. I tried fast traveling away and back, but they're still there. I left and waited 4 days as suggested by someone on the support forum, but when I came back and they're still there. I punched one and they all ran off, but when things settled down, they casually walked back to the stable. The vendors refuse to deal with me, they tell me to wait until they are at their shop. I got the refID of one, went to the market area and moved them with the console, but they turn around and walk back outside. I tried using the console commands kill, disable, moveto player, enable, resurrect, but again they just go back outside to the stable. I now have several quests I can't complete or advance because the person I need to speak with is at the stable and refuses to talk to me. --jimnms (talk) 07:09, February 12, 2012 (UTC)
Recover Skooma Source Info bugged Edit

I cannot find My wifeEdit
I play on the XBOX. And when I got married to Ysolda she just dissapeared! HELP!!!!!
She tends to be out during the day from what I have heard, this is a possible easter egg about her being a skooma dealer (that informations from reddit a while ago so idk if its true or not). So is she never around or just not when your at the house?Mask2697 (talk) 18:32, April 27, 2012 (UTC) (btw to whoever wrote this question you should use the four tildes so I know who you are)
Bug When going through doors Edit
I've been experiencing a bug where I'll go through a door and appear 10ft in front of the opposite side of the door instead of directly in front of it. This usually doesn't cause problems but if it happens while entering the Arcanium in the College of Winterhold it causes the screen to go green before launching you up to the above floor.
I haven't seen anyone report this and next time it happens I'll get it recorded for reference.
Guys, could you help me. i got to my house. and there was this stormcloak saying i know you. he left then when i answered and the Stormcloak Soldier text froze to the screen and after that i froze too and i quit and loaded again and i now i cant talk to anyone or search anything! PLZ HELP!
Four Skull LookoutEdit
The bandits do not respawn though the chest does. This makes it impossible to finish the miscellaneous quest from the steward of Markarth. It's also impossible to buy the house if you didn't buy it earlier even though you have finished all the required quests (due to the lack of dialogue).

If i continue the quest, I cant progress no matter what.. Plz someone. I have PC version, and no quest mod is installed.
I stumbled upon an easy way to sift stolen/non-stolen goods in your inventory. If you have say 10 pilfered steel arrows and 10 not stolen, the inventory sees them as 20 stolen. Throw the supposed 20 stolen arrows at the ground, voila two piles: 10 stolen arrows in one pile amd 10 perfectly sellable (non fence) arrrows. Also I believe stolen items are dropped first irrespective of what order they were added to your inventory. X360 Marcoose777 (talk) 04:19, February 26, 2012 (UTC)

Please conscider this as an addition to either the bugs, glitches, or exploits/ cheats section of the Wiki. My son discovered this while playing on his Skyrim save on my PS3. I am very proud of him.
Found a bug/ glitch/ exploit that I would like to add.... My son was playing and discovered that if you are swimming as a werewolf and change back while still in the water, your character will be standing on the ground under the water and will not be swimming, but will actually be able to run on the ocean/ river bottom. You still need to have a way to breath while under water ( ring of water breathing, being an Argonian, etc) but will be able to travel underwater quickly. Then when you are ready to reset it to normal (swimming), just go onto land and reenter the water and you will be swimming again. This bug/ glitch/ exploit also works if you are transforming into a werewolf. You still cannot use weapons while underwater, but will be able to transverse water areas easier and faster.
Can someone please tell me when they are going to fix the Abandoned House bug? I think it's a lot more common than anyone realizes and getting trapped in that house not only potentially ruins your save file, it prevents the player from ever getting the daedric artifact acheivement. Which means you can never 100 percent the game. Thanks to this glitch and the Silver hand glitch from the Companions I have to start over.
We need to get Bethesda to stop releasing new games and start fixing their old ones.

Marriage Ceremony Start Time Glitch Edit
When I set the time for my wedding ceremony I waited for 24 hours and Maramal still would not start the ceremony nor did any guests arrive. However I waited another day and then it started. This may have happened because game time was 7:00 PM (After Dusk) when I talked to Maramal to arrange the wedding.126.96.36.199 04:15, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
Battle for Solitude Glitch Edit
When entering Castle Dour neither Ulfric or Galmor spawn leaving me forced shethed weapon and no way out. Reloading does not fix the issue. I can either lose ten hours of gametime and 2 levels, or wait for them to patch it up. I play on the PS3 any ideas on how to fix this issue in the mean time? JayKattz 23:06, August 7, 2012 (UTC)
Duplicate most one handed weapons Edit
Go to any upgraded house. Equip a one handed weapon to your right hand and draw the weapon. Now eauip a bow. Activate a weapon rack twice. The weapon should be on the rack and the bow whould be on the ground. Take the weapon first and then the bow. Exit the house. Equip the one handed weapon to your right hand and kill a random citizen. Drop the weapon and let the guards kill you. When you respawn equip the weapon and enter the house. The weapon should have a duplicate on the floor. You're welcome. Rookie of Pl. 7/17/12
