- I had an utterly weird run-in with the two in the mountains near Saarthal. The two of them were killing a wolf and an apprentice mage, and when they finished for some reason they turned on me. I beat both of them to their knees several times with both fireballs and enchanted melee weapons, but they didn't seem killable. (My One-Handed skill went up a level when I was beating on them.) Finally, when they were both charging up the path toward me, I used Unrelenting Force full-strength on them. They went tumbling wildly back down the path and.... totally disappeared. No bodies, no trace at all. No bounty registered either. A rather surrealistic exchange. 18.104.22.168 02:03, June 23, 2012 (UTC)
Other meaning for "Vilkas" Edit
Btw Vilkas is also a Finnish word and it means "Lively" 22.214.171.124 18:54, December 5, 2011 (UTC)
Mount Anthor Quest bug? Edit
Has anyone encountered a bug in which the dragon at Mount Anthor is already dead, but Vilkas mentions that he wants to go off with you to kill the dragon? If you accept the quest, he replaces your companion, and he's stuck to you until you kill the now non-existant dragon. He can't be made to carry or do things like other companions, possibly because I'm married to him >.> +|| Legionnaire Scout -- talk ||+ 00:03, December 8, 2011 (UTC)
^ Yes, I have the same issue but at a different location (Lost Tongue Overlook). I gather this is a common bug when accepting the Dragon Seekers quest (and can also apply to Farkas). I'm not married in the game, so I'm confident that marriage doesn't have an effect on this glitch. 126.96.36.199 22:19, December 20, 2011 (UTC)
^ This is simple really, if you already killed that dragon before or if the dragon is dead, just wait for a few days. The 'glitch' is just that no new dragon was able to take the old dragon's spot at that area. Dragons will respawn eventually. I would only guess.
Can you Marry Vilkas?Edit
Is it possible to marry Vilkas with the Amulet Of Mara?
- Did you read the article? It clearly states that Vilkas is eligible for marriage once the Companions questline is complete. HaLo2FrEeEk (talk) 08:39, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
Skyrim PS3 Vilkas Glitch?Edit
In Skyrim on the PS3, I started the "Take Up Arms" quest. While fighting Vilkas, I used magic. Now all he says to me is "What do you think this is? We don't do battle with magic around here new blood. Now come at me!" But he never attacks me. After abandoning this quest, I discovered that merchant's menus never appear when I try to buy things and I can't get the Dragon Rising quest to progress after I kill the dragon... Please help! This is my only save and I think I'm going to lose it... help................................................188.8.131.52 18:48, December 23, 2011 (UTC)
I went and attacked everyone in Whiterun for fun and there was someone (Olfina Greymane, I think) who ran into a house and I chased her in. Vilkas was inside and he attacked and killed her...? Also, it wasn't his house. It was Heimskr's.
After I married Vilkas and told him we should move to his old place he dissapeared. Where did he go?
He is not essential. He died by my arrow while we were exploring a Dwemer ruin.
He is essential until after Glory of the Dead, after which point he is no longer. 184.108.40.206 00:32, May 12, 2012 (UTC)
So, anyone have the list of Vilkas' skill values at his level cap? Because we have graphs for followers' skills at their level caps on most pages, but oddly not here for Vilkas, unless it's hiding from me or something. We do have a lot of random screencaps of him in different armor sets like he's a pinup model, which leads me to believe he has become Skyrim's Fabio. But some relevant info would be super awesome. 220.127.116.11 05:05, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
^Here. This link will show you what you want in this case. This shows both Farkas's and Vilkas's skills and level cap so... here. []
Who makes a better follower? Farkas or Vilkas?
Possible PS3 GlitchEdit
I've started up my Skyrim on PS3 and restarted it several times to try and fix this. Vilkas seems to have disappeared, being no where in Whiterun at all. I rescued a hostage for him, but I can't complete his mission or start any more companions missions now. Am I the only one that's had this happen? Yeeeeeah! Now it's a party! (talk) 03:19, February 26, 2013 (UTC)
I have ps3, I found a bug where vilkas will chase my character, with his weapon readied, then he will engage in talk with my character and even after I stop talking to vilkas he will put his sword back pull it out and engage in talk again. anyone know how to fix this bug? its annoying
Vilkas was my follower while I was working on the Forsworn Conspiracy. After I talked to Thornar in the Treasury, he teleported to the Shrine of Talos and now he is stuck there (I escaped the mine).
Anyone else encounter this?
