I've been told to clear <radiant house> in <radiant city> of valuables. I need to complete this job without killing any of the location's residents or getting caught and spending time in jail.
Before the task could be completed, I decided to quit. I've therefore failed the job and forfeited any pay I might have received.
I've cleared <radiant house> in <radiant city> of valuables
During the course of this task, I was arrested and sent to the local jail. I've therefore failed the job and was forced to forfeit my share of the pay.
I've successfully complete the job and received my share of the pay.
- 100-500(depending on Thieves Guild Quest progression)
- Possible Thieves Guild Trophy (depending on number of jobs completed)
- If Heimskr's House is picked as the target and the Battle for Whiterun has already been completed, then this quest will be impossible to complete since the house is destroyed in the battle.
- One's compass may point out that the sweep targets are in the Ragged Flagon, you can solve this glitch/bug by simply exiting the flagon, although, the same thing might occur after acquiring another sweep job.
- These are side quests and do not play a role in successful completion of the main thieves guild quest line, but do count towards activating City Influence Quests.
- If you have a Sweep Job and a Bedlam Job activated at the same time in the same city, 2 of the sweep targets will finish the bedlam quest. Make sure you do the Bedlam Job before the Sweep Job to avoid not being able to steal the third item for the Sweep Job and a failed quest.
- Sometimes when trying to clear out Brylling's house in Solitude, the items you are supposed to steal do not disappear when you activate them, but they do count towards Bedlam jobs and Sweep jobs. However one of the items do not count for either job, making the quest uncompletable.
