I've already done the quest Waking Nightmare, but when i try to talk to the jarl he doesnt offer the thane position. I've even helped three people already with the quests selling iron ore to Beitild, giving Karl a drink, and selling firewood to Aeri at Anga's Mill. What should I do?
Do the quests you explain complete "Assist the people of the Pale" quest line? If no than you will need to complete that quest line before the offer of Thane is given. It actually is what I am working on right now.
I may be having same issue, I have in my misc. quests: Collect bounty from Skald and it will not go away, The 2 things I can ask are the same as yours. Are you on PS3? I am and thinking this might be a glitch. which for me is no biggie as you do not need to be thane to own property. as I have already purchased Windstad Manor.
Well I have another issue... well not for me... but according to the game i have to complete the "Help 3 people in the pass" quest to be Thane,... welll somewhere and somehow I became Thane without that quest completed and I have no idea how I did it, I have forgotten .... I did not think I was thane, but have the property. But apparently i am the thane lol ...
Did you get the quest immediately after "Waking Nightmare"? And if so who, or did it just pop up?
Sorry "Assist the people of the pale" is the quest i was talking about.... I did waking nightmare so long ago... but "Assist the people of the pale" only c ame up I believe around the time when I purchased the property... really at this point I am absolutely no help to you, as I am extream;ly confused as to how I have become thane without the "assist the people of the pale " complete.... extreamly confused... O_o
I'm level 22, nightmare quest done, killed three giants as per bounty, helped everyone in the town, and still don't get any topic about becoming Thane. The glitch is bad with this one. I shall resort to the console command.
