Reader Comments

  1. I have 23 stones of Berenziah and can’t find the last one. I went down the list of stone locations twice and no luck. I read there are two places that the stone sometimes doesn’t show up on. Any chance of fixing this?

  2. Two things.
    1)Can I get the update without internet? (ie. Burn a dvd froma PC and update the xbox) or is it 100% xboxlive only sorta deal?
    2)Would this patch fix the forever mourning glitch as well? (I hate that one!)
    Thanks. Skyrim rules life. I’m 130 hours in and not finished yet.

  3. Exciting news? Hope it’ll be something about DirectX10 that came bundled with the game.

    Also crossing my fingers for more of the stuff we saw in the gamejam video!

  4. How is fixing the weapon racks in Proudspire, for example, a higher priority than repairing the broken “Trinity Restored” quest (where Karliah walks away before I get there) or the broken “Civil War” quest (where entering Understone Keep just crashes my xbox)? Having 2 major quest lines broken is a pretty big bummer. Come on guys, please fix these big bugs.

  5. I’ve had a problem with the very last Stone of Barenziah that I need not showing up. I’ve double checked every location and I’m pretty sure its the one from Fellglow Keep that I’m missing. Really hope this gets addressed soon.

    • I am having the same problem with that quest. Prob wouldn’t be a big deal if all those stones wasn’t taking up weight. Any one having problems when you finish a quest you keep some the items (like the flute for the bard) and you can’t drop it because it says it’s part of a quest? That has happen to me now 5 times.

    • I second that, but I’m not sure which one is not ‘registering’. I’ve gone to ALL the locations…twice…some three times. It still shows 23 and it’s confusing. I don’t have any showing a count of 2 or anything…sooo…?…

    • I third that,

      I have asked about this issue before and had no reply, I have 23/24 stones and am missing the Fellglow Keep stone. Been to all locations twice to double check and I have collected them all.

      I would really like a fix for this as I was looking forward to completing this long tiresome questline. Hopefully this will be addressed now more players are having the same issue.

      Please look at this in the next patch Bethesda!

  6. “We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their continued support of the game. This week Todd informed me that the average Skyrim play time (across all three platforms) is 85 hours, and 30% of you have played more than 100 hours of the game. These are truly astounding numbers!”

    Pfft I have put nearly 400 hours in this game and I’m not going to stop anytime soon

    • Really only an average of 85 hrs. across all platforms? That cant b right. On my first character play through I’m going on 240 hrs. That’s on my 360 by the way. Ne way I’m still having some glitches eg. Lagging when sprinting on horseback, Ria from the companions is still walking around headless, and I still cant finish the quest Animal Extermination because the sabercat I’m supposed to remove is already dead with the quest marker floating above it. Also I wouldn’t mind being able to kick some ass from horseback. Shadowmare is a badass who cant b contained lol. I’ve never seen a horse kick an ancient dragon in the balls and live to take me back to the house unharmed. It would also b nice to c the ease burden spell brought back from oblivion. Also want to see an expansion like the shivering isles. Maybe even some new armor new weapons new main protagonists new creatures new spells and a way to craft your own scrolls and staffs new locations and my own castle or fort or both would b awesome. Any way I cant wait to hear what’s coming next.

  7. This would be more appropriate if included in DLC, but how about more quests and plotlines involving racism, and the ability to change conditions? It feels like it’s never really explored as fully as it should be.

    For example, why are Khajiit and Argonian protagonists welcome in cities? Why can’t a Stormcloak character lobby for Ulfric to enact anti-persecution laws in Windhelm? Surely the Dragonborn would be able to clean up the Gray Quarter? When the Imperial questline is finished, the new Jarl talks of renovating the slums, but nothing ever actually happens!

    A questline to stop poverty and racism in Windhelm is such an obvious opportunity, I was frustrated when I discovered I couldn’t do anything. I felt teased! Bethesda, if the moon is full, the rain falls, the seas run red, and it’s Todd Howard’s birthday, include this in the next patch. If no miracles occur, please consider putting it in DLC or a future update.

    (I know this is a tad off-topic, but I can’t seem to locate a suggestion box. Or wishing well. Or Ark of the Covenant.)

  8. Playing on ps3 after the update….Whenever I go above ankle depth in water, my game freezes!!!! Whether it’s cannon balling into it from the top of the college of winterhold, or whether I’m skimmying into a small pool pretending to be a mudcrab. It just dies!!!!

  9. I’ve a bug with the 1.5 patch for the XBOX 360.

    I’m collecting the dragon priest masks and at the moment, I’m at Shearpoint.
    I killed the dragon and first, he didn’t give me a soul and second the words on the wall aren’t glowing but I can hear the sound when approaching the wall and I can’t learn the words.
    And the dragon priest Kosis doesn’t come out of his coffin.

    I did an other dragon priest quest before, there I could learn the words on the wall and the priest came out.

    Hopefully you can help me or fix this “bug”.

  10. Howabout you fix the problems on pc aswell hmm? I still have spastic shadows everywhere since 1.5, please just fix it i havent been able to play skyrim regularly since.

  11. PS3:
    Well, I did stop playing since there’s no way for me to getting forward with the main quest. Esbern’s still babbling “Can’t wait to see what’s inside” inside Karthspire. As many others I went on to the wall by exploring ahead. The game’s stuck there. Doing Dark Brotherhood Forever isn’t that funny anymore.

    Care to fix that before adding another NPC to the eligible marriage list?

  12. I still have a small bug, in where i spoke to the Innkeeper in Markarth, who told me to speak to Degaine the Beggar.. and he means to do the quest for Degaine. but I have already done it, so now i’m stuck with a dull misc objective.

    And on my abandoned first save, i couldn’t go on because of the Gauldur Amulet.. and that had alot more bugs though.

    And what features from the Game Jam have been implemented?

    Even better, I would like people to be resurrected.. because breaking out of Cidhhna Mine killed civilians in Markath, the Forsworn used them as Thralls…;
    And “essential” people dieing is really bullpoop.

    Might want to make a tome which would bring a NPC completely back to life. as in.. make it restart it’s script and all, like he hasn’t died at all.

    And make Quest Items removable from inventory..
    I (was and will be) Stuck with the Attunement Sphere, and the bloody Elder Scroll which weights 20.

    Can’t think of more bugs/annoyance atm.

    • Oh yeah right.. in the quest where you have to steal
      Frost, Maven Black-Briar’s horse. i backed out of the Bee and Barb before completely listening to Louis Letrush’s offer. and i got the Lineage papers from Maven (which are i believe not in my inventory), but the objectives don’t update.

    • Quest items have ‘weight’ as a value, but don’t ‘weigh’ anything. If you dropped every non-quest item in your inventory you would see that your encumbrance is 0, because quest items don’t weigh you down. Don’t worry about being “stuck” with quest items, it doesn’t do any harm.

    • The Attunement Sphere is actually required to access a large majority of all Dwemer ruins in the game, not having it on your person would cheat you out of large portions of gameplay. Think of it as a key instead.

  13. When will the bars college item bug be fixed? It drives me nuts that i still have to carry these heavy items after I’ve completed the quest…

  14. I installed new update 1.5 and I am having troubles with system locking up when entering water. I deleted game data and reinstalled 1.5 update. Still having issues with system locking up. Any other suggestions???

  15. At the bards college, when donig the quests for Finn’s Lute, Rjorn’s Drum, and Pantea’s Flute. The quests will complete but the all 3 items will not remove from the inventory. Thats alot of un-needed weight to be carring around. please fix this

  16. NICE. love the game sooooo much cant w8 for dlc got 4k Microsoft points saved up for it. the kill cams were great and now are even better. just killed a dark elf with archery and i got the arrow through her eye hole in the ebony helm and i saw all this through the kill cam was epic! under water is much better more realistic good job. and thanks for everything!

    but there are a few things bugging me nothing game breaking but then again i am very reasonable. but i have a decent amount of enemies not re-spawning from giants, dragons, daedra etc. its not making me angry but i enjoy killing these things and when 4-6 giant camps and 3-4 dragon lairs and the daedra at mehrunes shrine don’t spawn its a bit annoying especially when a few of these are quest related one specifically stopping me from getting rid of vilkas now this may not sound bad cause he is invincible but i hate followers with a passion.the only thing i like doing is making followers look strong/good/experienced.

    which leads me to another thing i wish was a bit different but not something extremely important. the fact that when i give followers armor it does not stay equipped unless they are following me at the time. along with my spouse trading them to give them better armor/clothes could make the game a little more interesting seeing every one wearing steel and worse gets very boring. and can u put in robes like apprentice and novice that are not enchanted i don’t know if any are in but i have not found them.

    now to the “vigilant of stendarr” i love em i knew exactly what they were when i saw them and was excited to try and join them until i realized that i could not it was upsetting but i got over it. but it would be nice if in a dlc or something i could actually join em with some quests. not something i am really worried about it’s just a “would be nice”.

    are you guys going to make it so we can wear 2 rings? just curious herd a few things about it but i don’t know.

    to be able to disenchant something like nightingale hood and if i already know the enchantment then it does not get destroyed but just losses its enchantment no exp or anything. just so i can actually wear it with an enchantment i like. i am one of those people who hates having to wear something really ugly or that does not match to be good in combat or skills. i would rather wear something that looks good but sucks and above all something that is both good and good looking. right now i have daedric boots, ebony gloves, ebony mail, and nightingale hood with usually ebony bow or duel ebony maces or a random destruction spell. most of it is good ebony mail is sick looking but poison is a bit weak better then nothing tho. and night hood is just crap for its enchantment. speaking of enchanting again the effects of fire, frost, and shock are a bit lame like oblivion but that’s not the real problem its that u have the perfect effects but not for the right thing. fire, frost, shock cloaks make your weapons look like they are enchanted with what they should be except fire. shock and frost look perfect shock is lightning moving through the weapon and frost makes the weapon look like it was in below 50 for a couple of hours. and that’s perfect those should be the way they look and just come up with something for fire and ur set.

    2nd last thing this is a little annoying and kind of delays me from doing certain things second time around or makes me do them a second time around(new character). leveled items, i like the idea but hate how i don’t know when i am getting them sometimes so i get them and they suck i look in my guide book(yes i got guide book) and i see that they are leveled so i look em up and see there are better versions and i cringe it sucks. leveled items should level with your character.

    last thing quests from guards to improve or create weapons, armor, or potions. guards are always asking me to sharpen a weapon or enchant one or create them potions make quests so i can actually do these things or don’t make them say stuff like this just doesn’t make sense. would that not be sick seeing every guard in glass or daedric or i don’t know dragon with beast weapons and massive powered pots.

    i know that was a bit much but when i start it is hard to stop. basically i just enjoy giving my 2 cents. and if you gstaff listen or even read this thanks again.

  17. Been waiting for a fix where completing “Diplomatic Immunity” will not allow “A Cornered Rat” to start. I’ve already written 3 letters to you guys already, Bethesda. Please address this in your next patch. I put 84 hours into the game and I haven’t been able to finish the main quest!

  18. Souls, Black & White. Found it in a previous mission, couldn’t just hand it over to librarian in the college of Winterhold, went back to the chest I found it in, wasn’t another copy nor would the compass marker disappear, went back to the library and still can’t hand over the book, completing this misc. quest.

  19. An open question:
    How does one know whether Bethesda is aware of a glitch reported among these entries or if a fix is prioritized within the coming patches? How does one know if there are others reporting a specific glitch too? If you’re the only reporter, perhaps the glitch won’t get any priority..?

    Some of the defects are so serious that the game becomes unplayable. May it be a graphics issue or a simple campaign logics issue (like a completely broken main questline).

    Okay, that was more than one question/statement, but y’all know what I’m getting at..

    • We’re keeping an eye on the comments in the forums, here on the blog, and elsewhere, so we’re aware of the main issues have been reported.

      We’re fixing as many issues as we can, but we definitely hone in on ones that are reported more often.

      • You’re lying, you don’t actually read the forums, you only use it to post updates from the PR department. You know how broken your games are because well Bethesda made them. You only fix what you want fixed not what any fan or group of fans want fixed. Stop pretending you care about your fans because it’s plainly obvious you don’t.

        • Sorry for this guy, Bethesda. Not all of your fans are this inconsiderate. Plenty of us really do love and support the work you do.

          My main reason for posting here is just to put another vote in for the Take Up Arms quest bug, where Aela can’t be found to return her shield. When inside Whiterun, there is a pointer showing her location in the Giant’s camp to the west. When outside Whiterun, it says her location is inside Whiterun. Since the quest cannot be completed, the Companion’s quest line remains unplayable.

      • Thank you for 1.5 patch. After 450 hours of skyrim on xbox 360, Blood on the Ice finally popped (under Imperial rule of Windhelm!) However, Viola Giordano was killed before the quest started, and it does not appear that the 1.5 patch helps smooth this (despite the claim). No Dark Brotherhood involvement, have not purchased Hjerim, did not steal Calixto’s “Confession” Journal. Jorleif still keeps telling me to talk to Viola. Cannot prompt Wuunferth to initiate catch the killer dialogue even with amulet and journals 1/2 and leaflets. So I sold amulet to Calixto, and I’m not wanting to do something that will ruin my chances.

  20. So I’ve reported this blog before and have commented on several blog posts but I would really appreciate it if you fixed the Take Up Arms Companion’s quest. I know other people have had a problem with it, and for me there is no workaround or anything to do about it. I can’t find Aela to give her shield back anywhere, she is not at Jorrvaskr or Bleakwind Basin (where it shows shes supposed to be on the map), Ive been carrying around her shield for a long ass time! Please fix this soon :)

  21. What does “improved distance lod transition for snowy landscapes” do? I really dont know what it is to look for the difference in the game

  22. I deleted all my game data as you told me Reinstalled patches and installed the game itself Now nothing will load, it doesn’t freeze, just won’t load, I heard somewhere that if this happens, then I must delete all my game saves, Is this true?

  23. After 1.5, I am still noticing very odd things, especially after killing enemies with the bow. The force of the shot usually blows the enemies backwards, which is fine, but it often leaves suspended weapons in the air — and often, these are NOT retrievable items. Sometimes, the bodies themselves are suspended in the air, too.

  24. Does anyone know if this new version fixed the bug at the end of the Twilight Seplucher once I’m done with Nocturnal, Karliah just says “yes fellow nightingale” it’s driving me crazy!

    • I second this. I’ve waited through several patches now, hoping this glitch would be addressed. (and to the original poster, NO, it didn’t address it.)

  25. Wow really the average play time is 85 hours, and only 30% have played over 100 hours?! Man, I was feeling bad cause I’ve only played 116 hours, and that is with trying to balance school and other busy stuff. I see people who play 100 hours not too long after the game came out (I’ve had it since it came out) and even people who have played near 1000 hours. And wow, only 30%? That seems odd really, I guess there were those who only bought the game for its hype and got bored cause it wasn’t their kind of game.

  26. 5 current bugs for me on PS3:
    1. Degaine quest still shows as miscellaneous quest even though I finished it.
    2. 23 out of 24 stones (but I got all 24 as far as I can tell)
    3. Red Wave – keep getting (‘you’re not supposed to be in here’ / chest does not appear under water where it should be)
    4. Miscellaneous quest…retrieving ingredients (I have 21 out of 20 jazbay berries needed (weird) / completed quest … hasn’t cleared from queue)
    5. I killed the bandit leader in rift watchtower…game doesn’t acknowledge this has been completed. Quest arrow is pointing to dead body.

    Suggestions? Fixes? Anyone??
    FYI – I already tried reloading all my game data…didn’t fix anything.

    • Referring to #5 on my list, this is part of the Companions quest line (‘Trouble in Skyrim’…yeah, no kidding). I cannot complete the Companion quest because of this and haven’t even made it to the Silver Hand quest yet. Frustrating. It seems MANY are having issues with the Companions quest line. Perhaps this should be #1 on the bug fix list for the next patch release.

  27. Todd Howard WHY?? do you remember “Daggerfall” when the big city’s had more than 20 citizens? do you remember “Morrowind” when TES have more GAME than COSMETICS? WHY TODD HOWARD?
    Turn a good action-rpg in a damn shooter! TES now is Call of Warrior, Call of Wizard, The Arma of Scrolls, The Arma of Scrolls… poor story, poor animations, poor npcs, poor dungeons… WHY??? WHY!!!

  28. Todd Howard WHY?? do you remember “Daggerfall” when the big city’s had more than 20 citizens? do you remember “Morrowind” when TES have more GAME than COSMETICS? WHY TODD HOWARD?
    Turn a good action-rpg in a damn shooter! TES now is Call of Warrior, Call of Wizard, The Arma of Scrolls, The Arma of Scrolls… poor story, poor animations, poor npcs, poor dungeons… WHY??? WHY!!!

  29. I have been playing videogames, RPGs in particular, for over 20 years and have never enjoyed a game more than Skyrim. Thank you.

  30. Folgunther is still bronken for me. The passage to the right of the throne as you enter is blocked by a stone wall and pulling the levers on the sides of the thrones doesn’t do anything. I can’t progress with this bug….

    • I actually just read that there is a door beside each throne in Folgunther. Both doors are locked and pulling the levers doesn’t do anything. Playing on PS3. Plz Help =&

  31. they will not fix everything, because the product has problems far beyond quests. water effect as update? this is just a “finish the damn water” and put as update. this game have absurd flaws. i think only a completely idiot, stay acting as if nothing wrong was happening. those damn fanboys are part of the disease called “false advertising” because they continue cheering for nothing, 7 years later, the same mess.

  32. I have a problem with my shadows loads of other people i see have this on pc and basically there are shadows that should be there and they follow me around and i cant get rid of them please fix this !!!!

  33. I have a PS3 and uploaded the 1.05 update on Skyrim. Love the game, but now I have no sound. There are a few places I get some sound, but nothing from people, no footsteps, nothing indoors, the only place I’ve heard anything was the weather on the walkway to the college. Checked all the connections. Hope this gets fixed soon. The game is unplayable without the sounds.

  34. no offence to any1 out der but ive had a perfect game of skyrim and i dont kno why i dont get bugs or glitchs or crashes like you lot. And please can you put in a divorce patch i hate my wife. And can you make the elder scroll more useful like to take you to sovngarde wenever u want because all it does is blind me like a flashbang does on call of duty it really pisses me off because all it does is blind you for a few seconds wtf is its use anymore y do we still have it

  35. Ps3 severe lag issue

    Ive just downloaded the 1.5 patch and all of a sudden the game lags, stutters, crosshair moves really slowly, and pretty much unpredictable. I have about a 100 hrs of gameplay and the save file isnt even a megabyte yet, so now the game is pretty much unbearable to play. My question is if I go spend 300 dollars on a xbox, and another 60 on the game am I going to have the same problem, or am I going to be able to play it through to the end? Any help would be appreciated.

  36. I Recently Used XBox LIVE [April 10th, 2012] To Upgrade My XBox 360 And It Created More Problems For Me.

    Namely The Most Notible Was Whenever I Entered Solitude But Largely Whiterun That Soon As I Entered Inside The City The Guards Would Unsheath Their Weapons And Go Into Attack Mode.

    But NOT At Me But At A Horde Of Enemies Apparently Snuck In With Me And Everyone Would Go Into Battle INSIDE THE CITY WALLS.

    By The Time The Battle Was Over There Would Be About 7 Enemies Dead, A Few Guards And Many Of The Townsfolk Killed.

    The Female Smithy At Warmaiden Got Killed When She Joined The Battle And Well I Missed Selling To Her As I Didn’t Need To Enter The Building … She Largely Was Outside It So I Could Sell My Loot There.

    I Invested About 4 Months Of 4 Hours Per Day Into The Game And I Have NO Intention Of Restarting The Game.

    Another Problem, Also At Whiterun Is By The Stables Where One Particular NPC Would Duplicate, Now There Are 7 Exact Copies Of Him.

    I Killed Them All Off Hoping MAYBE That Would Solve The Problem With The Enemies Breaching The City Walls Problem … But It Didn’t Solve The Problem.

    Now Half Of Whiterun Is Empty And It Feels Creepy And Going To A Save Game Only Brings Up The Problem Of The Townsfolk Battling Incursional Enemies Soon As I Enter Any City, It Doesn’t Happen When I Enter A Town Witout Walls Or Homes, Etc…. ONLY Walled Cities Where There Is A Major Transition Between Outdoors To City.

    I Had Such Hopes For Skyrim, Now It’s Becoming Almost Unplayable And After All That Time I Spent Into It. :-{

  37. When you think about it, skyrim has been out for around 5 months now and Bethesda has been adding update after update to their huge game. These updates are important but are unnecessary. Continuing to make the game seem good by adding more updates is silly. They told us their would be dlc that is “bigger and better” but I have yet to see a trailer let alone news of future DLC. I know that the creation kit was a big deal but DLC is even bigger. I personally am bored of the game, bored of the creation kit, and bored of updates that barely do anything. I know you work your ass of making this game as good as it can be, but either speed it up or give us info on future titles or series. Thank you.

  38. Am very new to xbox live, only have silver connected to wireless. Can you tell me where or how to download the new 1.5 patch? Only have problem getting back to start Dampened Spirits and game freezing when free roaming in between active quests . Not sure where to look for this patch n how to use it…help us old school folks….lol

  39. Playing on ps3, can’t complete Hard Answers because Calcelmo’s translating guide has disappeared from my inventory, yet the box is checked in the quest objectives, stating that I have it. I really want to finish the Thieves Guild quest line, so please help. Thanks.

  40. Dragon Seekers mission is still unfinishable with PS3… I got Farkas with me and he just keep saying how he can teach me proper use of heavy armour. I can’t get rid of him, as the dragon wont appear, just an arrow hovering on air…

    Please fix this or even enable console to PS3 users, so we can fix what you can’t.

  41. ihr solltet euch mal mehr zeit lassen mit einem Patch!
    Damit es auch mal reibungsloser funktioniert.
    Und nicht ein patch erscheinen muss, damit teils fehlerhafte dinge aus dem patch zuvor behoben werden!

  42. Just updated my X360 version with the new patch today, I’ll play it diligently and alert you if I encounter any new issues.
    As it is I’ve suffered from having my character sunk into the earth after a combat animation, but that was before this update so hopefully that strange little game-breaker has been fixed.
    Always excited to see what you come up with in future, and while the new killcams are (at least for the mage) relatively basic, they DO add a pleasant sense of ‘weight’ to my battle-mage.

  43. Okay Bethesda, I have been giving you guys the benefit of the doubt since the game came out, but after patch 1.5 I have reached my limit. The stinking dragons are BROKEN!! I have killed two dragons now that did not burn and as such, I was unable to absorb the soul. Isn’t this totally missing the point of the whole game??
    Come on you guys, I find it very hard to believe that you can’t fix glaring issues such as broken quests, dragons not burning, items not leaving the quest menu after completion, etc. I mean, who cares about the kill cam?? It’s cool, but far from anything that actually improves the way the game plays.
    I have been a fan of yours since Oblivion and I played Fallout 3 for close to three years. So I’m quite familiar with the glitches that typically show up in your games, and I have always been happy to just overlook them because your games are so good, but Skyrim is just getting ridiculous. What is the problem? Is it just too large of a game to detect all of the issues? Do you not have enough folks to test every aspect of the game? If not, let me know – I’m available for testing…: )
    Seriously, I LOVE your games, but come on – let’s roll up our sleeves and actually fix what is broken in Skyrim instead of releasing a patch that leaves me wondering what, if anything, it is actually ‘patching’. So far, I have seen way more glitches with 1.5 than with the first two patches.
    I play on PS3 and up until 1.5, I ran into the occasional issue, but I could live with it. The dragons not giving up their souls is a show stopper though.

  44. Ps3- the companions quest line is still broken. A Quest Given by Aela the Huntress. There’s a Silver Hand Lieutnant in a random location. Possible locations include Treva’s Watch, Lost Knife Cave (Hideout), Valtheim Towers and Fort Fellhammer. Sometimes the Radiant A.I. will choose a dungeon the player has already cleared. In this case, it is possible the quest arrow leads to nothing and the quest cannot be completed without the use of PC console commands. Bugs not fixed yet for PS3 or Xbox360. IT EVEN SAYS THIS BUG ON ELDERSCROLLS WIKIA AND IT IS STILL NOT FIXED!!!!! i have played about 215 hours on this and I’m still not done with the game. PLEASE FIX THIS

  45. GSTAFF, when is the Nirnroot glow stacking and the textures no longer loading correctly post 1.4 going to be addressed in a patch?
