-----------------------------------

A Shadow Over Hackdirt
Since rescuing the Argonian merchant's daughter in Hackdirt, for some, their mercantile skill is stuck and won't level up/increase no matter how much they barter.

PC & XBOX360 solution: Download the patch (PC patch link).

Ahdarji's Heirloom
Depending on how a person does the quest, it sounds like some people are legitimately able to get 2 rings, and the quest only looks to see if the player has 1 ring. Since it's a quest item, they're unable to just drop the extra ring.

PC Solution: Open the console with ~ and type player.removeitem 00035E95 1. This will remove one of the rings and the quest can now be completed.

PC & XBOX360 solution: Download the patch (PC patch link).

Ayleid doors don't open properly in Miscarcand

Corruption and Conscience

Falling through collision in Fort Woodhand

Frostcrag Spire
After downloading Frostcrag spire and completing the mini-quest I was spontaneously suspended from the Dark Brotherhood and the Mages guild.

Solutions: None yet. Submit any known solutions here.

Go Fish!
The compass marker directs you to the wrong place.

PC Solution: Just wait. Forget about it. Go do some other quests. Return days later and it'll work properly. At least that worked for me.

Infiltration
Players are able to kill Blackwood Company members which stops progress in the Fighters Guild.

PC & XBOX360 solution: Download the patch (PC patch link).

Light The Dragonfires
Player controls get locked if player accidentally hits Ocato during the final battle in the Imperial Palace.

PC & XBOX360 solution: Download the patch (PC patch link).

Mehrune's Razor
After downloading and completing the Mehrune's Razor quest I have moved from the beginning of the Thief's guild questline to 'Turning a blind eye'. The Gray Fox, however, will not engage in dialogue but simply states 'Don't you have something to do' without progressing the quest.

Solutions: None. Submit any known solutions here.

Mystery at Harlun's Watch
At an early part of the game I found & cleared the 'Swampy Cave' SE of Cheydinhal. Now, when trying to do the fighters guild quest "Mystery at Harlun's Watch" I get to where the bodies are... but they aren't people. They are dead skeletons & zombies with bonemeal & mortflesh on them. (I don't know what they're supposed to have). When at the green arrow, I don't get the pop-up to clear the cave of trolls.

PC & XBOX360 solution: Download the patch (PC patch link).

PC Solution: Open the console and type "setstage FGC10Swamp 40" - this will set the mission a step forward, to when you get the directive to clear the cave of trolls. You can proceed as normal.

Mages Guild: Cheydinhal Recommendation
Certain players have been finding that when they enter the well to discover the fate of Vidkun and retrieve the Ring of Burden that Vidkun is not there.

PC Solution: Open the console with ~ and type player.additem 2e5ac 1 to spawn the Ring of Burden in your inventory.

PC & XBOX360 solution: Download the patch (PC patch link).

Mages Guild: Leyawiin Recommendation
Bug 1: When playing the Mages Guild Quests I recover the Seer Stone Necklace for Dagail. When I try to Give it to her I have no Speech option to do so when talking to her.

Bug 2: Players are able to pass Kalthar in Fort Blueblood.

Solution for Bug 1: The Seer's stone response was offscreen, so when I scrolled down to the conversation thread, I was able to complete the quest. Problem solved.

Solution for Bug 2: Download the patch (PC patch link).

Masque of Clavicus Vile
After activating the shrine for the final time the game freezes seconds afterwards.

PC & XBOX360 solution: Download the patch (PC patch link).

Revenge Served Cold
Corrick will not recognize if the player has the jade amulet in their inventory if No Stone Unturned quest had been previously completed.

PC & XBOX360 solution: Download the patch (PC patch link).

Slow motion movement
The player character moves in slow motion, or heads in one direction without any buttons being pressed.

Solution: This is often the result of a joystick or controller plugged into the computer. Editting the Oblivion.ini may correct this issue. The Oblivion.ini file is located in the My Documents\My Games\Oblivion directory. In the [Controls] section, change the “bUse Joystick=1” setting to “bUse Joystick=0” or simply disconnect the peripheral. Make sure the settings are saved. Note, changes to the Oblivion.ini file will not be saved if Oblivion in running when the changes are made.

Spies
Martin directs you to talk to Jauffre about spies, but Jauffre has nothing to say to you on the topic.

Solution: Scroll down. It is lower down on the topics list, not immediately visible.

The Masters' Son
Players do not properly receive their reward upon completion of this quest.

PC & XBOX360 solution: Download the patch (PC patch link).

The Sirens' Deception
The player is locked inside Gweden farmhouse if they exit too quickly.

PC Solution: The patch fixes this. Or, open the console with ~, activate the door and type "unlock".

XBOX 360 Solution: download the v1.1 patch.

The Ultimate Heist Bug 1
At the end of the final cut-scene the player does not leave cinematic mode. Countess Umbranox is sitting strangely in her chair and the Gray Fox leaves without passing on his reward.

Solutions: None. Let me know if you have one.

The Ultimate Heist Bug 2
The Ancestor Moths do not bring you the Elder Scroll.

PC Solution:

Press the tilde (~) key to bring up the console and type in the following code.

player.additem 00022DB0

This will summon an Elder Scroll.

Till Death Do They Part
Some players do not receive the Vampire Ashes topic if the player picked up vampire ashes before getting the quest. The Bloodgrass topic is not added if player finished the Main Quest before starting quest. Hal-Liurz does not follow player properly when asked about the cure. The player is able to collect a reward more than once from the Count.


PC & XBOX360 solution: Download the patch (PC patch link). Or, for PC users,

Open the console by pressing ~ and type player.additem 000977E4 1 to put the Cure Vampirism potion in your inventory.

Vampire Face Bug
For some, once you become a vampire, when you save and load, your character has the default race face.

PC & Xbox360 Solution: Load a saved game prior to you being a vampire, and then load your vampire game.

When The Vow Breaks
A second instance of Rockshatter appears back on Bjalfi's dead corpse after saving and reloading.

Solution: Return to a save where you have one or no Rockshatters in your inventory, then apply the patch, which fixes the quest.

Otherwise, you will need to remove all the Rockshatters from your inventory until there is one left. Open the console with ~ and type.

player.removeitem 00014EC4 1*

*...the final input being how many you want to remove. Replace the 1 with that number, so you could have, for example:

player.removeitem 00014EC4 10, which would remove 10 Rockshatters.

Where Spirits Have Lease
Velwyn Benirus won't help you "Lift The Curse" regardless of how high his disposition is.

Solution: make sure you have both the skeletal hand and journal entry in your inventory.
