So i have one artifact quest left, The Whispering Door, and from what i read it is trigged in whiterun and has to do with the jarl and his son. Well, i have already done the stormcloak rebellion quest line and they have conquered whiterun, thus the jarl is no longer in power. Is there like...an another way to trigger the quest? or am i SoL and will have to reload a super old save and do the quests again?

That's a good question, haven't tried it yet. According to trueachievements.com (http://www.trueachievements.com/a157068/oblivion-walker-achievement.htm?showguides=1) they claim that even if you choose the Stormcloaks doesn't affect this quest.

Haven't tested this myself, but according to the official guide, the Jarl and his family relocate to the Blue Palace in Solitude after the rebellion. The quest can apparently still be done, although it will involve a certain amount of quick travel between the Blue Palace and Dragonreach.

I tried to google it but i couldnt find anything either way about it. I have tried having the bars maid tell me about the problem to trigger the quest, but she wont say it D:.

I did it this same way with no problems.

** INFO **

Though the Jarl changes, the boy can still be found around Dragonsreach. If you talked to the Jarl prior to him leaving it will be fast, but you can also travel to Solitude and talk to him about the boy there.

If you get the quest AFTER taking over Whiterun, you can speak to the new Jarl instead.

So I just did this quest today. Is it really this easy? Does the weapon as I picked it off the table count as the artifact? I know that Mephala says that it is currently an inferior blade to what the stories shared with it. And then tells you how to "strengthen" it. My question is, can I just leave it as is and get the Oblivion Walker achievement? Or do I have to kill some innocents for it to count? The quest said it was completed, but i didn't know if it was like the Mace of Molag Bal, that you have to purify the weapon or something.

yeah thats it, it has now counted toward your cheevo. i got it then left it in my chest where it has been ever since. its shite compared to a daedric battleaxe.

for some reason when I go to the old jarl of whiterun I ask where his kids are at but when I go try and talk to nelkir the quest won't pop up and when I started a new game I got most of them,but when I went to boethiah's sancellum those people weren't there.What do I do?

Talk to Hulda in the Bannered Mare. Make sure she gives you a rumour about the kids acting strange. Then talk to the jarl and talk about there behaviour.(the jarl will be in solitude if you defeated whiterun) Then talk to Nelkir.

The thing is though when I go to the bannered more Hulda isn't the innkeeper Ysolda is.I'm not sure if I killed her or not and when I try to ask for rumors when I talk to Ysolda the "have you heard any rumors?" dialogue won't pop up.

Unfortunately if Hulda is dead you cant start the quest. Ysolda will not give the rumour. I dont think anyone else will either.

fuck! if she isn't do you know where she would be? I started a new game because I had to redo the thieves guild quest and started to do the dadra achievement ,got most of them and when I got to boethiah's sancellum there was nobody there,so I can't do that quest until they patch it I guess.Know anyway to fix it?

That doesnt sound like the same quest. I think you are trying to do Boethiah's Calling? You need to be over level 30 to start and have read the book Boethiah's Proving. have you done this?
