The Skyrim Glitch Thread (Discuss All Glitches Here!)
 
Given the sheer scope of Skyrim we all knew glitches would occur and they have. If you feel you have experienced a glitch, whether it be related to a quest, skill, perk, enchantment or whatever else, discuss it in this thread. There are way too many threads cluttering this forum to discuss glitches.

Before you ask about whether or not your glitched, it's best to check the official bug list over at the Bethesda forums. The thread is also a great tool to read over to prevent getting some glitches. The the list can be found HERE.

During the Stormcloak rebellion storyline, After finishing the quest before invading solitude my quest log would not update and my marker stayed at the Fort. Luckily I made my way to solitude anyways and was able to do the next quest involving capturing Solitude and still got the achievement for it.

Received 1st Word of Elemental Fury from outside shrine near Kilkreath Ruins. Now I cannot receive the other 2 words for this shout; Dragontooth Crater word wall, Shriekwind Bastion word wall.
I can however still receive other words from other word walls without incident.

Audio is present when approaching wall, however no 'word' is glowing & word is not received.
video of similar example: http://youtu.be/0GPHuwsyNZc

There's too many grey areas, half the time i don't know if i have a glitch or not.

The inability to either dump quest items after the quest or have NPC's glitch and not talk to me about quests is annoying.

Dragons not spawning, & dragons can be invisible....hmmm, which glitch do i have??

enchanting
 
I disenchanted s mage robe with destruction spell costs less and magicka Regen, and they got put together as one enchantment. But now when try to disenchant something with just magicka Regen (i.e. Amulet of akatosh, necromancer robes) it says I already have it. is there a way to fix this?

yosambo 12-08-2011 05:03 AM

The only problem I've had so far is one backwards flying dragon that won't attack me. I'm sure there's a lot more I'll experience before I'm through though.

seek the sky
 
all you have to do is head straight towards any nearest mountain look for what you would think is a path or slope up or ledges and just start jumping keep looking up around from left to right while still looking up eventually you willl learn that this is not easy but does work you can find some cool places and many glitches by becoming trapped in moutain sides etc just have strong batteries ready and strong finger for the y button and turn yourself into the duracell bunny you will be passsing over those giant looking mountains in no time

Vaermina daedric quest,

The guy I am supposed to follow disappeared after entering the temple near
Dawnstar. After multiple reloads and zoning he still won't reappear.

grantandsherri 12-08-2011 03:34 PM

Biggest glitch i have run into, at the Darkbrotherhood sanctuary in Dawstar, i feel through the floor to the tunel you go through to get to Cicero... I then followed the path up into his chamber.... turned around... there was a wall.... i didnt walk through a wall....

Also, my thieves guild quest will not move forward the guy never goes to the rat wat travern...

BrenteusMaximus 12-08-2011 03:43 PM

Finally broke my backwards dragon cherry. Saw one attacking a hargraven outside the eldergleam sanctuary. Tried attacking but it wouldn't fly low enough to take any hits and would never land for some melee fun. Also at one point it vanished. Damn romulan dragons and their cloaking devices! Just reloaded my autosave and left the area. Why attack a dragon i can't even hit, right?

Also had a random dead guard show up outside arcadia's in whiterun. I just came out of the shop and therre was a whiterun guard corpse. Funny thing was, Ysolda reacted to it so I'm not sure if it's really a bug or just a strange thing that randomly happens in game. Anyone else experience this?

Sometimes when you exit a building, the game will grab a random character and freak out on their placement. For me this happened with Nazeem. I walked out of Arcadia's and saw him moving all around and super high speeds. He finally stopped moving 300+ feet in the air in front of Warmaiden's. Needless to say, when he hit the ground after his fall, he didn't survive. I suspect this happened with the guard you mentioned.

On a side note, it's kind of funny since Nazeem's corpse never goes away so every time I shop at Warmaiden's there's like four people huddled around his body asking what happened. I wish I could reply "the gods punished him for being an arrogant prick."

SpinelesS 12-08-2011 05:07 PM

Sometimes when I am buying stuff that a store has a few of (not enough that the amount slider appears) the list of store items will scroll down after I purchase an item. Kinda annoying but not a big deal :)

I have also had a character fall to their death when I enter the area. It's a problem all their games seem to have...

Can only Silent roll continuously if I am wielding certain weapons (like a bow) - you should be able to do so with nothing wielded...

The more I play the game, the more frequent freezes seem to be.

Ria (member of the companions guild) hates me for some reason and attacks me on sight.

Not sure if this is a bug or not but on completing the quest "Scoundrel's Folly" I was given the deed to goldenglow estate. But the place is still locked up with mercenaries who wont let me in and threaten to kill me.

Also not sure if its a bug but I have done the "find the helm of winterhold" miscellaneous quest 3 times (different location each time)

I also Have "Collect bounty from Skold" stuck on my miscellaneous quests (killed a giant for a bounty)

Killed the dragon at Bonestrewn Crest, and a mountain seemed to block his death animation, stopping him from dieing.

Have Miscellanesous quest to "kill the dragon at lost tongue overlook" but have already killed him before. There is no pointer on the map, and even when he respawns, killing him doesn't count toward the quest. (all riften bounties seem to glitch if you have already killed them before)

The Eastern Door to Proudspire Manor is locked and needs a key to open (The key that came with the house isnt unlocking it)

Also: Blessing of Talos: "Time between shouts is reduced 0%"... Either thats a typo or maybe he really isn't a god.

This has also happened to me except I decided to clean up the streets and pile the bodies under the bridge.

TombRaiser 12-08-2011 06:06 PM

I was wondering where Jenassa (Hirling at Drunken Huntsman) had gone to after I hired her and then let her go. So, I searched for information about her disappearing, and it seems that she will end up at the Whiterun Stables after you let her go and not return to The Drunken Huntsman. In addition to that, there are 3 copies of the NPC Louis Letrush in the same area. Strange.

BBDrew84 12-08-2011 08:24 PM

Really the only glitch I have encountered is when selling items to a shop keeper. The courser jumps around randomly, for example I will make a bunch of daggers and then sell them to a shop keeper and it will go from the 2nd dagger in my inventory to the 10th.

I did not notice it until 40 hours into the game and I inadvertently sold a few items that I wanted to keep. It is not a random occurrence for me it happens when ever I try to sell more than one item. Anyone else have this happen to them?

Also I do not think its a glitch but you can play hide and seek with a little girl in Markarth, I forget her name, but it will count as a misc objective and you can do it over and over. I imagine that one could use this to get the Hero of the People achievement, although it would be kind of silly since there seems to be a million misc quests to do.

hahahaha i wish it had been Nazeem. He's such a d-bag!

Had a new one in kynesgrove outside the mine. A soldier's corpse spawned in front of the two guys hudled outside the mine, except only his head and one arm were sticking out of the ground. almost looked like the guys did a half ass burial lol

Dunny 12-08-2011 08:29 PM

Soul trap on a corpse for easy exp is a personal fave.

oooo yeah 12-08-2011 09:23 PM

What this site needs is a spoiler free list of quests to be cautious of and also a list of dungeons to avoid unless a quest takes you there. For example:

Geirmund's Hall - (Forbidden Legends side quest)

There are many many other side quests and misc. objectives that get stuffed up due to exploring and looting before the intended quest takes you there. Would be an extremely helpful thread for anybody trying to have a glitch free playthrough. Having all of them listed in simple fashion in a single post instead of spread over several pages on several threads.
To be honest, a glitched misc. objective (of which I have about 8) doesn't bother me too much (unless it's supposed to lead to a side quest or main quest) but I can understand people who want to have that 100% completion feeling and get pissed off with a list of unfinishable quests.
@Method, maybe you could keep updating your first post as others report on their glitched quests? Or maybe start yet another thread?

BBDrew84 12-08-2011 09:51 PM

Just came across a glitch. I completed the miscellaneous quest to find Red Eagle's Sword, quite early in the game, and I just came across another The Legend of Red Eagle book that put the quest back in my log. Later on tonight I am going to see if I can complete it again.

tweak4ever 12-08-2011 10:22 PM

BIG annoying glitch for me. After I completed the companions storyline a LONG time ago, I am unable to leave Jorrvaskr, thats right. I can go in fine, but no matter what I do, the game freezes EVERY TIME with failure on the loading screen to leave. I do not have this problem anywhere else in the game, and this is annoying as fuck...

Bunglist 12-08-2011 10:56 PM

I've been fortunate in that I haven't encountered any real glitches... until now. The infinite guard dialogue loops after completing forsworn conspiricay and then having a bounty in Markarth are a fucking nightmare... especially now that i'm completing the Stormcloak quests and need to blackmail the Jarl of Markarth. Has pretty much broken the game, gonn need to play from a much earlier save now :mad:

XxBlueSpade2xX 12-09-2011 05:05 AM

I didn't play for a few days then signed on to find an update. Downloaded it, couldn't absorb dragon souls (found out later this was because I had already absorbed these specific dragon's souls, but I had been absorbing them over and over apparently). Also after the update I fast travelled to a standing stone and the a "Standing Stones" achievement popped up.

After the Companions questline, I still couldn't get out of third person. I ended up doing the "Purity" quest twice (after hours in between) and still couldn't get out of third person. Then during one of the Daedric quests, the one where you fly up into the sky at the beginning and end, I was able to switch to first person. But now I can't switch to third person.

Honestly, none of this has ruined the experience. It's been sort of frustrating though.

I also had this happen. I haven't gone back to see if I can complete it again.

This seems to be the biggest problem I'm having right now. I have a few quests that are finished, but won't leave my active quest list. This one with Red Eagle's Sword and Escorting Telrav (sp?) stick out in my mind at the moment.

It's been little things so far. I always laugh when I kill someone and they just stand up. They are dead, I can search their corpse (it's even listed as a corpse) but they just stand there, in a fighting stance. Here's hoping that's the worst of it!

I've noticed this too, and think that a list of these would be a great idea.

Faceless mage: "Archmage's Robes" + any mask as Morokei or Volsung. Useless but funny, i like it this way =)

While this is annoying, it can be easily fixed. Find a free unowned container and drop all your daggers into it.

Close the box and re-open it. All your daggers will be stacked. (eg. iron dagger [51])

That's a good tip, thanks. Been annoying me since the start. I only wish I could do it with the stones of Barenziah. For some reason I had a group of 5 stones but the rest listed separately filling up a huge part of my misc. inventory.

i remember reading that book and grabbing the sword (the final boss guy was actually pretty beast), there was another "legend of the red eagle" book inside the dungeon / area. i dont remember it putting the quest back in my log, im pretty sure it was out of the journal after i was done. i did put both books on my shelf tho:p


something that has been agrivating me
well im 95% sure this problem has to do with the redguard woman in whiterun (saudia). when the alikr were looking for her i decided to be nice, investigate then take out the alikr warriors. instead of doing the easier option and just snitching on where she was hiding out. to be more specific, i DID NOT accept the offer that head alikr guy gives you. i just killed them all.

all is well and i kicked their ass, got the reward from saudia n she is still chillin at the bannered mare. the problem is after about 4-5 game days these two alikr show up and just stand like statues at the entrance of whiterun (inside the town). this happened to me last playthru and its annoying as hell, especially since i spend the most time in whiterun.

is there any solution to getting them the hell out? i know the guards kicked them out before in the story, but they just dont give a rats ass now. i would rather avoid just killing them, but im thinking it might have to come to that.

there's also stuff where you don't realize there is another part to the "quest" - like, after you beat the game and you think you're done with the Elder Scroll, you can't drop it. Because you have to give it to the lilbrarian at the college for $2K. But no one tells you that.

shadowr4ven 12-09-2011 04:18 PM

Season Unending:


I had this glitch. I sat, nothing happened. I figured out on my own that I needed to finish the first battle before either side would make a truce - since maybe they needed something to truce FROM. So instead of talking about a truce, I continued with the story and finished The Battle For Whiterun. After that, I asked both about a truce, went to the mages and then the Season Unending started just fine.

So, if you have a save file from before you asked about a truce, or you are just started, keep this in mind. I was the Stormcloak side - so from that point of view you must finish The Jagged Crown FIRST or you can't continue to the Message from and Battle For Whiterun.
