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.

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?

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.

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.

Book duplication and Oghma Infinium

I just started another playthough (mainly to try to collect everything I can).

Anyway, I did find that the duplicate book glitch and the Oghma Infinium level up glitch still work! I have all DLC and all updates. I've read that these don't work, but I just did them both the other day.

I did this in Breezehome in Whiterun (didn't try with any other bookshelf).

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


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.

It seems to freeze more often and take longer to load since the 1.4 update.

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...

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

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.

Anyone have a fix for this one? This is exactly the same problem I'm having, and I don't have a save that I can revert to unless I jump back a full 10 levels in gameplay. I've played to the point of Level 71 legit and now I can't leave Jorrvaskr as it freezes the game every time. I've tried everything, so I guess I literally can't play the game anymore from that save. I have also completed the Companions quests a long time ago and I'm unsure why the game freezes here...only went in Jorrvaskr to find the One-handed trainer, as I was working on improving that skill.

Try waiting 12 hours then leaving. Or put all your crap in a container and then you should be able to leave and come back. Or try saving and reloading might work.

This happened a few weeks ago, can't leave Jorravskr I waited then tried, dropped all my items then tried, did both then tried and nothing, any news for a possible fix or an update coming soon because I have a manual save from over 20 levels ago back when I was 37.

The counter for "days as a werewolf" is still going up even though I am no longer a werewolf. I also cannot get the well rested bonus anymore.

What the hell Bethesda. I AM NOT A WEREWOLF NOW. IT SHOULD NOT INCREASE!

Angry Cannot Leave Jorrvaskr (Game-Breaking Glitch)

Okay so I'm posting in here instead of the main glitch thread because I'm looking to find a fix. That thread only seems to list glitches as I've only seen a few that have been responded with fixes.

Basically I'm stuck in Jorrvaskr (the home to the Companions guild) and cannot leave. Every time I've tried to leave this building the game freezes on me. I've done all the quests quite a long time ago and only went in to receive training in the One-handed skill so I'm not sure why it's happening now rather than back when I was doing the Companions quests.

Does anyone have a fix for this? I don't have a save close enough before this point, and I'd rather not have to start the game over simply because I entered a damn building lol... I've experienced plenty of the other glitches, including the game breaking ones and this one takes the cake! Experienced the one where you do the entire Thieves Guild quests and then can't progress through the Nightingale door, but jumped through the glitchy-gap thingy on the side of the door to make it through muhahaha. Encountered the Dark Brotherhood coffin glitch where you can't progress, but waited in-game and pressed the guide button a million times during the cutscene and evaded that glitch (Not sure how that fix works lol, but cool I'll take it)! Seen dragons floating around violently like they were possessed by a demon and dragon souls that would not absorb when I near the dragon. Seen Dragon Shouts from Word Walls not absorbing when you near them (on 4 different occasions), but still managed to be lucky enough to get at least one of each shout and the shout achievement. Also became thane of every hold only to get to Winterhold and to realize that the drunken guy that is the main way to get into the Jarl's good graces was killed long ago in one of the College of Winterhold quests, and was happy enough to find a work-around for that. But after all that glitchy non-sense and progress just 10 levels away from the level cap, my luck has finally run out as I'm unable to leave a freaking building. :/

o LucasMcCain o's Gamercard
I have not had this issue, but I have had some others that were solved by loading an earlier save and doing the exact same thing again. You said you didn't have a recent save. There should have been an autosave made when you entered the building. There should be another when you entered Whiterun, or when you fast-travelled to Whiterun (though that save will be wherever you fast-travelled from.) Try loading these, repeat your actions (training and whatnot) and then see if you can leave. Hope this helps.

All my autosaves were re-written in trying to reload and attempting to leave the building again. All I have is a save from 10 levels before, and I've done quite a bit between then..

I've had exactly the same thing happen to me. Got a Rescue Mission from Vilkas, completed it and now can't leave Jorrvaskr.

Luckilly i had a save from just before taking this quest so i was able to load that. Haven't been back inside Jorrvaskr since!

Lol I wouldn't be surprised if there was a game-breaking glitch for the College of Winterhold as well. Then there would be one for each of the main 4 guilds! I don't think Oblivion was this glitchy in a negative way. It's ok, I can start from 10 levels behind. Leveling up just gets kind of slow when you get high up in the levels....and I like to collect things in the game. I'll have to do all that collecting over again blah!! lol Thankfully this is my favorite game and I don't mind much.

I am thinking this happens when you go into Jorrvaskr and pick up the Daedric Heart. Not 100% sure, but I never had this issue till I wanted to start collecting the hearts for armor.

Another thing about it locking up, I had been head of the companions a LONG time, never had a problem till one day I walked in and found Skjor lying on the floor dead. Sheesh!!! Whats with this game????

Companions Totem problem *slight Spoilers*

I ran into a bug last night

I would ask Aela for work at the Companions(i have finished the main Companions quest) and she babbled on about some Totem we have to go and get,and my waypoint took us to Sunderstone Gorge

when we arrive there,we go through the cave mouth to a loading screen.....and my 360 locks up during loading,this happened 3 times at the same point last night before i gave up and went to bed

as the place is supposed to be random,i tried it again today from an earlier autosave where she gave me the quest again,however i was hoping Sunderstone Gorge was random,and perhaps she would give a new location,however,she didn't...i tried again anyway and it still locks up when loading the cave

The thing is,i have been to Sunderstone Gorge on my own and cleared the place,but now with Aela in tow,i can't even enter the cave

anybody else had this problem?

Fused dragon

I had intresting glitch today. I went to kill dragon but it had something ''special'' in it. I had some how goten fused dragon . Dragon what I was kiling was just Dragon but after it health dropped under 30% and it was still flying. Sudenly the name changed to Elder dragon and health went back up. No problem but after I got the Elder dragon killed. I had to still kill the Dragon. After I got that killed too I got only one soul.
So they where actually fused together in one dragon?
