If you're talking about up until the [SPOILER]Peace Treaty[/SPOILER], you're right.
However, this can be remedied simply by completing the main questline. Once finished, you can get more quests from either the stormcloaks or the imperials.
No need to start a new game.

Yeah, I didn't mention it because I wasn't sure if this board had spoiler tags.

I haven't touched the Civil War at all, can I join a faction and do the missions from start to finish afterwards? If so, then I'll just finish the main quest.

I'm 99% sure you can, but I'd hate to give out false information. Someone might be able to confirm.

So just a question, why is the OBLIVION WALKER achievement missable?

Because some Daedric artifacts are missable.

I used this guide and ran into an issue with the thieves guild. When doing the main mission to return the skeleton key if you talk to the ghost and he opens the "pilgram's path" for you, then you leave, the path will close and not open again. I did this without knowing, so I could keep the skeleton key for other quests. I returned later and couldn't get in (making it impossible to get the final thieves guild achievement). I used this video to get around it----


It works perfectly and I got the achievement. Thought maybe this could/should be added to the guide as a *note.

Again, as I posted before, great guide. Just wanted to throw this out there for people that run into the issue I had.

The skeleton key is not considered a Daedric artifact

Savior’s Hide (or the Ring of Hirscine)

you can actually get both of these

When asked to choose to kill or let Sinding live let him live
after killing all the hunters and talking with Sinding kill him and skin him
upon doing this the spirit will appear take the ring and give you hide
when you exit the cave the Deer spirit will appear and give you the blessing

It IS a Daedric Artifact, but does not COUNT toward the achievement for collecting them. I think thatīs what VerifiedRasta mean to say, that IN GAME the Skeleton Key is not a Daedric Artifact since the game itself does not recognize it as one.

You did more than 40 for the thieves guild. I've done almost 50 and still no 4th quest.

EDIT: Wow, right after I post this...there it is...>_<

Thanks for the guide, just finished 1k this morning. I don't know if this has already been mentioned, but in order to restore the Thieves Guild to its former glory you must first complete five jobs in the four biggest cities (Whiterun, Markarth, Windhelm and Solitude); these could be any jobs assigned by Vex or Delven, and then do the special jobs for each city. So you must do a minimum of 20 side quests.

Also, if you have already begun the Thieves Guild main quest you must complete it in order to begin the Under New Management quest.

At a certain point you have to upgrade one piece of armor of your choosing, so as long as you still have at least one piece you're all good.

The last achievement I need is the Oblivion Walker one and what I want to know is if you do the thing where you get both the Savior Hide and the ring, does it count that as 2 Daedric Artifacts for the achievement so that you can do one less quest or do you still have to do all 15 quests?

Yes they will count as 2 Artifacts if you get both.

War Hero needs to be listed as missable because I just captured Solitude without ever getting a quest to capture either of the forts required for that achievement.

EDIT: This is confirmed. If you complete the main quest line, or at least Season Unending, prior to completing the Civil War you will not receive the necessary missions to obtain the War Hero achievement prior to completing the Civil War.

The description for War Hero needs this info, because without it, it is missable:

From UESP.net:

Quote:
"If Season Unending has been completed before starting this quest, then this quest is skipped and you proceed to False Front."
Quote:
"If Riften is given to the Imperials during Season Unending then this quest will not be given to the player."
Basically, if Season Unending is completed prior to Compelling Tribute, the quest is skipped.

Source - Stormcloaks

Source - Imperials

Rearding the Thieves Guild , at the end, when you're trying to impress the guild for the Thieves Guild leadership, does it matter how many small missions you do in each of the towns? Or is it just around 40, then you get your quests?
