This should be stickied or linked to the FAQ.

I was about to post a few questions about this achievement and almost missed this because it was at the bottom of the page.

All my questions were answered. Now I just hope none of these quests glitch on me.

You could add how to trigger the quests, as I don't think those details are in the achievement guide, it's only the quest title. That'd help a great deal.

For the quest where you need to find the guy in the bar for a drinking contest after you turn level 14..

Well, I didn't know about this and I'm level 41 now. Obviously I can't remember where I turned 14 so is there a list of taverns where the guy might be? I've been to all the ones I can think of and haven't been able to find him.

Well I think I've cocked this achievement right up.

I'm at the end of my game with nothing needed but this last achievement. I've been working my way through the daedric quests and only have 3 more left to do.

I'm trying to start 'A Daedras best friend' but when I enter falkreath and went to talk with Lod I find him dead!! I can't remember killing him but to be honest I could have done ages ago. Is their any other way to start this quest? I've tried looking around for the dog but no luck.

Both are daedric.
The Black Star will actually hold both white and black souls (even though you're told it will only hold black). So for obvious reason's I'd suggest getting the black star.

Thats a bug which will probably get fixed, so I wouldnt make a choice based on that.

Nice Q+A guide, but... font is so big it makes my eyes hurt. I realize this is probably to emphasize importance to avoid multiple threads, but still, just sayin'... huge font doesn't show up in search, make it sticky, or prevent people from creating new threads asking for answers discussed here.

Please make it more readable, I suggest just Bolding the question (Q: Who What Where Why?)and Italicizing the answers (A: Them, that, there, just because).

Should be stickied, at least it's linked in Method's Encyclopedia Skyrim Thread.

One more 'missable' one to get and then I can relax a little at least, then it is just a case of awaiting the hopefully triumphant noise of the achievement popping after getting a few extra that I still need.

Nice, concise and straight forward Q + A though, nice work!

You have to talk to the guard when you first enter falkreath if i remember if you havn't done this then the dog won't appear i don't think, once you see the dog you can just fast travel to the location though as the dog is terrible at guiding you

Sorry for the 4 posts in a row just helping people out

It's entirely random just keep checking them all you will find sam eventually

Tip: Put subtitles on you might not see him but will know if he's in the room when he speaks to you

Excellent guide. Thanks, OP.

I just want to add that it's also possible to F-up the Malacath quest. If the attacking giant kills the orc you're supposed to talk to outside Largashbur, you'll be permanently locked out. Happened to me and I didn't realize its importance until much later. But I haven't done Hircine yet and I don't think I've missed any other artifacts, so maybe I'll still get it.

I hate this f#@king stupid Chev! I didn't see you shouldn't destroy the Skull of Corruption until now, level 53 and 150 hours in ,Game finished, 970Gs and now i have to go back a 100 hours and start this again!

If you're going to make choices that affect the ability to get an Achievement you should be told because going back all this way is an easy way to piss me off Bethseda!

You will still get the achievement as long as you exploit the one where you can get 2

Great new look man! I especially looking forward to knowing what unlocks the different quests... as much as I've noticed they all start out under Miscellaneous until you fully trigger the quest, such as the seemingly random guard asking "did you see a dog?" .....ummmm.... there were a bunch of wolves....

...bout 100 hrs of random guild quest hunting & discovering, bout halfway through Oblivion Walker with no miss-steps [that i know of] so far, I notice a Misc objective "Talk to Lod" ooooooohhhhh you want me to find THAT dog ? Yeah, I remember never seeing a dog 100 hours ago? sure. which kicked off "Daedra's Best Friend"...

...or the seemingly stuck "Talk to Deggaine" wouldn't go away and he wouldn't take any other Dibella Statue I had in my inventory, He wanted the one from Markarth's Temple, finally snuck in & out on a random trip back through the town when my sneak was way higher than before to give him that one, then went back in to get caught to trigger "Heart of Dibella", but there's one that's got me worried i hope its not a daedra glitched quest kickoff... like I've heard Lod can be dead by a dragon you never saw or fought?

I'm supposed to "Go to Arivanya in Windhelm and pick up the item". She the "show on map" is greyed out only for this quest, can activate it but NO location arrow ^ Through searching here and the wiki's I've gathered she is a possible victim of the Butcher in Windhelm even though I shot the Butcher with an arrow in time to save some other girl in the market, no idea what the item is, only that she's probably dead. If its just a random miscellaneous 50 [Hero of the People] no worries I have 180 but please tell me if it's nothing or does this mean my Oblivion Walker is screwed this run

dammit, i've done all the quests but killed eola and cant do that one so i got both artifacts from hercine quest and had 1 left which is sanguine's rose and its glitched. i do the drinking game with sam guevenne and nothing happens, no blackout or anything. i cant believe there are so many glitches in this game. i've got no saves earlier enough so i'll leave it and wait for a patch.

Thanks, I did find one and will try tonight. At least Skyrim's bugs aren't all bad.

Boethiah's giving me trouble too. Hit the bug where I can't start the conversation with her. Read the wiki on it and hopefully one of the workarounds there will suffice. If not I *think* I can scrape by with both from Hircine.

It may be aggravating at times, but this is still the best game I've ever payed $60 to beta test.

Posted for a few reasons:

1. I know that this has gone and passed, but still... if you want to be an honest player then just don't do the quests that require you to stray from your wanted path. If you are truly sticking to your honest playthrough you would miss all the Thieves Guide and Dark Brotherhood Achievements, as this would result in "dis-honest" playing. This means you aren't getting all the Achievements for this game, so you clearly don't mind not getting the Achievements... so, if that's the case, then why are you so bummed about having to be dis-honest for this Achievement? Just don't do it. If that ISN'T the case, and you go for all the Achievements, that means you did the Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood Quests... which means, again, you're straying from your honest playrthrough. If THAT'S that case, then why complain about having to do these few dis-honest Achievements when you did all the other ones...? There's also the fact you have to go through an entire war for 3 Achievements... Just... such a stupid thing to complain about... but hey, I guess I'm ranting for no reason. /stops

2. If you're having a problem with talking to Boethiah (the person who posted about it probably figured it out already, but for anyone else) after she has possessed your companions body and it bugs (when she just keeps repeating the same 2 lines), the next part of the quest is to kill everyone there and become the "last man standing". Even if she doesn't tell you to, just proceed to attack everyone in sight until everyone is dead and Boethiah will possess the last person to die and continue with the quest as normal.

The part where you have to kill everyone while sneaking doesn't seem to be required, but if you, like I, decide you want to sneak kill everyone anyway, you can either:

a) Get Sneak to 100
b) Get Sneak and Enchantment to 100 and create Sneak+ armor

or, you can "cheat" and either:

c) Get the Invisibility spell
d) Get the Invisibility spell and get Enchantment to 100 and create 4 pieces of equipment that reduce the cost of Illusion spells 25% each (resulting in all Illusion spells costing 0) for pretty much constant sneak. Also, the Muffle spell is in the Illusion school, so that's 0 cost for that too.

and 4, which is the main reason I posted, do you require the Ebony Blade to be upgraded to get this achievement? I have no real interest in the Blade, nor do I really feel like upgrading it until I have to. It's just, there's no quest to tell me to do it, so hopefully I don't have to. I would normally just google and hope for the best, but with this new bill from the US, most sites I use are "on strike" and I can't find it.

Also, there also seems to be another missable Daedra Quest. I fast travelled to the place with the Museum (not knowing this was the place OR that it was a Daedra Quest) and for some reason I had a mage attacking me. I have no idea why and the guards wouldn't do anything and since he was using Frost, I couldn't run so I killed him and got the "Failed: <insert Quest name>" message. Now that I'm doing the Daedra Quests I suddenly realise why I can't do this one. Just thought it would be important to point out that you can easily miss these by killing the wrong people. They should be listed as essential NPCs...

confused still...

I dont understand this still. I'm on a second player for achv. hunting on this title because I messed up the first time. And i know for a fact the last two(count this time) I haven't.

Can you really sell the items or not? This last attempt I have not sold any of the items and the only item I have no gotten is the S.Key which don't count, and I have all the items needed(16) in my house at Riften. On previous char I had all the items needed but had sold the Waabajack, Rose, and Skull. But i still had obtained all 16(counting the S.Key) and still no achievement .....

any suggestions?

Are you certain you have all 4 of those? Did you kill the dog and get the Rueful Axe? Did you let Silus go and not get the Razor? Not sure, but make sure you have the right items, otherwise you won't get the Achievement.

Also, selling the items or using them doesn't change anything. Aslong as you've had the items for even a second it still counts towards the Achievement. Though, the Skeleton Key does not. Though, either the guide lies or it's a bug yet to be fixed.

yeah I'm postive i've double checked and checked. I made sure I took the C.Vile not the axe since the vile is deadric, i got the black star, mail, blade, spell, dawn, the book, the orc warhammer, the rings, the hide, staffs. I have every single item that is deadric in the game, and nothing.
atm i have them all in my inventory and some equiped and nothing....
the only thing I can think of is(and i've done this with both trys) does abusing the book for power leveling so I could fly through the quest break or do anything the progress?(i still have the book i never destroyed it, just used it too mass level as a world item as you could in oblivion)

Not sure if it matters, as I'm still waiting on an answer but have you powered up the Ebony Blade from the Whispering Lady quest? It may require you to have it fully upgraded, but I don't know. Also, did you actually equip the Ebony Mail and finish that part of the quest? Pretty sure there was a little bit left after that. As for the book, I'm 99% sure you can abuse it all you want. Aslong as you've had it should add to the Achievement, as it's happened with everyone else. Though, there's always the chance you actually have to use it, but I doubt that. Apart from that, it could just be a bug.

Okay, I finally just got my last Achievement for Skyrim, even though I couldn't do the Razor Artifact. c:

Got the Ring and the Hide, made sure I'd equipped everything, went to get the Wabbajack (or whatever it's called) and got the Achievement as soon as he gave me it. Didn't have to upgrade the Ebony Blade, so that question was self answered. Also, I used the book as soon as I got it so that doesn't effect it. I also had, and handed in, the Skeleton Key. Don't know if these affect anything, but giving as much info as possible.

Im glad it helped

also someone mentioned something about the guide being mistaken somewhere, all the information given is 100% accurate to get the achievement

I would post more help / answer questions people ask but it's been that long since I last played Skyrim I don't think I would be of much help anymore.

After getting the 1000 g's I have erased the world of skyrim from my memory and would take countless hours to remember everything I did during quests and otherwise.

But good luck guys i hope you all prevail against this dodgy achievement.
