Cant finish bugged thieves guild quest.

So, I have 960 of the 1000... I have the final 30 from thieves guild and getting married (told my girlfriend if I did it at all it would be LAST)

Im trying to do the 4 special missions before the last mission in riften.

Ive got whiterun, markarth, solitude complete... Yet they Vex and the guy will NOT give me any missions to windhelm... I try at least 30 quit missions and nothing....

Ive seen some threads around the net with similar problems but no one on how to fix it...

OTHER than starting a whole new game and trying the thieves guild over... there has to be a way to fix this...

Please help

Thanks

I had to take and quit about 40 missions before I got ones in the towns that I wanted, I honestly thought it was bugged but it just took persistence. When I finished the TG I had completed -26 quests - but I had my achievement

Oh good, I thought this would've been another one of those "Oh no, stupid me sold the thieves armor!" threads.. but it's not.

So steal the thieves guild armor, got it.





Op are you sure you don't have a quest from him already? Friend was having a similar problem last night and it seems you can get more than one quest from him at a time and he didn't realize he had one already from the city he was trying to get. Hope that helps, I think you're having the same issue

I think many people have already tried this and it still didn't fix their troubles. It resulted in either the armor not counting for the quest, or the armor being unable to be stolen. Can't remember which.

That is, unless the latest patch fixed this quest bug?

I had a similar problem with Whiterun missions. I just kept taking jobs and quitting them until i finally received them in Whiterun.

Just keep trying and hopefully it will work.

When you are looking at the list of quests you can select from Vex and the other guy. The quests that are highlighted are for a certain town that you haven't completed that specific quest for. I'm not entirely sure, but you may have to complete the quests for Riften, and not just Markarth, Solitude, Whiterun, and Windhelm.

I had the same issue. I just kept quiting and asking for new quests and eventually got one. I always did the Burglary and Numbers quests (not sure if that will change anything for you).

I have had the same issue, no jobs offered in windhelm. What seems to triggered it for me was a visit to the east empire shipping company building at the docks in Windhelm, and doing the quest for orthus endaria(?). I recall Gulum-Ei's mentioned them in the earlier thiefs guild quests.
Anyway, after that I recieved windhelm jobs from Vex and Delvin. Did 49 of these jobs before ir triggered the final special mission.
Hopes this helped, could also be totally unrelated but give it a try.

I had a very similar problem, but I couldn't get quests in Markarth, and very few in Solitude, it was just constantly Windhelm and Whiterun all the time, got tired of listening to them moaning as well because I was cancelling a quest from them.

All I can say is to persevere, like a previous post said, and I had a similar experience, it could take up to about 40 times before it appears correctly for some people.

Not sure if it could be connected to just taking one type of quest all the time? I was taking only Shill and Book altering jobs as per the numerous guides out there to make my life easier. Would selecting a different quest type be beneficial perhaps? Just a thought.
