Syd, if I remember correctly you dive into the water slightly to the right of the pier. I know it's real close to it. Sorry I can't be more specific than that. It took me a while to find it, too, because the map made it look like it was across the river, but it isn't.

If you're talking about the quest from the ghost that haunts the shore, the chest was up river near a dock, and there's a bandit camp immediately above the area.

But if you click on the quest in your journal it will direct you to the exact area. I had to use a potion of night eye to locate the chest as it's near some boulders on the river bottom and was hard to find. I jumped off the dock and swam a few strokes downriver. A Light spell would probably help better than Night Eye, but that was all I had.

If your stats page shows strength as red, then it is damaged and needs to be fixed. Or maybe you had a piece of equipment that upped your strength, and that's either broken or gone now.

I'm looking for the Great Welkynd Stone. I have come to a gate to the Morimath area and can't find a way to open it. In the large room before this, there is a button that seems to raise a cage over the varla stone. Is there a button I missed? Earlier I had to jump down from a bridge because I couldn't get another gate open.

I just found a mini-quest in my Skingrad House. Lots of small loot, too, for the reward.

I finally found the button. I didn't go far enough down one passage. Time for the big battle now.

Has anyone else found difficulty trying to find Shum gro-Yarug to buy Rosethorn? I've waited for him at the correct times every day of the week and he never turns up - AND I WANT THAT HOUSE.

It is a very pretty house. Have you talked to the female at the castle and gotten Shum gro_Yarug as a quest objective? Might be easier to track him with a lovely arrow pointing you in the right direction. I had him as a potential quest objective for some time before I had the spare cash to buy the house. wink

Pib, have done all that and it is my active quest but the arrow has remained on the castle although I have searched and can't find Shum gro-Yarug there.

Also something similar is happening to my much needed next quest from the Gray Fox. Completed TURN A BLIND EYE but, as I wait to obtain the Arrow of Extrication Quest the arrow remains on Anvil Castle. What is happening?

I had that problem with buying the Skingrad House, too. I never saw him at the castle during the day, and I could never find him at night.In the end I found him by waiting just inside the gate leading out to the Castle, in increments of one hour, and caught him coming towards the gate in the morning.

I was just at the castle. He was there at 10:30 in the morning and then left. I followed him to the Colovian Traders. He got there just after 12 noon. You might try there at that time.

Alice,

I thought you already bought the house in Skingrad. You told me of an easier way to jump-up to get the "Long Forgotten Note" in the top master bedroom. This lead to the "Rosethorn Cache". Remember me saying I hooked myself on the antlers to reach the note?

Thanks Hagatha and Pokey - will try your way.

Marilyn, I did buy it once but, if you remember, I made a mess of some thing or other and had to go back some way to a previous save - AND IT WAS ONE OF THE COMPLETED QUESTS I LOST. *&(%^$*

Out of sheer desparation (sp?) I started the Fighter's Guild quests and have been killing rats. RATS

What is the point of owning houses except for storage? Do you get any advancement points? The only one I own is the Benirus Manor in Anvil which I obtained through a quest. I've been selling most of my loot and storing a few "must haves" in the arch mage's chest at the university.

What else is there to spend your money on? Might as well have another house. This one comes with a quest and treasure as well.

I think the Arch-Mage's chest is strictly for ingredients that you want replenished. Seems I remember being told not to leave stuff in there more than a week or it might disappear.

I ran across Gro walking down the street in Skingrad. Had decided my two houses, one in Cheydinhal and the manor in Anvil, were quite enough. I was forgetting what I had at each house. However, I do like home decorating and I had scads of money, so Skingrad seemed a nice middle of the country location for a third abode! praise

There is a piece of furniture beside the bed in the Arch Mage's quarters at the university. On it is a dish which fills itself with fresh fruit every day. My equipment has been safe in this furniture. I've been leaving stuff here ever since I became Arch Mage which is about half a game ago. I haven't lost anything from here yet. This isn't the ingredient chest. I did lose stuff from the boss fighter's chest.

What is everyone's most difficult opponent? I can fight several daedra at a time but have the most trouble with goblins. Go figure.

I've tried the old drop-and-hope method, but it doesn't work very well!
The z key allows you to grab something. The trick is that you then use the normal movement to move the item over or on top of where you want it while holding the z key. Some things like cups are very tricky to rotate back to right side up. When you have your hand over something and press the z key, it doesn't look like anything happened, very confusing! But try lifting the cursor upwards...

I put Wabbajack into a Skingrad display case and felt very proud of myself. rotfl

I thought I put some stuff in the chest at the foot of the bed in the Arch Mage's quarters and it went away. Perhaps I did leave it in a different location though, I have enough houses around Cyrodiil! I didn't use the magic ingredient chest for storage, just for valuable ingredients. smile

Not the chest at the foot of the bed - the safe place is the chest of drawers on the left side of the bed near the head of the bed.

Oh well, all storage in your [city] house is perfectly safe. smile But that's potentially useful for other heads of the Mage Guild. There may be one spot like that per guild head office, but I'm not willing to risk the equipment to find out.

What determines quest payment amount?

I played fighters guild early in the game and many quests at the start gave me 100 gold for doing the contract. I watched my husband play the same quest (he started fighters later in the game) and he got 200 gold! What made the difference? He thought maybe personality level, but I wonder if it has to do with game level. Anyone know?

It's supposed to be your level in the game that determines many of those rewards. Much like he'd be finding better armor and weapons on the opponents as well.

Hi all,

Well I have been going around doing Deadra Shrine Quests for the special loot and I am really enjoying my summon Deadra helper. Its a lot of fun watching him run ahead of me and do my dirty work for me hehe. smile

Well like I said....this game would indeed be very short if it were only the Main Quest to do. Thank Goodness there are Guild Quests, Deadra Shrine Quests, Miscellaneous Quests, Freeform Quests, Dark Brotherhood Quests, and whatever I left out Quests.

Well one of my girls now has beautiful Ebony Armor and I just love the way it looks. I have not found any Glass Armor yet but hope that comes some time soon.

I do however have some glass weapons so maybe soon I will be able to find the Armor.

I remember that you could buy the Glass Armor
in Morrowind if you knew where to look. In this game the shops really do not have very good stuff to sell and they don't even have enough money to buy anything that is very expensive from you either.

I find that if you try to sell anything above the amount that they have then they won't buy it.

If you sell stuff below the amount of money they have available and only one at a time then they will buy it and their money never seems to run out. Weird.


Love Thy Neighbor

VHL - I have discovered that. If I've three Daedra swords to sell at, say, 750 Gold each. All three will be bought if sold only one at a time. Have recently sold a merchant with 800 gold level over 2,500gold bits and pieces in one visit without bother because not one thing reached his 800g level.

Now, after a no-go day yesterday I'm off to nab Shum gro-Yartub. Fingers crossed.
