  • Where is the key to unlock the Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon? Mad Scientist

    I just found the Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon, but unfortunately it is behind a locked door that cannot be picked. So I have to find the key if I want to get the Daedric artifact from Mehrunes Dagon.

    Where can I find this key and what quest is it connected to? Is this the typical Daedric Shrine where I perform a quest and get an artifact as a reward?

  • It's connected to Pieces of the Past, which unlocks when you're level 20. Once you turn level 20, a courier will inform you of a museum opening up in Dawnstar. There, you'll run into a guy named Silus Vesuius who begins the quest.

    During the quest:

    He'll task you with getting all three parts of Mehrunes’ Razor. Once you do that, he'll join you when going to the shrine, and will unlock it.

    Just as an additional aside (and major spoiler):

    At the end of the quest, you'll have a choice between killing Silas or letting him flee. You must kill Silas in order to get the Daedric artifact.

  • I have been completing the Oblivion Walker trophy/achievement but in order to get one of the Daedric artifacts you must talk to Silus Vesuius. Unfortunately, I killed him a while back and I have no save near then. On another one of my characters I'm around that level where I can complete the quest. If I get the artifact with that character (where I'd only have that 1) would it count towards the trophy with the other artifacts I have on my main character where Silus Vesuius is dead?

  • So I went to the Shrine of Peytite a while back and Kesh was annoying me so I killed him. Can I still start the quest The Only Cure? Or will I never be able to obtain that daedric artifact?

I have to admit that I finally just looked up the solution to the security question and the black... every key combo that I could think of on the 64-cube door island to no avail. I'm at a loss as to where I'm meant to find the last anti-cube. Any suggestions, friends? ... which room I found the writing cube artifact in and being able to scour it for clues). I translated as much text as I could find, so was able to read the security question in the candle room below

  • Can't buy Hjerim in Windhelm Brittany henriquez

    For the house in wind helm you have to complete the quest blood on the ice, but there's a glitch in my game and it won't let me start the quest. The graveyard is empty at night , no dead body. Really far back in the game I had killed nilsine and tova killed herself but when I went to the house of shattershield her body wasn't there, only her note. So I can't get the key to hjerim from her or the steward so is there another place I could get the key?

I had the ebony blade (daedric) and either dropped it in my home, put it in one of my chests or put it on a weapon rack and it has now disappeared.

  • I am playing Skyrim Dragon-Born DLC on a PC. I have a bounty, but I can't hand myself in -- I just get attacked. It stated that I attacked somebody at a shrine by accident, but after that I didn't commit any crimes. It's weird how I get attacked instead of them talking to me. It seems like there is no way to get rid of the bounty. I have tried on many occasions to hand myself into a different place from where I originally committed the crime.
