    Seriously though, how the Hell do you get outta wolfskull cave??!?

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com/members/captaincamper/ Captain Camper

      Don’t think I’ve come across it yet. Where’s the Cave? May take me a while but I’ll head there and see if I can find the way out. 60 minutes tops (About to eat) :D

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com Mudryknow

      Just did that this morning. You have to go all the way to the end where the necromancers are summoning Daedra and you drop a bridge with a lever next to the alter and It’ll lead you to the first cavern, before you dropped in that little pit. I suppose you could try to jump out of the hole if you can’t kill those necros. What I wanna know is if you can actually let them summon that Daedra and get an artifact from it…

  • dovakiin

      I’ve level 40, have hardly explored anywhere yet. I’ve completed all quests in Riverwood and Whiterun, have about 25 in my journal that I’ve got from just following those quest lines, have yet to touch on any other towns properly.

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com Sevemac

    Stuck in Archmage Gauldurs caves. Cannot work out the stones combination to proceed. Any help out there?

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com sparky

      If you are talking about the cave where u reforge the gauldur amulet u use the for the first door you use the pattern on the front of the emerald claw and the second door is the ivory claw.

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com RansomDL

    Captain Camper, I am having trouble with my PC version of Skyrim assigning weapons, spells etc to the Item keys 1-8. I followed the instruction manual proceedure, but it does not work. Overall the Gameplay Controls on Skyrim are not as user friendly as they were in Oblivian.

    Can you help me with this issue.

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com/members/captaincamper/ Captain Camper

      Assigning keys should work pretty easily. Open your menu (tab) select magic or items. Highlight the item and then press any key 1-8. You should then see the number appear, if that doesn’t work you’re probably better off reporting it as a bug on Steam Forums

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com Warren

    I’m stuck on a quest. Shalidors Insight. I got it from the librarian in winterhold college. Not the one to get three books. Anyway I follow the marker and end up at a… Church I guess, behind solitude. I’m supposed to to go threw a locked gate and I don’t have a key. I’ve checked everywhere and even everyone’s pockets. How do I get threw this gate?

  • Raistlin

    I am stuck in Gauldur’s cave.Anyone know the stone combination?

    • http://www.gamecasa.net Triplebud

      When you saved the guy from the web he runs away. when you kill him he leaves a journal. if you read the journal it says “the answer is in the palm of your hand”. If you go into your inventory and rotate the golden claw it will show you the combo for the door on the claws palm. I think its bear, butterfly, owl.

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com Sevemac

      Gauldurs cave: I’ve rotated the hand and looked at the symbols + tried them but still no luck. V. frustrating.

      • http://www.gamersheroes.com/members/captaincamper/ Captain Camper

        All quests involving the dragon claws are done using the pattern on the claw? Very strange that it’s not working :/

        • http://www.gamersheroes.com Sevemac

          Gauldurs Cave, just across the water from Solitude; There is an ivory claw that has 3 symbols, but I’ve tried all the combinations on the pillars and still no luck. Perhaps i’ve missed something. But still stuck.

          • http://www.gamersheroes.com logan

            wrong puzzle/wrong clue dude.
            the claws gove the combo for the circular rotating locks on special doors,
            the puzzle you are talking about is with the rotating columns with icons on them . look at the walls. they have the combo on them . ( sometimes actually above and behind the column itself)

  • hia

    how do you do the quest in blackreach?

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com mewp

    I can’t get out of the keep./ I jumped to the inn but my hands are still bound. I need help.

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com mewp

    I think I messed up my mouse. At first I couldn’t look down or up now I can only look down. Tough when you need to see where you are going. Any ideas?

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com Warren

      Mewp. Do you have a ball mouse. If so take the ball out and clean off the rollers. If laser. Reinstall mouse or get new one.

  • Xavier

    I have a question. Is this a glitch or am I missing something..

    I have been enchanting daggers to level up my skill and make money. But recently, I’ve noticed, as my enchanting skill goes up, the value of the dagger goes down(at least, on the enchanting screen). Here’s an example. Just got banish, so enchanting an iron dagger, with max charges of banish with a petty soul gem. 1718 gold. Then my enchanting level went up, and the next dagger was 1702. Enchanting went up again, it was down to 1696-ish. I haven’t confirmed if this is also true when i sell to the merchants. Can anyone else confirm this, or let me know if i’m missing something.

    Thanks

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com/members/captaincamper/ Captain Camper

      It’s a bug, happens with a few skills. When raising speech, it becomes more expensive to bribe people and guards at higher levels. Bit confusing

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com pantball8

      its not that the enchantment lv increasing is making your enchantments worth less and its not a glitch its the fact that each soul gem has a different value based on the soul trapped inside the lower cost of the gem the lower cost of the weapon

  • Spooky187

    Iv been having trouble to access away into the house of the thiefs guild head guy. iv killed his guard an took the key but don’t know how to get to the second story window to enter the house an kill him for betraying the guil an finishing the quest. Please Helppppp??

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com/members/captaincamper/ Captain Camper

      At the back of the house, in the garden, the same place the guy patrols. There’s a wooden object that you can shoot with a bow and arrow. If you have the quest highlight in your journal, it should show you on the screen. The object is located next to the gate that’s at the top of the stairs, you can see it from the gate that leads out the back. Simply shoot it and it will release a platform that lets you get inside. Once inside, make sure you search every bookcase ;)

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com Sevemac

    Progressing quite nicely and managed to complete Diplomatic immunity, but how do I get all my gear back? Is there a chest I am able to access and if so where?

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com Sevemac

      Update, found all my gear in the chest in Delphine’s secret room. Should have spotted it earlier, sorry!

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com Spooky187

    Thx for the tip on the lever camp :-) but so now iv just done the mission where you uncover who the forsworn are an that there king is in the mine. But my problem is the city guards stop me an won’t take a bribe or let me go an keep attacking me is there a way to make them like me so I can finish all the missions in that city???? Or do I have to get locked up for my charges an go to the mine an brake out????

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com/members/captaincamper/ Captain Camper

      I’ve not done that bit myself, what level is your speech? Getting to 100 is pretty fast using our fast leveling guide, you can then usually ask Guards to look the other way if the crime isn’t to serious. Other than that, you can try a calming spell, and then trying to bribe them once you can talk to them.

      • http://www.gamersheroes.com spooky187

        My speech is level 60 but iv calmed the guards an they just keep coming an won’t stop now I got assissains coming from everywhere trying to kill me. Ill try leveling up my speech again an try again. But I’m not sure if it will work. I got tons of missions still to do in markula I think that’s the name of the city with mages doing the excavation. But plz help anyone plzzzzzzzzz.

      • spooky187

        My speech is level 60 but iv tryed to calm the guards an they just keep coming an won’t stop. I’m try to level up my speech again an try again but I’m not sure if it will work. I think the name of the city is markula I think,its the city with mages doing the excavation. But any help would be appreciated :-) might try the diplomatic immunity mission to see if they let me pass hopefully they do.

        • http://www.gamersheroes.com Sparky

          You have to let the guards take you to jail since the mine is the jail then u will be able to finish the quest.

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com T.Clements

    This website is really helpful thanks! Two questions, 1- I’ve got the amulet of mara and I’ve looked at your guide on how to get married and still I can’t find any1 that its works with? 2- if I’m not mistaken, the side mission where you have to find the forgers fingers to get into the orcs stronghold, I can’t find it even when I go to ‘show on map’please help! Thanks

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com/members/captaincamper/ Captain Camper

      The list of people you can marry is pretty reliable, there’s one or two on there that people are doubtful over but the rest are fine. I got the amulet straight away on my second character, since then I’ve got to level 35, a number of skills to 100 and completed the thieves guild. The only person that’s acknowledge that I’m wearing the amulet was some dude in a tavern however, I haven’t done hardly any quests outside of the Thieves Guild. Find the person you want to marry, help the Jarl in that town, help anyone else you can find and keep checking back with them to see if they offer any quests. Once you’ve done enough you should be able to talk to them about the amulet.

      • Xavier

        It also might be worth noting that there are in fact several “Amulet of Mara” in the game. (i found one in a chest) but the ONLY one that will work for getting married is the one you buy from temple priest for 200g.

        • http://www.gamersheroes.com QuincyB

          Oh wow, I didn’t know that. I’ve been wearing one I got off of a dead guy and I didn’t know why it wouldn’t work this whole time. Thanks for the info

          • Merlin

            This is not true, you need to speak to the guy in Riften about marriage before you can “propose”, meaning you can use any amulet, found or looted.

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com Your Name…

    I’m stuck on a quest called ‘under saarthal’ anyone know the combination you use with the pillars?

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com Ryan

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com BTrain

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com 3 books ???

    quest to find the 3 books, i only found 2 of them ( the guy i freed from cage was killed , did he have the 3rd ?? i checked hid dead body and didnt fint it

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com Nik

      the books are in the same room with a mage who will summon 2 flame Ado-something or other. I was attempting this quest as a vampire and got my butt kicked.

  • elite gamer

    I cannot wait to open Skyrim on Christmas. Just wondering a few questions on the game. Like can you join more than 1 faction? I’d like to do Theive’s guild and Dark Brotherhood. Also, thought of a good -not exactly a glitch- Khajit’s have a see in the dark right? Get Vampirism for an extra 60 seconds.

  • Tyler

    Hello. I resently got Skyrim two days ago. Im at the mission where u have to sneak into Solitude or w/e and guess what? Delphine keeps attacking me at the “Meet Delhpine at the Stables” part. If ANYONE could help, tht would be really appriceated.

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com halonod

      Make sure that you dont have any bounty on your head. U get that from getting into fights with guards and stuff like that. To pay off your bounty go to a guard, do something illegal and pay off the bounty.

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com helena

    hi there im stuck on a side quest to find the forgers fingers for the orcs but the quest does not pop up in my active quests and i have no clue where to start looking for it,may i please recieve some answer

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com Tom G

      stand at the front gate of the camp.
      go around to the right of it and you will find a cave or something similar close by, can’t remember name, kill everything and look into the chests inside, i think it is infested with conjurors. the fingers are in one of those chests.
