Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Sergius will request that you pick up an item to be enchanted from a customer, located somewhere in Skyrim. The NPC will be in a city, won't be part of either the Thalmor or the College of Winterhold, and will have one of the following voicetypes: FemaleElfHaughty, FemaleDarkElf, FemaleEvenToned, MaleElfHaughty, MaleDarkElf, or MaleEvenToned. Most of the possible NPCs are elves, but not all. In total, there are 57 possible NPCs. Locate the NPC and speak with them to obtain the item required, which will be a piece of jewelry. Return to Sergius to complete the quest and be rewarded. You will be rewarded with a leveled amount of gold for the delivery of the item.

  • After the Thieves Guild quest Hard Answers, Aicantar may stay in Calcelmo's Tower and not leave. In this case, the dialogue option to accept the item from him will not be available. If you try and pickpocket him, he is not carrying the item. He is immediately hostile towards you, and you will receive a bounty in Markarth as a guard will come to your location. Attacking and killing Aicantar fails the mini-quest.
  • It is possible for Aicantar to randomly return to his original routine in Understone Keep after completing Hard Answers when receiving this quest; if this happens, receiving the Enchantment Pick-Up quest can force him to remain there for the duration of the game, or simply reappear at Calcelmo's Tower.
  • You may be directed to an NPC who is already dead (i.e. killed by a vampire if you have Dawnguard add-on installed), making the quest impossible to be completed.

Quest StagesEdit

  • The following empty quest stages were omitted from the table: 300.
  • Any text displayed in angle brackets (e.g., <Alias=LocationHold>) is dynamically set by the Radiant Quest system, and will be filled in with the appropriate word(s) when seen in game.
  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
  • If an entry is marked as "Finishes Quest" it means the quest disappears from the Active Quest list, but you may still receive new entries for that quest.
  • On the PC, it is possible to use the console to advance through the quest by entering setstage MGR10 stage, where stage is the number of the stage you wish to complete. It is not possible to un-complete (i.e. go back) quest stages, but it is possible to clear all stages of the quest using resetquest MGR10.
