Skyrim talk:Gauldur Blackbow

Blackbow and Blacksword both bugged (both not labelled as bugged)Edit

Black bow broken in same manner as Gauldur blacksword. Just went to do both today at level 37. I did do Under Saarthal previously at a lower level (though I'm pretty sure I was above 18, I didn't start the main quests until quite a while in). The Draugr boss was depressingly easy (seconding another person's note on the Blacksword discussion page) which led me to believe that indeed, the draugr boss didn't level properly according to my level when I went in (or it was... doing some strange calculation based on when I took up the quest).

A note should perhaps be added to the Gauldur Black weapons, that it seems they can all be glitched/broken in a similar manner, and people wanting the best version may want to wait until very high levels before even starting the quest. (Level 40 + quest start seemed to at least give a 27-35 lvl sword, my guess would be the same for the bow). - PS3 console, latest update (from Dragonborn release day, bought it, but no expansions have been installed yet). — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 22:35 on 21 February 2013

I posted this on the Blackblade discussion page as well, but I think what's most likely happening is that the level of the sword and the bow are determined whenever the cell containing the entrance to their respective dungeons is loaded (you don't even have to discover the location, just be near enough for it to be loaded) In other words, if you want to obtain the highest level version, you have to avoid going anywhere remotely near the dungeons in the quest before level 36.Thevehicle (talk) 02:36, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Lakeview Manor weapon rack destroyedEdit

I put this weapon on one of the four weapon racks in the entryway of a fully upgraded Lakeview Manor and suddenly as I look after some adventuring I find the rack it was on has no item in it and cannot be interacted with. I cannot seem to fix this rack through any console commands like recycleactor, so my manor is permanently broken. Thanks, Bethesda. Theomniadept (talk) 01:49, 23 April 2014 (GMT)

This can happen to almost any weapon on almost any weapon rack. As you have the console you can create a new weapon, and disable the rack so at least it doesn't appear. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 17:15, 24 April 2014 (GMT)
