    Hey love the mod! I always like seeing quests based on lore thay add new stuff from previous games it just helps expand the game in a great way. I'm having one problem though... I can't find the staff! I'm probably doing something stupid and it's probably very obvious but I can't figure out where I'm supposed to get the staff :P

    Thanks for any help!

      You were supposed to get that at the same time as the katana, each item is on one side of the portal to exit the arena

      Oh, I've done a stupid :P NMM didn't tell me my mod was out of date but turns out I'm running version 1.3... Any specific advice for updating mid-quest? I think I have a save not too far before starting the quest as well if it would be better to have not started it yet. I downloaded the mod a long time ago when setting up Legacy of the Dragonborn but hadn't gotten around to playing it yet :P

      I went ahead and reverted to the save from about 10 mins before starting the quest, is it safe to update the mod now?

      Safe? yes, as in nothing harmful is going to happen to your savegame. But it is kinda problematic, the quest in 1.3 was marked to start at the beginning of the game even though it stays "latent" until you read the book. The thing is once it starts it fills aliases (pointers to stuff) and it doesn't seem recheck that if the mod is updated so you have 1.3 aliases on 2.0 quest and that can cause issues with the functionality of the quest, the death of the dragon not being detected for instance. Stuff that should be bypassable with the console (sqs, setstage, etc) if you know your way around it but that's not very immersive.

      The "solution" would have been to not make it startgame enabled in the first place (because there's actually no need at all) and so it would only "lock" into a version once you actually read the book not once you install it and load a savegame. But that's not something I can retroactively fix now.

      So, onto stuff you can do, I'd try uninstalling completely the mod, load, save, then reinstall new version with the hope that the old quest will be deleted, not the cleanest but might work.
      The cleanest but not ideal would be to play 1.3 quest in that savegame and update afterwards, you'd have to add with console the staff if you want it. AdditemMenu would come in handy.

      Thanks! I'll try the clean save way and see if that works. If not I should be able to work my way around things with console commands.

      Ok so it's definitely bugged. Worked fine up until I get the journal off of Aldantar's corpse, then it updates the objective to "defeat wyrm" and I hear a roar but the wyrm is nowhere to be seen. I was also a bit confused by this because in the old version the wyrm fight comes at the very end. Any suggestions or commands to use? Thanks again!

      Edit: I tried to spawn in the wyrm with console commands:
      Help wyrm
      Placeatme ab009b3e 1
      It didn't appear to do anything.

      That was after "clean-saving" it?

      And yeah, moved the wyrm fight because all the way at the end felt a bit anticlimatic, there was no reward for it.

      Yep after clean-saving. I'll just have to try to navigate console commands.

      The next troubleshooting step would be to check on another savegame, if it doesn't happen there then the save isn't "clean enough".

      As for console commands, spawning the wyrm is not going to work, it wouldn't detect his death properly either. You'd have to skip that stage I guess, use "sqs FFAOBMainQuest" to see the stages and then "setstage FFAOBMainQuest X" to progress.

      I made it through the full quest using console commands only issue I had other than the wyrm was that portals didn't spawn so I had to use the "cow" command to get from worldspace to worldspace but it worked out in the end. Again a great mod and now I have some finely crafted relics added to my arsenal/museum. Thanks for the active and willing support have a great day!

    Hmm, I don't suppose there's a way to make the swords disenchantable so I can put the effect on other weapons? My creation kit knowledge is limited and I wouldn't know how to go about doing this myself. I tried removing the MagicDisallowEnchanting keyword but that didn't work.

    EDIT : Nvm, that totally did work. I'm just too stupid to save correctly.

    Hi, questions, are the weapons besides goldbrand and eltonbrand lore based? sorry for ignorance i never played oblivion or morrowind. And is it compatible with requiem? Thanks bunches.

      1) yes, everything is lore based
      2) no idea, i dont use requiem, but most likely would require a patch, weapons usually do, right?

      my experience with this mod and requiem is, that it works fine for me. but in 1.9.4 or whatever the skyproc patch messed up elton brand's damage basically making it useless but so far in my game 2.0.1 the weapons are fine, however i have not played through the quest. that being said you had to fight some hard fights when questing and im worried about the npcs being either over powered or under powered. i would just try it and hope it works.

    Hi, anyone else having issues with CTD during the arena contest? I get to the orc and get CTD I've reloaded earlier saves and the same thing. Does anyone know the quest ID in case I can't get past this?

    Thanks

      FFAOBMainQuest if i recall correctly. The orc crashing? I don't remember similar reports. I'll write it down and check if the orc has anything particular when I can.

      Could also be not related to the orc itself but the quest's stages progressing, do you remember how many did you fight before the orc? Or which is your race? (your race is skipped so the index depends on that)

      Actually reloaded the mod and progressed normally. I have noted that NMM is not always loading everything or anything but saying it's loaded and active but if one goes to the data folder it's not there. This is an excellent mod the arena fights are really good, I have the soul rend shout and it really made a difference in the combat. Thanks for the response and the excellent mod. Specifically the choice of one or two handed swords.

    Is there any chance of non-enchanted versions or a way to disable the power attack flame? I really, really, really like Eltonbrand. However, I like being able to do a normal power attack without the burst of flame each time. Even when its soul charge runs out, it still unleashes it.

      Not something I'm going to do and release. If you wish to do it yourself, removing the enchantment is trivial in tes5edit: tuto

    It seems that Legacy of the Dragonborn has it's own Goldbrand and Eltonbrand. Can this mod coexist with the Legacy? I rly like the visuals in this version of the weapon :)

      Yeah, it can coexist. Items don't conflict by name, you'd just have duplicity and can use whichever you prefer. Do check on legacy's patch central if there's support for 2.1 so you have everything integrated in the museum and such for extra consistency, I'm not up to date on that matter.

    I was having problems with my skyrim where it kept crashing. I went through and disabled each mod one by one to figure out which ones were problematic, and this one was one of them, which was unfortunate because I thought it was really cool. Any suggestions on what I should do? I tried running it just by itself and it didn't work also.
