After I completed the quest for the Thieves' Guild to deal with business at Goldenglow Estate, Brynjolf informed me that Maven Black-Briar wants to speak with me. But when I headed over to her place she had nothing to say to me except her usual stuff about how annoying I am and how important she is. I don't have a quest to talk to her either. What gives? Did she really want to talk to me or is Brynjolf just winding me up?

  • is the quest arrow point to maven? It may be you have to talk to Brynjolf for some more conversation before Maven speaks to you.

  • Brynjolf has nothing more to say to me. He just keeps asking me how it's going. I don't have a quest involving Maven or Brynjolf or the Thieves' Guild.

    hmm, sounds like a glitch then. Have you tried talking to Mercer?

Seems like it's a bug affecting other players: http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/elder-scrolls-v-skyrim/134891-thieves-guild-dampened-spirits-quest-bug.html

Anyone know where I can report bugs? I hope a patch fixes thiss

  • looks like your best bet, if you don't want to wait for the patch, is to find the quest id via the console and set the stage to something appropriate.

You can't take this quest if you have previously broken into the Honningbrew Meadery.


When I spoke to Maven for the next part of the quest chain, I spoke with her on the second floor of the inn. Try turning on your quest tracking only for that quest (clear the rest) and follow the arrows.

  • I don't have a quest, that's the problem.
