There is a quest in Windhelm where you have to find a white phial for the alchemist.
This quest is not a problem, after many days, you get a letter from him again to meet him at his shop.
Its this next part that is the problem.
He tells you he wishes to repair the phial, and needs you to collect some ingredients, Getting the Unmelting snow and powdered mammoth tusk was fairly easy, but there is a horrible glitch which has stopped me in my tracks for the third and final ingredient.
Its a Forsworn briar heart, needed to be taken off a certain person, so getting any briar heart will not suffice.
Now the person i need to get it from has been killed already earlier doing the red eagle quests, and if that weren't bad enough, he has no briar heart on his person, yet its still telling me that i must pick one off this person.
This is on the Xbox, so console commands cannot be used, Has anyone come across this also? and if so, have you got around it? does anyone have any info to help.
I have looked on the internet for solutions but there is not much to help.
EDIT: Quest works now.
This glitch seems to have been solved, a recent update must have found a way round this, the briar hearts could be eaten and then once all gone, they were not quest related, finally. and the quest could be completed too, as before he wouldnt accept your ingrediants, however now he does. thanks
