I have a quest from the Thieves Guild. I must investigate his house, getting passed the guard named Vald. I did a small quest to get him to move. I went to his location and found his body on the floor outside. How to I get him back to open the barred door to the house?

  • did you kill him?

  • His body should have the key, shouldn't it?

If his body hasn't disappeared, he should have the key on him.

But there are other ways to do it even if that doesn't work. On the back of the house there is a lever you can hit with an arrow that will cause a ramp to the top story to unfold. The door up there just has an expert lock.

There's a YouTube video demonstrating both of the above (warning: the house's owner is a spoiler).

  • ok nvm bout this, I used Whirlwind sprint on the roof of another house to get to the high door on mercers house, but ty anyway.
