Related Quest: Miscellaneous[edit]

I have "Go to Arivanya in Windhelm and pick up the item" as a Miscellaneous Quest entry. Unfortunately, she seems to have fallen victim to Calixto Corrium, aka The Butcher. I visited the Hall of the Dead, and found what I believe to be her casket, as it had a key to the Stables. Looted the whole thing, journal did not update to "Return 'X' to 'so-and-so' ". Poked around in her house by the stables, and could not find any interesting items there either.

I have no idea who gave me the quest, or what "the item" was supposed to be. (xbox, no console available) I know it's probably just a Radiant Quest Bug of little importance, but perhaps another user might have completed said Misc Quest, and be able to shed some light - and perhaps add that to the "Related Quests" section. • S1D3WYZ 00:37, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Might be the one to pick up an item to bring back to Winterhold for enchanting. -Vardis 01:26, 28 January 2012 (UTC)
The Sergius Turrianus wants you to pick-up an item from a client for enchanting, Enchanting Pick-Up quest? Possible, but a couple points of interest - that quest says "repeatable" on first line. When I visit Sergius, he does not have a dialog to start another run, but he also does not have any interactions that indicate he is waiting for me to return an item. That is just a radiant gold reward quest I can live with being glitched, as I've done several of those for him, and now have 500K+ gold. One thing I'm curious though: I did "Blood on the Ice" (and killed Calixto right before he struck a different NPC and saved her) fairly early, and did not start the optional go-fetch College Quests until much later after finishing the entire MG main line, and have returned several other items to him for gold... and if I remember correctly I saw a bunch of NPC's gathered around a dead body next to Candlehearth Hall on my first visit to Winterhold before I started "Blood on the Ice" (although I don't recall the name of the victim).
  • Would the game radiantly assign a pick-up to an already-dead NPC?
  • Can you/anybody confirm she is a radiant target for this quest? and then...
  • Should Enchanting Pick-Up be added to Arivanya's "Related Quests" section?
  • and/or Arivanya be listed in a to-be-created "Possible Targets" section on Enchanting Pick-Up's page? (see that quest's talk page, which also mentions a couple of other possible targets.)
Not trying to make Arivanya's talk page into the Quest talk page, just seemed to make sense to further this discussion • S1D3WYZ 11:30, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

quick question[edit]

It says on Ulundil's page that if he dies, Arivanya takes over the running of the stables. What happens if they both die? Because she almost always gets killed by the butcher in my playthroughs and one day Ulundil is certain to get killed by one of the many dragons that seem to attack me at the windhelm stables.

This quest given by Sergius Turrianus, Enchanting Pick-Up quest. So, i refer to the quest console code and you can solve this problem using command "setstage MGR10 20" without quote. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 05:06 on 18 November 2012 (UTC)
What happens if they both die? Does it mean you can no longer buy a horse from the Windhelm Stables? Not everyone can fix things using a console command. 23:32, 20 April 2014 (GMT)

Ounce of prevention[edit]

From the article: "However [her death] can be prevented by choosing to talk to Wuunferth the Unliving before Jorleif." Of course you also have to be faster than the killer, or she might end up dead anyhow. --◄mendel► (talk) 06:50, 15 February 2014 (GMT)

Blood on the Ice[edit]

Upon returning to Windhelm to begin the second phase of this quest, I anticipated a different victim than Arivanya, as she had died several weeks prior during a vampire attack. Wrong - her already-looted corpse lay outside Candlehearth as the Butcher's newest victim despite the minor complication of having already been deceased. 18:43, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

This bug has been noted on the quest page, as well as the fix by USKP. It is because she is scripted to be the the victim at this point so she is dragged from wherever she is, be that the stables or six feet under. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 18:53, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
