Oblivion:Quest Items

The UESPWiki – Your source for The Elder Scrolls since 1995
Jump to: navigation, search

Quest items are items needed to complete a specific quest; usually they have to be given up when the quest has been completed although some may be kept as a reward or part of a reward. A Quest Item cannot be dropped or sold; it will remain in your inventory till a quest removes it for you. Some Quest Items will remain in your inventory forever unless you remove them through the console. In appearance they are usually identical to the generic items they are based on. They are only distinguished from generic items by their name, the fact that they will not stack in your inventory with generic items, or because they have an enchantment. This list does not include items given as rewards for completing a quest, although some items may be kept as rewards after some quests. Quest rewards are listed on the related quest page at the top.

For Quest Items introduced by the Shivering Isles expansion pack, see this page.
