Can you revisit this place after you have finished The Ultimate Heist?

yes you can, I checked last night. I'm not sure if you can still get into the palace guard quarters though. I'll check that out at some point. Bonsai nine 06:35, 9 June 2008 (EDT)
No, you can't get into the Imperial Guard Quarters once you've finished the quest; I just checked. --Robin Hood (TalkE-mailContribs) 19:49, 16 June 2008 (EDT)
How does one get into the Battlemage's Chambers marked at M on the first map? I wandered around in that room, and the only thing I could find was an opening in the ceiling. Is this where you fall down at the end of the quest? -- 09:10, 9 April 2009 (EDT)

Should Be Listed IN A Places Category[edit]

This location description says it is an Ayleid Ruin but the OB editor names label the cells as sewers. Meanwhile it doesn't list in any of the Places categories. It should definitely be placed in one of the categories. --oldwest 22:29, 13 March 2008 (EDT)

Actually, it's listed in both Oblivion-Places and Oblivion-Places-Ayleid Ruins. –Eshetalk22:48, 13 March 2008 (EDT)

Iron Gate[edit]

(moved from Image talk:OB-ImpSewer-Catacombs.jpg)

where and how do you open the iron gate that is suppoosed to be opened remotely?? — Unsigned comment by (talk) on 21 January 2009

There's a switch on the ledge around the previous room - the one with the two Dark Welkynd Stones. –RpehTCE 03:14, 25 January 2009 (EST)

Safe Containers[edit]

Are there any safe containers in The Old Way? For example, the chests that contain Fire and Darkness and Aevar Stone-Singer? Itaav 16:02, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

Push Block in Z5[edit]

Does anyone know what the push block at the far end of Zone 5 does? It's right behind the Ayleid Reliquary. Pez 23:00, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

It toggles the gates around point N in Zone 4. Robin Hoodtalk 18:41, 18 August 2010 (UTC)


I just enter The North Tunnel, and I finish here. xD The Ultimate Heist: Steal an Elder Scroll for the Gray Fox, and for glory! Is quest ... I never seen the Gray Fox, and I don't want to be a stealer in game.. I started the quest, will be I the stealer ??? Thank you, and sorry for my fail English. (Sexydjole 23:09, 10 April 2011 (UTC))

It must be a glitch. A similar thing happens if you visit the Temple of the Ancestor Moths crypt. It has probably broken the Thieves Guild questline, but if you're confident that your character will never get to the later stages of the questline then it's safe to ignore it. (Just don't continue onward into the Old Way sewers, as you might get stuck.) Legoless 23:13, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
