Side Quests Knotwork

Side quests are standard-length quests that are not part of a quest line and are not Daedric quests. Each side quest is listed separately in your quest journal. They are not subcategorized like miscellaneous quests. Also unlike miscellaneous quests, side quests are logged in your journal after completion. Side quests can be identified by the side quests knotwork (pictured at left) displayed next to the quest title in your journal and on each quest's page on this wiki.

Completing each of these quests generally increases by one the "Side Quests Completed" statistic in the General Stats section of the main in-game menu, and also counts towards the Sideways achievement. See this article's achievements section, below, for details.

The side quests are listed below based on the location where they are normally started.

Dungeon Quests[edit]

These quests only start once you approach or enter the associated dungeon. Only dungeon quests that are counted as side quests are listed here. The Dungeon Quests article provides a list of all dungeon quests, including both the below side quests and several additional miscellaneous quests.



One achievement is obtained by completing side quests:

  • SR-achievement-Sideways.png Sideways (20 points/Bronze) — Complete 10 side quests
    • Completing any 10 of 33 qualifying side quests will unlock this achievement. In general, any full quest that uses the side quest knotwork in your quest log counts towards the achievement, but there are a few unusual cases:
    • In most cases where a quest has two possible conclusions, either ending will qualify towards the achievement. Exceptions include The Heart of Dibella and A Scroll For Anska. See the individual quest pages for details.
    • You can track your progress towards the achievement using the "Side Quests Completed" statistic on the General Stats log page.
