Weird bug[edit]

I've found a very strange bug with this quest. After giving Marise the 5 Ice Wraith Teeth and being rewarded (I got the usual tome & breast reward and her disposition improved to friend) I got a miscellaneous target of Find 0/5 Ice Wraith Teeth for Marise added back to my quest log. I just looted some teeth right now, and the counter is still at 0. So it looks like I'll have that target there permanently. --Morrolan (talk) 16:54, 22 February 2013 (GMT)

Can confirm that I also have this bug, on the 360. Possibly to do with the latest update, or having Dragonborn installed, as I haven't experienced the same issue on a Dawnguard/vanilla playthrough. Will see if there's any way to fix it in-game. Threepwood87 (talk) 16:03, 25 February 2013 (GMT)
Killing Marise does nothing to affect the target in your journal - it does not cause it to fail. Threepwood87 (talk) 22:22, 26 February 2013 (GMT)
Yeah, I'm also on 360 with all DLCs installed. I think this is the first time since installing Dragonborn that I've done this quest as well. --Morrolan (talk) 21:21, 27 February 2013 (GMT)
Playing on a 360 also, I only have Hearthfire and Dawnguard though. This is the first time I've done this quest since installing either.Barenjager (talk) 02:18, 3 April 2013 (GMT)
Can confirm the very same bug has happened to me. I'm on the Xbox. -- 20:27, 1 August 2013 (GMT)

() I've added this to the page as a confirmed bug, since it has happened to several different players without unofficial mods. Since I have not experienced it myself, I based my wording off of this discussion, so please feel free to adjust the wording for clarity and/or accuracy if needed. — ABCface 20:34, 1 August 2013 (GMT)

Same thing happened to me on the Xbox. Did some testing and found that it only happens when you get more than five ice wraith teeth after the quest is given. If you get exactly five, the bug doesn't occur. Citanes26 (talk) 21:28, 22 October 2013 (GMT)
So you're saying that if you get more than five ice wraith teeth while the quest is active, this bug will occur? Just clarifying that you mean this happens while the quest is active, and not after it's turned in. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 21:38, 22 October 2013 (GMT)
Looks like I posted too soon, as the bug happened again. After reloading the autosave at the Riften gate, I tried talking to her again without any quests or miscellaneous objectives highlighted on the quest list. That worked.Citanes26 (talk) 22:14, 22 October 2013 (GMT)


Having completed this quest dozens of times (I usually play without using gold), I don't think the spell tome she gives me has ever been anything besides Stoneflesh or Magelight. Can someone determine whether the script limits it to just an Alteration spell? 20:55, 14 August 2013 (GMT)
