The reward, the Blade of the Rift, is a random, leveled, enchanted weapon. Despite its name, it can be nearly any weapon, including a non-bladed weapon like a Mace. There is a 50% chance that it will be one-handed and a 50% chance that it will be two-handed.

[edit] Notes

  • Unlike every other Thane quest, the "Assist the people of <Hold>" part must be completed before the Jarl will make you the offer, and is not tracked in the journal. A new quest "Speak to the Jarl of Riften" will appear under miscellaneous when you have assisted enough people.
  • Helping Hand and The Raid are required tasks to complete before becoming named Thane of Riften or getting the speech option to buy a house.

[edit] Bugs

  • "The Blade of the Rift" is never actually given as a reward: instead, you will receive a generic un-renamed enchanted weapon.
  • The reward you receive is generated randomly at the beginning of the game, so will always be iron.
  • Visiting Honeyside for the first time before becoming named Thane of Riften may prevent you from ever being able to be named Thane of Riften. After purchasing the house, immediately speak with the Jarl to avoid this bug.
  • It is possible that the dialog with the Jarl will not start, no matter how many people you've helped.
    • Pc22.png At the console, enter setstage FreeformRiftenThane 10. The quest should progress normally from there.
  • Sometimes the "Speak to the Jarl of Riften" step gets stuck in the miscellaneous section of the journal. ?
    • Pc22.png At the console, enter setstage FreeformRiftenThane 10, and then setobjectivecompleted FreeformRiftenThane 10 1.
