 Quick Walkthrough
- Talk to Vex in The Ragged Flagon about heist jobs.
- Enter the targeted store and break into its strongbox.
- Return the item to Vex.
 Detailed Walkthrough
The item is a randomly-selected gem or unenchanted piece of jewelry (circlet, necklace, or ring); see Leveled Lists for full details. It is always found in the store's strongbox, which is protected with a leveled lock. The strongbox will also contain a random amount of gold (if you have not previously looted it), which can also be stolen to supplement your quest reward.
The quest can send you any one of 28 possible stores. You may be assigned the same location more than once.
You must not be caught and sent to jail while the quest is active, for any reason, otherwise you will fail the quest; you also cannot kill anyone living in the house. Once you have retrieve the item, return to Vex for a leveled gold reward.
- Taking all the items in the strongbox via the "take all" command also seems to update bedlam jobs, even if there is not 500 gold worth of items in the strongbox.
- If the stolen item has the same FormID as another item in your inventory, it is possible for the wrong item to be removed from the inventory upon quest completion. For example, if the quest object is a stolen emerald ring and you are also wearing an enchanted emerald ring, the enchanted ring may be removed instead of the stolen ring upon handing in the quest. You may also be stuck with stolen item that is marked as a "quest item", making all such items undroppable and unsellable (although, if you get arrested, it will be taken along with all other stolen items).
