Skyrim talk:Farengar Secret-Fire
 Unnecessary Information
I'm not sure we need "Also if you steal from him he will eventually send 3 thugs after you that have 100 gold each on them." A lot of characters will send hired thugs after you if you steal and are not caught. The gold on their person is randomly generated. So unless this event is somehow special to this character, this needs to go. Kaisar Dragon 23:21, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
- Then delete it. That's how a wiki works. If someone finds it necessary to be there, they will add it again. 22.214.171.124 01:24, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
- If it's a common occurrence in the game, then it needs to be mentioned in the Crime & Punishments area of the wiki. I've only seen this NPC do it, so far, and I've stolen more than a thousand items in game from merchants/etc without being spotted. — Unsigned comment by 126.96.36.199 (talk) at 02:21 on 12 December 2011
 He may be just novice wizard
I just spoke with him with completed Collage of Winterhold questline and I said to him something like you don't want to walk into your own Shock Rune and he said I never even used one. It looks like he isn't some good mage.--188.8.131.52 00:43, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
- Not really. I use runes of other elements of Magic (Fire especially) and this doesn't make me novice because I don't use Shock Rune. Anyways, as Farengar's title amplies, he probably is a Fire Mage and not an Electric Mage and is possible that he uses Fire Runes instead. --SilentResident 02:05, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
- This might be just me, but I took that line to mean that he didn't cast that spell in the area such that he could have stepped on it.--184.108.40.206 00:39, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
 Inherited money
I accidentally killed Farnegar secret-fire and 1 hour later I received a note from a courier with 100 gold saying I inherited that money when he died. wtf? — Unsigned comment by 220.127.116.11 (talk) at 13:58 on January 2, 2012
- Sure, "accidentally". Stick to that story. Anyways, sometimes characters who like you will leave you money if and when they die. Minor Edits 21:09, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
Can anyone confirm other NPCS that hire thugs when you were not detected stealing things?
In my game he had 3 fairly powerful goons (full plate armor and enchanted weapons and hard hitting, I am level 20 and they probably would have killed me if all 3 had hit me at once).
The thugs had a note that said to teach me a lesson but not kill me. I do not think they would have let me live, however.
Farengar sided with his thugs against the guards, who protected me from the assault, so the guards killed him. I think that would confirm that he is not very skilled as well, he did not put up much of a fight. — Unsigned comment by 18.104.22.168 (talk) at 13:46 on 11 January 2012
 Text not tied to quest progress
He keeps suggesting to me "If you've got the aptitude, you might join the Mages College in Winterhold" even though I've recently become their Arch-Mage. Other NPCs do address me as archmage correctly. Does this qualify as a bug then? ;-) WooShell 21:57, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
- He does that to me as well. I don't know if I'd cal it a bug, though. More of an oversight, if anything. 22.214.171.124 06:11, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
 Anyone else heard this?
After leveling Enchanting to 100 and picking the Extra Effect perk, I enchanted some bow with Absorb Health and Paralyze effects. Then he said that he doubts anyone in Skyrim could weave better enchantment. I wonder if that dialogue line is exclusive to Farengar, or other people who give Enchanting tutorial (if there are any) or court mages say that. — Unsigned comment by 126.96.36.199 (talk) at 18:25 on 23 March 2012
- I've heard that line of dialogue for more generic enchantments (for example, while enchanting 50 iron daggers), but I was at Enchanting level 100, so I don't know. • JATalk 07:48, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
In two instances with different characters, I received a Cure Poison potion from this guy as a "token of friendship". I might have added it in notes, but I don't know the conditions upon which he gives you something (after which quest, whether the gift varies), or the exact dialogue he uses when he does this. 188.8.131.52 06:11, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
