Won't mention house
Has anyone found a way to fix the bug? I'd really like to buy this home. 22.214.171.124 22:08, 20 November 2011 (UTC)Dirt
- Is this "bug" actually a bug at all? It just takes a while to get the right to buy a house in Markath, but as far as I can see, that is intentional. The jarl has little love for "sellswords", as he says when you first meet him, and as such, you're simply not allowed property in his city until he trusts you - which he does after retrieving his father's shield. You don't get that quest until reaching level 20. If you're lower level, and you haven't returned the shield, then yes, Raerek will stick to meaningless, non-house-related comments. --FoaT 13:35, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
 "Raerek wont talk to me!?"
I had this issue, I needed to blackmail him for the Stormcloak quest. Looks like a lot of people had the issue, or something similar with this NPC. Not many answers however, most people just post how to do the quest ( the quest is a little difficult to do , but I honestly thing it was the bug that was causing most of the troubles, its really not that hard to figure out what to do), or say they had no problems.
Anyway, I solved it by becoming a Jarl in the city.
I had already visited the Stormcloak quest giver 3 times, and he kept telling me to go back and get evidence, wich I actually had on me the 2nd and 3rd time I spoke to him, but the quest wouldnt update and move the quest marker to Markath. After becoming a Jarl and speaking to him a 4th time, the quest marker finally updated and I was able to blackmail Raerek.
So my hint/suggestion to anybody stuck here is this : Keep returning to the wherever the quest marker tells you to go, and ask again what you need to do, and hope the quest triggers the next step. You are not able to talk to Raerek about the Talos amulet with out the quest update.
I was however able to buy my new home before the 4th visit to try the Stormclak quest-giver again. He is just a buggy old man... I might kill him in his sleep now that I am done with him... — Unsigned comment by 126.96.36.199 (talk) at 13:58 on 1 December 2011
 Option to Buy Vlindrell Hall doesn't Disappear
I'm experiencing a rather reverse of a bug. Particularly the option to buy Vlindrel Hall. Apparently, what I experience is the option not disappearing even if I already bought all the possible upgrades. Is there like a fix for this because this annoys me everytime I have to talk to him for bounty quests. --188.8.131.52 09:59, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
