    Glitch- quest target is already dead

    Trouble In skyrim - Kill the leader of the uttering hills camp
    Yeah , well the leader is already dead. I'm pretty sure I've waited 30 days for it to reset, haven't confirmed it yet though. I've cleared the dungeon so.

    If this quest stops me in the companions questline Ima bust someone cap in their ass! no but seriously both companions and thieves guild has bugged.

    Edit: I swear first Fifa 100% pure luck trophies and now this?! I'm so on the freakin edge right now... all the bugs just decreased this games rating from 8/10 to 7,5/10

    Did you kill him before you actually got the quest?

    my Skyrim book list this quest as givin by Farkas, & the objective is to kill the leader of (random location), than says both target & location are listed as random, & it says you only need to kill the leader for completion.

    Sooo...,did you in fact talk to Farkas & activate it?

    & how could you have already killed said target , if its not activated until speaking with Farkas, or like the book says ,its a leader of a "random" location?

    my book/guide could be wac but i hope it helps.
    I would try speaking to Farkas again(which you probably have)

    I completed the quest no problem returned the necklace to Torsten Cruel Sea and completed all the Thieves guild related trophies as this quest is part of them. It just shows up as not completed in my inventory of misc quests as uncompleted and on return the quest marker is there all other bandits are there but no leader.

    Thieves Guild quests? Are you sure? cuz ive got The Companions Radiant Quests, Initial wave:Trouble in Skyrim listed as that in the book, with no Trouble in Skyrim listed in Thieves Guild regular or radiant quests.

    saw your new post all good, maybe his location was the same as yours, the book says random,... so yea i dunno

    Yeah definitely its the Summerset Shadows one where they are the Rival Guild, there is a crossover between the locations and thats the problem I expect.

    well,yea Summerset Shadows is listed as the thieves guild quest,but not trouble in skyrim,thats listed as a random location,givin by the Companions Radiant Quests, if the game glitched out and gave him a location on the Companions quest line that is in fact meant for the Thieves Guild questline......well DAMN ,that is a bad glitch.

    I don't remember if I already killed him, but I probably did. I did do alittle dungeon hunting back in the pre 50 hours. and now I found the quest target, the leader of uttering hills camp is dead. He's lying on the floor naked. The quest arrow is pointing directly on is dead body.

    skyrim wiki said, attack the companions so they'll leave their'll be able to talk with. BUT NO they started attacking me even with my weapons sheated and my save is right after they've started attacking me and they don't seem to forget.

    You are having a bad run of luck, are you sure you arent wearing "The Amulet of Major Misfortune" especially with the Fifa Stuff too.

    Just completed the Companions quest and have the trophies, checked back and I had completed "Trouble in Skyrim" very early on where I cleared out Serpents Redoubt for my quest.

    Ya, having a bad run I guess. Luckily enough I had a gamesave halfway, so I managed the first part of thieves guild. So I've just poisoned the brewery, though the companions quest bugged again, I successfully avoided the old one but now I stumbled across a new bug. Will see if it solves...

    Are you goddamn kidding me?! Second run, I started with thieves guild and I have done some in companions but now I receive a quest to clear out uttering hills camp in the thieves guild, that's fucking stupid. Why would bethesda lead 2 quests to the same target... gonna try get both quests at the same time, let's see how it goes.

    Well I am now having a similar problem... Except my targets not dead... When I kill him and go to turn the quest in the second I enter any part of whiterun it says the quest is completed but without turning it in. Now I cant start any other missions cuz everyone says I am on one. Farkas will give me one but the person I am supposed to intimidate is a Jarl and she wont give me an option to... The fuck now?

    I had a similar problem with one of the Dragons. I received the quest after I had already killed it and it never respawned for me to complete the mission. Mine was only a side mission though, so I feel your pain on this one....You might need to reload an old save and redo the Companions quest line once you have finished the rest.
