Talk to Vilkas to obtain this quest. This is one of 3 possible repeatable quests Vilkas will offer the player after reaching a certain point in the Companions quest line. The objective is completely randomized - it will ask the Dragonborn to retrieve a random weapon or item from a randomly chosen dungeon. If that dungeon has been recently cleared by the Dragonborn, the quest will spawn opposition inside the dungeon.
This section contains bugs related to Family Heirloom. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- Skjor can issue the quest before giving "The Silver Hand". Repeatedly causes the game to lock when returning the sword to Skjor for quest completion.
- Sometimes the quest marker will be located in an apparently random location (e.g. At a giant's camp, while the quest is at some cave) Once you get to the real quest location the quest marker is once again glitched, and the item that you need to find is nowhere to be found.
- Sometimes, the item is not in the target location, rendering the quest unable to be completed.
