This quest can be obtained by talking to Vilkas. This is one of 3 possible repeatable quests Vilkas will offer 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, 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:
- 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). Upon getting to the real quest location the quest marker is once again glitched, and the item needed is nowhere to be found.
- Sometimes, the item is not in the target location, making the quest unable to be completed.
