Unable to finish totems quest bugEdit

I have picked up two statues but all I recieve in the way of quests now are 'Animal extermination', so I can't finish the statues of Hircene. Any remedies? 17:25, December 3, 2011 (UTC)

did you marry aela? because that is a cause as when i reloaded an old save where i didn't marry her, i got the totem quests easy. 00:52, December 4, 2011 (UTC)

Managed to finally get it, after 4 Animal exterminations and more, then going off for a few days and just not doing the companions quests the coming back and completing Purity with Farkas I recieved it from her. 05:50, December 4, 2011 (UTC)
I believe the gaining the totems quest may be tied to the amount of times you have used beast form. to test this I saved a game fast traveled to whiterun and talked to aela and she only offered me a extermination quest after I reloaded the save I used the ing of hircine and the wait command to transform a few times and then fast traveled and talked to aela again and at that point she offered me the last totem of hircine quest. So transforming back and forth a set amount of times may be a pre condition to receiving these quests. 09:50, December 21, 2011 (UTC)
Not likely, only used Beast Form twice before getting all the Totems. I had to do 2 extermination quests before the second totem retrieval, and 3 before the last one. I think when Aela asks is just random, and you happened to get lucky. LeatherNeck2382 (talk) 17:08, December 21, 2011 (UTC)
Does marring Aela prevent her from giving you the quest? Because I married her early in the game and she has only given me "animal extermination" many times.CouslandRogue (talk) 05:44, August 12, 2012 (UTC)
No, i married Aela and had this problem until i told her to move back to her house (jorvaskar) then i asked and i got the quest Widdy13 (talk) 06:54, October 12, 2012 (UTC)

Totems Of Hircine bug/odd behaviourEdit

During the final Totems Of Hircine quest (for myself the location was Brittleshin Pass) after Aela and I retrieved the final totem and exited the cave we encountered some enemies so I changed to Beast Form which caused Aela to attack me.  It was only after 5 mins. or so and moving beyond her range (i.e. when she no longer showed on my compass) did she stop attacking and re-joined me which allowed us both to return to the Underforge normally. 00:13, September 14, 2016 (UTC)
