- Retrieve the item from the business in the city
- Return the item to Vex
These quests are quests given to the Dragonborn by Vex in The Ragged Flagon as extra work for the Thieves Guild. The purpose of a heist job is to steal a certain item from various places around Skyrim. These are side quests and do not play a role in successful completion of the main Thieves Guild line of quests. They can, however, play a part in building the Guild, unlocking city influence quests, and becoming Guildmaster of the Thieves Guild.
