  • I'm in the middle of the quest. Just after retrieving the Ebony Blade it says that the quest is complete. She told me I have to kill someone else to restore the blade but it hasn't given me a quest to. I am very confused as to what to do. I have restarted the Xbox, restarted the game, loaded multiple saves at different points in time, ext. Nothing seems to be working and i really want the sword, please help.

    • I just completed this quest, and I believe that the dialogue is simply to let you know that you can power up the blade by killing those who like you. More information can be found here:

      and here:

      The relevant part says:

      Mephala now says the Ebony Blade does not match its legendary description, and has fallen to a lesser form due to its aging without use. In order to restore its former strength, it must taste the "blood of deceit". For the blade to do this, the Dragonborn must kill someone who trusts them: a person for whom a quest was done, or a follower. This completes the quest, although the blade still needs "charging."
