  • If anyone has figured out how to make the mannequins in the homesteads STOP duplicating armor, I would be forever in your debt. I just want to use the damn things for display, and I can't change their armor no matter what I do.

    • Hmm. You could try searching around the Wiki or Google for a fix, but as far as I know there isn't one.

        Loading editor
    • I saw on this Wiki that they can't duplicate enchanted armor, so I tried enchanting what it had and giving it back, but it just duplicated an unenchanted version...

    • Aha! I found something. Here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptYY2E83UPA

      For everyone else, this worked for me:

      1. Take all duplicated armor off of mannequin. Leave the area and come back (I went in and out of the cellar for this).
      2. Add a full set of unique enchanted armor (Thieves Guild, Nightingale, Shrouded Armor, etc.) and shield (such as Targe of the Blooded), leaving the duplicated armor in the mannequin's inventory. Enchanted gear should appear on the mannequin over top of the duplicated gear. Leave the area and come back.
      3. The old duplicated gear should be on top again. Take everything out of the mannequin's inventory. Without leaving the mannequin inventory screen, add all the duplicated stuff and then all the enchanted armor IN THAT ORDER. The enchanted gear should be visible on the mannequin before leaving. Leave the area and come back.
      4. The enchanted gear should still be on top. Take everything out of the mannequin's inventory. Go in and out of the inventory several times for good measure, then leave the area and go back.
      5. Mannequin should now be naked and have nothing in the inventory. Supposedly it's done duplicating armor now.

      I realize I've answered my own question but I'll leave this in case anyone else wanted this bug fix.

    • so will this glitch duplicate armors like the arch-mages robes?

        Loading editor
    • I haven't tried, but theoretically not. It doesn't like to duplicate unique enchanted items. That's why the fix I explained above said to use a unique enchanted set of armor such as the Thieves Guild armor, Nightingale armor, or Shrouded Armor, to break the duplication chain.

      I gave a mannequin custom enchanted armor (just some bogus enchantments on a set of Orcish armor), and the armor it duplicated was an unenchanted version. Although what's interesting is that one of my mannequins duplicated Ahzidal's armor set (Dragonborn), including one of the rings, six times. So maybe some enchanted items do duplicate, but that set isn't really "unique" since it's just enchanted ancient Nord armor.

    • Huh, okay! I was just going by what I've heard. I had shrouded armor on a mannequin that has duplicated armor before, and it never duplicated. I guess the glitch works differently for different people.

      Either way, using unique enchanted armor did work to break the duplication chain for me. Since I already have so much junk piled up that I don't even want to go through the effort of carrying and selling it all, I was never really interested in duplicating armor. I guess I'm in the minority there, haha.

    • I have actually found that my manni's will not dupe Upgraded/smithed armor so this glitch does seem ...well..Glitched. LOL

        Loading editor
    • I too have duplicated just about every unique armor piece in the game with this glitch, and enchanted armor....I think a lot of people are getting confused (myself included) as to what means, but in my experience, if you put some enchanted Dragonscale Armor on a mannequinn, it will just clone you a regular set, and it will always be new or base value (i.e. not flawless or legendary), despite what the original set is.

      Lately I'm obsessed with getting Spellbreaker and I swear I did it last week but the saves got screwed up (my cloud storage was maxed out). Or...I was just dreaming : )

      Anyone use the Hearthfire glitch to clone Spellbreaker?

    • Hey, maybe perhaps I want to use the mannequins for DISPLAY, you know, their intended purpose. I already have over 200,000 septims that I don't even know how to spend, and a chest full of junk I don't even have the time to sell.

      How dare I have built an armory to display all the things I've collected over my many adventures.

      Since somebody brought this thread up again, I have since been able to duplicate a unique shield (Shield of Ysgramor). So that does happen, if that user is still wondering. Don't know about Spellbreaker specifically.

    • Worse yet, sometimes they eat up your armour instead of slotting it in their inventory. Seems to have to do with it temporarily storing its contents somewhere and not loading the data properly.

      Yeah, for some reason I've had helmets not appear on certain mannequins in my armory. I have no idea why, but it's kind of really annoying :/

      I use the manneguin in the Dawnstar sanctuary.  I didn't do the DB quests until after I got patched up, and I've never had it dupe.  I change up his look every few visits to the Night Mother, so i've put that thing in most of the guard's gear, imperial gear, theives guild armor, DB armor, and now the Emperor's robes (To remind myself of what I'm capable of)

    • I've got a mannequin in Severin Manor that at first had the enchanted chitin armor the original owner of the house wore. Later, I put Miraak's mask, gloves, robe, and boots on it, but left the chitin armor in the inventory. Now it won't stop duplicating the chitin armor and wearing it instead of Miraak's robe. The weird thing here is that it is duplicating something that it does not have. I take the suit of chitin armor away from it and store it somewhere else, leaving the mannequin with ONLY Miraak's things, and sooner or later, it's back to the same state, wearing another copy of the chitin armor that it has conjured out of nowhere. I admit Miraak had ghastly taste in his dress, but this is getting a bit much.

    • The glitch actually does clone unique items.  I have three Nahkriin masks (one of the dragon priest masks) and 6 cicero clothes.  Also, thanks for the help because the Cicero's clothes were annoying and the masks made were useless to me.

    • It will duplicate unique items but not improved unique items. I ended up with 7 of the same dragon priest mask and when I improved one and used it in the unique set then it fixed the glitch. Can't complain though I traided the 6 others in for 20000+ gold.

    • It can duplicate unique enchanted stuff. My house in Morthal has an armory, and I left my Ancient Shrouded set on one of the mannequins for some time. Pulled the armor out of retirement and I noticed I had 2 of the body armor. Then it just happened to me again. (Which brought me to this page, because I immediately Googled it.) I went to the Dawnstar Sanctuary, and went into the Listener's bedroom, and the mannequin had all BUT the Shrouded body armor (regular starter set, not Ancient this time.)

        Loading editor
    • Very similar thing happened to me a long time ago. I had a mannequin in Heljarchen Hall wear the Ancient Shrouded Armour set. At some point later in my game, I was able to obtain Ancient Nordic Armour for the first time, so after wearing for a while I put it on the same mannequin and removed the Ancient shrouded armor. The first bug was that the Ancient Nord Helmet didn't even show up, and after that, JUST the Ancient Shrouded Cowl would respawn on the head upon every re-entry of the house, leaving a severely ugly combo and a collection of useless Ancient SHrouded Cowls. I saw a fix in this discussion I think I might try as the mannequin STILL remains in this state TO THIS DAY.

    • My mannequins in Heljarchen Hall are terrible about duplicating armor.  My second floor mannequin has duplicated at least 22 different copies of 'Ahzidal's Boots of Waterwalking' and 'Ahzidal's Armor of Retribution'.  However it won't duplicate Ahzidal's Helmet or Gauntlets.  I guess it's kind of cool from a certain point of view.  I need to see if I can get a duplicate of 'Targge of the Blooded'.

    • Put an enchanted Master Robes of [whatever magic] on the upstairs mannequin in Morthal just to get it out my inventory for a 'house-cleaning.'  Managed to get 4 or 5 duplicates of it and they were worth something like 5K apiece retail (of course, I only get wholesale from the merchants, but still...,)  I'm not complaining. I did get bugged by the one in the Pale that kept reproducing Vaermina robes, which aren't nearly as valuable; I usually use them as sleepware.

      Funny thing about my Targe of the Blooded. Put in on the shield rack next the to cellar ladder, and it slowly was absorbed by the wall. Could not retrieve it once the process started.

    • If you don't mind using console commands I found a permanent solution for myself:

      Enter the house so that the mannequin is wearing the items it keeps duplicating, go in console command and click on the mannequin, type "inv", type "removeitem" followed the the equipped items baseID [space] followed by "1" and hit enter (same steps on each items), this should permanently remove them from the mannequin. Drop the items you want on the floor and get their baseID, go back to the mannequin then type "equipitem" followed by the baseID of the item on the floor (enchanted custom armor should have their own baseID) [space] "1" and hit enter. That should permanently equip the item on the mannequin. Then I dropped all the dozens of duplicated items on the floor, click them in console command, typed "markfordelete" and hit Enter (did that for all the items individually) then saved the game and restarted.

      I tried some patches in nexusmods and youtube videos and they didn't work for me... Actually the mods in nexusmod messed up my mannequins. Then I remembered I had Lydia wear the dragon plate armor I made for her permanently this way and tried that and VOILA! Problem solved.
