  • So I didn't get the quest until a while ago, but I had somehow already bought Hjerim and was living in it. I have had the Strange Amulet since I bought the place, a year ago or a bit less. I bought the decoration "Clean up that murderer's mess" and with the journals and stuff about the butcher I knew I had missed something. Anyway I never had the dialogue option with Calixto about the Amulet, and it's still the Strange Amulet, it hasn't changed like it's supposed to and I in can't drop it, it's still a quest item though I finished the quest. Also I was super confused when this guy was in my key-locked house and I had to kill him. Is this the most screwed-up bug ever?

    • Theres around a hundred threads about Blood on the Ice not working in various ways its a ridiculously buggy quest. If you do want to do the quest i'd say do it as soon as possible (defiantly before buying the house) to avoid some of the bugs theres no real requirements to get the quest you just have to enter Windhelm four times basically and the Necromancer Amulet isn't a leveled item (i don't think) so won't be weaker if you get it early.

    • I just completed this quest. I finished the Civil War with the Imperials winning the war. So I go back to Windhelm and talk to the new Jarl. I am able to buy the house and start the quest. Instead of killing Calisto in the marketplace area I kill him in my house. So after the quest is over I get it furnished and the murder scene cleaned up. Except they don't remove his body. The way I got rid of his body is to use Mark for Delete and type in his ID code. Leave the house and re enter the house and his body will be gone.

    • With this house I have an added basement through a mod. Which I am wondering if it may be the reason why even through I am paying for a child's room it is not adding it to the house.

    • Maybe you should not have joined the imperial legion, eh? The stormcloaks don't create bugs like these.

    • I have not been able to purchase the house before completing the blood on theice quest. That is a bug in its self.

      You aren't supposed to purchase the house before completing blood on ice, it is NOT a bug

    • when I did this quest I got it started after I purchased the house and got the key. I was not able to furnish the house until the quest was completed.

    • I was calling the fact that he bought the house before the quest was completed a bug not mine not being able to buy the house

    • As the quest walkthough says you need a copy of the Beware the Butcher flyer to get the dialog from her (and if you have one try dropping and picking it up), but you might be able to just go to Jorleif and report Wuunferth as the killer or talk to the mage to contine on to the next part of the quest. It is very buggy though.

    • I am going through this quest for this quest for the 3rd time, this time on pc. I have not experienced before the bugs that I am going through this time around. For the first time I have found the amulet and I sold it to Calisto. Now there are quest markers over both Jorlief and Viola but I can't initiate dialog ref the butcher with either one. I will try dropping the pamphlet in front of Viola & see how that works.
