Upgrading the Spire[edit | edit source]

Just inside the entrance, there is a hand pedestal holding the book Frostcrag Spire Memoirs. When read, it reveals that Aurelinwae at the Mystic Emporium in the Market District sells furniture for the Spire.

Quests[edit | edit source]

Frostcrag Spire[edit | edit source]

According to a deed that's been delivered to me, I've inherited a property called Frostcrag Spire from a long-lost relative. I've marked its location on my map. At the next opportunity, I should make my way out there and inspect my new acquisition.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

This section contains bugs related to Wizard's Tower. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  ,  NX  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  • There are reports of a particular glitch/bug that makes the atronach's body freeze on spot after its death. This cannot be fixed, but means no harm; one can still summon another one.
  •  PC   360   This DLC appears to conflict with the Fighter's Stronghold plug-in. The Mystic Emporium remains permanently locked after it closes, which means that the only way to buy supplies for Frostcrag Spire is to pick the lock and break in.
    •  PC(Fix)   Picking the door lock then entering the shop turns it back to normal again until the next map change via fast travel and is not considered trespassing if done during opening hours.
    •  360(Fix)   A solution for this issue is to install the Wizard's Tower after the Fighter's Stronghold.
  •  360   It is possible to access a testing cell (TestBrumaHouseMid) containing the Mace of Doom and a room with a Sigil Stone which, when activated, adds more Sigil stones to the inventory whilst in the living quarters after deleting the Wizzard's Tower DLC files.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The PC version of this plug-in is no longer available on the Bethesda website, however, one can still acquire it as part of the The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year Edition Deluxe from Steam.
