What do you think is the hardest quest in the game?

#1 Posted by casualterror (122 posts) -

In my opinion is the on dark brotherhood quest where you have to sneak through the sewers back to your old prison cell and kill the dark elf across the way. It's hard by the fact that it's impossible to get through without alerting the guards. Does anyone else have that problem with that quest?

The hardest quest in this game is obvious......."The Cure for Vampirism"

#3 Posted by toxicEnchiliada (330 posts) -

The cure for Vampirism hardest becasue you can't travel during daylight and that quest you can kill the guards but the reward will be less

The one quest during the quest for the fighter guild the goblin cave one where you have to give the 3 dudes their weapons but its only hard when your a very high level those dudes will rush forward and die very very very very very very very quickly if your too high a lvl.

I had it easy I guess, invisibility spells and such.
Hmm, does the Shivering Isles expansion count? Because if so, then the part where you have to keep using the feldew in the cave was the hardest for me. I got lost like 10 times. Quite frustrating.

I hated that feldew quest <_<
But yeah I also agree, that DB quest didn't give me too much trouble.

That quest was very annoying especially if you don't have good sneak, just like my Mage Crusader didn't at the time.

The hardest quest is none of them unless you create a custom character with major skills of speechcraft mercantile, hand to hand, and a bunch of other nonsense non combat or magic based skills.

i found the hardest one was the mages guild quest where the bruma's mage guild gets taken over, i died countless times for some reason, al the wraiths

Oblivion? Hard? What?

#11 Posted by SSbabel (1141 posts) -

Cant remeber what the name of the quest was but its the one where u hava to steal one of the Darkon volumes, well i think thats the name.

#12 Posted by crunchUK (5963 posts) -

if you turn the difficulty bar up i think you'll find the level where all those oblivion gates pop up in the imperial city the hardest. the coolest level ever was battle for bruma

The last one for the Fighter's Guild where you have to go and smash that machine absolutely ruined my game because I did it and when I came back, I was told i'd been thrown out of the Guild for killing a guild member even though I have no recollection of killing anyone in the guild while there.

im not that far into the game, but I foung that quest easy. Not because im amazing at sneaking, but because i just jumped over all the guards heads and killed the dude and ran away. It's not too hard.

None of them? I don't know...I just go all invisible, sneak and attack from behind with a big-ass sword. I don't think I had any problems with any quests.

This mission is definitely contingent on your sneak rating.  I had amped my character's sneaking up long before even starting guild work, so I flew through this mission.

I would also agree that, difficulty bar maxed, the final battle at the Imperial City is likely the most difficult.  I felt like the enemies bypassed all of the NPC's just to rush my ass. 

Also, I'm playing through Shivering Isles at the moment, and I feel that has some pretty stiff challenge to it.

Cure for vampirism and the one where you had to close the oblivion gate in like 3 mins.

#21 Posted by Thunder (390 posts) -

There was one quest in each guild that was really hard in my opinion. The one in the mages guild that had all those skeletons you had to fight and the house was on fire and the one in the fighters guild where you had to kill those 3 guys in the cave

#22 Posted by Lemegeton (780 posts) -

trying to do some of the Dark Brotherhood quests without being seen is hella hard.

#23 Posted by atejas (3057 posts) -

Any guild quests when your character is above level 35

#24 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

I didn't find any quest in the game hard, but that could be because it's easy to exploit the system. Know your summons and know invisibility...makes everything a breeze.

Ya thats one of the harder quests i remember too... also some of the oblivion gates were hard but fun.... man i mis that game but my my guy was deleted some how ;.(

#29 Posted by Jimeee (20 posts) -

The hardest fight by far was against my dark clone in Shivering Isles - he was tough as hell and was using all my summon demora spells against me! I was about Lv 28 warrior when I did this quest so you can imagine how many HP he had.

Definitely Cure for Vampirism, it took far too long!

#31 Posted by HODGEY3000 (344 posts) -

the vampire cure was a bitch
#32 Posted by XenoNick (1390 posts) -

Stealing the Elder Scroll for the teives guild was hard for me. Didn't have anything to cause invisibilty. Was constantly saving whenever i passed a guard without being seen.
