The Black Star Quest
For those who have played it, have you found any differences or preferences in accepting either the Azura's Star from Azura versus The Black Star from Nelacar? I know it's a reusable Grand Soul Gem and a reusable Dark Soul Gem, I just want to know if how people's games have been affected by choosing one over the other.

If I remember the Azura priestess gets hostile if you side with Nelacar. I'm unsure if she attacks or just tells you to ♥♥♥♥ off though. Unsure what occurs with Nelacar although I suspect he probably just crticises your decision. I've always sided with Nelacar as I think the re-usable Black soul gem is more useful.

One or the other just tells you to ♥♥♥♥ off, they don't attack. Maybe you can't get the Oblivion Walker without the Black Star, but I don't touch that achievement, so no idea.

You can get it regardless of end choice to that quest.

I've chosen both sides, different games, and neither seems to affect the game in any way, the only thing I did notice were the comments from the guards if you side with Azura.

Azura's star is Daedric, the Black star isn't Daedric

Either counts towards the achievement. It's still a Daedric artifact due to being created by a Daedra.

Either counts. I got the achievement on the 360 and have always completed the quest with Nelacar.

The big difference is the Black Star acts like a reusable black soul gem, Azuras star will not capture killed people's souls like the Black Star does.

Azura was a great combat partner for me,..
besides that, the star really didn't make a big difference for me in game play,.
Never used the star, I didn't even know that is was reusable. silly me.

Nelacar does tell you it is re-usable when you first talk to him.

Personally I always prefer to side with Azura because I feel like there's more benefits to having her purify the Star. If you side with Nelacar, you just get the Black Star; siding with Azura nets you Azura's Star AND the Dunmer lady (I forget her name) who serves her as a follower. So although you may decide which star you'd like to have, going for Azura's Star seems to be the better option to select.

There are plenty of other followers. In the end though neither option is really better than the other.

True, you have a point; though siding with Azura is better in my opinion because you get more out of siding with her than with Nelacar.
