finish quest blindsighted
i cannot finish the quest blindsighted, i have killed mercer, got the eyes of the falmer bla bla bla... and now i am at the regged flagon and trying to turn in the left eye of the falmer and the bust of gray fox.
but this does not work. delvin just sits there and i am not able to talk to him. he just says that people are talking about the guild again and that he has a special job.... but when i press a to really talk to him nothing happens.
can anyone please help me? i dont want to do this whole quest again.
if you have a solution that involves the command console, pls describe it step by step, i am completely new to this.


thx is advance

ps: both items are marked as quest items.

Seem to remember having a similar problem myself on a previous play-through. The Thieves Guild quests are brimming with glitches & this is probably the worst offender of the lot in terms of just how many ways it can break.

When you give Delvin the bust he's SUPPOSED to say "Must have come from Mercer's place. He'd admired the Gray Fox for some time. Sure, I'll buy it from you... here you are."

Did you do anything "off-topic" while embarked on the quest? Leaving a cell you weren't supposed to perhaps? Talking to one of the quest characters while they were busy or executing an AI package?
And did you notice any other bugs, like Karliah, Delvin or Mercer appearing, disappearing or teleporting during the quest? Seems those are the most common ones.

Here's a UESP Wiki on the quest "Litany of Larceny"... scroll down to the "Bugs" section & see if what they describe fits your game.

If you haven't already got the latest patches then you might need to reload to before you did the quest, install the patches, then play it through again.

Good luck finding a fix. If I can help more I will.

Did you talk to Karliah in Bronze Water Cave? (exiting Irkngtand statue room)
And did you loot skeleton key from Mercers corpse?
This should start the next quest - Darkness returns.

Litany of larceny...its always been bugged for me if I turn in the items too soon.
Read this: http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:The_Litany_of_Larceny#Bugs

(I think best to load a save from before you picked up the eye, because of both quests, after you picked up the eye LIL becomes uncompleteable, and you were also supposed to talk to Karliah shortly after....maybe others have better soulutions though)

If Delvin (or any NPC is being silly) try quicksaving, kill them and then quickload. Apparently as I understand it makes them reset or something, if it doesnt work at least you get out a little frustration :p

I solved it. The problem was: I activated one of delvin's "special jobs" before I started this mission. So I just finished this mission (in whiterun for the battle borns) and after that everything was ok.
Skyrim is buggy even after some of the unofficial patches, but I'll be darn if I will stop playing because of them. Skyrim is my home now.

Was about to suggest as much, but great your game is okay and you can continue.
