Alright, I think a small disclaimer should be made about some of the stones having translucent textures, and so in game, you're more likely to just see a spider's web on top of another surface, for instance. You have to pay attention to the text that says "Pick up XXX" on the bottom of your screen. All the tiles I've found in Highwind were translucent, for instance.

aghit1- 44 is either directly to the right of the main gate, on top of a grave, or else in the ritzy district in an alley behind the house next to your mansion. I just found 44-46 in Highwind.

Danaleesen, Please help me, I saw that you had found all 50 of the stones. I need help finding the stones 2, 8, and 44. I hope you remember where you found them. These are eluding me and I have searched and searched. I just subscribed to this mod about a week ago and I enjoy it.
aghlt1 Jan 16 @ 11:44am 
OK I need help please. I found 47 of the Dragon stones. I need hints or locations for the stones 2, 8 and 44. I have searched the world over but have not found them. Please help me. # 8 i have no clue what city it is in. I know 2 is around Riften and 44 is around Windhelm. Please help me find them. Danaleesen Please help me, I saw that you had found all 50 of the stones.

OK I subscribed to this M, OD yesterday, I have found most of them but having diffucty with finding the stones , #'s 2, 8, 25, 26, 44, and 46. Can I get some help please. I have followed most of the hints that has been posted but have not found these. Please give better hints or a find item spell for the stones. I have been hunting these stones for over 12 hours now and still have not found them that I posted. Plus I would like to know why # had steal on it in the mages library. Thank you all for all the hints, Plus the hints for the rest of the stones.

All right, so that's it. I haven't found all the stones on any other City yet. In the other Citys I have found so far:

Morthal: 2
Windhelm: 2
Winterhold: 3
Riften: 4

Once again: It's a good Idea using the Telekinesis Spell in order to "scan" a vast area. You can detect objects by their name even on a far distance. This way I found some of those stones which I never ever would have found by just walking around searching stuff in close proximity.

Markarth (4 Dragonstones)

#31 Do I know you / 28003f1b
Outside Markarth. Main Entrance (facing the Gates: turn to the right and walk along the wall). At the end of the wall on a ledge indenting it.

#32 Orange ya glad I didn't say / 28003f1c
Outside Markarth. At a Mountain wall on the ground opposite the street which leads away from Markarth (Mining Camp is on the left at the same shore). This thing is practically invisible... use the telekinesis spell to spot it (or I guarantee you'll miss it).

#33 Purple Nurple / 28003f1d
Within Markarth. On top of one of the stone Pillars which supports the stone Bridge in front of the Waterfall and below the Smith.

#34 Green Tablet / 28003f1e
Within Markarth. On the Base of the Barracks Tower (walk around it). One of the talest standing buildings in Markarth, so be careful balancing the ledge around this Tower.

Bellow Captain Wayfinders Longboat at the port.

#28 Frosty Planks / 280039ac
At a couple of trees near Dawnstar and the lair with the frost troll dwelling in it (tricky to find, but found with the telekinesis spell... this is generally a good idea while searching a large open area like the sourroundings of Dawnstar, because the speller can detect objects by name at a large distance (and attracting them)).

#29 Emerald Glow / 280039ad
On a slope on top of a bunch of rocks begind Irgnirs House.

#30 Matte Green / 280039ae

#18 OJ / 28002e97
Outside Whiterun. Lays in a rocky type of pit between Battle Born Farm and the secret exit of the companions hidden Lair. This one is hard to spot (almost invisible). Look closely!

If you have the IDs of the Stones, one can "teleport" to their locations.

For example: The first stone in Whiterun is the "Brown Stone". Teleporting to this stone woul look like this:

player.moveto 28002e9e

I will post all the Stones with IDs and where to find them as soon as I located them.
Coffeechipmunk Oct 10, 2014 @ 8:59am 
Can you make a guide/video on where to find all the stones?

BADASS mod
Mσcкιηgвιяɗ May 30, 2014 @ 1:56pm 
@tryonedustbiter thanks for elaborating, I'll try again.
Lego116 May 24, 2014 @ 7:01am 
plz add hints to all citys
tryonedustbiter May 21, 2014 @ 4:02pm 
@Kir4l for #21 go to Riften, pull up the map and center it over the lake. How many small islands do you see, in the middle of the lake, that do not have a building on them? Hint: #21 is NOT inside the walls of Riften.
Mσcкιηgвιяɗ May 11, 2014 @ 6:17am 
I just CANNOT find 21... Swim to a private island was a hint, but that's vague if nothing else.
Exoh Mar 29, 2014 @ 4:05pm 
they should add a chest in console with all off the stones in
Danaleesan Feb 18, 2014 @ 7:10am 
RustedCutlass717
Probably a dumb "helpful hint" but did you make sure that the box is checked in your data files?
Danaleesan Feb 18, 2014 @ 7:09am 
Tryonedustbiter...
Okay...#31 is outside the main entrance to your right as you face the gates...turn right and walk along the wall as far as you can then look to your left on the platform/shelf part of the wall it's laying right on it.

#18 is really tough to spot, I've started with a new character and really had to look and look. Do you have the Mini Zoo mod loaded? If so, the stone is in among the large boulders on the hillside between the Mini Zoo and the Battle Born Farm. Or if you have the mod with the dreamcatcher quest, go up the hillside from the tent camp towards Dragonreach it's in among the large boulders.

Hope this helps..
tryonedustbiter Feb 17, 2014 @ 8:27pm 
#18 Dragonsreach covers quite a bit of area, where do you stand to "Look for it at the 2 o'clock position"? If I stand right at the base of the wall where the grass gives way to rocks and turn to the 2 o'clock position, I see nothing but rocks. If I step out to the edge of the cliff under these rocks, I can see some broken stonework at the base of the cliff, and a treasure chest just beyond them. At 3 o'clock, I see the Battle Born Farm with the lowest rapids beyond it.

I cannot see #18 anywhere in this area.
tryonedustbiter Feb 17, 2014 @ 6:46pm 
@Danaleeson: I still can't find 31 - "outside the main entrance" is apparently not enough detail. With your back to the gate, there is a platform down the steps to the left, a guard tower ahead and to the right, and stables ahead and to the left. I do not see #31 in any of those places.

Anybody with a little more detail that can help here?
tryonedustbiter Feb 17, 2014 @ 5:33pm 
After installing the mod, there is a minute or two (or ten) where the software is loading before you can go into the game. Once installed, it takes a minute or so to load all the mods that you have subscribed as well as to load any updates that the authors of those mods have made before you can enter the game. Wait for it.

If that's not your problem, then you may have loaded a save from before the mods were added. You will need to "CONTINUE WITH LAST SAVE" do not load a different save.

If that still doesn't fix the issue try uninstalling all the other mods that you have and load each one separately to determine if there is an incompatible mod in your stack (e.g. unload everything, load this mod, go into the game to verify that it loaded, exit the game, load the next mod and go into the game to verify, exit and load the next mod, repeat ad infinitum.)

If you still experience problems, uninstall and re-install Skyrim, then load your mods as above.
RustedCutlass717 Feb 15, 2014 @ 10:10am 
I installed the mod, but the stones are just not appearing. Anywhere. Even in the console. I'm going to have to keep this mod unsubscribed, unless you know what happened
Calvin Jan 23, 2014 @ 10:13am 
Outside solitude at the stables,the windmill just ouside and to the left if your facing the mill.
tryonedustbiter Jan 18, 2014 @ 6:34pm 
Thanks. I did find 33 but hadn't marked it off on my list. I'll look for these others soon.
Danaleesan Jan 17, 2014 @ 5:11pm 
tryonedustbiter..There are only 4 in Markarth.. Okay..31 Check outside the main entrance, 32 Check the road out of Markarth, 33 There was a hint many pages ago (I give the credit to that player) look closely around the waterwheel, and 34 Very, very hard to find and difficult to reach, find the S guard tower in the general vicinity of the waterwheel need to go up high and climb around the foundation. Good luck..
Danaleesan Jan 17, 2014 @ 5:05pm 
Just myself and I....perhaps you should check under dead things in one of the homes in Windhelm....perhaps a residence now belonging to Aventus
Danaleesan Jan 17, 2014 @ 5:01pm 
tryonedustbiter...41 in Morthal...look behind Alva's house up in the rocks. And number 42 is SW of Morthal go uphill and look on the left side of the path.
Danaleesan Jan 17, 2014 @ 4:58pm 
tryonedustbiter...number 18 is outside the wall of Whiterun beyond Dragonsreach. Put Dragonsreach at your back and look for it at the 2o'clock position.
Danaleesan Jan 17, 2014 @ 4:56pm 
tryonedustbiter...Number 16 is a really hard to find item. Go to the Chillfurrow Farm and locate the hay bail, the stone is between that haybail and the wall of the farmhouse. Look really carefully or you'll miss it.
Calvin Jan 16, 2014 @ 4:31pm 
Run to the calls of the young one calling the black sacrament to find 43
tryonedustbiter Jan 14, 2014 @ 3:18pm 
@danaleesan: enquiring minds want to know. where is #16 & 18 in Whiterun; all 5 in Markarth; and #41 & 42 in Morthal?
Danaleesan Dec 3, 2013 @ 7:42am 
I've located all the dragonstones, if anyone wants a hint I will be checking back from time to time.
Danaleesan Nov 29, 2013 @ 5:42am 
There is only one dragonstone under the ramp up to the college. Try looking around in the Arcanaeum for #6.
tryonedustbiter Nov 24, 2013 @ 10:20pm 
If there is a second dragonstone under the ramp up to the college of winterhold, I can't find it.

Can anybody out there provide further information on this?

#23 was green and easily spotted but somebody previously posted that there are two stones under this ramp. Not being able to see the second one is starting to bug me.
tryonedustbiter Nov 24, 2013 @ 9:03am 
OMG!! I had to drop into walking mode to find #30. Even then I walked right past it twice... the little bugger is near invisible on the beach.

#30 makes 30 for me, only 20 more to go.
Danaleesan Nov 23, 2013 @ 3:43pm 
Watch your arrows in Falkreath or you might hit #38.
tryonedustbiter Nov 23, 2013 @ 9:16am 
In Riften, take a swim to a private island to find #21 ... then you never have to swim again (water walking buff)
Danaleesan Nov 23, 2013 @ 9:16am 
#9 is in the Ratway Vaults just outside the Ragged flagon (think that's the right spelling)
Danaleesan Nov 23, 2013 @ 9:13am 
Sure, it's northeast of the Dawnstar Sanctuary, right on the edge of the water.
tryonedustbiter Nov 22, 2013 @ 11:02pm 
@Danaleesan: I can't find #30 along the shoreline in Dawnstar. I've followed the shore in both directions from the docks for several minutes and no sign of the stone. Could you please narrow it down some for blind idiots like me?
tryonedustbiter Nov 22, 2013 @ 12:55pm 
#24 in Winterhold ... Who stores a mead barrel in a ruined house anyways? (somebody said they found one in a barrel ... I'm thinking it was this one.
Danaleesan Nov 21, 2013 @ 2:22pm 
# 30 is the one along the shoreline and it's in Dawnstar.
Danaleesan Nov 18, 2013 @ 3:43pm 
Never thought to write down where I found the stones and just started....

#48 in Solitude is off the upper courtyard thru a door onto a small balcony, near the entrance to the Temple of the Divines.

#32 in Markarth - follow the road from the stables and look straight across the river.

#37 in Falkreath is in a well...

In either Windhelm or Dawnstar I found one along the shoreline. (sorry can't remember which one it was)

Can't find 16 or 18 in Whiterun either...
tryonedustbiter Nov 17, 2013 @ 3:49pm 
O'Greeny is #23 (not 26 like i thought) and it is the only one that I could find under the arches. I will look again.

I did finally find #40 in Morthal ... it looked just like a rock so I skipped over it before.

Up to 22 now. Still missing are 16 & 18 in Whiterun ... any hints?

Somebody posted that there are 2 along the path near bards college. One of these is actually next to the entrance to your home in Solitude and once again I can't find the second.
Danaleesan Nov 17, 2013 @ 2:15pm 
Can't find a second one (#6 ??) under the arches up to the mages college either. #40 is under one of the sets of steps outside going up to the guardhouse in Morthal and yes it blends into the background, you need to look very carefully.
tryonedustbiter Nov 16, 2013 @ 3:15pm 
I can only find one under the ramp up to the mages college in winterhold ... #26-O'greeny (or is it 27?) How about adding a hint on where the second one is? #7 on top of the Arcanum was easy to find.

Also I can't find #40 in Morthal. There are 3 sets of steps up to the guardhouse and one inside that goes down to the jail. I've been all over all four sets of steps and can't see it.. Is #40 colored to blend in with the background somewhere?


I'm up to lucky 13 now :)
tryonedustbiter Nov 16, 2013 @ 9:02am 
Morthal, overturned boat spilled out #39
