Sergius Turrianus in his room at the College of Winterhold.

Quick WalkthroughEdit

  3. Return to Sergius.

Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Sergius will request that you pickup an item to be enchanted from a customer, located somewhere in Skyrim. The NPC will be in a city, will have a non-unique voice, and won't be part of either the Thalmor or the College of Winterhold; most of the possible NPCs are elves, but not all. In total, there are 57 possible NPCs. Locate the NPC and speak with them to obtain the item required. Return to Sergius to complete the quest and be rewarded. You will be rewarded with a leveled amount of gold for the delivery of the item.


Levels Reward

10-19 400
20-29 500
30-39 600
40+ 750


  • After the Thieves Guild quest Hard Answers, Aicantar may stay in Calcelmo's Tower and not leave. In this case, the dialogue option to accept the item from him will not be available. If you try and pickpocket him, he is not carrying the item. He is immediately hostile towards you, and you will receive a bounty in Markarth as a guard will come to your location. Attacking and killing Aicantar fails the mini-quest.
  • It is possible for Aicantar to randomly return to his original routine in Understone Keep after completing Hard Answers when receiving this quest; if this happens, receiving the Enchantment Pick-Up quest can force him to remain there for the duration of the game, or simply reappear at Calcelmo's Tower.
  • You may be directed to an NPC who is already dead (i.e. killed by a vampire if you have Dawnguard add-on installed), making the quest impossible to be completed.
