The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Take up Arms quest

Asked about The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Nov. 11, 2011, 7:13 p.m. by NecroXite

When "Having my arm tested" i accidentally used magic and vilkas quoted "what do you this this is? we don't use magic here. Now come at me!". So i brought out a short sword and proceeded to attack. except after knocking him out 8 times he just keeps saying the same thing over and over. I've left the area a few times, tried talking to him and always get the same results. Any way to fix this or is this a known glitch?

    Reload the game from a different save, whether it be an auto save from just before the fight or somewhere else. Yeah you lose some of that expeireince but it should reset the problem.

    Alternately, you MIGHT be able to get him back to normal by leaving the area and waiting for 2 weeks, this works with some, but not all quest related NPCs.
