Restoring the thieves guild?

I have everything ready to go. And when i go to talk to Brynjolf he just says: "i have important things to do, we'll speak another time" and i cant get my achievement for this. Is there anyway i can fix this? Ive tried doing way more countless jobs than i should have done just for Delvin to finally tell me its restored to its fullest and cant get the quest "Under New Management" from Brynjolf now.

EDIT: Sitting here stalking Brynjolf and hes just waking around Riften eating and putting his hand to his chin, admiring stupid shit like stores and food... fatass.

Have you done all the specific prerequisite quests? You need to specifically complete a certain amount of Delvin/Vex side jobs in four specific holds, THEN do the 4 separate improvement quests before you'll get the final one.

May i ask what the prerequisite quests are? Ive done countless fishing, sweep, jobs and everything else. Everytime i go to talk to Delvin before i can get a new job, i get the options to say, "ive completed the special job in X" (whichever hold) and i tell him that for all holds required.

level 3

For starters, you have to finish the Thieves Guild Questline through the Thieves Guild Spoiler Once you have that out of the way, you need to complete:

5 Delvin Vex Jobs in Whiterun, Solitude, Windhelm/Eastmarch and Markarth/Reach.

Imitation Amnesty (Whiterun), Silver Lining (Markarth), Dainty Sload (Solitude) and Summerset Shadows (Windhelm).

I was looking in my competed quests, as far as i got in the thieves guild quests, was Dampened Spirits. Which is the 4th quest in their line. Scoundrels Folly is the next quest but i have to talk to Mercer to activate the quest, but I cant find Mercer anywhere.

level 5

Have you spoken to Maven post Dampened Spirits? Try that, and if not see if he's outside Snow Veil Sanctum.

I ended up at Snow Veil Sanctum. At first i showed up in my daedric armour. Maven wasnt there but Karliah was. But when i interact or talk to her, she just says "eh" and i cant do anything else with her. Ive pushed around. Pickpocketed her till she said something to me and started attacking me. Should i show up at a certain time or something?

level 7

Maven would be in the Bee and Barb upstairs, I think talking to her is the final step. Then, Mercer should be back in the Ragged Flagon Cistern. Snow Veil Sanctum is where the next quest takes place, I figured maybe Mercer might've headed there already lol. He does have a house next to the guild, too, but idk if he's ever there or it's accessible til later.

level 1

Let me list all the things you need to restore the guild:

  • completing the questline by returning the skeleton key

  • doing 5 jobs in whiterun, markarth, windhelm and solitude

  • completing special jobs for cities mentioned above (i.e. Silver lining for Markarth, Danity Sload for Solitude etc.)

Have you done it all? If you did, try using console commands. If you don't know how to do so, here's how: press ~, then type in setstage TGLeadership 10 to start the quest manually.

level 2

I must add. I have been trying to do the 5 jobs per hold. I noticed.. the easiest way to get the special job for that hold.. do 2 from Delvin, and 3 from Vex (normally what triggers it for me is finishing the pick pocketing). Don’t know if there are specifics to how I was doing it, but I spent 3 hours trying to do it yesterday and only ended up getting 2 cities done. It was really frustrating

If it helps i do know that you once you tell him you want a job, exit out of the conversation, and quick save before the actually job/quest pops up. If you get a job for the wrong city, reload the quicksave and itll give you a different job.

level 4

That is handy to know.. thank you dragonborn

Or if you don’t care about quest stats, it’s even quicker to just talk to them and cancel the quest before asking for another

Ok so looking into my competed quests, as far as i got in the thieves guild quests, was Dampened Spirits. Which is the 4th quest in their line. Scoundrels Folly is the next quest but i have to talk to Mercer to activate the quest, if the video i understand the video im watching now is correct. I cant find Mercer anywhere.

level 3

I don't think you can use console commands on xbox.

Complete the guild quest line with nocturnal, then you need to do 5 jobs in each of Whiterun, markarth, solitude and wind helm (easiest jobs are numbers for Devlin IMO).

As soon as you do 4 jobs in one of the cities you’ll get a special quest from Devlin for that city - do this for each city and you will have restored the guild to its former glory, and speaking to Brynjolf will then trigger you being made the head of the guild.

Edit: 5 radiant quests, not 4

level 1

From my experience, it's best to keep at least one item from the Thieves Guild Armor set in your inventory while doing the Thieves Guild quest line.

I know it sounds silly, but I've had trouble starting and finishing Under New Management all because I stored away my Thieves Guild armor as soon as I got it. This is with USLEEP installed.
