Top 10 most difficult quests in the main game and DLC

Base game and DLC – Dawnguard and Dragonborn are able to confuse even experienced players with their tasks. Difficult opponents, intricate locations, search for necessary items and interesting plot twists – completing these quests will require perseverance, skill and dexterity. Not all of them can be mastered the first time.

Dovahkiin

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been one of the most popular fantasy RPGs for 10 years now. She knows how to attract new players and bring old ones back to her open world over and over again. One of the reasons fans love replaying Skyrim is because gamers have a lot to do in this game. Not only do you need to discover a lot of hidden opportunities and locations, but it would be nice to complete all the quests. Most often, problems arise with the next ten.

Ancient knowledge

The quest “Ancient Knowledge” can be activated during the passage of the main quest line in Skyrim. To do this, you need to talk to Paarturnax… The dragon will tell about The Elder Scroll… After Dovahkiin, the College of Winterhold, two battles in the Dwemer ruins, the killing of the Falmer and the Tower of Mzarka await.

The abundance of monsters and travel through the ruins seriously complicate the passage of this mission. It disappoints many, but it is worth remembering that it reveals important plot points and details of the lore. So there are plenty of reasons to endure a few exhausting hours.

Blood in the snow

V Windhelme the bodies of women are found and the Dragonborn is tasked with investigating this frightening crime. The player will have to interview witnesses, walk around the city and search for evidence.



The side quest adds a detective touch to the game. And it is one of the most difficult side effects, which is very easy to fail. Those who want to go through it correctly will immediately have to refer to the guide. After all, one mistake in the sequence of the interviewed NPCs can lead to the wrong suspect.

March of the Dead

The quest is interesting for two points. First, it can be a tough nut to crack for beginners and those who don’t like ash brat. A lot of them. Sometimes too much. Dovahkiin must help Captain Velet to cope with the generations of ash that flooded the area.

Secondly, those who have been with the TES series for a long time will have a meeting with an old acquaintance at the end of the quest. Undead units are commanded by a general Falx Kary… With its live version, players could meet in the DLC for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. In the DLC, by the fifth part, the player will have to complete his story.

At the top of the Apocrypha

Final quest DLC Dragonborn and meeting with Mirakom, the first Dragonborn, will be remembered by many Skyrim fans. Mirak has excellent regeneration and before finishing him off, the player will have to bring him to the brink of life and death at least three times.

Fight against Alduin after this task it seems like an elementary task. After all, it is the fight with Mirakam that is often called the true ending of TES V and the most difficult battle in the game.

Family court

Family court

One of the final quests of the main plot DLC Dawnguard. It’s time for the Dragonborn to finally resolve the vampire’s family conflict Serans and lord Harkon, her father. The usual solution is to get rid of the problematic owner of Volkihar.


In addition to the vampire lord himself, who periodically disappears or does not allow the hero to approach him even a step, you will have to fight with draurges, skeletons and gargoyles. There are plenty of reasons for a headache. But what can’t you do for the Dovahkiin’s companion Serana and the common good.

Forbidden Legend

Forbidden Legend

Dovahkiin must collect scattered across Folgunturu, Geirmund Hall and Saartalu parts of amulet of Goldur. Of course, trying to get all the shards and reforge the amulet will not do without several battles. This includes some of the toughest opponents in the game.

The three sons of Goldur, who will have to face at each of the points, will lengthen the passage of the quest. They will be accompanied by powerful draugrs. Spiced with a killer cocktail with traps and puzzles.

Lost for centuries

Quest for activating the ethereal forge in DLC Dawnguard starts out deceptively easy. Arktamz, the crossing of the Deep Folk and Mzulf do not cause any problems, fragments of ethereum just jump into the player’s hands.

But in Raldbthare everything is no longer so simple. If the player has not cleared the ruins before, then the simplest quest here will turn into a small carnage. The insidious fragment hid almost at the very exit from the dungeon. For those who do not want to get bogged down here for a long time, it is best to get access to the Black Reach in advance and calmly go through it to the desired room. Then the whole mission will seem like a pleasant walk for a reward.

People gardener

Quest from DLC Dragonborn Is one of the main tests of a player’s agility. Once in the Apocrypha, the player will have to show their ability to keep balance on a very treacherous bridge, jump on platforms. Along the way, you will need to dodge the tentacles, which does not make the task easier.



The path to the Black Book will not do without battles. The motor skills, accuracy and attentiveness of those who passed the first time can only be envied.

The wolf queen awakens

Queen

Under Solitude hiding Potema Septim, The Wolf Queen, mistakenly dead. It is she who must be overcome by the Dragonborn. And before that – take a walk through its catacombs, filled with draugr.

Potema isn’t one of the hardest bosses in Skyrim, but that’s no reason to underestimate her. She will constantly revive the draugr, her lightning attacks will complicate the player’s life. The fight with the queen will definitely be remembered for a long time.

House of the Eater of the World

Eater's house

In the “House of the Eater of Worlds” the player will have to catch a dragon in order to get to the portal to Sovngarde. After the flight to the portal, he will meet with Nakrin, one of the most difficult bosses in The Elder Scrolls V.

The internet is full of priest fighting guides for a reason. Not all players are prepared for the kind of leap in difficulty that is taking place in this battle. Ranged attacks and frost magic can drive even experienced Dovahkiins into a dead end. Unsurprisingly, the most popular tactic to fight him is to use Shadow Stone and invisibly run to the portal without triggering Nakrin.
