Strange Amulet (spoilers)

#1Marrow13Posted 11/22/2011 6:19:20 PM
While doing the murderer quest in Windhelm I refused to sell the amulet to Calixto, and since I killed him for being the murderer I have this thing with no apparent use for it.

The mage guy said it was a necromancer's amulet which led me to hope I could give it power somehow, but I can't enchant it...

Did I just basically fail by not selling it to Calixto when I had the chance?

I'm in the same boat but I've been told that if you accused the mage the quest will start up again since he is not the real killer and the amulet has a use then. Hasn't happened for me yet though.

Yeah I think you needed to sell it to Calixto and then talk to the mage in order for it to become the Necromancers Amulet. Is it stuck in your invetory as a quest item? Because that's a bug apparently. Hopefully they'll patch it.

Yea I sort of accidentally cheated because I wanted to know what was in Calixto's chest....which gives away that he is the killer. So I knew not to accuse the mage.

Its a neat looking amulet, so I guess I'll wear it when I just wanna look cool, but I guess that's 500 gold I'll never see, oh welllllz.

yea I know its a necromancer's amulet, but it still says strange amulet because I didn't sell it...

Can you enchant it if the name changed? I don't mind not getting the money since it looks neat, but I'd like to enchant it and make it my main necklace item.

yes you failed you had to sell for you to get the amulet.
they need to patch it so the strange amulet turns in to the necromancer amulet when you find out about it. or once you finish the quest.

Same thing happened to me. Reload a save beforehand and sell him the amulet.

Now I'm maining a conjurer and I still felt the cons of the amulet outweighed the pros. So don't feel bad if you can't get it to work.
I like tacos more than burritos.
I'm going to eat a taco then a burrito. Get it right people...
