    Gratz! I had to stop after 4 tries. My almost 4 week old likes the TV on when she is done feeding and wanting a nap. I'll try again later.

    And it is done!!! Cleaned out the 2 places I could get to, killing everything that moved. Got the crown as well. Fun quest if you don't miss that one stone, reward kinda sucked though.

    Purpleshew, thanks for the guide!

    I have the restored Crown of Barenziah in the cistern, and it gives me an option to activate it, but when I press it, nothing happens. Any ideas why?

    Once you've found all 24 Stones of Barenziah, Vex from the Thieves Guild will ask you to recover the Crown of Barenziah from Tovald's Cave. According to the Vex, once you recover the crown, which is a paragon for the Thieves Guild, she'll be able to restore it to its full strength and reward you with the Prowler's Profit. Which is a perk that allows your character to find 2x as many gems in treasure and found loot

    because its explains that nothing happens with the crown you can activate all the honor items the found ones you can take back, but this as good as any place to display them, the stolen ones won't move, but they do nothing... what you get from restoring the crown is the perk and the crown on display does that explain better

    I'm hearing of a bug where if you start the quest, The Man Who Cried Wolf, at level 81, you will not be able to complete the questline which means you won't be able to buy Proudspire Manor. It has to do with a level up being a trigger for the courier to deliver the letter from Falk Firebeard. I cleared wolfskull cave around 2 days ago & still havent received the letter tho ive got 4 visits from the courier regarding the places of power letters from a friend.
    The workaround is to pickpocket the Solitude Fletcher key from the guy who runs the fletcher in Solitude. That key will open the backdoor, the one w/the porch that faces northeast, & grant you access into the master bedroom to get the stone. I confirmed this on ps3.

    EDIT: I need to clarify what I posted here because I discovered something different. You can still become thane of Solitude & buy Proudspire Manor, even if you start & complete MWCW @ level 81. You will not be able to acquire the Shield of Solitude, unfortunetly, but that seems to be the only repercussion.
    It appears that 2 quests are triggers to become thane of Solitude; the Man Who Cried Wolf & Elisif's Tribute (the one where you take torygg's war horn to the Talos shrine) but not the Wolf Queen Awakened. Once you have completed MWCW, even tho you may not have received a letter from Falk, go back to visit Elisif. She'll auto-dialogue about how Falk's been talkin you up & she wants a favor. She'll ask you to place Torygg's war horn at a Talos shrine northeast of White Run, near Shimmermist Cave. (I cant be certain if there is a trigger to initiate her dialogue but I'm thinking not.) Once you complete this quest, she'll go thru the usual requirements of becoming thane; i.e. X amount of favors for the townspeople, landowner & of course, once those are fulfilled, you're all set. Sorry if my op caused confusion or unnecessary headaches.
