As I just added in my cleanup tag on the article, there are still inaccuracies in this article. There are several steps to completing this quest and I'm afraid they're all going to need checking in all possible orders before the cleanup can come off. These are the stages that come to mind right now:
- Getting the quest
- Killing Shashev
- Getting the Key (note that this can be done before killing him AND before even getting the quest)
- Having 11171 gold in your inventory
- Speaking to Sirilonwe
That is one hell of a lot of possible orders in which the quest may proceed. I've already found that 1, 2, 3, 4 and not 5 works (contrary to the article). Various previous edits claim that other sequences don't work. And I hate to point this out, but there may be differences between GotY and Vanilla.
well... I just did this on two of my saves. The first time I did steps 1 and 4 skipping 2 and 3. The second save I only did step 4. The second time I was in Mournhold and just dropped money so that I had two piles. When I picked up the 11171 pile I got the Eltonbrand message.
I've got vanilla Morrowind, the latest patch, Tribunal, Bloodmoon, along with most of the expansions listed in this wiki.

Did some further digging and learned a bit about how the method of getting the Eltonbrand has changed. Adjusted the description and removed the cleanup tag at the top of the article. SRdV184.108.40.206 16:19, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
- Great work! I would never have guessed there was a difference between the two versions. That seems to clear a lot of things up. Thanks! rpeh •T•C•E• 10:50, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
It seems somebody has edited the page to only include the old instructions again instead of just needing to have Goldbrand and 11171 gold in your inventory in the GOTY Edition. 220.127.116.11 03:10, 8 February 2014 (GMT)
I tried this using both methods repeatedly, and simply could not get this weapon to spawn. Using GotY, unofficial patch, and MCP.18.104.22.168 05:37, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
Morrowind Patch 1.6.4
Morrowind Patch 1.6.4 - what kind of patch it is? Official, patch project, etc? Please include it's full name. Oxyk 12:02, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
- Typing it into Google will redirect you to this page. --SerCenKing Talk 10:15, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
- Typing it into Google will not redirect, it will show many pages and uesp page in the first ten results. I don't think relying on google search and release version is good enough. User should browse all possible patch projects and select one with version 1.6.4 (if that page will be still in google top results, or if user will use another search engine that page might be hard to find). Morrowind patch it's what you will find on elderscrolls.com, if you call another patch the same name it's a bit misleading. Oxyk 02:03, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
- Morrowind Patch 1.6.4 is the full name.
- It's been a couple years since I downloaded the various patches and plugins, but given there isn't a Morrowind patch 1.6.4 from Bethesda (the latest patch for Morrowind shown is 1.2.0813) I'm pretty sure I got it from the Morrowind Patch Project. SRdV 22.214.171.124 09:21, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
- In the future, sign your posts with four of these: ~ The patch is a third-party mod. Third-party software cannot be used with the Xbox version.— Unsigned comment by 126.96.36.199 (talk) at 03:13 on 29 November 2010
- I go nuts on you for not signing and forget to do it myself. 188.8.131.52 08:14, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
If there are no objections, I'd like to move this note, "The odd nature of this sword seems to stem from Bethesda developer Mark Nelson..." to the General namespace. ~Shuryard (talk) 16:56, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
