Bug Note Moved From Article[edit]

Moved from article: Bug: If you fail to pick up the Dragon Elder Scroll in the Tower of Mzark before completing the quest Discerning the Transmundane, when you try to pick up the scroll, it will disappear and not show up in your inventory, hence preventing you from advancing the quest.

Edited bug note as it was false and providing misinformation. May have been from before it was patched, or the result of some person's buggy mod. I finished the daedric quest long ago and left the scroll there for hundreds of hours real-time. When I pick it up, it advances Elder Knowledge, and is weightless in my inventory. It does not disappear. (360) — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 10:58 on 1 May 2014‎

I've moved it here, just so that there's a visible record of it. It was added by one person and confirmed by another, and both would have been after 1.9 was released, so it's possible that it only occurs under certain conditions (like, perhaps, if you installed Dawnguard partway through your game) or that there's some other factor at play. Confirmed bugs probably shouldn't be removed without some kind of talk page record or discussion. Robin Hood  (talk) 21:39, 1 May 2014 (GMT)
I had the same exact problem. I did not pick up the Dragon Scroll from the Tower, completed many other quests, then came back for the Dawnguard quest and when I tried to pick it up it just vanished. Is not in inventory. And I had Dawnguard installed from the beginning of this game. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 00:45 on 29 June 2014‎
Since this is the third confirmation, I'll move it back to the bugs list in the article. Robin Hood  (talk) 00:50, 29 June 2014 (GMT)
I'm glad this is here. I was looking online because I have the same problem. Playing with multiple mods on the PC. I even added the item to my inventory via the console and the quest doesn't update. How I managed to move forward was adding the Elder Scroll (Dragon) via console (player.additem xx0126DC 1 [xx being the load order of Dawnguard, for me it was 03], then moving the quest forward (setstage DLC1VQElder 40) -- 19:45, 9 August 2014 (GMT)
Thanks for the workaround. I'll add it to the page. Robin Hood  (talk) 23:33, 9 August 2014 (GMT)
Confirmed still active bug on Special Edition. Have Dawnguard installed, left scroll. Finished Discerning Transmundane. Went back for scroll, scroll vanished on pick up and did not complete quest. Work around saved a lot of replay hours. 05:30, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
