Skyrim player reveals a neat trick in “With friends like these” mission

Bethesda The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim

Reddit user and avid Skyrim player DarkSteveYT discovers a neat new way to find out who you should kill in the second mission for the Dark Brotherhood questline. 

Fun Fact: Using Clairvoyance will reveal who had the bounty during "With Friends Like These…" from skyrim

Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim is one of the most legendary video games of all time. The game consists of multiple quests and sub-quests scattered around the open world. This allows the player to join numerous factions presented within Skyrim. One player comes across a mind-blowing detail that happens during the mission ‘With Friends Like These,’ a decade after the game has been released.

The Dark Brotherhood is one of the oldest factions in the games‘ series. First mentioned in The Elder Scrolls: Arena, the organization has since then persisted across The Elder Scrolls games, including Skyrim. During the memorable opening mission, the player meets Astrid. One of the factions fierce enforcers. The player is then forced to choose between three different people to kill, one of which is a wanted criminal. However, one player discovered a neat detail that helps reveal who actually deserves the death penalty.

DarkSteveYT made the remarkable discovery that if the player casts the spell Clairvoyance, it will actually reveal to the player which of the three captives deserve to die. Clairvoyance is one of the most underrated spells in the game. Not many players utilize the spell enough so to have it play a key role in the mission is amazing.

The game is over 10 years old yet players just keep finding ways to unveil its hidden secrets. Although we’re guessing that it’ll be a long time until the game finally runs out of secrets to reveal. I guess gamers everywhere will just have to keep playing Skyrim until Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls 6 comes out.
