Someone please help! On every one of my skyrim saves, whenever I try to join the companions I get stuck on the 'train with Vilkas' quest. He keeps saying 'we don't use magic here, new blood' and attacking me. I tried waiting, fast traveling away, reloading from an earlier save, even making a new character! BUT HE JUST KEEPS BLOODY DOING IT!!


I tried doing the whole "setstage c00 20" then "setstage c00 30" fix, but even though I got the quest to take a sword to Eorlund, Vilkas kept trying to attack me and kept repeating that same line. (I don't know if this helps with troubleshooting, but I keep getting dead dragons dropping out of the sky in the middle of cities as well).


(And of course, it goes without saying that I didn't actually use magic anywhere near vilkas)


EDIT: Also, I used to have "Enchanced skyrim factions-- the companions" installed (just the requirements version, not the version with changes to the quests), but when I started getting this bug I uninstalled it and loaded an earlier save. But it's still happening even without the mod.

Hi there! I see you have the same problem I do. While this can be annoying, I did find a solution that worked temporarily without the use of mods or console commands. Now, whether it is through luck or whatever, here is what I did. I took a two handed weapon (the ebony blade, though I doubt it makes a difference) and just kept power attacking vilkas. No one else attacked me and Vilkas kept being staggered, but he eventually said the next line about his sword. Now, he didn't actually give me the sword until I power attacked him a few more times. So give that a whirl and see if it works for you.
