Honeyside is one of the few houses you can buy in the game Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is a small wooden house in the village of Riften. After it is purchased, your main character will use this house as a residence in the city, as well as to become a Thane. Honeyside can only be purchased after completing a number of quests related to the village of Riften. These quests should not be too difficult or complicated for you.
Step 1. Travel to the town of Riften
Riften is one of the capitals in the world of Skyrim that the Dragonborn (main character) must travel to. This city is located in the southeastern part of the map and can be reached both on foot and on horseback.
Step 2. Enter the city and walk to the Riften Fishery
Here you will find a female of the reptilian Argonian named Wujeeta.
Step 3. Talk to the Argonian
She will tell you she is sick. Give her a bottle of medicine and use Persuasion, Intimidation, or Bribery to get her to give you information about who is selling the Skooma.
For your information, Skooma is considered an illegal drug in Skyrim. The Skooma quest is part of the game's storyline and goes back to the very beginning of the game
Step 4. Talk to the Jarl of Riften
After getting some information from Wujeeta, you should walk to the keep and talk to the Jarl (named Laila Law-Giver) about the Skooma incident.
The Jarl will then instruct you to kill the Skooma merchants (the next quest)
Step 5. Kill the Skooma traders
The Jarl will give you a key to a warehouse outside Riften, by the harbor. Enter the warehouse and eliminate the Skooma merchants.
The merchants are fairly weak enemies and can be easily defeated
Step 6. Go back to the Jarl
Talk to her to complete the quest, after which she will ask you to help some other inhabitants of Riften. Go back into town and look for people to help.
You have to help at least 3-5 inhabitants through random quests that are quite trivial and very easy to complete
Step 7. Go back to the Jarl again
She will make you a Thane (a local hero) for helping the people of Riften, but before she can do that she will tell you that a Thane should be a resident of Riften. Then she will tell you that there is a house that you can buy.
Step 8. Talk to the steward
You can buy the house from him for 8,000 gold.
Step 9. Go back to the Jarl
She will now make you a Thane and give you a Housecarl, a non-playable character who takes care of the security of a house.
- Even without using tricks or quick ways you will eventually be able to buy the house Honeyside if you follow the storyline of the game.
- Helping the people of Riften is an important step in getting the Jarl's Thane quest.
- Buying Honeyside is part of the original game. You do not need to purchase an extension to buy this house.
