The Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim is one of the most popular games of all time – and already one of the first quests, “Diplomatic Immunity”, has it all.
The Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim – Diplomatic Immunity
Diplomatic Immunity is one of the first missions in The Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim video game. Delphine asks you to meet her in River Forest after a brief reconnaissance. So go to River Forest and enter the “Sleeping Giant” inn. Talk to Delphine and follow her into the cellar.
- Before you can enter the embassy, you must meet the wood elf “Malborn” in solitude.
- In Solitude you will witness an execution. Here, do not forget to search the corpse for items. Afterwards, go to the “Twinkling Skeever” inn. Talk to Malborn and hand over the equipment to him.
- Now meet Delphine at Katla’s court. Put on the festive clothes Delphine gives you and take off all other clothes. Then approach Delphine again to go with her to the embassy.
- On arriving at the embassy, first speak to Malborn and ask for something to drink. You are then given a brandy.
- Now talk to Razelan, the man on the bench to the left of the guard. Hand him the brandy and then answer his question in the affirmative. Ask him for a distraction.
- Once all the guests are distracted, run to Malborn and follow him. In the chamber after the kitchen you can find the things you left in the chest.
Silent and secret or loud and brutal?
As is often the case in Skyrim, you are now faced with a choice: do you want to sneak to success or fight your way to the death? If you don’t already have an invisibility spell, we recommend the fighting variant.
- So fight your way up the stairs. At the back on the left you’ll find the door towards Elenwen’s salon.
- Sneak into the drawing room to eavesdrop on the conversation between the two people. At the back in the corner you will find the chest you are looking for with the books and the key. Then go down the stairs and use the key to open the door to the dungeon.
- “Take care” of the two soldiers to take a key from each of them. Open the chest and take out the dragon reports, free Etienne from the cell and escape with him through the floor hatch.
- Try to go ahead and be ready for surprises. We recommend Fire Spells and Relentless Force.
- First jump down the slope and attack the ice troll with “Scream”. If you don’t finish off the troll as quickly as possible, Etienne will die. Whether Etienne’s death has any effect on the further course of the game has not yet been proven.
