Skyrim Player Devises New Way To Deal With Grelod The Kind, And It Involves A Literal Suplex
Skyrim: New Way To Deal With Grelod The Kind
You remember Grelod the Kind? The evil owner and operator of Honorhall Orphanage in Riften? Well, if not, she is the first person you’ve to kill as part of the Dark Brotherhood line of quests. She is a horrible lady that appears to enjoy torturing kids, so killing her really is not all that big a deal.
There are many ways to go about killing Grelod, from the obvious route of walking up to her and stabbing her in the chest to poisoning the tea of her while she sleeps. But maybe the easiest way to kill her is actually to not kill her at all. Rather, just let her assistant do the murdering for you.
We have got Reddit user Awesomedude5687 to thank for this technique of Grelod disposal. Step one is actually to cast Courage on assistant Constance Michel and a few of the kids–this will keep them from running also and away make them turn hostile against any creature that attacks them. Then you cast Fury on Grelod to make her attack probably the nearest person, which is going to be the recently encouraged assistant slash kids.
Constance and the kids can’t be killed, but Grelod has literally 2 HP. This means that even a small jab is actually fatal to Grelod, but Constance goes full WWE by performing a German suplex.
Presto! Grelod is actually dead and nobody is actually the wiser, because Skyrim is actually a nine-year-old game and does not have AI complex enough to recognize when an NPC murders another NPC due to player chicanery.
If it was not enough silliness for you now, may I interest you in a Skyrim charcuterie board? The Spriggan Sap is actually piping fresh, and there is a sweet roll in it for you.
And if not, just remember that the dragons in Skyrim can occasionally turn into goats, and sometimes vice versa. Who knows what you are likely to fight until you look.
