Hello. I'm having trouble with a quest in the xbox 360 version of Oblivion, "Tears of the Savior." I've noticed this issue has come up alot. I found all the tears surrounding the frozen knight, but I can't get the one near him. Unlike the experience of others in videos and screenshots, the tear near the knight isn't on the outside of the frozen block, but on the inside. It's by his feet, and I've tried to crouch and get as close as I can to the tear, but I can't grab it. If anyone could help whose experienced or knows of this problem, that'd be great. Thanks.

i remember i had a prob cuz the maps for the tears (after i tried hard as hell to find em) one wasnt in the correct spot. but you problem sounds like you can see it but cant get it. all i can do is give you a link or get a spell that would move it in some way

Yeah you're right about that seeing it but not getting it. But I tried using telekinisis, which is the spell Remote Manipulation, I can move things 10 feet of range. But the spell didn't go through the ice. If you could get me a link to the solution that'd be great, thanks.

in that link in the notes sec.

"Occasionally, the fifth tear may spawn inside the rock, rather than on top of it. If this is the case, either use the console command, TCL or reload a previous save." i guess you'll have to reload :/ i dont see a fix unless your using a PC. and seeing as you in the 360 forum i dont think thats the case...

Oh wow. Yeah, im stuck. This quest was a while ago, and i dont have any reloads before the quest. Hah, so is there anyway I can mess the quest up, by killing the person who assigned it maybe? Then i'll see if that person can respawn?

Isn't the person that gives that quest out a queen or something? Killing her won't work

No, the giver of the quest is S'Drassa, it is a Mages' Guild quest. I tried killing a member and getting suspended, but that didn't reset the quest. I guess I'm stuck, which sucks cause I wanted to finish the Mages Guild quests. Just so the creators of Oblivion know, this quest is a waste of time...

ok this might be of some help to some people. I too thought there was a tear in the ice, but then i realized that it was larger than the other tears i had found. and i had found 2 tears right next to each other near the rocks at the base of the ice platform so the one that was supposed to be by the guardian had been moved. so check out one of the maps that show which tears are where because u may have just missed one by accident . here is a link to a site with a map of that area. http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Image:OB-Map-MS37World.jpg
