Skyrim: 5 Secret Choices You Didn’t Know You Had in The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim

Skyrim is a game that gives the Dragonborn quite a lot of big decisions as a result, in The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, the player has a significant amount of influence on the way the world develops. However, there’s also a handful of choices available to the you, that you may not have even known about. So today we’ll be taking a look at five secret choices you may have missed in The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.
  • David Erif

    Well, i entered the house at a time when Hroggar wasn't there. Alva caught me completely by surprise because the minute i enter the house's basement i saw her rising from her coffin. That's when i find out she was a vampire. Hroggar never even saw me killing her, but he still blames me for "everything i've done", despite the fact that he's still alive and no longer in a vampire's control. To me he is an ungrateful bastard.

  • Wolf Blaze

    I remember the cannibal quest. I turned into a werewolf, and ate the cannibals. Beautifully ironic.Sidenote: priest guy was cool with werewolf form.

  • Tony Hedge

    The only real choice is whether you abuse smithing and alchemy or not

  • Mortifer Ultimatus

    I actually got kicked out of the Thieves' Guild once because some guards followed me through the secret entrance and started attacking people

  • KANYEda WESTaro

    u can betray stormcloak/imperial in a quest the jaggedcrown

  • Hermon the great

    "Significant ingame consequences."

  • Dovar

    >skyrim>significant ingame consequencespick one

  • Chicky Nuggies

    "murder her to death" 10/10 will re sub

  • Tree Tree

    "HARSHLY scold you" "Im disappointed in you." :(

  • Serelor

    I always watch these videos expecting to learn something new and end up disappointed, realizing that while other people were living lives, I was on the internet learning shit people would post in videos nearly 7 years later.

  • Mr. Corner

    I could go to Tullius and not shed blood... But who doesn't want to kill the Thalmor?

  • AceofBlades X

    The thing about these secret choices is that they aren't consistent. These are the exceptions in Skyrim, a game that does not usually reward creativity in a narrative sense. Like why can't you just impose upon the Blades that you're the Dragonborn and you don't have to kill Paarthunax because you're their leader? What about instead of killing Harkon, you usurp him and become the new leader of Castle Volkihar? These choices are secret because at the point in the game that you encounter them, you've learned to stop looking for secrets, it's just a waste of time for the most part.99% of the time you'll end up following the quest markers blindly anyways, so why not go ahead and do that? ....I don't hate Skyrim I really don't, this kind of thing just kinda irks me, I've played Skyrim more than most people and discovering that these kinds of things exist for some reason annoys me more than makes me happy. Feel like Skyrim could've had better narrative and more impactful choices. Just my two cents.

  • Entity Crusher

    I killed farengar (I think I spelled it right idk) once for a reason I don't remember (some quest), and later I walked outside as per usual whistles like nothing happened. I was greeted by the friendly face that is one of the couriers and knew that either a quest was going to be announced, someone had died, or someone liked that I killed farengar. It was in fact that someone was pleased with me for killing farengar (he is a bit of a dick), and thus wanted me to come and collect a few septims for my work. Turns out I had a negative relationship with farengar, and I received a letter from myself asking to collect the reward. I was literally fucking sending a letter to myself. I honestly found it really interesting that the game manages you much like any other NPC, and keeps track of negative standing and what not. Still hilarious, but undeniably interesting.

    5:30 "all without a drop of blood beïng spilled" ‹thorald continues to kneel there surrounded by huge splatters of blood›

  • fireflocs

    Alva wouldn't need mind control to get me to serve her.

  • Hajdu Linda

    An option where Thalmor doesnt die is a bad option

  • Hydroelectric Jellyfish

    I totally ate that freaking priest, it’s 50 stamina we’re talking about here.

  • CidGuerreiro1234

    Hot damn, we're still milking this cow.

  • Jacqui H

    I have never once had to kill Hroggar to get to Alva and her journal. If you go in the middle of the day, she's asleep in her coffin and he's away working at the mill. Also, the ghost of Helgi (Hroggar's daughter) tells you that Laelette was the one that burned the house after being turned into a vampire by Alva. She writes about that in the journal too. So no, Hroggar did not kill his wife and daughter, not even under mind control. Not sure where you got that from.

  • Jesse Lindsey

    Skyrim can't exist as an independent state AND fend off the knife-eared bastards at the same time without Imperial aid. Skyrim will be exclusively for the Nords... right up until thousands of elves march into their fractured province and slaughter the tired, injured, and drunk remnants of the Stormcloak army. This civil war was exactly what the tree-molesters wanted, and the Nords' brains are too frozen to realize this. I should expect nothing more from a people who look at magic and go "AAAH SCARY GO AWAY IT'S DIFFERENT AND THUS I DON'T TRUST IT" like my great-grandfather when confronted by the electric lightbulb for the first time.


    You're a little late today

  • pwnorbepwned

    Killing the cannibals at the end of The Taste of Death with the Ebony Blade helps enhance its health drain effect without playing an evil character. Several of the cannibals can potentially trust you at the time, and you can kill trusted souls without killing innocent people.

  • KryptonianCodeMonkey

    It's not exactly the same, but I unintentionally found out that you can play through the vast majority of the game without a single dragon appearing. I played through the first time up until the Jarl of Whiterun gives you the first main questline, to go kill the dragon that would be your first in the game. Well I got turned around on the way to the tower, then found something that distracted my attention, then another, and another... I spent many many hours just exploring the landscape, doing side missions, finding words of power (without any way to use them), and just becoming stronger and stronger. All the while wondering where were these dragons that I'd heard about online that were supposed to randomly spawn? Hell even the markers with dragons on them didn't have dragons. WTH? Finally, after exploring the entire map and doing countless sidequests, I went back to actually do the main story line. "Hey! A dragon! Hey a dragon soul! Hey I can use these words I found now! Hey randomly spawning dragons (that are super easy to fight now because my stats are so high)!!" Turns out you can explore and grind without fear of dragons if you just don't do that quest.

  • basteanjosh

    Maybe it was possible on this (heavily) modded copy of the game, but you can’t take the “peaceful approach” to saving Thorald. Even though the dialogue options are there, they never finished coding it into the game. It’s impossible to get the letter that would allow you to get by the Thalmor peacefully; Tullius will always refuse to give it to you, no matter what you do, which is why it isn’t offered as an option in the quest log.EDIT: even adding the letter to your inventory via console won’t get the Thalmor to let you through. It’s just a mod you had installed.

  • Yenastuundepaspris55

    ''You can get kicked out of a guild''-How... How is that even a ''secret'', in the game, by ANY kind of definition ? I'm serious. How did that make it to 'any' spot in this list ? It's one of the most basic things that can happen to you in the game.

  • Lucy Price

    It isn’t a Skyrim video without Nate saying MURDERED TO DEATH!

  • DuncanDeez

    bro wtf how many mods do you have installed lol it looks like a cartoon

  • Titanic

    Meeko. The dog. You can find her on a path near solitude. When you grab a horse from the stables, down the hill hitting the horse, swim across the lake swim to the cabin and FOLLOW The path To the stone road and look over you’ll see a dog laying there or in the cabin so look threw it. You have to follow her to the cabin if she’s not there. Then you can adopt her. Her cabins called Meekos cabin.

  • DarkKnightXavier

    By far, one of my favorite things I discovered in my third playthrough was not having chosen a side in the civil war when I was making my way through the main quest. Instead of needing to finish off your opponent before facing Alduin, you actually get to take an active role in negotiations between Tulius and Ulfric. The lines of dialogue going this route are some of my absolute favorite in the game and include the ability to flip the allegiances of key cities multiple times during your gameplay, allowing you to experiment with having both sides' leaders as your ally. In the end, you can actually put an end to the civil war altogether without needing to slaughter everyone in your wake. That being said, I'm all for killing them all and letting Sovngarde sort 'em out.

  • Goose McBruce

    but.. why would you not murder the Thalmor?

  • Antonio Camacho

    The politically correct term isn't "kill" it's "murder to death"

  • Elephants Are Cool

    Also as for the vampire quest. If you talk to that guy's new girlfriend who turns out to be a vampire when you are a vampire. She will just straight out tell you that she is a vampire. Unfortunately it doesn't open up an alternative story arc. Like helping her cover-up that she is a vampire or perhaps helping the vampires wipe out the village or something. But anyway talk to her as a vampire and see what happens.


    12:32 - i just made the choice most violent and brutal. I came there, one of them said to me - enjoy the dinner (something like that) and i was.... I turned into warewolf, and killed all of them, then i was enjoing the supper. I guess nobody expected for that, sure.

  • tuxedobob2

    Holy hell, what an annoying voice. Gave up after 30 seconds.

  • local dreamer

    Pft, I fought one of the Thieves' Guild members and got kicked out once. Thing is, I have a mod that got Brynjolf to be my husband (don't ask), so as soon as I went home he got super angry and left, going back to the Guild. He didn't come back until I paid the money. Let this be a lesson: bar fights can ruin a marriage.

  • idijai

    "Choices You Didn't Know You Had", Any.

  • Red Pill

    There haven't been serious in game consequences since Morrowind

  • FlySpyGuy

    Why would I ever...ever...EVER...spare a drop of Thalmor blood? Drain it all into the dirt, and let Skyrim be free.

  • Boba Fett

    You missed that you can prevent the execution in Solitude. Attack the executioner, and then all the guards start attacking you, so he can run away.

  • Regular Original

    Knew the two last ones though, am I the only one that saves constantly in games like this to experiment? There's also more than this list tells you.

  • Free Radical

    Lol a Bethesda game with choices? Blasphemy.

  • kuroro

    What mods are you using?

  • SweetyHeaven

    So the meat in Markarth is from humans?

  • Alexander Wilson

    I'd still rather open up a can o' whoop ass on the thalmor

  • The House of Game

    Sometimes if you do something obscure you get to keep an NPC that doesn't matter wandering around with a single unique line of dialog reminding you that you did a quest there? I knew there had to be some reason people cared about this game.

  • Deadly Orange

    I killed the guards who killed Eltrys, I killed everyone in markarth who went after me. Only later did I learn that being captured was a part of the quest

  • snake and jim

    God whatever mods you're using make the game look soooo dumb

  • J

    What mods do you have active in that footage?

  • Benjamin Hilsdon


  • pikanoob

    your game looks like ass. get some better mods

  • The Annilators

    In the quest “In my Time of Need” you are taken on a rollercoaster of story that ends with you getting a choice. The Redguard Woman will tell you to kill the people that sent you after her. You can then either kill the guys who sent you after her or you can turn her in. If you kill the guys the Redguard Woman will give you a reward. If you turn the Redguard Woman in then you will he asked by the guy who gave you the quest to lead him to her. He will then cast a spell on her that freezes her and give you a reward. You can then kill him and get the reward from her as well.

  • skeXis

    Noooonononononooo.. freeing a prisoner from the thalmor in peace isnt an option.. i see thalmor i kill.. come to think of it.. if i see anything i kill.. IM the bad guy?! D:

  • Jurius Doctor

    There is also a middle-road option where you can negotiate a peaceful treaty and cooperation between the Stormcloaks and Imperials. I've done it twice.

  • Andreas Andersen

    Not really secret, I've done all of these. I even saved Magret, just casted a fireball by reflex when I saw him draw his knife. But I couldn't get the pacifist route to work on the Thalmor, when I replayed in the Legendary edition (Tullius wouldn't give the order).Also I don't consider failing a quest a secret choice. Also, you'll need Namira's ring for the Daedric-artifact-collection-trophy anyway.

  • zachary christophers

    What mods are you using for the armour and general looks?

  • Dr Teeth

    "You'll literally be kicked out of the faction". LITERALLY.

  • Animaker

    08:53 are there living corpses..?

  • Soran M. Bane

    There's also an unmarked choice in the quest Blood On the Ice in Windhelm. During the part of the quest where you're asked to go to the palace steward and accuse the court mage of the murders, you can instead confront the court mage directly about it. There, you'll learn that he's not the culprit, and he'll use his magical knowledge to predict when the next murder will take place, thus allowing you to catch the real killer quicker and giving you a chance to prevent anyone else from being killed.

  • Ghrahim Sama

    None of those were actually that secret

  • _ِ_

    4:29Whaaaaaaat?? I've been playing skyrim since release and i didn't even know about that! ;d

  • Red-Rook

    Lmfao listen to 4x speed XD

  • Don Mega

    No, the thalmor need to be killed. They're such bastards. To have a peaceful solution didn't even come to mind.

  • Greenpanda Studios

    You don’t have to tell us twice that Skyrim is a big game #10tinydetails

  • Shivering Doe

    i feel like my game is kinda bugging? in the quest with eltyris. Ive reached the point where hes supposingly dead. but instead of getting arrested there are 2 normal guards and one weird commander ..emmanuel whatever, and they will just tell me to leave. if i attack them i can kill anyone besides the commander or whatever he is. I am stuck there i really dont know what to do, and if i get myself arrested , by attacking them nothing will happen to the quest, it still says, go and talk to eltyris..really annoyingggg

  • Johnny Casteel

    You have wasted your life

  • XoRandomGuyoX

    Hroggar's path has a no combat option too: chop wood and sell it to him to become his friend, wait until nightfall for Alva to go to the tavern, walk into Hroggar's house and he simply has a few words with you but otherwise lets you walk out with the journal, once you have the journal Alva will run to the lair, due to Bugthesda's coding though she won't be hostile to you and will actually help you fight the other vampires, after the quest is concluded she'll walk back to town like nothing happened. The end.Thorald's quest never had the non-violent option implemented by Bethesda. Fan mods did that later.


    As far as I remember, "Missing in action" was unfinished quest line (as the alternative way of getting the letter did not work, you had to kill the guards at the tower), so far as it seems, it's either DLC I have not played or it's a mod. In fact even Wiki says that.
