Random difficulty chest.

Villager:
Swamp Rescuer achievement.

Surreptitiously Shadowed Locations:
Argonian:
Help lighting the bonfire.

Altmer:
Help finding the way back to Lilmoth.

Bosmer:
Help understanding the rules of hip and tail ball.

Imperial:
Help stealing the coin pouch.

Choixth:
Surreptitiously Shadowed achievement.
An easy way to get this is to find her at Blackrose Wayshrine, talk to her. Use the wayshrine to teleport somewhere else in Murkmire and right back.
You can keep doing this until you are done with the achievement.

    Hey,

    how do these rescueable argonians look like? I have been roaming the map quite a lot, and never seen one. Is it possible to just walk through them without noticing?

    I do have found a guarded chest at your south-eastern pin point though.

    The villagers look like tied up argonians, sitting, kneeling, or cowering.
    Once you're close enough they get a white arrow above their head, to show you they need help.
    They are being attacked by two to three enemies, like other argonians, Blackguards, or Murkmire wildlife.

    Good luck!

    Ok that white arrow sounds hard to miss, so I have just been unlucky. I'll try again.
    Thank you!

    To give you an idea of what to look for, the arrow is the same as the beggars across the base game zones for the Give to the Poor achievement.
    But they are hard to miss, seems you have been unlucky.
    They also yell for your help ingame, if you don't have your sound muted it's really useful, as finding them by sound is usually easier than spotting them.
    And the good thing is you only need four of them, and not all six.

    Are the argonians limited to one per location? or can they pop up in the same spot multiple times?

    You're able to rescue all of them on the same spot, multiple times.

    This Swamp rescuer achievement is 100% impossible. I have farmed all the spots, and found an additional one, with no NPC needing help ever. There are 3 enemies guarding a chest at the spots, but never a villager. The spawns are on a 50 - 60 min timer.
    At this point I'm convinced its broken. At least for me, the beggar achievement NPC has only Proc'ed twice in 3 years playing that I could interact with & give gold to. But there are beggar NPC in every town and the audio is always there, just can't interact. I felt there was something wrong with that, so it could be me. Best wishes to ANYONE who can rescue even one.


    Edit: after 2 days I finally got 1 rescue....maybe there is hope....but it still is an appalling villager npc spawn rate...../rant

    Hey I did the swamp rescuer achievement within a couple of hours.
    It’s popped saying I have completed it but I still have rescue dead water villager and rescue copper-eyes villager left to do. The rest I did within two hours. I took various screenshots and each location I came across and used the above map. I started from the bottom and just went to each one. When I got to the last I teleported to another area ( Shadowfen ) and back to Murkmire and repeated the process.

    Regarding the ‘ surreptitiously shadowed ‘ achievement. Again I came across a few that have spawned that you can speak to but none which has been Choixth as of yet.

    Update completed surreptitiously shadowed. There is no spawn time it seems. I just kept going to all points throughout the day

    thank you for the tip OP. I found her on the black rose wayshrine and did like you said. At some point it was a little buggy and I had 4 of her and hard to speak with her, but Imanaged after some porting to finish the achievement. havent found any people in help yet (except the other wold events with fire, and tail-ball etc.. )
    edit: just while a was writing one spawned! waiting on the spots seems to help!

    Ive gotten 1 of these randomly a couple of days go and been running from one spot to the next to the next.

    Are these broken or do they only spawn 1 a week or what?

    How long are we supposed to run circles around this map to get this stuipd achievement done?
    Ive finished all the quests and most everything else...this is just.....boring

    I had best luck by camping a spot for a bit and also logging out - logging in there. The spawn east of Lilmoth in my opinion was the best location. It has 4 scuttleblooms around it to farm while you wait. I sold 2 and kept 2.

    My achieve completed with 2 short. I camped a bit longer to finish properly.

    @Katahdin its not a fast achieve. I camped a bit daily for more than a week.

    Wait...on the map for Surreptitiosly Shadowed, you mention the spawns such as the Argonians deciding whether to light the bonfire, the irate High Elf, etc... I've seen these spawns and interacted with them. What do these have to do with the Shadowscale???? I haven't seen any Shadowscale at these locations?

    EDIT: Oh I see. Sometimes it will spawn a random interaction with people taking to each other (like in Wrothgar when you wanted to find the elderly Orc Warrior for One Last Brawl, but you keep finding those stupid hunter vs herder spawns). I did FINALLY see Choixth after many days of searching. The map helped a lot. Thanks!

    Are those of you having trouble with the Swamp Rescuer achievement on PS4? I've been doing at least 2 dailies each day in that zone and only found 3 villagers on the achievement list so far. Several of the locations on the map above are right near the roads so I stop by every time I pass them. Whatever is supposed to trigger the event is just not happening most of the time. I camped out at the location near Lilmoth for over an hour and saw nothing. Whenever I see a new event at a location I previously had success, the villager I rescue is one I already had, so even though I have actually rescued about 7 villagers I have only 3 unique ones.

    I remember the Choixth achievement in Summerset, the forums here said just move a little distance away after each encounter and return and she will be there, but it does not work that way on PS4. Once the interaction is complete, no one reappears. It might take an hour, and then it could be one of the other random encounters. Most of the time there is no one at the possible locations when you get there. I spend an entire afternoon circling Summerset wayshrines before I was able to finish that one, but it was far easier than this one. However, I saw a video of someone on PC getting all Choixth interactions in Summerset within 5 minutes.

    Could it be that something in the way the code is being executed on PS4 is not allowing these events to occur as they should? I've spent hours circling the Murkmire locations in a clockwise direction, in a counter-clockwise direction, and just randomly doing nothing but trying to get this achievement. I have also done all the story quests and enough other quests to get the Friend of Murkmire achievement. After all that time in the zone you would think I had gotten this achievement by now. What else does one have to do to get the Swamp Rescuer achievement?

    I think the events are actually occuring as they should on PS4, and not on PC. It's just that not working as it should is helpful with that we are able to get several spawns out of one.

    Lucky for you only four are needed for the achievement. Tried farming for a timer with some friends on different locations and events, but no pattern I could see yet. Did update the maps with some more spawns for both achievements. Should make your runs a little easier.

    Still not seeing activity at the swamp rescuer locations, only once saw Blackguards but no captive since my post. That was the only time I've seen anything east of the Dead-Water Village. I have never seen anything near Sweet Breeze Overlook. It seems that the locations in which I have found a villager just have the same villager if I go there again. In-game achievements shouldn't rely so heavily on pure luck and sheer boredom of sitting around.

    Funny that the Surreptitiously Shadowed achievement was so easy compared to this. I had 4 Choixth by the time I finished and had to figure out which one to talk to. Now that I'm done with quests, I feel there is no way I will spend enough time there to get this done.
