How can I kill Beitild without anyone seeing?
So I’m on the first part of the Dark Brotherhood questline, and I have to kill Beitild in Dawnstar. I’ve done it before on a previous character, but I can’t for the life of me seem to get it to work here.
I’m entering her house, under stealth, no one sees me, and I use my bow to one-shot her in the back whilst she is sleeping.
It seems that for some reason, the mage who lives in the house NEXT DOOR is a witness to my crime, despite him being in, you know, another house, and he summons the guards and tries to kill me.

The easiest solution actually is just to tell her that you are there to slay her.
She will then scream something like “Come and get me!” and attack you.
After that you can slay her without getting bothered by the guards.
I do not know if this option appears all the time though or if it’s connected to i.e. your Speechcraft skill or something else.
My preferred method of dealing with the… stickier public assassination missions is a high level Frenzy poison and the Poisoner perk from the Pickpocket skill line.
Should get you off scot free every time.
I managed to kill her in an entirely conventional way and got away with it, but not in her house but outside at the smelter. I just waited until night, when most of the other citizens where away and whacked her while no guard was looking.
You might have to try that several times, there are guards making their rounds and you don’t want to be seen by them.
I’ve found that sniping tends to work for just about any assassination that can be done outdoors, and this is one of those.
Track the target for a bit, to find a place where they are commonly seen outdoors and preferably stationary for some time. Once you’ve chosen where they will die, find a vantage point that is away from anywhere commonly trafficked by possible witnesses while still being within range and clear line-of-sight to the target. You can easily get far enough away that the NPCs won’t notice you while sneaking, and still be within arrow range.
After that, it’s just a matter of lining up your target and letting the arrow fly.
I have another way that worked for me: Cast a fire rune trap spell by the smelter where she works during the day when guards are around her. The effects are similar to casting a
I waited til night and followed her to the smelter. I then hid behind the opening between the house and the side of the mountain, waited for the guard to leave, and shot her with an arrow.
I found that you wait until night, make sure there are no guards around. Then hide between the House and mountain (the small crawl space), shoot her with your best bow and arrow, then shoot her one more time and fast travel out of there.
I stole her key, and at night went into her house when no one was looking (you usually need to do a sneak attack for no guards to notice u) and she was getting up, so i just killed her from behind :-
- Follow her into an alley
- Pull out your best bow and best arrow with good poison
- Go to sneak
- Make sure you and her are the only ones around
If you’re a werewolf you just have to realize her location and then out of sight of any guards (outside Dawnstar) transform into a werewolf. Rush into the place where you see her –> power + standard attack and then rush out again before the surrounding civilians and guards (if any) can hit you.
Once out of Dawnstar just wait somewhere out of sight to transform back into human form.
Steal her key to her house then at night kill in her room
(I dual wield and crouch and get 6x damge witch is very useful)
