Skyrim - Destroy the Dark Brotherhood

This is a video walkthrough for the Skyrim quest 'Destroy the Dark Brotherhood'. In order to go this route instead of joining the DB, you must complete the starting quest 'Innocence Lost' to wake up in the Abandoned Shack with Astrid. During 'With Friends Like These', you can choose to kill Astrid instead of the captives, starting the quest to eliminate all members of the Dark Brotherhood for Commander Maro.

The reward for this quest is a few thousand gold, multiple sets of the Dark Brotherhood armor, and a few unique, enchantable clothing items from Nazir. Compared to all of the rewards you will receive working through the Dark Brotherhood quest line, this is hardly worth it. While you may want to see this quest and how it pans out, do it on a separate save or second playthrough. The amount of content, items, gold, and experience you deny yourself by doing this is unmatched, as the Dark Brotherhood quest line is one of the longest in the game.

If you would rather join the Brotherhood, see my guide here:

  • hasty boi

    Destroying the Dark Brotherhood was little unrealistic, you just enter their sanctuary and kill them all just like that there should of been more to it, perhaps a chain of quests must be done in order to find and kill each of Dark Brotherhood member.

  • Cadsop

    I think he made this video to show us that they can't be dead thralled if you are past level 40

  • Harry Manocha

    Who else is here solely because they don't want to miss out on the rewards of the dark brotherhood, but want to know what happens

  • Fadedgogeta

    I find it funny that Astrid can kidnap you anywhere, even when you are sleeping in a bed in the Thieves Guild which usually has 3-4 people walking around the main room.

  • AndroxineVortex

    by the gods you killed the dark brother hood leader...I'll take my leave then lol

  • Barbarossa

    U get 20.000 septims for 1 missionU get shadowmere (best horse)U get 50.000 septims for all quests and little questsU get unlimited quests for 1000 septims each, later in game,U get Cicero as your companionU get dark brotherhood assasins as companionU get your own special sanctuary with special featuresU can buy rare items from little vampire U feel more secure knowing that u are the most dangerous person in all skyrim,U get emperors suitU get all of the items and money on people that u killed.Soo fuck that, l will join D&B every time 💀

  • Patriot

    Funny thing is I killed the Emperor then joined the Imperial Legion.....

  • Coca Cola

    You can either:A- Join Dark Brotherhood, and end up getting over 20,000 gold for doing their missionsOrB- Kill them all and get 3,000 gold.

  • RussianPremier

    No matter how many times I play Skyrim, the doors are creepy as F***.

  • MojaKann

    i think it would have been cooler to have to kill each assassin one at a time while they were out on a contract of their own. e.g. 'Kill Veezara before he completes his contract' or whatever, and you'd get a bonus if you did it undetected or if he didn't finish his contract idk 

  • Aryon1969

    The one person you don't get to kill is also the oldest person in that sanctuary

  • S

    what about Babette? Is it just because you can't kill child sprites?

  • Ajaax l

    The path of a true Hero is an arduous one.  I killed Astrid and destroyed the Dark Brotherhood.  Riches be damned, no one kidnaps me and tells me who to kill!

  • Professor Stein

    I wish this questline was more expanded.

  • Yeet

    Am I the only that joins, like, everything that can be joined???

  • Josh Reynolds

    the irony of stealthily assassinating the most elite group of assassins in Tamriel

  • TheDarksoul01

    normally i join them, but since i'm playing some1 fighting for the empire and the peace of skyrim i'm going to kill them :Dedit: don't forget that nazir has a curved sword. a curved.sword.

  • TwoShadez

    How could you? You're a monster!Poor Nazir.....

  • HCHS63rdWilsonZombie

    I joined the Dark Brotherhood and the Imperial....

  • Cielo Pachirisu

    To Oblivion with the gold! I won't let this gang of villains just go around and kill whoever any putz with evil rituals want. Y'know, including me.What is the music of life? Silence, my brother. The silence of the halls in your Sanctuary in a few minutes.

  • zenoist2

    That creepy lizard in Solitude is always my first pick pocket victim.

  • ogoatgod

    The actual Dark Brotherhood is more fun than brutally murdering them just for 3k gold

  • LumpinLump

    This was hard to watch. Dark Brother hood quests were some of my favorite lol

  • Joseph Pavelka

    Who else immediately thought "With friends like these... who needs anemones??"

  • Jacob Estrada

    3:20 Astrid: Well done...... That's odd

  • Gadget Master

    It's more worth it to follow the quest line of the dark brotherhood

  • Kawaii Artist

    Perks of Joining the Dark Brotherhood20,000 goldShadowmere (Horse)And infinite rewards (600 gold each time you kill someone)

  • Father Ireland

    Great video but it isn't worth it, the quests are really good, not as good as Oblivion tho.

  • Nevieth

    In fact you can actually do this to the Thieves Guild too, on one of my playthroughs I accidently smacked the main guy outside, killed him... and got a quest called "Destroy the Thieves Guild" or something like that. Pretty awesome how you can actually choose to bring forth evil like the Dark Brotherhood and Thieves Guild, or you can actually destroy them.

  • Trevor Velez

    Well the way I played it I'm dragonborn and no one kid naps me and forces me to kill someone I do what I want and when I want it. So I killed the dark brotherhood despite all the benefits

  • Tom Carter

    This cave will not be their sanctuary, but their tomb!

  • Quarion21

    After trying to raise one, we get the picture... 4 times is unnecessary

  • Josh Phoenix

    I didn't really like The Dark Brotherhood in Skyrim, they seemed more like a bunch of random loosely strung together Assassins instead of a Cult of some kind. Sad, they used to be my favourite guild in Oblivion

  • TheOnlyExpress

    Wait. So the imperials knew where the Dark Brotherhood were all along, knew the passcode, and did nothing? And why did they need Astrid dead before they could do all this?

  • trash armory

    You killed my homies that's not cool man

  • Lola Bunny

    That's it!?!? I was actually considering destroying the dark brotherhood but if that's all I get is a measly 3,000 gold then I might as well continue doing my usual routine of joining them but it does kind of sucks that you don't do any special missions after you assassinate the emperor, like with the Thieves Guild. I would have liked bringing back all the members of the dark hand, then and only then the guards of Skyrim can say the Dark Brotherhood is back and stronger than ever.

  • sam lawton

    2 brotherhood assassins have been sent to kill me before Will this mess up the Dark Brotherhood questline

  • LakituLP

    Oh shit, you can kill them?! Thank you very much for showing me, I haven´t slept for months because of them. Thank you for showing me that you can destroy the brotherhood :)

  • Jan Brüggemann

    I didn't even know this was an option

  • E RG

    naw not worth it shadow mere the wind shear and dope clothes lol just not worth it nice to know what happens if you do take this path though

  • Matshapiri Males forever

    but then you dont get that shadow horse.. 

  • Salad Tongs

    A true Nord doesn't associate with milk drinkers who hide in the shadows and fight like cowards.

  • Kvp 311

    Screw that they're awesome dude their quests are so good

  • Nicholas De Moss

    Does anybody else join the dark brotherhood just because you like being an assassin and having cool assassin friends?

  • Metalhead10000

    Hmm, kill off the DBH, get a measly 3000 gold OR follow through with the DBH quest line and receive 20,000 gold AND get to kill the cowardly emperor. Decisions, decisions...Option 2 is a waaay better payoff.

  • Hannah Emilie

    I'm glad that there is the option to do this, even though it may not be as fun or profitable. Just having the option is really great

  • Sav Leek

    my brothers and sisters all slain. 😢

  • TechGuide

    If you go with the dark brotherhood storyline its more fun and has a lot more money in it.

  • Miguel Conceição

    I don't care about 20k gold or 2 followers, i just want the mountain climber indestructible horse!!!!!!!!

  • EpicShadow Dragon

    I could never do that. I like Shadowmere and besides I love the Dark Brotherhood. Thanks veido. I always wondered what happen if you killed Astird.

  • Derek Steiner

    Hah kill the Dark Brotherhood and get only 3000?! If you side with the Dark Brotherhood you can get upwards of 20,000 with the first few quests! 

  • Sophia M

    i'm glad i killed these basterds with my werewolf powers.

  • Michael Provost

    the dark brother hood pays you way more then 3000 gold

  • Cali Squid

    "Most generous reward"3000 gold

  • Eli Kroitor

    I cant kill the vampire girl because killing children is wrong, so killing grown ups is ok? thanks bethesda! I grow all my morals from playing your games!

  • Elliot Baron

    this doesnt make sense. how do u just know where the sanctuary is. and how do u know the password. and if it were that easy to kill the dark brotherhood wouldnt the commander have just done it himself. i love skyrim but they put no thought into this at all

  • Paravant

    Dark Brotherhood gives you more than 20.00 gold and this guy... 3.000! OMG! What a waste.

  • vanessa

    I had no idea this questline was a thing, but either way Im staying with the DB because I love my crazy ol Cicero ❤️

  • Nicolás Radrigán

    I'm really torn between killing and joining the dark brotherhood. In one hand I really feel bad for the people they have you kill, I mean; assassinating a kind hearted woman on her wedding day, killing a young soldier just to hurt his father, murdering a well mannered orc chef to take his identity, and also that crazy homeless guy who lost his sister, that just left me with a sour taste.On the other hand you get a shit ton of useful rewards if you join them, like shadowmere or the spectral assassin from oblivion, a long and entertaining questline, the dark brotherhood members are evil, and yet likeable (although they all die in the end anway, except for Nazir), and you get the possibility to do unlimited assassination contracts, just for fun.Oh, and also the fact that they're crazy zealots who worship a rotting body is kind of a deterrant for siding with them, I mean, if you care about the moral stuff.

  • Marcus Shaw

    Thanks, I never knew there was a "hero" path.

  • (Noob) Master Nube

    Destroyed them all at level 6, not trying to brag.

  • Rico Von cargo

    Can get much more if you just do the darkbrotherhood quests

  • Enclaveversion

    I killed the dark brotherhood because I don't want to become hated by other characters

  • David virgillio

    I kill them because they kill the empire, if they don't kill the empire i would join them. its complicated because in the civil war i sided with the empire.

  • Nocturno

    Actually the plate he gave me is my most priced treasure

  • cristo alachouzos

    i would never do this in any play through the brotherhood is just that important to skyrim and me

  • Blue Whirlw1nd

    After you kill the lady you can just go sleep somewhere. For an hour and youll end up in the shack.
