Enchanted Arms challenge bug

I had the Enchanted Arms challenge active and then enchanted a shield, which should classify as a weapon. However when I returned to Captain Randolph to turn in the challenge it still said progress 0/1. Do shields not classify as “weapons” for the purposes of this side quest? You can block, parry, and shield bash so it seems like it should.

Another issue with Enchanted Arms challenge:

I randomly completed it when I killed an enemy? I think it triggered when the Enchanted item dropped?

I also had an issue with this challenge:

I accepted the challenge.
Left Sacrament towards the Nameless Pass.
Interacted with the Cerim Whisper in the cave.
I completed the challenge.


Mine have randomly completed while in sacrament. No activity on my part.

@RomoloHero This happened to me today with the “Unholy Plating Challenge.”

@regiss had something similar as well:

I just had this too.

I think what happens is that if you find an enchanted weapon (i.e. it appears in your inventory) the quest completes.
For me it just completed when i found an enchanted Staff.
