SPOILERS! Diplomatic Immunity quest glitch

#1zallaadPosted 11/10/2011 10:03:34 AM
Just wondering if anyone else has managed to complete the quest "Diplomatic Immunity", where you have to infiltrate a party and then sneak around and gather information about the dragon attacks.

I found this mission extremely buggy;
- You have your items taken off of you which you are supposed retrieve about five minutes later from a chest before sneaking around the manor. The chest is always empty for me, but whenever I open it, I get the update "Optional: Retrive Items complete" for my quest log, even though I didn't get my items back. I have tried numerous saves and reloads but it continues to happen to me. To combat this, I decided to leave all of my items somewhere else and just do the mission without my items, but at least they weren't lost to some mystical void of nothingness.

-After continuing through the quest and sneaking past the first two guards, I came to a magician standing deadlocked facing a wall, in the direction I'm supposed to go. I let him have five minutes of seeing if he would walk away, which he did not. Instead I was forced to sneak past him at a snails pace and eventually made it past.

-After retrieving the various information and dossiers, I then found it impossible to leave the mansion from any route, though it probably didn't help that I had the entire crew of guards and mages chasing me. I then had to reload to an hour previous to that quest.

tl;dr The mission needs fixes and I hope bethesda releases a patch in the next... few minutes or so.

I think you're right: Goku would beat Superman.

Of course, there isn't any argument

Not sure if you know this, but you don't need to sneak past. You can, if you want, go in all swords blazing and hack the elves to pieces, it won't make a difference.

Not sure about your other problems, though.

The chest should only have items if you gave them to that guy in Solitude.
