As many may, or may not, know the Waking Nightmare quest is bugged and if you follow Erandur into the temple too quickly, he disappears. I, unfortunately, didn't realize and just left and continued to do other stuff, hence overwriting my AUTOSAVES. My question to the board is this:
1. Is there any other way to fix this bug? -or- 2. Any way to start the quest over?
There's some bug info here: http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Waking_Nightmare#Bugs
But I don't know that it'll help you since I assume you've tried fast traveling and moving in and out of the temple a few times. --- You can't make an omelette without crushing dozens of eggs beneath your steel boot and then publicly disemboweling the chickens that laid them as a warning.
URRRRGGGGH this glitch sucks so bad. Spent like 30 mins looking in every corner of the temple trying to find a switch or anything. I figured that the wall behind the podium has to open somewhere but I guess since I followed the dude in there immediately I missed out. This really sucks. So I guess I cannot do any more missions in Dawnstar until this is fixed. i'm already at level 30 so I am not starting a new game. Playing on 360 BTW.
Anyone else have any luck getting this quest unglitched without starting over or reloading a prior save? --- ~Look at me, I eat snakes and run backwards~
Yep happened to me as well......This is major ***! --- I got reset, however they didnt reset my deaths, so at this point in time i have 148 kills and 6169 deaths, which gives me an epic k/d of 0.02! - Phil
