My wife broke...

#1BlazingflarePosted 10/12/2012 5:22:21 AM
I recently decided to marry ysolda and she behaved completely normal. However, one day I returned from an adventure to find out she was kidnapped by bandits. So I did what any caring husband would do and rescued her.
For some reason though, now she constantly glitches out when she goes around the house. Now she constantly either shuffles in place, starts shaking violently, freezes in place, or walks backward through the house.
Has this happened to anyone else and is there a way to fix her? Because its really starting to bug me.

Oh, and sorry for any bad grammar I used, it's very late where I am right now.

Yeah my Ysolda broke too. She was kidnapped and taken to Embershard Mine, and she wasn't there when I cleared it out. I go back home, and she's there again. However, now she walks backwards only, or makes the movement like she's turning away, but then starts going backwards. I think she's been psychologically damaged by those bandits.

Lydia is my wife and I had to rescue her. As soon as I set her free she joined my party and we butchered the rest of the Bandits.

Warrior Wife FTW!

I havent had a glitch with her yet. Except for when she disappeared during a quest and didnt show back up for almost a month.

Goodbye backwards flying dragons, hello backwards walking spouses. What the hell is it with this game and things going backwards?

That pun was just BAD!

Why did Michael Jackson release an album called bad?

Because he couldn't spell terrible.

JK, i acually like his music, I wouldn't say i was a fan though, I like it, but don't love it.

I had this happen with Aela. Problem seemed to be that the quest auto-completed due to a glitch before I could actually complete the physical rescue. (This was from Embershard). I think what happens is she thinks she is still in jail (I get there and she is actually trapped behind the open cell door) and moonwalks around like in a cell.

Might not help, but what I did next play-through was make a save right after getting the ransom note. Then I stashed all my money in a chest at Lakeview Manor just to try to avoid an early grab of the 5,000 gold ransom. Then I just fast-travelled to Embershard and blasted my way through to the cell just as fast as I could. I think I also killed Rochelle the Red on the way but I'm not positive, I was just swinging away at anything in my way. I got to Aela's cell before an auto-complete and she is standing in the back of the cell with an "I knew you'd come for me" dialogue. With that I was able to free her and she returned to Lakeview behaving normally as before.

I'm not sure if any specific strategy of mine caused it to work. Important to have a save so you can try again if you get an early complete. But take heart, it is possible to successfully rescue a spouse from the kidnapping. If you don't have the save to get back to though you might be out of luck...
