Hey a few times now I've killed a dragon and his soul won't come out. Each time this happens I reset from an older save just in case, so it hasn't happened consecutively but it does seem to happen on the same dragons. For example I killed the dragon near Azura's shrine but I didn't get his soul so I reset and just went somewhere else. Later I went to Azura's shrine and after killing him, same thing. Am I not supposed to get his soul? This also happened to another dragon yesterday but I forget the name of the location (it was on top of a mountain and there was a dragon shout there). Is this a glitch or am I not supposed to get certain dragon souls?
actually happened to me once. killed a dragon, didn't get its soul. it just laid there dead. --- Fly Eagles Fly, On the Road to Victory! http://last.fm/user/xdevilbunny || http://rateyourmusic.com/~VelociBrad
I've had this happen where I killed the Dragon at Azura's shrine before getting the bounty quest, absorbed his soul just fine.. went and turned in the Bounty quest I didn't yet have (auto complete basically), then picked up the bounty quest again.. so I went back to the location, killed another dragon, and when he died I didn't get to absorb his soul. He didn't even start disintegrating, just like a normal body.
I think it happens when you kill a zone-specific dragon, where theres only supposed to ever be 1 dragon at that point, and then for some reason go back and kill that same dragon.. I don't exactly know if this is correct, but it's what I gathered.
