Hi

right now i`m in Riften`s underground and have located Esbern in the Rat Warren and trying to complete the quest "A cornered rat" .. Have found esbern`s door, spoke to him and answered that Delphine sent me and that he should remember the 30th.. He said that I should come in but the door is not opening at all! Even tried to unlock it via console command but nothing happens.. Door still keeps closed.

I then tried to get into his room by TCL (toggle clipping mode command) and I got into it, but i`m not able to speak with him at all.. He just ignores me.

Is already a cheat for complete quest available? -_-

I'm also having the same problem, i've tried everything >_< surely they're must be a way round it as I've see no reviews complaining about it.

Have found a possible solution!!!!!

I finished brynjolf quest where you have to collect money for him first (from the 3 shop owners) after that I returned to Esbern`s door and it was open!

I found a solution! :) Use the "movetoqt mq202 1" command so that you get into the room. Unequip any weapons you have equiped so you only have your fists to hit with. Hit him down some times and he may open the door so that you can talk to him. I got him to open it after beating him three times.

He barely does any damage to you so just keep hitting him, and also if anyone wonders... He wont die by the beating.

Hope this helps you all!

Also off-topic, he talks way too fast!

Managed to get the door open playing with quick saves/loads and wait(T key) and manage to escort him. But he's now completely silent(SPOILER: he's playing big role next up) and that kills the whole atmosphere of the game. I don't even see subtitles of him :/ Anybody?
