Today we have a guest post by SEOno about a hilarious way to fix a glitch in Skyrim!
For all its charm, Skyrim is a helluva glitchy game. Perhaps one of the most worrying bugs I’ve come across – as I thought I’d have to restart my game file – is the missing follower glitch, which is when your follower disappears but they haven’t died, so you’re unable to recruit a new one, however you’re unable to find them absolutely anywhere, leaving you followerless (if that’s even a word).
Sometimes fast travelling to a new location can fix it – they’ll just ‘catch up’ to you. Also, certain quests replace your follower with another one: this is the case with Proving Honor, with Farkas replacing your follower, however Farkas meets you at the quest location (rather than following you there), which has ended up confusing people and wondering why they can’t recruit a new follower in the meantime.
For me however… I lost my follower and I searched everywhere to try and find them. I nearly gave up until I accidentally stumbled upon the solution in the funniest circumstances possible.
