Tried it again today, this time getting Ifan first before any other companions, the way it worked for me the first game.
Ifan STILL just stands there (unless i let HIM lead). He is broken, will NOT follow me.
I know others are having this same bug. Really wanted Ifan as my conjurer, since he has that wolf he can summon, plus i like him.
Dang it, can we get this fixed? Looks like i will have to start the whole game over and then HOPE he will follow next time, or just abandon him as a companion, or let him lead constantly, but that won't work well, need my ranger to lead and look for traps, etc.
