Hey guys (Spoilers Below),
First time poster having an issue with Quentis Normaond in his stalker form. Essentially I finished the stalker quest, resurrected him, and used aura of command on him. He acted like a normal summon for a while, but sometime after I noticed he stopped attacking enemies and now there are limited ways of interacting with him. Poison cloud does not damage him, banish (lv 5) does not get rid of him, sleeping doesn't make him dissipate like the other summons. It seems like the root of the glitch is that some part of the game engine doesn't know he's actually there. I've found I can mouse over him and check his health, bless him, and heal him.
I think I started noticing this when I teleported into the sphere to recruit the imp council member. After the dialogue with the Queen Bee and the Wasp Mage, I saw that he would not attack anything but figured it worked out for me since I rather him not accidentally attack any bees while I finish that quest. Unfortunately I had no idea I wouldn't be able to get rid of him afterwards, so no saves before the glitch.
- V1.0062A w/o patches
- Windows 10
- DDSaveEdit to move around skill points occasionally
- Edited keylist.txt a few times
- Used new story file method to workaround failing the holy artifact quest (although did this long before stalker glitch occurred)
Ideally I'd like to just delete the NPC altogether or otherwise find a way to kill him. While the glitch doesn't break my game, it is disconcerting to see him everywhere and his large hitbox sometimes gets in the way of looting and such. Ultimately though the irony of the whole situation annoys me to no end. Thanks in advance and I'd be happy to provide anything that helps solve the issue.
