Hey there, Skyrim brother and sisters. :]
I'm playing Skyrim for the third time and recently finished the main questline. I am in the Stormcloak Rebellion (by accident, ugh) and finished this as well. I've done all guilts, except the Dark Brotherhood and I use mods, which I will list later. Oh and I'm in level 37, with all three DLCs.
All good, so far; I read the book, the quests begings and I get the blade and all. I have hired two times the mercenary from Riften and one another from Whiterun, but no one uses the Pilar of Sacrifice. All say "Okay, got it" or "Will do" and just stand there. I tried killing them and they din't even die.
I even tried to restart the quest, using console commands, because I read that it can be the very last chance to make it work. I can't load an old save cause I've done far too many things to lose them. But I need the Ebony Mail. :/
I use the following mods: (In case this is the problem)
