  • I have discovered a bug in the mission 'Blindsighted' when you enter the tomb to fight Mercer, the eyes of the Falmer OR Mercer aren't there. I need a fix for this ASAP.

      Loading editor
    • This never happened to me, but if it means that much, try reloading it.

        Loading editor
    • Reloading is a good idea, there are lots of bug listed here (click show to open the list) have a look though and maybe you can stop it happening again.

    • just type on console

      setstage tg08b 40

        Loading editor
    • Which was also on the bugs list but they may not be on the PC.

    • he wont show up even if i set the stage

    • I have a bug also with mercer frey After he retrieves the Eyes he starts walking to the spot to talk to Karliah Brynjolf and me and freezes half way inbetween glithing up and down. Im on the 360, is there any fix, I have a save right before opening the door.

    • Quest-breaking glitch: Just before the final battle with Mercer, upon entering the room where he removes the eye from the statue, the player may become stuck, unable to move, interact, or open up the tab menu. This may be fixed by entering tcl using the console when the map loads, then deactivating it if the issue is not fixed yet. But how do I tcl if I am on the Xbox 360???????

        Loading editor
    • You can't. Only PC players can tcl. Try re-loading. If it fails, try restarting the console.

    • It worked out by writing in a console - setstage tg08b 40 (go to console by pressing keyboard button in lef top corner ~). At first time something went wrong anyway, so I tried once more time and it worked. Thanks a lot guys.. ;)

    • Doesn't work for me. Lucky you. No matter what I try it's still broken. I tried everything I would need to. TCL to look for him if he isn't even spawned in there. The Setstage trick. And more. But I tried everything which would relate to Mercer not spawning in. Hell, I left my computer on for four hours before entering the tomb area, still didn't work. What's strange about it is that it only happens to me when I use the Argonian race. It didn't happen for Imperial, Nord, or Dark Elf. (NOTE: I have done this quest 2 times with Imperial, 1 with Nord, and 1 with Dark Elf. And I tried it 3 times with Argonian and EVERY TIME, it broke) Could it be a racial glitch with the bug?

    • there is another glitch that is broken for me when i killed mercer the key is not on him and he inly drops one eye the right one pls help i dont know how to fix this (i am on pc)

    • The setstage trick gets me unfrozen, but Mercer still isn't actually there. I heard his voice talk, but he's invisible or something. I used player.placeatme to spawn him and kill him, but it's like I just killed a copy of him. His "clone" doesn't have the Eyes of the Falmer on it, and it doesn't register that I killed him, anyway.

        Loading editor
    • Because using placeatme spawns copies, not the original. You have to use his RefID and the command moveto.player instead. Also, he's supposed to go invisible but only briefly. He's scripted to use an invisibility spell.

    • I'm trying some fixes now, I'll update incase anyone else needs it. I'm not sure if I will get it to fix or not fyi.

    • IN ORDER. Type into the console "SetStage TG08B 50", "player.additem 0003a070 1", "SetStage TGlarceny 80", and "player.additem 0001994F 1".

      Then, after doing all of that :

      Use TCL go up through the roof where some boulders are go through it, go to the next area then go straight (Still in TCL) go where you see blood on the ground (deactivate TCL). Then type into console player.placeatme 0001B07F. That should start Karliah's dialouge, it worked for me and she gives you the (Spoiler) "item". Then it should be fine all the way through. Hope this helps.

      Also, I just found Mercer in the Thieves guild.... kill him there and he has literally everything you need. So I guess.. you can TCL out of the cavern fast travel to the guild kill him and take the things. Then return to the cavern.

      For some reason, I was unable to Wait or Sleep on any location, even on my house.

      My bug is that, when I enter the Sanctuary, it's already filled with water and I am unable to do anything.

        Loading editor
    • The problem when he walks into the wall is that Brynjolf and Karliah don't spawn in. I fix that by waiting an hour before you go into the sanctuary, and then they should spawn in normally. My issue is that the Eye doesn't prompt me to deliver to Delvin- and that's all I'm missing on my shelves, because this is the save I got the Crown of Barenziah.

    • I did all the steps and I'm at the blood spot in the last room before exiting and all Karliah will say is "this place is coming down, let's get out of here" over and over. I've left and fast traveled. I've waited. I've reloaded. the same thing continues to happen :(

    • ok so i have a glitch where i enter the cutscene where mercer frey is taking down the eyes of the Falmer and after mercer says that karliah can't sneak up on him no more dialog is happening. There is still sounds as i can hear the music in the room but thats it, nothing else happens. I've loading the last save i had (which is right outside the door) and re-entering but nothing happens. Has this happened to anyone else and how do i fix this?

      also brynjolf and karliah dont move outside the door to the cutscene and when i do go in the words 'your follower cannot accompany you here'. something similar to me happened in the dragon rising quest where you investigate the dragon, i dont absorb the soul of the dragon and all of the npc's stay crouched no matter how far from them i am. Could someone help?

    • FOR ANYONE STILL TRYING TO FIGURE THIS OUT!

      I am playing on Special Edition with the unofficial patch installed. I am unsure whether you need that for this to work.

      If you enter the room and Mercer does not spawn but still speaks, you are probably stuck after he says "you cant get the drop on me"

      The solution is easy. Open up the console command box with `

      "prid 00022651" "moveto player"

      That simply targets mercer and then moves him to you, the real him. So he will run up to the falmer eyes and the quest will continue.  DO NOT THANK ME! Thank this video from 2014.

    • I have the problem with where he sais the stuff to karliah and karliah sais somthing but hes not there and I jave tried reloading and everything and im on nintendo switch

    • Okay so I may be a few years late but, I found a way to fix the glitch if you are on xbox or playstation. The glitch will happen if you entrer the mission with a follower, so this only works if you haven't beat the mission/have a save before you find and talk to karliah. All you have to do is leave the place for 30 days (720 hours) of in-game time. The place will reset and you can talk to Karliah and finish the mission. The only thing is you HAVE to make sure you don't have a follower with you. You might be able to do it after you talk to karliah, but I haven't tried that, plus you should have an auto save before that anyways so best to be safe than sorry.

    • Ok y’all so I ran into same issue on Xbox one. And I found a cheap work around. For those of you who like to play 100% you got a decision to make. I found Mercer over in the spider cove next to where you first see him assassinate the falmer. He’s still unkillable here so I pickpocket places a paralysis potion on him and took the two eyes and the skeleton key. This gave me the updated quest to escape the area and I exited with all required items. Mercer just walked away no clue to where
