  • In the bug of Kaliah walking off instead of opening the gate, this is happening on the PS3. How do we fix it? I tried reloading to a previous time and turning off the system and starting it back up again. Nothing is working.

    • Ok, I think I fixed it. Stand behind Karliah and Brynolf and she will turn that way to open the gate.

    • Wind your save is now gone though?

    • Same thing happens on the PC. If I stand behind her, she sidesteps around me. I tried typing that 'PRID' thing above, it said "script not found"

    • Loading earlier saves did not fix this for me on PC. I was able to complete it with no problem after shutting game down and coming here to look for a fix. So if you guys have the game alt-tabbed as you look for a solution, try shutting the game down, then restarting and loading the autosave from when you entered Nightengale Hall.

      That's what I did since I was going to resort to trying the console commands but I didn't need to. She just walked right up with no problems and opened the gate. I didn't have to block her, bump her, fus-ro-dah her or anything. Went exactly as it should have. gl

    • She pulls the chain but nothing happens, how do I force the gate open? or transport to the glyph?

    • I tried this PRID thing, didnt work, after 10 tries, I found out that you just need to stick to Karliah ass, literally. Then she will go up the stairs and pull the chain. Damn this feels good after 2 hours !

    • I was having the same problem. Try fast-waiting for a certain amount of time (I set mine for 12 hours) when I was done waiting she appeared and opened the gate. Finally!

    • My last three runs have had this same bug. this is what I've found to fix it : 

      If Karliah has walked away and you cannot find her there is a somewhat simple fix for this. This was mentioned above but let me make it a little more clear. Also, I'm playing on the PC so I don't know about the console versions.

      First off, go to the gate that is shut and open the console (press ~). Click the gate and type "disable" and hit enter. Open the console again and type, 

      "setstage tg08a 52" and Brynjolff will head to his designated spot. Now to spawn Karliah you will open the console and type "prid 00058f1a", then push enter (you should notice that this "targets" her in the console) and now you can enter the console command "moveto player" and hit enter. This will move Karliah to your location and she should automatically start to move toward the center platform and you are free to continue with the Nightingale initiation. Just go stand on your designated spot and Karliah should start to speak with Nocturnal.

    • I managed to fix this bug by restoring to a save before entering Nightingale Hall and asking my follower to wait outside. I think followers can sometimes interfere with the scripting of other NPCs.

    • Does anyone know where karliah walked off to I'm on console and if I can find her I can use the lover stone from standing stones of skyrim mod to teleport her back to the hall

      Many Thanks for this, sent a couple of hours before I thought to look on this page. Then as I worked down and still nothing I was getting "a little upset". Yours worked first time. Many Thanks again.

    • If you are on xbox one you can download a mod here: https://bethesda.net/en/mods/skyrim/mod-detail/4054804 . Karliah will be found at snow veil sanctum if she walks off. you can use this mod to teleport her to the chain and she will just go ahead and pull it when you do so

    • I wonder if a simple recycleactor command (used to resurrect npcs) will work need to test it though

    • An easy way to counter this bug is:

      1. Accept the terms, than immediately speak with Karliah, block her path, do everything to delay her. This will let Brynjolf to reach the gate before her.

      2. Once Brynjolf is at the gate, let her go. She will walk to the chain and pull it toopen the gate.

      3. After she opens the gate, talk to her again to prevent Karliah from pulling the chain a second time. Otherwise she will close the gate immediately after she opens it. Also, make sure Brynjolf cross the gate.

      There you go. The normal quest resume.

    • For PS4 users: Download the mod destructible Doors and furniture. And just destroy the gate before you put on your armour. Good luck Nightingales!

    • Immediately after accepting the terms hit Karliah with Unrelenting Force to knock her down. When she gets up, then she'll go pull the chain.

    • For XBOX ONE, I hit ehr with flames until she attacked me, and my followers killed me. I resurrected her, and everything was back to normal. Believe me, I know the pain you people went through.

    • disable the gate via console, hit Karliah with Unrelenting Force, then setstage tg08a 52, and voila

    • ive tried evrey thing she just walks off and does not come back

    • to fix it all you have to do is make sure that brynjolf makes it to the door before her by standing in front of her

        Loading editor
    • After multiple attempts, I found the fix. Immediately cancel the conversation with Karliah after responding with "Yes, I am ready". Then just wait for her to pull the chain.

    • So I have waited for like 2 full days for her to pull the chain, and never did.... i also do not have my save of when we went into the cave, so now what should I do??
