During the course of adventuring, players may sometimes find themselves in a state where an NPC that is indicated on the map is not in that same location within the world. As ever, we encourage players who may be temporarily stuck, to reference the game walkthroughs available online to ensure that the quest is proceeding correctly. If you believe that the NPC you are looking for has not correctly spawned in, it is possible that a game error has occurred.
In the case of an NPC not appearing where it should, here are some common workarounds:
- Try changing the difficulty of the game (from within the in-game options).
- Leave the specific area in question, and attempt to approach the NPC location more slowly, or from a different path or entry point.
- Retry from an older save that is unaffected by this error.
