I have a frustrating issue. The first quest I've done for the fighter's guild in cheydenhall has resulted in a crash to desktop when trying to progress past giving the three guild members their weapons. the second they have their weapons it just goes down. any help would be appreciated. I have no other mods installed. no texture mods either.
Sorry to hear that. This particular quest has always been a bit buggy, and you're not the first to experience this issue. From what I can tell, if certain mobs load in the cave area it will crash (usually about 5 seconds after you enter the cave). The only solution I'm aware of is to travel to a different part of the map, wait 3 days, then travel back and re-attempt the quest. It may take several tries, since the game loads NPCs in the cave randomly. Most people just move on to a different quest, then come back after several days and periodically try it. Keep at it until you can enter without crashing, then you'll be able to complete.
If you have further issues, please join my Discord (listed on main page) for continued support, thank you.
