Dragonborn: Storn won't read the book and many other bugs.
Dragonborn is bug-ridden and though I've found ways around many of the story-breaking bugs, I've been inable to figure out how to progress past this one without skipping a part of the questline. I've quicksaved just before talking to Storn about Hermaes Mora and every time I go back to the save and hand him the book, he walks a few feet out, talks to Fraea, then won't read the book. He simply stands there.

I've also found a bug with the magic elevator in the Telvanni Mage's house. It simply won't work. I activate it, it zooms out on my character, then nothing happens. I've been getting around this by turning off collisions, but it gets really buggy.

Just delete FNIS it seems to interfere with the new animations that Dragonborn added, I am however still confused about the bug I'm having that pretty much breaks dragon riding...
SevehnStar Feb 6, 2013 @ 9:50am 
I don't have FNIS and never have.

i dunno. its funny how no bugs were fixed virtually all the same bugs plagued the 360. kinda annoying that the bug is on a main quest line not some side quest

I've got the same problem. You can complete the quest by using the console but then you still have to add the shout, and that doesn't seem to work.

Although this may obviously skip a part of that quest, the getstage/setstage commands of the console might be helpful. Either reset the whole quest, set it slightly before the incident or set it one stage after the incident. As for the stage id you'd need, you could check out and see if they already have something on it or try it out yourselves.

However, considering how buggy Dragonborn is, it might be a bad idea to mess with the console too much. But, it could also lead to some hilarious, gamebreaking stuff...

At any rate, save before you try it!

well If you do setstage DLC2MQ05 700 then do 750 to make the guy die you learn the last shout and if you do setstage DLC2MQ05 1000 you complete the quest so you can go onto the next quest.

I have had no problems with game breaking bugs, but then I do have the unoffical dragonborn patch
