This has been spawned by me having two aggravating bugs happen to me just today. So, the question is this: what's the most frustrating/game breaking glitch you've had in an Elder Scrolls game?

I'll start with two:
1. Personally, I REALLY hate the glitches that prevent you from finishing a quest. One of the problems I had today is preventing a puzzle door in Skyrim not wanting to open like it should, preventing me from doing the quest "Forbidden Legend".

2. I can't remember if it was Skyrim or Oblivion, but sometimes when using a bow the arrow would fly directly to the left for a split second before flying foreward. This has caused me to miss a few times as well as being incredibly immersion breaking.

Skyrim is where all the bugs are at.

Markarth bug - Guards suddenly did not like me. Attacked forever...
Bug fixed when I demoted the guards to corpses and gave the city to a new Jarl.

When I started a new character, Ralof just stood at the entrance to the tower, yelling "Come on, get over here!"

I was right in front of him and he still didnt move, and I think Alduin might have actually left, and before that, I think he'd pretty much killed everybody.

And Penitus Occulatus people would just randomly spawn as enemies in the Solitude Windmill. I couldn't smith or wait. And then it turns out they're the guards' enemies, too. And so at least half of all the guards in Solitude are just standing at the staircase, doing absolutely nothing. I managed to the top, and the people are just standing there and I start attacking them and they still just stand there.

One day, I was jumping on the well in Whiterun (please tell me I'm not the only one who does that) and I ACTUALLY FELL THROUGH THE WELL. There was a ring at the bottom, which would have been a nice Easter egg if I could have gotten out of the thing.

And another time I. Whiterun, I fell through the freaking ground.

Half the time, when I kill dragons, I don't absorb the soul.

A slaughter fish came out of the water and started chasing me.

My armoured frost troll went rouge for no reason when I was attacking Volkihar Keep.

One of the swords I got from the Deathbrand quest disappeared one day from its display case.

Everything in display case falling to the floor.

Arrow not going further than a couple meters when the bowstring is fully pulled back.

NPCs not jumping when they should (not necessary bug/glitch, just annoys me)

Horrible frame rate in the Rift for some reason.

Skjor came back to life and started calling me names when I was the HARBINGER.

When I'm moving, my controller stops working, and I keep moving in the direction I'm going, sometimes falling off of mountains.

Just a few, I guess, but they still bother me.

The dragons that guard the words of power respawn after a bit. If you kill them again you don't get a soul off of them though. They like to fly around at times too, so you may just be wandering to close to their word and they attack you.

The most annoying bug for me has to be when I fire an arrow at a bandit and it goes right through their chest.... Have to love Skyrim hit boxes.

I also love the mods that corrupt my saves, they're real fun.

The infamous Void from Daggerfall probably has to top my list. It might be interesting if you prepared yourself to use it intentionally, but most of the time it just results in a perfectly good playthrough ending randomly and making me reload. And it used to happen a lot in the old unpatched versions of the game back in 1996 and such...

The first time I played through Dawnguard I wanted to join the vampires, so I accepted Lord Harkons gift, but then all the other vampires tell me that I havelost my vampirism and that I need to go beg Lord Harkon to turn me back. Lord Harkon still thinks I'm a vampire though so I can't do anything about it. *sigh*

Another one happened yesterday, actually. My first time I had complted Dragon rising ever since I downloaded dragonborn, and the dragon outside Whiterun didn't give me his soul. I completed the quest thorough console commands, and kept going. My next three dragons didn't give me any souls either, and one of them got snatched by Miraak to boot. Fixed it by downloading the unofficial dragonborn patch.


If an argonian turned into a werecrocodile would there be any difference in appearance? Like, at all?

The two most annoying one's for me was in Skyrim.


1: I mounted on a horse and my character turned invisible and I wasn't allowed to get of.

2: I finished killing a wolf and for some reason my shield was about 5 meters on my top left but moving like it was on me.

Skyrim is the worst for bugs, during the Forbidden Legend quest when you defeat all the clones of that one guy they all FUS RO DA'd me at once and was forced THROUGH THE FLOOR!!!! and during Dawnguard my character became a vampire and a equipped the thieves guild hood and my head disappeared hood and all. and very early on when the game was still new I got shot by an ice spike and it was forever stuck in my char's face.
