I have noticed a problem with the Tel Mithryn magic lift as Lydia goes up first but when I get to the top myself she is not there, but appears afterwards, coming up again in the lift but has been injured. I think she is jumping down again to be next to me before I get to the top. Has anyone else had this problem and is there a way to prevent it without leaving Lydia behind?

  • Ok, it looks like the only solution is to leave Lydia next door with the Alchemist Vendor while I go up to talk with Neloth. It’s a pity that the door script makes the companion always travel up first.

  • I had the even more irritating scenario of my follower pushing me straight off the ledge to my death as soon as I got to the top of the lift. This happened three times before I shouted her across the room and ran deeper into the dwelling.

This appears to be fixed in the latest Unofficial Dragonborn Patch 2.0.3.


This is currently a bug in skyrim, and the only way to fix it is to download a mod called Unofficial Dragonborn Patch. If you're on PC I would recommend you download all of the patches, as it fixes a lot of the common bugs! :)
