I'm playing Skyrim on the PS3, and I have Uthgerd the Unbroken following me, who will attack me if I commit crimes against residents of Whiterun. Is there a way I can kill people without her attacking me? Because I really want Nazeem and the Talos preacher guy dead, but I don't want to have to either kill Uthgerd, or make her go home every time I want to murder someone.
Uthgerd will only turn on you if you're caught committing a crime (gain bounty). It's not a problem if Uthgerd witnesses it as long as it's not detected (seen/heard) by other NPCs. Here are a few things you can try:
- A frenzy spell does the trick for me. Once they're frenzied you can kill them in view of everyone or let other NPCs do it for you. Spell casting is silent with quiet casting (illusion perk).
- Knife them in their sleep. Dagger attacks are silent.
- Bow sneak attacks work but are not silent like the above methods.
I've tested all this in game to confirm that Uthgerd does not go hostile. Good hunting.
