So one day I was at the Skyforge to craft some draugr armor [I completed the Companions Questline so this isn't a mod for draugr armor]. I noticed Farkas, one of the Companions, ran up to me and started to talk to me. I exited his dialogue but then he keeps talking to me all over again. I don't have any followers with me. Farkas keeps talking to me at the same time. I can acces the Skyforge so he won't talk to me, but when I exit and smithing menu, Farkas keeps talking to me and I keep exiting the conversation. I noticed this is a bug and I don't know how to fix this. He even keeps following me in Whiterun. This is more weird I have no bounty in any of the holds, neither a Companions bounty so paying the fine doesn't work even if I commit a crime, and pay the fine.

Since this only happened in Whiterun, and not the other holds; and I don't have bounties on the holds or Companions, it isn't a duplicate of this.

    Do you have bounties in any of the other holds? Can you still fast travel?

  • This happened to me just outside of Solitude, so it isn’t a location specific thing.

  • @DGarvanski I don't have any bounties so even if I commit a crime and pay the fine the glitch still happens.

  • Try getting really close to him (like, really close, right up to him). Save the game, then restart the game and load your savegame again.

  • This glitch is different from the other people who encountered it since I don't have a bounty in the holds of the Companions.

I've had that problem before; it's usually if I steal something from the Companions. They usually kept talking to me after that until I talked to Kodlak to clear my bounty.

  • Yeah, but this time I don't have a bounty.

Okay so the only solutions I had are:

  • Killing Farkas [I want a solution without death].

  • Leaving a town for a few days [This should reset some things]. .

  • Paying the Companions bounty [I have no bounty in the Companions which is more weird].

I tried doing all the methods. Method 1 and 2 worked, but I'm more satisfied with 2. Once I did it, Farkas was back to normal going back into the mead hall.

  • Farkas can't be killed when if you try to kill him he restores his health. Dec 17, 2016 at 23:05
