I went to Riften during the main quest line, and found Esbern. However his dialogs have no voice at all and even if I can "talk" to him, he doesn't open the door. What can I do?


I am playing Skyrim Legendary Edition on PC.

    Are you even on the quest to find him? What quest are you trying to complete? – Nelson Aug 23 '17 at 4:24
  • Unsure why the downvotes - what's wrong with the question? @Nelson He is trying to complete the quest A Cornered Rat and Ethan speaks of a genuine bug that has plagued the game since release. My answer provides a simple solution. – Kallum Tanton Aug 23 '17 at 11:41

This is an issue that many people have had since the game's release. Fortunately a kind modder over at the Nexus created a fix - this worked for me when I had the same issue: Esbern Voice Fix by Firestar 0507.

Just download and install with the mod manager.
