I did a miscellaneous quest and let Breylna Maryon, an apprentice mage, practice a spell on me at the Winterhold College. At the end of the quest my character was rendered invisible to me and only to me. I can still attack, be attacked, and be detected etc like normal but I can't even see the weapons I wield.

In my Active Effects it said something from her was supposed to wear off in 30 minutes so I figured it was no big deal and continued on questing. Well, I'm WAY far from there now (quite a few hours in hopes it would just eventually stop being dumb) and I still cannot see anything. I figure that it must be a glitch as sometimes when I reload my saved game my character will appear for just a moment. Perspective changing does nothing. Breylna provides no option for a fix. Nothing is working. Any suggestions?

  • you could try going back to her to complete the quest... Commented Dec 24, 2011 at 9:20
  • Does the double sexchange help you? I.e. open a console and enter sexchange twice.

If you are playing on the PC, open up the console by pressing ~, type in player.setactoralpha 100 and hit Enter.

That should make it right again.

You might be causing a bug

  • ◾Sometimes when she casts the first spell nothing will happen and you will be stuck waiting for it to wear off.(Nothing happens if you wait,sleep,exit and reenter or reload the last save.) Using console commands to advance the quest is the only known way to fix this.

So use the console to remove the effect, or read an elder scroll.
