BUG: Lost Party Members

Question

Hi,  I would like to report a bug that's really affecting my gameplay:

 

 Since patch at start of June, the companions and custom characters I had in my stronghold have disappeared. Custom Characters are completely gone while the game npcs have returned to their original locations but are now non-recruitable. 

 

 Those in my party remain fine, but I recently hired a custom character from an inn and had to remove Durance to make way for them. Durance is now back in his original location of Magran's Fork and is, like the others unrecruitable. 

 

 I enclose a link to a drop box zip containing:

  • dxdiag
  • output log
  • save file - everyone available - which is a save from before the june patch
  • save file - Dur, Greive, Sag & Hiv missing - from current game with everyone missing
  • save file - Durance non recruitable - from current game showing how characters cannot be recruited

https://www.dropbox.com/s/c3glmnvu0pdj7dg/PoE%20Saves%20-%20output.zip?dl=0

 

Is there any way I can re-recruit these companions as I have not completed the quests for any of them.  Also, Eder's quest seems to be broken now as he permanently wishes to speak to me but has no further dialogue options.

 

 Any response gratefully received.

Hello, Quillmonkey.  I am sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you.  I've downloaded your files and will take a closer look.  Thank you for your patience and support while I work on this issue.

Hello again.  In regards to Durance, did you dismiss him through dialogue or did you just leave him at the stronghold?  I can see the issue with your game but am having a hard time reproducing it on my end.  I will keep plugging away, but any additional information you have, steps that you did before and after you noticed, etc would be helpful.  Thanks again!

Hi Celliott,

 

 No, I didn't dismiss Durance through dialogue - in fact, if you talk to him (or any of the other companions) the dialogue options suggest that he still believes his is travelling with me.  I  even get the dialogue option of 'let's get moving' or similar, but they do not join. 

 

Durance was in my party and I went to an inn to try and recruit new adventurers (as all of mine were missing from stronghold which prevented me from carrying out any adventures or escorting duties). In the party management screen I had to dismiss Durance in order to add my newly created monk and level her up. Unfortunately once I'd done that, Durance was not in the stronghold and was no longer recruitable from Magran's Fork.  

 

 I have just repeated the action now by creating a new priest and dismissing everyone apart from this new character from my party - when I go back to Caed Nua, they are all sitting there comfortably.  So this issue doesn't appear to be happening any more. However, when it did, it meant losing all the companions I had recruited and now I cannot get any of them back except the 4 I have in my party. 

 

 I'm guessing this means going back a month or so to saved games where everyone is still available and starting again from there?  Unless you have any better suggestions?

 

 Many thanks for looking into this.

...oh and another thing that might help:

 

 The reason I had to create a new custom character was that I sent Grieving mum and Sagani on two assignments from stronghold. Messages appeared telling me they'd completed their assignments and were returning to stronghold, but neither turned up. When I next went to Caed Nua there were no companions there at all.  I found Grieving Mum back in Dyrford but I never have come across Sagani again.

Quillmonkey,

 

I found a bug in our database that is very similar to your issue.  I've added your specific issue and files to the bug and it is assigned to the proper team.  Thanks for your ongoing support!

Just an update on this issue ...

 

I've now lost Eder and Kana as well.  I removed them so that I could claim bounties with just my main pc (more xp) and when I went back to the party management menu, both were missing. Kana is back outside Caed Nua and won't join.  Eder is back in Gilded Vale and likewise won't join.

 

 My world is now littered with npcs who think they are travelling with me but are stuck in their original start position.  I've only got Aloth and a bunch of custom characters to finish the game.

Hello again.  I'm very sorry for your inconvenience.  The bug is still open in our database.  I've been unable to reproduce it on my machine through many attempts, saved games, and parties.  

 

On a side note you should be able to get to max level no problem even with a full party.  The last 3 bounties for me are pretty much wasted XP by the time I get to Twin Elms as I'm already at level cap.  Thanks for your patience and ongoing support during this issue.

Apparently this is still an ongoing issue, as the same things are happening to me and is beyond frustrating.  Seemed to start occurring after I enlisted Durance into my party...At this point, I had Aloth, Eder, Kana, myself (Paladin), Hired Cleric, Hired Thief.

 

Did not notice any similar issues until after I recruited Durance.

    Had same problem but with Grieving Mother - she just disapeared from my party after some map change, and is not at the stronghold - thought she was so previous autosave was overwritten upon entering this map!!! Broke all the game fun for me.

Hello pbsiqueira,

 

Could you please upload a save file and an output log so I can take a look? There are ways for Grieving Mother to leave the party such as perma death, or sacrificing the baby in Twin Elms.

 

Thanks a bunch!
