The Markarth DLC and Update 28 base game patch are now available to test on the PTS! Read the full patch notes here:

Castle of the Worm - "Follow Cadwell" - BROKEN

Main story Daggerfall quest thread @ lvl 20 (normal, not Veteran)
Cadwell has stopped moving and refuses to fix any more steam pipes so quest is stuck and cannot go any further.
Getting fed up with broken quests, but I can at least move on.
However main story quest line being broken is plain silly............
When can I expect this to be fixed (along with my lost bank slots and items............??)

Edit: Didn't realise that I cant even leave the quest area so I am totally screwed!

Seriously considering giving up on ESO to go and play something less broken instead.

    Regrettably, as multiple folks have already successfully passed this point, it looks to be one of those 'occasional' server glitches, not a functional, 100% problem with the quest itself.

    So my suggestion? Teleport out if you can, that may force an instance reset.
  • paulb2905b16_ESO
    OK so I quit the game completely, went and did something less frustrating for an hour (ish) and the quest rest me to outside the Harborage.
  • Sihnfahl
    Well, yes, because it's an instance. They close instance threads after the folks have logged out after a certain amount of time to minimize resource consumption.

    This problem just happened to me as well. :(

    If you seem to be stuck within the instance, just open up your map and teleport to any of the wayshrines, you will have to pay the fee, but it will get you out. It will also reset the quest, so you will have to start from the beginning.

    EDIT: Just to say that he also got stuck when I tried the quest for the first time. He did eventually started walking again, once I went ahead and killed all the mobs within his path. Though I seriously was wishing I could "Fus ro dah" his butt into moving. :P

    Wasn't this supposed to have been fixed in the 1.0.7 patch??
  • javaman123
    I found a work around...Do NOT kill any NPCs ahead of Cadwell!! Let Cadwell pull all the NPCs and then you can complete the quest.

    Still happens...

    I'm experiencing the bug right now. How disappointing to see a main storyline quest still bugged after all this time. Going ahead and killing the rest of the mobs in the instance did not work. I guess I have to try the other workarounds.

    This is what worked for me,

    Cadwell stopped moving after i killed those first clannfears u come across, i then killed all the mobs in the area al the way too a door with the steam and all.
    Then i reloged, i was still in the instance but when i was ingame i noticed cadwell was just suddenly standing at the door where u can continue ;D

    hope it works for you guys!
