So basically, I am at the point where I need to go to the silver mine, and can ask Ulrich to come along. I have played this mission now 5 times, and every single time, Ulrich bugs out.
The first time, he walked SUPER slowly, and when we arrived at the point where a horde of bandits are waiting (there are like 7 of them, if not more), they start fighting eachother, and Ulrich joins them in fighting me. The curious thing is also that he has no sword and only uses his fists. I died pretty quickly because I can’t take on 9 fully equipped bandits/knights.
The second time, Ulrich, as soon as we were on our way, began to run. I had the option to “confront” him, whatever that means. So I did, and he immediately began to attack me (with his fists). I killed him with an arrow between the eyes, and went on to the site. When I arrived, I managed to kill 2 bandits, but the remaining 2 attacked me simultaneously and ultimately killed me after a short fight.
The third time, Ulrich just stayed where he was, and when I turned around after I walked for like 2 meters, he was simply gone. No trace of him. I searched the area, nothing. I went to the quest location, nothing. He was just gone. So I restarted.
Fourth and fifth time were just like the first time: I arrived with Ulrich (who now ran - I had the option to “confront” him again, but I ignored that…), and as soon as we met the group of bandits (again 8 or so), they fought eachother, then me, then eachother, and Ulrich helped them in fighting me.
I honestly don’t know what to do. Even if I kill Ulrich so he won’t join the enemies, I can’t defeat the bandits who are simply too strong and outnumber me greatly. Even if I go directly to the mines and avoid the horde on the path, its still 1 vs 4, and I can’t win this. I can put up a fight, but after a few minutes, I am down.
