Description

After having beaten the demon within the room with the mirror, having played some time and noticed that the item "Soultaker Dagger" is needed, I tracked its location back via 'Near Infinity' to AR0516.are (deepest level of 'Durlag's Tower').

Having decompressed the 'SAV'-file, I pinpointed its location on (X, Y) = (616, 498) in what's called a 'Pile (4)' along with another item. Having located via 'CTRL + X' the exact same location, there's nothing to be seen there with the demon already being dead.

Hello
I have submitted the report as the dagger could disappear. However, Ajantis has the dagger in your save so did you console it in?

(Also Hurgan Stoneblade is not present, there is no ambush on arrival at Ulgoths Beard and both the game variables and journal entry indicate the ambush has already taken place and Hurgan has left so not sure your save lines up with the report)

Thanks

Indeed the ambush already has been taking place and the summoned demon been defeated; the 'Soultaker Dagger' was placed there by myself with the help of EE-Keeper 1.0.4; don't let its presence irritate you.

Please also take in mind that I fist had to enter the village to meet 'Hurgan', leave the inn and then was ambushed, which did irritate me as a player and didn't appear to make much sense. It might've been more helpful to first let the player be ambushed by the cult when entering the village, then encounter 'Hurgan' afterwards.

Also take in mind that there's a second item in the same pile according to 'Near Infinity' which isn't the dagger, supposed to have been dropped by the demon and still not being visible, so again: Please don't let yourself be irritated by the via EE-Keeper 1.0.4 spawned presence of the 'Soulkeeper Dagger'. If so required, I will gladly provide a savegame before the encounter with 'Hurgan' and the artificially spawned 'Soultaker Dagger'.

It's reported. Many items are intended to be lost if left on the ground for a length of time. This should not happen for plot critical items such as the Soultaker.

If you don't have the dagger, there should be no ambush and Hurgan should remind you to get it.
On your return with the dagger, the ambush should take place before you can enter the inn. i.e. if the dagger is not lost, it should play out correctly.

If you add the dagger via the console, EE Keeper or NI while next to Hurgan that would break the sequence in the manner you describe.
