Description

I have a save file attached where I have defeated Lich Coldhearth. I did not go back and talk to the other dwarves after discovering that Coldhearth was a lich, I immediately attacked him and then went and grabbed his phylactery and then destroyed it in the fire portal. After doing so the quest was not marked as complete, but he will not respawn and whenever I rest in the spot where he died (in the phylactery room) I see his protection spells going off where he died but he never reappears. I tried letting the game sit and wait and he never respawned and I also tried reloading, camping, exiting and re-entering the game, etc.

Thanks! I'll let you know when I figure this out. It's definitely not behaving as intended.

So I'm not sure why you experienced this issue. Normally once the phylactery is destroyed you still need to destroy his body, but it was acting really strangely.

Anyways, you should just be able to load up this save (and get the journal entry/xp). Let me know here/on reddit if you have further issues.

Everything's working, thank you!

For anyone on the QA team reading this, this is the thread where the issue was reported. They are running the game in 2.3

Basically for some reason the lich is invisible. So you can't kill him to end the quest. I think it may have something to do with him incorrectly spawning after being destroyed/a rest. But beyond that I don't know. I'm leaving the ticket open still in case it comes up again.
