Skyrim Players Baffled By Rogue Werewolf

Bethesda

Are you feeling hungry like the wolf? Perhaps it's time to revisit the expansive world of the Elder Scrolls and jump back into Skyrim. Yes, we know it's been a decade since we first visited the fifth mainline addition to Bethesda's lauded Elder Scrolls series, but with it being held as one of the best video games of all time, we're still turning up new secrets.

With Bethesda just announcing to 10-year Skyrim Anniversary Edition - with the addition of fishing - there's a renewed interest in the troubles and trials of Tamriel. We know The Elder Scrolls 6 is still a long way off, meaning there couldn't be a better time to pick up your Drainblood Battleaxe and yeet a dragon from the sky. 

Who is the rogue werewolf in Skyrim?

 

 

Werewolves are no strangers to Skyrim, with those furry foes littering these lands and being a nuisance for the Dragonborn. Werewolves first appeared in Daggerfall, had an expanded role in Bloodmoon, and an even bigger part to play in Skyrim. Here, the infamous "Ill Met by Moonlight" quest puts you in the path of a werewolf called Sinding.

As a quick refresher, the quest sees the Dragonborn try and earn the favour of Prince Hircine. If you kill Sinding and skin him, you'll earn the ultra-powerful Savior's Hide, and if you spare him he thanks you and promises to stay in a cave forevermore. Posting on Reddit, one player noted that Sinding might not have been true to his word.

In a post on the Skyrim subreddit, u/floxasfornia claims they used fast travel to cross the realm and land at Whiterun Stables, only to come across Sinding miles away from where they left him. Commenting on the post, puzzled players shared their own thoughts about what's going on.

Someone wrote, "It's a well-known glitch. When the final area you meet him in respawns, it doesn't despawn the original, or any other sindings there, because he's not there from the start. This means a clone of him is spawned every time that cell resets.

"If you don't return to the area for a long time, these can accumulate and can be found wandering the roads, or even inside Falkreath. I've never heard of the clones travelling as far as Whiterun though. As far as I knew, they always stick to Falkreath hold."

It turns out a rogue werewolf is commonplace in Skyrim. Another added, "I’ve killed and skinned him and gotten him to show up at honningbrew meadery. He’s a chad", while a third said, "That lying sh*t. Kill him. Wear his fur like a jacket."

Where is Sinding in Skyrim?

This player presumably didn't go with the option of killing Sinding, however, others have come across him even after skinning him. Last year, one redditor titled their post, "I met Sinding in Riverwood, which is strange because I killed him a few hours ago. I think my character is hallucinating out of guilt for killing the poor guy."

Another concluded, "I met Skjor and some other companions near Windhelm fighting a mammoth. After I became their leader and Skjor died. Also he respawned." Skyrim has become a weird and wonderful place for glitches, and it's likely all of the above is just the game reusing NPCs without properly updating their questlines. 

In Skyrim, you can turn into a werewolf by drinking blood of Aela the Huntress and gaining Beast Form. Some claim they've actually met Sinding while in wolf form and he's helped them kill enemies, but by the looks of it, his random appearance across the map is merely a simple glitch. Give him a wave - it sounds like he's given up on killing innocent children.

If you have exhausted everything there is to do in Skyrim, take a look at everything we know about the sequel, including the Elder Scrolls 6 release date.
