My character is a High Elf. He has great respect for nature and all of its expressions. This is how i have him behave in the game. When i took on the quest to get sap to revive the whithering Gildergreen tree in Whiterun, a guy asked to accompany me as a pilgrim to the Eldergleam. Being a bit cautious and cheater, i checked his credentials... I found out he could help me not to wound the mother tree in order to get the sap i needed. All the better i thought...

Well, it would have been, if several bandits didn't attack us on the way. Someone might say i could kill them all and protect his life at the same time since i am 19th level, which is entirely true...

Well, it would have been true, if a blood dragon hadn't at the time decided to join the party and started blasting everyone indiscriminately! :doh:

Being the formidable warrior/mage that i am, i finaly managed to destroy both the bandits and drink the soul of the dragon :Tasty: :devil: , admittedly with a little help from the dragon himself, who sizzled a couple of bandits that didn't have enough healing potions to resist a feeble sizzling attempt like i did. <_< -_- .

However, Maurice Jondrelle, being a regular stupid -I-will-attack-on-my-own- NPC that he was :new_bottom: , died in the course of the battle :o . This meant that i had to cut the mother tree and a few Spriggans who objected violently to my action, creatures otherwise quite peacefull, that killed all the pilgrims in the sanctuary and tried to do the same to me - unsuccessfully of course -_- -_-.

How was i suppossed to fight several bandits, a DRAGON :crying: and at the same time protect the life of my stupid NPC companion who wouldn't follow orders??? :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall:

Oh wow. I don't remember that part being that hard. Then again, by the time I did it, I was level 30+, and any dragon I came across was a cakewalk (seriously, I had to bump up the difficulty level to Expert).

Y's advice is sound, reload, and take it one step at a time. This is why you should always have multiple save slots. Good luck!

I ran afoul of that on my first playthrough. Best thing is to find the Eldergleam Sanctuary first, return to Whiterun and then fast travel there with Maurice.

This is a very sound tactic. Since i found out about this trick, i have used it many times. :doh:

I'm ressurecting this old thread because I had the same problem last night! Despite being level 45, I ran into a dragon last night, with Maurice in tow! Playing as a Khajiit, I'd been sneaking more than halfway through the game, and was crouching, but what did Maurice do? He saw the dragon, and chaaaaaaaaaarged! *sigh* Thank goodness there weren't any bandits in the mix! Took a few reloads, but in the end, I had to take down the dragon before he spotted us in order to save his sorry hide.
Kinda made me wish I'd taken Cal's advice and discovered that silly grove beforehand!
