  • I completed the Ancient Power quest in Broken Oar Grotto with Serena as a follower.  However, she wont leave the cave with me.  I did another quest thinking she would respawn next to me but never did.  I tried to go separate ways w/ her but she's in stuck inside the cave.  Any way I can make her leave?

      No i used it on her in the soul cairn a lot (she got stuck so many times). She won't but some people will become hostile though, never shout at a chicken.

    • She's the intellect of a lil' girl. To afraid to venture out into that cruel world, in that built in boat house in Broken Oar Grotto, she feels at home... the filthy whore. Getting it on with a god of the sinister underworld of Oblivion. Degrading ritual my ass

    • Fast travel to castle folkish at balcony. Worked for me

    • I had the same problem but all I did was go back inside and she followed me out. I haven't tried the Fus Ro Dah method yet. She doesn't become hostile if you attack or fus ro dah her. I've done it plenty of times when she would block a door way.

    • I'm having this same issue. The Fus Roh Dah method isn't working either.

    • Serana got stuck for me in shalidors maze, however fast traveling to labyrinthian even though I'm already there got her unstuck out of the maze. That was on ps3, so it might work there as well.

    • You need to either push or Fus Ro Dah her out of the area that's she stuck in.

    • Save your progress and reload that save file. Usually that will fix it.

    • same thing is happening to me..... still cant get her out nomatter wat i do if u guys think of something wright it

    • Make sure she`s actively following you before leaving her in the grotto.

      Go to Solitude and commit a crime , pay your fine and be transported to Castle Dour by the guard.

      Hopefully Serana will appear then.

      Haven`t tried this myself but read that this can also extract Dead Thralls from the grotto.

    • Yeah, I'm having the same problem, I tried everything. Reloading the game up, shouting at her, Leaving and coming back, Even Parting ways with her, which then She told me to meet her at Darkfall Cave then left. I checked there and Fort Dawnguard, and she was in neither place. She moves around fine in the cave, She's not physically stuck, she just cannot leave the cave.

    • this worked for me " For followers, exit the cave without dismissing or asking the follower to wait, then fast travel to Septimus Signus outpost. Wait there twenty-four hours. Fast travel back to Broken Oar Grotto. The follower will now be standing outside the cave; if they are not, fast travel somewhere and they should appear."

    • I had Cicero stuck in Broken Oar Grotto and I was going to try the suggested method, but a slightly different method worked for me:


      1. Fast travel to Solitude.

      2. Commit a crime. (I tried taking some chick's clothes)

      3. Let yourself be killed. (The guards didn't give me the "pay for your crimes" option. I must have runout of "get out of jail" cards.)

      4. Respawn in Solitude: Your follower should be there.


      That said, I'm never taking anyone into that grotto.

    • That's what i did, I went to solitude and committed a crime, after that i went to jail, did my time and when i got out my follower was waiting for me... I had never been so happy to see her xD

      This worked for me as well, with a one exception. After waiting 24 hours at Septimus Sigmus's outpost, I fast traveled back to Broken Oar Grotto, and Serana was not there. I then fast traveled to Winterhold and Serana was still not there. I then fast traveled to Solitude, and she appeared. So if the above doesn't work, try fast traveling to Solitude after fast traveling somewhere else first, or maybe just going straight to Solitude would have worked. Not sure if it will be consistent or not, but it worked for me.

    • Yeah, I had a similar problem. My followers would not leave the cave, only my Steadfast Dwarven Sphere would leave with me. However, my summoned Spectral Assasin, Cicero, and Serana did not want to leave. I went back several times and was able to get them to somehow appear at the outside entrance without even going in it, save for the Spectral Assassin; I just resummoned him (though he lost his bow/arrows that way). I'll have to use the Solitude jail method next time. -_-

    • I've not yet tried any of the above solutions, quite simply because what I do works every time. If you have Serana and/or another follower that won't leave Broken Oar Grotto, leave the Grotto and go to a location where you can go inside, say Breezehome or any other location where you can physically leave the open world. This doesn't apply to towns or cities, it needs to be a tavern, pub, store, anything with a door to open. Then go back outside whatever location you decided to go into, and fast travel back to Broken Oar Grotto. Every time this happens to me, Serana is waiting outside when I get back. Hope this helps some people.

    • PS3: The solution about commiting a crime (tried to rob some clothes on pickpocketing) on Solitude and paying the bounty (Thieves Guild members pay attention because the bribe option is the first, I was so tense that I clicked that one first) will spawn Serana. She delayed like 2 seconds to appear, but when she appeared I just cheered like a child. It works.

      That grotto: never again.

      Deleted comment...

      I believe the question they're asking is, if you can propose to/marry Serana, as the option to do so does not show up even with an amulet of mara in inventory.  In response to the above question, I don't believe you can marry her.

        Loading editor
    • Without being on the PC to use a mod or commands you can not marry Serana.

    • I am playing on a PC.  I  just experienced Serana getting stuck in Broken Or Grotto.   I had not "dismissed her."  After reading the several postings, I tried leaving the grotto and fast traveling to Septimus Sigmus's Outpost.  I entered the Outpost,  and  Serana appeared with me inside the Outpost.  I then left (went outside) and Serana exited with me with  no problems, and we both are now back at Fort Dawnguard.  At this time, I do not know if this was a singular event, or the character Serana just can't "go outside" at Broken Or Grotto.

    • Hello, so I been playing Skyrim recently and I was getting the Black Book: Untold Legends. The location for it is at Solstheim in a cave called Benkongerike. Serena got stuck all the sudden while I was getting the boss loot and I didn't notice for a few hours. So I went back and I saw that Serena was right by the chest without moving I tried doing the committing crime in solitude and unrelenting forcing her out. But nothing seems to be working. Could anyone help me ASAP? And I also was able to get her to move a little bit with commands but there isn't a possible way I can get her out of the cave because she declines my orders :(

      You can try using unrelenting force at random points near the entrance. If this doesn't work, try waiting. If all of this fails, you will have to reload an earlier save.

      With a non-Serana follower such as Neloth, you should just be able to tell him to wait where he is through his normal dialogue options, then go to another worldspace (for example, the main map) and spend 3 in-game days there. You'll get a message saying your follower went home, and then you can go back to his home to get him to follow you again.
