This section contains bugs related to Wizard's Tower. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- There are reports of a particular glitch/bug that makes the atronach's body freeze on spot after its death. This cannot be fixed, but means no harm; one can still summon another one.
- Fighter's Stronghold plug-in. The Mystic Emporium remains permanently locked after it closes, which means that the only way to buy supplies for Frostcrag Spire is to pick the lock and break in.
This DLC appears to conflict with the
- Picking the door lock then entering the shop turns it back to normal again until the next map change via fast travel and is not considered trespassing if done during opening hours.
- A solution for this issue is to install the Wizard's Tower after the Fighter's Stronghold.
