Dead Thrall works on Haldyn. However, after finishing the quest in this area and returning to "normal" areas he was no were to be found. However, the NPC's would still make comments as if I had a zombie about me. I'm unsure if it is a bug or intended, since there is a note/warning on that zone's area calling it "it's own 'world'". — Unsigned comment by 188.8.131.52 (talk)
- I was able to bring him back with me successfully from Japhet's Folly. While he didn't show up as soon as I got back to the Windhelm docks, after fast traveling to Whiterun and waiting a couple of hours, he finally appeared through the gates (this is on patch 1.5 btw).
- I was Lv 71 when I thralled him/started the quest, so he must be capped bellow 40, which is great because thrallable mages who wear several pieces of armor and cast Expert level Destruction spells (he has Thunderbolt) are rare to say the least.
- Also, if you don't complete "Rise in the East" (just don't do the last step of speaking to Orthus), his body seems to be permanent. The downside is you can't get Adelaisa Vendicci as a follower, but there are plenty of other good ones and Haldyn is a nice Dead Thrall. --DanPT 13:46, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
