How to Avoid the Bloodstone Glitch First, ill explain what the glitch is if you don't already know. The glitch happens when you go to talk to Reaver for the first part of the hero of skill quest, when you are supposed the get the seal from him. If you don't have enough renown and try to talk to him you get glitched. What it does - It makes you unable to draw your melee or ranged weapon, talk to civilians, and even leave Bloodstone. However one thing i realized is that you CAN talk to the Bard and get him to sing your song. How to avoid the glitch - What i have figured out is that you need at least 30,000 renown to start this quest, if you don't have that much please do not attempt the quest unless you want to be glitched. Currently this is a GBG (Game Breaking Glitch) which means you cant fix it if you have already had it. However you can start a new character and they will function completely fine. Also, I was told that using another disk works, and this is just a lie, because it is not the disk that is messed up, it is the character.
