    I was able to complete the quest by teleporting out, going to the inn and telling Samael he's 'fired' and then hiring Kardan. Kardan followed me without issue through the Necropolis.

    Thanks for the report and update! Issue #65953

    I'm not sure why Samael wouldn't follow you. He should "attach" to you when you first talk/say "hello" to him.

    Did you try talking to Samael with anything other than "hello"? If so, I wonder if he replied at all.

    After you teleported out, did you try going back in and talking to Samael again before switching to Kardan? I'm wondering if it was a one-time issue or if you could repeat it.

    I did talk to Samael many times saying different things inside and outside of the instance but to no avail. I had also logged out and back in a few times. After getting it to work with Kardan I noticed the whistle thing to summon him (Kardan) in my inventory. I'm 90% sure I had destroyed the same item from Samael when I was working with him. I had thought it was from a different quest I'd already completed. So, I think the fact Samael wouldn't talk to me was somehow related to the fact that I no longer possessed his whistle.

    Ah, interesting. Yeah, you may have slightly broken Samael when you destroyed the whistle. Although I could have sworn Lum set it up so it could adapt to that situation. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the additional info!
