I had a level 15 Breton that I was specializing in conjuration with and whenever I'd try to conjure the flame atronach, my guy would literally disappear for about 4 seconds and then reappear and there would be no atronach. When I was able to successfully conjure the dadgum thing, I had to come to a complete stop and point at the ground. I discovered this when I was doing the White Phial quest from Winterhold. I've since deleted that character, but I'd like to know if it was a bug in the game for that character. I haven't gotten any of the patches due to my not having an internet connection. Anyone have any ideas?
