Helmite Paladin Ghost companions stuck in Protector's Enclave as intended or bug?

A guild member asked me recently if I also heard the voices in Protector's Enclave at various locations so we explored various locations together and I was able to determine that although there is no visible Companion, the spoken audio lines are the same as the Helmite Paladin Ghost companion. I said I didn't know if they were intended or bug, because I've seen several types of companion persistent residual effects since I've found Neverwinter.

    They are the spectral trickersters from the Halloween event, Masquerade of Liars. They are supposed to be disabled outside the event but got renabled at mod 16 launch. The devs fixed that at some point buy apparently the change got reverted at mod 18 launch and they have back ever since. It has been reported and acknowledged numerous times but probably isn't a priority.

    This bug of deactivated or defunct critters happens elsewhere as well. Here's a really weird example: in Drowned Shore, if you approach one of the carts of ballista supplies, you might catch a glimpse of some lizardfolk standing there that suddenly disappear. This hearkens back to the very early days of Elemental Evil, before there was an actual Elemental Evil campaign in the campaign list. That cart used to be defended by lizardfolk, when there were no agitators at the nearby cult flag (indeed, when there wasn't even a flag there). It's strange that somehow the game still "remembers" that there used to be a lizardfolk encounter there and rapidly despawns it. Maybe there should be an extra event during Simril called the Ghosts of Encounters Past :lol:

    Another oddity in Drowned Shore is an illusionary tree concealing a druid near the unused campfire of Old Lenn. I was taking a break from the game at mod 6 release and didn't come back until just after the mod 9 change to make it a campaign. I assume this was for a now gone quest, like the Air Tomes in Spinward.

    Air tomes are still a thing in Spinward. The harper gives you the quests for them after you finish the zone.
    Vampires are dead bodies animated by a spiritual infection. Blood will have blood because it must, because that's how the infection is spread. The infected wake up inside their coffins, break out, and dig their way up out of their own graves. Undead, unnatural things, driven by a need for blood and horror. Parasites that prey on the living. There's nothing romantic, or melancholy, about vampires. They're leeches on two legs. ~ Simon R. Green The Big Game

    Interesting. I didn't know that but it was rather pointless for some minor RP gems. Doesn't even grant lore.

    Yes, there used to be a quest involving that druid. It was one of the last quests before you entered the water node. A ton of EE quests were removed to bring the campaign in line with other leveling areas in terms of the number of quests you had to do, but the result is leftovers like this, or in the case of Reclamation Rock and Fiery Pit the storyline becomes disjointed.
