I've finished the quests for the different orc tribes and now I'm supposed to meet Brok beyond the gate. Here's my problem:
1) If I just walk up to him in the room next to the throne room, I get stuck in a fight with his guards and for some reason Arrok and his elementals also roll initiative, so after the fight is over, I am still stuck in combat with enemies behind the door. As long as I am in combat I can't open the door though so I can't go any further.
2) If I sneak and misty step to open the door without triggering the guard fight, I can fight Arrok but Brok hasn't properly joined my party, so he just stands there, counts as neutral creature, and after defeating Arrok and his elementals my quest still isn't completed.
So far I haven't found any workarounds. I can't access the minor gate as the door to it is closed after fighting the ghostly Emperor.
