How to fix Elden Ring NPC Invader not spawning issue
In some instances, some or several of the Invader NPCs we’ve listed will not spawn in their designated locations. This problem occurs due to one reason. If you kill the main boss of the area where the NPC is supposed to spawn, they will no longer appear there.
The best way to avoid this issue is to make sure you kill all Invader NPCs within a region/area before you take on the main boss.
It is also important to note that once you’ve defeated an Invader, they will no longer spawn. However, if you’re unable to defeat them, they’ll keep respawning in the area until you defeat them.
