When you travel, I understand that you go to a new location and that becomes your quest. But, my question is, does the creatures and other thing stay at the old location waiting for your return when you head back there? Say I travel to a new location. When I leave, there is 2 creatures there. Do they stay there and when I head back, are they there? Please let me know. Thanks.
Other then moving the location next to the quest nothing changes when you travel. Enemy that are in staging stay in staging, enemies engaged with you stay engaged with you. Traveling has no effect on Enemies at all.
EDIT: Sneak Attacked by Gandalf... and people who post two minutes faster then me.
