I've been looking for this guy from the moment I set foot in Flotsam, before doing any quests, because he is apparently the guy who can give me a haircut and get rid of this stupid ponytail (eventually just used a mod to change his hair).
But he's not in Flotsam. Not in his house, not walking around, just nowhere to be found. So I've done some questing and and now I'm supposed to roll back all the way to the start of the Chapter on the off-chance that a quest NPC might show up in the game?
What kind of sloppy crap is this? You can't beat Einar, you can't play Sendler. You can't play Sendler, you can't get the she-troll's head. You don't get the head, you don't get the Hunter's Armor diagram or the troll tongue ingredient.
EDIT: I've narrowed it down to one of two events that made him disappear: either going down to the docks and accepting "The Kayran" quest, or talking to the two alchemists outside Einar's house who want to experiment on Geralt.
Einar was in fact in his house in a savegame just before I did these two things, and has vanished without a trace in my very next savegame afterwards.
