    I've hunted high and low for posts by other gamers who've encountered this specific problem with the Man's Best Friend ability (level 2), but haven't been able to find any. Either I'm the only one experiencing this annoying issue, or very few people actually use this skill. Given all the problems folks had with getting it via the quest with Knud, as well as the huge number of posts by people seemingly confused as to how the skill actually works (i.e. needing to target an enemy first via LT), I'm going to go out on a limb and guess its the latter and not just me.

    So the problem I'm encountering involves the wolf knocking enemies down and killing them. Sometimes the wolf glitches out and vanishes, other times it simply runs away like its supposed to, but the absolute worst aspect of this is how targeted enemies will often get stuck in the animation where they're writhing on the ground spurting blood. Enemies stuck like this cannot be killed or looted which has the potential to be game breaking. For example, I just had it happen to a treasure carrying enemy. Personally I love the wolf and use it often, especially against zealots where the guaranteed knock down is a big boon. Especially at ability level 2 where the wolf can do multiple knockdowns before vanishing.

    I'm playing on the Xbox Series X and before you ask, there is no video, no screenshot and no specific place on the map where this happens (unless someone else feels up to doing it). You can test it for yourself by using level 2 of this ability to attack any of the enemies found roaming on any road. Yes, I know you'd prefer it if I did the work for you, but I'm every bit as lazy as the next guy. Besides, wouldn't it be better for you to see for yourself as the developer? Isn't it enough that I took the time to pay for the game, followed by logging in here to make you aware of yet another issue with AC Valhalla? 😉

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    @capnkel Someone is going to ask you to produce a video for this, assuming it gets any attention. On your XBox Series X, it really is not that hard for you to capture video, upload it to OneDrive or some other cloud host, but from there you’re going to have to upload it to YouTube or some other video hosting service.

    @thenorfolkian or share the link to Onedrive video directly.

    @capnkel I can confirm that this issue was reported previously, however the development team were unable to reproduce it.

    I have informed them that we have received another report so that they can investigate again.

    @bielik01 That’s not a bad idea, but it means making your OneDrive public!

    @thenorfolkian only the video... that's why you get shareable links, just like I did with my Dropbox. But out of laziness I decided to upload videos from my PS4 directly to YouTube.

    @bielik01 I didn’t realize that! Thanks for the tip!

    Thanks for sharing these video uploading tips @bielik01 @TheNorfolkian !

    Hopefully this helps @CapnKel and we'll be able to get this looked into!

    @ubi-theberry Okay, I guess I'm not as lazy as I thought I was. The comments really helped. I had no idea we could create shareable links via OneDrive which made sharing easier. The reality is that I'm security conscious and avoid signing up where possible, especially when it comes to social media. I don't see the point in giving away information to a corporate entity I'll likely use only once. So thanks everyone!

    I actually have four or five videos showing this, all created over the course of about two hours. Maybe the dev team simply gave up too easily? This is the one that turned out the best I think. The challenge was getting it all to fit into the one minute time limit Microsoft imposes on us. Anyways this bug obviously doesn't happen all the time. I'd say it's a 50/50 thing and may have something to do with the Stomp skill. Sometimes the option would show up and sometimes it wouldn't, though even when it does they would sometimes still get stuck in that animation.

    @capnkel I clicked your link and it says there’s a problem. You may want to check your OneDrive settings for sharing.

    @thenorfolkian I just tested it using a completely different PC and internet connection, via Firefox 92.0 with all cookies deleted prior to rebooting. It played fine so the problem must be on your end (I hope because I have no clue what might be wrong if it is at my end).

    @capnkel Ah, yeah... it turns out I had my ad blocker turned on for OneDrive... once I disabled it, your video streamed perfectly.

    Thanks for sharing a video with us, @CapnKel! I've now added this to your report to the development team. I'll also let them know about how often this issue seems to occur for you, especially when using the Stomp skill. This could be useful for their investigation.

    If we require any additional information from you, we will reach out within this thread. In the meantime, please keep an eye out within the News & Announcements forum for any future updates.

    Thanks! 😊
