    I have cleared all of the wealth and ability chests in Lunden including the Crepelgate Fort. I have watched YouTube videos that show the Man's Best Friend upgrade is in Lunden.

    When I look at the world map there are no Ability markers left so please fix this as soon as possible.

    I have this issue as well, an issue I only accidentally found was an issue, since I was confused when someone asked me if I had already met my "wolf friend", only to learn via them that there's an ability I should have gotten but didn't. The wolf was not with the kids when we reached town (he ran off after some deer, seems like), I didn't gain the ability (but the wolf appears in the longhouse).

    I can't believe this has been going on since November, with lots of people affected, and it still wasn't fixed. C'mon. I've played for too many hours already to go back and redo this quest (I don't think I even have any saves from before it).

    I unlocked level 1 from the quest with the kids just fine but have never been able to actually use the ability. I have it assigned to an action slot and I'm aiming at enemies with my bow but the icon never lights up for me to activate it. I unlocked level 2 as well hoping that would fix it but it didn't. I was hoping the newest update would fix it but it doesn't either. It's still unusable aiming at an enemy with my bow and I'd really like to use it

    I have the same issue as of patch 1.1.1. Also noted this issue way after the mission and are now 65+ hours in. Have no intention going back to an old save because of it.
    The video showing I have the wolf in settlement but the quest are not in the list among completed ones.



    Can't the devs add this retroactively when you are past a certain point in the game?

    I have the ability, both levels but it has never worked. It's permanently greyed out. Wolf never shows up.
    The wolf lingers around in the longhouse. Are we ever gonna get a fix for this?
    im 68 hours in and dont wanna go back 20 hours of gameplay.

    Started a new playthrough on the latest patch and i have only level 1 of man's best friend ability, i didn't get the 1st level when i did the Knud quest, i've only just noticed and i'm well over 200 power level, so going back to earlier saves isn't possible, i didn't have this bug before on my first playthrough on 1.02, so for me anyway, this bug isn't fixed

    I only have 1 ability after doing the quest and reading the book, this is a new playthrough on the latest patch, so it still needs fixing, i'm too far in to load a save and go back to do the Knud quest again. i never had this bug before on 1.02 back in November.

    3 months after release, still not fixed.
    Did the quest many hours before learning that there was an ability linked to its completion so out of question to come back to an ancient save.
    Just got the book ... but my ability is level 1 iso 2...
    Please Ubisoft, give us the opportunity to redo the quest or give us the first level of the ability if quest has been completed.

    Hello all!

    Firstly, allow me to apologise for the delayed update. This issue had been marked as resolved in TU 1.1.1, however we have received reports that this issue still persists for some players. This investigation has since been reopened by the development team. We apologise for any disappointment caused by this.

    At this moment in time, we have no further information to share regarding the ongoing investigation, including a definite ETA for a resolution. Once we have any updates to share, these will be posted within the forums, so please keep an eye out!

    I'm now going to take the time to respond to some specific comments left in the thread following our last official update.

    @Brentacus305 - Thanks for taking the time to share what helped you to get around this issue. I used a very similar method to yourself in getting the wolf back to the settlement. I stuck to the wolf like glue, and followed it if it ran off to ensure it was safely escorted back to Ravensthorpe (as well as the children). I was able to unlock the ability following this strict observation. If players are able to, I would recommend loading a save from before this quest to ensure that the wolf and children get back to the settlement at the same time as you.

    @ExKage - Hey there! As you're encountering a slightly different issue (being unable to use the ability), I would recommend opening a new thread about this issue so we can keep the investigations separate. Thanks! 😊

    @ubi-borealis after all that expensive money us customers have spent and the 340 hours on 2 game completions and its still broken, the 2.5 years you guys had to get it right an still 3 months after release you still have a broken game, guess what UBISOFT you are pathetic and you can stick it right where it hurts, NEVER AGAIN will myself, my grand kids or my 4 children be allowed to purchase your crap EVER AGAIN, Enjoy the feeling, you truly suck. Just keep adding paid stuff to a broken game you are remarkable...

    @flakywoofz I have the same issue on ps4. Did you manage to get the skill at the end?

    This has definitely NOT been fixed. On PS4 the wolf just despawned when running back with the kids. Finishing the quest did NOT give me the ability.

    I just finished the game and have gotten all wealth, mysteries and artifacts...in all areas, in England, Norway, Vinland, Asgard and Jotunheim! I completed all quests in all these areas and I have all abilities EXCEPT Man's best friend - level 2....WTH!

    I can't find anything else to do on this game except fish, hunt and catch fire flies....lol. Anyone have any idea when they are adding content? I got "Way of the Berserker" and can't seem to figure out how to access it. Any ideas?

    Despite new update today (adding a bit of content), still no patch for "man's best friend" ability bug... I don't know if they intend to solve this one day or not... So disappointing.
