    I have the same issue & I'm on PS4. Settlement is level 3, Wolf is lying in the sun outside longhouse but I never got the ability. I don't actually think I got the notification for it as I wasn't even aware of it until I saw a youtube video.

    I also didn't get the skill once completing the quest. The quest progressed fine (as far as I could tell), the wolf hangs around the long house, moves around a few times, and Eivor talks to it while walking past. I have since found the Man's Best Friend ability from a skillbook.

    So I’m curious, I have the skill (or had before the game deleted 11 hours of progress) but I am unable to ever use it or the raven distraction even with full adrenaline. Even when I had two full bars thinking it might take extra and still they’re grayed out and never able to use either. Wolf just stays in the longhouse by my bed. Is it supposed to actually travel with you? Or magically teleport and jump on screen when you need it?

    Also have that issue on PC, I'm like 40 hours into the game now and I think I did that quest like 20 hours back. I don't even have a save that far back now to go back to. No idea I was supposed to get an ability as the ability gained thing did not pop up. I do remember the wolf wasn't with the kids when the quest cleared.

    Honestly, knowing I missed on this ability for the last 20 hours sucks. Why do I buy Ubi games day 1 again?

    after a day of looking online and finding nothing I found this glad I’m not the only one but this is pretty upsetting r

    Apparently, the only way to fix this is to replay the mission AND DON'T LET THE WOLF STRAY OFF. The wolf needs to be present when your final conversation with the children happens. I'd shoot all the distractions in the path i.e. the wild animals, so dwolfg wouldn't stray off.

    Also having the same issue, thought I completed the quest 10 hours back in my playthrough, didn't realise there was an ability reward because I never received one.

    I haven't found a solution yet, my settlement is now tier 5 and I still dont have the ability. I just hope ubisoft can get a patch out soon.

    Same for me on PC, this is a bug that many people are getting. When I look at Youtube videos about this ability and how cool it is, almost 50 percent of the comments are about how the quest didn't give them the ability at the end! I really hope Ubisoft notices this post, I also made a post about it, but yours is more detailed with the correct name of the quest. I believe if the wolf chases something at the end of the quest it bugs out, at least that is what happened to me! I'm way past this point as I didn't know how to fix it at the time, so I hope they can give us the ability if the quest has been completed!

    @Ubi-Woofer Any chance this can be added to some mega thread?

    @cainisubi this is a running issue on so many reddit boards I really hope patch fixes this as I’m too far along to go back!

    @hardcobra3053 there are solutions on reddit but requires starting mission over ... apparently you need run very slow and stay by the Wolf the whole time even towards end.

    Same issue here, just found out that the quest was supposed to give an ability but I'm too far past to just revert to an earlier save and do the quest again, and I really don't want to start over and lose an entire weeks progress just because of this bug but its annoying me that I might have to finish the game without being able to get rank 2 on that ability. Looking on the forums seems like console players are also suffering from the same bug. Hopefully Ubisoft support can do something about this soon.
