Locked Solved [RESOLVED] NPCs with coins do not spawn in "Firing the Arrow" | POST HERE10 Likes/89 Replies/2700 ViewsOriginal poster Alojin 10 posts
Update 1.2.0 and still not fixed. I´m kinda not angry anymore i rather want to cry almost. Not even a mention in the patch notes letting us know they are working on it or something. I already mentioned it, but where is the problem implementing a reset mission button? I really hope that i can finish this game before a new ac comes out and no i won´t be starting a new playthrough since i´m to far in the story and i don´t want to risk playing up to the mission again and it not working again.
See you guys on the next update!

@ubi-woofer I don’t know how to do that and I’ve wasted enough time on this garbage game. If you want to refund my money and pay me to find bugs in your games let me know
Thank you for continuing to share your experiences with "Firing the Arrow," as well as your feedback with the ongoing investigation. The development team is still looking into this quest further, which is why it was not included in TU 1.2.0. We currently have no new updates to share from the investigation. Once we have any new information available, it will be posted within this thread and within the News & Announcements forum.
The development team are still looking to collect the save files from affected players. If you play on PC/PS4, please would you be able to open a support ticket and submit your saves for investigation.
@j1mboDE - Thank you for taking the time to record a video for us. I've passed your report along to the development team for a closer look.
@Shayeza - Thank you for submitting your save files. These have been forwarded to the development team.
@Alojin - Please be assured that the development team are still looking into the NPC with coins not spawning. Once we have any more information from the investigation to share, they will be posted in the forums. I have also passed on your feedback regarding a quest reset feature.

@ubi-borealis hi! I updated my case with this and a picture of my whereabouts:
Hi! I scoured Lunden a little more with Odins sight, and I found that it still popped up two blue quest-signs at the temple of Mithras even though I’m finished there. It’s the “Liber Antiquae Deorum” paper and another, now unclickable, note at the desk there. (And the key from Octavians quest to the guy who stole his statue still pops up, unclickable if there is any correlation) Hope this helps!
Do any of you other guys have the same “glitch”? Maybe it’s connected?

In the part of the mission where you have to find a coin for the contest there's nothing, I've watched just about every video on youtube and nothing shows up in my game. Ive restarted the game a dozen times and even left to do other missions and every time i try to redo the misson same thing

@hanax2020 Hey there, and apologies for the continued aggravation caused by the error with the NPCs with coins not spawning during this quest. Currently, this issue remains under investigation, but we sincerely appreciate your continued patience and understanding throughout this process.
I encountered a problem with the quest "Firing the arrow", Ubisoft listed this problem as fixed with Patch 1.2.1 if I remember correctly, but it is still in the game. The quest mobs just won't spawn, Stowe won't walk over to the church, he just stands at the market asking me if I already have the coin (Which I haven't since the enemies won't spawn) and the questtext is empty (I have the quest title and that's it). I have no older save for this, I could restart the whole campaign but since this would delete the whole progress (I did every other area, collected early everything and I'm in the middle of the DLC) I would like to not do that.
Is there any way to fix this problem?

Hello there @Kiljael!
I'm sorry to hear that you're encountering trouble with "Firing the Arrow." Thank you for sharing your report with us. To my knowledge, this issue is still under investigation and wasn't included in TU 1.2.1. I apologise for any confusion that has been caused.
We don't yet have any new information to share from the development team regarding the missing NPC. If possible, would you be able to send us a video that shows the NPC that has the coins is missing for you in-game? The developers are still interested in collecting these videos as part of the ongoing investigation. Additionally, can you please ensure that you have an up-to-date save uploaded to the cloud? We can then notify the development team of this so they can take a closer look.
I got an up-to-date savegame in the cloud and can post a video if you tell me where to upload it.
Btw. is there a chance you could just set this queststep to "done"? Or is there like a tool so I could do it myself? Really don't bother finishing this 1 quest anymore, I just want to see the end rest of the game already
Thanks for letting me know you've uploaded a cloud save, @Kiljael! The best way to share a video with us is to first upload it to a sharing platform, such as YouTube or Google Drive, and then to send an unlisted link within this thread.
The developers have confirmed that they have no plans to introduce a "Restart Quest" feature:
Due to the structure of quests within the game, a "reset/restart quest" feature is not feasible at this stage of development. While some quests and world events allow you to walk away or reload your save in order to reset them, this is not the case for every instance within Valhalla. We strongly recommend regularly adding manual saves, especially before and after pivotal moments, to ensure you have backup states to revert to if needed.
I understand that this may not be the answer you were hoping for, and apologise for any disappointment caused. Rest assured that the development team are looking into what could potentially be causing this issue further. Once we have any new updates to share from the investigation, they will be posted within this thread.
Thank you for sending us that video, @Kiljael. I've passed this along to the development team as part of your report.
I'm sorry to hear that you feel like you need to start a new game. I would like to assure you that the development team are looking into what could potentially be causing this NPC to disappear. As soon as we have more information to share from the investigation, it will be posted within this thread
