Tattoo artist is missing.
I don’t know if this is part of a quest or what but my tattoo artist is just MIA from his shop. He’s been gone for a while now actually. I kept thinking it may be part of the game but he isn’t back and I have cleared three more alliance quest lines and still he is missing.

At first I thought the bug had something to do with the Berkerser mission or the attack on Ravensthorpe. But a friend of me went past both these points without any problem.
He build the Barracks before these missions and the Shipyard after. Both are working fine for him.
I haven’t build either yet. I go back to an earlier save every time I try to build them and fail to talk to the NPC’s.
The differences between our games:
Installed the game on Nov 12th
Started his current game on Nov 12th
Installed the game on Monday Nov 9th Started my current game on Nov 11th (due to 1.02 patch bug I had to start over)
I really don’t see/know any major differences otherwise.
It’s hard to tell the exact stats I had 2 weeks ago since I only noticed the bug after 2 full days of playing. So I can’t really help on that part.
We will keep checking my friends game closely to see if and when the problem occurs.
I have killed every single alpha beast in this game even got the PS4 Trophy but I cannot for the love of God interact with the Tanner to make the Heads trophies for my longhouse. What is going on? Why does this game have so many bugs?
I cannot interact with the shipwright in the settlement! Meaning that I can’t edit my ship to change the head and hull. Please fix.
I cannot interact with my Jomsviking inside settlement. I created them initially but I cannot change or edit them. What is going on with this game?!

@Ubi-Borealis just out of curiosity do you have an ETA for the update yet?
I purchased the game around 2 weeks ago and since the bug I have not been bothered to play it since I'm missing so much content.
If not, do you have any info on how I can request a refund, I don't want to sound like that guy but I have been waiting patiently and it just seems like its going to get dragged out longer and longer, I would rather have my money back and purchase the game again at a later date once it is more stable.
I hope you understand, I spent £59.99 on the game and I can't even play it because I'm missing so much content that it's just not fun to play.

Thank you @Ubi-Borealis
Guys again for my english. I am from Turkey and you have to learn yourself here. Education is not very good anyway.
I started game second time. I had 80 hours playing and i finished three arc.( ragnar, soma and kingmaker quests) npcs are again same i cant speak barracks, shipyard.
So my second game has no bug.
I started after 1.0.2 patch and i did first soma arc then ragnar sons quest. By the way there were no bugs when i was playing. I checked my npcs every time after i finished quests then i saved manually then i saved my files to Ps4 save cloud -i did because if game itself would break my files i would have backups for my saves.
1.0.4 patch i downloaded before kingmaker arc and ragnar sons arch by the way and i did every quest except soma arc. After i finished all three quest with this patch i went to my settlement, everything was fine. By the way i did bjorn quest i think it not the source or attack to your settlements. This bug is different because every player had different experince.
Note: i established all buggy npc settlement things( barracks, shipyard and others) after soma and ragnar sons arc. Everytime after quest i checked every npc if i can speak with them.
This is my second playing experience i hope this will help your problems and maybe @Ubi-Borealis ubi agents too a little.
Playing on Standart PS4
Settlement level is 4
I started game with 1.0.2 patch and i played other arc with last(1.0.4) patch.
This is it. Again guys if there are people who can get ofended sorry for my english again.
Take care and stay health friends...

While I appreciate the nature of fault finding I can be bothered uploading my save files and opening support tickets as much as Ubisoft can be bothered replying to this. So Might do it in a week or 10 days. I work in a similar role and know full we this us playing for time at this point. Situation is a large portion of players are unable to play large portions of the game. This NPC thing is not even the only major bug!!! I dont believe these went unnoticed in testing. They were very likely reported and it was decided to procede without fixing. I dont have the time to lose 70 hours restarting the game nor do I have the inclination to do so. I've unistalled now instead of powering through and I'm unlikely to ever go back. This will sinply put my future participation in AC titles, which are the only ubisoft titles I'm invested in, in doubt also. I'm sad about that

So after the quest whereby Danes attack your settlement after Eivor gives a speech, certain NPCs you cannot interact with in your settlement. These being for me at least: the tattoo place, the baracks and the fishery. Please I get support for this really breaking the immersive factor...

Well, I've progressed so far into the story that I don't think any of my save files will help, to be honest. I've maxed my power level and my settlement now, and only have Wincester left for arcs. I'd still like to be able to speak to my settlement NPC's and complete the Berserker quest without losing more access to NPC's, obviously, but it seem pretty pointless at this point. For me to go out and purchase a flash drive (can't find where the hell my lady put mine) just to attach a save file that may or may not help doesn't really make sense. I mean, I've already completed all the raids, so customizing my ship or Jomsvikings is pointless, no? Very disappointed. This thread was started over two weeks ago and there's been a patch released that completely ignored this issue. Ubisoft dropped the ball, and as somebody else said recently, this will 100% affect my future purchase decisions for anything from Ubisoft. One video and one save file, you all have many now, should be sufficient in pinpointing the problem. At the very least, coming up with a temporary fix while they continue to search for the cause should be easily achieved.
I would recommend finishing a game before releasing it, or jumping on the bugs/glitches faster. This is number one bull[censored].

Herent the video to my bug with Petra, including the overview of completed missions which dont include "the huntress" mission. No interaction with Petra possibile

@chriskean86 fair play honestly, I would really like a full refund, it's only fair given the current state of the game and the fact that this doesn't even seem like a priority for them is just grinding at this point.
Now I just want my money back since the game is borderline unplayable, since I am asking for this though I somehow doubt I will get a reply from ubi on here.

Ok let me give an update.
As I said before. I wasn't sure if I was affected or not as I wasn't quite far enough to find out.
First let me say that my Settlement is only Level 2 and I only have the Blacksmith and the Stable built. Reda is here, as well.
I have now powered through the story to the end of the Grantebridgescire Arc and I've done the invasion on Ravensthorpe.
After the invasion, I seem to still be able to.interact with everyone including the Stable and Reda. So I assume I'm unaffected.
Now my question is: If I can talk to everyone immediately after the invasion, does that mean I am permanently unaffected by this bug? Even after I build more things in the settlement?

HOW CAN A GAME BE RELEASED WITH SO MANY FKING BUGS? Our hard earned money taken and not really much in exchange but a shoddy product.
Hidden One's Bureau I can't hand over order medallions or codex pages
The Crow that flies won't turn left or right
My Horse stamina only works a fraction of the times
