    Same issue (PS4), the ability stays grey when I apply it so I don't apply it anymore until we get a fix for it. Got the ability in my inventory but it stays grey and can't be used. Have the exact same problem with the Raven distracting ability.

    I got the Book of Knowledge of "Man's best friend" ability first then got the ability again after doing the side quest "A little Problem" but the Ability itself is still LVL 1 how can I fix this?

    I’m no longer able to activate Man’s Best Friend, Throwing Axe Fury and Harpoon Impalement. They are all greyed out once assigned. I was able to use Men’s best friend until today.

    Hello

    I've tried several times to put the Ability in my Loadout...from Level 1 and recently got Level 2. it shows up "Gold" in the Ability Loadout but out in the field it stays grayed out no matter. The Crow works fine and have it to Level 2.

    So, I know that the known issue with this ability is that the quest associated with it doesn't provide the ability as a reward.

    For me, I got the ability, but I think I finished Lunden first so it led to the ability being stuck at level 1. I thought I just needed to find a book of knowledge to upgrade this ability but apparently it's bugged cause I got every book in the map already.

    Hello to you both! 🙂 It sounds like you both have the same issue but through slightly different circumstances, so I merged your two threads together and want to ask a few questions to each of you.

    @BradiMherz Can you please confirm that when you completed "A Little Problem", the grant of the "Man's Best Friend" ability appeared in the centre of your screen and you were able to then use the level 1 ability if enabling it from the abilities menu? Are you able to provide screenshots showing that you both have access to the ability and also that you have collected the Book of Knowledge for level 2 from Grepelgate Fort in Oxenefordscire?

    @Hellgator You mentioned that you looted the Book of Knowledge for level 2 before completing "A Little Problem" - did you receive the ability at all when having looted the book? How long approximately did you play (in-game hours) between obtaining the book, and completing "A Little Problem"? Are you able to provide screenshots showing that you both have access to the ability and also that you have collected the Book of Knowledge for level 2 from Grepelgate Fort in Oxenefordscire?

    Thank you both! 🙂

    Yes, I remember the ability being usable when I first picked up the book. I would say about 5-7 hours passed between the book and completing the quest.

    I have screenshots for proof, but I apologize for the bad quality: https://imgur.com/a/iJWuZeh

    Man's Best Friend Bug. After completing the 'A little Problem' quest I didn't achieve the mans best friend ability, I completed quest, named the wolf and had the wolf in my longhouse, but no ability, I read on forums that if the wolf bugs out and runs off before the end, which it did, it wont activate and they suggested redoing it, I however had already done too much to go back to redo the quest on an older save. I went to Londen and got the other half so I can call the wolf, but I am now forever unable to get level 2 of the ability until it is resolved at your end, I suggest making it so whoever has completed the quest gets that half of the ability(seems obvious), rather than tying it to a sprite making it back with the children, especially since it is bugged to run off right before you enter the village. If I hadn't checked forums, I wouldn't have even known the quest was supposed to give me this ability. It's disappointing and made me a little frustrated with the game, killing the immersion and experience for me currently, so please, if it is possible, fix it for everyone who's completed the quest retroactively in the next update. I guess I will know you've fixed it when I magically have level 2 mans best friend, lol. I'm sure I am not the only one who has had this issue, so hopefully you resolve it, as I was really loving the game until this happened. cheers.

    Hey all! Thanks for the reports here. We'd seen a few instances where players who were encountering this issue had seen it resolved following the latest patch on the 27th, but it appears things may be persisting. Thank you for providing information as this is being looked into once more. For investigational purposes, it'd be a great help to have those still affected by this create a new support case, then attach a copy of your save game files to it for review.

    Thanks for your patience as this gets looked into. We'll be sure to update this thread with any pertinent information as it becomes available.

    I am unable to even submit the case. (Possibly *user error). 😉
    What category, Issue Type, and Issue should it be under?

    I am currently unable to select an "Issue" based on any combination of Category and Issue Types.

    I am still experiencing the issue.
    The wolf is in the Longhouse, but unable to do anything, and is greyed out on my menu. Stuck at level 1.
    I believe i may have used a fast travel after the mission, but before returning to Raventhorpe. But can't remember for sure.
