    @ubiexcellent

    Any update on when this will actually be fixed? Much like the comments above me, this mission is stopping me from proceeding. He’s stuck on the road about 100m from where he started, on PS5

    Outrageous this is still not addressed.

    Hello to you all. I am very sorry to hear that this issue with Aelfgar persists after patch 1.1.0. In order to assist the developers with their new investigation into the issue, I'll need to gather some details from you all. If you could all copy the questions below into a new post and reply to each, I would really appreciate it:

    1. Which platform do you play on?
    2. Following 1.1.0, has there been any change in Aelfgar's behaviour, however slight? i.e. is he now stuck in a different spot, does he continue to talk despite being stuck, etc.?
    3. In terms of workarounds, have you tried forcefully moving him to the objective by pushing him with your horse? Have you also tried reloading an older save prior to starting the objective involving travelling with him, to see if he moves the full distance afterward?
    4. Have you experienced any similar issues in previous quests? Or is this the first issue where this kind of issue with accompanying / escorting an NPC has occurred?


    If possible, please also provide a video of the issue and / or a save file. These are integral to the investigation and will allow the team to investigate in much more depth. Thank you!

    @demonsugar Please do not discuss unrelated issues in this thread. There are more appropriate threads for almost all of the issues you mention, and you should post on those instead of derailing this thread: cairns on PC, specific big / small fish do not spawn, ways to unlock barred doors (in this case using incendiary powder traps) 🙂 For the infinite silver issue, I couldn't actually seem to find a fully relevant thread using terms like infinite money / infinite silver, so if you have any information regarding this, please start your own thread. Thanks!

    Please see my answers below:

    1. Which platform do you play on?
      1. Xbox Series X
    2. Following 1.1.0, has there been any change in Aelfgar's behaviour, however slight? i.e. is he now stuck in a different spot, does he continue to talk despite being stuck, etc.?
      1. Before the patch, he was outside of the first cottage from where you meet him at the beginning of the quest. If I attacked random approaching enemies, he would just stand there. After the patch, he was sitting outside of that cottage but when I attacked random approaching enemies he would jump in and fight. I used this new "feature" to lure enemies towards him and slowly guided him all the way to the castle out of boredom. After getting him to the castle and realizing that this was not going to work I fast traveled away. When I tried to find him again he was standing outside of the camp where his men are. He now remains outside of that camp motionless.
    3. In terms of workarounds, have you tried forcefully moving him to the objective by pushing him with your horse? Have you also tried reloading an older save prior to starting the objective involving travelling with him, to see if he moves the full distance afterward?
      1. I have tried moving him along as mentioned in the answer #2. He does not move forward on his own after.
    4. Have you experienced any similar issues in previous quests? Or is this the first issue where this kind of issue with accompanying / escorting an NPC has occurred?
      1. I have not experienced any other issues on previous quests.

    @grizzly9-80 Thanks for letting us know what platform you're playing on. Please answer each question my colleague Ubi-Woofer requested to the best of your ability in order to aid the team's investigation.

    @lupusjes I've added this footage to our report. Many thanks for sharing that with us!

    @phil3765 I greatly appreciate you answering these questions and have added your response to our on-going report. 😊

    1.Which platform do you play on? Xbox One S

    2.Following 1.1.0, has there been any change in Aelfgar's behaviour, however slight? i.e. is he now stuck in a different spot, does he continue to talk despite being stuck, etc.? No change in behavior since 1.1.0, he is standing in the same spot on the dirt road leading to the camp, he is holding sword on his shoulder and behind his neck, he randomly looks up toward sky, then looks straight ahead. He does not talk.

    3.In terms of workarounds, have you tried forcefully moving him to the objective by pushing him with your horse? Yes, I have tried the following unsuccessful :
    -running/ bumping into him with Eivor, running into him & pushing him w/ horse- he will stumbles a little in place but not really move.
    -shot w/ multiple arrows head, face, chest, abdomen, back, arms, legs (used predator & hunter regular, fire, incendiary, etc) - doesn’t even flinch
    -hitting with sword- I spent abt 45 mins moving him little by little hitting him with my sword, he would stumble forward and backward, and would even crouch periodically. With successive hits He stumbled forward with enough momentum to actually get to the camp gate, I was hoping that would trigger something-it didn’t work.
    -I brought a horse from the camp to Aelfgar to see if he would get on the horse and allow me to follow him- no, that didn’t work.

    Have you also tried reloading an older save prior to starting the objective involving travelling with him, to see if he moves the full distance afterward? Yes, No change in behavior since 1.1.0, he is standing in the same spot on the dirt road leading to the camp, he is holding sword on his shoulder and behind his neck, he randomly looks up toward sky, then looks straight ahead. He does not talk.

    4.Have you experienced any similar issues in previous quests? Or is this the first issue where this kind of issue with accompanying / escorting an NPC has occurred? The only other issue I had was with the side quest with the pregnant woman (this was before patch 1.1.0) the pregnant woman would get on your horse, then about 1/2 way up the hill, she would spontaneously dismount the horse then just stand there. We hadn’t reached the destination to finish the side quest. After patch 1.1.0 released this was fixed.

    I can send video and screenshots if it would be helpful

    @wadeness123 Thanks for following up with those answers! I've added those to our report. 😊

    @grizzly9-80 Just to confirm, do you mean to say that Eivor is stuck, or is Aelfgar stuck?

    @ubiexcellent I was able to progress the mission forward by bumping into Aelfgar over and over again until he made it to the table where the map is at the camp. I had to bump him into the left side of the table and the mission continued. I am no longer stuck!

    @phil3765 I am glad to hear that the previously posted workaround to forcefully push Aelfgar to the table allowed you to proceed! Thanks for sharing that the workaround was effective for you!

    @ubi-woofer

    Was excited to hear there was a new patch today, disappointed to realise this still isn’t fixed. Haven’t been able to play the game since start of December due to this bug remaining.

    Ive been waiting on a patch for this since november. I havent touched the game since, please can you throw in a hot patch or at least acknowledge that it will be in a patch. My google search history has been filled every single day with "new Valhalla update" and I was overwhelmed with excitement just to find out that it didn't make the patch list. Im just a guy trying to enjoy and finish the game.

    @ubi-woofer After patch 1.1.1 was released I am still not able to progress. Aelfgar is still stuck in the road and not moving despite trying to move home by pushing, arrows, and kicking on horse.

    Is there anyway that this issue will be fixed so we may all actually progress/finish the game?

    @ubi-woofer It has been 2 months since I have been able to play this game. Despite saying there has been a fix a whole patch ago I have had no improvement to the issue. I really hope that the fact you have acknowledged the tedious 'work around' (which does not work for me) means you are still working on this issue and not 'putting it aside'. I would appreciate it if you would at least re-add the known issues list back to the patch notes as that is the only information the community has on the progress you are hopefully making. Its such a shame to have problems like this when overall the game is fantastic.
    Many thanks
