Locked Moved SOLVED [RESOLVED] After bringing the jars to the builder, "Defensive Measures" does not progress | POST HERE2 Likes/238 Replies/5065 Viewssonglover124 6 posts
I hope this is the right place to post about this. Although my issues is not with the jars, I cannot complete the defensive measures quest since when it says "kill all invaders" none show up. I have to actively bait the ones I can find and even then when I kill them nothing happens. Please help.

@songlover124 I have the same problem. I got past the jar part but now I am stuck in the last objective of the mission. Killing the invaders. Circle is red color. Some attack but others are about 50-100m away and wont come by themself. I can't leave the circle as u lose health when u do so. Even with mods (unlimited health) killing all of the enemies that are far away doesn't help because they just respawn. This mission is deffo broken in many ways as ppl keep reporting different kind of progress issues.
Yet, @Ubi-Borealis and his/her colleagues are not working as we the community can expect them to on a game breaking bug. This game is actually worse than unity for me because unity didn't have game breaking bugs for me.

Meanwhile, the nth bug-fixing update is out tomorrow.
It fixes the notoriously game breaking issues of the Ostara festival, and - so it says - it makes the Ostara missions RE-PLAYABLE
SO IT *CAN* BE DONE!
WHAT A MIRACLE! Who'd have thought! The marvels of technology, huh?
Well, then again, who cares, it's not like we're stuck with a major issue since november. Keep on fixing the shoelaces of a hanging corpse, buddies. It's not like it's already dead.

In the patch before the last one, we were told that Defensive Measures was being worked on. It hasn’t been fixed since the last patch. Is there any update on this? Like me, there’s a lot of gamers stuck in this mission and can’t continue Asgard. Please give us so idea if or when it’s going to be fixed.

I have finished the story but I am stuck on this bug and can't finish the rest of the game (Xbox One). I have even looked back on the "under investigation" section and this mission is no longer on the list? Why has it been removed.
Ubisoft, you want me to buy the DLC's ... yeah right.
All you seem to be worried about is fixing the buggy festivals and not the main game. This was the first game that I bought early but I will never be doing that again.
I hope someone there has enough courage to put this bug back up again and get it fixed.
I think I may go back to Origins like so many other players as it is a much better finished game.

"We deployed 4 server-side hotfixes to address issues preventing players from proceeding with Old Wounds, Unholy Father, The Thegn of Lincoln, and Falling Stars."
Sorry, is this a joke?
@Ubi-Borealis how is this possible? Can we at least know if our only chance is to wait for the game to go full circle with the DLC in the hope of not getting stuck when we re-play the game from the beginning? It's been six months. SIX. If there's no ETA yet, could we AT LEAST know ---> *WHY* <--- a game-stopping bug is not being addressed while even secondary missions are??
I mean, an official response from the tech guys sayin' "Hey, sorry, it's just a damn mess. We gave up. When we're done with the DLC, just start over and remember to save the game before this moron asks you to bring him the jars. See ya".
That would be REALLY useful, at least I'd stop coming to this forum to post these frustrating messages.
Do you get that is not just an inconvenience? It's PART OF THE DAMN PLOT, it BLOCKS trophies, it SCREWS the ending.
I have no words (well, except I have them, obviously)
Why is it that multiple dlc's have been released WITHOUT the solving of these issues? I have done everything else you can do in this game, save for the river raids, and the fish, and animals that are still not spawning. I reached all of the spots in Asgard, collected all but one shard which isn't available of course, until AFTER the main Asgard quests. which are locked in a state of limbo. I have run around the map, trying all of these tricks to try and fix it, but nothing has worked. I have recorded this issue over and over again to show what happens, but this forum has a limit on on size. (go figure). Despite saving in Asgard upon waking up at another location outside of this quest, and with the quest not selected, everytime i do go back to Asgard, i go back to that bubble, that useless moron painting a rock, and a few giant blue smurfs coming at me while the majority of them stand around oblivious to my existance. They used to all attack me, but I think maybe the whole max leveling thing has made me less visable. idk.
If i run out of the bubble, I start to slowly die until i return to bubble. If i quickly fast travel after running out of the bubble, I still die slowly when I respawn. But, if I kill the giant smurfs and am no longer I guess triggering the enemy sight, I can fast travel to another location in Asgard without dying. What good that does. I can still see the bubble when I do this. and I can return to it as well. I have tried quite a bit to kill the stupid man painting the rock, but the ba****d is invincible and oblivious to his surroundings. I can get him to walk a short distance from the rock but calling in my glorious steed and standing in the builders spot. he walks away for a moment, then comes right back and attempts to wiggle his way back to his spot.
I have never wanted to kill a character more in my life than I do that stupid builder. (Negan doesn't seem so bad anymore). if he would just die, that would solve everything. but no.
This is beyond ridiculous. paid $120 for this crap and I can't even finish it near half a year later. Not only that, the stuff that came with my double costing purchase you giver to everyone, what exactly did I get for it then? other than a broken game, and oh btw, the gear, yeah, that disappears and reappears everytime I play. resets the runes, and the level as well. I believe the gear was called Berserker. Yeah, everytime I load the game, it says, "loading add ons". and it resets them. that's what I paid $60 extra for. Thanks.
@ashleysosa44 file size limit, "Maximum File size, 2048kb..... (2mb). So I try to reduce file size right..... Well, now another error appears, "Image dimensions are too big".
So I manage to get screenshots of my in game screenshots via phone to bring the file size down to .94mb..... and now it isn't the size that matters, it's the "Dimensions". The shape...
I mean, clearly these need to be uploaded because it seems that something that takes 6 months to fix is obviously due to a lack of resources, but you sure don't make it easy, do you. On the multitude of previous posts and errors from the various bugs we were told to gather and provide the screenshots on it so they know what we are talking about.
So now I am going to be over cropping my screenshots, of my screenshots and keep fingers crossed that the resulting image that can be uploaded has enough pixels to be legible.
and maybe stack the video screen recordings to a youtube video. idk.
also, I do have 5 more screenshots of the screenshots, but these 3 posted had the majority of the specific issue which is defensive measures.
I have been documenting the other bugs as well so those are mixed in a bit. Like the gear resetting, fishing bugs, the straight up save data lost and missions resetting, undoing progress, other missions that were stuck but those were patched, etc... lots of bugs. Lots of screenshots and recordings of them.
But the videos are too large in file size to share even when cutting the 1 min videos resolution to the lowest setting I have available which is 720x480. Then cutting that 1 minute video to 6 parts of 10 seconds each...
The 10 second low res videos are STILL TOO BIG to post. (8mb)
So cut down further....
5 seconds low res video clip is STILL TOO BIG with a size of 4.45mb. (More than double the limit).
I'm not trying any further, since at 2 seconds it would take 30 clips to summarize just 1 single 1 minute video.
[30 1-minute vids cut down to 30 2-second clips = 900 video clips.
Level 409 + 52 mastery points .
256 hours of gameplay. (10 straight days)

@Claiger_ - Thanks for providing us with a video link. It looks like the video has been deleted from the folder. Would you be able to upload it again for us so the team can take a closer look?
@songlover124 & @SkypherDZN - I'd recommend checking out this megathread for more information into the investigation with the shield.
@WolandJunker - I'm afraid that this information is not available to us, and we would not be able to speculate on what is causing this issue to happen in-game. Once we have more information made available to share, it will be posted within the forums. I apologise for any inconvenience caused by this.
@ashleysosa44 - I appreciate you taking the time to share your screenshots with us. In future, if you'd like to share so many images, I'd recommend sharing them as a link via an online sharing platform (such as Google Drive or OneDrive) to prevent spamming the thread. This will also help you to avoid any trouble with uploading the images to the forum itself. I would also recommend uploading any videos to a sharing platform (such as YouTube or either of the drive platforms listed above) and posting a link. I've merged together several of the posts you've made into a single post.
If you're encountering other issues, I would recommend checking out the megathread list and sharing these reports in the dedicated thread. I know that we already have megathreads for missing fish, gear resetting and lost save data already, so please feel welcome to post in these megathreads if you haven't already.
