    I am currently in the midst of the Firebrand Quest and already have killed everyone outside and inside the Church where the big Bonfire is.
    Problem is: The REAL Firebrand is neutral to me. I can't attack her in any way of form and my reticule turns grey when aiming at her.
    Obviously this prevent the Main Story from going on.

    My personal guess is that this is bugged due to me maybe clearing lootable items within the church before I even started the quest? No idea.

    "Burning the Firebrand" is the proper Questname btw.

    Hello! I'm sorry to read you're facing this issue.

    This doesn't appear to be a known issue, would it perhaps be possible to provide a video of your experience please?

    In the meantime, here are some suggestions to try -

    • Fast travel, then come back
    • Meditate


    Thank you!

    This is a picture of it. Not sure how to make a video tbh. The Firebrand here is neutral and just always going into that corridor, doing nothing. When I use odin vision she gets tagged with a green dot and the reticule of the bow turns grey when aiming at her. Not sure if that tells you anything more of how this npc may be flagged. (Neutral, Ally, etc.)

    @ubi-raziel As for meditating and fast travel. I did that. I even restarted the entire quest with a previous savegame but it always ends up like this. My guess is that this is due to me looting the place before? I will add a map where you can see what Wealth etc. I had looted before I started the quest:

    Now a bigger and maybe bette and more helpful screen of my problem:

    Hello again, thank you for providing so much information! The images especially are very helpful.

    I have forwarded everything to our QA team. They will try to reproduce the issue themselves by first clearing the area, then accepting the quest.

    We'll let you know if we have any questions!

    Hey folks,

    In order to assist the team in reproducing this issue, can you upload your save file via our support website, so it can be passed on?

    @ubi-swaggins Found the issue thanks to a reddit comment.

    The problem is: If you looted the Church before you may have opened the barricaded door. Enetering the Barricaded doors during the quest won't trigger the cutscene to turn Firebrand hostile.

    Instead one has to enter through the chruch tower to trigger the Cutscene still, even if we already have unlocked the curch otherwise.

    @fiesermoep Thanks for the extra information, I have passed this onto the team to assist with their investigation.

    Could you all please contact Ubisoft Support via Facebook and Twitter, so we can gather save files to send to the team to help them with their investigation?

    Want to pitch in and say this worked for me as well. Entering through the following "unfinished window" with the glass resting underneath the circular entrance upon the tower was the only way to initiate the cutscene and get the glitched NPC to be recognized:



    I had also looted the building beforehand, so entering through previously locked/barred doors left the Firebrand in the exact same position as the one in @FieserMoep 's screenshot. When I went through the above entryway and down the stairs, the cutscene eventually started.
