    Hi all. First you have to complete the main story. When completed, go back to Randvi. There is one more quest which is in Hamtunscire. When that arc finishes, you'll be able to see Haytham near the Longhouse and he will start the quest to find out the head of the order.

    Hello @thefrozencreed - thank you for your reply to this thread.

    Could you please confirm the exact nature of the issue you are having? Are you unable to locate Hytham outside of the longhouse, or are you having a different issue, such as being unable to proceed due to having the incorrect number of medallions? If the former, please be advised that this issue has been considered resolved as of TU 1.3.0, and it could no longer be reproduced in the live game.

    Please refer to the information posted above by my colleague @Ubi-Borealis; can you please confirm that you have completed all of the prerequisites for starting "The Poor Fellow-Soldier", which are the following:

    • You have completed the full game, including the Hordafylke and Hamtunscire arcs
    • You have defeated all of the other Order members, with the exception of the Father

    If you find yourself unable to locate Hytham outside the longhouse and proceed, as previously directed, please send us a video showing the following:

    • Your completed quest log, showing that "Reporting on Hamtunscire" has been completed.
    • Your Order menu, showing that all members have been defeated except the Father.
    • If you have handed the medallions over to Hytham, please can you show us that you are unable to interact with him in front of the longhouse. If you haven't yet handed your medallions over to Hytham, please can you do this to see if this causes him to move in front of the longhouse.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation and any information that you provide. We'll be happy to reopen the the investigation into this issue if the information needed is received. 🙂

    @leftover_pizza yes i agree, i'm doing the same atm, speedrunning through the story and after finishing the story i'll go hunting the order.
    i was waiting for a patch, but then i realised speedrunning and skipping all dialogues and unnecessary encounters, goes faster then waiting for a patch

    Same Here, been stuck on this for weeks. I have killed all order members except for Father (Clues 5/6). No Mission to find him, no cloak given to me. Hytham is stuck in his stupid cabin, I only have 14/15 medallions to give to him and Hamptunshire unlocked and completed long before i killed everyone else in the order. Looks like i'm going to have to start everything again.

    I can’t start the quest to locate the Father, Hytham stay in the bureau and doesn’t give the quest...
    did someone knows how to fix this or if Ubisoft will patch it?

    1. Hytham did not reveal information. When I gave the 15 medallions Eivor said medallions include the fathers and Hytham and Eivor talked about who the father was. But the father was never revealed and is still alive. I got the Thor's Cape.
    2. When I gave the medallions it wasnt an option in the Alliance Map. I did it afterwards. I still have 3 medallions in my inventory but Hythem no longer has option to turn any in.
    3. "Breaking the Order" is in completed quests, "The Poor Fellow-Soldier is not there as Hythem not given it to me. He hasn't appeared outside the longhouse. Just stays in his house

    4.When I gave the medallions i havent completed every region. I completed Hamtunscire afterwards.

    I just finished the speedrun about an hour ago and got Platinum after getting the Poor Fellow Soldier quest from Hytham. Just don't turn in any medallions after you gave him 11.
    Before I went to Hytham for the 11 medallions, I checked my inventory and saw I had 27 medallions already, with 5 order members and 2 zealots still alive.
    After giving him 11 medallions (with all regions pledged), he appeared at the bench in front of the long house and triggered Poor Fellow Soldier.
    I went to the village, talked to Aelfred, and got Disorder if the Ancients and Platinum, with 5 order members and 2 zealots still alive.

    This quest line and trophy are so freaking bugged. I really wonder who the heck tested this, before releasing the game. My guess, no one did.

    @assassino89nl @Leftover_Pizza By God... you guys starting over and invest another what, 40/50 hours into 'speedrunning' just because this game is bugged as f? Dont get me wrong, I admire your free time and investment... But I just do not have the time / energy to do this. Every minute playing after so many bugs & wasted time feels like them (Ubisoft) winning.

    I do not play this game anymore, need only this throphy... I have been stuck on Sons of Ragnar for 34 days until they finally released a hotfix. Now this bug has been reported 34 days ago or so... I am so done with companies like this. This is not what you call 'support'. Meanwhile they do not react and only release new items. For money. Of course.

    I was fortunate to have some manual saves that meant I was set back "only" about 12-15 hours. I had killed all order members prior to the final mission on Christ-mass day, leaving only 1 zealot left to kill. No Thor cape in my inventory, so I figured this should still be a good pre-bug save.

    Though it still showed I had 15 medallions already! I replayed those final missions, including the wedding quest for the blacksmith. I didn't bother doing the Havi quest in Asgard, (the last one with the giant wolf). I then killed the last zealot, and it showed I had 16 medallions left to return. When I went back to the homestead Hytham was left of the entrance of the main hall (as expected not in his bureau). Since The Father still hadn't been killed you don't return the medallions yet. Sure enough the Poor Fellow... quest kicked off. When all was said and done with paying the final order member a visit I could go back and return 15 of the medallions and collect the cape. I think I ended up with 2 left in my inventory.

    Maybe a small glimmer of hope if others have manual saves going back prior to handing in the medallions.

    Not starting over. Just going back to a save closest to where I handed in 15 medallions to Hytham, before I was supposed to. Sadly, my best bet was a save that needed to redo about 4 regions to pledge to. Speedrunning these doesn't take that much time, really.
    If you skip through all the cutscenes and conversations, just going from quest to quest, it'll take less than an hour to complete most regions, depending on the work you've previously done.
    Going back a save saves time and chances to run into other early game bugs and I don't think I'd have the energy to replay the whole game again neither.

    @shax117 Then you didn't have the issue that everyone is talking about in here. You just hadn't yet finished the quest line.

    Myself, and most everyone in this thread, have completely finished the game and are still locked out of the final Order mission and revealing the father.
    If you had actually read through this you'd know that people have completed the main story, finished the Hamtunscire arc (and everything else), and yet we still can't get the Poor Fellow Soldier mission from Hytham.

    @tommyboy138 same - 130 hours

    Same here. 130hrs, but I think some people are being a bit harsh in here. I agree completely that 34 days is a long time to release a patch, and it's tough to play for so long without being able to finish. However, to say the game is "beta" is strong. People have played to the end, well over 100 hours, so i would say they got excellent value for money, and probably enjoyed every one of those hours. That said, it probably about time a patch was released - there are a LOT of issues listed on the official page.
