    Hello!

    I have merged a few threads together as you appear to be discussing the same topic.

    Our dev team are aware of this and are working on a fix!

    the key is completely impossible to pick up. I’ve tried reloading saves, and even playing side quests to get it to reset and nothing is working. What can I do ?

    Currently playing on Xbox one. While doing the quest "In The Abscence of an Ealdorman" After finding the Ealdorman dead in the castle I was tasked with finding something to give to his son to show his fate. My quest tracker never updated to show this new quest it just remained empty with the title of the quest. After searching the entire room I realized I already had the brooch in my inventory from when I had explored this area prior to the mission looking for wealth locations. I've tried restarting my game, going back to a save before the mission, exiting and re-entering the quest area, I even tried just going back to the son but none of this worked. The only thing I could possibly think of that might fix this issue would be to go back to a save before I first explored the area and looted the chest but that was probably 30+ hours of gameplay prior to doing this mission. If the game can't recognize that the brooch has already been looted then why allow it to be looted before the quest in the first place? Can someone please take a look at this because right now I'm forced to sit out this entire zone and my main story is just put on hold.

    Hello,


    For me I was able to go up to the investigation puts the last point to be investigated does not allow me to interact (Scroll caves in the Roaring Meg's Spring).
    I'm stuck too. Asgard and I had a bug AEC quest "defensive measures" now when I go to Asgard I die because I'm not in the famous shield.

    During the quest, when you find the body of Hunwald's father you are supossed to find the brooch as proof of his death, however I had already found it before starinting the Lincolnscire Story arc (while I was exploring) and the game doesn't recognize the brooch that is in my inventory. I can't progress any further from the part where you're supossed to find the brooch. I tried reloading the save but since I already had the brooch in my inventory the bug still happens.

    I have a similar bug on PC, when i went out of the caves during the mission i went for the castle, but on the way there i came across one of missions for Reda and i finished it, then i turned the game of as i had to do something else. Later when I turned the game back on, the mission stopped tracking, i can choose it in the quest menu, but it doesnt appear in my HUD or any markers on the map. Because i remembered where i needed to go, i went to the castle and found the brooch but i could talk to the women next to the body, then i tried going to Lincoln to give the brooch to Hunwald but i could, so now i am stuck and cant finish the game. When that happend i was 30+ hours in so i went and completed every other region and now this is the only one that remains. I hope Ubisoft fixes this, because i really don't want to replay 70+ hours of gameplay at this point.
    I also tried verifiying files and everything else listed above but it dind't work

    I tried verifiying the game files, reverting to an old autosave, nothing helped. I really hope this gets fixed as I really like the story and want to finish it soon

    So I started the Lincolnsore arc and as I always do in any new area I went exploring for new Armor/Chests and Etc. Well I went into the old Lincoln Sewers and got all the stuff in it and left. I started the story Arc and started the quest In the absence of an eldorman which leads you into the sewers and out to roaring meg's spring. Well I get to the End where roaring meg's spring is and the body's I'm supposed to see and search arent there and I've loaded and reloaded and fast traveled and did everything I can and it wont correct. I'm lost and dont want to start over because I went ahead and finished all other area/alliances hoping it would sort fix it.

    Ran into this problem yesterday. Incredibly annoying to have to grind to a dead halt like this. I hope they fix this in their next patch.

    I’ve gotten stuck on the mission “in the absence of a ealdorman”. Whilst exploring before taking on the quest I found the brooch and now in the quest it won’t allow me to progress with out searching the box. Is there a way around this as I found this a while back and will loose a lot of progress.

    any help will be grateful

    Hey there,

    Sorry to hear that you are not able to progress this quest.

    Can you provide us with a video detailing this issue?
