    @magaswagnar Not sure it made any difference to pledge. I was trying to cover everything I did after the latest update. I was originally unable to progress on two main quest, this one and Jorvik, as well as 4 world events and unresponsive drengrs. I started saving prior to trying different approaches to fixing the problems. Through some miracle I was able to finish the Jorvik quest and all the drengrs. The result was that I was not pledged to any locations on the table. I would periodically pledge to Lincolscire to see if it was fixed, but always reverted back to the save prior to pledging. The good news is that I did complete the main story lines yesterday, but I'm still can't progress on 4 world events and my settlement progress is stuck just under level 6.

    I hope they come up with a solution for those that are still stuck as I remember how frustrated I was with the lack of a solution to this issue.

    Latest patch has fixed this !! I'm so happy I can finally finish the story !! I honestly thought Ubisoft had decided to abandon this issue, so many many thanks for finally sorting it out (albeit after several months).

    @maybe2maybe3 Just solved the settlement issue - this was my fault as I missed something that needed upgrading so I only have the 4 world events.

    @Ubi-Borealis, I opened a case and submitted my save. My issue was with not receiving a quest marker after collecting the brooch.

    Do we have to wait another month for a patch? Can we please have an ETA on when this issue will finally be resolved?

    @ubi-borealis Thank you for the reply. I tried the workaround and it did not work for me. I will re-open and re-submit my save files again.

    Thank you.

    @captainjack03 @Ubi-Borealis I re-opened my support case but the upload system is not letting me upload my files again (a different issue from before, but still not letting me continue). I included a OneDrive link in the ticket. Please confirm the support team received and downloaded them. Thank you.

    Hello all!

    Thank you for updating this thread with your experiences with "In the Absence of Ealdorman." We currently have no new updates to share from the ongoing investigations. Please be assured that we have notified the development team that the marker still does not seem to be appearing for some of you, and I have forwarded the reports that have been shared. Once we have any new information to share from the investigation, it will be posted within this thread.

    If you are still unable to proceed in "In the Absence of an Ealdorman" because the marker doesn't show, please don't hesitate to update this thread. If you're able to provide a video showing you have TU 1.2.0 installed, and that you still have no marker available, this will also be helpful for the investigation.

    @heathermasons69 - Thanks for opening a support ticket! Your save has been forwarded to the development team for a closer look. Currently, we're unable to speculate on an ETA for when this issue will be resolved. Once we have any information about this from the development team, it will be shared within the forums.

    @captainjack03 - Thank you for trying the workaround for us. I'm sorry to hear that the issue persists. Thanks for taking the time to submit new save files as well. I was able to collect them via the link you provided, and they've now been forwarded to the development team.

    Thank you! 😊

    Hello @ubi-borealis,

    I'm still affected with both bugs : "No quest marker" and "Bodies to investigate in Roaring Meg's Spring are missing" but I already opened a ticket months ago where they asked me to provide save files which I did, Tiket number is 13448809. Should I provide new ones ?

    I wouldlike to provide a video, but where do I see the version of my game please ?

    Hello there @DonFurinkazan!

    Thank you for letting us know which issues you are still affected by. I'm sorry that this is preventing your from progressing further in the quest. Would you be able to provide us with updated save files, following TU 1.2.0? You can also view the version of your game on the main menu screen (where you would load a game from). It will be shown in the bottom right-hand corner.

    Please let us know when you've updated your support ticket so we can take a closer look.

    Thanks! 🙂

    @ubi-borealis

    So I did provide new save files updated in the latest version 1.2.0 on the ticket I mentionned earlier (13448809). However I'm still unable to find the version of my game, even in the bottom right-hand corner of my title screen where there is only a button to the patch notes.

    Thank you for providing those updated save files for us, @DonFurinkazan! I've passed these along to the development team. The patch notes showing as 1.2.0 show that you have the most recent TU installed. Apologise for any confusion caused by my description of this. You do have the most recent update installed.

    Thank you 😊

    I manage to record a video that shows the state of my save where we can see both bugs but I was not able to upload it on a support ticket because of its size. Is it OK if I upload it to youtube and send you the link ?

    Since launch I've given Ubisoft two separate attempts to fix this game-breaking quest. I've renewed Ubisoft+ because of it and now wasted another $15 because Ubisoft isn't properly fixing their games. Why did I choose Ubisoft+ instead of buying the game? Because I had a feeling that this was going to be the case, just didn't realize it was going to be a later game-breaking bug.
    Please add a skip option or if you have the brooch put in coding to automatically trigger the hand off to the NPC. This is getting infuriating at this point.

    Another update and still no fix. Still no objective marker and the nurse at the hospice still won't talk. This is bordering on the ridiculous. I just want to finish the damn story.

    Same, the new update has not solved the problem or the glitch for me. I am in 120 hours i the game.

    So, I’ve looked around and seen a lot of people have problems with this quest but not this one. I’m no longer able to fulfill the requirements of the “Search the Hospice” part of the quest. All of the workers are still there including the nun with the information on the bathhouse but there’s no longer an option to interact with them (no text bubble) no matter what I do. I’ve tried to do other quests, fighting around them, reloading another save, fast travel, change genders, and pretty much anything else I’ve found on the forums. All I have left on the map are Lincolnshire, Suthexe, and Hamtunscire. I really wanted to have all the territories I could pledged before I continued, so this bug is aggravating (not to mention I can’t fulfill the Kill the Order Members quest either) .

    When searching the hospice I talked to the healer who sad that I was to go to the bath house. But the objective is stuck at ”Search the hospice”. Now I can’t talk to the healers and ... yeah I’m stuck.
    It would be nice to restart this mission.

    Hello,

    I can't progress in "In the Absence of an Ealdorman" quest - basically there's no quest marker. When opening "Quests" tab, the current objective is "Return the brooch to Hunwald" - that brooch I do already possess in my inventory.

    Tried to manually savegame and load it again but still no marker does appear.

    This behaviour persists after every title update so far including the newest one, 1.2.0
