Hi the legendary animal in sciropescire the beast of the hills is bugged for me. Instead of being underground eating from a barrel he is spawned above the ground near an enemy camp. If I attack him he does not fight back and if I kill him it does not count as clearing the mystery. I have tried saving and loading, leaving the area and coming back and also leaving the animus but nothing fixes it. I'm also still waiting for the daughters of lerion bug to be fixed that I reported over two weeks ago. I'm on x box one x. Thank you.

The bear is on top of the cave, not in it. If I go up top he is there, stuck in an animation. Reloading older saves do not work. Fast travel does not work either. I recorded a video of the problem. Anyone have any ideas?

Hi the legendary animal in sciropescire the beast of the hills is bugged for me too. Instead of being underground eating from a barrel he is spawned above the ground near an enemy camp. If I attack him he does not fight back and if I kill him it does not count as clearing the mystery. I have tried these actions:
- saving and loading
- leaving the area and coming back
- leaving the animus
Nothing fixes it. I'm on PS4. I saw another topic with the same problem but on Xbox (I actually copied the description of the bug since it is the same one: https://discussions.ubisoft.com/topic/85790/legendary-animal-beast-of-the-hills-bugged?lang=en-US )
More than 70h of play, this screws my Platinum objective, please help. Thank you.

Located the area for the legendary bear, however it will not spawn, been back 10 times now and still not spawning. is anyone else having this issue, obviously without this it will impact numerous trophies. Its bad enough having half the npcs bugged out.

if you mean the brown/black one (terror of the hills?), mine spawned directly above his cellar in front of an enemy camp. was able to defeat him without him fighting back

If you're referring to the bear in Jotunheim I had to jump down into the pit with him to get him to activate.
You also might have to do part of the storyline and hear the 3 ladies, Destiny, Fate and can't remember the name of the 3rd one talk about the Bear, the Serpent and the Tower for it to activate. I've had this happen before with having to do storyline for Wealth, Mystery or Artifact to be reachable.

Killed the beast of the hill and won’t give me the award and won’t let me fight the bear again

When I go to this fight, the bear is glitched just outside the camp above. I can kill the bear, but it doesn't even attempt to hit me. When I run back to the cave, the fight completes. I have loaded every save, with the same result. I'm on ps4.

Hey all! Thanks for the information regarding this, as well as sharing your own findings! morphus83 - I'm curious to know if you were able to find the bear in the end, or are you still having trouble locating it?

Not sure if it's just me but when I found the beast of the hills, there was no creature in the actual underground dungeon, and I found it above ground roughly right above where its supposed to be, just sitting outside the nearby camp. I can fight/wound/kill it and it doesn't respond, nor does it give me the "legendary creature defeated" when its killed. I've fast traveled to other parts of the map since then but have no tried reinstalling.
(picture: it stays in this position and then when I hit it it makes the "enemy spotted you" sound effect and it stands on four legs but still does not move or fight)
EDIT: I've seen several other people have this glitch too

UPDATE: per someone else's comment, after killing the beast up near the camp I went back down to it's lair underground and it did give me the "legendary creature defeated" notification. It just wasnt where it was supposed to be and didn't fight back at all.

Ran into this bug the other day. The Bear will be ABOVE Uriconium Ruins just outside the entrance to the enemy camp. Bear will NOT react to the player. Killing the bear will net you the 2 skill points, but no head.
After killing the bear, go into Uriconium Ruins all the way to the end. Go under the wall through the hole to it's "lair" and it'll update as having been killed. IF you already killed it and now are stuck with it on your autosave, entering the lair should fix it.
I did this and was able to complete the last Hunter's Hut Legendary quest and got the reward vs. waiting who knows how long for it to get fixed.
P.S. Super easy kill. Manual Save before fighting to be safe. If for some reason it doesn't update once in lair AFTER killing it above, reload the save, and use a knock back attack (Dive of Valkeries or similar) and remove your weapons from both hands if high level and knock it back towards the lair above ground. If need be, go lair, pin mark on map above your marker, then go and knock it back to that area. Kill it (2 skill points will pop up), then enter lair (head and quest complete).
