    Hey so as the title says I’m trying to do the quest The Hunting Grounds but the npc Olav won’t walk he is just stood in his cave.

    this quest bugged out a long time ago so I don’t have a previous save to load back up and I’m 118 hours into the game.

    I have tried saving right next to him and loading the game back up with the quest tracked and untracked but does nothing. I have tried going back to England and Norway and coming back with the quest tracked and untracked but again does nothing. I have tried having a feast in my long house and then going back but didn’t do anything.

    I was hoping that the 1.1.0 update might help and it fixed a few other follow type quests.

    with Olav not moving he does open up the merchants for me so I can’t get weapons etc but that’s not really a problem as I can kill all enemies in the map except the legendary animal. It is the fact that this quest needs to complete to that Gorm spawns that is frustrating me as I only need Gorm and the head of the order to finish them off

    i do remember that when it first bugged out I went and got the chest behind him instead of following him as I didn’t think it would be a problem

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    Stand on the fire. Once you get a bit burnt he starts to move. Also untracked quest beforehand.

    @garbo1984
    I have the same issue AND i also opened the chest first after the cutscene rather than following him so that actually might be the issue.
    Also i cannot interact with any merchants etc, but like you i killed/looted everything else on the map i could (including killing the legendary animal with bare fists :P).




    Also i have bug for the "Saint Faith" - world event

    at the first encounter i was able to interact with the priest (but he were near the tree and not where he should).
    After the talking i went to the nun but nothing happened so i restarted the game, now they are in the correct positions but i cannot do anything, there's no interaction with the priest anymore so i cannot finish the world event. The priest just keeps yelling no matter how many times i restarted.

    I tried to verify the game files for both bugs, but they are still there

    I'm playing on PC with Xbox controller.

    Thanks for the reply and letting me know I’m not alone, I’m playing on ps5. This bug has taken the wind outta my sails and I’m starting to lose interest since I can’t finish killing all the order

    This worked for me. Stand in the fire until you die. After the reload, Olav started walking. I don’t know if it mattered or not, but I did have the quest untracked too when I did it.

    I untracked the quest, fast travelled back to England and then back to Vinland again.
    Tracked the quest and ran to Olav.
    When I arrived he immediately started walking.

    Hello! Thank you everyone for contacting us, and I am sorry for the late reply. I appreciate the workarounds and video provided as well! I have forwarded this information up to the Game team for review. Additionally, if you have not already and are playing on PS4 or PS5, please restore your licenses and then test your game again as this can sometimes resolve in-game issues. If playing on PC, as Myyra. mentioned, try verifying your game files.

    If this continues, please create a ticket and attach your save files. Then return here and post your ticket number so I can forward up your save files to the Game team. Thank you, and I greatly appreciate your patience and assistance!

    Sadly there is no way to get my save file off my ps5 as I have the ps5 version of Valhalla, it is still worth me submitting a ticket?

    also I tried doing the license thing and it didn’t help but thanks for the suggestion

    I'm sorry for the delay in getting back to you! That is alright if you cannot provide a save file. Do you think you could send me a video showing Olav not moving? Or an image showing where he is currently standing.
