    Hello all!

    I've merged together several threads about being unable to proceed in "The Case of the Missing Ale" together, so we can keep all this information in one place. Apologies if any ongoing discussions were disrupted by this.

    This issue was marked as resolved following the end of the Yule Festival. I will now be locking this thread.

    If you require help with any other issues, please check out our megathread list, or open up a new thread.

    Keep an eye out for future events within our News & Announcements forum, as well on the official website.

    Thanks all! 😊

    @gonzovg thanks alot. This helped! Mine was buged a little different tho.
    I had put the barrel down for a sec turned around and it disappeared. But still shown the marker way off to bring the barrel even tho I no longer held the barrel.
    After I ignored the quest for a while I went back to utbech and the barrel respawned and followed your video. Thanks again.

    I´m having a different issue where there is no marker after the fight with Ake. I can find the (unmarked) barrel in the bandit hut and pick it up, but the quest does not progress and when I carry it to the boat Ake is nowhere to be found.. so I'm basically stuck on this quest now. I've already restarted the quest several times but same result every time. Any suggestions?

    Hey folks.

    Can I ask you if possible to provide images and even better video of this issue please so we can check whether this is a known issue or we need to flag this with the Valhalla team for further investigation? Thanks!

    @bologna2slice Did you check to make sure the barrel was still there but invisible? I noticed that when my Eivor first picked up the barrel, I couldn't see it (but the room was dark and I just used the control to "Pick Up"), then I went outside and she was carrying a giant invisible barrel. After running down the path for a while and turning this way and that, the barrel suddenly appeared in her arms.

    So maybe yours is invisible on the ground? A long shot, true, but better than starting over.

    Hey there folks.

    Thanks for your reports on this issue so far, for visibility I have merged a number of separate threads I could find on this issue into this main thread. I have reported this to the development team now. I can see that a number of workarounds are present in this thread so far so in the meantime please give those a try and many thanks to those of you who have taken the time to assist others with this whilst we work to resolve this. Thanks!

    Also can't find Alwin - he's not in the brewery. Tekla is hanging around though and I thought she was supposed to be missing.

    Like many others here, I have no way to continue "case of the missing ale". The icon shot across the map, about 4000m away from me. The ale barrel was dropped, and now have NO WAY to complete this quest. The really bad part, is that it's not just that quest. The other quest I'm the yule update, "build cattle farm building" shows the same marker as the ale quest shows. A way to reset quests ourselves would be awesome, instead of waiting for Ubi to get around to patching this.

    yule festival barrel retrieval quest has broken objective marker. after securing barrel from bandit camp it sends me southeast Sciropescire and the objective blimp appears to be underneath map. not going to bother going that far out of my way to see if maybe that's really where I should go. when spawning in after fast travels I am drunk? after doing arrow challenge at yule festival I remain holding multiple arrows in my hand.

    Hey dude,
    It appears its just a marker bug.
    If u go to southeast end of the 'island' you can find Ake there in a boat of his own.
    The brew respawns in the camp automatically

    The quest markers for the ale and building the cattle farm keep moving so I can't complete them.
    Fast Travel with a Yuletide quest active doesn't work. I just reappear where I was but either can't move or am floating in the air.

    Where is Alwin supposed to be? He isn't in the brewery and I don't have a question marker for him.

    My ale disappear and there's nothing I can do about it. Not even loading the game because when I put it on the ground it goes under the map to another location. And the quest even tho I finished them are still incomplete. So... Whatever...

    I've been having the same issues on PS4 and it looks like everyone is now dead at the brewery. The return icon is over 3k meters away from the bandit camp. 🤔 I did find a post online that stated not to call a raid prior to getting the barrel.

    I've had an issue on the ps4. I can't even start the mission. The first npc you need to talk to seems to be missing so i can't even begin.

    How can I correct this?
