    @danjkay Destroy Jars with arrow and with a 2 handed axe or sword through the wall and try to throw a corspe on movable boxes in order to put them back in their tracks. After that try to move boxes to triger the event og the mystery. I succeed with this technique.

    @dragondorusse facing the same issue. 1st shelf stuck in the bags on the ground, 2nd shelf spawned on top of the jars and keeps its airtime when destroying the jars. Will try the throw a corpse technique and see if that helps.

    I'm playing on Xbox SX, and actually I have never seen the guy to rescue. I still have the icon of side quest, but the house is on the mess I let it when I tried to understand what to do.

    @ubi-swaggins Thanks for the reply and forwarding this issue. I have yet to make another Thread to report another major bug regarding Armors being available twice from chest.. Strange.

    Anyways, thanks @Ubi-Swaggins

    @vanarlen Ok so throwing a corpse actually unstucked the 1st shelf. The 2nd one, however, makes the game to hang in non-responding mode, as soon as I hit a jar with the thrown corpse.

    As I said earlier, go west along the river. He is likely sitting in the street to talk to.

    So i had the issue where the jars was under the crate. I threw a body to fix that crate. But now i have an even bigger bug, the small crate has switched lanes completely and throwing a body wont move it over the wood tile to the correct lane. So he will not move at all even if big crate problem is solved. The small crate im talking about is the one closest to him that goes along the wall to the end. It switched over to the other side somehow😕 Anyone with a solution to this? I am waaaaaaaaay to far ahead of the game to reload a previous save

    @ubi-baron I'm glad that Ubi at least acknowledges the glitch, and I am desperately hoping it gets fixed. Something this simple can be very demotivating to finishing the rest of the game. I, like many others, adventured prematurely and "solved" the puzzle before the dude spawned. Later came back, he was there, and the boxes were all kinds of messed up.

    I tried everything on this post, including throwing dead bodies repeatedly, reloading, changing genders, exited Animus, etc... Seriously, just scrap this mystery or allow more simple box maneuvers so we aren't stuck at 99% completion.

    Some of the rock-shelves are sitting on top of jars. When I break the jars beneath them, the shelves fall but are unable to be moved (possibly due to them falling slightly off-track). I am therefore unable to free the NPC. That is IF the NPC spawns at all. I have visited the building related to this event 5 times and only once has the NPC been there.

    The first time I visited the building, the world event icon was there but the NPC was missing. The rock-shelves WERE NOT on top of the jars. They were in their correct spots. Unsure of what to do for the event I moved the jars, broke some, moved all the shelves, gave up and left. When I returned later I discovered the NPC was there but the shelf (this time only the shelf in the corner, to the left of the main doors) was on some jars. I assume the problem stems from my tampering with the area without the NPC having spawned in.

    Additional info: Upon returning to the event, the shelves are in the same location as they were when I left the FIRST time I visited. Which is to say they had been pulled out a bit and moved around. However the jars had respawned to their original locations (as far as I can tell). I believe the jars respawned in their original locations, and since the shelf (the main shelf with the problem in the corner left of the door) was already there, the jar simply pushed the shelf up. This does not explain the NPC not spawning however.

    I have restarted my console, and have tried fast traveling away then back multiple times. Each time, shelves are on jars and the NPC has yet to return. The World Event icon remains on the map.

    Playing on the Xbox Series X and had the exact same problem. I tried smashing all the pots and there were still two of the units blocked. So I came here... found out about throwing a body. It worked on the first one. I slid it all the way to the left and the guy who wasn't speaking at all said thanks for freeing him.... even though he was still kind of stuck because I hadn't even tried to move the other unit. He just teleported outside and gave me the mission complete when I talked to him. Good luck all

    @camdood10 Hey... In another thread someone found a workaround.
    He placed some bodies around the crates, which pushed them to their original positions after he fast-traveled.

    You can try that in the meantime.
    I didn't do it yet 'cause the NPC despawned for me. xD
    So I cannot confirm if it works, though.

    This is still bugged. playing on PC. i was able to reset all the shelves and have the jars respawn and now the guy just stands there unresponsive. the path for him is completely clear and I am able to move all the shelves around. Nothing is stuck, just the NPC.

    hope this helps everyone as much as it helped me
    so you main aim as you can see if to make a bridge while the small box in the 2nd room is floating make sure you got enough to drag all the way across

    best of luck !
