    @ubi-woofer It seems that the update did fix a lot of my settlement NPCs, all of them except one. I can't talk to the tattooist/barber, Tove, but all my NPCs who were broken before are now able to be talked to, and hopefully it stays that way. I had a theory considering this bug, could it something to do with the fact that I didn't have my tattoo shop built till after

    It's great to see that this fix has helped so many of you! If anyone is still unable to interact with Tove, please ensure that you try these steps first:

    • Try to talk to Tove
    • Create a manual save
    • Shutdown the game and relaunch it (Desynchronizing, reloading a save, or returning to title screen is not enough)
    • Load the manual save created above and check that a cloud save has been created
    • Close the game again, then load up the cloud version of the manual save that was made previously.

    You should now be able to talk to Tove again! If you're still unable to interact with Tove after following these steps, please don't hesitate to update the thread so we can take a closer look. Thanks all! 😊

    @munki909 I'm having this exact issue as well. She just sits in her chair and I cannot engage her. Glad I'm not the only one

    Hi i have a bug in my AC: Valhalla. I finished quest with trove called: Carrying the torch. But that quest isnt between finished ones and i couldnt talk with her, she just sit in her place (lvl 2) and wont speak with me. Could you somehow help me? My guess is, that after that quest i run to upgrade tatoo shop and then she arrived into her new home without any answer, sometimes when i upgrade someones building, he has some dialog options,shes not. Could this be the problem? Thanks for the answer.

    This is one of my favorite ACs, and I've only run into terrain bugs and such, but not many. However, one is quite frustrating.

    After Svend died and Tove took over, I am unable to talk with her to access my tattoo/barber shop. She's in there but there's no interact button, no way to speak with her. Everything else seems to be working.

    I'm on an XBox One X.

    Thank you,

    +1 to not being able to talk to Tove after talking to her at the grave

    Of note, "Carrying the Torch" doesn't appear in my quest list completed, or active either. Seems it hasn't been marked as complete and so she isn't available to talk to?

    Cannt talk to Tove and cant update my town to lvl 6, none of the plaquards that they say i need to update in the letter in your room are visible at all, and i have MORE than enough resources to do so, This is ridiculous with all the time and effort put in to getting the ressources and the tattoos, to basically be almost done with the game and not be able to use them.........

    Same as the rest, cannot interact with Tove and the quest carrying the torch no longer appears in the list of completed quests.
    Also several cut scenes the characters mouths no longer move while speaking.

    On Ps5

    @deathwolf1313 I had already built my Tattoo shop and done the quest, then lost the ability to speak with the artist, so it seems it's either way before or after.

    I can’t interact with Tove in her hut after Svend dies, so I can’t change my hair or tattoos. This is after patch 1.1.1 which was supposed to fix settlement NPC interactions. I’ve done the mini quest which is passed ownership of the shop from Svend to Tove.

    Svend has died in my game and I spoke to Tove at his grave and completed the quest “Carrying the Torch.” She now sits where Svend sat in the tattoo building, however there’s no speech bubble above her head and I can’t talk to her so I’m stuck with my same tattoos and hairstyle.

    I’m on Xbox One.

    I want to know if anyone else has been able to work around this in their games, or if this is just a bug Ubisoft will have to patch out.

    I can't interact with Tove for hair/tattoo changing. When I approach the shop she greets me as if her voice is outside but she is inside the shop and I'm unable to interact with her.

    Using ps4 plus.
