Locked SOLVED [RESOLVED] The shield in "Defensive Measures" doesn't harm enemies or the Builder has disappeared | POST HERE4 Likes/348 Replies/5269 Views
The update has not solved my issue. It is same as before. I drink potion, spawn next to builder. Shield is still red and builder is just painting. No enemies coming and I loose health rapidly if I step outside the shield. I’ve had this issue since November...
A video of my issue is already posted in this thread.

This patch solved my issue, but it wasn't an immediate fix. Here's what I had to do to get it to work:
The shield was green and there was no builder next to the pillar. No enemies were coming toward me, but I was able to walk outside of the shield without any health damage. When I got the enemies attention, they would slowly come toward the shield and would be killed if they tried to enter the shield.
When I returned inside the shield, the builder was standing in front of the pillar with the Quest symbol over him, but I could not speak with him. I tried luring more enemies in, hoping it would unleash the "Survive the attack" wave. It never came. Eventually, I left the shield and killed all the enemies in the vicinity from all directions, not just the left side facing away from the shield. There are others on the right and even more walking on the hill in between the left and right side of the shield. After I killed everyone and returned, the quest was able to be completed.
FWIW, my issue before the patch was that the builder was painting the pillar and unresponsive. I could never get all the enemies to come get me unless they were close enough to get their attention with an arrow. Eventually, I ran out of enemies and any attempt to leave the shield would deplete my health. I found myself stuck in the shield with no way to progress the story.
Hope this helps.

Hello, and thank you all for your patience during these times. The Game team has been investigating issues of not being able to proceed in the Quest Defensive Measures. After the most recent update, 1.2.1, is anyone still unable to complete this Quest? If you are still unable to proceed, I have a few questions for you.
- Are you stuck inside the shield? Or are you unable to enter the shield?
- Did the enemies spawn? Were you able to attack them?
- If able to attack the enemies, did they die?
- Have you tried fast travelling and returning?
- Have you tried reverting to an earlier save?
- What platform are you playing on? Can you send your most recent manual save to the cloud?

- I am not stuck in or out of shield, I can move freely between but loose health quickly once outside the shield
- a few enemies spawned, maybe 8-9, but after that I can see them wandering around but they do not attack.
- have tried to fast travel and return many times. Within Asgard, I just die. When I wake up, I am able to continue playing in the normal world map
- once I had the problem I began to play the rest of the storyline and finished everything else while waiting for a fix, so I cannot go back to an earlier save
- i will try to figure out how to send my last save file soon
Hello there @Daner725! Thanks for providing that additional information for us. I've added this to your report.
You saves should automatically be added to the cloud as long as you are connected to online. You can check this by looking for the cloud icon on your save file!

- I am stuck inside the shield. Leaving the shield causes my health to go down.
- Enemies spawn outside of the shield and have to be provoked to get close enough to attack with something other than arrows
- The enemies do die but they seem to keep regenerating in roving groups of 4 and I eventually run out of arrows and enough health to coax them near the shield.
- If I fast travel in Asgard I die.
- This issue started occurring months ago and I no longer have a save file from that time to revert to.
- PS4. My most recent save in Asgard has been pushed to the cloud.

I made a post a few weeks (months?) ago about an issue like this where I can't progress since no invaders invade during "kill all invaders". I can't find anything to fix it and I have over 156 hours in this game so "deleting and restart" would really really suck. Any ideas? I'm at my wit's end here.

In Defensive Measures, once I reach the "Survive attack" stage, I get stuck. I've survived the attack for 20 min stretchs at a time, and it never progresses. I've loaded previous saves, and at every point I reach this stage, this happens. I've swithed interface languanges and restarted the game with an earlier save and this keeps happening regardless. One thing I've notices is that 3 or 4 trolls remain outside the bubble every time (they spawn after the "kill all enemies" part) but never approach and enter the bubble. I've tried going out to lure them, but die before reaching all of them, since I'm outside the bubble. How can I fix this? As it is, I can't play advance in the story Asgard.
