The target icon doesn’t even come up for me.. I have searched the trade depot.. killed everything, looted and searched everything. Nothing. Cannot get it to do anything. Cannot even make it to the part I learn that I need to kill the Needle? Give up? Shame really wanted to max out a couple gear packages to legendary.

If you encounter any further trouble when progressing in "Pricking the Needle," please don't hesitate to open up a new thread so we can take a closer look. When opening a new thread, please include as much information about the issue you're encountering as possible. Any images or videos that demonstrate the issue in-game are also helpful for further investigation.

sorry i'm late to this thread, but I'd like to help out if i can.
I can confirm that I DID fast travel out of the sewers, instead of taking the intended path up the ladder
my support ticket number is 13527680
and here's a video of the issue: https://www.reddit.com/r/ACValhalla/comments/k7a2c7/of_all_the_bugs_ive_tolerated_ive_finally_come/
I am also in the unfortunate position of being 92 hours in, so no chance of reloading a save.
hopefully this helps and a solution can be found!

@pigr0t I have the same issue. When I speak to her she just sits down again and doesn't go to archive. Tried going back to other saves and then it bugged other parts of the mission (killing targets) so had to stick with the save where I had actually killed both targets but couldn't then reach archive. I have submitted a ticket but who knows if it'll be picked up.
Frustrating as it's preventing me completing arc and I'm nearly done on all others!!

This is worked for me : back to the previous quest, before you triggered this bug, while going to the needle's area, don't directly encounter him face to face, because once you did this, after the CG, his guards will spot you immediately, I think this causes the bug. So just approach his area from the rooftop, right above him, then the CG will automatically play, after he stabbed the merchant, nobody spots you, bug will not occur so you can assassinate him from the rooftop.
I paly it on PS4 slim, hope this can help you guys

It is very difficult to fix that problem. They have to patch that bug, but you have to go back to a saved game and start from there again. I hope they come up with another solution, but I don't think so. It's a shame to lose so many hours of gameplay due to a bug, but that's what we have for now. Good luck to everyone.

@ubikobold can you look into my ticket. I cannot progress any further I'm the game and Yorvic is the only arc I'm left to do. I have killed both targets but then I can't progress further after speaking to her in great Hall and she won't go to archives. Just sits down again.

I completed Burning the Firebrand and Pricking the Needle, then went to speak to Ljufvina. Each time I speak to her it goes through the dialogue about the Needle being dead and that we need to search the council's offices in the Archives, then Ljufvina sits back down and I am prompted to speak with her again. The only quest showing as incomplete is Burning the Firebrand.

Here we are in February of 2021 and this glitch still isn't fixed, I mean c'mon. I've already submitted my ticket, replied back to your auto generated message and let you know that no the needle is still standing in the same damn spot as he has been for hundreds of people for the past 3 months. How you gonna have him be such an integral part of "the order" and yet disregard this glitch as if it's not important. Do you devs even give a [censored] about your game? I mean an occasional side quest or whatever fine but a quest as significant as this one and it hasn't been addressed or resolved in three months time? [censored] are you guys doing?

5 months down the line and still no update to resolve this. Spent £150 and can’t finish the game. First AC that has been a bitter disappointment. FIX IT!!!

PS4, Jorik Questline, Quest Pricking the needle, sub quest return to ljufvina.
No quest marker given. Once returned to ljufvina inside of royal hall, dialogue happens, she says lets go to the archive. She then sits back down and repeats upon talking to her again. I did not teleport out of sewers before killing the needle, but did kill firebrand and needle prior to talking to her. Also killed needle with arrow then killed his guards then confirmed the kill. Cannot progress story anymore with no recent previous save point( closest save point is over 60hrs of gameplay ago) Please assist!!!!!!

@ubikobold This issue has been reported for months. I love these AC games but I won't buy one in the future if this is the support we get. I've already entered a ticket, requested that this be reported to devs as a bug, shared the same types of videos our friends in this thread have shared.
We need either
A) a bugfix to allow us to continue on this quest or
B) a way to reset quests and restart them from the beginning.
This is unacceptable.

Still not fixed & has been reported for months!
How about instead of adding new content, you fix the issues first!
(I've worked in QA... it's a thankless task... cheers)
