    I have current 76 hours into the game and it is stuck in a soft lock, I chased the girl to her location, there was a small RP where I made a charisma choice and then the girl was not able to be spoken too and I cannot progress, I have tried zoning to both Norway and Vinland to reset the map, restarting isnt really an option..


  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    Hello all,

    Following the release of TU 1.2.2, the development team have marked this issue as resolved.

    If you are still unable to interact with the girl NPC to progress with "Plucking the Quill," please can you send us a video which shows the following:

    • You have the latest Title Update installed on your platform. You can check this in the right-hand corner of the main game menu.
    • Your current quest log, which shows your current quest objective in "Plucking the Quill."
    • You are still unable to interact with the girl NPC to progress in the quest.


    We can then forward these reports for further investigation by the development team.

    Thanks! 😊

    @thefrozencreed Hi Frozen, I have been stuck in this exact spot, having made those same choices and roughly the same amount of hours played (78). Did you manage to make it work in the end? I've tried everything, pre-load other saves but it goes back way too far and it's just wasting time to re-play through more than 2 hours of 'quick' gameplay. I've actually got this exact scenario recorded on my stream, if it will help ubisoft with anything, just ask for details and I'll provide the link to the issue.

    Hopefully we find a solution soon! I won't be able to play or stream this game anymore if there is no solution and I might leave it for good.

    @zmashed I went in and did every other available zone 100% and am now sitting on 96 hours played with the same bug, the NPC is completely un-interactable and Ubisoft hasnt even registered this as a known bug... so i guess my playthrough of Valhalla ends...

    @thefrozencreed I've just come across this issue as well, same scenario. The charisma check and everything.

    This just happened to me, I picked the charisma option and now I am softlocked out of the region. I wish you could abandon the quest to restart it.

    Exact same issue here. Is there any way we can report this to Ubisoft. I'm have a lot of trouble navigating their support areas.

    @zmashed It just happened to me. Same situation too. Thing is, I loaded back to an autosave at the beginning of the mission where the kids were setting fire to that hay. I then quicksaved before repeating the dialogues and it works now.

    @just_jdep i reported this issue to Ubisoft and they told me to clear my PS4 game data utility files then test my disc another PS4 to make sure that isn't the problem and then back up my save files and delete and reinstall everything. I have no idea if this works though because I don't have a PS4, the game files are too big to move to any extra drives I have, and my internet is so [censored] poor in this backwoods [censored] town it took my 5 days to download and install the first patch and I won't be doing that again unless its a brand new patch. Ubisoft knows about the issue but fixing it would mean they acknowledge that they screwed up and delivered a broken game and they won't do that, its easier to tell hundreds of people their consoles are the issue.

    If we could just restart the quest the problem would be over

    9 days no official response.... glad I put almost 100 hours into the game

    I stand on 78 hours with the game and have the same problem with charisma checks and everything and none all my autosaves start at the same place with "speak to the girl" objective. So I cannot go back at all, would be nice to have some official response.

    Can we get acknowledgement from Ubisoft for this issue. I have over 80 hours in game as have many others on Xbox one and this occurs at the point in this quest where you interact with the children and are interrupted by adults. When choosing the charisma choice they run off at which point it says Speak to the Girl.

    The ability to interact with the girl is not available and we are unable to progress. I personally have reinstalled the whole game the boy and girl go back to their starting points and we can not progress.

    Do your play teaters actually play the game from start to finish. Do any actual gaming or do you just parse your routines and code and if it doesn't error its good and stamped for release.

    Exact same issue here on PC. Same choices, same everything. Tried rebooting the game and reloading saves, but of course somehow I've ended up with about five saves AFTER the charisma check and none for a bout 2-3 hours before it. This really needs to be fixed!!!

    @malisef I have the same problem. There is another thread about it here (https://discussions.ubisoft.com/topic/81903/cannot-progress-plucking-the-quill/13) but seemingly still no solution unless you have saves at the start of the mission.

    NVM I see you already commented on that thread.

    Having the exact same issue. Chose charisma and the girl is just standing there. Last “save” was 6 hours and I really don’t want to have to replay 6 hours of the game because of a bug

    In the mission Plucking the Quill, chapter 3 Objective: Find and speak to the girl. After the the scene were some soldiers will show up. you can either threaten them, pay them 230 Silver to leave or use Charisma to talk them down. i used charisma but now the girl NPC is either gone or unable to talk to.

    Patch 1.04 was no help sadly.
