    When following the additional Baker's quest from the home village the following storyline is followed:
    Tarben (Guthban) is escorted to Whilf
    Tarben supports you as you get the items in question from the camp
    **Once the battle is over Tarben and the quest icon is off the world map and nowhere to be seen
    Cannot return to Wilf to finish the quest

    **Reload the game after shut down or standby mode (xbox) completion dialog of the battle restarts between Tarben and Eivor with only Eivor being heard the rest is stated in subtitles.
    I've been playing for a couple days without being able to end the loop. The only way to go back would be maybe to return to a state 4 days prior.

    **Bug issue

  • 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.

    Having reverting to a load prior to purchasing the bakery it reinstated the bakery automatically, and set the game to the point of the mission where the bug happens. Also Opal that appears on the map that I had collected appear on the map but not in the game.

    I'm unable to progress, Tarben is stuck and won't proceed to bandit hideout. I believe after asking a friend who completed it that his horse is not spawning in my world, as a result he's just looping the beginning voice line upon going to start of quest behind his house.

    I've tried to restart game, verify files, fast travel, and going to the location he's supposed to travel to with no fix.
    In fact upon going to the hideout without Tarben results in the door closed and I end up trapped in the house.

    Anyways just posting this to see if fixes I haven't tried can be shared & to let devs know his horse sometimes might glitch out, anyways good day.
    (before someone suggests going back to older save, I'm not keen on losing 12 hours of gameplay so I'll forego that & wait for fix or update)

    The same thing has happened to me.
    I used his horse to travel to do another quest, and when I returned to him, he wouldn't do anything other than pace around behind the bakery.
    The horse is where I left it, but I can't interact with that either, and I can't proceed with the quest.

    Hiya,

    Just a quick bug I've run into on this quest (on PC version) and have been unable to fix despite reloads and all sorts of other trickery (ie, getting the NPC killed).

    I'm at the section of the quest where I need to 'Follow Tarben to Bandit Hideout' where he's pacing outside the back of the Bakery. Unfortunately if I speak to him he gives his bit of dialogue and then... continues pacing back and forth. He'll give his little bit of dialogue he's meant to give while leading you but otherwise he'll just stand there walking in his pacing animation.

    As I said I've tried reloading, getting him killed by wolves and reviving him, knocking him over, running to where the next bit of the quest should trigger etc. but to no avail.

    The only thing I could think that 'may' have caused the bug is I was in the process of the 'Have you seen this man?' quest. I had Petra in tow about to go out and look for where Wallace was last seen when I went into the bakery to speak with Tarben. He then said to speak to him when I was ready so I continued on, found Wallace and finished that quest and that's where I keep running into the issue. Unfortunately I don't have a save from before I started that quest so my only hope is for an eventual fix.

    while not related to the above issues, i sucessfully completed the bandit hideout and i'm now trying to head back to my settlement with Tarben, but he refuses to move and stuck outside the bandit house.
    Reloading the game has respawned tarbens horse and appears to have fixed things.

    Hopefully Ubi will see this thread and add it to the ever growing list of mission issues.

    @druskov I have the same issue on the PlayStation. When I look at the world map, the marker is off the map to the north. Every time I continue the game my character is talking, but the other character's voice is not heard.

    I’m stuck on the “Man of Mystery” quest. I was able to talk to the bandit leader, gave him his money, but once I walked outside with Tarben he just stands in the same place and won’t move. He’s suppose to get on his horse so I can escort him back to the settlement but he does nothing.... anyone else have this issue???

    unable to proceed on Man of mystery mission as Tarben is stuck roaming behind his bakery and doesn't lead Eivor to bandit location

    Tarben is waiting in the settlement pacing around and when I speak to him to start the quest he goes through some dialogue but then simply ends up going back to pacing around and does not set off to lead me to the bandit camp and I can no longer speak to him. The quest is also updated and says "Follow Tarben to the bandit camp".

    I've saved and reloaded a game but he just stays in one spot packing around as though waiting for me to speak to him before setting off. Wondering now if the Yule Festival DLC is causing this issue because I also keep getting the drunk status whenever I load a save game. Maybe this should be called the Bug Festival?

    @weav2593 same here. 3 mountable horses and one not mountable. He won't follow me or mount a horse either.

    I'm on "Man of Mystery" I have to escort Tarben back to Ravensthorpe. Instead of using roads the whole way I went down a hill. My horse walked right down no problem, Tarben took a slightly different path, got stuck on a rock and refuses to move. I've tried to knock him off with a horse, 2 horses, shoot him, bump him, as many ideas as I could possibly think of to get him to budge, nothing works. He keeps pathing to the same spot at the corner of the rock and stops.
    This is the second NPC I've had bug out on me. The first one I was able to load my last saved game and the NPC started following me again.
