    completely destroys the entire purpose of a customisable, collectible crew of raiders

    There has never been such a feature in the game.
    You could hire a good looking JV, and two days later the owner had decided to put a bucket on her head or dress her in one of the ugly Helix outfits.
    Also river raid JVs have been broken since it launched, community JVs only ever are lvl 1.
    Lvl 2 and 3 are auto generated with ugly helmets or Corona masks.

    I wish they ditched the whole community JV concept and make the whole crew fully customizable.

    @kormac67 is it possible within river raids to upskill other players Jomsviking's? if you take another players level one of 5/10 raids you can get them up to a level 2 or 3?

    What do you mean 'is trying to reproduce this issue'? It happens each and every day, in fact, each and every loading of a game. Today it even happened when I (re)assigned my Jomsviking the 100.000th time and took her out on a raid myself. I assigned a spear, guess what, she was carrying an axe.

    @isuwhat Nope. Only your own JV scales up. Even if the owner has his JV at 3 it still stays at 1 for you.

    @draeoth I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing this.

    The development team are currently investigating an issue where the Jomsviking appearance resets each time a player loads their save file. However it doesn't appear to happen after a raid or fast travelling. Can you confirm if this is the same for you or does it reset after raids and fast travelling?

    Could you also provide a video of this issue.

    Same issue here since 1.2.0, my level 3 Jomsviking resets to default gear at game load.

    @ubi-keo i was mistaken. i tried fast traveling to and from different viewpoints and ports. i tried quitting to title screen and reloading save and both didnt change the gear. however closing and reopening the game changed all gear to default except the primary weapon.

    Me and a lot of others are experiencing an issue where our customized jomsvikings reset out of nowhere and automatically equip default clothing and weapons. Please fix.

    I noticed that every time I quit the game and relaunch it, when going back into the Jomsviking customization menu, my Jomsviking's appearance partially resets. Her chestpiece stays hidden like I did and one of the weapons (left one) stays the same. But her pants, and gloves reset to the default, and the weapon in the other hand (right one) keeps resetting to the default shield.

    So every time I launch the game I have to re-customize my Jomsviking 😞

    @Konata10101 @kennyannydenny I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing this. I have merged your post with this megathread as this is a known issue that is being investigated by the development team. Please keep checking here, the known issues list and the news and announcements page for updates.

    @Spades1961 The development team have been unable to reproduce this issue when testing, but are still investigating.

    @ubi-keo What I noticed, however, is that many of the other players' Jomsvikings are wearing customized clothing in my world, despite this issue. That means the data of Jomsvikings is properly sent and saved on the Valhalla server right?

    I am playing on Xbox One. In my case, it is also closing and reopening the game that causes all my Jomsviking's gear to reset to default; fast-travelling does not trigger it, and the issue happens no matter I start the game offline or online.

    I pretty clearly remember that this issue had yet happened with the introduction of River Raid (since it concerns Jomsvikings the most). My guess is probably patch 1.2.0 has coding which has messed up with data retrieval of the most-recently-saved Jomsviking setting when loading up the game for the first time on a console. Or it may be like, even though we again customise our Jomsviking gear, it is only saved like on RAM but not on the hard disk? That is why it is not saved permanently and is lost upon each time the console is shut down? (just a guess; I'm no programmer)

    @ubi-keo I think it is somehow linked to the transmog system. Ask the devs to change the appearance of gear pieces, then give those pieces to the Jomsviking. That is where I have noticed the easiest way to reproduce the bug.

    Items which are not edited will remain on the Jomsviking.

    @orcbeard92 i haven't used the transmog system at all and my gear resets every-time. But its certainly only been happening since transmog was brought in

    @isuwhat Yeah, you're right. I'm just trying to think of the best way they can replicate the bug, if they are claiming they can't replicate it themselves. (Which is honestly kind of baffling, who is testing these bugs?)

    Exactely !
    Same case for me 🙂
    Never used transmog, but all Jomsviking stuff (Armor and Weapons) resets to system default at each new start 🙂

    @isuwhat Same here; I haven't touched transmog at all (I don't need it, in Odyssey or in Valhalla). The gear-reset bug still happens.

    DITTO - Jomsviking gear constantly resets to the default rubbish.

    ALSO My jomsviking doesn’t have all of my gear,

    At first I thought he didn’t have certain items like Mjolnir, Thor’s armour, Ragnar’s Drengilir dagger, or Excalibur because they are unique one-off items, but he also doesn’t have the soldier’s flail and a number of other things from the later game.

    This is really frustrating. Another thing I hate about River Raids is how raiders are always blowing themselves up - they run around with torches (before the enemy combatants have been killed) and walk straight into those big red oil flagons. Drives me insane.

    Only managed to get this far by editing someone else’s save because I was one of the lucky ones to get the game-breaking Brewing Storm bug.

    Valhalla has way more bugs than Cyberpunk 2077 ever did.
    And at least CDPR fixes their bugs.
    Ubisoft releases a [censored] broken festival and more goddam cats.

    In my case the longship also resets to default (as well as my Jomsviking)

    On river raids lately my longship has the hideous Raven Clan sail etc.

    None of the customisations for the entire River Raids component are being saved.

    Hello all. This is my experience with the issue.

    I started ACV and selected "Continue" just to find my Jomsvikings outfit back to default.
    I reapplied my chosen style to the Jomsviking and saved the game manually in main menu. (Save #11)

    Test 1:
    Keeping the game active (same session), I selected "Quit to Title Screen" to check theese variants:
    Continue Game. Result: Jomsviking has my applied outfit.
    Load Game. Result: Jomsviking has my applied outfit. (Save #11)

    Test 2:
    I shut down the game (exit to dashboard and assured that i had closed the game) and then launched the game again.
    Continue Game. Result: Jomsviking resets.
    Load Game. Result: Jomsviking has my applied outfit. (Save #11)

    So even if my new game session got my Jomsviking reset, it seems that you can work this out by saving manually before ending your session, and choose "load game" when you start your next session. Then you keep your custom outfit on your Jomsviking.

    I have upload the video to Live to Ubisoft if it helps out.
    There you can see a fresh start with the Continue result and the Load Game result.
