I haven't purchased map pack from E-Store but I also encounter this bug also. I just use raven to find location of opals. I collected an Opal but then some glitch happened so I had to load an old save. The mark could still be found at the same location with raven but when I get to the location, there is no opal because I've already collected it. Not game breaking bug but it is very annoying.
This also affects in Core Challenge. The number of opals collected on overlay isn't the same to what I collected (I collected 24 but it only shows 22 missing ones before I collected before I loaded an old save).

I have merged together several threads about opal markers not disappearing from the map after being collected into a single megathread. I apologise if any ongoing discussions have been disrupted by this merge.
The issue where previously collected opal markers wouldn't disappear from the map has been marked as resolved in TU 1.1.0 by the development team. If you have collected an opal and the marker still shows as available on your map, please don't hesitate to update this thread so we can take a closer look. Please include images/video that shows the opal has been collected, but the marker is still on your map.
I would also like to take the time to share our support article about collecting opals, and how these can only be collected once per game.
Any Opal that you collect will be registered to your account, meaning that once you have picked up a piece of Opal it will not appear again if you start a different save file with the same account. Similarly, any gear purchased with Opal will also be bound to the account it was purchased with.

Opals, a limited and non-respawning in-game currency / resource, that are collected before you die, will permanently disappear from ALL previous saves after loading due to death in the game. The raven still finds the symbol of the opal and it also still appears on the compass, but the opals are lost forever, see attached screenshots.
To reproduce, simply:
- go to an opal and save manually (*)
- collect the opal
- load manual save (*)
Case Number: 13197448
I restarted the game to find out if that resets the Opals but no, Opals are gone for good for ALL savegames in perpetuity !!! Every single Opal still has its symbol and compass entry visible.
If I decide to start a new game after collecting ALL Opals, the gameworld in this new game will be 100% empty of Opals to collect and 100% full of Opal symbols and compass entries which lead to nothing. Its a major pain also because it kills replayability and clutters the gameworld with tons of empty collectible locations.

I also have this bug. After loading a savegame or starting a new game, ALL Opals which were collected in ANY savegame are forever gone. The Raven still finds ALL their symbols and the same symbols, regardless of whether they were already collected or not, are still shown on the compass.
If I decide to start a new game after collecting ALL Opals, the gameworld in this new game will be 100% empty of Opals to collect and 100% full of Opal symbols and compass entries which lead to nothing. As Ubisoft already gave advice to people that got their 2nd main quest bugged, to start over, Im sure many players will encounter this Bug and Im very suprised I dont find mention of it in the official Bug list.
Its a major pain also because it kills replayability and clutters the gameworld with tons of empty collectible locations.

You need to delete your real account and create another one on the Ubisoft site.
Quit the game, when you'll open it, the game will ask you to register to a Ubisoft account in order to play, that's when you register to the newly created account.
Then pick up all the opals you need since the account has no registered opals on it.
Save your game, quit the game. delete the fake account and reactivate the real one.
When you open the game again, register to your real account.
I did it twice for two opals missing and worked perfectly, let me know if you have any questions and good luck !
Are you on PC ?
Cause on PC games tied to Uplay Account.
Deleting account will delete whole game library.
And even if you create another Ubi account. It will not have access to any games from other account
And only support can move games to other account on your request.
I rather wait for the Patch fix from Ubisoft than deleting my account !

Just collected an Opal in Grantebrigdescire then had to reload my game because I messed up a mission. And when I reloaded my save I realized the map marker for the opal was still there. I went to look but the Opal was missing. Same happened with the Opal on top of a mountain in Fornburg. I collected it then fell to my death, when it loaded my last save, the marker was there but the Opal was gone. Hope you can help.

Hi, I'm on PS4., I guess this solution doesn't work on PC...
Don't worry, you won't delete your account, only temporarily to get the opal, then you reactivate it 15 minutes later once done! Otherwise I think Ubisoft will probably patch this soon. Good luck to all and enjoy!
When you collect opal, and load previous save for what ever reason, or even start new game.
Some collected opal locations witch you collected be for auto save still been displayed on map, and can be located by Raven.
But there is nothing, as the opals can be collected only once.

I'm having the same problem. Eivor climbs up a mountain and discovers that the opal is picked already. It is somewhat annoying.

I am having the same problem. it's a bit frustrating to have so many opal symbols on the map.

Im having the same issue. It looks like its being caused because I started a new game since it’s only happening to the opals I had collected before restarting. I had bought the map before collecting any on my previous save.

Thank you for your reports. I have merged you all into 1 thread to keep things tidy, and Ubi-Spud has reported this to our devs.
We'll investigate why the icons remain on the map and if the opals are lost, then implement a fix.
Enjoy your day!
