Heya, making my first thread in here, so sorry if duplicate or wrong format.
After Wrath of Druids, quite often Eivor gets an effect of falling leaves under their feet, with shuffling sound. This is similar to when Eivor jumps to a leaves heap, just happening in open world for some reason - everywhere I run to, I get leaves visual and sound. I get this sometimes after fast travel or a jump from a viewpoint - and the only way I can get rid of this is quitting to main menu and reloading the game.
Anyone else seen this?
Thanks for reading.
@valfoin Is a known issue caused by using the sprint attack using the sickles on main hand. Theres no fix for this yet but is under investigation. So for now either dont equip a sickle on the main hand or avoid using sprint attack but sometimes you can do it accidentally in the middle of the battle.
Is a very annoying bug ,and a shame as sickles are fun to use and with the right combination of armour and runes is a fast and certain kill. We just have to wait until is fixed.

@russt72 I have a much quicker and easy solution to this that I was trying to figure out for the past 15 minutes lol. If you unlocked the slide skill, one of the new ones from the river raid update, then just run and slide normally. It will completely remove the vibration and dust effect and viola! Better than nothing until it's fixed.

It is really sad when you have a visual bug with the new Sickle weapons that has been reported for weeks and no fix until Ubisoft decides to put out a patch. A patch who knows when that will be. That is far from game support. Their game has been riddled with bugs since its launch. New content just adds to it. Really pathetic. Doubt anything is even tested before it is released.

Thank you for continuing to share your reports regarding the sickle sliding attack. I would like to assure you all that the development team intend to resolve this issue in a future update. We don't yet have any new information to share on when a fix will be released for this. As soon as a date has been confirmed, we will let you all know within the forums.
@ChuckKatse - Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. I'm sorry to hear that you feel this way. We are unable to speculate when Title Updates or hot fixes are to be released when this information is unavailable. I understand that this may not be the update you were hoping for, and apologise for any disappointment caused. As shared in the Dev Blog, the development team has decided to release Title Updates for the game every five weeks, when able to, to allow time for more thorough testing and refinement. You can read more about this, as well as the differences between Title Updates and hot fixes, here.

There is a bug with the sickle where is you do a sprint attack with it you get permanent sliding effect sound, debris, and vibration glitches to your character. The only way to remove it is to use the assassin's slide skill and remove the sickle. This makes the new sickle unbearable to use.

While playing Wrath of the Druids on the PS4, I discovered a bug that, while not gamebreaking, is certainly extremely annoying as it requires me to nigh constantly reload a previous saved game in order to proceed playing without disturbance.
For the life of me, I couldn't find anybody else experiencing this problem, but that's mostly because I have no idea how to word it exactly. I've tried several different ways of formulating it, all of which have yielded zero results.
So, about the bug: very often while I'm walking, the game will randomly decide that Eivor is treading through muddy or shallow watery terrain, even while on solid pavement / rock / what have you. This can happen whenever, as it is related to the most basic action in the game, i.e. walking.
The bug registers as:
- Sound effects of walking through shallow water or mud;
- A trail left behind Eivor when there's nothing to actually trigger the trail;
- Slower walking speed;
- Vibration feedback to my DualShock 4 controller.
Note the slushing sound effects in the beginning of the video (00:01 and 00:05), as well as the trail left by Eivor
Here's a video of the bug:
As you may be able to tell, this makes gameplay significantly harder - everything from sneaking and combat to simple walking has become tedious, and the only solution I've found thus far is for me to reload a saved game.

Playing on Playstation 4.
The constant vibration of my controller, along with the continuous dust cloud and wind falling sound, occurs when performing attacks with both Sickles equipped. I just recently found the 2nd sickle and had been using just one for sometime with no issues so I do believe this is linked to having both Sickles equipped.
