    I’ve the same problem: Ciara went to the meeting while barid stayed at the stabels. Then after a while Ciara returned to the bar and started drinking and barid is still at the stables. You cant interact with any of them even when i pushed them away.

    • Who isn't moving? I was originally able to follow Ciara to the destination, but Barid stayed behind at the stable. I went back to Dublin and found him sitting at the stable on his horse. I logged out of game but when I logged back in no change. Eventually Ciara walked back to Dublin and returned to her stool where she was originally located.
    • Did Ciara leave for the coronation, or did Barid? Ciara
    • Where are the NPCs positioned now? Ciara is now at the bar in Dublin and Barid never left the stables in Dublin. The quest marker remains above Ciara and both characters 'light up' as quest items when using the sight ability.
    • Can you please send us a video that shows the current position of these NPCs, and that they will not proceed to the coronation? Sorry I don't know how to do this.

    I do not have a previous save to go back to from before this happened and have been worried about progressing further ingame and losing that progress, so I just haven't played.
    Any help resolving this so I can get back to enjoying the game is greatly appreciated.

    Hey guys, usually really love your work but in the past few years it’s been sub-par at best, so how about you stop giving us the whole “we are looking into” routine and fix the problem already. After all we did pay for the game ya know. This is a major problem with your new DLC that tons of us paid for and you don’t really seemed that concerned about, hmm fix it or refund me

    @ubi-borealis y’all say the same thing on every post, you know the problem is real, hundreds of people have reported it. Why do you need a video of the same bug over and over again. Just buying time and trying to shut everyone up right?

    I have this problem as well, and below will be the request that I sent in, plus a video of the gameplay after the fact. Unfortunately, I do not have a video from before the quest.


    In the new DLC, Wrath of Druids, I have run into an issue in the Flann over Ireland - Chapter 1 quest. I went to pick up Ciara at the pub, met with Barid, and started to ride towards the ceremony. However, when I looked back, Barid was not following us, and when I went back to the city, he was stuck standing at the stable. After a while, even though Ciara and I made it to the location we were supposed to go to, she decided to go back to the pub in the city and is now sitting down, drinking, as she was when I first found her. So now they are both stuck, and I cannot proceed with the quest. I have tried to turn off the PS4 and turn it back on a couple of times, as this fixed a similar issue previously, but that has not worked in this case.

    @crickert2014 your comment is neither helpful nor indicative of the feelings of the rest of the players.

    We're all frustrated by this bug and I'm sure they're not happy to have the main mission in their first DLC so completely broken. So let's give them the benefit of the doubt and help resolve so we can all get back to doing what we love:

    Mercilessly raiding monasteries and killing innocent guards.

    @veddie33 yes, exactly the same for me.

    @seawardghost Well, I am actually thinking about asking for a refund as well. They released a DLC that is not at all ready... They should have tested and fix it a bit more, so now they should work harder to do it in the same way we all have to work harder when we under perform at our jobs. If you release a deficient product, it is normal that people get upset. Look at what happened with cyberpunk. For me Valhalla is much better, but the DLC is not at the moment. This is not the only problem with it and they know it...

    Hello there,

    Thank you for continuing to update this thread with reports on your experience with "Flann Over Ireland." If you have encountered this issue in-game, please try to provide us with as much of the following information as possible:

    • Who isn't moving? Did Ciara leave for the coronation, or did Barid?

    This additional information is very useful for the development team as they investigate this issue further.

    @Fenric72 & @Warriorcat279 - Thanks for sharing your reports with us. I've passed these along to the development team.

    @Jynxie900 - Thanks for providing me with all of the requested information. I can see that you play the game on Xbox, so I'd recommend checking out this support article for more informatoin on how to capture video on your console. You're also welcome to use alternative recording devices, such as a camera phone. You can upload those videos to a sharing platform (such as YouTube or Google Drive) and send a link to the video within this thread.

    I'm sorry to hear that you're unable to load up an earlier save to see if this allows you to progress with "Flann Over Ireland." Thank you for letting us know that. We don't yet have any new information to share regarding a fix from the development team. As soon as we have any new updates from the investigation, these will be shared within this thread as soon as we're able to do so.

    @Crickert2014 - We've requested videos from affected players as the development team has asked for these as part of the ongoing investigation. If the development team decide that they no longer require videos, we will share this information within the thread. In the meantime, we request that affected players provide us with all the requested information from the development team, if they are able to.

    Rest assured that the development team are investigating what could be potentially causing this issue for players, and are working towards a resolution. If you'd like to learn more about the investigation steps, I recommend checking out this Dev Blog for more insight into the internal development processes.

    @AlexWeav - Thank you so much for providing us with such a detail report, and for including both a video and the actions you took during the quest. I've shared this report with the development team so they can take a closer look.

    @sajimces - I'm sorry to hear that you feel this way, and would like to seek a refund. If you have purchased the content from the Ubisoft Store, then please note that purchases of downloadable content are final and not eligible for a refund. If you have purchased the content from another retailer, then you will need to contact them directly for more information about their individual refund policies.

    Thank you 😊

    By now it would be appreciated to hear a word from "The development team" about any progress.

    This bug is a gamestopper and puts people off from Ubisoft.

    • After arriving to the coronation area and talking to Ciara I noticed that Barid was missing but his horse was there.
    • Found him at the stable impossible to communicate with in any way including arrows.
    • Then found Ciara back drinking at the bar also impossible to communicate with including arrows.
    • Rode to the coronation area, killed Barids horse I guess as test and followed the wagontracks to find that the place where they ended I had cleaned out before.
    • The quest is now stuck with Ciara drinking at the bar and Barid standing at the stable which has no horses in it.

    While waiting for the solution for the Flann quest bug I cleand out the whole of Ireland so if ithe bug is not solved I have to redo the whole DLC since there is no suitable save to fall back on.

    Waiting and hoping.

    I’ve been playing The Wrath of the Druid content, and I started the storyline ages ago, but the part where you’re meant to take Ciara and the king to Tara, is playing up for me. I originally took Ciara to Tara and when we got there the game froze and when I went back in, she was back at the bar and king was at the stables, but I can’t talk to either of them. So I decided to continue playing hoping that it would fix itself. Nothing has worked and I’ve since unlocked the whole map of Ireland. Gone back after powering off my console and unplugging it for a while, even trying to go back to England and then back to Ireland, and even tried exiting the animus, but nothing has fixed it yet. The only thing I can think of is resenting my game from the new content which I’ve played for a good 8 hours or more so far. So I really don’t what to do that. Is there anything else I can try first?

    In short: assassin's creed valhalla ("Wrath of the Druids") can not escort Kiara and Barid in the task "Flann, Lord of Ireland".
    Detail: Protected Ciara, bathed, came to Barid, but only Ciara jumped on the horse, and Barid stayed at the stables.
    Ciara and I arrived at the coronation site, where she began pacing back and forth in the tent without yielding to any manipulation.
    After which I tried re-saving/re-loading the game, completely PS5. Didn't work. Went back to England and poked around the map of Ireland, hoping that somehow the storyline would come to life.
    But the only thing that changed: Ciara walked from the coronation site back to the tavern where I protected her and picked her up, sat down at another table, and is also unresponsive to any action. Barid just stood there like he was standing still by the stables.
    It took 2 days - almost all of Ireland, captured 6 trading posts, Dublin is 4 level of fame, and the main storyline is dead - very disappointing.

    Same story here.

    Accepted quest, had to ride to the coronation. I assumed both of em would go there so i just went to the location. In the tent i noticed only the lady went there. So i went back to Dublin to find the dude. He was still at the stables. Unable to communicate with him or move him in any way.

    Then i went back to the coronation location, the lady was still in the tent.

    No progress to be made here so i went back to england to do the Reda quests. Then i came back to the coronation location to see if Barid was there yet, but this time the lady was gone from the tent she was walking back to Dublin.

    I followed her, and now she's just chilling at the bar, not doing much. And Barid is still standing at the stables.

    Cleared WotD in the meantime, still no bugfix. If you wanna see a movie, check youtube / reddit / other posts. Its all the same: Barid is bugged at the stables, initiating the whole problem, and the woman is the one actually moving to the location until Ireland is loaded and she goes back to the bar.
    ....rant time...
    If this takes as long as the River Raids bug (foreign resources reset to 1) then im not going to buy any AC game anymore. I couldnt even play the River Raids for more then a month. Stop releasing games with story/progress breaking bugs, it literally cant even be played.
    The whole emersion is gone now.

    @ubi-borealis Hi! I've been away for a week so havent been able to respond. It's actually not my account that is locked on this mission but my girlfriend. And she has an up-to-date cloud stored save on the PS4. Do you want her PSN so you can check or?
