    Hey, after starting the new Wrath of the Druids DLC (before I had finished the base game) I got to the Blood Bond quest and escorting Barid back to his "castle." I decided part of the way back that I should finish the main game and pick up Gungnir and Mjolnir before going back, and save Wrath of the Druids for when I could stream it for my friends and we could react to it together. I fast-travelled back to England and finished the main game, overwriting my previous save files.

    When I came back to Ireland to return to WotD I found Barid stuck at the graveyard and I was unable to interact with him (I had already spoken to him and cleared the ambush before fast-travelling away.) After save-quitting to see if that would fix it, Barid was suddenly back in Dublin, standing at the cliff next to his "castle." I was still unable to interact with him, though I was able to nudge him part of the way towards the open door of the longhouse. He then promptly power walked back to his spot on the cliff. Decided to record it for evidence and here we are. Video below, forgive the low quality, I only just reinstalled OBS and I wasn't going to make my settings flawless to record a single 3 minute video for a bug report.

    Hello there @chicken4thewin!

    Thanks for taking the time to report this issue. I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble progressing in "Blood Bond," and that Barid is stuck in place outside of the longhouse. Thanks for providing a detailed recall of events, as well as a video that shows Barid's current position.

    I've passed your report along to the development team so they can take a closer look at this. If we require any additional information from you, we will reach out within this thread.

    Thanks 😊

    Hello again @chicken4thewin!

    The development team have been taking a closer look at your report, and they've asked me to reach out to you.

    Would you be able to summon your mount and push into Barid with it? The development team would like to see if that triggers Barid to jump onto the mount. They're also interested in seeing if pushing him towards the longhouse with the mount triggers the scene to continue.

    You mentioned that you've already tried nudging him part of the way. The developers are interested if seeing if using the mount changes the outcome.

    If you're able to record a video that shows you doing this, including the outcome, that would be helpful for the ongoing investigation.

    Thank you! 🙂

    @ubi-borealis sorry about the late response. in my initial attempts I tried to use my mount to move Barid and even tried to back into him to prompt him to get on but to no avail. I will try again though

    Thank you, @chicken4thewin! If Barid still refuses to move in "Blood Bond," please send us a video that shows you attempting this. The development team would be interested to see how Barid reacts to being pushed towards the longhouse, and it will be useful for their investigation into this issue 🙂

    Sorry this one went on a bit longer and that I swore a couple of times, getting a bit frustrated with the King of Dublin because he doesn't want to go home. Thanks for trying to help!

    @ubi-mark no need to apologize, as frustrating as this is I understand that bugs and glitches happen and I genuinely appreciate you guys taking the time to actively help the playerbase. to be honest I've been having an absolute blast with Valhalla thus far and I think this is the only major issue I've had with the game. In my opinion it's probably the best game in the series thus far! thanks for the support and I hope you have a good day!

    @shrreek how did you fix it? I'm still completely stuck and Barid is still just chilling in the exact spot. any attempt to move him leads to him just kinda going back to where he originally stood

    @chicken4thewin Hello friend, it's been a while since I played, but I played a little bit today and the error continues. It is frustrating not to fix this Bug until today.

    @ubi-borealis It's frustrating that you don't fix this Bug until today. I don't feel like playing this game anymore, because I can't improve on it due to the BUG. And there's still no prediction of when the bug will be fixed, it's a shame. I shouldn't have bought the game, I wanted my money back.

    @ubi-borealis counter to what shreek said I haven't been playing Valhalla lately because of the bug but at the same time I very much look forward to the fix and continuing my conquest of the north eastern atlantic

    I have purchased the DLC and upon attempting the first quest, Blood Bond.
    I followed Barid to the long house but could not interact with him once there.
    He is now just standing in the middle of the market and I still cannot interact or "follow him" as the quest objective suggests

    @Ubi-Borealis
    That's a pretty average response about the refund policy. how long is the cooling off period as I bought the DLC a few days ago and have already encountered this glitch which is affecting the whole point of the expansion.
    Is there a date for the fix yet?
