    Another report, another bug. This time it's a mystery/world event in Essexe, with a man and boar that supposedly can sniff out treasure. Started it way back when my power level was sub-100, but had to abandon it when I couldn't interact with the first "treasure" the boar dug up. I thought it would reset and I would just re-attempt later. Now I'm power level ~250 and went back to the area, and the world event has NOT reset. The boar is presumably still in the woods somewhere, but I don't even know where to look, since world events like these have no quest indicator/pointer. With how buggy some of these events are, maybe Ubi should provide us a way to reset them if things go wrong, as they clearly have in this case. Any suggestions on how I can fix this mess?

    Welp it's even worse -- I found the quest boar, but it's stuck in the forest, not moving, not doing anything. I can't interact with it, can't kill it, can't do anything. Again, these world events could REALLY use a way to force reset them in case things go wrong.

    I've played further and fast traveled around more before coming back to the event area. Still bugged. Here's how it looks at the world event marker on the map:

    undefined

    and here's where the event is on the map in Essexe:

    undefined

    Here's the stuck boar; can't hit/kill it, can't push it, can't burn it, can't interact with it in any way (note the world event marker for this on the compass):

    undefined

    Here's where the boar is on the map (indicated by player position):

    undefined

    Tried everything I could think of, nothing works. Would really appreciate some help here Ubisoft.

    @csahendriks Hey there! Thank you for the detailed report, and screenshots. I have reported this up to the developers to be investigated, however I do not have any sort of workaround or fix as of yet. Your patience is really appreciated!

    @csahendriks @Ubi-Spud Okay, i had this exact issue. But restarting the game made the hog disappear . Allowing me to examine the treasure that was right under its foot. And the quest proceeded as planned. Only i had to look for the boar as it was already running around without me knowing where it was. My take on this the following : The hog was on top of the prompt for me to examine the treasure , that made it impossible for me to interact with the prompt. Only when the hog disappeared or moved away was i able to continue the quest

    @luminox94
    That's entirely possible, but in my case nothing so far has worked. I've tried restarting the game, save-loading multiple times, fast travel, progressing the story, and so forth. I started this world event back when my power level was less than 100; it is now ~260, and the event is still bugged. At this point it looks like nothing short of a complete reset of the world event would help, and I haven't been able to do that either.

    I am sorry to hear you cannot progress this quest.

    I have seen reports of not being able to interact with the boar during the quest, but are you not able to start this quest at all?

    @mattrogerthat try going back to prepare save and then save it to see if your saved data is curated if so delete it and resave and try the mission again.

    @ubi-swaggins not the original poster obviously, but if the issue is the same as mine, the quest started fine, but I left and then came back to complete it and now the hog and master just sit there. So yes, not able to interact with the hog after starting the quest.

    @csahendriks

    I had the same issue and fixed it. The quest giver is sleeping and the boar is just standing somewhere doing nothing. 300 levels later returned no dice.

    But i found a way to complete it.

    What the boar is doing is waiting for you to loot the item before the script moves furhter. If it stands still it means there is a item somewhere around him that u need to loot. However the boar can bug out which means it travels a lot further away from the item it dug up. So what u need to do is walk around the boar in a huge area to see if u see something lootable on the ground. once u do the boar will move fowards again to the next item.

    Have fun.

    I was able to finish this quest. I also noticed after the fact that this was for XBox; I'm on a PS4.

    I found the original guy and the hog. I then ran around the forest and I came upon a sparkly spot near a tree on a knoll (I'm sorry that I didn't really pay attention to where it was from the spot, but I didn't really expect it would work) that was realativily close to the tent. When I dug the at the spot, I found some treasure and again nothing happened. I went back to tent spot and the quest continued and I was able to finish it.

    Hope this helps someone.

    I went to the location, started the mission and the boar went to the first spot and the boar started to sniff around and the boar did no more, i awaited for five minutes and nothing happened, i tried to interact with everything and nothing was popping up, so i decided to reload the game, the boar is back by his owner and nothing is happening, i can't even interact with the boar or his owner.

    At the event start point. The boar is there, but the NPC is not. Have tried restarting the game, loading save, etc. Have now cleared the rest of the game, this is my last remaining mystery...

    I started the quest and found the first 2 oar treasures but after the fight with the bandits the last boar treasure failed to spawn. I've search the entire area around the boar but it doesn't show up. It's my last mystery in the area. I tried reloading the game

    @tcubie last treasure should be where the bandits appeared. The pig should be standing next to it. If it's not there it's a bug.
