    When opening the large raid chests or breaking down doors that call a crew member to assist sometimes a few npcs will show up but not help which leaves you sitting there mid action. Most of the time (80%) just exiting and redoing the action works but sometimes I've had to leave the immediate area and return to get the npcs to assist.

    Happened to me as well. Exactly the same room, on exactly the same quest.

    Fixed by running to the other side of the monastery and back.

    Okay, so my problem was on Isle of Ely Monastery raid. In one of the buildings, I tried to open one of the chests, but my allies would only get as far as the door to enter the room before turning around and running off. I can't open it without their help. I have noticed that Dag was nowhere to be found if that would affect it somehow. [I managed to fix it by loading a previous save]

    Stuck opening a chest in Meldeburne (inside the church with the prisoners in cages and the upper level). Another viking has come to help open it but it will not finish opening, we both stand there pushing it like a pair of lemons. If I let go of it, they continue to try and beckon for help. I can resume the attempt to open it to no avail.

    @psyozide Hey there, thank you for your report! We have had a few reports regarding this issue. One workaround is to go to another area in the raid, then come back and try to open it again. Let me know if this works! If not, you could try loading an earlier save.

    @fiesermoep
    Yes, that usually works, except when it doesn't and I have to load an earlier save and do the raid again. Heck, I've even had a few CTDs during raids. What happens is the AI companions start doing their headless chicken thing, then suddenly button prompts to open doors/chests disappear, and then all of a sudden, CTD. It's like the game runs into so many bugs it just gives up and dies.

    @falo2k Same location but a different chest, I can try to open the chest, but no raider actually goes to the chest. They run into the room and get 5' away and turn around or just stand next to the chest, none of them touch the chest.

    Edit: Funny thing. Went around clearing minor chests and opening other cages, and new hostile NPCs spawned and after that a raider was already trying to open that one chest which that let me open it.

    @jandraelune When the basics of looting chests get overly complicated to the point that either AI or animations can break things. Big round of applause to the design behind that.

    I've been forcing open the first chest for 20 minutes now. The raiders will make it to the pulpit, stop and then run away. The designated raider to push will then cycle to the next one who does the same thing. Can the designated raider just be the closest one to you and just move to the closest spot next to your location? Or is there a workaround?

    When raiding I press the button to interact with the barricaded door but Eivor just gets stuck in the animation, asking for help, but no one comes. The same happens when trying to get help opening chests. After backing out and trying multiple times I've eventually been able to get it to work but in the meantime, it's extremely annoying.

    @falo2k I just had this problem too. To fix it I had to go back to my long boat and start the raid again. Everyone was still dead so I just ran back up to the chest. Waited for another raider to get fairly close to me and then tried opening it again.

    Same problem. No one would enter the small room to help. They all stood at the door looking in. So I left the area to ransack around and when I came back I had a mate asking for help to open it. Resolved itself.

    @ashiyuki Same issue here (currently on patch 1.0.2)
    Very frustrating - they just turn around at the door like you show in your pic.

    @check_s6x This worked, thanks.

    I stood there for 10 seconds while checking a email because the animation of opening that chest is already long enough, then after I checked my email and looked up, there was a distinct lack of opened chest on my screen. So I waited for another 10 seconds, before fetching my keyboard and recorded this video

    When I raid saint albanes abbey there's a chest you need 2 people to open however the animation works but the chest stays shut therefore dosent count towards opening or gaining materials.

    Hey there! We are aware of issues with raiding and are looking into it. I'm glad you found a workaround. I will share this with the team!

    @asuhayda Thank you for reaching out, sorry to hear you are experiencing this.

    Can you confirm if you start the Raid from your Longship or do you arrive at the location on foot or via mount and then start the Raid?

    Hey folks! We are aware of issues with your crew during raids. Yes, going to another location in the area and coming back can resolve this but I appreciate this is a workaround and not a fix. Any updates to this issue with be communicated in the forums. Thank you for your patience!

    In some cases, once Eivor is waiting at a chest for a crewmate to help open it, people just walk past and don't help. Same problem with doors. I personally had this happen to me and it lasted 10 minutes. The only workaround I can see for now is to close your game and retry.
