@ubi-borealis Just want to say thank you to you and other Ubi-agents, who have been acting as the bridge between us and the development team. I cannot begin to imagine all that criticism you need to take for those team members and the QA staff members.
I believe a lot of our frustration results from the fact that, one, this issue has been reported for simply SO long almost since launch in November or December but is STILL not addressed after multiple patches; two, this issue does not appear to be that complicated to deal with but other less important tweaks were instead given higher priority; three, this issue is tied to base-game rewards and a Ubisoft Connect challenge.
So I would really appreciate it if you could somehow (just maybe) tell those Ubisoft staff members up there to please, please, please make the fish problem a higher priority. I really want to be patient, but patience will eventually run out.
@ubi-borealis On the one hand, thank you for actively approaching us and informing us of the current status regarding the big fish issue, and yet on the other hand, when "the development team are still looking into the missing big fish", just what on earth do they mean? (I mean the team, not you Ubi-Borealis)
I suspect that the issue involves some bad, knotty coding. Otherwise, how is it possible that all other big-size fish types manage to spawn properly but not Flat Fish, Mackerel and Eel? Don't all fish use the same group of coding when it comes to their spawning and overall behaviour? Did the development team directly consult the one(s) who wrote the coding for the fish? He/She/They could not even understand what and where went wrong after nearly a quarter of a year?
While I am glad to know this issue will be fixed, the development team had better review on the way they handled this issue because there is A LOT to be desired. I am not trying to be unreasonable by demanding a completely bug/glitch-free game of this size, but I am strongly convinced this issue could have been dealt with much earlier and with much less hassle.
Sorry for the ranting.
I too am affected by this issue; as a completionist myself I really want to complete all fishing challenges and get the weapon. Like many here, I am getting desperate by the seemingly inaction from the side of the staff.
But I would also like to urge all of us to remain calm and civil; resorting to verbal abuse or trolling certainly would not make the situation any better. In the path of pursuing justice, take care not to become the very thing you hate.
Ubisoft if you could see this, even if you cannot offer a quick solution, at least keep us informed of your investigation and progression of fixing the issue. If it is more complicated than we think, no worries, but at least inform us to ease our worries.
Please keep up with the good work of patching the game. Love patch 1.2.0.
@adtc5812 First of all, I am sorry to hear you have an alcohol problem.
If you find content in the game causing you to feel so unpleasant, may I suggest you stop playing?
Before the game is launched, unless I remembered wrongly, there already were teasers showing that drinking would be a feature in the game.
Back in ACIV, hunting marine creatures was a feature and it was attacked by animal lovers. I love animals, but since killing all marine creatures was tied to an achievement (I believe), I had to kill them. The thought that I was "forced" to do so never crossed my mind.
In Fable, to get all Demon Doors, the protagonist must have a "relationship" with NPCs, and I generally avoid getting into a relationship with NPCs in games (same in Valhalla). Still, I never thought that the game was forcing me to do something I avoid in real life.
As much as I sound like a jerk, I need to be frank: games really can't cater to all kinds of people in this world. There are people having phobias of all kinds of stuff, or find any kinds of actions repulsive, but if all that has to be taken into consideration, there will be too many restrictions and nearly no games can be designed.
Back to your case, I sincerely hope you can find a solution to your problem.
I'm from the 80s. Been playing the AC series since the very first game.
So far, I have been enjoying all of the AC titles. Of course, some more, some less. Valhalla is the one which I have sunk in the most no. of hours (without doing grinding.)
However, even so, this time I have to say I am somewhat disappointed with Ubisoft. First, the game is quite clearly not tested enough for bugs, and second, even after so many bug reports Ubisoft chooses to prioritise other less important tweaks. I also played Watch Dogs Legions and man that game was a mess - all those frequent crashes.
So I do not attack Ubisoft simply because I enjoy doing it or I am feeling entitled, but because the technical quality of their two most recent works was just so disappointing. Large games surely have bugs and glitches I understand but not this many.
Still need to fix:
- Mark of Sol bow still purchasable after buying it.
- Bjorn not staying in long ship crew.
- Big flatfish, eel and mackerel not showing up.
- Asgard ship cosmetics doubled due to buyable from shop and fishing shack rewards
- armors duplicated due to talking to tattooist (NOT fixed as Ubisoft claimed)
- quest items / chest keys remaining in Inventory after using them / quest finished
- the 3 new skills disappearing from skill tree
- treasures not spawning after acquiring their maps
Playing on Xbox One.
@sattium85 I also watched that video today. The fact that all those better items need to be bought outside of the game using real money, and are in higher no. than those in the game itself, really should be addressed.
As a general "rule", I never buy such add-ons and other items requiring micro-transaction, since I do not want to support this kind of business mode.

- I can see why others want it, although I would not have need of it since I only have base-game & those festival items (I never bought any Reda shop item), so it is not hard for me to look for what I need.
- I can use this surely, but considering that AC Odyssey did not allow us to sell back resources to merchants, I doubt Valhalla will (though I am still hopeful)
- They will be added, surely for the upcoming DLC, not sure if they will come to the base game though.
@heroicgnat When you mean "updates", are you referring to all those patches which fixed issues & added new skill tree knots? Then yes, they can only be obtained by connecting the console to the Xbox Network (or "LIVE" as it was known).
All these updates are post-launch items and thus can only be distributed to players through the Internet. Can't see Ubisoft printing physical copies of them and selling them in stores.
@caosck If you have already maxed out your skill tree, than Yanli will sell 1 single mastery point each time rather than 1 skill point.
Yeah next time when Ubisoft updates the game and gives more skill point knots, do some calculation ahead and plan how to get the exact no. of skill points required so as not to have excessive, unspend-able ones.
@caosck "Talent point"? You mean "skill point" am I right?
This issue from what I know is due to your levelling up and gaining excessive skill points. It is like this: each time you level up, you gain 2 skill points. However, if you have just one ability knot left, then you will have 1 excessive skill point left, UNLESS Ubisoft later updates the game and adds new ability knots.
So it is recommended to buy 1 single skill point from Yanli's shop in Ravensthorpe to reach the exact no. of skill points needed.
@sub4more "the only thing preventing me from playing the game" sounds a tiny little bit exaggerated if you do not mind my saying so. At least it is not game-breaking and the raining will go away after some time passes.
But I am not defending the dev. team; the thing is, this raining problem was NOT present in the game when it was launched, and it must have been somehow "added" after an update. Updates are supposed to fix problems, not add them.
Now I am guessing that this raining could be related to quests (I could be wrong). There might be quests which have fixed weather and that coding has messed up with the weather initialisation when booting the game up.
And speaking of weather, storm was in fact present in the game but I have seen it very very rarely in Ravensthorpe.
@leocce Is it possible for you to start a new game on PS5 and just rush to England and attempt the trophy? You have my full sympathy but maybe it is better to try that method rather than waiting endlessly.
And could it be more related to PS rather than Ubisoft's side?
(I apologise in advance if it does not work; please do not hate me; just trying to help)
