I cannot complete the shifting loyalties quest (and therefore cannot receive the Freedom Fighter trophy/achievement) because there is a glitch in the system which prevents the final opponent from appearing. I have completed the quests in Kalstad and Dokkerland, as well as retrieving the Monestones in Nidheim; I can even find the dead thrall with the stones arranged, but noting else ever happens except a triggered enemy encounter that cannot be completed, even when the lone enemy that appears is defeated.
I am running version 1.6.2 on a PS5, utilizing a PS4 disc.
I have reviewed the previous thread regarding this error: https://discussions.ubisoft.com/topic/168697/tfs-unable-to-complete-shifting-loyalties/4?lang=en-US; I have attempted each of the workarounds (dying in the water after defeating the enemy, exiting/reentering the Animus, etc), but none are successful (and, in principle, I shouldn't have to use a workaround anyway; it should just work).
I have attached a video of my run (starting in Nidheim) that shows 1) that the thrall's corpse doesn't appear, but that I can interact with it as though it were there, 2) that the werewolf never spawns and that 3) that you are trapped in the area after defeating the enemy that does actually spawn. You can see my video here:
I would be glad for someone to fix this as I have made about a dozen runs trying to unlock this trophy, all of which end precisely the same way. I can't get the trophy until/unless this is fixed. I know this was a problem prior to version 1.6.1, so it is very frustrating that it was not fixed by now, especially if, as I anticipate, support for this game is going to end now that AC: Mirage has been announced.
I know that there are nine Embers of Muspelheim in the new DLC, and that they are found on the Muspelheim Monoliths. However, after believing I had found all the embers, it turns out that I only have eight. To rectify this:
- I have visited all nine monoliths (at least three times each) and check have checked the location where the ember is supposed to be collected (I have even pulsed Odin's sight to verify there are no treasures that are not immediately obvious);
- I have checked the world map, but I see that each monolith has an X where the ember should be (and none have the gold "treasure" or "wealth" point);
- I have completed every region (finding every wealth, artifact, and completing every mystery) and have finished the main story;
- I have visited every blacksmith in Svartalfheim, including Skavi specifically, on multiple occasions hoping one offers to upgrade my Huger Rip, but no one offers to upgrade my Huger rip.
After all of this, I'm still stuck at eight, with absolutely no idea what to do now. I have wasted HOURS trying to figure this out. Does anyone have a suggestion for what might be going on? Is there a glitch? I seem to be the only person to have this issue as I cannot find any other persons who has complained of the same issue. Any suggestions for what may be going on and how it can be rectified will be appreciated.
@spirantcrayon22 - Yes, but insofar as I can tell, my situation is unique, hence why I arrived here. I have seen a reddit thread wherein the poster was missing their last ember, but it turns out they simply could not locate the final monolith. As can be seen, my problem is substantively different from that problem. As this point, given that no one else has stepped forward to offer a suggestion, the only realistic option I have is to restart the game from the beginning, which I am really not looking forward to doing. Here's where I sincerely wish there was a New Game+ mode...
In any case, I appreciate your help; you were the only person to even offer a suggestion and I do appreciate you taking time to try to figure out what was happening.
@spirantcrayon22 - Sadly, that was the first ember I collected, and one of the first mysteries I completed. Just to check, I did return to the area to see if the start point was there, but to no avail. I’ve now finished the DLC, and this is the last trophy to acquire, so I’m at a loss for what is left for me to do.
@spirantcrayon22 - Yes; I have actually cleared all the Mysteries and most of the Artifact in each region; I am missing three wealth in Vangrinn, but these are marked on my map as being in Jarnshus and Feigardr, since I haven't undertaken the missions related to those parts of the story. In Vangrinn, the only Artifact I am missing is the Heroic Saga from Feigardr.

I can't be the only person having this issue if there is and yet I can't find any information about it anywhere else on the web (so apparently I AM the only one with the problem). Any suggestions for where I might have gone wrong will be appreciated.
