What have you done? Other than the issue of dealing with spam. There was nothing wrong with the forum as it was! It was simple & easy to use. I could see all unread threads at a glance. This is ugly & I've got to scroll through stuff that used to be stickied in one small section. So much info on the game gets released on various & all social media outlets. Are you trying to drive people away from the forum? I don't have any social media accounts. Other than youtube, the forum is the place I rely on for info on the game.
As part of Ubisoft's 'Happy Holidays' giveaway. They are giving players who haven't already unlocked Bayeks outfit in ubiclub/connect, a chance to claim it NOW!
So Ubisoft is giving away free rewards each day from December 14th - Dec 18th!
As I said in the title, Todays reward is the Bayek outfit, as well as a 'Seafarer Settlement pack'! You have to go to the ubisoft website & click on the 'Happy Holidays' link to claim rewards. They won't appear in your game straight away (I'm not sure when they'll appear)?
I don't know at what time this offer went live, so if you want it, claim it now! There was no publicity about this as far as I'm aware, I just happened to catch a jorraptor vid on youtube about half an hour ago that mentioned it. Pass on the word to anybody that has the game (if you want). Because I guarantee, that in coming days, weeks & months to come there will be posts complaining about 'Locked content'!
Check the website each day for the next 4 days, because new rewards still to come. Whether I actually use any of this stuff, I'll wait and see. I just take everything the game has to offer.
@ubichem I can appreciate a lot of people have put a lot of work into creating the new forum. I used to visit the ubi website once in a blue moon. While I was there I'd take a gander at the forum, see what players were talking about. Maybe read a couple of posts then exit without contributing. But I only really started using the forum regularly about a year & a half, maybe 2 years ago. So I can't really remember how it was before. I just think up until today, it didn't seem broken! Each thread was a slim bar, with the title, thread creator, & name of last post. Without scrolling I could view something like 15 threads at a time.
@Aloninor It's not harsh judgement, it's my honest opinion/first impression. But I'll always give things a try, & if I'm wrong & it turns out to be a better service. I'll be honest about it. I'm not one of those people that forms an opinion & digs their heels in. Won't budge.
Woohoo! I just found one on the farm!
So I went to the farm, (I don't know if this matters) but before I got there there waqs one of those Q'?' traveller guys, so I have nothing left on the map to clear, but I paid him anyway, then all options were greyed out, but 'Mysteries' was in white letters. so selected mystery, then the reminder to check my map popped. There was nothing on the map, so onto the farm, looked around then ran around in front of enemies & got killed (after making a quick save).
So I respawned & killed them all, had a look around, pressed Odins sight & got that Green glow you get when following clues. So it was East of the farm building just outside the broken walls, & sure enough, I got the interact option & got the mission "Avenge (PS logo) lzp_lzp". Then (PS logo) lzp_lzp has fallen in battle. It is up to you to avenge them. Then below the quest icon Find and kill the perpetrator(s). similar to AC Origins.
So as I said I'm not sure, but perhaps paying the experienced Traveller unlocks a nearby victim quest. Just a thought?
BTW you get 100xp for finding the killer, It's showing up in ubiConnect that I've got all this weeks challenges & 'Hall of the Slain' is showing as 1/10, so I'll try looking out for more travellers, see if it's a thing.
EDIT: I forgot to say, I'm playing on ps4 Pro.
@otg_gilamunsta There are another 3 rottweilers in Cent. If you go to the fast travel point 'Saint Hadrian's Priory' (or Abbey). Exactly 400 metres away, in a roughly NorthWest direction. There's an 'L' shaped building, with 2 barred doors. There are 2 guard dogs insidem it's easy to get in through the apex in the roof, there's 2 or 3 of those breakable wicker panels. There's a 3rd dog next door in a building without a door, so be ready, cos, as you walk around, it will spot you. They're easy enough to take down, but it's probably how you kill them that depends on whether they drop teeth. The last time I was there, I only got 1 tooth from the 3 dogs.
@jokercards Glad you got it! Massive thanks & credit to @TheeElf for coming up with the plan & getting the community together to make 'Hall of the Slain' achievable, as well as posts from other players, with input of their experiences.
It could get quite frustrating at times. Doing exactly as other players on the thread have done, or doing the same as you did before, & yet there are no bodies?! Then out of the blue. Eivor says something like, "what have we here"? And the irony of the fact that, 'Avenging a Player' is way easier than getting the quest to pop in the first place!?
I haven't been overly affected by bugs in the game! I can't complete 'The Order'. And like pretty much everyone else, I need a few fish. But completing the 'Avenge a Player', then 'Hall of the Slain', was a bit of a relief. Because there was no indication to me that it was do-able. I've got most of the fish. The rest will appear, either this upcoming patch, or next again.
@acedyn22 'Access the Animus' released a YT video yesterday(Friday). With news of the next season. It featured an Ubisoft blurb, it read:-
"Season 2, named Ostara, will start in march 2021 with a first update bringing a festival in the Settlement, a new game mode that builds on Valhalla's core combat experiences, new gear and cosmetic items. More information about Wrath of the Druids, the first expansion of Assassin's Creed Valhalla releasing in Spring 2021, will come at a later time".
I think the Equinox's & Solstice's are about the 21st of the month, I imagine the Ostara, will be a similar affair to the Yule festival without snow on the settlement. And maybe instead of herding cattle for slaughter, we'll be delivering little lambs for slaughter. An orlog tournament instead of drinking challenge. I don't expect much, but it would be really cool if the snow was completely gone from the north of England, just for a nosey in those snowed in houses near Hadrian's Wall.

So the UbiConnect challenges reset in just over 2 hours time. The Community Challenge this past week, was 'win 350,000 Orlog games'! I think the target was reached yesterday, so any players that want to pick up an additional 10 opals, just need to win 1 orlog game to claim. But there's only 2 hours left before the challenges reset.
@jcar4327 It looks like we'll finally beat the weekly Community Challenge this week! So the target this week is 'Recruit 350,00 Jomsvikings'. The total is currently just over 349,000. So I reckon the target will be reached within the next couple of minutes. Spend 100 silver recruiting a jomsviking at any pier/harbour/port (but not at the new jomsviking barracks) & get 10 opals.
@JorRaptor put out a video this week, saying that if everybody that viewed his video, recruited just 5 joms, then the target would be broken. I'm not saying it was jorraptor viewers alone that made it beatable this week, but it helps put some perspective on these huge numbers.
But they should really rethink these community challenges. Because walking up to a joms & a simple 'Hold' to pay 100 silver is so much easier than doing continual drinking, or Orlog games. Those sort of challenges are only possible either within the first month of the games release where loads of players are engaged. Massive Assassination challenges shouldn't feature when one-shot assassination is bugged.
The new wonky fish are Halibut. Since the start of the game they swim flat (horizontally). But if you look at the position of their eyes, they're obviously meant to swim through the water vertically. I don't know if this new 'twist' affects the small halibut, but I caught a few regular & large over the past couple of days since the new patch & both those sizes have that weird bend & they skim or float above the water. I can only assume the dev's have done something to them in order to distinguish halibut from Flatfish. So proof to those doubters on the megathread that say the devs aren't trying to fix the missing mackerel & flatfish.
I have photos but I can't upload them, I get an error message about dimensions being too big. Sorry.
I don't know if it's been posted already, but I can't see it in titles. But for any players that want to use their free '300 helix credits', there's a sale in the Helix store right now, & is available for another 4 days, 19 hours. There aren't massive discounts, but if you have 2 or 3 gear pieces from Reda, you might be able to get the rest of the set at a discount with your free credits.
not sure why you are spamming that repley everywhere.
@asgardian02 Not sure why you felt the need to start this thread? As it was already mentioned in another thread! Everybody playing the game gets that message! Are you just being a greeby, narcissistic, little troll?
@karloz1995 What platform are you on? I'm on ps4, & I got all the stuff in the pack, including the 300 opal. I wish this pack had dropped a few hours earlier, because although I'm not that bothered about skins. I don't like the raven, & Reda had the Bald Eagle for sale for 150 opal up until this weeks reset. It just seemed a bit steep to buy at the time.
So the 300 opal, & the Altair outfit was cool, & very welcome. But I just don't get why all the yule gear, tatts & ornaments were included? My gear was downgraded as well. The set wasn't available to me immediately after the patch, so I logged out & back in. When I logged in again, I got refunded a load of resources (although that may be down to the fact that I had previously loaded an older save & had to upgrade the Moonlight Axe & Spartan Bow more than once).
So I think a fix will come, but I think that including a set of rewards that most players already have has led to unnecessary problems,
I read in this thread a few days ago, where someone commented on the Blue/Green Quest Marker, by the wooden statues of Thor, Odin & Tyr., about 600 metres E/NE of Ravensthorpe. As of the new update, it turns out the blank note now reads
"Shrine to the All-Father
We grant you these offerings so you may protect our travels, be they on water or on land."
But there'e no option to make an offering. I can't remember if there ever was an option to do that earlier in the game or not? Either way, it's not that interesting.
@Asgardian02 I maybe wrong, & if I am, then I apologise! But weren't you one of those guys that complained about not being able to equip the Vinland gear, outside of Vinland? Didn't you think it was a cool looking gear set? Anyhow, I've got the Vinland gear look over the Raven set & I think I'll keep it for a while, so it's ok as far as I'm concerned & 50 silver per item is peanuts, right?
Also the Ostara festival doesn't begin until this thursday I think? READ THE PATCH NOTES!
@asgardian02 Do you have a screenshot or some video showing all the items in your inventory as fully upgraded? I'd present that evidence to customer support. Because I dare say players will complain about being ripped off, but without evidence, I don't think there's anything that can be done about it, other than grinding or buying the required resources again.
