@ranger_two14 I'm experiencing the exact same bug.
I decided to get all the blood stones after talking to the Witch where she says to get her the roots for the exilir. Two of the stones are in the giant's mitten so I just strolled in, picked them up, and then went on my way. Well, now I actually have to go inside there for a mission but now theres like an invisible wall preventing me. I tried quitting, booting back up and nothing. Left back to England, came back but still nothing. My last manual save would take me back dozens of hours of gameplay, so that's not an option.
@rumenrs disagree with a lot of your points, however this game clearly needed months of polish and bug fix.
I cant move for longer than 40ft without seeing some stupid bug. I have two world events that are glitched out and cannot be completed. The Lost Cauldron mission is glitched out so Jotenhiem is on the back burner. NPCs are always ruining cutscenes by either walking through me or objects in the background. Falling infinitely where two rocks meet, only to finally die from a 15 centimeter fall. Jumping off a ledge/ceiling/post, hitting the ground then warping back up and then down again - constantly.
I've been playing Ubisoft games since The Sands of Time on the Ps2 so I'm used to their style of clunkiness. However launching Valhalla in this state is unnacceptable
@jpabenites no thanks.
Valhalla's system is much better as it actually rewards exploring and finding weapon chests, unlike in Odyssey where you just had to find the golden question mark amidst the sea of grey ones. It was easily the least fun I ever had playing that blasted game, opening up all these chests and getting the same spartan breastplate for the 57th time.
Do I think Valhalla would benefit from having more gear in general? Of course, that would be great, but the RNG and loot system is not something I felt EVER had to be implemented into this franchise. What they started in AC Unity was fantastic, and should've been the model going forward.
@lukensen87 Indeed! Valhalla stepping away from the whole fantasy and demigod nonsense is my biggest praise of it!
And I'm sure ppl are going to flame me for this, but oh well. The further this series can move from Odyssey, the better. That game was bloated, boring, grindy AF, and frankly should be ashamed to have Assassin's Creed in the title
Although I wish there was at least a bit more variety in weapon designs we can use, I still prefer it to the RNG loot nonsense we've had for the past two games. It brings me back to the better better days and games of Assassin's Creed (in my opinion).
Also kind of irks me seeing all the cool armor and weapon sets in the store, but that's just Ubisoft being Ubisoft, I guess lol.
@dl_thunderr The game needs to adjust the experience required to level up and also how they give away skill points like candy.
Theres a lot of [censored] to fill up in the trees, yeah, but I'm also sitting on 100+ skill points in order not to over level myself and make the game's difficulty a joke. Currently running through the 160 power level areas, did a decent amount of exploring and I'm technically power level 265.
