So far through reloading and trying again over and over I've had mixed results. The elk took a while, black shuck took forever to show up, the bear showed up first time, the corpse eaters took a long time, and the other wolf took exactly 4 attempts (idk why I remember that). Now I'm attempting to mount the bull and it is just plain not working. I've tried 20+ with missions active, no mission active, day, night, raining, clear, before upgrading shops, after upgrading shops. Nothing. And this is after 1.0.4, which saw a bunch of new bugs introduced (most flagrant being enemies spawning directly behind you and enemies just standing passively until they are hit), I'm concerned that this bug got worse as well.
Has anyone had success mounting a legendary animal post 1.0.4?
In vinland I had 100% completed it minus the legendary animal fight (which I opted to not fight due to the known longhouse bug). Upon return a new treasure was placed on a previously defeated enemy that cannot be picked up. This is potentially "completionist achievement ruining", which is especially upsetting as I've been babysitting this game every step of the way otherwise to make sure things I pick up actually register properly. And i know for a FACT that wealth was completed in Vinland before I initially departed and it only came back after the newest patch. I'm terrified of what new bugs wait for me
If anyone has this problem, sidequest NPCs may sometimes be unavailable at certain points of the story. I imagine this is to prevent possible bugs that could result from an NPC being too close to a part of the story that would take place. The NPCs mentioned in the OP do not appear during the "destroying the compass" part of the story, but do appear at least in previous parts of the main storyline.
At least 2 NPCs have not spawned in Lunden for Mystery sidequests. The first is a woman who is supposed to be on a pier, the second is a woman who is supposed to be outside St. Paul's church playing an instrument. Reloading previous saves have not resolved the issue and neither has exiting and rebooting up the game. Has anybody else encountered this problem or similar? What was your work-around?
So I had the same problem mounting my first trophy (elk). Due to previous bugs I've encountered in the game of things not unlocking when they're supposed to (specifically the wolf companion ability not unlocking after completing the required quest) I did not save after giving the tanner the trophy. First giving it to him resulted in no mount. I reloaded and tried again, no luck. I reloaded and fast traveled and tried again, no luck. In my last ditch effort I reloaded and farted around ravensthorpe building houses and changing decorations for a little bit. This time it worked and it was mounted properly! I don't know what I did differently this time, as the building upgrades and decoration changes I did before the successful attempt were the same as the ones I did initially. The only difference is it was raining during the successful attempt.
Can anyone verify that once a hunting trophy is mounted it stays mounted?
I would recommend babysitting this game with nearly everything you do and saving often in different slots. Just because the game says something happened doesn't mean it actually did. Turn in legendary animals one-by-one and verify they are mounted before saving and moving onto the next one. They should, eventually, be properly mounted but it will take lots of reloads to do so.
