Thank you for continuing to share your experiences with "Saint Faith." The development team had hoped to have this issue resolved in TU 1.2.2, though the investigation was reopened following reports that the issue still persisted. We understand that this issue is preventing players from achieving 100% completion, and we apologise for any inconvenience that has been caused by this.
We can confirm that a fix for "Saint Faith" will be deployed in a future update. We don't yet have a confirmed ETA for when this update is due to be release.
As we have no further information to share at this time, we have decided to temporarily lock this thread as we have enough input and information that we were able to forward to our Development Team. If you want to follow the progress, please just follow this thread by selecting "Watching" in the top-right corner of the thread. Once we have any new updates to share with you all regarding "Saint Faith," we will unlock this thread once again. You can also keep an eye out for updates within the News & Announcements forum.
In the meantime, please refrain from making any duplicate threads about "Saint Faith," as these will be merged into this ongoing Megathread. This will allow us to keep all information and updates from the investigation in one place.
Please note that the development team have not announced any plans to remove this quest from the game, or to remove it from the 100% completion requirements. If you have not already, we would recommend taking a look at our Dev Blog, as it gives great insight into the internal development processes, as well as a pipeline for how fixes are developed and deployed.
Thank you for your understanding
EDIT 16 July, 2021: The development team have announced that they will be deploying a fix for "Saint Faith" in TU 1.3.0. We don't yet have a confirmed ETA for when this update will be deployed. The development team have currently targeted a release period of July 2021. Once we have more information to share regarding TU 1.3.0, it will be posted within this thread and in the News & Announcements forum.
Following the release of our Dev Blog, I would like to reach out to you with some updates regarding "A Brewing Storm." We can now confirm that a fix for this quest will be released with our next Title Update, which is due to be deployed next week.
Patch notes will be shared in our News & Announcements forum closer to the official release dates, so please keep an eye out for these.

Thank you all
I've merged together some similar threads about this issue together into one single thread. I apologise if this has disrupted any ongoing discussion. Creating one thread will allow us to keep all information and updates regarding the issue in one place.
Thanks for reporting this issue within the forums! I actually noticed this whilst playing through a river raid last night, even though I have guaranteed assassinations turned on. I was also able to test on an older save, and guaranteed assassinations returned. I've now passed on your reports to the development team so they can take a closer look at this.
Once we have an new updates to share from the development team, such as requiring additional information from the players within this thread, we will reach out here. Please keep an eye out for any more news and information.
I'd like to take the time to reach out to you all with an update, and to respond to some posts that have been left since my last post. At this moment, I'm afraid we have no new information to share regarding the missing large flatfish/mackerel, or bringing those flying fish back into the water. The development team are still taking a closer look at both of these reports. Once we have any news to share, we will post it within this thread, so please keep an eye out for updates!
@WhoCares78 - Maybe they're flying in the auroras in the sky... they are known as rivers of light, after all
@eL_T_US - Hey there! Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us. Please be assured that the development team has been actively working on this investigation since it was first reported by players. This was something that we had hoped to be resolved in previous updates, and we're sorry for any disappointment that has been caused by their disappearance following these updates. Both myself and @Ubi-Woofer have tried our best to keep you all updated when we can, and we have also been actively passing on any new reports you guys have made following previous updates. As we're not part of the development team, we cannot speculate on how easy or hard this is to fix. Once we do have any more information to share from the investigation, it will be posted within this thread.
@luigispcrew - Don't worry, big mackerel and big flatfish are both included in this!
@SkyrimwitcherFW - Hello! I cannot speak for everyone on the team, but both myself and @Ubi-Woofer are active players of Valhalla! We've both completed the game, and have regularly passed along our own images/videos and save files to help in investigations. We are also both looking forward to finally being able to complete the fishing deliveries @Ubi-Woofer has actually spent a lot of time creating videos to help with finding certain fish (like the small sturgeon and halibut). Once we have any updates to share about the missing large fish, they will be shared in this thread as soon as we know, so please keep an eye out!
If anyone needs help with finding certain fish or creatures, please let @Ubi-Woofer and she'll do her best to make a video for you!
@bielik01 - Thanks for taking the time to share a video with us! I'll pass this along to the development team as well
I would like to reach out you all with an update. Following the announcement of TU 1.2.0, I would like to update you all with the status of the ongoing investigations into "In the Absence of Ealdorman." TU 1.2.0 is due to be deployed 16 March, 2021 at 1PM CET/8AM EDT. You can read the patch notes and learn more here.
The following issues are due to be resolved with TU 1.2.0:
- Unable to give the brooch to Hunwald, due to looting it prior to starting the quest
- Cutscene does not start after finding the Ealdorman in the castle
- Quest objective marker is missing after a crash / game restart
If you are affected by any of these issues following the deployment of TU 1.2.0, please don't hesitate to update this thread so we can take a closer look. Please include a video that shows you have TU 1.2.0 installed, as well as the issue still persisting in-game for you following TU 1.2.0.
The following issues are still under investigation by the development team:
- Bodies to investigate in Roaring Meg's Spring / the sewers are missing
- Status: Under Investigation (additional videos / save games welcomed)
- Comments: This issue has been reported by limited players, but the developers have opened an investigation after receiving an affected save file. Additional videos of the issue and save files would be helpful for them to look further into this. I've asked for an update to see if there is any other information that they require as well.
- Unable to complete the investigation of the three clues
- Status: Under Investigation (additional videos / save games welcomed)
- Comments: This issue remains under investigation, and there are no progress updates to report at the current time. As soon as we receive an update, we'll advise you all of this here.
- Unable to speak to the hospice NPC with the information you need in order to proceed
- Status: Could not be reproduced on TU 1.1.1 (need affected save games to continue investigation)
- Comments: The developers tried to reproduce this issue previously, but could not do so on the previous TU 1.1.1. If you are affected by this issue, they would like to gather your save file for further investigation to take place into this issue.
I would like to share with you all an official update from our teams.
We would like to assure you all that the development team is treating this issue seriously and they are working on a long-term solution. We are also considering a hotfix for this issue. You can read more about what hotfixes are in the Dev Blog, as well as the difference between a hotfix and a title update.
Once we have any new updates to share with you all regarding the missing foreign supplies, we will let you know on our official platforms and within the News & Announcements forum.
Thanks for taking the time to report this within the forums. I've passed these on to the development team to see if they can take a closer look at players being unable to use the PS4 Share Play function following TU 1.1.2.
Once we have any new updates to share, we will post them within this thread. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and appreciate your patience as we investigate this further.
Thanks for continuing to update this thread. I'd like to reach out to you all with an update, as well as address a few specific posts.
The development team are still looking into missing large flatfish/mackerel. At this moment, we have no new information to share regarding this investigation. Once we have any new information to share with you all, it will be posted within this thread, so please keep an eye out for this!
The team have also been able to replicate the flying fish issue, and are taking a closer look at this as well. From what we can tell, this tends to affect large fish more than any other size. Both myself and @Ubi-Woofer have experienced flying large fish in our own gameplay as well. If you notice any other sizes start flying, please post about this within the thread so we can pass this information on. Thanks!
A few of you have mentioned compensation within this thread. Please note that this is at the discretion of the Assassin's Creed: Valhalla team. If compensation is to be offered to players, this information will be shared on our official platforms and within the News & Announcements forum. Additionally, if a hot-fix is announced, or if an alternative method to get these fish (such as via a fish market or by looting soldiers in River Raids) is made available, this will also be shared within the News & Announcements forum.
@DESCAF - I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble keeping small sturgeon in your inventory. If possible, would you be able to send us a video that shows you catching a small sturgeon and it not staying in your inventory? We can then pass this along to the development team for further investigation.
@erdosifazy & @JCar4327 - Based off what I've seen, it's three regular eels that are required.
I apologise for the delayed response. I'd like to provide you all with an update. The development team are still looking into the missing big fish, as well as the issue that causes fish to float and fold up whilst being caught.
As included in the recent "Known Issues" update, the development team are planning to fix this issue in a future update. We're unable to provide a confirmed ETA for this update at this moment in time. Rest assured that once we have more definite information about when this issue is to be resolved, it will be shared within this thread and in the News & Announcements forum.
In the meantime, as many of you have already seen, the "Stinky but Deadly" challenge has been temporarily removed from the Ubisoft Connect core challenges list, as this currently cannot be completed. This challenge will go live again in the future once it becomes possible to complete. By removing the challenge at this current time, it allows players to fully complete all of the available core challenges without "Stinky but Deadly" preventing 100% completion.
Some of you have mentioned having trouble completing the "Hall of the Slain" core challenge. I'd recommend checking out the video provided by @Ubi-Woofer within this thread for more help! If you have any further questions or concerns about this challenge, please post within the linked thread as this is a separate issue to the missing fish.
@GreenTea13121 - What an awesome, if slightly unnerving, picture! The development team are aware of some fish taking up levitating and contortion as a hobby, and are looking into this further.
@Kil_jaeden87 - We're only able to offer support in English within these forums. Would you be able to provide a translation of your post for us? Alternatively, if you'd like to speak to your regional team you're welcome to open a support ticket or start a live chat.
Thank you @xKingMojox, @amr_hayba12 & @SnowWolfYaBoi for sending your reports from your own experience with this issue. I would like to assure you all that the development team has been investigating this issue further, and they have confirmed that they will be deploying a fix in TU 1.3.0. We don't have a confirmed release date for this update. The development team are targeting an ETA of July 2021.
The development team requires no further reports at this time as they have been able to identify what is causing this issue to happen in-game. We thank everyone who took the time to provide us with more information, as this was helpful for the investigation.
As soon as we have more information to share about the release of TU 1.3.0, we will let you know within this thread and in the News & Announcements forum.

Thank you for continuing to update this threads with your reports regarding the Old Cellar, and for sharing your feedback and suggestions regarding the investigation.
The development team are still investigating the missing tablet further, which is why a fix for this issue was not deployed in TU 1.3.0. I apologise for any disappointment that may have been caused by this. I'm happy to share an update from the investigation with you all!

@joydeep95 - I'm sorry to hear you're unable to call Synin. Can you please try changing your raven at the stables to see if this will allow you to summon your raven? If you're still unable to call Synin after changing your raven design, please can you open up a new thread about this issue? That way, we can investigate without going off-topic within this thread about the Old Cellar.
@orgelspielerkmd - I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble completing "Miracle." After bringing the lame man to the spring, did you find and interact with the blind man to bring him to the spring as well? You should be able to find him further down the road of the hill. I'd recommend using your raven to spot him from the skies. You'll need to lead him to the spring to continue the world event!
@TheGravySnake - Thanks for sharing an update with us, and for letting us know that you were able to find the blind man after performing a power cycle of your Xbox console. I'm glad to hear that you've been able to find the blind man successfully
Hello there @ExaltedMiff & @iReVzKMX3_! Welcome to the forums
I'm sorry to hear that you're unable to equip the Watchtower. Please note that this is a settlement tree decoration, so you'll need to interact with the dragon statue by the settlement tree to use it.
If you're unable to change your settlement tree to the Watchtower design, can you please send us a video which shows the following:
- You have purchased the Watchtower settlement decoration from Norvid
- You're unable to select the Watchtower as an option when choosing a tree decoration
I would recommend uploading your video to a sharing platform, such as YouTube or Google Drive, as this will allow you to post a shareable link in this thread.
We can then pass this along to the development team for further investigation.
@SuPHaSuLLy - The development team are still investigating the issue wherein players are unable to interact with Rollo during "Old Wounds," which is why a fix wasn't included in TU 1.3.0. Please note that any compensation would be at the discretion of the Assassin's Creed: Valhalla team, and that the player support team is unable to influence this decision. If compensation is to be offered, this information will be shared via in-game notifications.
As soon as we have any updates to share with you from the investigation, we will let you know within this thread or within the News & Announcements forum.
@N0V4SP31 - Thank you for sending us that video showing the guard is stuck in the brothel! I've forwarded this to the development team so they can take a closer look. If we require any additional information, we will reach out within this thread.
The development team have confirmed that they will not be adding a "reset/restart quest" feature to the game:
Due to the structure of quests within the game, a "reset/restart quest" feature is not feasible at this stage of development. While some quests and world events allow you to walk away or reload your save in order to reset them, this is not the case for every instance within Valhalla. We strongly recommend regularly adding manual saves, especially before and after pivotal moments, to ensure you have backup states to revert to if needed.
I understand that this may not be the answer you were hoping for, and apologise for any disappointment caused. We will pass on your feedback to the dedicated teams.
Hello there @TheProjectCreed!

Hello there @Cole_2018! Welcome to the forums
I'm sorry to hear that you've encountered trouble in the "Green Children of Anglia." Thanks for taking the time to share your report with us. To help us to take a closer look at this, would you be able to send us a video which shows the following:
- You have the latest Title Update installed on your platform. You can view this information in the opening game menu in the bottom right-hand corner.
- You're unable to interact with the children to continue the world event.
I would recommend uploading this video to a sharing platform, such as YouTube or Google Drive, as this will allow you to post a shareable link within this thread. We can then pass this report along to the development team for further investigation.
I'm sorry to hear that you are having trouble accessing "The Legend of Beowulf" and/or "The Way of the Berserker." Thank you for continuing to share your reports with us within this thread, as well as what steps you have tried to trigger the quests again.
If you haven't already, please can you try the following workarounds? Several players have tried these steps and have been able to trigger the quests in-game after giving them a try:
- Can you please let us know if you have the Ubisoft Connect overlay enabled or disabled? If you have disabled it, please can you try enabling it again? Once it's been enabled, please access the overlay in-game via the main game menu to see if this triggers the quests to reappear in-game for you.
- If you play in online mode, please can you switch to offline mode to see if this triggers the quests to appear in-game for you.
@brosna1, @Repitect, @guest-YyV9xeOa & @Sad-Turtle - Would you be able to give these steps a try to see if these cause the quests to trigger back into the game for you? If not, please don't hesitate to update us within this thread so we can investigate further.
@Ruken88 - I'm glad to hear that this issue has been resolved for you following the release of TU 1.3.0! Thanks for updating us
@ImoonMonkys - I'm sorry to hear that this issue still occurs for you following the deployment of the fix in TU 1.3.0. Thank you for taking the time to capture and send us a video of the issue. I've now passed this along to the development team and reopened the investigation into this issue with "This Son of Jorvik." If we require any additional information from you, we will reach out to you within this thread.
