So there is a quest called Perikles's Symposium. You are in this house and you cant leave, there should be a character named herodotos that you have to speak with. But he aint there and now i cant move on, its main quest. I saw someone else posted this same problem on reddit.

Could you link to the reddit thread? Do you have any further information that might help us to reproduce this issue?

I opened a case for this as I cannot progress in the game any further.
07094441

Re-loaded a save game to the fast travel spot in town right before entering, and its the same result. no Herodotos inside to speak to and none of the other characters respond in conversation.

Have the same problem, did discover that Herodotos lies dead at the scene where you meet Perikles for the first time for some reason, so could that be what's bugging out?

Same quest, but for some reason unknown to even Christ (and I've tried the quest LITERALLY 15 times) the olive oil in the kitchen is not able to be picked up at any point. So I can't complete the support quest "Love and Oil" and cannot continue the main quest because of olive oil.

I have the same sorta problem, same quest, same place but pheobe just drops dead after talking to her and then after completing the quest you need to speak to her to get back out but obviously you canít have a conversation with a dead corpse! Replayed hours of gameplay to reload it but still the same problem.

Thank you for the continued reports.

As mentioned by Gabbin, is anyone able to provide a video example of this? So for instance showing you unable to interact or the NPCs dead?

I had the same thing happen to me during that quest,I thought I did something wrong at first.Then when I got to this mission and all of this started happening to me,I thought maybe it was because I didnít sail my ship which he was still on back to where perikles symposium was and Restart all over.Now I canít even load any save before that quest and Iím just stuck in the room running with no one to talk to and canít leave.

Same issue on my end, only mine is slightly ahead. Im stuck on the Oil and love quest, with no objective marker (quest tracked) i managed to find the door which you can interact with, and im told to grab some olive oil. I get the oil, and i find out a possible clue about Alexios's mother, but that's it. Still stuck in Perikle's house.

I got the same issue. Herodotos is not at where he is supposed to be. I cant talk to him and move on. I am stuck in the house.

Same issue as everyone else here too. I go inside Perikles's house, no Herodotus to be found, so in essence I am stuck in there.
If it helps, as one other user mentioned, first time I met with Perikles, Herodotus kept dropping dead on me, not sure if that has anything to do with his lack of appearance later on.

I'm playing on PS4, current update 1.0.2

When I finished the quest "Snake in the Grass" and killed Elpenor , no new quest appeared and when I filter quests for "Odyssey", the number "0" is displayed on the left hand side under the fitler, where as other filters have numbers for the active quests.


A walkthrough from IGN says:

After completing Snake in the Grass, head back to the Sanctuary of Delphi. Herodotos is waiting behind the temple in front of two columns that look like they have snakes coiled around them.

But the guy is not standing at the two columns. I would hate to load a save game before the Snake in the Grass mission, because that would cost me quite some coins and lower my level from 18 to 14.

Herodotus not being in Perikles's house bug still present in 1.0.3.

Also randomly getting "quest completed" while in there, but can't get out of the house anyway.

Probably it has to do with Herodotus "dying" after you first hear Perikles speak at the Pnyx ("Welcome to Athens" quest I think).
I replayed it with patch 1.0.3 and again, Herodotus died (for no reason) and I suspect he stays dead for the rest of the game. Now that I come to think of it, after that I never saw Barnabas on my ship again.

@Ubi support/devs, I think you should look into what causes major NPCs to die in that particular quest, it sure feels like some of them just drop dead for whatever reason and then the game can't find them again, hence breaking the rest of the main story.

The fact that it happens on all platforms most likely confirms there is something wrong behind the game logic at that particular quest rather than something that's platform specific
(e.g. dated drivers or some users playing with trainers -all of these would be PC-specific).

Hope this helps a bit...

Phoibe still dies in Perikles Symposium.

Thanks for keeping us updated everyone, I can confirm this was not included in a 1.03 patch as we are still looking into the issue

Are you able to make a support ticket via https://support.ubi.com/ with a copy of your save file attached to help with the investigation?

Save files can be found at the following locations: https://support.ubi.com/en-GB/faqs/000037092/Save-game-locations-for-Assassin-s-Creed-Odyssey-ACOD/

Once you've done this, can you send me the ticket number here so I can pass these over ASAP!

Cheers :D

In the quest Perikles Symposium, Phoibe falls to the floor dead after I change my clothes. I am then stuck in the house after i talk to perikles, and cannot proceed any further in the game. I have tried starting over, loading from multiple save points and nothing works. How could ubisoft put out such a buggy product?
