After doing "snake in the grass" you have to talk to herodutus about the cult.
He never gives me the followup and doesn't take me to the cult secret chamber.

I am left without a main quest and no way to continue.

I have seen one other report of this issue and multiple on bugs with herodutus.

My last save was 8 ingame hours ago bevause I went to level up and do side quests before I realized what was happening.

Same here. I spent 12 hours doing side quests to level up. Would be nice to have this fixed ASAP. There is plenty of reports on this quest

I just regret spending money on early access, when you still have to wait for a fix, before you can continue again.

I have the same problem. I decided to go to an old save (lost 6 hours). I found the quest works if you do not visit Elpenor first - go to the Pythia first at her house. This gives you a “Wolf...” quest failed, but everything else works normally.

It’s a work around, but it might be faster than a patch. This seems to be a bug across all platforms, so hopefully a fix can be “quickly” found.

Lesson learned; Do NOT under any circumstances go exploring in this exploration game until you've done your quests as it will break it.

Having exact same issue, but no saves predating the glitch (also went off questing due to thinking it needs higher level to unlock). So have to start from scratch... 25hours and awesome gear = No thanks.
Please fix 😅

Just for the folks over at Ubisoft, I did it the same way and the bug still appeared:


I went to the Oracle first and talked with her, then killed Elpenor in his cave.

Herodotus does not even appear near the Delphi Oracle afterwards, though. Number under the "Odyssey"-filter under "Quests" is 0 just as well. So I guess this is a new iteration of the bug.

EDIT:

I found Herodotus with the help of another forum user. Either way, no new quest is triggered after talking to him and he still doesn't appear near the entrance with the snakes next to it.

I waited a year to play this game
I can't advance past serpents lair, can't trigger the pyramid after clue search.
I power cycled, uninstalled, redownload, even started a new game. Nope. Tech support says that development is aware.

THIS GAME HAS BEEN OUT MORE THAN A YEAR

I am so disappointed. This has been my favorite series for an entire decade.

Hey Stoltenport,

This should be resolved with a New-Game playthrough.

Are you able to provide any videos of this in-game?

Getting info from cultists, there are only two! Which leaves bar halfway. Quest at dead end & can’t continue. Basic game, Xbox one. This bug was originally posted in 2018! It is 2020 now. Just shorten the bar!! And I hope your code is in modules and not huge chunks. Get a team of competent coders fixing these cult bugs. Taking so long is giving your company a bad name. Love this game but doubt if I will buy another if you can’t fix bugs. I am retired with doctorates in comp science, hw & sw engineering. Very disappointed you can’t fix bugs in a timely manner, inexcusable.
