Also found one in Malis, under a small bridge directly south of the letter R in Xerxes in the Bay of Xerxes text on the map.

2, 3 and 4 on your map around the gate I was able to collect, just as a heads up.

South of "R" in Xerxes, under a bridge.

I was NOT unable to collect, however my wife WAS able to (after a looong time of trying.)

We both play on XB1X (separate consoles)

I'm only missing those exact three as well.

On the new patch 2 of those 3 ores were fixed.
This one is still unobtainable:

* In Arkadia in the creek at base of Fort of Arkas, cannot dive, or be prompted to loot.

I thinks b.s. that we are paying for something that is not working. Iíve been playing A.C. Since the first and non have had no where near the issues odessy has. Great game but why is the option to buy ore locations via helix credits there when you canít get them all and they know about the issue. Sorry all. Just venting.

I agree with Mannumber4 we spent real cash to get this map and we can't even collect all of them and this problem has been going on for months now how long does it take for you guys to fix these problems??? It can't take that long and maybe we all should get free helix credits for all the trouble and headaches this has caused all of us

Hey guys,

We are aware that some of the Orichalcum fragments are not obtainable.

The dev team are working on a fix for the issue. When we have further information, we will update you.

Cheers,

Same issues on PC. Also while Orichalcum fragments are obviously the most important ones to resolve, there are quite a few underwater locations that are not deep enough for diving. You could literally be standing on a piece of loot, but if it's in some puddle, you're not allowed to pick it up. They have to change this to allow us to pick up loot in proximity without having to submerge the character. Water level should not block loot proximity detection.

We've been looking into reports of this. It's really helpful if we get specific locations or map screenshots to assist us with this though :)

Just to report it. I am also unable to pick up the Ore at the Fort of Arkas. The other locations worked fine for me after the update.

I just did. If i contact customer care they will jump me through the same hoops AS ALWAYS with an apology and them informing me they are sending it to the devs... So here ubi i reported with a pic and i did not have to do all the things you all always tell me to do and i done NUMEROUS times

Guys I found a solution! It is definitely not normal that you can't dive and the devs have to fix it but I found a temporary solution to get the Orichalcum piece!

You have to swim to the Spot where I am in the following screenshots. If you are there you just have to dive in!
The last Screenshot shows the place of the Orichalcum. As you can see it is not there which proves that I looted it :-)

Hi, I confirm this works for me. Great find Rico1095! Still, the dive is bugged. 😉

Thanks Rico1095 (https://forums.ubi.com/member.php/1595292-Rico1095?communityUsers=1&f=27), That worked. I've collected everything except the one in Attika under the bridge.

https://qf05ea.db.files.1drv.com/y4mOaDoMagkqkbnsu1pewet6ETLcRl8iRFI3G-7n5onsdJWvY5rR86uWZVYoUnLKEw1H8AwTmB9ZvvkZao5rvozO O7oYvKea5Nl50G_MGTIoM62kg4nI1IggrgzVzVhYXPlY873aSM En3iwe4QfM85f0R3tqiVaurolF38s-u1jWbBCgBYu56mtcuHQhyNxTeUla-42_LaAaX8_CPc4gZXXrQ?width=2560&height=1440&cropmode=none

I'm so close, yet so far away... I hope this gets fixed soon.

While we're all grateful to Rico, I hope it is clear that his workaround helps with one of the locations, not all.

The one under the bridge in Attika is still unobtainable.

Yup. The one in Attika still bugs (pun intended) me as well. And as a completionist (well, at least in AC i am) who is currently clearing out the map with not much else left, this is really annoying me. Especialy since some of those seem to be an easy fix - just move the damn thing !

Big patch is out and the Orichalcum rock is still under the bridge in Attika. Come on Ubisoft, moving an object by 2 meters in one direction is not that hard.

Thanks for the update! The ACOD team are still looking into this specific location. We appreciate the help reporting this!

Omg noooo, just while i was trying in vain to loot the ore in that f***** not deep enough to dive water place, i thanked god when i saw your message, with pictures...that are DELETED, NOW :mad: :'(

And damn, with the photo mode camera, i can actually see where the ore is precisely located...

I have collected every single ORICHALCUM FRAGMENT on the entire Assassin's Creed Odyssey Map . . .EXCEPT the one at the bottom of the creek/pond at the base of FORT OF ARKAS as mentioned by JAMESLOGAN491 in a post back in November 2018. As posted while swimming in the water it is not possible to DIVE anywhere over the Fragment. If you SELECT the fragment on the map it is highlighted . . BUT as soon as you swim OVER the fragment the highlighting automagically turns off. I have tried diving off the cliffs from every angle on both sides of the pond and no matter what you can not get that fragment. Since there is no special TROPHY for collecting every single fragment I am not too concerned . . "BUT HE TAXES ME!" to quote Kahn Noonien Singh in Star Trek II . . . . . (yes I am that old!!)

02-25-2019, 03:57 AM
By the way JAMESLOGAN491 post was back in 2017 . . Also the pictures posted buy another member showing the correct location of the fragment are no longer available so I will go back and keep at it from other spots in hopes of snagging the very last piece on my map!!!

Could you install the update that was released today and try again as this included the following fix:

. Addressed an issue preventing players from looting Orichalcum fragments in several areas.

Please confirm if this resolves your issue.

Having the same issue collecting the orichalcum ore. Tried from various angles and no icon to collect it appears. As for any updates. I checked and it says that it is the current edition.
