Just discovered the same problem here - at end game and just finishing off the last few Cultists. PS4 1.0.5. Grateful for an update. Seems to have been a known bug for a while.

I didn't see this thread before I posted a thread of my own. Have the same issue. Quest just became available, didn't spend the drachmae to skip the training, don't know what I might have done prior to this mission becoming available apart from exploring the world. This is the second bugged quest I've encountered (the prince of persia quest is also broken for me)

Nice to see the devs taking action on fixing bugged quests if this was truly brought to their attention a week ago. /s

screw it, I'm sick and tired of waiting for Ubisoft to respond/update us all on this problem. I'm skipping the training, and I hope it doesn't screw me over for the trophy related to those islands.

edit: so the trophy popped after completing the mission after that, thank god...

Same problem here On PC version 1.0.6

I guess people will have to wait for the next patch? I lost my patience, and just skipped those missions by paying the drachmae. Thankfully it didn't hinder the related trophy for doing 20 missions on those sets of islands as it unlocked after the following mission.

I'm a bit disappointed that the latest patch didn't have a fix for this. My girlfriend is using the same PS4 and the same disc and I am and she didn't have any trouble getting the Roxana quest. I'm not sure what I did wrong but I hope the developers are still working on it.

the bug is likely based on doing something out of order that causes the quest to break. the game doesn't seem to like it when you explore everything beforehand, and doing that has broken a handful of quests (I explored the entire world, and levelled up to 50 before I even moved onto chapter 2 of the story, for example).

the PS4 and disc have nothing to do with it.

Same here, PC, ver. 1.06. I think the issue is that when I talked to Drakios, I wasn't paying attention, and selected to fight, instead of the option to leave. Than he mentions that I should train first with Roxana or pay to skip. I think the glitch is that even though I haven't payed, because I chose the option to fight, rather than immediately leave (and train with Roxana) the game thinks I chose to skip and Roxana is no longer interactible.

Unfortunately it's not that straightforward, if you talk to him and accept the quest [I'll take part in the Battle], and then immediately leave [I'm not ready to battle yet] (instead of I'm ready to battle and then lying about training... which doesn't work), the quest isn't added to your log and you have to talk to him again THEN leave, but even if you do that the quest is bugged and the marker for Roxana doesn't appear.
I'm thinking since they mention the cult, the questline leads me to someone I've already killed because at this point in the game I had never visited either island...

Based on the dialogue that I got upon finding Roxana for the first time ("Leave me, champion"), I assumed that it was because I killed my way to the top mercenary spot well before I was supposed to, progression wise. Only level 44 when I did it, and upon actually killing the top guy, and the revelations that follow, I realized I skipped a few steps by doing that on my own.

11-07-2018, 07:02 PM
I got the same problem(ps4).

I havent defeated the top mercenairy yet because i realized he was a sage cultist (i like to do things in order).

Still she says “leave me champion” with some cowering thugs around her that do nothing and are stuck as well.

I the quest marker is only at the quest giver where i can pay to skip, but it seems like fun to fight with her.

The patch notes say something about a fix for the 'Sparring with Roxana' quest, but no luck here... She still says 'Leave me champion'.
Will there be a fix so that we can still play the missions with Roxana without starting a complete new game? Just be honest so we know what to do and don't wait till we're old, grumpy persons...

I was really hoping the 1.06 patch fixed this, but nope, she still goes "Leave me, Champion."
Like, apparently this is a "known issue" but still not resolved.

ALSO
I could have sworn the patchnotes said something about fixing it, but reading through the 1.06 patchnotes again, it no longer mentions Roxana at all.

Same here. When I saw in the patch notes "Roxana" I immediately fired up the game, went to her house only to be greeted with the ol' "Leave me champion" shtick.

I just got to both islands were the quest happens today.

Didnt know about the bug, got to hydre, did stuff there, then went to melos, were i discovered the quest giver. Got the quest, didnt pay so i could do the roxana quest, went to hydre and i couldnt find her. Thats when i went to the internet today and discovered it was a bug. I found her, but, as everyone here, just got the "you are all too weak" when you get near her house, and then the "leave me alone champion" when you talk with her.

As I had a load before visiting this two islands and discovering them on the map from 2 hours ago, I decided to load the save and see if I could trigger the quest correctly by inversing the order. So I discovered Melos first, went directly to the quest giver without doing anything else, got the quest, but again the marker only appeared in his head. Even then I went to hydre to discover it, as maybe there was a chance the marker appeared when I got there. NOPE, same problem as before.

Im trying to beat this 100% so im not touching the game until this is fixed. I saw the patch notes for the latest update some minutes ago and its say it was fixed, but that clealry didnt happen.

By the way, if this is helpful, I still need to discover Athens and leave Herodote in Atica, so he still in my ship (im trying to go in the order of the levels of the islands when you start a new game, and atica had a higher level than Melos and Hydra). So even following the game's level order, the quest is bugged. What is triggering the bug, I dont know, but you guys really need to fix it. If its the moving from and island to the other what gives problems, just move Roxana to a camp in Melos near the quest giver or something, becuase I really want to have the option to romance and recruit her before continuing with the story.

Also working on a 100% run, but up to chapter 5 and just not visiting those islands for now.
My advice, go along with the main quest for now and leave those islands unexplored for now.

Really hoping for a fix for this.

ALSO
I could have sworn the patchnotes said something about fixing it, but reading through the 1.06 patchnotes again, it no longer mentions Roxana at all.

There has been several mentions of the quest...
10/11/2018 (First Patch After Launch) Patch 1.0.3 under Audio fix, "Fixed an issue during the ""Sparring with Roxana"" quest with echoing dialogue."
11/15/2018 (Fifth Patch After Launch) Patch 1.0.7 under Quest fix, Sparring with Roxana is apart of a 9 item list which the patch said to have, "Addressed various issues that prevented the following quests from completing."

It is important to note that; it has been reported that various quest on that list have not been fixed as of that patch... One of note being the quest Home Sweet Home. As well as, one of the reasons why Patch 1.0.3, is not considered the first patch after launch is due to the potentiality of a day one patch, and the two day early access associated with pre-orders.

PC 1.0.7 problem still exists.

Visited Melos and took the quest. Didn't pay to Drakios. Went to Hydra and found Roxana but the cut scene does not trigger and she always says: "Leave me, Champion."

Remarkable video:
Roxana cut-scene works and she is marked as a quest

I myself am having the same problem. 100 hours in cause i just skipped past and started exploring elsewhere and continued the main story. I came across this bug about 40 hours in (several weeks ago) and saw muktiple threads and figured that it was going to be taken care of. I still can not continue the quest without just having to pay my way in which i do not wish to do. Im glad to see in not the only one with this problem cause i cannot go back to the previous save before meeting Roxana because i am too far already. When is this bug going to be addressed?

Bugged for me as well... was on the island before, no missions at all, just some collectibles, then got to Drakios, started the quest and then got back to Hydrea. Searched the maked area described here:
https://guides.gamepressure.com/assassins-creed-odyssey/guide.asp?ID=46627 riding the horse and nothing shown up... Just plain volcanic land and metal lying around...

1.1.1 is shown at the main screen. As I know Ubisoft it even wouldn't allow me to run games of a lower patchlevel, so I'd guess it's always the recent version...

I'll leave this mission out for now.
Hope It'll get back soon. Game as box version preordered + DLC purchased directly in Uplay afterwards. I'm pretty confident the 86€ I paid so far refinances the salary of the persons fixing this bug.

Part of the problem is that I reported this almost a month ago, every four days, your system says since it hasn't heard from me it is closing the ticket. That's ridiculous. Tickets should not close unless a patch or some other fix has been issued. This quite frankly smacks of some manager or director telling people to close all tickets every four days so that they can meet their metric of "all tickets in my department closed in less than 5 days". That quite frankly is ridiculous, and I would LOVE to cost that turd their bonus. So now EVERYDAY, I am going to log in to complain it still isn't fixed so that it can't be closed...until it is actually fixed. If they want their bonus, I guess it's going to be time to suck it up and apply some resources to fixing this.
