I don't know if Ubisoft is pushing it or it's just a fluke. That new Yule quest where you're supposed to find the stolen barrel and bring it back ("The Case of the missing Ale").. I can't even begin to express how stupid is the design. First-up, they drop the barrel in some hut in Utbech. As if the swamp wasn't enough, you're supposed to find a bot; else, you can't carry it across the river. If you start.. like I did.. and travel all the way back and swim to the other shore to bring a boat.. the barrel resets. It will go back in the house. If you happen to walk across puddles that are a bit deep, Eivor drops the barrel in the middle of the puddle and starts swimming. Barrel never resets, you have to reload. Fine, I reload. Once reloaded, I'm drunk and screen starts going psychedelic. W T F ?.........
Then I've already finished that quest where you're supposed to burn some paper roll so Mercenaries stop hunting you. Can someone tell me why the fuck there's a shitload of them spawning during this mission.. and why do I get Revenge Notes when killing them?
Then if something happens during the quest and you die or whatever, the quest icon moves somewhere far to the left-hand side of Ravensthorpe on the map. On-screen distance is shown as 3000+ meters. Then as soon as you move with the boat and turn right on that river, Ake spawns out of thin air on the river bank T_T.. Luckily, quest ends fast and you're back to the ole chores.
I swear, I'm going to murder someone T_T.. The idiocy in the design is astounding. "Exclusive quest" my ass. Pompous words for shitty work.
