On top of that, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Grieving Man is a character you may not be able to interact with because the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Banshee World Event features a possible bug.
However, the good thing is that there is a workaround for the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Banshee bug, but there is a small requirement as you are about to see in the following guide.
So let’s deal with The Banshee mystery and see if we can fix the bug that Ubisoft’s QC team missed, again.
Where To Find The Grieving Man In AC Valhalla
Once again, let’s start with the location of the Grieving Man in AC Valhalla.
As you can see on my map he is located on the southern side of Essexe, just east of Wulfaswic.
Ride to the location marked on the map and you’ll find the Grieving Man inside a tower tormented by the sounds that haunt him.
How To Help The Grieving Man
Now, assuming The Banshee is not bugged for you, talk to the NPC (you’ll be able to interact with him), and although he won’t answer; you’ll be able to hear him talking to his wife.
And his wife happens to be dead but she continues to haunt him.
Why is that?
Because our innocent Grieving Man is not as innocent as he seems. Or simply put he killed her according to the Mad Ramblings Note.
But first, let’s stop the banshee.
While standing close to the man, look up and pull out your bow.
Shoot the wooden planks on the window pictured below.
The wind going through the planks creates the sound the Grieving Man is complaining about.
Once you destroy the planks, our quest giver will be really upset because he can’t hear his wife anymore, so he’ll attack you.
You can’t avoid this fight so dispatch him quickly.
From his corpse, you’ll get the Mad Ramblings Note which basically incriminates him. Read it and you’ll find out that he killed her wife.
Now, The Banshee World Event ends.
But what happens if you can’t talk to the Grieving Man?
Possible Banshee Quest Bug
If you can’t interact with the Grieving Man, or you can’t talk to him, the bug fix is really simple.
Complete all other World Events in Essexe.
I encountered this bug as well, and this fix worked for me.
If you pay attention to the map above you can see that The Banshee world event is the last one I had to complete in Essexe.
Hopefully, this works for you too.
That’s how you complete the mystery and finish the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Banshee world event.
