It’s time to celebrate Ostara Festival or get ready for Easter, Vikings, and the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Let’s Get Festive side-quest will help you do just that if it wasn’t for a new bug or glitch that most likely will stop some of you from starting these celebrations properly.
The good thing is that the Let’s Get Festive bug/glitch won’t stop you from getting all the game’s achievements and trophies (in case you still have some), but the bad thing is that you won’t be able to decorate Ravensthorpe unless the devs address this.
Preferably before this year’s Christmas, not like the Blood And Bonds Halfdan glitch that still needs a fix, almost 5 months after the game’s release.
Also, it is worth mentioning that the AC Valhalla Let’s Get Festive glitch or bug may not affect everyone, but I encountered it and currently, there is no workaround for this one.
Regardless, we can still cover this Ostara side-quest and I can still tell you how to complete it, or how to decorate Ravensthorpe in case you don’t face this new error.
How to Start Let’s Get Festive In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
So, in order to start this quest, you’ll first have to talk to Norvid.
He is the friendly fellow in my image below and you will find him on the eastern side of Ravensthorpe, where your Vikings are ready to celebrate the Ostara Festival.
Obviously, your first goal is to introduce yourself, and then Norvid will ask you to decorate Ravensthorpe. Additionally, he’ll also give you 20 Festival Tokens.
Make sure you add these to the Festival Tokens you already have, then buy some Settlement Comestics from the Festival Shop; which is the same shop that Norvid runs.
Great then! So now it’s time to decorate Ravensthorpe, and this is done by placing 5 decorations in specific locations.
How to Decorate Ravensthorpe For AC Valhalla Ostara Festival
As mentioned above, the Let’s Get Festive quest in AC Valhalla is currently bugged for some players (including me); however, below I’ll show you all the decorations locations, or spots.
Just follow the exact same order and interact with the platforms, then place an Ostara Festival decoration you have purchased from Norvid. It’s not important which one you pick.
Ostara Festival Decoration Location 1 – In Front Of Norvid’s Shop
The first location is the easiest.
Simply cross the path in front of Norvid’s Shop and you should be able to see the platform between two wooden poles.
Ostara Festival Decoration Location 2 – Behind Alwin’s House
The second decoration spot is behind Alwin’s house.
The said house can be seen in the image above. Go around it (right side) and you’ll find it next to a tree.
Ostara Festival Decoration Location 3 – By The Big Tree In The Festival Area
The third location is also pretty easy to find.
Look for it next to the big tree where the Ostara Festival is taking place.
Ostara Festival Decoration Location 4 – The Large Tree In Front Of Eivor’s Longhouse
The next spot you can decorate is by the large tree close to the path leading to Eivor’s Longhouse.
This tree is quite hard to miss.
Simply replace the old decoration or place a new one by interacting with the platform.
Ostara Festival Decoration Location 5 – By The Docks
Finally, head to the docks and look for another dragonhead platform that allows you to decorate the village.
Once you do that, the Let’s Get Festive Ostara Festival quest ends, and you can return to Norvid and let him know you’re ready to party!
In exchange, you’ll receive 50 Festival Tokens and 800 XP.
AC Valhalla Let’s Get Festive Bug Possible Fix
The idea behind the glitch or bug that’s affecting this specific quest is quite simple and there is also a fix you can try. It did not work for me, and below I’ll explain why.
The Ostara Festival introduces three new spots you can decorate. The first three mentioned above, but the same content fails to render the old spots.
Or simply put, if you fully decorated Ravensthorpe for the corresponding achievement/trophy then you won’t be able to replace the old decorations.
Since the new content adds 3 new locations but you need 5, two of them must come from the old spots. Which as said will not render.
If by any chance you did not place all decorations for the achievement/trophy, then you can try creating a manual save then reloading the game. Hopefully, the game will render the dragon platforms you have to interact with and you will be able to complete the quest.
Assuming it doesn’t work, then, as most players you’ll have to wait for a bug fix from Ubisoft. So, why not spend your time trying to get the most points in the Twirling Targets Archery Contest; or finding all firepits you need to set on fire? Getting all Ostara Baskets of Eggs should also keep you busy until the update is released this week.
