  • 2 years and still no fix...

    I couldn't get the wolf gear because the chest Can't be opened and now when doing the ofiers quest there's no diagram. Wtf is wrong with you I've waited so long and today when I finally got the dlc I can't even play it. Apparently if you start new game + it gets fixed but you know how long it took me to complete the main story? 80 hours... And another 20 to finish most sidequests. I'm not planning on playing this game again for at least another year because I played it in the first place just for the story and now that I know it I don't wanna play it again until I forget it. Please fix your shit

    They've tried to fix it and have stated many times that it is literally impossible to fix. They simply cannot fix it.

      Then why do they still have it on the stores? If it's broken and they can't fix it, they should remove it

        I finally got the scavenger hunt wolf gear DLC two days ago and immediately collected all the diagrams in Velen and Skellige, just to find out that I couldn't even get the base gear diagrams...

        Can't the developers just give the notes or whatever to do the whole portal at the tower quest to some random merchant or whatever, which you can buy once you start the DLC? Or better yet just give the base diagrams to some merchants that are scattered around?

        I'm so disappointed in this bug, I was looking forward to the gear for so long.

            I simply do not know what anyone is talking about I never needed to open a chest to examine the portal when I entered the tower I used my Witcher senses and examined the portal straight away because it was red. I had to make my way back up to the tower again just to loot everything.

              Heres an idea: why doesnt CDPR just upload the base wolf gear to anyone who is affected by the bug. I can bet for most witcher fans like myself, the satisfaction that comes from questing and loot hunting is a major part of why i enjoy witcher 3 soo much. Its the reason why I am on my 3rd play thru of the game now. CDPR: find a way to upload the base set into the game (like automatically in the stash, inventory, or to a specific NPC) and let the fans continue to quest for the gear upgrades!

              This is really killing the vibe for me. Just saying. To give up on this issue is entirely unacceptable.

              Do it for the fans!!

                It's possible to install a letter of apology but not a workaround for the problem? What about a second box that is working or a giving us the basic schemes in another way (trading, etc.)?

                Could at least any CDPR member/mod answer here?

                  Same issue, chest isn't accessible neither are the crystals. Have noticed if I reload or come back(for a few times trying to slide my way) the body with the letter and sword respawn; I have 5 'pang of conscience' swords along with the apology letter... gotta say that's rather ironic...

                  The fact that it's the very first set is unfortunate.

                    Will this get some love? I'm playing on PS4 and can't open the chest...

                      It's probably not going to be fixed at this point (it happened in one of my play-throughs last fall). IIRC they tried to patch this several times when they were still actively bug-fixing. There hasn't been an update in a long time so I think the ship has sailed unfortunately.

                        And why now CDP don't make a new free DLC with new locations for collect the wolf set and other bugged materials??????

                          I just picked up both dlcs after finishing my new game+ and the first thing I do is Ofier's Distant Shores and encounter this bug. Not really making me want to continue on when the VERY FIRST QUEST IS BROKEN. I see no sense in reporting it through the proper channels, as it seems clear they know it's a problem. I'm not interested in starting a dlc special file, I just spent hundreds of hours playing through the game twice to get to this dlc. I only spent 12.50$ for both DLCs so I gues that helps a bit but this is still very disappointing. Remove the quest, patch in the item, put a warning on the game store, do something so every new player doesn't have to encounter this BS!

                            It's very common for such issues to arise when a playthrough was begun in one version, then updated through multiple versions over time. If that's not the case, then it may simply be a set of variables in your playthrough. You can always play the expansion as a standalone adventure by launching it directly from the main menu.

                            Such problems are a nuisance with all large RPGs. Though, most of the time, each issue is so rare that most players will never experience them. I admit freely that "cannot open XYZ chest" pops up quite a bit more often than some bugs, but it affects only a small minorty of players. (And yes, thousands and thousands of players is still a very small fraction.) That's the issue -- I don't think the chest issues can ever be reliably recreated. The bug is seemingly buried in the code somewhere, and despite several years of "fixing" it...it keeps coming back. It's like trying to strangle water.

                            Best bet if you encounter it is to reload to a point before starting the quest, try to empty out your inventory as much as possible (stash or sell), then begin the quest again. If it won't respond, save / reload a whole bunch of times. If that won't work, run away, transition between inside / outside locations (where Geralt auto-transitions between a walk / jog), then run back to the chest and try to activate it again.

                            If all else fails, starting the quest as a standalone from the main menu is probably the best bet.
                            People always ask me, "What's in the box?" I get the question a lot. "Come on -- what's in the box!?" I won't tell them...but I'll tell you. Go on.
                            You can see what's IN THE BOX!!!

                              Just brought the expansion and found out its bugged for two years, without a fix and it's still being sold. Stops me from buying any other games from cdpr, if this is how they treat people.
