In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (ACV) you may encounter what seems like a bug where you can’t speak to Randvi anymore. There are some seemingly bugged objectives in the game that only say Speak to Randvi or Speak to Randvi about Hordafylke, but she doesn’t have any quest dialogues for you. What you are experiencing is probably not a bug at all, just some confusing game design.
How to fix Speak to Randvi not working Bug:
When you get objective ‘Speak to Randvi’ or ‘Talk with Randvi’ and she doesn’t have any quest dialogues, it means you must interact with the Alliance Map and pledge to a region. It’s just a poorly worded objective and bad game design. Had the developers called the objective “Pledge to region at Alliance Map” it would have prevented a lot of confusion. Scroll over the map and check if you can pledge to any region. Do so and the next objective should trigger and you can continue the story normally. Also make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom of the Alliance Map (south of England). There are 2 secret regions there: Vinland & Norway. You might need to pledge to those to advance. This can be very confusing because for all of the game you pledge to regions in England but during 2 missions you suddenly have to pledge to Norway and America/Vinland (which to make things worse, some Ubisoft developer thought are south of England on the world map). So just poor game design, not a bug. Case closed.
There are two points in the game where this is most confusing and can seem like ‘Speak to Randvi’ is bugged, but it’s not:
- After the Wincestre Story Arc, a quest called “Where Legends Are Born” will start. Here you talk to Sigurd and he wants to go back to Norway with you. Sigurd asks you to “Speak to Randvi about Hordafylke“. The quest marker will be on Randvi but talking to her does nothing. Talking to Sigurd at the docks won’t let you leave for Norway either. The fix is to look at the Alliance Map and scroll south of England to pledge to Norway, which is a bit hidden.
- On the quest called “In a Strange Land“, Hytham will tell you to speak to Randvi to leave for Vinland (America) and hunt down someone called Gorm. Same issue here, talking to Randvi doesn’t do anything. Instead, you must pledge to Vinland which is south of England on the Alliance Map. After this the quest will continue.
If this doesn’t solve your problem, try fast traveling to another map (Norway or Asgard) or change gender or reload a previous save game.
