Assassin’s Creed Valhalla To Serve the Light quest has a bug during the Follow Hytham step where Hytham won’t start paddling the boat. You climb onto the boat with him, but he refuses to move, blocking your progress. Since this is quest is necessary to proceed, you might be wondering how to fix the glitch with Hytham in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. That’s exactly what we’ll show you in our Follow Hytham Bug Solution – To Serve the Light – AC Valhalla guide.
Hytham Won’t Start Paddling Boat Bug Solution in AC Valhalla Serve The Light Quest
If you encounter the bug where Hytham won’t start paddling the boat in the Serve the Light quest in AC Valhalla, all you have to do is jump out of the boat and swim back ashore. Don’t go directly behind him, but a little bit to the side, too. In our case, that snapped him back to attention and he rowed away. Of course, that meant that we had to swim behind him in a panic, but luckily, he only goes a little bit to the left; you’ll be fine.
We’re not entirely sure what triggers this bug. The quest tells you to follow Hytham, and at one point, you come to the waterline and he climbs into the boat. So, naturally, you assume that you have to do the same. What happened to us is that the pole he uses to paddle just glitched out of his hands, and he refused to move. The only way that we got him to budge was, again, to jump off the boat and swim back to shore, a little bit to the side.
The rest of the Serve the Light quest in AC Valhalla is really easy. It’s almost literally a walk in the park. Just follow Hytham and listen to what he has to tell you. I’m not gonna share anything from it to avoid any spoilers. You should see it all for yourself.
