Mount & Blade 2 Bannerlord Dragon Banner Pieces quest bug is an issue that can completely lock you out of one of the most important quests in the game. Like a number of other quests in this game, the Dragon Banner Pieces quest in Bannerlord can become impossible to complete if you aren’t careful and prompt. So, in our Dragon Banner Pieces Quest Bug Solution in Mount & Blade 2 Bannerlord guide, we’ll show you how you can circumvent this issue and save yourself a lot of headaches.
How to Solve Bannerlord Dragon Banner Pieces Quest Bug?
To solve the bug with collecting all three Dragon Banner pieces in Mount & Blade 2 Bannerlord, you have to make sure you save often and complete the related quests as promptly as you can. Basically, the first part of the quest is to find the ten Nobles, and that part is arduous, but generally without problems. The next step is where it gets rough. You have to speak with Istiana and Arzagos and clear out their respective bandit hideouts. Make absolutely certain that you save your game before accepting each of these quests.
Also, speak only with one of these quest givers at a time, and clear out their bandit camp immediately upon accepting the mission. Otherwise, especially with Arzagos, the Raiding Party that the game randomly assigns the Banner Pieces to might wander off and get killed by AI. If that happens, and you don’t have a save to lean back on, you might as well start the game anew. Although, there have been some rumors that the quest auto-completes when you reach Clan Level 3, but we haven’t confirmed that.
For an extra layer of security, some have said that you can also raid the hideouts before starting the quest, so that actually beginning the quest respawns it. It might work, but, again, we haven’t had the chance to test it. In short, make sure that you save before (and maybe after) accepting each of the quests, and you should be fine. All that’s left to do is choose between allegiance to Istiana or Arzagos. For more info on that, check out our How to Create Kingdom in Mount & Blade 2 Bannerlord guide.
