There seems to be a bug where the monk in Zhu Xi is unable to interact with relics. In the screenshot for example, I am unable to put my relic in my pagoda.
Beasty also encountered this bug here:
How should I workaround this bug? And is there any way to avoid it? I tried pressing every action possible including ‘S’, ‘X’, or attacking an enemy building but am unable to fix it.
Shaolin monks sometimes can’t pick relics, I had that bug and had to sent a new monk to pick it. The other monks that were bugged couldn’t pick any other relic.
Thanks for the response. In my experience the monks are unable to interact with relics at all when the issue occurs. I have encountered both monks being unable to pick up relics and monks being unable to place the relic anywhere.
For example, here is a video where beasty has to delete his (bugged) monk holding the relic and get another one to place the relic into the pagoda:
If it helps at all, I also have a savegame where the issue occurs and the screenshot in my first post was taken.
I am having this bug too. Worst bug I have ever encountered in terms of it affecting my gameplay, and I have been playing AoE4 since release. I thought for sure with such a game-breaking bug that it would be fixed in patch 9.1.370 as #1 priority. I was amazed that it wasn’t mentioned. I had a game today on the new patch and can confirm it’s still an issue.
I had this one relic I couldn’t garrison inside the Shaolin Monastery. I wasted a lot of time in-game wondering what I am going to do as it slows down my whole army when I summon all idle military as the monk counts as military and is holding a relic, which slows everything down, without lots of extra micro.
I decided to move the bugged Shaolin Monk to one of the sacred sites near my team mate’s base so I could capture the site, and also so the monk could hopefully die and drop the relic so my teammate could then pick it up - making the best of a terrible situation. He said that even though the relic dropped to the ground - he wasn’t able to pick it up (playing as Japanese).
Please fix this as I cannot trust the Shaolin Monastery and can’t build it in competitive gameplay because of this issue.
The issue seems to happen whenever the monk has been in combat previously. I have not seen this issue yet since the new patch but have not been playing as much. Will post once I have observed this issue again.
I had a similar problem. After destroying the enemy’s monastery with 3 relics inside, I couldn’t pick up the relics with the Shaolin monks. I was able to collect them with normal monks.
