Okay, I already posted this int he bugs area, but I was wondering if anyone here could help me out.

 

So I've been doing the Icestorm Island quests and things were going fine- or so I thought. I managed to get up to the quest where Snoutlout is asking about the Northern Lights- after completing this quest (which definitely was NOT the last one given that I'd only started playing and there's supposed to be like 30 of them) I was unable to find any other mission markers. I waited a few days to see if this was just a lagging thing, but after nearly 4 days of absolutely nothing, I went on youtube to watch a playthrough of Ice Island to see if I was missing something.

 

So, this was how I discovered that one of the quests I did with Hiccup is glitched, which means he won't give me any more. Since I did Snoutlout and Astrids while waiting for Hiccup they won't give me anymore either.

 

Anyways. After giving Hiccup all the pieces to the map he asks you to check out some footprints in the snow up ont he mountain- which I did. HOWEVER, after investigating them your supposed to follow them up the mountain and into a cave where your chased by Speed Stingers- this never happened for me. I checked out the footsteps in the snow and that was it, he didn't aske me to do anything else- I don't remember if I got points/exp for it or not, but there were no speed stingers in the cave and nothing else for me to do. I logged out and logged back in, and ever since the footprints in the snow have been gone and I'm not offered any other missions. I haven't even gotten to go into the ice caves yet- any idea how to fix this?

Same Problem for Me

I wish I knew the answer to this one. I have the exact same problem. I have also been struggling to figure out the Strength Smoothies quest, where Snotlout asks you to collect snow from Icestorm. No quest arrow, no obvious snowpiles, although I've flown and run on foot all over and around that island with no success whatsoever. This game is extremely glitchy, and I find myself emailing tech support constantly, it's extremely frustrating. I'm seriously considering dropping my subscription. I spend most of my time farming, decorating my farms, and fishing. I've currently only got access to 3 quests, all 3 of which I'm unable to move forward with because of tech problems. I should have a ton of quests left on Icestorm, but I'm stuck with the glitched footprint thing and the inability to collect snow on the smoothie quest. I hope someone can help answer, it would be fabulous to be spared yet another email to tech support, since it's usually a good 4-6 weeks before you can expect help from programmers when necessary.

Try changing devices, just had luck today, different glitch.

I actually just had luck today getting past a glitch on the Strength Smoothie quest on Icestorm by changing devices, I switched from my Windows based PC where I was stuck on the glitch to try it on my Android based Kindle Fire, and the snow pile I needed suddenly appeared! Several more unrelated quests also unlocked, so I have some more to do while waiting on an answer to the Icestorm footprint and missing Stinger glitch.

It might be worth a try, if you have other devices with different operating platforms to give it a try on. Let me know if you do and whether it works!
