Assassin's Creed Valhalla Guide

Welcome to Valhalla! Assassin's Creed Valhalla guide contains tips and hints, as well as a full walkthrough. Tips concern things like combat, secrets, romance, exploration, and the Drakkar. We also have guide to Eivor's choices, system requirements, keybinds and a trophy.

The following guide to Assassin's Creed Valhalla contains complete information about the latest installment of the popular action series. Our guide will help you learn all the basic gameplay mechanics, complete the game, find 100% of the secrets and unlock the platinum trophy.

The game guide and the FAQ chapter are the first major section. You will learn about the basics of combat, stealth, exploration, sailing, expanding the settlement, or developing Eivor. The guide also informs about the Order of the Ancients, gender change, raids, important decisions, and romances. The second part of the guide is a walkthrough where you can find descriptions of all main and side quests. From our walkthrough, you will learn about important choices and their consequences, and how to beat bosses.

The third part of the guide is devoted to the secrets and collectibles. You will learn where to find treasure maps, skill books, unique gear, Treasures of Britain, or optional locations. This chapter is complemented by high-quality maps in the world atlas, on which we marked all the main regions of the game - Norway, England, Vinland and Asgard.

AC Valhalla: Starting tips

Below you will find some of the most important tips for people starting their adventure with AC Valhalla:

  1. You can choose separate difficulty levels for combat, stealth and exploration. You don't have to choose the same settings for all game elements. If, for example, you only have problems with combat, you can lower their difficulty. You can change the difficulty level at any time.
  2. In addition to completing the quests, you can also do events and explore the map. This will allow you to gain experience points faster and consequently get skill points quicker. You need them to increase Eivor's power so they can explore more difficult regions.
  3. Find as many skill books as possible to unlock new skills. They can significantly increase Eivor's effectiveness in combat, including stronger bosses or legendary animals.
  4. Improve the main character's gear on a regular basis. You can do this in two ways – improve the quality of the gear by bringing ingots to Gunnar the blacksmith in the settlement and spend regular crafting materials to buy more upgrades. The items' statistics will increase and you will gain access to rune slots.
  5. Plan the first buildings in the settlement well, as the building materials obtained from raiding the monasteries are limited. We recommend building a Hidden Ones' office as soon as possible – it will unlock access to the extensive plotline in which you hunt members of the Order of the Ancients.
  6. Save the status of the game before each conversation – you may be forced to make important choices. You make a lot of important decisions throughout the game. Apart from small choices, you will also have important ones, which the game does not distinguish on the screen in any way. A bad choice can lead to the death of an NPC or angry the person you are talking to. Saving the game will reduce the risk of a negative consequence.
