On this page of the Assassin's Creed Valhalla guide, you will find a detailed walkthrough of the mission: A Feast to Remember.
Eivor (Havi) fulfilled Hyrrokin's requests: he found Suttungra's cauldron and obtained a gift for Gunlodr. It's time to get the mead.
Rewards: 6800 XP.
Find and speak to Suttungr
Go to Utgard to speak with Suttungr. You will find Jotun next to the wooden building on the slope - he is huge so that you won't miss him.
When you hand over to Suttungrow his cauldron, Jotun will change his attitude and start treating Eivor (Havi) respectfully. Moreover, the giant will want to give a feast to honor the visitor from Asgard.
Find and speak to Gunlodr
Go to meet Gunlodr in her cave near the place where you spoke with Suttungr. Her shrine's entrance is protected by magic, but all you have to do is stand at the spot shown in the image above and look towards the stone circle; illusion will blur and reveal the entrance.
After a brief chat, Gunlodr will accept an invitation to a feast given by her father. Exit the cave and follow Gunlodr to the feast hall.
Suttungr will ask Eivor (Havi) to speak to the assembled Jotuns in the Hall. In the course of the speech, you will have to select from the available dialogue options three times. If you choose the right ones, the Jotuns will be satisfied and toast frequently and thus get drunk faster, which will make a difference later on in this task. If you fail, the giants will be disgruntled and boo Havi; they also won't toast. Select the following sequence of the dialog options:
- I am a mighty warrior;
- I respect you;
- Let us just get to drinking.
After the speech, the feast will begin; you will be able to perform several side activities that will persuade the revelers to drink and empty the cauldron of Mead: speak with the Jotuns, find a harp for the musician (taken by the children hiding on top of the structure with the cauldron), get to the kitchen and boost the thirst of the guests (add hot spices to the prepared dishes), participate in a fistfight or an archery tournament.
In the meantime, approach Gunlodr and speak with her to cheer her up and make her have a good time. She will ask you three riddles, and the correct answers are as follows:
- First riddle: Ale;
- Second riddle: Hammer;
- The third riddle: Swans and eggs.
Once the cauldron is empty, Suttungr will instruct Gunlodr to open the vault and allow the servants to bring more mead for the guests.
Find and get the Mead
Use the rope on the left to slide down and quickly get to the vault. When the gates open, go inside.
Gunlodr will catch you inside the vault and ask you what you are doing there. You can respond in the following ways:
- I came to bring you a gift: dialogue option available if you've obtained Thor's bridal circlet in A Gift from the Past mission. Gunlodr is a bit surprised, but she accepts the gift and spends eventful moments with Havi. When the woman falls asleep, find the mead and take it - there will be no fight with the guards;
- I had to see you: if you select this option, Gunlodr will conclude that you are just teasing her and call the guards. There will be a fight;
- Out of my way: she immediately calls the guards, and a fight ensues.
Get the mead (you'll find it in the room with the bas-reliefs on the side walls) and exit the vault.
Suttungr himself will stand on your way, with Loki at his side. The giant will be enraged and will challenge you to a duel.
Suttungr is a formidable opponent with three weaknesses: his left knee, right elbow, and abdomen. When you hit them, you will stun him and you will be able to perform a powerful blow that will massively harm the boss's health bar.
Most of Suttungr's attacks are signaled and can be avoided without taking any damage.
Watch out for special attacks that can throw icy shards onto the battlefield - these can severely injure Eivor (Havi) and slow his movements. When Suttungr uses this ability, hide in a bright area by one of the campfires.
When the enemy's health drops below 50%, the boss will snatch one of the icicles and turn it into an axe with very long attack range. He will also gain access to an additional ability that allows him to send an ice wall towards you. When it hits the target, it will do a lot of damage.
Stay out of your opponent's range or dodge his punches, launch quick counterattacks, and strike whenever you get the chance, and you'll be able to deal with Suttungr in no time. You can't kill your opponent, so you leave him in the arena, defeated.
After the battle, the mission will end and you will receive 6,800 XP as a reward.
