Assassin's Creed Valhalla General Discussion [Non-Spoilers]

SamsterZer0

Why does the Hermit from the quest Adorning the Adorned has the same cloak as Odin?


ParanoidDingo

Hi everyone! I’ve found a secret entrance just west of St Paul’s Cathedral in Lunden but requires an oil jar to bust it open. I cannot for the life of me find one ANYWHERE, does anyone know of any oil jar locations in Lunden? Thanks in advance!


TwiceThePride

Nope, I’ve used the ability that shoots an exploding arrow for all of those.


d0vah_kitty

Hi everyone, Last night after a few hours of exploring and gaining some wealth in the form of 5 carbon ingots I decided to go enhance some gear. I only had 5 carbon ingots, no other ingots whatsoever. (I haven't been playing that long) After spending the carbon, 2 pieces of equipment allowed me to upgrade them all the way to mythical. (Ursine Guard and Spartan Bow) And the "cost" was blank. I was a bit confused. Have you experienced this? PS I never really used reddit before so forgive me if my reddit etiquette is off. Dovah


Texasyeti

Ive gotten a lot of Ideas for my Dungeons and Dragons campaign from some of the fortresses and locations in this game. Ive been taking screenshots for locations.


Texasyeti

Ive noticed in Bolingbroc Castle there is no key to get into the top castles locked door. And there is a locked door behind the fort by the cliffs but no way into it. Ive killed everyone in the castle site but found no entrances into these areas. Are there a lot of locations like this?


Boozhound14

Are you able to get the Berserker Armor in the normal gameplay? I didn’t buy the special edition of the game but I saw the Berserker Cloak at the Opal store and now I’m wondering if you can get the full set in the game.


1953corvette

Anyone have any issues finding The Bell? I know where he is supposed to be. He just never seems to appear?


ascarypanda

I just got a contract from reda to assassinate a drunkard.... I walk up to the target and it’s one of the hay filled dummies outside of the hidden ones building at camp... lmao it made me confirm the kill and everything


Piltonbadger

Goneril fight in a beginner zone. What the hell man. No indication of anything regarding level before the fight even starts and I get melted. Why would you put this fight in the starting zone is beyond me. Edit : Also uninteruptable combination that 1 shots me. Nice. I can't fathom some of the design choices in this game.


Iten420

I gotta say, ACV is a terrible game all the way around. I'm dumbfounded how many people love and praise the game. I don't know what games you all have been playing, but this game is insanely terrible. Origins and Odyssey blow Valhalla out of the water. Valhalla took about 10 years of a step back on game production. The graphics are terrible, the animation is terrible, the controls are terrible, the story is terrible, the gameplay is terrible. You wanna play a great game? Ghost of Tsushima is just about as perfect a game can get. It's everything Assassin's Creed should be, but isn't. If you think ACV is great, you're not playing the right games.


[deleted]

Your like the first person I've seen that feels the way I do. Bayak and kassandra were amazing characters, i don't have anything I find engaging about evior.


Pricey_123

Does anyone have any tips to gain skill points quickly and legit? I’m stuck in the game at power 103 and all the next places to pledge to are over 190 suggested power!


tudoe

Finish all wealth, mysteries & artifacts in the places you already pledged to!


ZLS666

Does the items you don’t buy comeback in the thousands eyes shop thingy, just got the game the other day and gotten the shop unlocked today and I don’t have enough to buy the stuff in it will I have a chance to get those items again or are they lost forever?


Boozhound14

I’ve run into a couple of mysteries or scenarios where it tells me I need to be anonymous. Each time there’s either no bad guys around or they’re all dead. Is it a glitch, or do I need to do something else to be anonymous?


GunnzzNRoses

Fun game, but i'll be damned if I don't miss Ezio 😭


Hessa88

doea anyone know why i can not get any romance with any character( randvi and petra), it only give me one option" i see you as a friend"


Corvus1992

Are you already in a relationship with anyone else?


Hessa88

That's the problem i'm not Randvi and petra gave me the same and only option I have not finish the game yet So i don't know if it's a glitch or because of something i did


Amazing_Marsupial_16

Who else wants the option to keep their skill points and weapons on replay! I'm so sad they don't have this feature


oboonga

Does anyone know who Ealdorman Birstan from Colsetre Essex is voiced by because he sounds exactly like the main character Alex from the movie Clockwork Orange?


Sandia_Raptor

Sam Woolf per IMDB


Corvus1992

Well, I've finished everything and am now just working on clearing the map and getting the mysteries, artifacts, wealth. I'm so sad it's all over, I know there's still the seasonal things and the DLCs, but still. The post-launch stuff doesn't sound that extensive either, not compared to Odyssey and all the Tales of Greece quests.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Corvus1992

I'm 100 hours in and I've completed everything story-wise, but I have done quite a bit of exploring so I'd say maybe 80 or so hours?


flicter22

Is anyone having hit detection issues when fighting large groups? Like sometimes my button clicks don't register and the sword doesn't swing.


Electrical-Party-638

I completed a mission yesterday and got a short song of what sounded like a girl doing a wolf howl not sure if there is a full song to it but it reminded me of something and now I'm going mad trying to find out what it is and if whoever sung it has any actual songs with it on, any help??? Also I skimmed through the whole OST checking the start of all the songs and It didn't seem to be any of those, so now I'm wondering where you even find them little 10-15 second long completion sounds???


Jadkaraki

My game is currently running patch 1.0.4 on PS5 but I can't seem to find the option in the settings to switch between Performance and quality mode. Am I missing something or is this the expected normal behavior ?


jmsucre

I finished the Viking for hire quest and now it says to go speak to reda but when I get to him no option to speak comes up. Is this a glitch or do I have to progress further in the story?


ruczaldgniewny

Glitch. I cant speak to him either, even to browse his shop.


jmsucre

Any way around it?


Corvus1992

Am I an idiot or have they added more weapons? I just found a third flail, and a while back I looked at the weapons list to see how many flails there were and there were only two in the world and one in the store. Have they added more stuff or was this flail just unnoticed by these sites?


ruczaldgniewny

Can you take a screenshot, please?


Corvus1992

It's called the soldier's flail, it seems like it was in the game anyway and just wasn't as well known because it's towards the end of the game in a high power level region. Here's a pic: [https://vulkk.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Soldiers-Flail-Stats-1980x766.jpg](https://vulkk.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Soldiers-Flail-Stats-1980x766.jpg)


VsaulW21

have any of you encountered a glitch in Valhalla where summoning your longship doesnt work? It says ability missing when I hold down G?


DirtyFlint

This game is way too long. It's fun but... it's just too much.


Corvus1992

I don't get people complaining about a game being too long. You wait such a long time for it to be released, I like it to take me a good while to complete it.


DirtyFlint

I work a lot of odd hours and don’t want a game to take me a month to finish.


BigFella52

What?


DirtyFlint

I get maybe 8 hours to play a game a week. I personally don’t like long games because I forget people and places by the end


sjorret66

150 h of the game. I cant talk to some persons in raven asylum in england!!! Included jomsviking house, hunter house, house the maps man, shipyard and some more. Iam buid all houses and Its no chances to talk to those npc. Whats the game!!! Its shit. I cant play IT no longer!!!


desf15

What the hell is wrong with fight difficulty in this game? I picked hard remembering how Odyssey looked like, went through first enemies with no issue whatsoever so assumed that this difficulty is ok, and then when I fight first boss he kills me in one fucking hit. I get that "hard" by definition shouldn't be too easy, but death in one hit, and by first boss? Come on...


jmsucre

I love this game but it really needed a few more months in the oven. Like, come on.


swish379

How far percentage wise would the main quest in London be?


[deleted]

Around 20 to 30 percent.

You can only place the tree on the ornament totem next to the giant tree in the settlement.


powfuldragon

Hey, fuck how whenever I’m following river it defaults to songs, double fuck how switching to stories drops sail and forces me to hold square and tap triangle again. Also, the gall to put physics-based puzzles in a game that blasts enemies a quarter kilometer away on a light attack..


thetravelingpeach

I would love to have sat in on that game decision meeting. “Okay guys, we need to brainstorm some Nordic themed collectibles” “Well, cairns are really common in that part of the world! What if we had a cairn building mini game where we had the players stack rocks using the in game physics rather than a preset puzzle solution?” “Would.... would that be fun?” “No, but it’d add another 3 hours of gameplay” “Sold, get on it Johnson”


desf15

Still better than my experience with sailing - boarded boat for the first time, clicked follow river, and then clicked go to target or whatever it was called This caused my boat to ram the land full speed at 90 degree angle in a way that I couldn't manage to get it out on the water later :D


_Goose_

Ran into a new fun little annoying bug. I bought the opal map from the store. I spent my first playthrough meticulously collecting every opal that isn't bugged. I started a new game save file. I still have all the opals I collected my first playthrough. The opals show on my new game world map. However there are no opals there. I figure they aren't meant to be there. Now if you have bought the maps, and go to play a new game, you will have to live with opal icon clutter that can't be removed from the world map throughout it. And there's a shit ton of opal icon clutter.


ChiefBrando

I have been looking on guides but I can’t figure out where the thegn armor is? What is it next to? Like east anglia? Anyone could help me out? And what power level should I be to hunt it?


_Goose_

Have you looked at a youtube guide? [This one](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-aS7sjWYsI) is about as comprehensive as it gets.

Saandrig

It runs worse than Odyssey at the same settings. Difference at 1440p for me is close to 10 FPS in the benchmark, but Valhalla has a lot of spots where performance tanks to 40 or lower FPS, which I haven't noticed in Odyssey. It's mostly during cutscenes thankfully. I am using 8086k, 1080Ti, 32 GB RAM at 3000Mhz. It's not stuttery with a G-sync monitor, but you will notice the FPS drops here and there. It runs between 40 and 80 FPS in the field, generally being 55-60 mostly. As for the settings - they are not exactly comparable to Odyssey. For example the Clouds in Valhalla are not such a hog between different settings and you can use Very High as they are not much heavier than Medium. After testing I tweaked only Shadows and Clouds a notch down from the maximum (I keep DoF and Blur at Off) since I saw no real difference between that and using lower settings.


_Goose_

I have the evga 1080ti FTW. Ryzen 7 3800x I play strictly on 1440p. Most the settings are maxed. I ticked shadows down to high. Runs smooth for me. I tried on 4k tv with most settings ticked down to medium and wasn’t able to reach 60fps. It never dipped below 30 though.


Sturgill_Jennings77

Why is male Eivor so short? It seems like every man and even some of the women are damn near a head taller than him


danceswithronin

I don't know but frankly it's adorable.


buckets93

I think because female Eivor is technically canon. So they only have one character model and don’t change the heights if you change the sex.


microwavedcheezus

Does anyone else hate the sound that plays when you get a Roman Artifact?


Corvus1992

The creepy thing? I love it but the first time it happened it absolutely terrified me, I thought something horrible was happening lol.


microwavedcheezus

Same! I got the same uneasy feeling as when I'm near the Cursed Symbols.


grim_afternoon

I hate fishing. Its too exhausting


SubZeroIceMK

I tried to fish several times.It took me 3 minutes to tire the fish and bring him to the shore without breaking the line.It's much easier and time consuming to use your arrows.Also you can keep your resources you would had spent to build the fishing hut in your base required to receive the fishing rod.


Corvus1992

I just shoot them with an arrow, works well lol.


danceswithronin

Ditto, arrow fishing for me all day.


Dietcokeisgod

I spent 4 hours getting those damned fish.


Saandrig

Spear fishing got me all the fish any altar required in less than 10 minutes.


ThucydidesJones

Agreed. I have wrist issues too (I've even had surgery)... thanks Ubisoft. Very annoying that they force you to go fishing for at least one main quest.


Saandrig

Errr, you can attack the fish with a spear and be done in 30 seconds. Only one Mystery so far actually required me to use the fishing rope.


ThucydidesJones

Does that work for the main story quest where Cleobert makes you fish with him?


Saandrig

That's how I did it. He even commented something like "So that's what you Norse call fishing?"


Connorkara

I don’t even have wrist issues and mine are killing me by the time I’m finished 1-2 big catches. I’ve mostly been smacking fish with a great sword or axe when they get close enough to shore. Maybe they should’ve just made a fishing net that could catch groups of fish instead?


thetravelingpeach

One of the only male love interests is locked behind a glitched fishing quest.... I spent an absurd amount of time fishing at least ten fish before I realized that this couldn’t possibly be correct


grim_afternoon

Dang, that's rough, it would be great catching all the fish! But because of the repeated mashing, I have no interest at all.


Tommy-_-

This might be a stupid question, but if I bought Valhalla on pc, can I play it on my PS5 as well? Or would I have to buy the Ps5 edition?


nomore2give

You have to buy the ps5 version as well, but your save file will transfer through uplay


Tommy-_-

Pain


Vashtrigun0420

I can’t seem to unlock the 220 Gloucestershire region on the alliance map. Does anyone know the requirements?


Corvus1992

More alliance options get added as you progress in the story, it's not necessarily just about power level.


Vashtrigun0420

Yes, I’ve finished all the other areas.


Connorkara

Been to Vinland? Some of the quests aren’t tied so much to areas


Vashtrigun0420

Yep. Finished Vinland. I'm putting off Sussex because I wanna finish all the areas before I do that final questline but :[


robhans25

Play with power level order. This region, Glowecestrecire unlocks after You clear Eurvicscire region, with unlocks After Suthsexe - with isint final questline by a mile.


Vashtrigun0420

Oh. Well. Lmao, I thought Sussex was the end of it. That makes sense, I appreciate it.


COVID19beers

Does anybody know how to reset Trader stock in AC Valhalla? I’m trying to max out multiple sets and I’m running outta titanium. I’ve tried mediating, sleeping in Ravensthorpe, travelling between Norway and England and multiple traders don’t have stock. Quick way to restock them?


thetravelingpeach

I think it’s related to personal gaming time, you may have to set your system/pc’s time forward


COVID19beers

I think you’re right, I even loaded a save as well as leaving the console off for an hour and it hasn’t refreshed.


thelightfantastique

I just finished the Hidden Bureaus quest and I am VERY happy with the reward.


Scaviferro

Did anyone else tiredlessly die to Redwalda until you killed him? I first encountered him when I was power 30 and he 95. I tried on and on again for like an hour because I thought that with perfect headshots, parries and dodges I could kill him. Well I didn't but I came back at power 50 and I managed to do it. I know I could have waited to get stronger but it felt so rewarding!


SuperMicklovin

Encountered him on a mission actually so my a.i companions helped me out with him lol


microwavedcheezus

At the church eh? I think that happened to me too.


SuperMicklovin

The Roman ruins Veronis I think.


Waifu_Worship

Is that stupid antler collection quest a mystery or does it just provide the location of the bigass deer? I already found it while just walking around and killed it, meanwhile I have 0 antlers after killing dozens of the damn deer who all had antlers. This is some classic WoW tier shit with droprates lol \^\^


thetravelingpeach

So reindeer are a different species than the normal deer Reindeer only spawn in Norway and the higher level English districts So you might have to go back to Norway(a bit thanksgiving drunk, sorry)


auto-xkcd37

> big ass-deer *** ^(Bleep-bloop, I'm a bot. This comment was inspired by )^[xkcd#37](https://xkcd.com/37)


ozzemg

Is it just me, or does Valhalla have worse graphics than previous titles? I have a very high end system and was looking forward to this but it's kind of.... ugly.


Saandrig

Character models look terrible when you are 5 meters away or so. Don't know if it's a glitch. Overall Valhalla has better lighting and maybe color work than Odyssey, but the constant fog, smoke and darker tones don't allow that to shine. When the sun shines and you are out of the fog, there are some amazing views in Valhalla. But I think Odyssey might have better shaders as it looks more crisp.


ThucydidesJones

If you're on PC, try this: [https://www.nexusmods.com/assassinscreedvalhalla/mods/12?tab=description](https://www.nexusmods.com/assassinscreedvalhalla/mods/12?tab=description) You're gonna like the way your Assassins Creed: Valhalla looks, I guarantee it.


ToodlyPipster

It having worse graphics than previous entries is something of an illusion, but it certainly doesn't look great for a 2020, or even for a 2015 game - when you put it side-by-side with some of the best stunners of the past generation, such as Red Dead 2, Arkham Knight, Uncharted 4, it pales. A big issue is just that it is much more flatly lit, especially at night, and this makes all the textures look even more plasticy than they already do.


metaornotmeta

Odyssey doesn't look really good either tbh, Origins was really beautiful however.


Scaviferro

I think it's just the atmoshphere that looks a little bland (especially compared to Odyssey's bright colors). I'm playing the game in 4K and it looks stunning


QuitClearly

Yeah maxed out and HDR absolutely fantastic.


Maykko_

I've kind of noticed that the audio design for this game while excellent in some places, absolutely terrible in others, for example hitting a wooden shield and it does the initial break, it sounds terrible, like you're snapping a twig but the actual shield destruction sounds great, it sounds as though its actually been broken. Combat sounds in general are pretty lackluster and there's no real ambience in towns, just villagers talking, no real sounds other than that.


ThucydidesJones

Audio is mostly terrible IMO. The quality is horrific. Too compressed I think. Wish we had an optional HQ audio pack. Honestly, it's kind of unacceptable how bad the audio is in a lot of places. Mix isn't great either.


Maykko_

Probably, this would make sense considering the game is only like 60gb, I expected it to be a lot bigger.


ThucydidesJones

Game is 45GB for me. Super small for a 2020 AAA open world game.


Maykko_

Oh yeah.. mines showing as 49gb. Isn't Odyssey actually bigger than Valhalla?


ThucydidesJones

Odyssey is double the size of Valhalla, lol. My Odyssey folder was around 100GB including DLC. Origins is even bigger I'm pretty sure, at about 50 - 55GB IIRC.


David-Leferink

I’m having a problem with the legendary animals, wanted to hunt the >!Beast of the hills!< located in >!Sciropscire!< but upon entering the arena the animal was allready gone and I did not slay it yet, anybody has the same problem or knows how to fix it?


shadowlarvitar

Go up, he's spawned on top of the hill. Kill him then go back and it completes


David-Leferink

Thanks!


shadowlarvitar

No problem, I had that issue too


KJW2K19

So am on the bartering quest part of the kingmakers saga chapter 2 and i just need to report back to sigurd and the brothers and the quest marker is just not coming up for me even after the latest patch ive used the raven aswell and nothing ive actually found sigurd and the brothers ingame there by lyftmeres pond and i cant do anyfin its really annoyin as i cant progress but i can do any other mission side quest perfectly fine plz help me. Ubisoft support is down atm too.


Straightup32

Is there any way to turn off photo toggle? I’ll be running and I want to scan the area, but when l3 and R3 are pressed, I go to photo mode


microwavedcheezus

There is an option in the settings for the PC. Not sure about consoles though.


Trambulance

You don’t have to keep L3 pressed for running, you just press it once and toggle it.


PapaT-rex

Yeah there is, it should be in the gameplay tab in the options menu


doondoon1867

Has anybody else had the problem where you can't fight one of the daughters of legion and/or a way to fix it. I have done 6 arcs since then and don't want to restart


Sioswing

The auto mod on this fucking sub needs to fuck off. Is anyone else experience crashes during cutscenes? I love this game but it is buggy as fuck and that’s inexcusable for a $60 title.


danceswithronin

Most of the crashes I have experienced in the game have been in transition from cutscene to gameplay or vice versa.


Sioswing

Same. And it’s annoying if you haven’t saved in a bit


danceswithronin

At least one time it happened to me after a hard boss fight that it made me re-do which was obnoxious. Another time it crashed after a boss fight but managed to save the fact that I won.

ffarqaleet

I’m having a bug where I can’t talk to the shipyard or the stable guy in the settlement Any idea how to fix ?


retroracer33

Is there not an option for toggle or hold while sprinting? I don’t usually have any issue either way, but for some reason in this game the toggle sprinting is driving me nuts.


Sexiarsole

I remember setting the option for toggle or hold during the initial settings. Assume it’s in the settings somewhere.


microwavedcheezus

Only for walking. Not sprinting.


cocomunges

So I had a bug where island of eels wouldn’t complete [as seen here it is in the completed tab but still tracked ](https://i.imgur.com/bkHpLal.jpg) After the update today I had it complete and give me EXP but the next quest “reporting on grante...” wouldn’t show up. I am effectively still stuck, any fixes?

Just press right until you get to 50, Then press buy 4 times.


retroracer33

Can you press left and have it jump to max or will it just stick at zero?


microwavedcheezus

It stays at 1. Very annoying considering Odyssey allowed you to go left.


CJ_Lvl

If I beat the main story does the game let me complete story arcs I didn’t complete? I can’t find an answer to this question someone please help.


buckets93

Can’t speak for certain. But past AC games I can’t remember them ever having a cut off point for some quest.


SefuJP

Does anyone else not bother with the present day animus stuff? I skip that stuff so fast and don’t really see why they do it anymore after Desmond saved the world.


TheSmio

Desmond technically did save the world, but he also let out evil Juno by doing so. Unfortunately, Ubi screwed up the storytelling afterwards and they didn't really do anything meaningful in the modern day ever since. At least Valhalla tries to set up a new modern day story that actually has an impact.


Samg18

I have a dead body I cannot collect my last wealth from.... (in Vinland, Hvallgrof Outpost) enemies do not respawn either. Only lets me carry the body


BiggDope

The latest patch caused this issue. There’s no workaround as far as I’ve tested or found.


rowebenj

Fast travel away and complete some quests, and let the guy/ the entire camp respawn. I had this happen too.


BiggDope

I tried this and it didn’t work. I don’t think enemies reset if you finish the story arc there.


Samg18

I trapped the body and forced it to explode, then either fast travel back to England or save and reload the game, that’s made the enemy respawn


BiggDope

Yup, I was able to get that method to work a few hours after originally posting my comment, fortunately!


bumblevee19

Did you fast travel away and wait some time? I had a similar bug but in an earlier area... And took some time and few revisits to check.


thesilvershire

Does anyone know if the update fixes A Brother’s Keeper? I’ve been putting off that mission because I know it’s bugged


funkfunktunktunk

The update didn't fix Sons of Ragnar or any of the broken mysteries for me.


BurnStar4

What time is the update out today? Or is it already out? UK by the way.


Maxcalibur

It was out (at least on PS5) pretty much right around 12pm


BurnStar4

Oh sick, thanks! Has it made much of a difference? Sounded promising when I read patch notes


Maxcalibur

I haven't played for very long yet but I have noticed that the mount/dismount animation seems much better, just as one thing.


BurnStar4

Awesome, looking forward to trying it out this evening


funkfunktunktunk

So I downloaded the patch and yet all the quests that were broken are still broken. Specifically, still can't speak with Ubba. And now Ubba has entirely disappeared. Can't find him anywhere. Now Ubba and the longship are back, but can't speak to Ubba. This is getting fucking ridiculous. Who the fuck made this patch?! Tim the Toolman?!


Big-Cheeky

More of an Al Borland.... they nerfed the easy silver drinking challenge


ztsmyder

Probably need a new save game honestly, unfortunate but it is probably the issue, at least you are not that far into the game on the bright side.


funkfunktunktunk

I went and got all the abilities (minus the one in the castle), did as many of the mysteries as possible (only about half of them functioned) killed all order member's available at this point, and got all the wealth not locked behind story. I'm a total of 65 hours in. If I have to start over, I'd rather just not play the game again.


ztsmyder

Oh damn, well yeah idk then I guess you'll have to wait for now unfortunately


asirpakamui

Where can I get the major runes in Armor? You know the ones with special effects? All I've got is the trashy ones like Increased Evasion at Night.


MikeVK123

Is it worth purchasing? I used to be a huge fan but haven’t bothered after origins.


funkfunktunktunk

Nope the quests are still broken. Can't progress the main quest still.


funkfunktunktunk

Depends on if this patch actually fixes the broken quests or not. Currently downloading it, so I'll pop back in with an update in 10 minutes when it finishes. Nope, broken quests still broken for me.


MikeVK123

Disgraceful that the game isn’t actually working properly on release... surely they have a little more dignity?


TheSmio

This year, it's at least somewhat excusable because covid made everything much harder, but yeah, it sucks, I wish the game was more polished.


funkfunktunktunk

I'm sure the actual devs do, but the company as a whole does not.


ToastSandwichSucks

i think after finishing valhalla it's clear the series direction will need to be a more directed and 'tighter' game like AC1 or AC2. it doesn't mean they need to ditch the open world and rpg aspects but given that they show hints of good gameplay tied into the plot they have the talent and capability. it just felt too ubisoft'd with the padding in between and it's starting to show it's blandness. i had great fun with origins and odyssey but this formula is stale by valhalla (i mean raid, assaults, and all that add nothing to the game besides just combat with more button prompts and visuals) i like the story and characters especially with the atmosphere and tone of the asgard missions were.


selbh

How do you whistle? I'm playing on PC


TheSmio

it's x, I think


strange_is_life

Is there any rare loot to find in Asgard or is it only about skill points? Trying to find a reason to go back there.


Kaneland96

Getting all the collectibles in Asgard just rewards you with 5 skill points, you don’t get anything special like gear.


strange_is_life

And the mission? Is it worth doing it?


ripxanvulf

So this is slightly frustrating but for some reason parry/block has been replaced with some sort of quickdraw bow shot? It's not any skill in the tree and no matter what weapon LB(Xbox) Eivor shots the bow. This is not the same as me aiming it mind as that is fine. Any ideas??


MedjayLaCactus

Got the same issue on PC. Most of the time it lasts only for a short time though. I think it has to be some bug connected with the skill where you can return projectiles fired at you. Returning an arrow gives the same animation. The skill is also bound to the same button (on PC at least).

There may be some slight spoilers shared by anyone who might answer my question. I am a long time AC fan but I miss playing as a pure assassin and learning about brotherhood conspiracies etc. I am by no means shitting on the series but I do have a question about Valhalla before I commit to purchasing it and spending a lot time playing it. For those who have played Valhalla, does Eivor become an assassin in the brotherhood at some point? Please no spoilers beyond answering the question with yes/no/and/or/but. Your answer might have slight spoilers, which I am fine with, but please use a spoiler warning for others. Appreciate it.

No, but lately the series seems more about the development of the Assassin/Templar philosophies and the roots of them than about the brotherhood itself. I for one enjoy this new angle, and it's not like we can pretend that Eivor doesn't share certain qualities seen in pure Assassins.

I don’t mind the new angle (I completed Origins and Odyssey and their DLCs) but I miss what made me fall in love with this series in the first place.

I hear you. I think the biggest thing missing right now is big cities. Part of the issue, I believe, is the time periods they're choosing limiting what you can do with regards to urban environments, but I miss density. If we could have a Unity-sized city within big country gameplay, I think it'd be a really good blend. I'm very happy with the return of social stealth in Valhalla; now they need to put it to better use in the next game with a bigger city.


kb_92

Yes, say what you want about Unity but it nailed the city and population density. But I agree, if you had one large city with a surrounding area of wilderness, the map would be great. But I’d also really like to play as an established or establishing assassin within the brotherhood. I miss those kind of characters, secrets, conspiracies, and even combat with the hidden blade at the core.


MarciV51

Not from what i've heard. But he is involved with the Hidden Ones and the Order of the Ancients


TheSmio

No. Well, not yet, there are still 3 planned DLCs for the future, so it's possible it will happen (you never know), but it doesn't in the main game.


Bythion

No.

Man it fuckin crashed on me during a cutscene and I lost like 5 hours of my game. First time this has happened


_Goose_

5 hours? Is it not auto saving for you? Or is your save bugged too?

I know this is non-spoilers but I didn’t want to make a full post for a single question. This has to do with the end of the Sciropescire arc so if you aren’t there don’t continue: >!During the boss fight with Ivarr at the end he stops at about 1/3 HP and says he wants to ask you something. I ran around grabbing mushrooms to regain health and he got impatient and attacked me. I’m curious if someone could tell me what you talk about if you interact with him?!< Thanks.
