Here are our Hints for Assassin's Creed Valhalla on Xbox Series X. The most trustworthy items get the most 'thumbs up' from our users and appear nearer the top!
To get Thor’s Hammer, you will need to finish the main game and have the full set of Thor’s Armor.
3 of the Thor’s Armor pieces can be obtained by defeating the 3 Sisters of Lerion.
Thor’s Helmet is found in East Anglia Cave.
Thor’s Cape is a reward given to you by Hytham if you defeat all of the members of the Order of the Ancients.
These 5 pieces make up the full Thor’s Armor set.
Once you’ve completed the main story, put on all 5 pieces of armor from the Thor’s Armor set and head to the north of Norway, where you will be able to take Thor’s Hammer. It will only appear if the main game is complete and you are wearing the full armor set.
To get Excalibur, you will need to get all 8 Treasures of Britain as well as 3 Tablets from the Zealots named Woden, Heike, and Hrothgar.
The Treasures of Britain are marked as Mysteries and involve platforming sequences in order to reach them.
The three Zealots patrol the roads in specific areas.
Once you have all 11 of these Tablets, take them to Myrddin’s Cave in Hamtunscire and use them at the stone circle to make Excalibur appear for you to take.
Near Glowescestre, at the Crossroads, there are three guards who walk past whom you can fight to loot Titanium, Nickle, and Tungsten from after their defeat. However, they will respawn if you re-load the area. This means you can keep saving at this spot and loading your save to fight them over and over and get unlimited Titanium, Nickle, and Tungsten.
Use your raven to get a view of the area, as well as a guide leading you to your goal.
Odin’s Sight also provides you with a special look at the area to help you find targets, items, and more.
To heal, you will need to use rations. Gather berries and mushrooms to make rations or buy rations from vendors.
There are many skills you can unlock, and you can re-spec at any time if you decide you dislike the skills you chose.
Some early skills to consider include Auto-Loot, which lets you automatically collect loot instead of picking it up manually, and Breakfall, which minimizes fall damage.
You’ll also want to upgrade your rations pouch as soon as possible so that you can carry more rations, as well as your quiver to let you carry more arrows.
Try not to worry too much about silver early on in the game, as it will become more plentiful by the time you really need to buy things. However, selling unneeded runes and gear and playing the gambling mini-games are two ways to earn more silver quickly.
Gather arrows whenever you can, because they are in somewhat short supply. You’ll want to gather them from buildings as well as from defeated enemies.
If you’re near water, you can call your crew for help during battles, and they will fire upon your enemies.
There are a lot of things you won’t unlock until you’re a significant way through the main story, such as the Leap of Faith and Assassinations. Therefore, you might consider sticking with the main story through the first act before exploring the world and doing side content, to have all the major game mechanics available to you as you do so.
