KEY POINTS

  • "Assassin's Creed Valhalla" is packed with relics from European folklore
  • This includes King Arthur's legendary sword Excalibur
  • Check out some tips and tricks on how to obtain the game

"Assassin’s Creed Valhalla" is mainly influenced by European folklore, with some of its most notable artifacts available in-game. One of these is the legendary sword Excalibur, which rewards Eivor with the Caladfwich trophy. Unfortunately, Eivor would not simply come across this weapon as it is tucked in a cave that only becomes available when Eivor explores the rest of England.

To find King Arthur’s Excalibur in the game, Eivor must find all the Treasures of Britain locations first then gather the Tablet from each site. There are 11 Tablets and eight of these could be obtained by doing the Treasure of Britain Blue Mystery Events. These are underground cave systems with the treasure waiting at the end.

Zealots drop the three remaining Tablets. Eivor could obtain these from the Order of the Ancients members, namely Hrothgar, Heike and Woden. The only way for Eivor to get the Tablets is by killing these Zealots. The level of difficulty depends on his power level. He may have a tough time fighting with the rat Lord Hrothgar or with Woden.

It is recommended that Eivor use every ability available and dodge the unparriable attacks hurled by the enemies. Fortunately, the caves in "Assassin’s Creed Valhalla" Treasures of Britain are not that stressful. Eivor must keep moving forward or down and heed the path.

The "Assassin’s Creed" series has a penchant for using white as route indicators, which Eivor could use if he gets stuck or has no idea where to go next. These indicators could be in the form of white marks on rocks, pain, light or white sheets. Eivor also needs to remember the destructible nature of these environments and think in movement puzzles.

After collecting all 11 Tablets, Eivor can proceed to Myrddin’s Cave located in Hamtunscire. The cave is named on the map, so he will not have a hard time finding it. It is worth noting that there are Level 340 bears in the area, so he needs to watch out. In the cave, Eivor must insert the 11 Tablets in a stone circle. This will trigger King Arthur’s Excalibur to appear. At this point, Eivor can simply draw the sword from the stone.
