Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids presents a new chapter that sees Eivor journeying to Ireland. There, you’ll meet cousin Barid who has become the King of Dublin. Well, he’s more like a petty king because the actual High King, Flann Sinna, is his overlord. Unfortunately, sinister plots will turn the lush countryside into a battleground and Eivor will have to eliminate multiple threats. Here’s our Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids guides and features hub to help you out.
Note: Wrath of the Druids is the first expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. You can also check out our guides and features hub for the base game.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids – Guides and features hub
Official review – You can explore large parts of Ireland while helping Barid, Flann Sinna, and the bard Ciara. That means you’ll spend more hours as Eivor, hunting foes and grabbing collectibles. Still, is this expansion worth your while?
Ireland map and points of interest – Ireland has several regions and numerous points of interest. Here’s the map to help you get started.
New weapons and armor sets – Naturally, these locations have armor sets and weapons that you can obtain. These include Celtic Armor and Druidic Armor.
New abilities and Tomes of Knowledge – You’ll want to obtain new abilities like the Vikingr Salute, Smoke Bomb Arrow, and Irish Wolfhound.
Trade Posts and Overseas Trading – Part of the core gameplay loop in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids is claiming new trade posts. Once you do this, you can amass resources and upgrade certain functions. In turn, you’ll be able to engage in overseas trading through the merchant Azar. You’ll receive rewards such as armor sets, weaponry, and cosmetics that follow a certain theme (i.e., Byzantine Greek designs).
Royal Demands and King’s Pleas – There are areas that have pigeon coops. These allow you to pick up sidequests depending on the region. You can earn more resources, and completing optional King’s Pleas objectives will even grant you bigger boons.
Trial of the Morrigan – Six locations in the game world allow you to battle druids. They’ll use firebombs, wild animals, and hallucinogenic concoctions.
Children of the Danu – Members of this druidic cult need to be eliminated.
Balor and the Gae Bolg spear – If you manage to take out all Children of the Danu cultists, you’ll be able to fight Balor, a demon from Irish mythology. Beating him rewards you with the Gae Bolg spear.
Defeating the final boss – The final bout at the end of the campaign is actually a multi-phase encounter.
