Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Farming Yule Tokens during the Yule Festival holiday event
In order to gain access to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla‘s Yule Festival event, you’ll just need to complete either the Grantebridgescire or Ledecestrescire campaign arcs. After that, go visit your settlement in Ravensthorpe to see a bunch of revelers.
You’ll notice new sidequests under the Yule Festival section. These are repeatable activities that you can complete, and each one grants a certain amount of Yule Tokens:
- Braun’s Folly: Drinking Contest (10 Yule Tokens) – This is the usual drinking minigame.
- Twirling Targets: Archery (40 Yule Tokens) – You’ve got two minutes to hit multiple targets and reach a score of 1,200 points or higher.
- Yule Brawl: Combat (70 Yule Tokens) – You’ll have a fistfight which gets progressively harder.
Although the Yule Brawl sidequest nets you more Yule Tokens, you’ll actually want to do the Archery Contest instead. It’s quite easy since there are several targets with different colors and all you need to do is hit them (you don’t even need to get a bullseye). The 40 Yule Tokens can be obtained within a couple of minutes as long as you get 1,200 points or higher.
So, what exactly can you get from Yule Tokens? Well, there are loads of cosmetic stuff to help you look cool and snazzy in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Here are some examples along with their costs:
- Mōdraniht Ceremonial armor pieces – 60 tokens each
- Mōdraniht Ceremonial Seax and Shield – 150 tokens each
- Yule Festival settlement cosmetics – 15 tokens each
- Mōdraniht-themed tattoos – 20 tokens each
The full Mōdraniht Ceremonial armor set provides an increase to your chance to stun and a damage boost after a stun finisher kill. Meanwhile, the seax weapon increases your critical chance after a kill and the shield boosts your speed when blocking.
Don’t forget that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla‘s Yule Festival event lasts from December 17 to January 7. Make sure you farm and spend those Yule Tokens within the time period.
