The Sons of Ragnar
Embark on a legendary journey through the Viking saga in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as you take on the role of Eivor, a fierce Viking raider. In the quest The Sons of Ragnar, you’ll find yourself in the heart of conflict and political intrigue, tasked with locating your brother Sigurd and storming the formidable fortress of Tamworth. This guide will provide you with step-by-step instructions to successfully navigate through this pivotal mission.
Step 1: Meet Sigurd in Repton
- To initiate the quest, travel to Repton in the region of Ledecestrescire and locate the main objective marker within the village’s central building. Upon your arrival, you’ll be greeted with a cutscene featuring Ivarr, a man engaged in the unsavory act of torture, setting the tone for the events to come.
Step 2: Take a Tour with Ivarr and Speak to Ubba
- Following the initial cutscene, Ivarr will provide a tour of the area, eventually leading to another cutscene that reveals his ambition to ascend in power by killing a king. After the conclusion of this scene, make your way roughly 180 meters to the north to find the next objective marker, where you’ll converse with Ubba, another key character in the unfolding drama.
Step 3: Travel to Tamworth and Engage in Battle
- With your new orders in hand, your next destination is Tamworth in Ledecestrescire. Upon arrival, another cutscene will set the stage for a confrontation with King Burgred and Leofrith. Before the skirmish can begin, you must speak with the Ragnarssons’ captain at a nearby camp to state your readiness for the assault.
Step 4: Breach the Fortress Doors
- Back in control of Eivor, the assault on the fort’s doors begins. Approach the breaching weapon and use the appropriate button (Triangle/Y) to interact with it. Be prepared to defend yourself using L1 to brace against incoming arrows and R2 to lead the charge at the door. You’ll need to repeat this process until the door yields.
Step 5: Advance and Breach Further Gates
- Once the doors have been overcome, engage any adversaries within and await the arrival of the breaching mechanism. Your task is to utilize it for demolishing the blocked palisade in your path and repeat the breaching process on a subsequent gate further inside the fortress.
Step 6: Defeat King Burgred’s Elites
- With passage cleared, your objective updates to target King Burgred’s elite combatants. It’s advisable to focus on these specific foes, bypassing the rank-and-file soldiers. These elites are distinguishable by their robust health and dangerous attacks. Employ evasive maneuvers to dodge lethal red rune attacks and parry their regular onslaughts to dispatch them swiftly, culminating the assault segment of the mission.
Step 7: Force Open the Marked Door and Discover Evidence
- Post-battle, locate the door marked for your attention and use the appropriate button (Triangle/Y) to force it open, triggering yet another cutscene. Afterwards, activate Odin’s Sight to find a teal-lit table, where essential evidence awaits your perusal. Read the document to gather intelligence before returning to Ivarr to initiate a final cutscene, thus concluding the mission.
Step 8: Proceed to the Next Quest
- With The Sons of Ragnar wrapped up, you’re ready to continue your epic journey in the next chapter of the saga.
