You'll have plenty of choices to make throughout your journey in AC Valhalla. It's true that many of these decisions won't have any great impact on the rest of the story, so in many cases you're free to pick whichever you feel is most natural for your Eivor. There are, however, more than a few actions or dialogue options dotted throughout that can change the ending you'll receive when you finally cross the finish line of Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
A lot of the choices you're faced with aren't always black and white—there's not always a clear right or wrong answer. And the same is true for the potentially story-altering decisions too, assuming you can even tell which ones those are. It's safe to say that any decision relating to Sigurd is going to be important so you should be especially careful with those choices. Though even then, the correct course isn't always clear-cut.
If you don't want to leave things to chance, or gamble with the ending you'll eventually receive, I've listed the AC Valhalla choices below, in a (somewhat) chronological order.At the very bottom of the page, you'll now find the answer to a major choice at the end of the new Wrath of the Druids DLC as well.
If you're worried about spoilers, please tread carefully here. The answer to each choice is listed below.
Banish or kill Gorm?
This is one of the first decisions you'll need to make in AC Valhalla. It comes while you're still in Norway, shortly after you defeat Kjotve and try to hunt down his fleeing son, Gorm. King Harald will ask you what should be done with Gorm and you'll be given three options to choose from.
- Kill him
- Banish him
- Let King Harald decide
The outcome will be the same whichever option you choose for the AC Valhalla Gorm decision, so it's entirely your choice.
Take the resources or leave them for Styrbjorn?
One of the first important choices in Assassin's Creed Valhalla will present itself fairly early on in the game, just before you leave for England. It happens during The Seas of Fate quest and you'll need to choose whether to take the resources gained from the Kjotve raid with you or leave them for Styrbjorn.
And while it's true that the extra resources would clearly be welcome for the journey ahead, what price will you pay later on? To be safe, you should leave the resources for Styrbjorn during the AC Valhalla leave or take the resources decision.
Stench of Treachery traitor choice
Shortly after you arrive in England and embark on the Grantebridgescire story arc, you are given The Stench of Treachery quest where you'll need to help Soma to figure out who has betrayed her. One of Soma's inner circle is the traitor and there will be some investigating to do to help you uncover which one it is. The choices here are:
The identity of the traitor is Galinn so you should choose him when given the option during the AC Valhalla traitor decision.
Kill or spare Leofrith?
During the Ledecestrescire story arc—and during the Heavy is the Head quest—you'll need to find Ceolbert. The quest marker points you in the right direction and you find him talking to Leofrith who you'll then need to fight. Once you've beaten him, you'll be presented with the following choices:
- Spare: Burgred abandoned you.
- Kill: Pray to your god now.
If the AC Valhalla spare or kill Leofrith decision has you stumped, the best option here is to spare Leofrith.
Should you punch Basim and Sigurd?
During the Blood from a Stone quest, which takes place during the Oxenefordescire story arc, Sigurd will try to make a deal with Lady Eadwyn but Eivor loses her temper and starts a fight. Afterwards, you'll be given several options when speaking with Sigurd and Basim.
There are three lots of options here and at least one can affect which ending you'll get.
You can choose either option for the first choice, Take a breath for the second, and Enough of this for the third. So no, you shouldn't resort to violence during the AC Valhalla Basim punch showdown.
Should you exile Lady Eadwyn?
At the end of The Saga Stone questline in Oxenefordscire, you'll be tasked with assaulting Lady Eadwyn's stronghold (Cyne Belle Castle). After you fight and defeat her, Eivor will be faced with two possible choices.
- Let her be exiled
- Let Geadric look after her
You are free to choose whichever option you like during the AC Valhalla Let her be exiled decision as it will have no bearing on anything that comes after
The Vault's identity
The AC Valhalla Closing the Vault quest is picked up partway into the Jorvik story arc. You are tasked with uncovering the identity of the Vault—one of the members of the Order of the Ancients and you'll have the chance to do a little digging to help you out. But once you reach the Yuletide feast, you'll need to make a decision and name one of the four possible suspects:
The correct identity of the Vault is Audun so you should choose him during the AC Valhalla Closing the Vault decision.
Who should get the silver?
This choice happens during the Sciropescire story arc. You'll be given the War Weary quest and you'll need to follow Ceolbert to a cathedral and choose who to give 650 silver to in order to help bring about peace. There are various options available to you here:
- Lady Angharad
- Have Eivor keep the silver
The results are pretty much the same whoever you give the silver to so your best bet is to let Eivor keep it during the AC Valhalla War Weary silver decision.
King Killer quest choice
You'll have a couple of choices to make during the King Killer quest which happens during the Sciropescire story arc. The first choice comes at the end of the boss fight, and the second choice happens when you return to Quatford and meet up with Ubba.
The first choice doesn't appear to have any bearing on the story, so it's up to you whether you want to deny or send Ivarr to Valhalla. For the second choice—when talking to Ubba—you should tell him that Ivarr died badly.
Should you give Dag his axe?
This choice will impact the ending of AC Valhalla so you'll need to think carefully—or follow the link further down—before you make a decision. The Brewing Storm quest triggers at a certain point in the game when you return to Ravensthorpe. Dag will confront you and, after a brutal scuffle, you'll need to make an important choice:
- Give Dag his axe
- Deny Dag his axe
You should give Dag his axe during the AC Valhalla Dag choice if you don't want to risk changing the ending.
Should you romance Randvi?
There are a few romance options in AC Valhalla and one of them presents itself to you midway through the game and this choice has the potential to change the ending of the game. During the Taken for Granted quest and after a bit of sightseeing with Randvi, she will admit her feelings for you and you'll be given three options to respond with.
- I feel the same way
- Now is not the right time
- I care for you as a friend
You should choose I care for you as a friend when you get the chance to romance AC Valhalla Randvi during the Taken for Granted quest.
Old Wounds traitor
During Essexe story arc, you'll be presented with the Old Wounds choice where you'll need to name the person who betrayed Rollo. This one is similar to the Stench of Treachery decision in Grantebridgescire and you'll have the opportunity to question both suspects and search around the camp for clues. The two suspects are:
The identity of the traitor is Gerhild so you should choose her during the AC Valhalla Old Wounds traitor decision.
Where the Stone Falls choice
The Where the Stone Falls choice is part of the Lincolnscire story arc. You'll need to help the region vote in a new ealdorman. You'll have three candidates to choose from and there's very little to go on to help you make your decision. The three options are:
You should pick either Aelfgar or Hunwald during the AC Valhalla Where the Stone Falls choice.
Should you agree with Sigurd's judgement?
You'll receive the Blame and Sail quest when you return to your settlement after finishing the Lincolnscire story arc and the consequences of this can affect the ending of Assassin's Creed Valhalla. You'll need to settle a dispute that's broken out between Holger and Gudrun. The decision on who to side with isn't really important here but Sigurd will return to Ravensthorpe as you make the call. You'll have the following—important—choices:
- The judgement is unfair
- I support Sigurd's judgement
You should support Sigurd's judgement here if you want the best ending for Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
Of Blood and Bonds decision
This choice comes right at the end of the Eurviscire story arc. During the Of Blood and Bonds quest, you'll be at a feast and you'll need to confront one of two people that you've been working with to forge an alliance there. The choices here are:
- You're insane, Halfdan
- Stand down or fight me, Faravid
This is one of the more difficult choices you'll be presented with as you really don't want to mess up the alliance. The best option here is Stand down or fight me, Faravid when it's time to confront either AC Valhalla Halfdan or Faravid.
This choice is at the end of the Wrath of the Druids DLC main mission, in which you'll need to decide a fate for Ciara. By the time you get here, you'll know that Ciara believes that she needs to die to prevent the Children of Danu's plots, but the choice is up to Eivor:
- An honorable death
- I can't kill you
This choice is really up to you, because the Lia Fail stone gets destroyed whether or not you kill Ciara. Her friend Deidre will refer to your choice later, but other than that your decision doesn't appear to change events at large.
