A detailed walkthrough of the story quests of The Kingmaker’s Saga chain in the third-person action adventure Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
The Sons of Ragnar
This quest will become available if you talk to Randwi and select a new area to form an alliance. You need to get to Repton, a city northwest of Ravensthorpe. When you find yourself at the gate of Repton, we advise you to immediately synchronize the terrain.
Enter the building and listen to Ivar. Follow him to the main tent and watch another video. You can explore the city, and when you’re ready, head to the pier and chat with Ubba. You need to get to the Tamworth fortress in any way and go to the gates of the city.
After dialogue with King Burgred, the game will also give you time to explore the area and prepare for battle. To launch the attack on Tamworth, find the warrior in the camp of the sons of Ragnar and tell her that it is time to begin the battle.
Move deep into the city and open the gates from the inside, kill enemies along the way. Don’t forget to inspect buildings for treasures and other valuable items.
When you get to the long house, watch another short cut-scene. Use «Odin’s vision» and look around the house to complete the task. In one of the rooms, you will find a «royal book of records» from a mercenary, whom you might have seen earlier in the tent with Ubba and Ivar. Read book and go to Ivar.
Use the map to track Sigurd’s location and go after him. Follow your brother until you are at the gates of Tonnastadir city. The same mercenary Tonna will come out to meet you. She will offer a deal in exchange for information.
There are many interesting places in this settlement, where you will find a book of knowledge, equipment and treasures. It is best to destroy the village in secret. Therefore, if you have the second level of the «charisma» skill, you can offer Tonna half the price for information. In any case, you can finish off the mercenary and get your hard-earned money back, even if you paid the full amount.
Rumors of Ledecestre
At the moment of the passage, Ledecestre is a hostile city. You need to get to the far right tower from the entrance to talk to Ivar. After the dialogue, the game offers you a choice: visit the old bathhouse or the church.
There is nothing to do in the church, so go straight to the old bathhouse building. You can get into the building through the roof and through the main entrance. The easiest way to do this is the first way.
Inside, there will be three guards in front of you. You don’t have to kill them all. Use «Odin’s vision» to understand which guard has the key to the warehouse. Take the key and enter the previously locked room. Watch the cut-scene.
Follow Ceolbert to the market square and start killing the soldiers highlighted by the marker (use “Odin’s vision” to highlight the necessary enemies).
The Walls of Templebrough
Now you head to the abandoned Castle — Templebrough. Talk to Sigurd. There are many enemy soldiers throughout its territory.
Make your way to the castle grounds, climb onto the roof and find the entrance to the castle (you will see red doors on the upper floors outside the building). Go down to the first floor and watch a video of Aethelswith, wife of King Burgred.
At the end of the cut-scene, do not waste time and go to the water. Leave the castle, summon a Drakkar and follow Aethelswith. The fastest way to catch a woman is to ram the boat with a ship. In this case, she will head to the nearest shore.
Tip: do not immediately follow Aethelswith. If you do this, she may change direction and paddle towards Templebrough. In this case, firstly, you will have to swim for a long time after her, and secondly, look at a woman who is trying to climb a high fence directly from the water. If you come across the above bug, load the latest autosave.
After catching up with Aethelswith and destroying her boat, wait until she swims to the shore on her own. Get rid of several enemy soldiers, then tie up the woman and deliver to the camp of the sons of Ragnar.
Tip: You may also experience some difficulties while completing this task. If you tie the woman up, pick her up and try to get into the water, she will free herself and start swimming again towards Templebrough. The best way to transport it is to sit it on a horse, or put it in a drakkar.
Tilting the Balance
Return to Tamworth and speak with Sigurd. Go to the pigsty. To make Aethelswith talk, tell Ivar to leave. The woman will tell you that Burgred is hiding in an old crypt in the south of Ledecestrescire.
Break into the camp and immediately head to the crypt. In the crypt itself, there are only a few warriors and many interesting things that you can find:
- A piece of coal;
- A Book of Knowledge;
- Weapon Spear;
- Weapon Ax.
Use horse and ride with a man without stopping to a marker on the map. Enemy riders will follow you and you to meet you along the way. After reaching Tamworth, watch a lengthy cutscene that completes the task.
Heavy Is The Head
The task will start immediately after completing the previous one. Take a walk with Ivar and chat on various topics. When the hero wakes up, follow the long house and watch the scene with the coronation of Ceolbert. When the ceremony is over, take the fast travel to Repton.
Now, you need to defeat Leofrith. This enemy is not very fast and is afraid of ranged attacks. If you have enough ranged combat skill, then you can hit him with a dozen headshots.
Defeat Leofrith, you have to decide his fate. Choose how to proceed:
- Kill Leofrith;
- Spare Leofrith — in this case, the protagonist will tell the truth to Burgred’s servant about the betrayal of his king. In return, Leofrith will tell where the Zealots get names for their victims. One of these scrolls has the name of the protagonist.
The quest will begin if you find out about the location of the scroll with your name for the Zealots. The scroll is in the bowl by the statue in the Venonis region. Burn the scroll in the statue’s bowl to stop the Zealots. However, if you get too close to them, such enemies will automatically attack the protagonist.
