A real killer always knows how to act. Let's go see what are the best talents Eivor can learn in Assassin's Creed Valhalla

It certainly cannot be said that the art of assassinations is something to be underestimated. A member of the fraternity always knows how to act in any situation and this translates into a wide and varied possibility of approaches to combat. Let's find out what are the true potential of Eivor, the protagonist of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, in this guide to best talents available throughout the game.

Three constellations for three different styles

In this chapter Ubisoft has decided to change course from the previous chapters and divide the skills from the talents. The latter are divided into three constellations which represent the three possible fighting styles. The three branches of Assassin's Creed Valhalla talents are:

  • Rosso, represented by the constellation of the bear: the talents are linked to melee combat
  • Blu, represented by the constellation of the wolf: the talents are related to ranged combat
  • Yellow, represented by the constellation of the raven: the talents are related to stealth combat

By earning experience points and leveling up, you earn Talent Points. These points can be spent within the constellations to unlock passive bonuses which increase Eivor's stats. Also in the center of the constellations are the main talents, which give different skills useful to the protagonist. Knowing the best talents available in Assassin's Creed Valhalla will allow you to make the most of the points obtained and become very powerful in no time.

Here are the talents dedicated to hand-to-hand combat:

  • Ram: pressing R3 Eivor steps on the enemy when he is on the ground
  • Double exchange: pressing RT + R3 (R2 + R3 on PlayStation) reverses the hands with which weapons are held in dual-wielding mode
  • Perfect Attack: pressing RB (or R1) when Eivor spins the weapon increases the damage of the next shot
  • Harmful Block: successful parries cause damage to the enemy
  • Light Bow Combo: consecutive attacks with a light bow deal extra damage
  • Warrior takedown: landing an unsuspecting enemy with a melee weapon alerts all enemies, but the adrenaline gauge fills up for each of them

  • Chain assassination: after making a successful silent kill, Eivor throws an ax at a nearby enemy
  • Muffled fall: Eivor automatically performs a roll when it falls from an excessive height, decreasing the damage taken
