Aelfwyn of Edmund’s Hope is an Assassin’s Creed Valhalla nun with some anger issues you’ll most likely find in the East Anglia region. Dealing with her will allow you to solve a new mystery or a World Event named A Blood Hymn for Edmund. This AC Valhalla quest is very short and can be compared to The Devout Troll.
Although the latter is a bit longer, the NPC, or Aelfwyn, is similar to the never-angry monk. But Aelfwyn has a more direct approach, and there are no choices here. So let’s see what’s her problem.
AC Valhalla A Blood Hymn for Edmund World Event Location
As you can see on the map below, Aelfwyn is found in the southern part of East Anglia, close to a high point you must synchronize in this region. In fact, she is standing right under that viewpoint, and she’s impossible to miss, just like the East Anglia Hoard Map.
When you get to that location, you’ll see a partially destroyed church and, inside, an altar. Next to it is Aelfwyn—a nun. A “possessed” nun, and by that, I mean that this nun has a lot of problems and should take some anger management lessons. So, what’s up with this one?
How To Deal With the Hammer of the Heathens
Well, if you want to be prepared for what will happen next, I suggest reading the note on the altar. You can see it in the picture below.
This is the Worthful Offering, and it shows the following lines:
Take these gifts, my blood offering, as a sign of devotion to your mighty Cause. I have laid waste a dozen heathens for your greater Glory, though one crept up into the rafters to die so that you might smite him down at your leisure. May his blood and body please you, my Lord. Your most devoted apostle,
Saint Aelfwyn, Hammer of the Heathens.”
Yeah, this note tells you that Aelfwyn, or Hammer of the Heathens, is a fanatic. A crazy one, too, because if you talk to her, no matter how much Eivor tries to make her understand he doesn’t want to hurt her, this nun goes crazy and will attack you on sight. Why? Because she’s crazy, that’s why.
Now, if you think about it, the monk in Grantebridgescire was crazy as well, but at least he was calm. This nun, though, has no time to chat with you. She wants you dead. Period. So, kill her to complete this quest.
