The Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Elderly Farmer you’ll meet in Oxenefordscire region has one of the saddest stories in the video game developed by Ubisoft. And hilarious at the same time if you pay close attention to what the blind farmer has to share with you.
This World Event must be completed in order to get 100% completion in Oxenefordscire, so in the guide below, we’ll discuss a confused and old farmer, as well as his missing daughter Rose.
Unlike the previous side-quest we have covered (Fishing Lesson), this one (which is called Nostalgia); is a bit shorter, and there are no special requirements for it.
So let’s meet the Elderly Farmer, Rose. Yeah, that’s you.
Where To Find The Blind Elderly Farmer In AC Valhalla
Ok then, so on my map below, you can see the location of the Elderly Farmer you’re looking for.
He stands on a bench in front of his house, just south of Eatun Barn. You can’t miss it because when you get close, you’ll hear him calling her daughter Rose.
Now, when you get to the blind man’s house, you can talk to him, and he will start calling you Rose.
Since Eivor has such a good heart, he’ll play along and indulge the blind farmer, who has a request. To help him carry some crates.
After the dialogue, you should read the note (Reminder) on the bench, then look around you, and on the right side, while facing the said note, you’ll see 3 crates.
Grab one of them and carry it to the shed where the farmer is working.
Place it on the ground, as you can see in my screenshot below.
Make sure the crate is placed on the piece of cloth that is highlighted.
Good job, Rose. Now, do the same with the other two.
Listen To The Elderly Farmer’s Story
Right, so this chore is completed, which means that it’s time to take a break.
Follow the blind farmer to the bench nearby and pay close attention to what he has to say.
This funny character will tell you about Rose’s mother and how they met.
He’ll also tell you about you, Rose, but the problem is that sometimes he’ll fall asleep.
The goal here is to wake him up so he can continue the tale.
Long story short, you were named after a cow.
Yeah, that’s right. Rose (that’s you) was the name of a cow. Most likely a brown one.
Grateful for your patience, the elderly farmer will offer your mother’s ring.
And here, you have two options, as you can see below.
Both of them will end the quest, but consider this. First, you are not Rose. Nor the cow. So taking the ring would mean that you fool the man.
Second, if you visit the man’s house, you will find an Old Letter From Rose (the daughter, not the cow). In that letter, it clearly states that Rose’s plan was to return home, but as you can see, she never made it.
So, Rose is most likely dead, even though the cow may still be alive.
If you decide to take the ring, you are basically stealing from a blind man and also breaking any connection he has left with Rose’s mother.
Obviously, you’ll be able to sell the ring, but the Opal inside the house should be more than enough as a quest reward.
Choose as you see fit.
That’s how you help the Elderly Farmer and play as Rose in the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Nostalgia quest. Now, I suggest focusing on Sten, who has bigger problems.
Have Something To Add? Do It Here:
If you interact with the white roses on the house near where you place the boxes, then the farmer will tell you that “your” mother is buried underneath the white-rose-covered oak tree just NW of the house. There you find 2 crosses/graves; one has a letter from the father saying he buried Rose and that he’ll never forget her.
You can return back to him after rejecting the ring, sit down to hear another story, take the ring, and place it on Rose’s grave.
If you visit the oak tree next to the house you’ll see that Rose is buried there next to her mother and you can leave the ring. You didn’t fool the old man he just needed you to go along with it so he could have a moment.
Anyone else have it glitch where you place the crates and nothing happens
Not a glitch, you have to put them on flat ground just outside the lean to, not actually under it as the instruction appears to be.
You can also give the ring to the daughter, there is a small path just off the house with two graves. one the mother, one the daughter. You can leave the ring on her grave
You look at the roses by where you put the crates down. The farmer tells you another bit of info,. Follow the clues some more, read another note hear another take and this time really finish it. It’s like the little girl that’s waiting for her father with the last leaf.
You are playing a pillaging viking… stealing a ring from a confused old man isn’t going to cost you sleep at night. At least he’s still alive!
Helpful, such a sad. Rose defintely didnt make it. Her grave is beneath the tree with her mothers grave. There is a note from the father on it.
Once you’ve listened to the first story, REFUSE the ring. The farmer then mentions the roses he and Rose planted by his wife’s grave, that they grew to cover the Oak Tree. Turn and look for that tree. You’ll find two graves, and a 3rd note on one. This was a note from the old man, who knew he was beginning to forget, telling his daughter he’d never forget her. She obviously died of that plague. Return to the old man, and he’ll tell you another story… it fades out, then cuts back at the end. You prepare to leave, and he again “remembers” to offer the ring. ACCEPT IT and you get the option to plant it in Rose’ grave, telling her “Your father wanted you to have this, Rose.”
Doesn’t add anything to the achievements – it completes once the first story is told and the ring refused the first time.
But it’s a bitter-sweet ending Ubisoft added… so long as your Eivor is not a cold-hearted one.
You don’t need to refuse the ring the first time, I found the grave after taking it from the first story and was still able to place it on the grave.
If you look under the oak tree, you find both graves. The daughter and her mother. Rose’s grave has a sad note from her father saying how he is losing his memory.
Adding on, If you look around the property and interact with the roses on the door, the Man will tell you where Rose’s mother is buried. If you go to it (an oak tree covered in white roses) You’ll find Rose’s grave with a note from the father on top. He’s not blind, he’s suffering from alzheimer
If you interact with the white roses growing on the shed where the farmer was working, he mentions his wife’s grave, where he and Rose planted a bush that grew up the tree. If you walk over to the grave, you can see there are two plots with a note on one of them.
She made it home, only to be buried next to her mother.
Quite a sad end to the event.
If you look to the left while you sitting on the bench you will see a tree with two graves under rose is buried there next to her mother bring the ring to her grave
