Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Madman’s Stones is a hilarious World Event you can play in the Cent region of the video game developed by Ubisoft, and if you thought that talking to the Pig of Prophecy is weird, wait till you meet the Madman and his stones.

AC Valhalla Madman and the stones counting World Event is actually named Madness Of The Stones. It is very short and can be completed in about 2 minutes.

The problem with this event, though, is that by the time you finish it, you’ll start asking yourself if you know how to count, if the madman is mocking you, or if you are crazy.

One of these will happen.

Let’s see why.

Where To Find The Madman In AC Valhalla

In order to start this side quest, you’ll have to find the Madman located south of Saint Hadrian’s Priory.

He is very easy to locate, as you can see on my map below.

Once you get to his location, talk to him, and he’ll tell you that he needs your help.

Specifically, he wants you to help him count the stones nearby.

How To Count The Madman’s Stones

An easy objective, right? Of course.

So take a look at the circle of stones next to our Madman and start counting, then tell him how many stones are in the circle.

Start counting. Or don’t

If you were wrong (and you will be), count them again.

Now tell the man how many you counted, and then do it again because you see you were wrong again.

When you tell him the third time how many stones you counted, you’ll wake up, and the man will turn into a stone.

The event will also end.

What can we understand from this World Event, you ask?

That Eivor should slow down a bit on those mushrooms, that’s what.

If you ask yourself how many stones are in the circle, well, there is no correct answer to this question because they are randomly generated, and the number changes whenever you talk to the Madman.

The good thing is that you are not crazy.

The bad thing is that you’ll never know how many stones are in the circle. Or at least I don’t.

That’s how you complete the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Madness Of The Stones quest; however, now you may want to help a boy and his rather large pet.

Have Something To Add? Do It Here:

  1. This event must surely have been inspired by the stories of uncountable stones in British folklore. The story goes that if you try to count the number of stones in a particular circle (there are numerous stone circles across the British Isles, many of which the tale has been told about), you will not be able to finish counting them, or get the same number if you recount. According to legend, if you count the Rollright Stones in Oxfordshire (Oxenefordscire in the game) and get the same number 3 times in a row you will be granted a wish come true.

  2. Anyone else have the screen go completely dark (only Odins sight works)… doesn’t matter if I reload or fast travel? Another Massive glitch in the game
