Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Potion Of Strength Hoard Treasure counts as one of the Artifacts you can find when you reach the second region in Ireland (Meath) as part of the Wrath of the Druids DLC, and it is also the third and last Hoard Treasure in this area.
Furthermore, the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Wrath Of Druids Potion Of Strength Hoard Treasure is a bit more difficult because, unlike the previous two in Meath (Brega Hoard Map Treasure and Southern Ui Neill Hoard Map Treasure); this time, we won’t have an actual map, but a riddle left by a druid. Or a note if you want.
If you don’t know how to solve the Potion Of Strength riddle or puzzle in AC Valhalla’s first DLC, simply follow this guide, and I’ll tell you what you have to do.
Additionally, you’ll learn about one of the best AC Valhalla Easter Eggs.
Potion Of Strength Hoard Riddle Location
The Potion Of Strength Hoard Riddle or note (since it’s not a map) is quite easy to locate while exploring Meath.
And also easy to collect.
You can find it on the large island on the southwestern border between Meath and Connacht. You can see its exact location on my map below.
When you get to the location on my map, you’ll find an empty house.
Too empty if you ask me. But this house has a funny story.
So, enter through the front door like a gentleman/lady since the door is made of sticks. Then look around because there is a lot of loot to be found here.
If you turn right the moment you enter, you’ll see a table and, on it, the Potion Of Strength Note.
Below you can see the said table and the artifact on it.
Awesome! Now take a closer look at the table behind, and you’ll see a boar. This is quite important as you are about to learn.
The next step is to read the note, and you’ll find out that the druid in this house made a potion of strength using a recipe he had from a cousin in Francia.
The problem here is that he did not use the same herbs. So our druid decided to try the potion anyway on some rocks.
Here is the actual note.
From it, you can also learn that the druid went north from your current location. On the same island.
So start moving, and you’ll eventually find a circle made of stones. One of them, however, as you can see, fell on a man. Which happens to be our druid.
Under the stone, you can see his corpse, and next to it, the Potion Of Strength Hoard Treasure. But there is something else you need to know about this event.
The Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Potion Of Strength Hoard Treasure is actually an Easter Egg. One of the best in the game. This is a reference to Asterix and Obelix, the Gaulish warriors created by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo. There are three hints that point to this Easter Egg:
- The boar inside the druid’s house is a reference to Obelix, who constantly eats them
- The druid’s cousin in Francia is, in fact, Getafix
- Finally, the Potion of Strenght is the one that Asterix consumes whenever he fights the Romans
Unfortunately, although the druid had the correct recipe because he did not use the correct herbs, he tried to lift the stone, which fell on him. The good thing, though, is that because of his accident, you got the Norse-Gael Scheme (Arms) and a new tattoo.
