The talking Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Dead Body you’ll meet or hear in the Sciropescire territory allows you to trigger another World Event or side-quest if you want, named The Puppeteer; and let me tell you that while The King Of The Hill was the stupidest character in the game, the puppeteer is the biggest scammer.
The event though, it’s hilarious and rather easy to complete if know where to find the swindler.
As usual, we will deal with this scammer and put an end to his scheme, because Eivor can’t stand scammers, nor is he that stupid to be fooled by one.
Or at least not by this one.
So, let’s deal with the AC Valhalla Dead Body mystery together.
Where To Find The Talking Dead Body In AC Valhalla
To start this event, first, you’ll need to reach Sciropescire, then you’ll have to raid Wenlocan Abbey.
As you can see on my map below, the world event is west of the said abbey which is rather small.
Make sure you deal with the Saxons there, then go west.
How To Solve The Talking Dead Body Mystery
Right, so at the location marked on the map, you’ll find a locked door and in front of it a dead body.
But this body can talk, which is impossible right?
You can see it below and the first thing you’ll have to do is to interact with it.
While listening to the talking dead body, you’ll actually start realizing that you are about to be scammed.
The long story short is that the soul of the poor fellow in front of the gate, can’t rest unless you give him something, and by that I mean some of your hard-earned silver.
A nice plan right?
Ok, but the problem is that the locked door behind the talking body can’t be opened without a key, and that key is behind the grate.
This means that we need to find another way inside, to solve this mystery.
From your current location, climb the small hill above the tunnel, or the locked door.
Several steps away you will see a house and inside it is a shelf you can move.
Once you do that, you’ll find a hidden entrance behind a wall you can destroy. Identical to the one in my screenshot.
In the first room get the Opal from the table and check the barrel in the corner for some silver.
Now head down the ladder and follow the tunnel that will lead you to…the swindler!
Here you’ll want to loot the chest on the left side to complete the mystery; and as can guess, the thief won’t like that, so he’ll attack you.
Good thing he’s good at scamming not at fighting.
Dispatch him, then slide through the hole in the next wall, get the key, and open the locked door to get out.
