Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Twirling Targets: How To Get The Best Score

Published

on

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Twirling Targets is another Ostara Festival timed quest you can play as many times as you want in order to get Festival Coins that can be spent at Norvid’s shop.

Luckily for us, unlike Let’s Get Festive which is currently bugged, Ubisoft did a good job with this one, and even though you won’t encounter any difficulties in completing it; there are several things you should know especially if you want to get the best score in this Archery Challenge.

So, below I’ll share with you several tips and tricks you can use when playing the AC Valhalla Twirling Targets Archery Challenge.

How to Start Twirling Targets In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

The Ostara Festival Twirling Targets quest is picked up by talking to the not-so-cute Thyra.

She is standing on a wooden bridge just behind Eivor’s longhouse.

Due to her size (as you can see below) she’s impossible to miss.

Meet Thyra

The idea here is quite simple. Talk to Thyra, and start the Ostara Festival Archery Challenge to win prizes.

Now, before moving to the hints I want to share with you; it is worth knowing that the prizes you can win are Festival Coins, so don’t expect a fancy new weapon, or a new headgear, because it’s not the case.

AC Valhalla Twirling Targets Archery Challenge Prizes

So, now that we know what we get, let’s see how these prizes are determined in AC Valhalla.

Well, the answer here is pretty simple. You’ll get a specific amount of Festival Coins depending on your final score, which I will cover below.

As such here is what to expect:

  • 0 Festival Coins – Are awarded if you score less than 500 points. That’s because you’ll have to work a bit harder
  • 10 Festival Coins – To get these you need between 500 and 999 points. You’re getting there but you have to focus more
  • 20 Festival Coins – These are awarded if you manage to score 1000 and 1099
  • 30 Festival Coins – For these, you need a score between 1100 and 1199 points
  • 40 Festival Coins – Only true archers can get these because only they can score over 1200 points

And that’s about it. Now let’s see how to get the highest score in the AC Valhalla Twirling Targets contest.

How To Get The Best Score In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Twirling Targets Archery Challenge

As said to get the best score in this challenge there are some ground rules you have to follow.

The most important one is to know your targets because you have only 2 minutes and not all targets award the same number of points. Or simply put the green ones suck, while the red ones are the most important.

Here is how many points you get depending on the targets’ colors:

  • Green Targets – 10 Points
  • Orange Targets – 15 Points
  • Red Targets – 25 Points

So, as you can see the red targets are those you want to aim for; however, in order to make the most points try to prioritize them based on the points they award.

Again, simply put, you’ll want to start with the red ones, then focus on yellow targets, and only if you have enough time, you should look for the green ones.

This way, even if you miss the bonus scores offered by hitting all targets during a twirl, you’ll get more points.

Another trick you have to know is that you don’t have to charge your bow and your current bow will be replaced by a Hunter Bow.

If you try to charge it, you’ll waste a lot of time, so don’t do that unless you want to lose.

Now, you’ll also want to tweak your controls a bit, if your crosshair is moving too fast. This can help you improve your accuracy and you’ll be surprised how good you are at shooting these targets.

Finally, learn the colors of all targets and their locations.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Twirling Targets Best Score

Learn the colors!

They do not change and you can see them above. When a new spin starts, always have your bow pointing at a red target, and if it turns towards you, then you saved a couple of seconds.

Keep in mind that winning the AC Valhalla Twirling Targets Archery Challenge (aka scoring above 1200 points) also allows you to unlock Thyra the Sharp Shooter for the Ostara Viking Brawl, and you’ll face her during the 4th round.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Viking Brawl: How To Win All Rounds, Rewards, Hidden Opponents & Game Crashes

Published

on

By

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Viking Brawl activity is back for the Ostara Festival, but with some tweaks, hidden opponents, and obviously some game crashes (as in Error CE-34878-0) that Ubisoft is trying to address as soon as possible.

Before they do that; however, it’s worth learning one or two things about this infamous error as well as how to win all rounds and how to unlock 3 hidden fighters.

The AC Valhalla Viking Brawl, if you don’t remember from the last festival; is a fighting tournament with some really interesting mechanics and a lot of prizes to win.

As such, the Ostara Festival Viking Brawl is a good source for Festival Tokens you can spend and Norvid’s Shop, but before doing this there are several tricks you should know in order to make the most out of this competition.

And I’ll try to cover all of them below.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Ostara Viking Brawl

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Viking Brawl Hidden Opponents

The first thing you should know is that the AC Valhalla Ostara Brawl includes three hidden fighters you can unlock.

Obviously, you can win the competition without unlocking them, and there are no penalties for doing this; but it’s more interesting to fight some cool quest-givers.

Because of this, before attempting the tournament you want to complete several small tasks:

Keep in mind that these changes will be permanent meaning that these unlockable brawlers will be your opponents the moment you unlock them.

AC Valhalla Ostara Brawl Rewards

Good so now that you know how to unlock the secret brawlers, let’s see how the AC Valhalla Ostara Brawl Rewards work.

The brawling competition is based on rounds, and after each round; you’ll have to bet your previous earning.

As an example, if you win the first round you’ll get 10 Festival Tokens; then you will be asked if you want to bet those Tokens.

If you agree, you’ll enter the second round, and you have the chance to get an additional 10 Tokens by defeating the next opponent. If you lose, well, you can say goodbye to those 10 Tokens.

However, you also have to chance to step away after the first round, and in this case, you’ll get to keep your 10 Tokens.

One thing worth knowing is that there is a total of 10 rounds in the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Ostara Brawl and the maximum amount of Tokens you can win is 140.

Additionally, since the brawlers grow in difficulty; the number of Tokens you receive also increases as you can see below:

  • Rounds 1 & 7 – 10 Festival Tokens
  • Rounds 8 & 9 – 20 Festival Tokens
  • Final Round (10) – 30 Festival Tokens

Now, if we do some math we can see that the total amount is 140 shiny tokens to be won in this tournament; obviously by becoming the champion.

How To Win All AC Valhalla Ostara Viking Brawl Rounds

Brawling in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is not something new, and if you already completed the game, then you most likely know how it works.

Except that for the Ostara Brawl several tweaks have been made. Because of this here are some tips and trick you should know:

  • There are 10 rounds to be won and the final opponent is Goliath. He is the most difficult one
  • Since the first few opponents are easy to defeat; save your rations
  • Always stock up on rations and don’t enter the tournament without them
  • You can’t use weapons but your skills matter; meaning that the higher is your level the better are your chances to win the competition
  • Perfect dodging an unblockable attack is key because it slows down your opponent; allowing you to counterattack
  • After each round, Eivor is healed; so don’t waster rations if your opponent is almost defeated
  • Starting the sixth round you won’t be able to use focus anymore; which means that you can’t target your opponent. Always keep your eyes on him by moving the camera accordingly
  • Stamina is extremely important, so don’t waste it unless you are sure you land a hit
  • To recover stamina, move around the arena but don’t run
  • Finally, most opponents hit hard but they are slow, and this gives you a lot of time to move behind them and land additional punches

Keep these in mind and you’ll become the brawl champion, assuming the game doesn’t crash. This brings us to the next topic.

AC Valhalla Game Crashes & Error CE-34878-0

Ostara Viking Brawl quest caused a lot of problems for players who reported game crashes. This specific Assassin’s Creed Valhalla error is known as CE-34878-0, and it seems that it occurs quite frequently on PlayStation 4, especially between the Viking Brawl rounds.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Crash Error CE-34878-0

If this happens to you, then you should know that Ubisoft devs are aware of it and a hotfix was already deployed on Ubisoft’s servers.

The AC Valhalla crash error CE-34878-0 fix; however, disabled the Ravensthorpe decorations for the Let’s Get Festive quest.

This means, that you won’t be able to complete the said quest until later this week; but the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Error CE-34878-0 should occur less frequently.

Assuming you still get this error, the best thing you can do is to avoid the Viking Brawl competition and wait for the update Ubisoft promised:

“We’re aware of increased instances of crashes in and around Ravensthorpe since the release of Title Update 1.2.0. We’re deploying a server-side hotfix to address a rise in crashing near Ravensthorpe. Settlement decorations will be temporarily removed and Ostara Festival quests involving decorations will not be completable. Thanks for your patience as our team releases a permanent fix soon!”

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Egg Hunt: How To Find All Baskets Of Eggs

Published

on

By

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Egg Hunt is the most entertaining Ostara Festival quest introduced by Ubisoft‘s Easter event celebration, and it is worth playing if you want to find 15 Baskets of Eggs and also get several Festival Coins to spend at Norvid’s Shop.

Unlike the Firepits we had to find for Ake as part of the Spiritual Defense quest, the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Baskets of Eggs locations do not appear on your map, and the only ways to find them is by either deciphering a series of riddles or by using a guide such as the one below.

The first method; however, only works for 6 AC Valhalla Baskets of Eggs; because you see, our quest giver below won’t tell you where to find all of them.

Regardless though, I will help you get all Easter Eggs in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla so let’s start our Egg Hunt by meeting Alwin.

All Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Baskets Of Eggs Locations

Now, as usual, in order to make this AC Valhalla Ostara Eggs locations guide as useful as possible; I included a series of screenshots showing where to find the said eggs as well as hints that can help you spot them faster.

Since their locations do not appear on your map, adding additional images won’t help, so make sure you follow the steps below.

Also, even though Alwin provides riddles that can guide you to 6 Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Eggs Baskets, you’ll need to find the rest by yourself.

Good, so let’s meet our quest giver and start the Ostara Festival Egg Hunt!

How to Start The Egg Hunt In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

To begin your Easter Egg hunt, head to the Ostara Festival area, east of Eivor’s settlement.

Here, you’ll need to find Alwin who is a very friendly fellow and a time-waster judging by how he spends his free time.

Or simply put, Alwin below likes to do nothing, except for standing in front of his cottage.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Egg Hunt Baskets of Eggs Locations

Hello bored fellow! Show me your eggs!

After you talk to Alwin, he’ll provide a couple of riddles.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Egg Hunt Riddles

To read these, open your inventory, then your satchel, then navigate to the Quest Items window.

There are three new scrolls you should be able to see.

The first one basically gives you an overview of the task at hand, and it reads:

“The hunt is on and the eggs are hidden. For most of them, you’ll need your vision. Six of them will get a clue. The other nine will be up to you. When all fifteen eggs you have found, return them to Alwin, safe and sound.”

The last two scrolls provide the actual riddles for the Egg Hunt. There are 3 on each page for a total of 6:

  • A symbol of conquerors to the greatness they aspired. It stands now in ruin, their rule long expired
  • Old, new, and some long since rotten. Here they lie gone, not forgotten
  • Music merriment and mead abound. But keep your wits, there are eggs to be found
  • With a thunderous roar, I carve the land. Go over me and you’ll find yourself with a fall unplanned
  • Lay down your arms, your battles done. Drink and feast till up comes the sun. A word to the wise, there’s more than one
  • Our door to travel and trade, it is vital to launch and raid

Good, so these are Alwin’s riddles and as said they are quite pointless since they lead you to 6 out of 15 Baskets of Eggs.

So, since the game doesn’t provide additional details, let’s start finding them one by one.

Basket Of Eggs 1 – On Alwin’s House

The first Basket of Egg is quite easy to find because it sits on Alwin’s house.

Simply climb the roof and collect it.

Congrats, Viking! You found all hidden Baskets Of Eggs for the Ostara Festival!

Now, head back to Alwin who will ask you to show him your eggs!

No, seriously, he does say that. However, before dropping your underwear, make sure you grab the 140 Festival Tokens and spend them at Norvid’s Shop.

Then you can also try and kick Alwin The Egg Collector’s butt in the Ostara Brawl because you just unlocked him.
