Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Priests’ Wrath Ivor journey continues. When I reviewed the base game last year, I couldn’t help but marvel at this one Viking epic saga A group in Norway and England. Now, the new expansion takes you to the regions of Ireland.
Priests angered It is the first of the two expansions included in Assassin’s Creed ValhallaSeason Pass (The siege of Paris Will come at a later date). It has a campaign of decent size and a huge world to explore. Dark hills, swamps and green farms await in this world. There are also loads of activities that are part of the core gameplay loop, as well as collectibles. But the question remains: Do you deserve it?
Meet the cast of characters
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Priests’ Wrath It starts when you meet Azar, the merchant who tells you about Ireland. I learned that Parade, Ivor’s cousin, has been crowned King of Dublin. After two missions, she will sail to Ireland to meet Mail himself. It is also there that you will meet Flan Sena, the historical figure who was the High King of Ireland at the time. Flan Sina supports his poet, the ex-priest Ciara.
To be clear, the supreme king does not necessarily rule a politically united country. Instead, he is more of an overlord who is honored by other little kings or little kings. You can bet that there are some political reflections and power plays as part of the plot. This becomes apparent the moment he takes Parade Ivor to Tara Hill to witness the coronation of Flan Sina. From there, you will encounter new threats.
Perhaps one good reason why it’s easy to get in and check out the expansion story is because it requires a fairly low power level. At best, Ivor is simply required to complete one of the early arcs upon his arrival in England. After that, you can head to Ireland without delving any further into the main game campaign. On the contrary, if you advance more in the base game, the enemies will upgrade to your level to offer more challenge.
Enemies in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Priests’ Wrath
Speaking of enemies, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Priests’ Wrath It has your usual group of disinterested bandits and lost knights. However, given the title of the expansion, you will definitely encounter the priest. These priests and priestesses of nature were pushed towards the fringes of Irish society as pagan beliefs gave way to Christianity. As such, the priests gathered together in direct opposition to the rule of X.
Similar to the Cosmos cult Epic The Order of the Ancients in ValhallaAnd the Priests angered She has her own sinister group known as Sons of Danu. You can expect to meet some of its members during the main story. Meanwhile, others ask you to investigate some clues, and some of them are just unlucky idiots that you may stumble upon as you wander the caves.
The main difference when it comes to these villains is that they love to use powerful hallucinogen combinations, incendiary bombs, and wild beasts. Some priests cover their weapons with poison, while others may surround them with pigs or wolves. Heck, there are even moments when expansion deals with the supernatural, like a chase streak where Ivor is after a werewolf. Becca. In general, you can expect to fight many battles with these enemies as you play the story. There is even Trials of the Morrigan, multiple short encounters where you fight priests of different kinds.
Likewise, the expansion contains some new skills and weapons for you to pick up. There are gear pieces with Kahn and Celtic attributes, as well as abilities that let you perform a crushing header, throw a smoke bomb, or summon an Irish wolf dog to fight alongside you.
Trade in distant lands
Another fixture in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Priests’ Wrath Is foreign trade. Trader Azar wants you to help Dublin thrive. To do this, you’ll need to pick up trading jobs all over Ireland. This process is a little complicated, but it works well as part of the gameplay loop.
First, you will need to scan a trading post. Next, you will have to find support for this mall located in a specific part of the map. Upon taking control of a trading position, you can use the supplies you have recovered from the raids to rebuild their functionality. In return, you’ll collect items like clothes or jewelry. The goods you collect can be delivered to Azar for rewards. These include cosmetic items such as ship designs, tattoos, and thematic gear pieces from various countries (for example, Egypt, Iberia, and Constantinople).
To give you more things to do, there are also royal requests. Think of these as being closer to A thousand eyes decades Of Rida. In every region except Dublin, you can get up to three Side Quests. Most of these tasks are “kill” X “target” tasks. However, there are additional rewards that can be obtained if you follow preconditions such as avoiding detection or not being harmed. In a way, these secondary goals are not mandatory, but trying to follow them can drastically change your approach. The rewards you get may be crafting resources or post-trade resources. As such, side attraction allows you to amass fortunes.
Apart from these, you will see the usual activities and collectibles like drinking games, saga pieces, and treasure hoards. Oh, and there are special encounters against two Drengr crazies, the giant black pig, and Balor.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Priests’ Wrath Ireland in the Viking Age
There are so many things you can do Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Priests’ Wrath. Unfortunately, there have been some minor accidents that I have experienced. For example, there were a few buggy moments during the main task that prompted me to restart from previous autosave. Likewise, some bonuses seemed to be missing (for example, a few pieces of gear once Dublin’s commercial boom increased, plus a unique bonus after completing Azar missions).
Moreover, despite your ability to passively acquire resources, the amount that can be stored in your personal chest is somewhat limited. Forgetting to pick up the loot once the box is full to its brim means losing the extra. You might find yourself logging in from time to time just to claim the goods, and it’s no different than mobile games with annoying timers. Finally, as with previous games in the franchise, this expansion tends to feel somewhat formulaic.
However, if you enjoyed the main game campaign and wanted more of Ivor’s story, then you can jump right in to explore Ireland. This time, the story and the encounters are steeped in mysticism and stories from Irish culture. Although it doesn’t touch on the modern narrative much, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: The Priests’ Wrath It gives you plenty of reasons to check out this unique depiction of the country set during the Viking Age.
