Assassins Creed Valhalla’s world is expansive and filled with secrets to discover. One of which is the rare Skadi’s Wrath bow located in the Ledecestre region. 

One of the best aspects of an open-world RPG is the level of freedom granted to players whilst they explore and discover secret locations. This is no different for Ubisoft‘s Assassins Creed Valhalla, which provides players with a magnificent world to uncover.

As players, especially in a Viking game, we expect this exploration to reward us with loot if we search in the right places. Luckily for us, Ubisoft agrees and has placed loot chests around the map in hidden locations. These chests will provide players with unique gear and weapons to aid them on their adventure.

One of these chests contains the rare Skadi’s Wrath bow, let’s check out exactly where you can find it.

Where to find Skadi’s Wrath bow in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

As with any location based hunt, you need to make sure you’re in the right place for starters. This bow can be found in the Ledecestre region of the game, where you will have to make your way into the town.

If you’re looking for the rare Skadi’s Wrath bow, here’s where you need to go.

While it’s just one of several rare pieces of gear you can find scattered around the map, this one is particularly useful because it helps your long range attack. The bog standard bow doesn’t come close in terms of stats.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to get the job done.

  1. Travel to the Ledecestre region in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
  2. Enter the town and visit the church-like building, with stain glass windows.
  3. Take out the guard outside, and enter.
  4. Attack the guards inside and head to the door with the ladder in front of it.
  5. Head up to the ladder and smash the wooden panels, granting access to a set of stairs beyond.
  6. Take the stairs to the basement and check the left side of the final room.
  7. Find the chest and open it up – to grab your new Skadi’s Wrath bow.

Below, you can see the exact stats for the Skadi’s Wrath, which is a fine line bow. It increases critical chance when hitting weak points of opponents.

It’s great to see Ubisoft scattering unique gear across the game for players to discover, like this Skadi’s Wrath bow in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. There’s nothing more satisfying than finding an upgrade for your character in a hidden location off the beaten path.

Hopefully, this guide has helped you obtain a new upgrade for Eivor on your journey through the game. There are plenty more items to uncover so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for more Valhalla guides here on Dexerto.

3 Assassin’s Creed Valhalla easter eggs you need to see

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla might not strike you as a game that blends the worlds of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, but if you look in the right place, these easter eggs can be found. 

Ubisoft’s game released alongside the Xbox Series X|S and since launch players have searched every inch of the game’s expansive world. In doing so, a number of exciting crossovers to other major franchises have been found.

Although the world of Valhalla may be set in the age of the Vikings, which is nothing remotely like the grounds of Hogwarts, there are some things you can find that blur the lines.

Valhalla’s easter eggs are spread across various regions of the game’s world.

Best easter eggs in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Harry Potter easter egg

This easter egg is located in Lunden, south-east of St Paul’s Cathedral in a small thatched building.

The building is guarded by a snake and a key is required to unlock the door. Use your Odin Sight and you’ll see a white indicator that marks the location of the key on the balcony of a nearby building.

Players will enter what looks to be Voldemort’s hideout.

Once inside, players will find an eerily dark lit room filled with strange objects. On the table directly opposite the door, there’s a readable note for players that lists each of Voldemort’s Horcruxes from the Harry Potter films. These were, of course, the powerful objects in the Deathly Hallows, which contained a hidden fragment of a wizard or witch’s soul.

Despite the room only containing the ‘Strange list’, it’s a great easter egg to discover. For any fans of the Harry Potter franchise, this is one you can’t afford to skip.

Dark Souls easter egg

It’s hard to find an open-world RPG that doesn’t have a reference to From Software’s legendary franchise. There are no complaints from fans, though, as it’s always exciting to discover a Dark Souls easter egg, especially if it’s the iconic bonfire.

Here’s exactly where to find the Dark Souls easter egg.

The bonfire is located in east Ledecestrescire in the ruins of a building. We’ve seen the same bonfire reference in countless titles and it still never gets boring. Luckily, as long as you remember to save regularly, you won’t be spawning back at the bonfire when you die.

Lord of the Rings easter egg

It would have been a missed opportunity to not include a reference to Tolkien’s Middle-Earth in the world of Valhalla. Lucky for us, Ubisoft didn’t disappoint and even added one of the Rings of Power into the game.

Here’s exactly where to find the Lord of the Rings easter egg.

The easter egg is located west of Glowecestre on the edge of the river in a small house. Players will need to locate the nearby hidden key with their Odin Sight and enter the building.

Inside there’s a readable note that reads “One of the little folk asked me to make the door smaller, as he wants to keep unruly houseguests from his house.” This is a clear reference to Tolkien’s character Bilbo Baggins.

Skull Busters
It’s amazing Ubisoft actually added a Ring of Power to the game.

Next to the note, the developers have even added a small ring in reference to the Rings of Power. It’s unfortunate that players can’t equip the ring, but honestly that’s probably for the best.
