Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s world is absolutely brimming with all kinds of deadly weaponry, but one of the best weapons is the Sepulcher Axe. Here how you can add this axe to your ever-growing arsenal. 

Everyone knows that Vikings have an insatiable thirst for bloody battles and shiny loot, so it makes sense that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla features plenty of powerful weapons. From deadly hunting bows to lightning-fast hand axes, there’s a weapon to sate every kind of playstyle. 

Just like previous Assassin Creed games, not all weapons are made equal. In fact, some are leagues better than others. However, there is one axe that towers above a lot of the game’s sharpened tools of destruction – the Sepulcher Flaming Axe.

This guide will show you how you can get your hands on this fiery weapon. 

How to find the Sepulcher Axe in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

In order to add the Sepulcher Flaming Axe to your collection, you’ll first need to reach Chapter three and do the Tilting the Balance quest line.

You will be tasked with finding the King Burgred hideout first and foremost, but there’s a very good reason to go searching chests in this area.

Here’s where you can find the flaming Sepulcher axe in Valhalla.

Below is a step-by-step guide on how to find the Sepulcher fire axe in-game. 

  1. Travel to Offchurch in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
  2. Enter King Burgred’s hideout.
  3. Take down the guards with your weapons.
  4. Enter his highness’s quarters, and tie up the king.
  5. Open up the gold chest to his left and there you have it!
  6. Collect your new Sepulcher Axe and consider it job done.

The Sepulcher Axe allows you to ignite your weapon on fire after critical hits. The flames will envelop the axe for five seconds and has a cooldown of 10 seconds.

This effectively allows you to increase your DPS when equipped with another one-handed weapon. Consider using this red hot axe if you wish to unleash a fiery inferno upon your enemies, because they won’t stand a chance.

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.

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.
