Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Cosplayer rages into battle as Eivor

The latest game in the Assassin’s Creed series, called Valhalla, was only recently released – but that hasn’t stopped cosplayers from already bringing the game’s characters into the real world.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will take players back to the Viking Age as Eivor, a warrior who doesn’t exactly fit the traditional, stealthy Assassin mold we’ve come to know.

Vikings weren’t particularly known for the smoke and mirrors tactics that have become a favorite of players in the AC series, so Eivor will be unlike any protagonist that’s been featured before – and it’s looking like cosplays of the character are shaping up to be the same way.

Just because Eivor is a Viking, doesn’t mean they can’t be stealthy, though.

One of the best takes on the male version of Eivor we’ve seen comes from ‘Taryn_Cosplay’ on Instagram, who has basically become our dimension’s version of the latest Assassin.

Taryn’s hair and beard are a dead ringer for the character, and the tunic is also an exact match down to the fold on the red cloth at his side.

An Assassin’s most important tools are the weapons they carry, and this cosplay takes that to heart with perfect recreations of Eivor’s two massive Viking axes.

The wristguards are looking ready to carry the signature Hidden Blade, which as we know from Valhalla’s devs, Eivor wears on the top of their wrist – another element that makes them different than any other protagonist in the series, so far.

Taryn even threw in the adorable raven sidekick, who we’re sure to see more of once we finally get to play the game once it comes out sometime in the 2020 holiday season.

There are still a lot of details to be revealed about the next AC game, but we do know the map will have a feature similar to Red Dead Redemption 2’s home bases in the single-player campaign.

More information is sure to be released as we get closer to the end of the year, so stick with Dexerto for all the latest Valhalla info and news as it’s released.

Until the game comes out, we’d expect to see more fantastic Viking Assassin cosplay from Taryn as the date draws near, based on his history of awesome Witcher and other video game-focused cosplay on Instagram.

How to get legendary Excalibur sword in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is home to plenty of iconic weapons from both Norse and English legends, so it was only a matter of time before players discovered the legendary Excalibur sword. 

Eivor is no stranger to wielding some incredibly powerful weapons – in fact, during your Viking adventure, you’ll encounter everything from flaming axes to Thor’s very own hammer. There’s certainly a lot of variety when it comes to choosing the perfect tool to dismember your enemies with.

While the game’s two-handed axes and razor-sharp swords prove lethal in their own right, the very best weapons are often those from legends. 

Of course, obtaining these rare items can be a little tricky, especially when they are safely tucked away in secret locations. Not only does Excalibur look incredibly cool, but it’s also devastatingly powerful. If you wish to add this legendary sword to your arsenal, then follow our guide below. 

How to find Excalibur

Excalibur Assassin's Creed Valhalla
Excalibur is one of the coolest looking weapons in the game.

In order to wield this mighty sword, you’ll first need to locate all 11 tablets that are scattered across England. The 11 tablets can be found in the following locations:

  • Red Lichen Cavern (Hamtunscire)
  • Cavern of Trials (Cent)
  • Wicean’s Cave (Eurvicscire)
  • Grime’s Graves (East Anglia)
  • Deoraby Spar Cavern (Snotinghamscire)
  • Wocig (Hamtunscire)
  • Old Cellar (Essexe)
  • Santlache Mine (Suthsexe)

Once you’ve solved each cavern’s puzzle and obtained the above tablets, you’ll need to hunt down the following three Zealots:

  • Heike (southwest of Agnitum Tower in Essexe)
  • Woden (roaming around Tonbridge Monastery in Cent)
  • Hrothgar (northeast of the High Rocks in Suthsexe)
Myrddin's Cave location

    Myrddin’s Cave can be found in the following location.

Defeating the above Zealots will reward you with the final three stone tablets. Take your stony collection over to Myrddin’s Cave in Hamtunscire (northeast of Egbert’s Stone). Simply run to the end of the cave and insert each tablet into the stone pillars. 

This will then enable you to pull Excalibur from its resting place and claim the legendary sword as your own. Excalibur has the following stats: 

  • Atk: 123
  • Stun: 133
  • Wgt: 14
  • Spd: 41
  • Crit-Pre: 86

Heavy finishers and critical hits blind all enemies around you, making it a great weapon for those looking to deliver a lot of crowd control and damage. Pair this with any armor set that boosts your crit chance to constantly blind your enemies with flashes of brilliant light.
