Where can you find the Ulfberht’s Sword in AC Valhalla?
You will get the Ulfberht’s Sword in AC Valhalla after defeating the champion in River Rhine. The champion is inside the church near the River Rhine. But before luring out the Champion of the River Rhine, you first need to defeat two Captains. These come in the form of an elite soldier unit, and they can be found in any military location along the Rhine. The spawn location of the Captains is random, but since they’re confined to military locations; the locations are –
- Fort Ehrenfels in the Northwest region of the River Rhine
- Rhine Fortification in the Northwest region of the River Rhine
- Fortified Ruins in the West region of the River Rhine
- Katzenelnbogen in the South region of the River Rhine
After killing any two Captains, you can begin to look for the Champion, who can be found at the Ferrieres monastery. The Ferrieres monastery is in the far east of the Rhine. You will need to fight your way through the soldiers at the monastery before you reach the main church at the top. When you enter the church, a cutscene will begin; and a boss fight with the Champion will be following this.
How to get the Ulfberht’s Sword in AC Valhalla?
The fight with the Ulfberht’s Sword’s Champion will be much easier than the Lugh’s Spear Champion. This is mostly because the Ulfberht Champion isn’t wearing any armor. In standard settings, you will be able to kill the Champion in two or three hits by first hitting on his weak point on his left shoulder, and then executing a stun attack. Due to lack of armor, you will inflict massive damage. Simultaneously, you will also be able to negate his swift attacks.
If you’re fighting the Ulfberht Champion on higher difficulty settings, you’ll need to be more careful to avoid his attacks. He will spam his special red rune aura attack, which comes in the form of a spinning attack with a reasonably large reach. One hit from this will knock you down on high-difficulty settings, while also inflicting massive damage, so you’ll need to avoid it at all costs.
Alongside the red rune aura attack, the Ulfberht Champion will spam chain attacks. An orange aura will be indicating these attacks. These are less deadly than the red rune aura attacks, but they can still inflict a lot of damage if you’re caught off guard and hit by all of the attacks that are chained. You can stop the orange aura attack with a block or parry, but you’ll need to dodge or roll out of the way of any red rune aura attacks. Alternatively, you can use a special ability of your own to interrupt the red rune attack.
The Ulfberht Champion is a glass cannon opponent who can swiftly inflict massive amounts of damage in close combat if you fail to block, parry, or dodge away from his attacks. But because of his lack of armor, it will only take relatively few hits from you to defeat him. A string of special attacks will be more than enough to deplete most of the Ulfberht Champion’s health.
As soon as you defeat the Champion, you will receive the Ulfberht’s Sword.
What are the additional rewards for defeating the Champion in AC Valhalla?
On defeating the Champion, you will also unlock three new quests for each River Raids region in England, Ireland, and Francia. This happens when you return to Vagn.
