Assassin's Creed Valhalla Book of Knowledge Guide: How To Gain Abilities For Eivor

Hidden Secrets

Assassin's Creed Valhalla has now released all over the world.

Ubisoft steered away from their yearly model of games, and they are gearing up to make Valhalla the best Assassins Creed title.

Similar to its predecessor in Assassin's Creed Odyssey; the game has an ample focus on collecting gear, weapons, and armor.

One combat aspect that was introduced in Odyseey was abilities.

Throughout that game, players were able to unlock certain moves such as the Spartan Kick and so on.

At first, it did not appear these were in Valhalla, but they are!

They are just trickier to come across, but they are worth the adventure to obtain. 



Over the course of the game, you are probably going to encounter some hidden chests and incredible loot. 

Some of this loot will be marked by a golden book icon.

These books are called the 'Books of Knowledge' and can be found all over the map.

Finding these books will unlock ranged or melee combat abilities.

Similar to Odyseey, you can only equip four at a time; and will need to gain enough experience in order to use one. 

Check out the full list of Books of Knowledge you will be able to find in Valhalla courtesy of!
