Flyting in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is a whole strange activity - rhyming competitions with other vikings in which you battle wits in order to increase your charisma and speaking ability. Finding flyters in Valhalla isn’t easy though, so even if you like your chances in a medieval rap battle, discovering them is a whole other challenge. Fortunately, we’ve listed all flyting locations and answers for you below, allowing you to confront and conquer the best rhymers across the land.
All Flyting Locations in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
There’s flyting opportunities located in all the major locations in Valhalla, and though the majority of them are in England, you’ll also find them back in Norway and Valhalla itself. We’ve laid them all out below by region, along with the answers themselves! Those you’ve already discovered will be marked on your map by a smiling mask icon with an arrow pointing down on the forehead.
Norway Flyting Locations and Answers
Norway is the first place you’ll likely encounter flyting, but either way, we’ve laid out the few locations of interest just below for you to check out, as well as the answers to the flyting itself!
- Alvis (Rygjafylke): Find him just after you land in Rygjafylke in the game’s intro and talk to him. This serves as the tutorial to Flyting itself.
- I’ll recall what you’ve taught ‘ere I enter the fray.
- Then I’ll tell you you’ve nothing inside of your skull.
- I will flyt you with flourish and best you with flair!
- Manning, Fighter of Wolves (Stavanger): Manning is behind the docks at Stavanger town on the South-West island.
- What you make up in muscles, you're lacking in spine.
- They seem perfectly placed to give children a scare.
- No, you're quite like your arms: just incredibly thick.
England Flyting Locations
England is where the majority of flyters are waiting for you, what with the English being so sarcastic and prone to confrontation. We’ve laid out all twelve locations and the answers for you, as well as the occasional other hoops that the game makes you jump through.
- Hogg the Burly (Oxeneforda/Oxenefordscire): Hogg is hanging around Oxeneforda in West Oxenefordscire, usually on the North side of the village.
- O, you're barely an insect, a fly that I'll swat.
- You're possessed of a baldness that scared off your hair.
- You've the brain of a donkey to challenge a Norse.
- Fergal the Faceless (Grantebridge/Grantebridgescire): This is pretty easy to find and to handle. On the East side of Grantebridge in East Grantebridgescire is a woman standing in front of a small house. Take the key she offers you, go inside and try flyting against the mysterious voice. There’s actually no correct solution here; Fergal is an idiot who can’t flyte to save his life. Whatever you answer, he’ll get flustered and eventually run off, leaving you the victor.
- Augusta the Cheerful (Lunden): Augusta is on the far West side of Lunden (or London), by some stables close to the river Thames. Here the gimmick of flyting is reversed; you’ll have to praise him as eloquently as possible to win.
- You're the picture of elegance, beauty, and grace.
- O, your valor's the subject of story and song.
- It is truly a pleasure, my partner's sublime.
- Lady Ellette (Colcestre/Essex): The good lady is on the North-East side of Colcestre town in central Essex, usually to the left of Colcestre Barricks.
- For they put all who hear them to sleep.
- I’ll defeat you and banish all doubt.
- Lend a salve, for your words make me ill.
- Brother Quiescis (Canterbury/Cent): This monk is in central Canterbury in the centre-right of the county of Cent. He won’t speak himself, having another person do his flyting for him, but the principle is just the same.
- Though you speak through another, your flyting’s still poor.
- Though you choose to be quiet, your folly is loud.
- With such drivel to speak, I see why you keep mum.
- Fenn the Wistful (Hamtunscire): Though technically in Hamtunscire, it’s easiest to find Fenn if you got to the city of Wincestre and head directly North, just to the left of the farms and fields on the city’s border. You’ll have barely left before you find him - he really isn’t far away.
- Nay, one thousand's a pittance, it's closer to ten.
- It is not mine to judge, only fill up the graves.
- To ensure that I'll sit in Valhalla one day.
- Chadwick, Monger of Gossip (Northwic/East Anglia): In the middle of East Anglia is a small island surrounded by rivers that holds the settlement of Northwic. Chadwick is a gossip flyter found on the East side of town. Humiliate him and move on.
- Then you're speaking to fools, and their knowledge is flawed.
- And they're surely mistaken, I'm known for my might.
- Then you've clearly misheard them, my wit is immense.
- Ove the Scarred (Quatford/Sciropescire): Way over in East Sciropescire is the town of Quatford, with a river running past it. Head to the left side of the river to find the brute Ove. Even once you’ve won against him, he’ll demand a fistfight, which you’ll need to claim victory in.
- And your thick little skull's fit for grinding my axe on.
- Test your might against mine and we'll see how you do.
- If it's fighting you want, I shall take you on now.
- Jungulf (Repton/Ledecestrescire): Repton’s at North-North-West Ledecestrescire, close to the tiny island of Woden’s Eye. Jungulf is close to the river itself, and this one is just a straightforward flyting contest.
- O, to beat such a braggart will surely be fun.
- You're a weakling, a milksop, a cadger, a louse.
- Your pride is appalling and your rhyming is worse.
- Stigr the Amorous (Hemthorpe/Snotinghamscire): We’re headed to the North for these last three. Hemthorpe is in North Snotinghamscire, on the final curve of the river that runs up the middle of the county. Stigr is on the East side of Hemthorpe, and he’ll even offer to take you to bed afterwards. Don’t worry, there’s no effect on your charisma either way.
- Yes, with words I'll ensare you and put you to bed.
- I'm as good with my lips as I am with my tongue.
- While I doubt you can take me, I'll give you a go.
- Hertha the Very High (Jorvik): Now these are just getting silly. Hertha is in East Jorvik, close to the top of the “K” on the map, and she likes to shout challenges at you from on top of a wall. Of course, that in no way affects a person’s flyting ability, so razz her and go find your final opponent in the region.
- The one fool that I see here is up on that wall.
- Then enjoy while you can, a great fall is at hand.
- What's it like feigning hugeness? You're naught but a gnome.
- Borghild the Alewife’s Bane (Picheringa/Eurviscire): Head to the town of Picheringa in East Eurviscire, just North of the river and West of Scarborough. Borghild is on the West side of town, and though drinking is involved, that’s not part of the contest.
- Your face brings to mind the arse-end of a horse!
- Now to look upon you leaves both my eyes in pain.
- You've drunk far too much ale, now, you're just telling lies.
Asgard Flyting Locations
Asgard might be full of powerful, intelligent beings, but there’s little flyting to be found here except for one challenge. Despite playing as a different character, yes, the charisma you gain here carries over to Eivor in the main world.
- Thor (Asgard): It’s Thor himself! Head directly South from Asgard to the clifftops at the bottom, where there’s the least distance to the Southernmost island. Interact with them to summon the god of Thunder and talk him down.
- O’ beware what you ask for, I will finish the fight.
- I'm as wise as an owl, you're a fool of a god.
- Well, your victory's not what my visions portend.
Jotunheim Flyting Locations
Assuming you’ve done all the other flytes, this is the last one, and it’s a pretty crazy one. Again, the charisma you earn here will translate to Eivor, and likewise, Eivor’s charisma works for the character you play in Jotunheim.
- Ratatosk (Jotunheim): Your final flyter foe is, no joke, a squirrel. Head directly East from Thrym’s House in the middle of the map until you reach the edge of the woods, you’ll see Ratatosk the Squirrel sitting on a rock. Talk to him to begin the ultimate boss flyte.
- I should like to see you try.
- They're too dull to conquer me.
- I grow weary of your squeak.
