[GUIDE] : How to beat Ivar and complete the quest “Regicide” in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla? Part two
attack discreetly or not and kill Ynir or keep him alive.
Whatever your choices, if you choose to attack stealthily, Ivar will crack and launch the assault a few seconds later. And Ynir will eventually perish, no matter what.
Find Ivar and talk to him
Follow the quest marker to Ledecestre using your mount. Once nearby, locate the area where Ivar is hiding to talk to him.
Ivar will be at the top of the tower. Put on your hood to avoid being spotted and climb it. Once at the top, talk to Ivar.
After seeing Ceolbert die before your eyes during the main mission “The bloody path to peace“, Follow Ivar while riding one of the horses in the camp (picture1). Follow him to the entrance of Caustow Castle, then climb to the top of the hill where Ivar will be waiting for you (picture2). By discussing again with this character, you will launch the assault against the forces of King Rhodri (picture3).
During the first part of the assault, approach the oil cart and interact with it to move it to the drawbridge (picture4). As usual, kill the enemies who will try to prevent your progress (picture5) and raise your shield with each volley of arrows that your enemies throw at you (picture6).
After reaching your goal, move away from the oil cart and throw an arrow or a torch at it to blow up the castle door (picture7). Enter inside and then go directly to your left, you will find several jars of oil on the ground (picture8). Take one of them and walk to the second door that you will have to detonate (picture9).
In the last part of the castle, you will have to draw your bow and shoot the two mechanisms located to the left and right of the drawbridge to lower it (picture10). Use your vision of Odin so that these mechanisms are more easily visible (picture11). After knocking down the drawbridge, kill the enemies on your way and break down the door behind which King Rhodri will be located (picture12).
During the cutscene, Ivar will end King Rhodri’s reign and ask you to take him with you (picture13). Lift Rhodri’s body and exit the room, then place it on your horse (picture14). Climb on your mount and follow Ivar through the mountains (picture15). A new cutscene will begin and Ivar will perform the Blood Eagle ritual on Rhodri.
You will then learn that it was actually Ivar responsible for the death of Ceolbert and a fight to the death against this character will begin right after this cutscene.
Stay a good distance from the Boss then roll when he rushes over you. Take advantage of being behind his back to inflict a few blows on him before taking your distance (picture16). Always keep stamina to dodge its charge and its projectiles (picture17). AT Half the fight, Ivar will grab you and you will fall in the second part of the arena (picture18).
Then repeat the same process to overcome the boss. Once the fight is over, you will have a choice to make (picture19):
- Choice n ° 1: Send Ivar to Valhalla
- Choice n ° 2: Priver Ivar du Valhalla
Then go northwest of Quatford, north of Wenlocan Abbey, and enter the longhouse (picture20), the building in which Bishop Deorlaf and Ubbe will be waiting for you (picture21).
During this conversation, an important choice will take place (pictures22 to24). If you lie to Ubbe, he will be furious to find out later in the story. AT Conversely, if you choose to tell him the truth, he will thank you for it and you will get a silver ring from him after the act takes place in Jorvik.
- Priver Ivar du Valhalla / Ivar had a beautiful death (↓Ubbe)
- Send Ivar to Valhalla / Ivar had a bad death (↓Ubbe)
- Priver Ivar du Valhalla / Ivar had a bad death (↑Ubbe)
- Send Ivar to Valhalla / Ivar had a beautiful death (↑Ubbe)
How to complete the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla “Regicide” quest
Regicide is the fifth quest of the arc of the saga The Book of Dragons d’Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Here is a step by step guide to the quest ” Regicide ”In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. We will detail everything you need to know about this quest, including how to attack Rhodri Castle and how to defeat Ivar.
Part of: The Book of Dragons
Chapter 3: Eivor and Ivar attack Caustow Castle for revenge.
This quest begins just southwest of Wesberie. Follow Ivar to begin the quest.
Talk to Ivar
You will eventually reach Rhodri Castle. It’s time to plan an attack. Speak to Ivar when you return to Eivor’s controls.
If you are ready, tell him that you are ready to attack the castle. Here you have to defeat the enemies in this area and then interact with the oil cart. Advance it towards the objective marker.
Breaking down the front door
When a red circle appears, press L1 / LB to hang on so the arrows don’t damage you so much. Bring the Oil Cart to the Castle Gate and turn it on by pressing Triangle / Y on the back of it.
Breaking down the interior door
Go inside. You can fight enemies here, but you don’t necessarily need to – head over to the teal objective marker and look to the left for red explosive pots. Take one to the castle gate and throw it at the gate to destroy it.
Pull on the links to lower the drawbridge
Now go deeper into the castle to the drawbridge. Look at the left and right sides of the drawbridge to find its links – pull the two links with arrows to lower the bridge.
Enter the dungeon
Head to the bridge and destroy the three enemies (including an elite one) in front of the door on the other side. Then force the door to reach the dungeon.
Head inside and a cutscene will begin. You will witness the fight between Ivar and Rhodri.
When prompted, you will have the choice of Rhodri’s fate:
- Let him die
- Let him go
- Finish him off
Whatever your choice, Ivar will have other plans for his enemy.
Follow Ivar with Rhodri
After that, carry Rhodri and follow Ivar to a nearby lookout.
When you arrive, a cutscene will begin. You will learn here that it was Ivar who killed Ceolbert and rightly so, Eivor will not be happy about it. You must then fight Ivar.
Ivar is a companion you know for the whole game at this point. It’s time to take him out for what he did to Ceolbert.
- His weak points are his right leg and his left arm. Hit them with an arrow to take out his stun bar.
- He uses two axes to attack: he uses a very large red rune attack – be sure to dodge this attack as you cannot block it.
- The rest of his moves are moves you’ve seen other enemies do – he’ll dash left and right, then glide over you, shoot off the ground at you, do spinning swipes.
- He’s really good at dodging, so don’t spam the attack button – try to parry his attacks, then attack in those openings.
- If you find yourself on the ground, he will jump and slam your back – try to get up quickly to avoid these attacks.
Two-thirds of the way into the fight he’ll ask to speak – stay on your toes as you’ll soon see an option to dodge that you need to hit. Don’t worry if you miss it though, as it doesn’t cause too much damage.
Remove the last third of his health just like you removed the first two-thirds. A cutscene will start when you defeat him. Here you can choose to send him to Valhalla or deprive him of Valhalla.
- If you send Ivar to Valhalla : Ivar will simply die
- If you deprive Ivar of Valhalla : Ivar will die and you will see Ubbe at the end of the quest. If you confess to him that you deprived Ivar of Valhalla, you will fight him with your bare hands. You can lie to him by telling him that he died in honor in order to avoid this fight.
Talk to Deorlaf
Return to Quatford and speak to Deorlaf in the longhouse to break the sad news of Ivar’s death to him.
What to say to Ubba about his brother Ivar
When Ubba asks you about Ivar’s death, you can either tell him that Ivar had a beautiful death (which is a lie), that Ivar had a bad death (which is the truth), or that he wanted death (which is a half-truth). If you lie to Ubba, you’ll see him again in a not-so-great way later in the game. If you choose to tell him the truth, he’ll be pleased with your honesty.
You will then attend Ivar’s funeral and the quest will end along with the Book of Dragons saga. You will have to go and do your report with Randvi.
