Excalibur is one of the coolest weapons in the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. It is a secret sword that unlocks the Caladfwlch trophy or achievement. Before setting on the Excalibur grab, you have to find the eleven Tablets in the game.
You can get three of the Tablets (Woden, Heike, Hrothgar) from Order of the Ancients Members, i.e. the Zealots. The other eight of these tablets can be gained from the blue Mystery Events, i.e., the Treasure of Britain quest. The quest requires you to find a treasure in the underground caves system.
Once you have gained these Tablets, you have to carve these into a stone circle in the Myrddin’s Cave in Hamtunscire. You can find the location of these caves on the map. Right at the stone, the Excalibur will appear once the Tablets are inserted. You can draw the Sword right there. Follow these steps to get the Sword of Excalibur in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: How to Get Excalibur
Step 1: Getting the Treasures of Britain
This step will get you the Eight Tablets.
The treasure of Britain is hidden at various locations scattered on the map. The photos given along the description will help you find all these locations. For getting the first eight Tablets, you have to find the Treasures of Britain at all of these locations. These are basically, underground caves and you will need a lot of platforming to gain access to these.
You have to reach the end of the cave each time where you will find the treasure. You can identify the treasure using Odin’s Sight. This will show a blue highlight around the Treasure.
Following is a description of the various caves and labyrinths were you have to amass the treasure:
Cave of Trials Tablet
On the east of Cent and Canterbury, you will be able to find the Cave of Trials near the English coastline. This is a rocky region where you have to travel in underground caves. To keep moving ahead on this route, you will require a number of keys that you will have to look for along the way. Your parkour skills will be useful here, and the cave will soon lead you to the treasure.
Grime’s Cave Tablet
Towards the east of Middletun, you will see the Grime’s Graves. This is at the shore below Brisleah Farm. Head down the shaft here. Go straight along the parkour gauntlet until you reach the back of the cave. Attack the pots there. This will make a tablet appear before you, and here, only Eivor will tell you about the treasure.
The Tablet in the Cent
Go to the Suthsexe in the southwest of Cent. You can find the Tablet that you need near the border region. The region is full of mineshafts. There is a continuous shooting of red barrels that pop open the doors. Keep traveling up to the end of this route. You will finally see a note that says you must ‘dive where iron thrives.’
Ahead of you is a water-filled room that you have to swim through. You will reach a spot where you can see iron underwater. Take a full breath capacity and dive into the underwater mine. This will lead you to the Tablet.
Cave of Poison Tablet
Go to Essexe, near a lake in the south of Colcestre. You will find a cave here which is full of poison. Go up to the end of this cave where there is a wine cellar. Here Eivor must shoot the yellow light-up caps on the barrels with her arrows. This will fill the central grate, and the Tablet will be retrieved.
Wiccan’s Cave Tablet
Go to the Wiccan’s Cave in the west of Jorvik Centre. The cave can be located in the snowy mountains of Eurvicscire. Travel along the cave up to the spot where there is a slide under an opening. This slide will take you to a little den. Go inside the den and shoot the grate to blow up the barrel. Then shoot the giant blue wall of ice, which is near the roof of the cave. This will help you reach the tablet. Finally, shoot open the lock on the front door.
There is a small cavern in the Snotinghamscire, which is in the northeast of Hemthorpe. The cavern is present in the snowy tundra. Reach this cavern and go inside it. In the first room of the cavern, you will find a pathway. You will have to climb haphazardly over the statues present there. This will take you to a tunnel in which you will find the Tablet at the end.
Red Lichen Cavern Tablet
Go to the east of Wincestre where you can find the Red Lichen Cavern. It is filled with poison pockets, which can be dispersed using the torch. Go to the end of the Cavern, where you will have to uncover the tablet. Here, throw your torch into the poison. This will clear out the area and will uncover the tablet that you have to collect.
The Tablet in the Chepeham
Now go back to the Hamtunscire in the northeast of Chepeham. Go inside the submerged room. Here you have to find the white ridges somewhere at the top of the room. Climb onto these ridges and reach the back room. Inside this room, blow up the oil barrels on the left while standing at a safe distance. This will create an opening in the wall. Slide under this opening to retrieve the table
Step 2: Getting the three Tablets from Zealots
As mentioned in the introduction, you have to get three of the tablets from the Zealotots, i.e., Woden, Heike, and Hrothgar. Zealots are a type of Order from the Ancients Member that keeps dropping the Tablets. They can be found in certain specific regions, riding horses around the scripted paths.
One of these Zealots’ characteristic features is that they will always be found riding on the roads and never anywhere else. This is because this Order of the Ancients does not ride off-road in the wild etc. The pictures below show you their locations.
You can find the Zealots on the roads that surround their locations. Therefore hey can be easily spotted there. If you do not wish to travel up to their location you can just stand at any other place and wait there until any Zealot passes along. This can be a little time-consuming wait. The map will also be helpful in finding the Zealots. A white helmet icon will appear on the map and show their position if you are within 300 meters range from them.
Zealots are very powerful and can be quite aggressive, depending on the difficulty level you are playing at. It is therefore better to play at an easier difficulty level. Once the Zealots see you they will start attacking you. You have to keep wading off their attacks until you find the right opportunity to counter-attack. The following points will be helpful while dealing with the Zealots:
- Dodge the red rune attacks
- Use the Dual-Wielding Daggers
- You can cause serious damages to them using the R1/RB Dagger Attacks. It will stun lock the enemy
For collecting the Tablets that you need, you have to find only three of the Zealots. A description of these three Zealots and their locations is given below (Woden, Heike, Hrothgar).
Woden: (Location Cent)
You can find this Zealot in the Cent region. Like any other Zealot, he can be found riding a horse on any of the roads in this region. Since he is always riding, his exact location cannot be known at all times. You should ride along every main road of the Cent region, to locate Woden.
Use the map to find the outline of the roads of Cent. When Woden is within a range of a few hundred meters a white helmet icon will appear on the map showing you his most probable position. Ride along the main road, and not in the wild, to reach the location. Once you get close to the Zealot use the R3/RS key to scan him. You must scan all the Zealots, who are the members of the order, to find Woden.
Heike: (Location Essexe)
You can find Heike in the Essexe location. She, like other Zealots, can be found riding a horse. Since she is always on a move her exact position cannot remain the same throughout. You should ride along every main road of the Essexe region, to locate Heike. Use the map to find the outline of the roads of Essexe. When Heike is within a range of a few hundred meters a white helmet icon will appear on the map showing you her most probable position.
Ride along the main road, and not in the wild, to reach the location. Once you get close to the Zealot use the R3/RS key to scan her. You must scan all the Zealots, who are the members of the order, to find Heike. Her most probable location is in the east of Brentwood Outpost. Instead of searching her on the roads, you can wait on the main road in the east of Brentwood Outpost until she passes along that way.
Hrothgar: (Location Suthsexe)
You can find this Zealot in the Suthsexe region. Like any other Zealot, he can be found riding a horse on any of the roads in this region. Since he is always riding, his exact location cannot be known at all times. You should ride along every main road of the Suthsexe region, to locate him. Use the map to find the outline of the roads of Cent. When Hrothgar is within a range of a few hundred meters a white helmet icon will appear on the map showing you his most probable position.
Ride along the main road, and not in the wild, to reach the location. Once you get close to the Zealot use the R3/RS key to scan him. You must scan all the Zealots, who are the members of the order to find. His most probable location is in the east of Brentwood Outpost. Instead of searching for him on the roads, you can wait on the main road in the east of Brentwood Outpost until he passes that way.
Step 3: Unlock Excalibur
The above two steps will get you all the three eleven Tablets that you need. Now you have to go to Myrddin’s Cave in Hamtunscire. The pictures below show you the location and the entrance of the cave to unlock Excalibur in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
You have to go through a few trials before you are able to locate and enter the caves. First of all, you have to face a platforming section. Keep platforming until you reach the water pool. After this, you will have to jump into the pool of water, take a left, and look for a gateway. Swim-up to the spot where you can climb out of the water pool. You will find a cave here. Then move on the hurdled road ahead, keep jumping over the ruins until you reach Arthur Pendragon’s camp.
Go inside the Myrddin’s Cave. Here, there would be eleven big stones arranged in a circle. These stones will have slots in them, to insert the Tablets you have collected so far. There would be one slot for each Tablet. Insert the Tablets into these slots. A big stone will appear in between the 11 statues present there.
This new stone will have the Excalibur embedded in it. You can now pull the Sword from the stone. In addition to the secret weapon, you will also get the Caladfwlch trophy or achievement.
