Assassin’s Creed Valhalla features a massive world to explore during the age of the Vikings. The world of Valhalla has an impressive sense of scale, and you will have your work cut out for you when taking on new missions and unearthing the many secrets that the land has to offer. One of your safe havens in the game is the settlement of Ravensthrope, which is your main base of operations in the campaign. As you continue with Eivor’s story, you’ll uncover some unique opportunities to expand the settlement in some interesting ways.
In this guide, we’re highlighting some key details to consider when it comes to building your base and expanding Eivor’s influence in England and beyond. While the settlement opens up early in the game, you’re only scratching the surface of what opportunities it can bring you for the first 10 or so hours of the campaign. Along with fishing, hunting, and online trading, the settlement can also introduce new quest lines that will let you bond with its inhabitants. So here’s a quick rundown of some things to consider when it comes to building your base.
Patience Is Key
Surprisingly, this is one of the more critical things to consider when working on your settlement. As soon as you reach England and break ground on your new base of operations, you’ll likely want to drop everything and focus on recruiting followers, building new structures, and generally just making your base the best it can be. Building your settlement is very much a long-term project in Valhalla, and while you can take part in raids to net some new resources, you’ll need to level up more and take on new story missions to continue building it beyond your more modest means in the opening hours.
