AC Valhalla: Kill or Spare Cynon Choice – Which to Choose?


Here are the consequences for each of the choices regarding Cynon:

  • Should you Kill Cynon?: If you pick “Prepare to Die”, Cynon will be absent during the Wicker Man ritual in the quest called The Burning of The Wicker Man. That’s because you will end up killing him right there and then later get into a boss fight with Modron. Tewdwr will become the new Ealdorman of Glowecestrescire anyway.
  • Should you Spare Cynon?: On picking “You’ll die in The Wicker Man”, you will say that he’s already a dead man because Cynon dies at the Wicker Man ritual. You will spare him as of now, but you know that he’s going to get burned alive in the festival. In terms of Tewdwr, his fate as the new Ealdorman doesn’t change.

So, as you can see, the impact of this choice is very little and isn’t story-changing. Go ahead and pick whichever option that resonates with you and continue your journey as the powerful Viking.
