There’s yet another choice you have to make and you are probably wondering what are the consequences of it. This one occurs during the Snaring Thorstein section of the game. Find out how the Execute, Brutal Death Or Cruelty Thorstein Choice in AC Valhalla Wrath of the Druids DLC will determine your path ahead in the expansion.
AC Valhalla – Execute, Brutal Death Or Cruelty Thorstein Choice and Consequences
After you are done with the task to carry Thorstein to the castle, Barid will talk to him and soon has to make a weighty decision. When Barid asks for advice about what to do with Thorstein, you have three options:
- A dignified execution
- A brutal death
- A display of cruelty
If you choose the option: A dignified execution
Eivor says that everyone should know that you are a just and resolute king. So you suggest a diginified execution and Sichfrith agrees with you.
- Consequence for this choice for Thorstein: Barid says that Dublin confiscates Thorstein’s land and silver. The king also banishes him and asks him to begone by sundown. When Eivor and Sichfrith ask why he did this, Barid reveals that he wants to show mercy and change Flann Sinna’s mind.
If you choose the option: A brutal death
Eivor says that a brutal death is what Thorstein deserves and Sichfrith will agree.
- Consequence for this choice for Thorstein: Barid doesn’t follow your advice and banishes Thorstein while also taking away his land and silver.
If you choose the option: A display of cruelty
Eivor says that people will love a public spectacle where Thorstein is tortured. That’s how no one will dare to cross Barid again. Sichfrith agrees with you.
- Consequence for this choice for Thorstein: In this choice, as well, Barid will banish Thorstein while taking away his wealth.
Which Choice to Pick for Thorstein?
So, as you can tell, the story unfolds similarly and the choice doesn’t really matter. The only thing that slightly changes is the response from Eivor. So you can go ahead and pick any option since it does not have an impact on the story or your path ahead.
