Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Mastery Challenge

In the AC Valhalla Mastery Challenge, your combat, stealth and ranged-attack skills are tested. Basically, a meteorite crashes into Ravensthorpe, and when you visit the area where it crashes, you will meet a woman named Hildiran. After speaking to her, she will come with you to the settlement where she brings some special knowledge along with her. It’s battle meditation, a special kind of spiritual training that will lead you to a treasure.

How to Start Mastery Challenge?

To start “A Challenge from the Gods” quest in Mastery Challenge, you must be at least Power Level 221 and have completed the “Uninvited Guests” main quest after reporting on Grantebridgescire and Ledecestrescire. So, if you aren’t there yet, make sure to play and level up. There will be five new shrines added in this update, so you must start your training by going to the first one that is marked on the map. Then, all you have to do to start a Mastery Challenge is to meditate at the shrine. Then choose between Trial of the Bear, Trial of the Wolf, and Trial of the Raven.

  • Combat: Trial of the Bear – Fierce Combat to test your strength.
  • Range: Trial of the Wolf – Archery, and Aim to test your marksmanship.
  • Stealth: Trial of the Raven – Ultimate Stealth to test your guile.


Best Gear for Trials?

Well, you will be assigned gear that is pre-established for these trials. So, your weapons and abilities will be pre-selected for you which makes this more of a challenge. Then to complete the trial, you have to finish the objective given to you which will earn you a medal. For example, you will have objectives such as –

  • Remain anonymous
  • Do assassinations
  • Steal all artifacts
  • Indirect kills
  • Eliminate all guards
  • Parry
  • Fire Damage kills
  • Fall Damage kills
  • and more!


Your ultimate goal will be to achieve a perfect score. You can keep playing over and over again to master the tasks and reach the highest score to get special rewards.
