Orlog Explained in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Orlog is nothing but a mini-game that every AC Valhalla can play. It is all about your skill and luck and the outcome of the game will be based on how you can read the opponent and what dice you opt to play. In almost all towns and settlements in AC Valhalla, you will have an Orlog opponent waiting to play with you. Notably, Orlog will be shown on your compass as the dice icon.
In order to start the game, you will have to press the triangle or Y button.
How to Play Orlog In AC Valhalla
At the beginning of the match, you will flip a coin to determine who goes first. Each turn will have you roll a set of six dice three times. Whenever you roll, you will be able to decide the number of dice you want to keep but when you roll it for the third time, all dice must be played regardless of what face they land on.
Here’s a quick rundown of what each face means:
- Axe: Deals 1 axe damage.
- Arrow: Deals 1 arrow damage.
- Hand: Steals 1 token from the opponent.
- Helmet: Blocks 1 axe damage.
- Shield: Blocks 1 arrow damage.
Additionally, if the die dace has a border around it, you will be given a token as well.
Every player begins with 15 health points, as indicated by the bluestones at the side of the table. In order to win, you will have to deal with a total of 15 points of damage to your enemy.
Once both players have completed their three rolls, the resolution phase will start. This is a phase where your dice rolls and actions are calculated and the game will automatically deduct HP if applicable.
Once the regulation phase completed, you will need to move on to the god favour phase. Notably, favour phase will only arrive when you have enough tokens. This is a powerful move that you can use in Orlog to either deal a lot of damage or restore health.
When you start playing the game, you will be able to access to Thor’s Strike favour. Here’s a quick rundown of what it does:
- 4 Tokens: Deal 2 damage.
- 8 Tokens: Deal 5 damage.
- 12 Tokens: Deal 8 damage.
Since tokens play a crucial role in Orlog, you must be extra careful about opponents potentially stealing your tokens during the resolution phase.
