Abilties and Book of Knowledge Locations – Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Wiki Guide

Last Edited:

Instead, Eivor must locate Books of Knowledge hidden across the land. These books contains the wisdom to learn new abilities – both melee and ranged – that can then be equipped and use on your hotbar much as they were utilized in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

Each Ability has two tiers – discovering the first Book of Knowledge for that ability will unlock it for use, while the second Book of Knowledge will increase its capabilities beyond its base version. Only 4 of each type of ability can be equipped at once, so find and upgrade abilities that suit your playstyle to make use of.

Below you will find information on all known abilities, where to find the books, and what the abilities can do.
