@max18400 Valhalla is a RPG without any choice, even when you take another dialog option you get not only the same answer but exactly the same outcome as well.
Played the game 3 times from the start! (have to much time these months), tried to make all kinds of various decisions, replayed many events, outcome doesn't chance.
Only Sigurd's opinion will be different in the end.
Don't know what Valhalla is, side quests are dlc's, events could have been side quests, character build/development is limited.
The Ireland DLC seems to be the rest of the story!
For me this isn't a RPG at all, a mix of all flavors never taste good.
GOTY ..... not for something that is complete different than it claims to be, haven't mentioned the quality and defects.
So many chests...and key's pffff, yup we must do something to get what we want.
I have been a locksmith for 32 years and can tell that with an ax you can open most of them!
If not just smash the chest!
Time period, keys yes they can be old but most of the time people bury there valuables or had many creative ways to hide it.
Pls. let me search for treasures and not for key's.
@martygod12 It really sucks, all i want is a viking chainmail and a original 1h sword like there are plenty of in the museum.
I'm also not waiting for Basim gear and sword (persian model) and other AC armors from the past.
Gear from the Helix store seems to be created for children who have access to there parents wallet!
Even if there will come proper gear in the Helix store i refuse to spent 1 more coin to the greedy UBI soft company.
@djam3r Your right, its not a RPG at all!and he only talks about "she"!
It's a linear story with fake choices, played the game 3 times 753 hrs due to having the brewing storm bug (replayed the game after 56 lost hrs) and again a new run after i got my new series x.
Did the main quests with different choices and the outcome was exact the same, only Sigurd's opinion at the end will be different.
Complete hilarious is when you take different dialog options, the answers/reactions are literally the same.
Gender choice; Eivor is a woman, there is a interview with the writer on youtube
So the whole gender choice is typical UBisoft hypocritical / political chicken.........
@justus1302 I finally got it done; reset my xbox one x back to factory date, reinstalled game, replayed game from the start.
(had the time/motivation to do it)
Brewing storm did what it had to do, i was whole time afraid to encounter it again!
Didn't had any bug this time, quit a lot glitches during mysteries and main quests but got it all fixed by saving (worked this time) and replay.
Lost 53 hours by doeing this.
In quality Valhalla is a step backwards from Odessey, it's far more "cartoonish" and even that could have been much better!
Besides Eivor the characters are not very interesting and looks to animated , the dialog's are boring/simple/uninteresting, lack of humor (Odessey much more fun!)
On the RPG pad ubisoft made a start with Odessey but instead of improvement Valhalla is far worse with the total lack of choices and even if there is one there are no serious effects!
Combat; see many other discussions on this forum!
The coming DLC's are extensions of the main story so we can call them valhalla 2 and 3, in Odessey we had the choice to play the DLC's somewhere within the main story what made a new game+ more interesting so it must be the reason why it wasn't in the planing.
Almost all "new" things are borrowed from other games like the Witcher; even flyting was done in tousaint (fist of fury) cart table comes straight out of Dragon age including the daggers!
If this is the future of the gaming industry i will spent more time fishing than gaming!

@kazeaziz Only way is to go back to an earlier save, fix in a "future update" (future is long!) see: https://discussions.ubisoft.com/topic/98428/unable-to-progress-in-flann-over-ireland-as-npcs-don-t-meet-at-the-stable-post-here/5?lang=en-US
While the main storyline in past Assassin's Creed games typically moved linearly through the main sections of the game world, Valhalla has the player often returning back to the main settlement and back to areas previously visited as information about the new areas of England is learned by the Vikings through reconnaissance or from contacts. Not all missions require violent ends, with some that can be resolved through diplomatic means. Player choices through conversation or gameplay options will affect the characters and their political alliances with other non-player characters. The game also relies less on a traditional leveling system and instead focuses more on the selection of skills through skill trees selected by the player as Eivor advances through the game. The difficulty posed by enemies is rated based on the player's collection of skills.
If this all was the truth and without all the bugs / glitches it could have been something!
@ubi-mark I can't (finished DLC) i was lucky with a manual save just before this quest, fact was Braid didn't follow at my first attempt and i went with Ciara to the end of the ride where everything ended (no conversation / progress).
2e attempt i waited till Braid and Ciara started the ride and kept following them from a little distance, had to stop 2x to wait till npc continued the ride.
