Assassin's Creed Valhalla

In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you start out with limited storage for rations and arrows. The good news is that you can upgrade the maximum capacity for both of these, and you can also upgrade your gear without visiting a forge (to a certain extent).

And the process for doing all of these things is pretty much the same.

First, open up your menu, then go to the Inventory tab.

On the left side of this screen, you’ll see your quiver and rations, each of which has a segmented bar below it. If you move your cursor over one of those, there will be a pop-up that lets you upgrade it. You upgrade by pressing square (if you’re playing on PS4).

These upgrades will cost some combination of the following crafting materials: leather, iron ore, fabric, and titanium. Each subsequent upgrade costs more than the previous one.

You can also upgrade your gear — pretty much all of your weapons and armor — the same way, though there are some additional things to know here.

Every piece of gear has a maximum number of upgrades, but this cap will increase with every forge upgrade. So every time you upgrade, say, an axe at the forge, you’re increasing the amount you can personally upgrade that axe. This cap is denoted by the number of “segments” you see on that piece of gear, as shown below.

Make sense? Cool.

So where can you find these materials? Iron ore can be found in obsidian deposits around the world, which look like this:

Smash that sucker open and collect the iron ore inside.

Leather comes from hunting. While you’re out in the wild, be sure to kill anything that moves and harvest leather from the carcasses of your prey.

Fabric and titanium are both super rare, and I usually find those in chests. Titanium can also sometimes be found sitting on a table or in a corner somewhere, but not very often. Look everywhere and loot everything.

You’ve got a bit of a grind ahead of you, but Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is an enormous game. You can always work on your gear grind on the side as you’re doing other things, which is probably the ideal way to tackle this.

Anyway, that’s how you upgrade your rations, quiver, and gear in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Thanks; for a tutorial given by the game itself! I can’t wait to see what other insights you have.
