Assassin's Creed Valhalla - Yule Season

Welcome to Yule! The Yuletide festival has just begun in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla today, on December 17, and it’s set to last 21 days, making January 6, 2021, the final day of the event. Here is a complete breakdown of everything that’s going on in this most wonderful time of the year.

First off, in case you haven’t noticed, the Ravensthorpe settlement has been covered in a layer of snow. There are also holiday decorations and a new area in your settlement that includes plenty of festivities to take in.

So how do you kick off the event? Well, as soon as you log in, you should be given a quest called Yule, which tells you to return to Ravensthorpe. Once you arrive, you’ll meet Norvid in a cutscene. That’s really all it takes to get started.

So what can you do once you arrive? Well, there are five activities, which will let you earn Yule Tokens. These tokens can be spent on holiday-exclusive items.

Here’s a breakdown of the activities.

Yule Brawl

Assassin's Creed Valhalla - Yule Season

This seems to be the main focus of the event. This is a ten-round boxing championship where you have to drink between every round. It’s a lot of fun, and as you complete other activities, you’ll end up recruiting other people to be opponents.

If you can win all ten rounds, you’ll be rewarded with 70 Yule Tokens. You’ll also be super, super drunk by the end, which makes it tricky to repeat this one back-to-back.

Braun’s Folly

Assassin's Creed Valhalla - Yule Season

This is a simple drinking game. If you can drink three horns of ale faster than Braun, you win ten Yule Tokens. I’ve never cared for the drinking games in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and this one isn’t really anything special. The reward is kind of pathetic too, and since you end up pretty drunk after this, it’s also tricky to repeat it several times in a row.

Twirling Targets

Assassin's Creed Valhalla - Yule Season

This is a simple archery contest, where you must shoot at spinning targets for two minutes. Your score determines your winnings, and a perfect score (which I believe is 1,200 or higher) well get you 40 Yule Tokens. That makes this the fastest way to earn tokens, especially since you won’t be drunk at the end of it and you can just do it back to back.

Cow Catcher

Assassin's Creed Valhalla - Yule Season

This is a one-time quest that has you help Bertham hunt four cows that have wandered off. When you complete the quest, Bertham the Beast Slayer is available as a fighter in the Yule Brawl, which is hilarious because he goes down after a single punch. You’ll also be given 140 Yule Tokens.

The Case of the Missing Ale

Assassin's Creed Valhalla - Brewery

This is a one-time quest that has you chasing a missing keg of ale for Ake. I’ve made a complete guide to this quest already, so I won’t go into detail here. For completing this, you’ll get Ake the Brewmaster as a fighter in the Yule Brawl, and he’s much more of a challenge than Bertham (but still not all that difficult). You’ll also get 140 Yule Tokens.

Yuletide awards

Of course, the whole reason to partake in these events is to earn Yule Tokens to be spent on seasonal rewards at Norvid’s hut. If you want to buy absolutely everything, you’ll need to earn 775 Yule Tokens.

Below, you’ll find a complete list of everything you can earn in the Yuletide Festival.

Mōdraniht Ceremonial Outfit

I like your description of the brawl. Have you tried doing it back to back? Your mead consumption resets when you restart the brawl. Set it to easy, fight, drink, win, 70 tokens, repeat.

I’m not sure what game you guys are playing but every time I win the yule brawl (undefeated so far) I get 100 tokens. This is the simple 6 rounds without having done the cow or brewery quests. The other opponents haven’t had a chance to hit me at all so perhaps that plays into how many tokens you get at the end.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
