There’s a Fly Agaric challenge in Essexe in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. It’s one of the hallucination mysteries, where you eat a mushroom then solve a puzzle in order to activate a portal that lets you sober up. The one in Essexe is on a bloody battlefield, and you’re supposed to light certain braziers in order to escape. If you’re wondering which ones are the right ones, our AC Valhalla Essexe mushroom mystery guide will show you.
Shield statue hallucination challenge
When you eat the mushroom, you’ll be transported to a battlefield littered with corpses. Around it will be six statues, each with a shield in its hands, and a brazier in front of it. You’re supposed to activate the braziers, so that the flames turn blue – but only the correct ones.
If you stand in front of the gate, look away from it and start from the right, the correct statues are the second, third and sixth (last one). Once you’ve activated those three, the portal will open up, letting you leave the magical realm and complete the challenge.
It’s one of the harder Fly Agaric puzzles we’ve encountered. Unlike the one in Grantebridgescire, or the one back in Rygjafylke, we couldn’t tell what the reasoning behind the solution was – we got it through brute force and a bit of luck. Still, even that is better than getting stuck with no solution. If you figure out the logic behind this one, feel free to leave us a comment and say so.
In the meantime, if you get sick of mushrooms and fires and statues, you could push the story further – there are some interesting choices to be made down the line, romances to be had, and untold riches to be plundered from chests.
If you need help with anything else in the game, we've got a metric ton of other guides for you to check out. For example, we've written AC Valhalla Hidden Ones Armor Set Locations - Ratae Bureau Armor & Londinium Bureau Key for quest A Brief History of The Hidden Ones, that will reward you with the Hidden Ones armor. We can also help with whether you want to let Rued Live or Die - Kill or Spare Rued Choice Consequences, or who to give silver to in AC Valhalla War Weary quest , and a well hidden AC Valhalla Comb location for Bil Maiden's Missive Rygjafylke World Event. Puzzle that caused us big problems was Unseal The Well during the quest Well Traveled. And, yes, we do have many more coming, stay tuned.
