Halfdan or Faravid AC Valhalla - Of Blood And Bonds

Choosing between Halfdan and Faravid is something you’ll have to do during the Eurviscire storyline in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The choice takes place at the very end of the arc, and once it’s done, you’ll return home with another alliance. However, a lot of players are wondering whether making the wrong choice here will endanger the alliance. If you’re wondering what exactly happens when you pick one of the two, our AC Valhalla Halfdan or Faravid guide will show you the consequences of both choices.

Halfdan or Faravid AC Valhalla

The choice takes place during the feast. After Halfdan has another coughing fit, he drops his cup and Eivor picks it up. He’s suspicious – the cup is soft. The cup shouldn’t be soft. He asks Moira what it was made of, and she announces it’s lead, which is a Bad Idea. Turns out Faravid was poisoning Halfdan with lead for a while now, whether intentionally or not.

You’re insane, Halfdan

If you try to reason with Halfdan, he’ll go on a tirade and banish Faravid from Jorvik, who will, in turn, say he doesn’t want to serve under a man who appropriates others’ achievements as his own. You’ll escort Faravid out of town – he’ll be sad, but he won’t admit or deny that he knew about the cups. We’re not sure how this will affect your alliance with Eurviscire, so we suggest you don’t pick this option unless you’re willing to gamble. We’ll update the guide when we know more.

Stand down or fight me, Faravid

If you pick this option, Faravid will not stand down. You’ll have to battle him then and there, and he’ll try to disuade you the whole time. After the fight, you’ll get the friendship bracelet from Halfdan. Your alliance secured, you’ll return to Mercia.

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.

    This game has been out for a quarter. It has taken me 3 days to reach “Of Blood and Bonds”. What the hell are you doing that takes 90 days to pick up from a save point and run a different option. Whoever wrote this article kinda sucks at their job. Ketchua maybe you’ve never heard this but someone who does their job well sees it through til the end. If it turns out that your boss is pulling you away to work on other projects then your boss is an idiot and you can do better. “Never sacrifice your name for someone else, tis the best way to be forgotten!” -original quote
