Spare Leofrith in AC Valhalla Heavy is the Head Quest – What Happens?

If you spare Leofrith in the Heavy is the Head quest in AC Valhalla, he’ll return your kindness with another. He’ll tell you about a statue in Venonis that holds a bowl. Inside that bowl is a scroll with your name on it. If the Zealots find it, they’ll start hunting you and never stop. However, if you head over there immediately and burn it, they’ll leave you alone, because they’ll never find the contract. So, find the “Hunted” quest in the menu, track it, and hoof it for Venonis.

Burn the note in the statue’s bowl

Mind you, burning the contract doesn’t mean that the Zealots will disappear from the map. You can still hunt them down at your leisure. The difference is that they won’t actively pester you as you’re trying to do something else. Plus, Leofrith decides to go hunt his traitorous king down in Rome. Everybody wins!

What Happens if You Kill Leofrith in Heavy is the Head AC Valhalla Quest

If you choose to kill Leofrith at the end of the AC Valhalla Heavy is the Head quest, you’ll give him what a Viking would consider an honorable death. You’ll even name him a drengr, which loosely translates to “badass warrior.” It’s a huge honor. Besides, even Odin kinda hints that that’s what you should do; not that I trust that shifty dude for a minute.

So that’s great and honorable and all, but he’ll never tell you about the Zealot scroll at the statue, meaning that they’ll eventually find it and the hunt is on. From that moment further, you’ll always have to be looking over your shoulder. Oh, and Leofrith will never get the opportunity to take his revenge against Burgred. Just an all-around bummer.

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.

    Thank you for these guides I hate that they added choices to the assassin’s creed games its a fun concept but it doesn’t make sense in the assassin’s creed world after all we are viewing history through the eyes of others so all the choices should already be made there should be solid plot and some side missions like the old AC games I get most of the choices don’t matter but it still annoys me
