What is Order of the Ancients in AC Valhalla?
The Order of the Ancients in AC Valhalla is a “secret society of pagans that has infiltrated every level of society to spread their dogmatic views.” If you’ve played AC Odyssey and have encountered the Cult of the Kosmos, you’ll be familiar with the system.

Eventually, you’ll come to the leader of the Order and dispatch them, too. The members can be any NPC with any degree of influence, so you’ll have to be careful who you trust. Meanwhile, they’ll be sending zealots, aka hired mercenaries, out to get you.
How Does AC Valhalla Order of the Ancients Work?
As you can see in the image up top, the Order of Ancients in AC Valhalla has four branches; Wardens of War, Wardens of Wealth, etc. They are led by five Maegesters. On the very top is the Grand Maegester. Initially, all of them will be hidden until you manage to find enough clues about their identities.
Finding clues is essential here, and we’ll cover that in more detail later. Discovering said clues reveals Order members, allowing you to mark them on the map and hunt them down. As you clear out one of the branches, you’ll eliminate a Palatinus or Preost, which will give you intel on their Maegester. Root out enough of those, and you’ll reveal the Grand Maegester. Just keep in mind that these people can be anybody, so be careful who you trust.
