When Can You Get Gungnir In AC Valhalla?
To discover Odin’s Spear Gungnir, you must first finish the game’s main plot, which includes all story arcs in England.
If you want to pull Gungnir out of the wall, you can only do so after completing the story. To be more precise, after the quest ” To protect my brother, “in which we are taken back to Norway.
How To Defeat & Escape From Odin?
As part of the quest, we fight against Odin, who wields the spear Gungnir. After Odin tells you that you cannot leave Valhalla, Eivor wakes up in a void. A conversation with the Allfather ultimately leads to a battle you cannot win.
Tricks Odin: At first, you cannot drain Odin’s energy in combat. Just let yourself be hit until the game continues automatically. Your friends’ voices appear in visions, but you cannot reach them because Odin controls your axe.
The solution is straightforward and yet a nasty trick. Because you have to go to the equipment menu and put down your ax there, you can escape Odin’s power and end up back in the real world.
Defeat Basim: A boss fight against Basim then takes place. The fight is more typical again and lets you fight him properly. You have to survive against Basim in a total of 3 levels. After that, you can finally pull the Spear out of the wall.
What builds to use with this Spear
Gungnir may be used in almost any build with your Eivor. This weapon will offer you a significant advantage in circumstances when distance is critical. However, it takes some time to learn how to play with it. It’s not your average Spear. You may need time and experience to properly take advantage of its benefit (the greater distance).
