The Sword of Saint George

Seren Morgan-Roberts


This page offers a guide on where to locate Saint George’s Holy Sword, which can be found on the River Dee.

How to unlock the River Dee

Before you’ll be able to access the River Dee as a raiding area, you’ll need to find the clues located on the River Severn and the River Exe.

River Severn Clue

The clue on the River Severn can be found at the Northern Monastery, which is the furthest point to the northeast. Head up into the main building of the monastery by smashing a window, then shoot the door link through the metal bars. You’ll then be able to head back outside to use the unbarred door so you can grab the clue on the table.

(1 of 3) The Northern Monastery is located in the far northeast portion of the map.

River Exe Clue

The clue on the River Exe is found in Escanceaster Monastery, which is in the eastern section of the map. Head up into the largest abbey at the top of the hill and you’ll find the clue on a table inside. You can use Odin’s Sight to help you locate it.

Finding Saint George’s Holy Sword

The Sword of Saint George is located within a military fortress at the end of the River Dee. The Fortress you’re looking for is Deva Victrix. If you activate the quest, there will be a marker on your map to lead you in the right direction.

The Champion who wields the sword will be found in the fortress at the very top of the fort. You’ll need to make your way up the hill, until you come to a draw bridge. Parkour across a branch over to the fort and shoot at the links holding up the draw bridge, which will let it down and your crew can join you in the fort.

Force open the red door, and you’ll be faced with a boss fight with the Champion. As far as fights go, he’s pretty easy, just dodge his red attacks and parry his lighter orange attacks. When you defeat him, you’ll need to confirm the kill to pick up Saint George’s Holy Sword.

(1 of 3) In the fortress you'll find the champion wielding Saint George's Holy Sword.
