The Ritual of the Berserker

Seren Morgan-Roberts
Scott Peers

This quest begins immediately after The Mysterious Berserker. Now that Eivor has introduced themselves to Bjorn and gained his trust, it’s time to help him exact revenge on the lord who killed his wife.

Where to Find Nightshade in East Anglia

Eivor has been tasked by Bjorn to find some nightshade in East Anglia, which Bjorn will use for his berserker brew. As stated in the quest description, you will likely find some nightshade in church graveyards. The nearest can be found at Edmund’s Hope, west of Bjorn’s cave, as shown in the screenshot below. Once there, make your way to the graveyard on the eastern side of the church. As you enter it, the location of the nightshade will be highlighted by a quest marker. Interact with the nightshade to loot it, then meet Bjorn at the Gallows Tree to the southwest.

Meet Bjorn at the Gallows Tree

When you approach the Gallows Tree a cutscene will play, during which Eivor drinks some of the berserker brew. After the scene you’ll need to fight a bear, using only your fists. You may find this difficult if you’re under the recommended level or unprepared, but the main thing to keep in mind is that you’ll need to dodge or roll out of the way from all of the bears attacks, especially those with a red rune aura around them. You’ll find it much easier to dodge and then retaliate with a flurry of hits if you have the Brush with Death skill, which can be found on The Way of the Raven skill branch.

(1 of 5) The location of Edmund's Hope in relation to Bjorn's cave.

Once the bear is dead, speak with Bjorn to complete the quest.
