This page details everything you need to know about how to Transmog in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
What is Transmog?
Transmog (or Transmogrification) is a feature which allows you to change the appearance of Eivor without impacting the stats associated with specific gear. This means that you can equip your favorite armor and weapons based on their stats, but use another set at the same time for its appearance.
How to Transmog in AC Valhalla
If you want to change the appearance of Eivor, you’ll need to visit Gunnar, the resident blacksmith of Ravensthorpe. You’ll notice that you now have a third tab alongside Enhance gear and Downgrade gear, called “Change Appearance”. Here you can select any armor or weapon piece that you want to continue wearing for its stat benefits, then select any corresponding armor or weapon of the same type for its appearance.
You can only transmog with armor and weapons of the same type. For example, if you want to change the appearance of one of your Bearded Axes, you won’t be able to select a Sword or even a Dane Axe to replace it. You must use another Bearded Axe in its place. On the bright side, this does mean that you can now wield two Varin’s Axes if you’d want to. In addition, the pool of weapon types from which you can select a new appearance includes all the quality types that you have so far upgraded to. For example, if you’ve upgraded Varin’s Axe to Mythical quality, you will still be able to select the Fine, Superior, or Flawless design of the same axe for the other hand, while keeping the benefits of whatever axe you’re using primarily for its stats.
Equip Vinland Armor in England and Norway!
One of the great frustrations of the Vinland region is that it came with a beautiful set of armor which is restricted to that region. Upon returning to England or Norway, you find that the Vinland armor is no longer in your inventory. Now, the Transmog system allows you to use the appearance of the Vinland armor and weapon set in England or Norway. The only catch is that you still can’t equip the set for its stats.
The Godly Reward Pack: Altair’s Outfit
Alongside the new Transmog system, you can currently obtain the Godly Reward Pack from the Helix store for free. This pack provides a number of cosmetics including the full Modraniht armor and weapon set from the original Yule Festival, but also the original Altair’s Outfit, allowing you to equip it through the Transmog system and revel in nostalgia from the days of the legendary Altair. In addition to the cosmetics, the pack also gifts you 300 Opals!
How to Earn Silver in AC Valhalla
The main difference between the Transmog system in Valhalla and the one from Odyssey, is that in Valhalla you have to pay to change your appearance. The cost isn’t great at 50 silver per piece, but it can certainly add up if you like to change your appearance frequently. Thankfully, the River Raids system provides a great way to earn silver relatively quickly. Although you have to pay a small amount to begin a river raid, you get what you paid for and much more for each raid, with plenty of minor treasure chests containing hundreds of silver to be found. Be sure to make the most of the River Raids if you’re in need of silver.
Fishing and Hunting
Another easy way to earn silver in Valhalla is by fishing and hunting. You’ll find a bit more on this on our Tips & Tricks page, but the gist of it comes down to spending your time exploring the landscape, looking for good fishing and hunting spots. You can sell different types of fish for a reasonable price (the bigger the better!), and numerous types of hunting materials such as bear furs, wolf fangs, lynx paws, wild boar tusks, and other miscellaneous animal parts such as guts, bones, and hearts. Essentially, kill everything you find and bring the spoils back to a trader.
Flyting Contests and Drinking Games
Throughout the game world you’ll come across multiple characters who will challenge you to flyting contests and drinking games. Each time you engage in any of these you can bet up to 200 silver and double the amount if you win. The flyting contests require specific answers, which you’ll find a complete guide to in our Flyting section.
The drinking games are a bit more of a gamble, reliant on your own observational and timing skills. Try a few with minimal bets to get the hang of it. You can challenge the same people multiple times, but you can only bet silver once, so make sure you bet the maximum amount only when you’re confident in your abilities!
Stealing and Looting Minor Treasure
This method is probably the most versatile, since you can do it pretty much anywhere in the game world. As you play through the main story and complete mysteries, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to steal wealth from others. The most prolific and profitable form comes with minor treasure chests, which often contain 100 silver in each. You’ll find these scattered throughout settlements, monasteries, abbeys, and ruins. In addition, you’ll find various lootable trade goods throughout the world which can be sold to traders.
