This quest begins immediately after Under the Skin. It’s finally time to say farewell to Hemming Jarl, and help to choose who should be the new Jarl.
Speak with Vili at Odin’s Rest
To begin, you’ll need to speak with Vili at Odin’s Rest. Before you do, take some time to speak with the people who have chat bubbles over their heads. When you’re ready for the funeral to proceed, speak with Vili. You’ll have to present your gift to Hemming, in the form of the shield which you had the hermit add a symbol to during Adorning the Adorned. After the following cutscene, you’ll need to speak with Sunniva at the longhouse in Hemthorpe.
Vili or Trygve - Who Should You Choose As Jarl?
When you speak with Sunniva the Althing will begin. during the scene, Vili will ask Eivor who they see as being Jarl. You’ll have two options here:
- “I see a jarl in you.”
- “I see Trygve as jarl, and you with me.”
The choice you make means little to the broader story. However, the most significant consequence is that if you choose Vili as jarl, he won’t join you in Ravensthorpe and you won’t be able to recruit him as a Jomsviking for your longship crew. If you choose Trygve, he will become jarl and Vili will join you.
