‘Farewell and Legacies’ in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is a mission that will put you in the dilemma of making a difficult choice between friends. Upon your decision making shall lie the fate of the Snotinghamscire region.
Here, Eivor will travel to Snotinghamscire. The protagonist will be responsible for deciding who should be the next Jarl of the region- Vili or Trygve.
You will be asked to visit Snotinghamscire to help Vili’s father, Hemming Jarl, and choose his successor. Hemming is now old and ill. Therefore, he wants Eivor to choose the most capable candidate as the new Jarl.
The first hurdle you have to cross here is deciding whether to let Trygve commit suicide or not.
1. Should You Let Trygve Sacrifice Himself?
While playing Farewell and Legacies, Hemming Jarl will die. During his funeral, Trygve will plan on burning himself to death to honor the demise of the old Jarl.
You will be given two dialogue options here:
- Snotinghamscire can’t lose another.
- Do as you must, Trygve.
This is a matter of life and death. It would be very sinister of you to let Trygve burn himself alive.
Moreover, if you let Trygve kill himself at Hemming’s funeral, you will not be able to make him the Jarl later in the quest.
If you prevent Trygve from committing suicide, you will have to decide between Vili or Trygve as the Jarl, later in the story.
Now that Hemming Jarl has kicked the bucket, you will have to choose the next jarl at the atheling. Here, Vili will ask you what decision you have made.
This is what will happen upon choosing Vili or Trygve as the next Jarl:
2. Consequences of Choosing Vili as the next Jarl of Snotinghamscire
The dialogue option to choose: I see a jarl in you.
Vili is Eivor’s childhood friend and the son of Hemming Jarl. You will have the opportunity of making him the next Jarl of Snotinghamscire. However, the issue is that Vili doesn’t want to walk in the same shoes as his father, Hemming.
It has been shown many times how he prefers to lead a life without worries. He doesn’t have the obedience that a leader must possess.
However, it has also been shown that Vili really respects Eivor. If the protagonist asks him to grow into the role of a Jarl, he’ll do so and be ready for the big responsibility.
Here are the consequences of choosing Vili as the next Jarl:
- Vili will declare an alliance with the Raven Clan.
- Trygve will serve Vili as an advisor.
- During the final confrontation, Vili will represent Snotinghamscire.
3. Consequences of Choosing Trygve as the next Jarl
The Dialogue option to choose: I see Trygve as Jarl, and you with me.
If you think Vili will not be a good fit for the role of Jarl, you can go ahead and choose Trygve to represent Snotinghamscire.
Trygve may not be the true successor, but he has what it takes to be successful. His mentality represents a true leader.
Here are the consequences of choosing Trygve as the next Jarl:
- Trygve will declare an alliance with the Raven Clan.
- Vili will join your raiding crew.
- Villi joins your settlement in Ravensthorpe.
- During the final confrontation, Vili represents Snotinghamscire, even if you choose Trygve as the Jarl.
At the end of the day, this dilemma is all about your inclinations. For me, Vili is the right person to be the Jarl of Snotinghamscire.
Vili is ready to die for the Raven Clan later in the game, even if you select Trygve as the Jarl. This speaks volumes of the growth he goes through! Moreover, he is the rightful heir to the position too and a romance option for Eivor.
