Eivor’s trip to Ireland in the recent Wrath of the Druids DLC in AC Valhalla brings players face to face with a new set of enemies to eliminate. Known as Children of Danu, these enemies are cult members ready to overthrow their King and stop Ireland’s unification. But, Eivor does not immediately get a hold of these foes. The Children of Danu hunting only starts after completing the “Potion of Blood” quest and the death of the Wren.
The Wren, a member of the Children of Danu cult, is the string that ties all the other cult members together. Once this string is broken, Eivor will easily kill off each member one by one. But, easier said than done, finding the Wren is where most players struggle. So, here are some tips on how to do this mission.
First things first, go ahead and speak with Barid to start the Potion of Blood mission. Then, after a chat with Ciara and Deirdre, you can finally unlock each Children of Danu target and get a clue about the Wren.
1. How to Find the Wren in AC Valhalla?
The Wren, also known as Niamph, the poet, can be located by gathering three clues hinting at her location. With all three clues collected, the final clue will point towards Niamph’s immediate location so that Eivor can slay this traitor once and for all.
2. The Wren Location Clues
All the Wren location clues are as follows:
Clue #1: The first clue will point to an abandoned cottage on Port Auley’s shoreline near Ballysadare River in northern Connacht. This clue will reveal directions to the second clue found in Lough Gara Island.
Clue #2: The second clue can be found near a small chest located in the Lough Gara Island near Rathcroghan. One way to locate the clue is to head towards the ritual site in Lough Gara directly. Similarly, the second clue will have directions to the third.
Clue #3: The third and final clue will reveal the current location of the Wren. According to the clue, she can be found roaming in the town of Rathcroghan, about 430 meters South of Lough Gara clue location.
Just a tip– If you can’t see to find the clue, make sure to use your Odin’s Sight or Raven’s Eye to locate it properly.
Once you’ve received her location, your Animus and Order of the Ancients category will also update with a picture now revealing the Wren’s face. Now that you know her location and appearance, time to hunt her down.
3. How to Kill the Wren in AC Valhalla?
To kill the Wren, players need to sneak behind her, perform a stealthy assassination, or have head-on combat until they defeat the target.
You don’t need to worry about Niamph detecting your approach or even recognizing you since you need to eliminate her in any way possible.
After her assassination, you will be able to collect the Bloody Amber and take it to Deirdre, and will also be able to collect two new clues hinting at your next Children of Danu target.
Being a big part of the Wrath of the Druids DLC, the Children of Danu arc is one of the most important storylines. So, make sure to complete each mission and take your time with it while also enjoying Ireland’s beautiful landscapes portrayed in the game.
