Ubisoft’s much-awaited latest DLC addition to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, titled ‘Dawn of Ragnarök,’ is finally here. It brings a ton of new locations, exciting characters, powerful weapons/armors, and more playable content to this never-ending beautiful game.  

One of the most intriguing elements of this DLC is the introduction of the cursed Hreidmar’s armor set, a deadly hidden armor in Svartalfheim. 

The Hreidmar’s cursed armor set is in Hodda Shelter, located west of Eitri in the western Vangrinn region, accessible through Dawn of Ragnarök DLC of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. 

This shelter is easy to locate as it is filled to the brim with gold. After entering the shelter, go through the large door and navigate your way to the furnace room. The armor is sitting on a pedestal located to the left of the furnace/blacksmith’s room. Go ahead and pick up the armor, but don’t equip it right away as there is a catch to it!

As the name suggests, Hreidmar’s armor set is cursed. Wearing even one piece of it will nullify evasion and cut your Health down to 33%, and wearing all of them will damage you such that you’ll die in 30 seconds.  

To remove this curse, you first need to bless the armor by locating five Jotun Blights in Svartalfheim and destroying their red skulls to obtain Motsognir’s Clarity rune. Once acquired, you then need to socket the Motsognir’s Clarity rune in each armor piece which will turn the armor into Hreidmar’s Blessed Set.
