Guide to Obtain The Thunderer Axe in AC Valhalla And Obliterate Your Enemies! 2 Easy Ways

The name, Eivor, is known to send shivers down enemies’ spines, and we won’t be doing it any justice by enduring sub-standard weaponry. Our beloved Viking deserves such gear that puts it on the same pedestal as gods. Luckily for you, Eivor can now equip a mythical ax that was once wielded by a Celtic deity himself.

Belonging to the Wolf skill tree, the Thunderer Ax is a mythical weapon in AC Valhalla that is inspired by Taranis, the Celtic god of thunder. It can be purchased from Reda’s Shop for 120 Opals or from the “Taranis Armor Set” available in the in-game Ubisoft store of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for 2000 Helix Credits. 

If you wanted to get your hands on this stupendous ax by immersing yourself in the Norse World, then I have some bad news for you. Unfortunately, you cannot claim the Thunderer Ax by completing demanding quests, solving mysteries, or exploring every corner of this sprawling Viking world.

Buying the Thunderer Ax from Reda’s Shop

Buy the Thunderer Ax from Reda

To buy the Thunderer Ax from Reda, approach him at his shop in Ravensthorpe and select the first option (see shop), which will display all the items Reda is selling. Look for the Thunderer Ax, select, and buy it for 120 Opals.

Reda is a “young-looking” merchant in AC Valhalla whose shop can only be found in the Ravensthorpe settlement after it has reached at least rank 2.

Also, if you are new to the game and don’t know what Opal is, then don’t sweat; I got you covered.

Opals are the rarest materials in Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. They cannot be bought in-game or through Ubisoft store with real-world currency. They need to be earned in-game by completing various side-missions and collection activities.

Keep in mind that items in Reda’s shop reset daily and weekly, so if you cannot find the Winged Shield in his shop, wait for the shop to reset and look for it again the following week. 

All the Weekly items that Reda sells keep changing every Tuesday at 7 AM MST/6 AM PT.

However, if you are longing to get your hands on this mythical ax, buy it from the in-game store by pulling out your credit card.

Buying the Thunderer Ax from the In-Game Store
