How to Locate and Defeat The Lyre in AC Valhalla? –  Full Guide

Every protagonist in each of the Assassin’s Creed games has one goal in particular, i.e., to defeat the Templars or Order of the Ancients corrupting their land. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s main character Eivor follows the same route. From fighting for peace in England to discovering the true purpose of hidden assassins, Eivor has to deal with the Maegesters of the Order of the Ancients to continue his journey in the game.

One such Maegester is the Lyre a.k.a Tatfrid who needs to be eliminated for the sake of peace. If you’re struggling to find this man and cannot seem to locate his whereabouts, here’s something that might help you find him quickly.

First things first, make sure you have eliminated all the other members of the Order (Billhook, Anvil, Lathe, Ash-Spear, Tang, and Crozier) before you try to locate the Lyre, since his location will only be marked after the members’ death.
