Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Best Raven Skills

Best Raven skills are subjective to each player so choose the skills based on your character builds. But if you need my suggestions, the following are the ones that we can recommend.


This is one of the best raven skills that you can get in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla not only early on but you can use it throughout the game. It allows you to stagger enemies quicker when dealing damage from behind.

Brush With Death

Dodge perfectly to slow down time. This is a passive ability so you do not need to press a button to activate it. Once time is slowed down, you can deal damage. This can be rather powerful, especially against bosses.

Counter Roll

This lets you dodge unblockable attacks with a roll and gets you behind enemies. Once you are behind the enemy you can deal damage. This works very well with Backstab.

Guided Arrow

This lets you control your arrow when using a Predator Bow. The Predator Bow is used for sniping and with this skill you can perfect your shots and get the accuracy right.

Advanced Assassination

Allows you to assassinate elite enemies with a single strike. This is a must-have skill if you like to remain in the shadows and kill your enemies using the hidden blade.

Chain Assassination

Chain Assassination allows you to assassinate a second enemy after a successful assassination. This makes stealth playstyles even more fun and interesting. Allowing you to remain undetected while being able to take down numerous enemies without having to pick them off one by one.

Missile Reversal

Missile Reversal allows you to throw projectiles back at enemies. This can be very useful against ranged enemies such as archers. No doubt this is one of the best raven skills in AC Valhalla and we recommend checking it out.

Mounted Archer

Being able to use your ranged abilities while on horseback is situational but it could come in handy.

Thrill of War

Thrill of War is another skill that you need to get. It automatically regenerates adrenaline while you are in combat.
