Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: How to Increase Power Level
While roaming around England you’ll notice that some regions have a high power level recommendation. Unlike previous games, these areas aren’t locked off until you reach a certain level but available to explore from the beginning. However, the enemies in these areas are quite powerful and will shred you to pieces if you pick a fight with one. So avoid going to these areas until you’re powerful enough.
There are plenty of ways to increase Eivor’s power level in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the most important of which is completing the main story missions or quests. These quests net you the most amount of experience points or XP which is the cornerstone to increase your power level in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. XP is directly proportional to skill points meaning the more XP you gain by doing a quest the more skill points you gain.
These skill points can then be spent on the Skill Tree to unlock different skills. Each time you unlock a skill, your power level will increase by 1. In this way, the number of skill points you’ve spent determines your power level. For example; if you’ve spent 30 skill points on the skill tree, your power level will be 31, since you start at power level 11.
Aside from the main story quests, there are some other activities that award you with a fair amount of XP and hence skill points. These activities are:
- Visiting Blue Orbs to reveal mysteries, which when completed award you with a good chunk of XP.
- Visiting synchronization points.
- Taking on more powerful enemies to net more XP per kill.
- Discovering new locations
At the moment, the max known power level is 340. You can also unlock the trophy or achievement called “We’re in the End Game Now” after reaching power level 280.
