An Easy Guide for Solving the Nyhofn Mysteries – Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla will have you visiting exciting places and Vinland is one of them. Vinland is an unusual place as it doesn’t have much civilization, you’ll just come across a tribe, a small village and some unpleasant people.

However, one of the most interesting things you can do in Vinland is solve its mysteries. There are several Vinland mysteries but we’re not here to talk about all of them. We’ll be talking about the Nyhofn ones and how to solve them.

There are 2 mysteries in Vinland that involve Nyhofn in some shape or form and you can do them anytime during your journey. They are:

  • A Dead Man’s Tale
  • Breaking Teeth, Not Hearts

Completing these two World Events will take you closer to unlocking the All the Way! trophy or achievement.

With that out of the way, let’s get into how you can complete both the World Events:

A Dead Man’s Tale

When you travel to the objective marker for ‘A Dead Man’s Tale’, you’ll find a dead body. Read the nearby note and you’ll find out that the dead man wants his remains carried to Nyhofn.

The resting place where he wants you to take the corpse is located slightly southwest of the corpse. Pick up the corpse and carry him to his desired resting place. Once you reach there, a woman will approach you causing a cutscene to trigger. It’s worth noting that whatever you say to her doesn’t matter as the quest will finish regardless of what you say.

Breaking Teeth, Not Hearts

This mystery will be available on the map, but you cannot initiate it without completing ‘Ursine Takeover’ and ‘Flight of Fancy.’ So, complete these two mysteries in order to start and proceed with ‘Breaking Teeth, Not Hearts’.

Once you complete those mysteries, the people you met during them will be in Nyhofn, resting by the campfire with another hunter. Talk to the stranger in order to start the mystery and join their hunting party. What you need to do is follow your party, while they search for a deadly animal. Upon discovering the animal, all you have to do is kill it and you’ll complete the quest.

This is how to complete both the Nyhofn mysteries.
