The Tale of Thegn Oswald is the next main story quest in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla after Kingmaker. It tasks you with seeking out Oswald, the young Saxon thegn Finnr is planning to install as the new king of East Anglia.
If you’ve been struggling to find Oswald, beat Rued’s men, or defeat Valdis’ brothers in a fist fight, we’ve put together this The Tale of Thegn Oswald guide as part of our complete Assassin’s Creed Valhalla walkthrough to help you out. Here’s everything you need to know to complete this main quest in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla The Tale Of Thegn Oswald Guide
This guide picks up directly where our Kingmaker guide left off. After the cutscene with Finnr at the end of that quest ends, The Tale of Thegn Oswald will officially begin. Your first objective is to find Oswald, who will be highlighted on the map by a quest marker. Call your mount and ride towards your destination.
Once you get close and pass through some arches over the bridge, you will see a large angry mob. Go towards them and a cutscene will trigger, introducing you to Oswald. Once the scene is over, mount the horse beside you and follow Oswald to advance the quest. When you hit a certain area — Beteleah Farm — you will have to fight some of Rued’s crew. There are not many of them, so it’s a pretty easy fight. As soon as you have defeated them, go back and speak to Oswald, who will invite you to dinner in Elmenham.
Head towards the new quest marker, where another cutscene with Oswald will play. He will tell you that you are too early and should return at nighttime. You can pass the time by choosing to meditate from the quick actions menu. Continue to meditate at the door until enough time has elapsed that you can go inside, at which point yet another cutscene will start.
During this cutscene, Eivor will stand up for Oswald when Valdis’ brothers insult him. You will have to fight both of the brothers at once (with fists, not weapons — this is just a drunken knock, as opposed to some kind of holmgang). If you dodge too frequently your stamina will be drained and both brothers will rush you at the same time. On the contrary, staying aggressive with light attacks will stun lock your current target while regenerating stamina to dodge the other when he inevitably comes for you. Stay on the aggressive and take both of your opponents down as quickly as possible with a frenzy of continuous light attacks. Once you don’t let up and don’t go on the defensive, you should win without too much trouble. Once you knock both brothers out, a cutscene will play, finishing the quest and leading into the next one: The Measure of a Norseman.
