February 2 AC Valhalla Helix Store Content
Every Tuesday, the Helix store brings new content. It can come in the form of one-off items to be purchased separately or themed packs like armor sets, ship decoration packs, and more. This week we receive a new pack – the Hearthweru Pack.
The Hearthweru Pack costs 1,000 Helix Credits and features the following items:
- Hearthweru Helmet (armor)
- Hearthweru Hood (armor)
- Hearthweru armor (armor)
- Hearthweru Bracers (armor)
- Hearthweru pants (armor)
- Warhorse (mount skin)
- Bald Eagle (bird skin)
- Bannermen’s Speak (melee weapon)
- Golden shield (shield)
Hearthweru armor set
The set of armor and weapons belong to the way of the wolf. The armor set has the following set bonuses:
- (2 pieces) Increases attack by 3 hits after blocking
- (5 pieces) Additional speed increase
The overall description reads as follows:
“An elite guard must stand out from ordinary warriors. This armor marks you as an outstanding fighter who stands above the rest ”.
Each of the items in this armor set (including the spear and shield) has three rune slots: two regular circular slots and one square slot per item. The Golden Shield is, as I said earlier, a wolf item and it has the following benefit:
- Increase speed after a blockage
- Duration: 10s
- Bonus: +5.0 Speed
The shield has two circular regular rune slots and one rectangular special rune slot.
The description on the golden shield is as follows:
“Either looted from a treasure chest, or made to order with the best materials, this shield remains effective while being ostentatious.
Spear of Bannermen
The Bannermen shield is a 2-handed melee weapon typical of the wolf category. This weapon has the two circular standard rune slots and a special rectangular rune slot. It offers the following bonuses if equipped:
- Increases attack when equipped with a shield
The description for this item reads as follows:
“People carrying flags in combat would be targeted first, but this robust variant will come as a surprise to would-be attackers.”
Hearthweru Pack images
Below you can check out the elements of the Hearthweru in-game pack:
Bald Eagle (bird skin)
The bald eagle is a very magical looking skin for your crow. This will not add any special abilities or benefits to the bird, but will surely change its appearance into something that I’m sure most of you will enjoy flying!
To change the appearance of your crow, you need to interact with the stable master.
Warhorse (mount skin)
The warhorse is a very generic steed. It won’t impress you much, and honestly, it’s worthless. It doesn’t really stand out from the other mount skins you can get from the stables.
To change your horse’s skin, you need to talk to a stable master. It is best to build your own stables in Ravensthorpe, unless you have already, of course. You can actually improve the performance of the mount there, except to change its appearance.
Hearthweru Starship Pack
The Hearthweru Starship Pack is a collection of skins and decorations for your ship. It costs 500 Helix Credits in the Ubisoft Store and was added there on February 2, 2021.
The pack contains the following:
- Hearthweru Hull
- Hearthweru Sailing
- Hearthweru Shields
- Hearthweru figurehead
- Hearthweru tailpiece
To change the look of your ship with any of these or any other items, visit the shipyard. If you haven’t already done so, you can build a shipyard for your payment.
The contents of this pack only visually alter the appearance of your ship. They don’t improve your browsing speed or anything else in that regard.
Hearthweru Ship Pack screenshots
Below you can see a gallery of all of these items used on the ship in the game and judge for yourself if they match your visual style well and are worth your money.
How good are Hearthweru packs
The set looks pretty cool, especially with the banner on the spear, but the set bonus is a big lack of luster. The set looks more like a knight’s armor than a viking, despite the fur accents. It’s not too exciting and you can find better options in the store and in the game.
The shield and spear aren’t very impressive in terms of increased combat performance and gameplay mods. Maybe it’s because I don’t like the defensive approach at all in this game and any other game, but this set and these weapons really lack the creativity and efficiency to inspire me to recommend them to you. , especially when they cost real money to obtain.
Of course, items from the Hearthweru Pack will one day be available in the Reda Store, but judging from the current item rotation, you shouldn’t expect to see any items from this pack available soon for Opal.
Definitely discover the AC Valhalla Armor Sets you can collect in the game before heading to the Helix store to spend real money! You can also find all AC Valhalla Weapons Guide a very handy resource for finding the best weapons in the game!
Items from Reda’s store from February 2
After taking a week off, Reda updated her shop with four new items. They are not the top of the selection available, but are decent and you might find a good reason to spend some of your opal this week.
Hrimfaxi Horse Mount Skin (Daily Supply)
Hrimfaxi costs 150 Opal to Reda. In the Helix Store, you can get it for 500 Helix Credits. This horse skin was released with the Huldofolk pack.
“A symbol of the night itself, this steed will never falter in darkness nor lead its owner astray.
This horse skin has no impact on your mount’s speed or any other ability. Its sole purpose is to change the look of the horse you are riding and give you a different visual that better matches your style and maybe the armor you are wearing.
Statue of the ferryman of the dead (weekly)
The ferryman of the dead is a decoration for your colony and quite useless unless you have piles of opal from your dailies, weeklies and Challenges.
This item can be purchased as part of the Gothic Settlement Pack, which costs 300 Helix Credits. In Reda, the price of the statue alone is 50 opals.
This item has no impact on your colony’s perks, stats, or bonuses. Its sole purpose is to look cool when you walk past. There are a number of places you can place it in the Ravensthorpe.
Celtic cross shield (weekly)
This shield’s special perk temporarily increases ability damage when blocking an attack. The shield costs 350 Helix Credits if you buy it in the store. This article was added on December 1, 2020. Reda is offering it this week for 120 Opal.
Muninn bird skin
The Muninn raven skin is part of the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Ultimate Edition. I reviewed it with the Berserker Pack when the game released in November 2020.
“A mythical crow marked with the mark of Odin. He may or may not whisper secrets ”.
The crow does not whisper secrets. He doesn’t reveal any additional information when you hover over the lands with him. This is just a cool reskin of the standard bird in the game.
