As the Oxenefordscire questline in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla begins to heat up, players will find themselves facing Fiery Ambush. This is a quest that involves some dialogue options as well as unique ambush opportunities. Along the way, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players will have to meet Fulk and even fight alongside her.
Fortunately, there are no major storyline decisions in the mission, but Fiery Ambush can quickly turn aside if players make the wrong choice. For those players looking to complete this quest, this guide can help.
How to start a fiery ambush?
Fiery Ambush started at a site called Eatun Barn, just south of Leah Villa Garrison, in the South West of this part of England. To start this quest, the player needs to find Fulk in front of the easternmost building. Approaching her activates a cutscene that presents the player with some options.
This dialogue can go one of three ways : Players can spend silver to bribe the natives and avoid a fight, they can initiate a fight, or use their charm to scare the natives away. Fortunately, players only need to complete a few flying missions to use this charm option. If players decide to find a solution through combat, they’ll need to defeat three enemies, one of which is the challenging Thickskull.
How to ambush reinforcements?
A cutscene takes the player into a short period of time before reinforcements will appear at the Eatun Barn to pick up supplies. During this short break, players should focus on collecting as many oil cans as possible and placing them on the roadside and on the west side of the trees. With some pots in place and reinforcements en route, the best place players can find to launch an ambush is on the southern cliffs.
From the overhanging tree, the player can see enemy troops walking up the tree along the road. When enough arrows are in range, fire any arrow from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to ignite the explosives and launch an ambush. Players then need to eliminate all remaining enemies to complete the mission. Most of the roads are covered with flammable dry grass, players need to be careful not to accidentally set themselves on fire. After the battle, the player needs to talk to Fulke (on the southern cliff) to complete this quest.
