Skills for Assassin's Creed Valhalla is a combat and character mechanic that fully shapes Eivor in and out of battle. Skills provide both passive and active effects on the main protagonist which grant access to battle mechanics and moves which can benefit in and out of battle, as well as to create a specific build that suits a player's play style. This page covers a full list of all the skills that can be unlocked and discovered in the game.

  • Assassin's Creed Valhalla has one skill tree, broken into three "branches."
  • Each branch of the tree contains 135 unlockable skills organized by color/clan, and unlocking skills from a given branch supports a specific playstyle:
    • Yellow (Raven Clan) skills increase Stealth capabilities.
    • Red (Bear Clan) skills increase Melee capabilities.
    • Blue (Wolf Clan) skills increase Ranged capabilities.
    • Each branch contains nodes that increase health and resistance.
    • Each branch has a Mastery node - near the center of the tree - that increases damage/resistance/health.
    • Mastery Points are earned separately from Skill Points, and can be used to invested in a given Mastery node multiple times.
  • For every skill unlocked, Eivor gains 1 Global Power.
  • Max Global Power - once all skills are unlocked - is 406.
  • Mastery node investment does not increase Eivor's displayed Global Power.

Note: Aside from Skills, AC Valhalla's progression system also features Abilities, unlocked by finding Books of Knowledge throughout the world. See Abilities for more.

How to Get Skill Points

Players gain Skill Points by gaining Experience, which is done by completing quests, exploring Locations, undergoing Raids, Completing World Events, defeating Enemies and Bosses. How much Experience you gain is thought to be based on your current "level", and the difficulty of the enemy defeated. For more information on this please see the Skill Points & Experience page.


How to Spend Skill Points

You can spend your skill points at any time by accessing the pause menu and navigating to the "Skills" tab. The points menu is available via the ?? Button on Xbox, ?? on Playstation and Y on PC.


Can I Respec My Skill Points?

You can reallocate your skillpoints at anytime without any cost, from the Skills menu.
