The new DLC of the last chapter of the Ubisoft saga has arrived. This DLC catapults you into 9th century Ireland. A new land, obviously, could only hide additional risks for Eivor. In fact, a new cult, called The Children of Danu, is operating in the shadows. The Children of Danu are mostly druids who oppose the birth of a Christian kingdom. Your task, both in the main questline and in the endgame, will be to eliminate all 10 members of the cult. Compared to the Order of the Ancients, this is nothing more than a small organization. However, size does not always matter! Here is my Assassin’s Creed Valhalla The Children of Danu guide.
RUAIDRÍ, HE OF THE PORTS (THE DEER)
The first clue will be obtained by killing The Cursed, one of the High Druids. You will find the second clue by inspecting the Ardmel trading post in Ulaidh. This outpost is located east of Lough Beg. Once you have eliminated all the enemies in the area, exit the east gate and then head south along the walls.
You will find the clue further on in a closed cauldron next to the stream. Once you have found these two clues, the Deer will reveal itself and you can mark it. It will be located on a well-protected islet just south of the Ardmel trading post. It usually stands along the shore to look at the lake. Once killed, you will get a clue regarding the Seed.
CONLAE (THE BLAZE)
The first clue will be obtained by killing the Ash, one of the High Druids. You will find the second clue on a tomb near the Bally na Gall waterfall, a burnt village on the Bann, in the southeast of Ulaidh. Once in the village, pay attention to the wolves that live there. Kill them and head to the waterfall to the east. Go up the slope slightly and you will find the cemetery with the grave in question. You will find the last clue by inspecting the burnt houses between Black Pig’s Dyke and Clogher, in southern Ulaidh.
Don’t worry, the place in question will be clearly visible thanks to the immense column of smoke that rises from it. Once in the village, or rather what remains of it, head towards the cottage stated in the given photo. Inside you will find the clue placed on a table next to a chest. Once you have found all the clues, The Blaze will also reveal itself. You can then mark it to better follow its path. This member wanders nearby to set fire to cottages and fields near the site of the third clue.
AIDEEN, MERCHANT OF DUBLIN (THE SPIDER)
The first clue will be obtained by killing the Whisper, one of the High Druids. The second clue will be obtained by defeating the drinking champion in the Dublin Brewery. You will find the last clue by inspecting the area at the tallest tree in Dublin. Once you have found all the clues, The Spider will reveal itself. Finding it will not be difficult. Just go to the Dublin market and you will find your target in front of a stand, without even a guard to shield it. Kill her with a sneak attack if you want to speed things up a bit.
NIAMH, THE POET (THE WREN)
Next up in my Assassin’s Creed Valhalla The Children of Danu guide, we have The Wren. You will get the first clue following a conversation with Ciara during the “Potion of Blood” mission. You will find the second clue by inspecting an abandoned cottage on the shore near Port Auley, the trading post at the mouth of the Ballysadare River in northern Connacht. Follow the river north and you will eventually come to this small harbor for the quick trip.
Turn 180 degrees inland from the sea and you will see the abandoned cottage. Enter and you will find the clue on some bags. You will find the last clue at a ritual stone located on an islet in Lough Gara, near Rathcroghan. From Port Auley head to the lake to the south. Once there, look for the stone and you will find the last clue. This will be the first cult member you will find.
In fact, it is during the “Potion of Blood” mission that we come into contact for the first time with The Children of Danu. You cannot therefore miss this target, as it is the objective of a main mission. You will find the target while walking in the square of Rathcroghan, the one with a huge puppet, so to speak. The target will never walk alone. Killing her will unlock a clue regarding the Cursed.
BÉCC MAC NATH-Í, HE OF THE OCEANS (THE SEED)
The first clue will be obtained by killing the Deer, one of the Lords. The second clue will be obtained during the mission “The Wages of War”. You will find the last clue by inspecting the Movilla Abbey, in the north of the eastern Ulaidh peninsula. Assault the abbey with your crew to make the task easier and collect the loot. Go up the hill on which they built the abbey and enter the church built on top. You will find the clue on a bench to the left, shortly after the supply chest for the outpost.
It will be impossible not to eliminate this target because, just as it happened for the Wren, this will also be the goal of a main mission. As reported in the clue obtained by the Deer, the Seed lives in the fortress of Dunseverick, in the far north of Ireland. More precisely, you can find him inside the highest tower. By killing him, you will find a clue regarding the Oak.
THE HIGH DRUIDS
CUMMASCACH (THE ASH)
You can kill The Ash directly, without having to collect all the clues. To find its location, all you have to do is follow the mission “Trade: The Ivory Post” which will allow you to unlock the commercial outpost of Port Auley. After clearing the site and inspecting the fort for clues, this mission will send you back to Kesh Corann. Once you have eliminated the enemies, head to one of the bonfires and look for white triangles drawn on the rock.
Nearby you will notice the entrance to a cave closed by a destructible wall. To open it, you can use the ranged ability “Incendiary Powder Trap”. Enter by eliminating the various enemies, follow the stairs, and look for a crevice with destructible crates inside. Continue through this ravine and you will come to a cave with two enemies inside, one of which is your target. Killing him will give you a clue regarding The Blaze.
LEASLEACH, MADWOMAN OF THE BOGS (THE WHISPER)
The first clue will be obtained by killing the Mist, one of the High Druids. You can find the second clue by inspecting the wooded hill of Bayne Tombs, west of the Rathdown encampment in Meath. Once you get there, eliminate the four guards, and look for the clue on the crates. You can find the last clue by inspecting the ritual stone circle at the marina along the Bayne River.
Pay close attention to the enemies in the area, as they will use the mist to create hallucinations. Once you have collected all the clues, you will reveal his identity and you can mark him by seeing his exact location on the map. As the name implies, you can find the Whisper in the swamps. The exact location is unknown. By killing her, you will get a clue regarding the Spider.
TRIAN (THE MIST)
Next up in my Assassin’s Creed Valhalla The Children of Danu guide, we have The Mist. You can also kill The Mist directly. To eliminate him, you will have to go to Doon’s fort, where you will find the objective along with his followers. Pay close attention to the hallucinogenic mist that invades the area. Killing him will give you a clue regarding the Whisper. As you will notice, killing The Mist is actually a straightforward task!
SÉTNAE (THE CURSED)
The first clue will be obtained by killing the Wren, one of the Lords. The second clue will be obtained by returning to Ciara to discuss the found note and the fragment of amber. You will find the third clue by inspecting the cottage in Tuam, a village in West Connacht. However, contrary to what the mission claims, you will not have to access a cottage. In fact, you just need to sneak into the hole in the ground that you find south of the village. Take note that you can safely dive in as there is water at the bottom.
Follow the road and eliminate the various enemies that will present themselves. Ciara will give the last clue to you at the southern entrance of Tuam. As you can guess, this target is part of a main mission and therefore you will not run the risk of missing it. You just need to follow the various mission markers to meet her. Pay close attention to the werewolf who helps the druid and the various followers in the area. Killing her will give you clues about the Oak and the Deer.
THE SUPREME DRUID
EOGAN MAC CARTAIGH (THE OAK)
The first clue will be obtained by killing the Cursed. You will get the second clue by killing the Seed. Once you have collected all the clues, you will discover that the Oak is Eogan mac Cartaigh, however you cannot mark him. This is because you will have to kill him during the main mission. This will therefore lead to the extermination of the cult, assuming you have eliminated all the other members.
