What could be better than taking care of your brothers after a battle filled with blood and sweat? Assassin's Creed Valhalla allows players to take over the stewardship of Ravensthorpe, a growing settlement thanks to your efforts and those of your fellow warriors. In this guide, we go through all of its possibilities, with many guides associated with more precise points of the management of your base. It's ultimately a fairly simple system, but which fits perfectly into the heart of your exploration, since the scenario will regularly ask you to return there to choose the terrain of your next conquest.
The settlement isn't just a side activity of Assassin's Creed Valhalla: through your installations, you will unlock new areas of gameplay or story, very important for the continuation of Eivor's adventure. Whenever you have the chance, stop your conquest of England and simply take the time to visit your home.
Anyone is likely to ask you something for a favor, and there are often nice rewards to be found, like active skills, the ones you usually get from Books of Knowledge. It's also recommended that you consult the mail, it's not only there to do and they are also likely to lead you on other adventures.
