In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, players will come across areas with strong spiritual energies called Standing Stones. On a rock in the center, there’s a symbol that players must recreate by using Odin’s Sight and positioning themselves in the correct spot. These Standing Stones challenges can be difficult, and the one at Tionontate:ken takes things to the next level by adding a new obstacle. The solution to most of these is as simple as using Odin’s Sight and standing in the correct spot, but this one has a few extra steps that might catch players off guard if they are not aware of them ahead of time.
Completing these and other mysteries is the primary way for Eivor to gain experience in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, ultimately allowing them to grow stronger and tackle bigger threats. Though it’s by no means required, players will want to solve these Standing Stones puzzles in particular as they reward one skill point instead of experience points.
For the Standing Stones puzzle at Tionontate:ken, players should first head to the marked stone in the center and carefully examine the symbol shown. After listening to Brendan of Clonfert’s ramblings, it’s time to solve the puzzle. Before players can visualize the symbol marked on the rocks, they’ll need to move a few obstacles out of the way first. There are two large stones that can be dragged out of the way. When facing the initial rock with the carving on it, head straight past it to find the first one. Push this so it doesn’t block the symbols on the rock behind it.
Directly behind this one is yet another large rock that can be moved, and it also needs to be pushed out of the way. Now, turn around and face the rock players started at and climb up the two standing stones that are in line with each other. While standing atop the tallest one, there should be markings next to Eivor’s feet. Position the camera so that these markings form the bottom of the symbol along with the ones that were initially blocked by the rocks. This should bring players one step closer to exploring everything there is to do in Vinland.
Players may have to finagle the camera a bit, but this should complete the puzzle and unlock one more skill point. The maximum power level in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is 400, and these easy skill points will be vital to getting there. Players can now continue to explore Vinland at their liesure.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
