Assassin's Creed Valhalla

Full Skill Tree and List of All Skills

This page is a list of all the skills in the game Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Read on to see the list of all the skills, the different skill trees, and their effects in the game.

Introduction to Skills

There are a total of 38 skills in the game which the player can get by acquiring skill points. Skill points are required to activate both the stat nodes and the skill nodes.

Two types of nodes are present in the Skill Tree. When either of these are activated by using skill points, they will either enhance the player's stats or allow them to use a skill in the game.

Stat Node This node enhances one of the player's stats, or enhances the stats of a Gear that is in the same alignment.
Skill Node This node allows the player to use the unlocked skill in the game.

To unlock a skill, the player must activate stat nodes going towards the desired skill and use a skill point on it. This allows the player to use the unlocked skill in the game.
