Boss Strategies: How to Beat Ivarr

  • Ivarr is a very clever and agile fighter that uses his surroundings to his advantage! His position around the fight area can provide clues as to which attack he will perform.
  • Ivarr will attempt an aerial attack if he is backed against a wall. Always dodge out of this attack.
  • Ivarr often feigns vulnerability to stun attacks even though his stun bar is not depleted. This is a trap that will result in a counter-attack if you attempt a stun attack during this period.
  • Ivarr may go for a double leg takedown if he is backed against a ledge. Mash the displayed button in order to avoid getting thrown off and suffer massive damage.
  • Most of Ivarr's charge attacks are a string of hard-hitting combos if the first attack connects. Always be prepared to dodge out of the way.
  • Ivarr's counter-attacks are often light attacks. Use this as an opportunity to drain his stun bar by parrying at the right times.
  • Ivarr occassionally distracts you by engaging in conversation throughout the fight. Ignore the first set of dialogue options during this time and wait for the Dodge Attack prompt to appear and select it. Selecting it at the right time allows you to dodge out of Ivarr's attack during the conversation.

Ivarr Choices: Send Over to Valhalla or Deny?

WARNING: This section contains spoilers. Read on if you do NOT mind spoilers.

This decision is ultimately inconsequential to the overall story of Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

Simply choose which dialogue option resonates with them more after considering the revelations that lead to Ivarr's boss fight.

It is important to note, however, that whatever you decide here ties into a major decision with Ubba later in Quatford.

Ubba Choices: Tell the Truth or Lie?

WARNING: This section contains spoilers. Read on if you do NOT mind spoilers.

Converse with Ubba at Quatford's longhouse. You have a choice to tell Ubba the truth or lie about what you've done after the boss fight with Ivarr.

This is a major decision that will affect the events of another quest later on!

Telling the Truth, regardless of what you did, positively affects the events that unfold during the Reap What Was Sown quest in Ravensthorpe later on.

Ubba will arrive in Ravensthorpe and to speak with you. He will give you a silver ring as a token of appreciation for your honesty.

Lying to Ubba, however, negatively affects the events during the Reap What Was Sown quest in Ravensthorpe later on.

An angry Ubba will storm into Ravensthorpe and request an audience with you. The heated conversation will culminate in a brawl.

Take note that the third option: He Wanted Death is only considered the truth if you sent Ivarr to Valhalla after his boss fight.
