Who is The Vault?

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

Audun is The Vault.

This decision does not bear any weight in The City of Greed story arc since Audun will reveal his true identity by admitting that he poisoned the wine during the cutscene — regardless of who you accused as The Vault.

It is important to note, however, that accusing Hjorr will slightly affect the final cutscene of the Closing The Vault quest.

Ljufvina and Hjorr will not give Eivor an arm ring to symbolize their allegiance to the raven clan during the final cutscene but ensures him that the three of them are still dear friends and will come to his aid when needed.

It is currently uncertain if this particular exchange has any weight in Assassin's Creed Valhalla's story going forward.

Alliance Map Update

A new territory will show up on Randvi's Alliance Map after reporting to her and Hytham about the events that transpired in Lunden.
