The quest starts in Magnis Fortress immediately after the final cutscene of the Honor's Hubris quest.
EnlargeReturn to the Royal Hall
|Head to the Royal Hall of Jorvik.|
EnlargeWitness Halfdan's coronation
|Halfdan and Faravid are located on the northern wall outside of the Royal Hall.
Speak to Halfdan inside the Royal Hall to initiate the coronation.
Dialogue options during the cutscene will determine the ending of The Sayings of Halfdan story arc.
The "You are insane, Halfdan." option will result in Faravid's exile and a strained relationship between you and Halfdan.
The "Stand down or fight me, Faravid." option will result in a boss fight.
The Sayings of Halfdan story arc ends once you have dealt with the consequences of choosing between Halfdan or Faravid.

Click here to see our take on whether Faravid was really a traitor or not!
This is one of the most controversial topics in Assassin's Creed Valhalla simply because The Sayings of Halfdan story arc's endings did not give a clear-cut answer of whether Faravid was a traitor or not — leaving players to speculate Faravid's true allegiance for themselves.
Our take on the topic is that Faravid did not intentionally try to poison Halfdan.
His actions and dialogue during the endings suggest this. At first, Faravid is appalled at the accusation and pleads his innocence to us. He ultimately comes around and accepts his fate — whether it be death or exile.
This may be due to Faravid's realization that even though he is not a traitor, the lead cups that he gifted to Halfdan throughout the years may have, in fact, resulted in the latter's descent into madness.
The same realization eventually transformed Faravid's anger into remorse — further explaining his actions and final words before his death or exile.
