How to Start the Elk of Bloody Peaks Hunt

The first legendary animal you are able to hunt in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the Elk of Bloody Peaks. This hunt will introduce you to how the legendary animal system works in the game. Basically throughout the different areas you will encounter animals that are far different than normal animals.

To learn more about these legendary animals you can build the Hunter’s Hut at your settlement. Here you will meet an NPC named Wallace who will keep track of the legendary animals you may have encountered in your travels. The elk is described in the Hunting Log as follows:

“One peakland hunter spoke of seeing this wild elk, with three still-living men impaled on each one of its horns, blood dripping from them, like simple ornaments of death.”

To start hunting this animal you need to simply head to its spawn location in Norway. Once there you will be able to hunt it. There is more information on the exact location of the legendary elk location below.

This legendary elk can be found on the Norway map in the area of Rygjafylke. The exact location is in the mountains to the west of Fornburg. Here there is a mystery on your map. When you reach the location the blue mystery dot will turn into a paw print suggesting a legendary animal is near.

How to Fight the Elk of Bloody Peaks

Fighting this legendary elk is a fairly standard affair. This animal will mainly charge at you as its primary attack. Side step the charge then follow up with an attack. If you dodge successfully the animal can slip causing it to fall over for a brief moment. This gives you ample time to get some damage in. Since this is a level 1 fight you should have no problem taking this beast down.

Rewards for Killing the Elk of Bloody Peaks

When you defeat the elk you will receive a number of rewards for completing the hunt. These rewards are +1 Rygjafylke mystery, XP, 12 Leather and the Elk of Bloody Peaks’ Head. Take the head back to Wallace at the Hunter’s Hut and give it to him to complete the hunt. Wallace will also give you the Skrati Scheme (arms) tattoo for your troubles.

The Elk of Bloody Peaks is the first of nine total legendary animals for players to hunt in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Completing all nine hunts will unlock the legendary hunting trophy.

    “Side step the charge” Clearly we’re playing two different games…because dodging just shoots me off away from him…and moving out of the way isn’t practical since he spins mind charge like a fucking top…great. so helpful.

    I don’t think this is the location, as there are two identical heads above Eivor’s bed as well

      Also Petra is the tanner’s sister and doesn’t live in the long house. Only Eivor, Sigurd, and his wife have beds in the longhouse, at least I’m fairly sure. I just can’t seem to find this “trophy proudly displayed in the longhouse” anywhere in the longhouse.
