Thanks to the recent release of Update 1.2.0 for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players now have a new way to change the look of their Eivor using Transmog. Transmog, if you didn’t already know, is a system that allows you to equip any piece of armor you visually desire. This means you can run around with one visual piece of armor with the underlying stats of another piece. If that sounds good to you then read on. Below I will show you how to Transmog in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Transmog System in AC Valhalla

To Transmog in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla first ensure you’ve downloaded Update 1.2.0. This update is roughly 12-18 GB in size and contains the new Transmog system (among other things). Once you have the update installed login to the game and head to the blacksmith, Gunnar, in Ravensthorpe. Speak to Gunnar like you normally would to upgrade your armor or weapons. On the upgrade screen you can now tab over to a new Change Appearance screen. This screen allows you to change the visual appearance of the armor piece or weapon for 50 Silver to that of another gear piece.

If you do opt to change the appearance of armor or weapons the new gear/weapon will be marked with a star in your inventory. This star indicates you’ve visually altered that piece. A Transmogged piece of gear can be continually changed and reverted back, so don’t worry about changes being permanent or irreversible. Instead worry about the hefty 50 Silver price tag Ubisoft has opted to slap onto this previously free feature.

That’s all you need to know to Transmog/change the appearance of your armor and weapons in AC Valhalla. The introduction of this system allows for greater flexibility in how your Eivor looks. Transmog wasn’t the only thing added during this update. The game received a new event called the Ostara Festival. See our guide on the Ostara Festival for more details.
