How to Start The Legend of Beowulf Mission
Recommended Power: 55ish.
Before you can start this season pass bonus mission you need to advance the main story of the game until you reach England. Once you are in England you will establish the settlement of Ravensthorpe. Inside this settlement you have a room with a mailbox. When you’ve completed the arc up to Sigmund leaving you will receive a letter from Wulfhilda inviting you to her small village near Brisleah Farm. This invitation starts The Legend of Beowulf mission arc.
Part 1: A Fiend out of Hell
The first part of The Legend of Beowulf mission is called A Fiend out of Hell. This section of the mission tasks you with completing a number of quest steps to advance the mission. To complete this chapter of The Legend of Beowulf mission consult the quest steps below. There are three steps you need to complete to complete this chapter.
Find and Speak to Wulfhilda
When you feel adequately powerful make your way to the East Anglia territory and visit the village on the banks of the Deod River. In this village look for a large crowd of people gathered. Approach the crowd to trigger a cutscene where the villagers will turn on you. Defeat the three enemies that attack in a fist fight to meet Wulfhilda. Wulfhilda wants you to investigate the mauled livestock.
Investigate the Mauled Livestock
After you speak to Wulfhilda you will need to collect evidence from cow corpses in the field beside the bard. The field is just south of where you had the fight and it contains a number of corpses. Use Odin’s Vision to find the evidence in this field. You need to gather four pieces of it:
- Cow Corpse.
- Speak to lady.
- Cow on roof.
- Child on the small roof.
Once you’ve interacted with these four pieces of evidence you will have completed this quest step. The evidence you’ve gathered indicates that it was possibly a group of people that killed the livestock, not some sort of beast. This realization will trigger a recreation of events.
Speak to Wulfhilda
Since you’ve gathered the evidence in support of your theory return to Wulfhilda and speak to her. She is standing beside the first corpse at the entrance to the field. When you speak to her you will walk through the theory that this is a group of people not a beast. After this interaction the A Fiend out of Hell part of the quest will be completed and you will begin the second part of the quest.
Part 2: Prey in the High Hall
Now that you’ve done some investigation it is time to gather more evidence from the older sites. Wulfhilda mentions there has been a total of three incidents with damage to the livestock being the same at all three. This revelation will start the second portion of the The Legend of Beowulf arc called Prey in the High Hall. There are a number of quest steps in this chapter for players to complete. .
Reach the First Mauling Site
From the village make your way to the northeast to reach the first mauling site. When you reach this site you will trigger a fight where you need to defeat three wolves that are attacking an old woman. Defeat the three wolves then speak to the woman to learn that her cow has gone missing. While telling you about the missing cow the old woman will give you information on a leader named Hrothgar who lost his axe.
Follow Wulfhilda to Brisleah
Leave the site of the first mauling and follow Wulfhilda to the nearby farm called Brisleah. Brisleah is the scene of a gruesome battle so there are corpses strewn about. Continue forward with Wulfhilda into the church. Inside the church you will find the remains of various members of Hrothgar’s group, but Hrothgar is not among them.
Explore the Church to Look for Hrothgar
Once you’ve made the discovery of the missing Hrothgar you will need to look around the church to find him. Hrothgar can be found on the second floor of the main room of the church. He is only accessible via the ladder on the wood platform above. You need to use your bow to shoot the ladder down so you can reach it. Once the ladder is down you are able to climb up it to reach Hrothgar. Speak to Hrothgar to trigger a cutscene.
Keep Watch with Wulfhilda then Defeat Grendel
Upon speaking to Hrothgar you and Wulfhilda will wait for Grendel in the church. To pass the time if needed interact with the button prompt on the second floor to have Eivor meditate. Once night has fallen simply stand on the second floor and wait for Grendel to appear below. When Grendel does appear you need to fight him. Defeat Grendel to complete the second chapter of the arc.
Part 3: Ever As Fate Must
When you defeat Grendel you will end the second chapter and will begin the third chapter called Ever As Fate Must. This chapter is the final chapter in The Legend of Beowulf arc. To complete this chapter you need to complete a number of quest steps I walk you through below.
Find Grendel’s Lair and Defeat the Monster
To find Grendel’s Lair you need to follow the trail of mold Grendel left behind as he made his way to the church. This trail of mold appears when you use Odin Vision and takes you to the southwest of the church. Follow the trail until you reach the a large hole in the ground called Grime’s Graves. Jump down the hole to enter it.
I the Grime’s Graves area follow the parkour pathway north until you reach the cursed area. In this cursed area destroy the skull on the center column to remove the curse. Once the curse has been lifted grab the nearby key and unlock the door. Head into the next room to encounter Mother. Defeat Mother to trigger a cutscene. Turns out Mother is the same women we spoke to at the village.
Speak to Wulfhilda to End Mission
After the interaction with Mother leave Grime’s Graves and head back to the Brisleah church. Speak to Wulfhilda and tell her what you found out about the ‘monster.’ Once you tell Wulfhilda about both of Grendel and Mother you will complete this chapter and The Legend of Beowulf mission arc. For your efforts on this mission you will earn XP as your reward.
