First up, if you are reading this guide, you probably don't mind spoilers for the "Bleeding the Leech" quest in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Consider this a spoiler warning as we continue below the image.

In the Bleeding the Leech quest, you will be tasked to kill an Order member known only as The Leech. 

The Leechbook in Assassin's Creed Valhalla is creepy, to say the least, as the Order member wrote down their experiments of dissecting people, all in the name of "medicine". 

After you've dispatched The Leech, you will return to Erke at the docks.

The NPCs instinct will be to burn the Leechbook but as with many other quests in Assassin's Creed Valhalla, you have a choice to make: Burn the Leechbook, or keep it.

This is one of the many moral choices in Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and thankfully, it doesn't affect the outcome of the game.

Learn about the consequences for either burning the Leechbook or keeping it for yourself below.

Burn the Leechbook:

Eivor will throw the book into the fire right away, and both the protagonist as well as Erke will agree it is "not worth its weight in blood".

Keep the Leechbook: 

Eivor will explain how burning the Leechbook will discard the knowledge so many people had to die for. Deciding to keep it will preserve the cures found by the Order member. If you decide to keep the Leechbook, you can put the nasty book on the bench at the end of your bed in your settlement room. It acts as a reminder of your decision.

After the "Bleeding the Leech" quest, you will never hear from the book again, and it will not affect the greater, overarching story of Assassin's Creed Valhalla one bit.
