ACV: Title Update 1.3.1

Loyal ACV gamers will be delighted to hear of three new weapons being added to the game as part of Title Update 1.3.1. Three different skill nodes are being granted the following weapons:

  • Short sword - Greatsword skill node
  • Scythe - Spear skill node
  • Sickle - Seax skill node

This should be a great addition as the excitement surrounding the short sword, in particular, had been buzzing over the last few weeks. The update also included general patchwork as XP from daily quests, Longships spawning in River Raids, and numerous NPC behavioral issues were all addressed.

River Raids Update

A main attraction of the latest title update, River Raids got a major refresh as three new Rivers were added to the game mode, Berbha, Rhine, and Erriff. With the new content added to River Raids, gamers have the opportunity to face two River Champions and the new Champions of the Faith for a chance to unlock new weapons.

There are three new abilities that can be found in the River Raids monasteries:

  • Precision Axe Throw - Eivor performs a devastating axe throw that targets an enemy's weak point.
  • Percussion Arrow - Hit an enemy's Shield to create a shockwave that staggers and damages nearby enemies.
  • Spinning Harpoon - Eivor performs a spinning attack that can be combined with other harpoon-based abilities. Enemies caught in the spin are knocked back.
