Want to find the Zealot locations in AC Valhalla? If you've stumbled across a Zealot by accident, you'll certainly know about it. These enforcers of the AC Valhalla Order of the Ancients are incredibly tough and will make short work of you if you attempt to fight one without preparation and an adequate skill level. If you do come close to one but manage to go undetected, you'll notice that a white helmet marker has been added to your map. This shows you the exact location of that particular Zealot, should you want to face the fight when you've had more time to prepare.

Three of these Zealots also carry Treasure of Britain tablets, so if you've got your heart set on the AC Valhalla Excalibur sword, you're going to need to fight and defeat those three at least. One of the early quests requires you to burn a scroll with your name on it to prevent the Zealots from hunting you down. However, if you're planning on taking them all on, leaving the scroll alone is a sure way to bring them to you. While this means that you won't have to waste time locating them individually, this may difficult to handle at this point in the game, so think carefully.

If you're ready for a challenge, here's how to discover each of the 15 AC Valhalla Zealot locations scattered throughout 9th century England.

How to find Zealots in AC Valhalla

You can check the status of Zealots by opening the 'Order' page in your menu. They are listed down the left and right sides of the page, bordering the central Order of the Ancients members. Undiscovered Zealots will have their icons blacked out, while Zealots you've stumbled across will be revealed. This guide will work clockwise around the menu, starting from the top and moving down the right side.

Many Zealots patrol entire regions, so patience is required if you want to avoid wandering aimlessly. The good news is that once you've triggered their white shield on the map, the game will track their location. This makes them much easier to find when you're ready to fight them.  

Speaking of which, remember that each Zealot's difficulty is not necessarily tied to the zone they patrol. So keep this in mind if you plan to attack one in a low-level area.

  • Location: Glowecestrescire
  • Suggested Power: 280

You'll find Beorhtsige riding around the roads of Glowecestrescire. I found him north-west of Thieves Warren, riding along the road heading east. If you have the patience, you can wait here. You'll be alerted when he rides into range.

Wealdmaer

  • Location: Sciropescire
  • Suggested Power: 160

Wealdmaer rides along the main roads of Sciropescire. I came across him south-west of Quatford and west of Wenlocan Abbey, travelling south. If you have the patience, you can wait here until he rides into range.

Cola

  • Location: Eurviscire and Lincolnscire
  • Suggested Power: 90

Cola can be found in most supermarkets, usually in the drinks aisle. Just kidding. He's in the far south of Eurviscire, patrolling along the road into Lincolnscire. I found him in the south-eastern corner of Eurviscire, just south of Fiscartun.

Callin

  • Location: Eurvicscire
  • Suggested Power: 280

Callin can be found riding along the roads of Eurvicscire. I found him in the south-eastern corner of the region, on the road north-east of Rodestan Monolith.

Eorforwine

  • Location: Grantebridgescire
  • Suggested Power: 90

You can find Eorforwine patrolling the main roads of Grantebridgescire. She rides around in the forested area north-west of Utbech. As the area is relatively small, hanging out near the main road should reveal her fairly quickly.

Redwalda

  • Location: Ledecestrescire
  • Suggested Power: 90

You can find Redwalda patrolling the roads in Ledecestrescire. I regularly spotted her close to Venonis, a large Roman ruin located just north of Alcestre Monastery. Whether her patrol path is quite short or I was just lucky, I don't know. But you shouldn't have to wait long to find her.

Wuffa

  • Location: East Anglia
  • Suggested Power: 160

Wuffa rides along the main roads of East Anglia. I found her on the road west of Theotford and east of Grantebridge.

Kendall

  • Location: Grantebridgescire
  • Suggested Power: 90

Kendall patrols the main roads of Grantebridgescire in the area around Walden and Wandrie. I located him right next to the synchronisation point at Black Peak. The main road ends here, so he rode past me before turning around and heading back the way he came.

Osgar

  • Location: Lincolnscire
  • Suggested Power: 220

Osgar can be found riding the roads of Lincolnscire. I found him travelling on the road just north-west of Cruwland.

Horsa

  • Location: Oxenefordscire
  • Suggested Power: 130

You'll find Horsa roaming the main roads of Oxenefordscire to the north of the river. He travels on foot, so may be a little harder to spot. I located him at the north-east corner of the region, just south of where Oxenefordscire meets Ledecestrescire and Grantebridgescire.

Cudberct

  • Location: Oxenefordscire

Hrothgar

  • Location: Suthsexe
  • Suggested Power: 280

Hrothgar was especially tricky to find. He's supposed to roam all over Suthsexe, but I eventually found him horseless and stood in one spot. Specifically, he was on the road right next to the Hamtunscire border and directly east of Fearnhamme.

Bercthun

  • Location: Hamtunscire
  • Suggested Power: 340

Bercthun patrols the main roads of Hamtunscire. I found him on foot, walking along the road north-west of Wincestre and south of Wocig.

Woden patrols the main roads of Cent. I found him on the road between the synchronisation points of Canterbury and the one south-east of Tonbridge Monastery. He was travelling down the road just south of the group of ponds. 

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
