Thorgrim’s Dying Breath Location In AC Valhalla

Map Location for Thorgrim’s Dying Breath AC Valhalla

Unlike the Fiery Warsong (an Atgeir added in the new DLC), Thorgrim’s Dying Breath is relatively easy to unlock. Since you don’t have to wander across the whole map to collect components, you can get the whole weapon from one individual location. 

On a side note, if you are interested in knowing more about the Fiery Warsong, here is our guide on AC Valhalla Fiery Warsong Atgeir Location. Or you can try the correct answers to the Flyting challenges in AC Valhalla by reading our guide.

Coming back to the main subject of this guide, even though the weapon is not spread across the map, the developers have found a way to hide it away creatively. The details of the location are below. 

Thorgrim’s dying breath is near the dam, in the swamp area at the north edge of the map in Svaladal. Use the above image as a reference to see the item’s exact location on the map. Once you get to this location, you will see two houses that have been partially submerged in water. 

The weapon is in one of the houses in a chest that is protected by a locked door. The door can be unlocked using a key obtained from the other house. The details are as follows. On the subject of weapons, read our AC Valhalla best Hunter bows and bows guide if you want to ace the ranged combat in the game.

Getting The Key

Once you reach the map location, position yourself to see the houses in front of you while facing northwest. The key is in the house to your left and the weapon is in the house on your right. Move towards the house on your left and dive inside the swamp. If you ping, you can see a key upstairs. Now the tricky part is getting inside the house. Although it might seem unconventional, you can enter the house through a path that is submerged in water.  

Find a Way Into The First Building 

Dive straight down between the two houses, and you’ll see an opening in the house’s base to your left. Turn to the left, swim inside the building, and go upstairs. Once you resurface inside the building, head to the upper floor using the next set of stairs. The key to the chest will be on top of a box right in front of you. Take the key and make your way outside. Now move on to the next building. 

The Locked Door 

Once you have the key, turn around and jump outside from the door behind you. When you come out facing east, head to the next building. When you approach the building, you will notice an open window. Head inside the building by climbing through that window and then turn right. Here you will see a locked door. You can now use the key to unlock this door. Now all you need to do is find the chest with the weapon. 

Finding The Treasure Chest

As you enter the locked room, you will notice some hanging weights on your right. Shoot the pully that is supporting the weights. This will cause the weights to fall on the floor and make an opening as they fall. All you have to do now is drop into that hole and ping. This will show you the location of the treasure chest. 

Even if you get disoriented in the water, remember that the chest will be in front of you if you face southwest. Once you open the chest, it will give you the weapon as a reward. 

Now that was all that you needed to know about AC Valhalla Thorgrim’s Dying Breath Location. 

Thorgrim’s Dying Breath Weapon Stats

Now that we have covered the weapon’s location let’s look at its in-game description, perks, stats, and master the usage of this weapon with other skills in AC Valhalla.  

The in-game description of the weapon reads as “Cursed by the dying breath of its creator who was felled by its sharp kiss.” 

From its looks, the weapon has a nice dwarven feel to it. The weapon looks robust and sturdy. The image above shows an in-game screenshot of the actual weapon.  

Compared to the other Atgeirs, Thorgrim’s Dying breath is relatively normal-sized. However, the blade on this Atgeir is huge, giving it its dwarven touch. 

Thorgrim’s Dying Breath Weapon Perks 

The Atgeir only has a single perk on it. Which is quite befitting for a weapon that deals heavy damage. The description of the perk is as follows. 

  • Heavy Critical hits knock enemies on the ground. 

The single perk on this weapon may not seem like much. However, when combined with ist extraordinary stats and unique fighting style of the Atgeir, it can deal some serious damage. For players that prefer damage-based play over stealth, then Thorgrim’s Dying breath is the perfect weapon choice. For a defense playstyle, read our AC Valhalla best shields guide and take your pick. 

As we shall see in the next section, the critical chance in this Atgeir is quite huge. So, this means that you will knock down enemies if you perform heavy swings using this weapon.
