IN Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Wrath of the Druids DLC, Eivor plays kingmaker again. After Eivor joined his cousin on an Irish island, he managed to appoint Flanna Sinna as a high king, despite a conspiracy to disgrace the druids.
At the height of the story, fearing for the stability and Christian future of their homeland, the petty Irish kings forced Flanna to persecute the entire Druid population, despite protests from his longtime adviser and poet Ciara.
Disturbed by the prospect of her family and friends being forced to leave her culture, Ciara flees to Tuam to awaken an ancient stone monolith — probably a large piece of Eden — and unleash her power against Flann and the other kings.
After defeating Ciara and the mind-controlled warriors Piece of Eden in battle, Eivor is faced with a difficult choice.
Should they kill Ciara so that the power of the monolith could never be used again? Or should they save Ciara’s life and find another way to solve the problem?
Here’s what happens when you choose one of the options. As you would expect, take it as spoiler warning for what happens after both elections.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Wrath of the Druids | Should you kill or save Ciara?
During your adventures in Ireland, Ciara was a friendly friend of Eivor and a wise adviser to Flanna Sinny. But after she showed the full range of power she could use, it would be difficult for her to return to normal life.
Although Ciara regrets her actions, she still begs Eivor to kill her so that she cannot be reused by malicious entities.
Without going into too much detail at first, you can choose one of the options and the result will be pretty much the same.
See the lists below for a more detailed explanation.
If you decide to save Ciara:
- Despite its importance to the Druids and her ancestors, if you save Ciara’s life, she is convinced that the monolith will destroy and remove its power from the world.
- Flann apologizes to Caia and is committed to protecting the true druids in Ireland
- Ciara leaves Flann’s court to live far away from people who might try to use her power
- In the next scene, Flann tells Eivor that the Inquisition has been stopped and Eivor remakes that Ciara would be happy with the outcome.
If you decide to kill Ciara:
- Eivor hits Ciara down, to the dismay of Flann, who himself destroys the monolith
- Then a very similar scene is played, where Flann tells Eivor that the Inquisition has been stopped, and Eivor sadly remarks that Ciara would be pleased.
Basically, the only difference between the two seems to be that Ciara is dead. In both results, the monolith is destroyed and the Inquisition is stopped.
So you have the opportunity to save Ciara’s life if you wish – with very small consequences.
