With Assassins Creed having so many resources and more than one currency, it can be confusing at times, you may have come across opal, but what is opal and how do you spend it?
What is Opal?
Opal is a special type of currency that is very rare to come across during your time in England.
It cannot be bought, nor can you trade any items in exchange for opal, it must be found or earned.
Where to spend Opal?
You will need to progress through the story for a while before being able to spend your opal.
Once you’ve progressed a little, you will be notified that someone has turned up and setup shop in Ravensthorpe, upon investigating you will meet Reda, the head of the Thousand-Eyes network.
Once Reda has setup shop you will be able to start buying items with Opal, which will include daily and weekly items, including:
- Hair styles
- Ship alterations
- Companions (Mount & Raven)
- Camp decorative items
Make sure not to rush your first purchase, Opal is a rare resource and can take some time to build up, so make sure you pick your purchase wisely.
Once Reda has setup camp he will also explain that there are other Thousand-eyes vendors scattered across the map that will also be happy to take your Opal off your hands.
You can see Thousand-Eyes members marked on the map, so they’re not hard to find once you know what the symbol looks like.
How to get Opal in Assassins Creed Valhalla?
Right from the start of your journey you might start noticing Opal on the odd occasion. It can be picked up as a random drop, however it’s not very common that you will stumble across it.
You can also speak to Reda or one of the other Thousand-Eyes members to accept contracts, which mainly involve killing people.
Once you have confirmed the kill, you will be rewarded, often with Opal. You can accept a few of these timed quests per day, so make sure to do them so that you can earn as much Opal as possible.
At the moment it would seem that contracts and being lucky enough to stumble across some are the only two ways to obtain Opal, of course if we do find other ways we will be sure to let you know.
