Combat is a significant part of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and healing is essential. While there are many stealth mechanics and playstyles viable in the game, recovering your health is vital in all aspects of Valhalla. You will undoubtedly take some damage at one point or another and lose chunks of your health. Mastering the ability to heal will save you more than a few times during the game. Here’s how to heal in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
How to heal in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
There are two ways to heal in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but the primary way to heal is by consuming rations. You can consume rations by pressing the H key on PC or right on the D-pad on PlayStation. You can think of rations as a type of meter that slowly fills up over time by collecting different items while your health is full.
Items that affect your rations are readily available in the wild, and they come in various forms like mushrooms, berries, and more. Search through containers and barrels while you are exploring new areas and raiding camps. Interact with plants when you’re out in the wild. Be on the lookout for food when you are at certain camps, as well. That is the most effective way to fill your rations.
All of these things will increase your rations and keep them at maximum capacity. You can only have a single ration at the beginning of the game. However, this increases over time as you become more powerful, allowing you to carry more.
The other way to heal in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is by looting the berries and other food in the wild while you’re missing health. Doing so will automatically heal you. Different berries and consumables affect different stats. Some can restore adrenaline or stamina, while others restore your health. Try to pay attention to what you are looting and how it affects you to use your environment to your advantage when in combat or a sticky situation.
