Assassin's Creed Valhalla Brings Back Fan Requested Feature With a Cost

One of the most requested features from fans regarding Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Valhalla has been Transmog, which in Odyssey allowed you to assign your weapon the visual look of any weapon you'd already unlocked while keeping the stats of the currently equipped weapon. It meant you could have your cake and eat it too, and included not just weapons but also armor. It wasn't available at Valhalla's launch and fans have been clamoring for it ever since, and now the day is finally here where fans can do just that in Valhalla, but this time there is a catch, as each time you do it there's a cost.
To initiate this process you need to head to Gunnar's shop in Ravensthorpe, and when you do you can pay him 50 silver to customize your weapons and armor to appear like other weapons in your collection. As you might expect, this isn't going over so smoothly with some, who compare it to Odyssey.
The highly anticipated Change Appearance feature (or Transmog) is coming tomorrow to Gunnar's shop in Ravensthorpe! For a small bit of silver, customize your armor and weapons to look like other pieces from your collection! pic.twitter.com/1hzJ7o5cEW— Assassin's Creed (@assassinscreed) March 15, 2021
In Odyssey, all you had to do was open a menu and change as you go, and it was completely free, so you do have to go out of your way a bit more to make this happen in Valhalla.
Personally, I'm just happy to have the feature in Valhalla and understand tying it to Ravensthorpe. Valhalla is a different game and has a different structure compared to Odyssey because of Ravensthorpe and how closely everything is tied to it, so it makes sense to utilize your blacksmith in this way. As for the cost, not really sure why they chose to stick 50 silver to it. I mean, silver is pretty easy to come by in the latter parts of the game, so the fee is nominal, but would be interested to know why they changed it.
The good news is if you want to change your appearance, it's there, and you can find the official description for Assassin's Creed Valhalla below.
"Driven from Norway by endless wars and dwindling resources in ninth century AD, players will lead Eivor's clan of Norsemen across the icy North Sea to the rich lands of England's broken kingdoms. Players must carve out a new future for their clan, reliving the ruthless fighting style of Viking warriors with a revamped combat system that includes the ability to dual-wield weapons against a greater variety of enemies than ever before. To secure resources, players can lead raids to select locations using their longship to earn much-needed riches and supplies. As the Vikings begin to settle in their new home, they encounter resistance from the Saxons, including King Aelfred of Wessex, who denounces them as heathens and looks to be the sole ruler of a civilized England. Against all odds, Eivor must do what is necessary to keep Valhalla within reach."
Assassin's Creed Valhalla is available now on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Xbox Series X, PS5, Stadia, and Luna.
