Venonis Armor or the Hrafn Guard is the name of the piece of armor that can be found at the ruins of Venonis, a region located at the southern-most point of Ledecestrescire. To get to the Hrafn Guard, you will first need to get to the location and explore the ruins.

The Hrafn Guard is a ‘light’ category shield that your character can wield in their off-hand. Normally, shields allow you to block attacks by your enemy and also counterattack them as needed.

Venonis Armor is unique in that it increases speed while you’re blocking by up to 5 times. Like all shields, once you’ve acquired this, you can enhance it at any Blacksmith to improve its quality, add Rune slots, and more.

How to find Venonis Armor [Hrafn Guard] in AC Valhalla?

Hrafn Guard Raven Gear Venonis Assassin's Creed Valhalla

First, you’ll need to travel to the region of Ledecestrescire. You’ll need to locate the ruins of Venonis upon reaching northwest of the Alcestre Monastery.

The building with two black banners on either side of the gate is where you have to enter.

As you’ll soon find that the main door to it is locked, you should then, run around the right corner of the building and start auto-climbing upwards.

Having reached the roof of the building, face the back of the building and jump onto the tree with a bit of a wooden platform surrounding it.

From here, carefully aim at the lock of the door visible from the broken gap at the back of the building, and shoot to break it. This shall open the main front door for you to enter through.

Sneak in through the front door, while crouching to avoid detection, till you reach the scaffolding with two guards in front of you. You can then either engage them directly in combat or assassinate them each, while the other’s not looking.

On the left bit of the scaffolding, you’ll find a wooden box-like construction with some nets hanging on it. Come over to the right side of it to see one side of the wooden wall, with cracks in between the slats. This can be broken to go inside the wooden construction site.

Once inside this small room, you’ll find an unlocked chest sitting right in front of you. Loot it, and you’ll receive the Hrafn Guard.

So, having found this bit of Venonis Armor, we advise you to equip and inspect it to view the stats for yourself. You’ll find it to be quite useful against certain types of the 25 kinds of total enemies you’ll face in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Of course, how you should use it, and where it is effective for you, is something that only you can figure out with further combat, having equipped your Hrafn Guard shield. You should even add runes to it, reinforce it, or upgrade it by spending your crafting materials at a blacksmith, so you unleash the full potential it has to offer.
