Resources are your main tool to obtain better weapons and more useful items in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. A notable resource you want to make use of is carbon ingot. It’s one of the basic resources you need to find to enhance any of the weapons or equipment you want to give Eivor. Without it, you won’t be able to make your items more powerful, thereby making it more difficult to fight the tougher enemies. Plus, you’ll be missing out on several bonuses that you receive by enhancing them.
There are several ways to find carbon ingots, although you won’t know it until you loot it. A carbon ingot will be one of the wealth landmarks you find in Valhalla, and these are scattered all over each region. The best way to find them all is to find the nearest synchronizing point to map them out.
Once you see the nearest wealth point of interest, it’s only a matter of getting closer to it and investigating it. A wealth point of interest can be a new piece of gear, resources, or a book of knowledge. You can only find out when you get close enough. In England, a great way to secure carbon ingots to go raiding. You and your crew will typically find one of them, but again, you need to raid a location that has a wealth aspect. If all of the wealth aspects have been acquired in a region, it’s time to move on to the next resource.
When you start in Norway, there are many carbon ingots you can by exploring, before leaving England. There are two of them in Hyvlatonna, one in Kjotve’s Fortress, two in Stavanger, and a few others. Once you venture out to England, they become a bit more common, and you can even start finding the more premium ingots, such as nickel and tungsten.
