"Valhalla: our reward for dying in battle. But what of those who die elsewhere? The Valkyries - a warrior order who have made a deal with the gods. Each one can earn glory for our fallen dead. In time, they can win a place for the deserving. But they alone decide for whom they fight. Masters of the spear and the shield, scouts, trackers, and perhaps your only hope for salvation."


Valkyries are a playable hero class in For Honor.

OverviewEdit

The Valkyries have made a deal with the gods. They will fight and earn glory so that those who can’t will be counted in the halls of Valhalla. They are scouts and trackers who use their spears and shields to deadly effect. They are chosen by the gods—pray that you never encounter one on the battlefield.[1]

ArmorEdit

The Valkyrie wear mostly leather armor with some metal plates. Their helmet has a full face plate and ram horns. The skulls of rams are attached to their gauntlets.

WeaponEdit

Spear and Shield - The Spear is a simple weapon: a sharpened metal point at the end of a long wooden Hilt. The shield is small and gives little protection. But put them in the hands of a Valkyrie and they are a deadly combination. An attack can come from either and an enemy can find themselves on their back if they are too slow.

TriviaEdit

  • In Norse Mythology, Valkyries were female spirits who chose who lived or died in battle. They brought half the souls of the slain to Valhalla and the other half to Fólkvangr.
  • The title "Valkyrie" means 'chooser of the slain'.
  • While the game lists Valkyrie as a hard character, the website lists her as a medium. This is possibly due to the Valkyrie being listed as medium during testing, changed for the final game, and the website has yet to be updated.
  • Although Valkyrie possesses an ability in her moveset called "Dodge Block," it is in reality a Deflect as it functions like one.
    • Black Prior possesses an actual Dodge Block where their block direction matches the direction of their dodge, not shifting back to the block direction they had prior to the dodge.

MovesetEdit

Hero SpecificEdit

  • Renown - Renown is balanced across activities.
  • Revenge Mode - Boosts Damage and Health. All Attacks are Uninterruptible. Parry and Throws knock enemies down. Attacks are Auto-Parried on activation.
  • Superior Block Light Attacks - Light Attacks have Superior Block property during the Startup. If the Superior Block successfully blocks an attack, the attack will become a Crushing Counterstrike (becomes unblockable and deal increased damage). Use it to counterattack.
  • Deflect (Dodge Counter) - Deflect by dodging in the direction of an incoming attack just before impact. Use a Heavy Attack after a successful Deflect to perform a Shoulder Pin which pins the target, deals damage together with inflicting bleed.
  • Full Block Stance on Shield Tackle - Gain Full Block while holding Guardbreak during a Shield Tackle. Holding this stance consumes Stamina.
    • Shield Tackle Cancel - Cancel Shield Tackle with B (XB1), E (PC) or O (PS4) before the tackle. Cannot cancel during the tackle charge.
  • Shield Crush - Press Guardbreak during a Heavy Attack Startup or after the first strike of a Zone Attack to cancel into a Shield Crush. Shield Crush functions similarly to Shield Tackle.
  • Zone Attack - Zone Attack can be cancelled with B (XB1), E (PC) or O (PS4) after the first swing.
  • Spear Sweep Surprise - Press MMB (PC), X (XB1), ■ (PS4) instead of a normal Chain Finisher or after throwing an enemy to surprise them with a Spear Sweep.
    • Spear Sweep Punish - Heavy Attack immediately after a successful Spear Sweep to perform a Spear Sweep Punish. Spear Sweep Punish is guaranteed.
  • Chain Openers - Shield Tackle, Shield Crush, Shoulder Pin, Pouncing Thrust, and Hunter's Strike count as Chain Openers.
