A brand new patch has rolled out for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and update 1.031 comes with some massive details.

Below are the official patchnotes:

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Update 1.3.1 Patch Notes

River Raids Update

  • Added 3 new Rivers to the RIVER RAIDS game mode. (Erriff, Berbha, Rhine)
    • Face 2 River Champions and the new Champions of the Faith. Defeat them to get your hands on new weapons.
  • Added new rewards to River Raids (Lugh’s Armor and 5 weapons – including a short sword)
  • Jomsviking Hall can be upgraded to Level 4-5, allowing players to hire Jomsviking of Level 4-5, respectively.
    • Jomsviking of higher rank can carry more rations and do more damage to enemies.
  • River Raid Longship cargo can be upgraded to Level 4-5.

    • Precision Axe Throw = Eivor performs a devastating axe throw that targets an enemy’s weak point.

Rune Perk Changes

  • Targeted Rune socketing – This update means that RUNES will only affect the weapon they are socketed in, allowing players to create more targeted loadouts.
    • For example, you could fill your left-hand weapon with Attack runes and your right-hand weapon with Stun runes so that both weapons have very different effects.
    • Some stats will stay global (example: Assassination damages, Fire damages, etc.).
    • No changes have been made to Runes slotted on armor; they will still impact your character as a whole.
  • Perk & Rune Perk Cap removal – We also removed the CAP that prevented Perks & Rune Perks (diamond shape) effects from stacking beyond a certain threshold.

Pokimane Says Shane Dawson’s Apology “Disingenuous”

Published

Pokimane

Twitch superstar and OfflineTV streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys isn’t buying the apology issued by Shane Dawson, who claims he was “cancelled” after he received backlash over controversial comments from his past resurfaced online back in 2020.

Dawson took a hiatus that lasted all the way until his return on October 7th.

Still, Pokimane issued her criticism of Dawson’s apology, calling it “disingenuous“.

“Like, if you really care about something, like, ‘hey I want to come back” she said during a recent live stream (h/t Dexerto). I want to seriously apologize and I want people to know how aware I am of the sh**ty things that I did’… When someone’s serious they look like they feel bad, they say at lengths what they did wrong. That’s how you really do it.”

“Whereas if someone is like, “Sorry you feel that way. If you hate me you’re gonna hate me, and omg my cat’s so cute!” If someone apologized like that, you would be like, ‘What?!’… It just wouldn’t feel right,” she said.

“The way he summarized it, I felt kind of sucked, where he was like “All these clips came out, and that was bad. And if I talk about how I really feel about it, then people will say I just want sympathy.” … But then it’s like, maybe you haven’t thought about what you did long enough.”

“All the things he listed, none of them were like, “I felt bad about what I’ve done. And like I wanted to give people time and space.” People need time to get over, and you need to showcase you’ve changed,” she continued.

“If you’re going to go off the internet for like two years, specifically because of you being canceled. When you come back and it’s your first video back, I think you need to acknowledge what you did. And in acknowledging what you’ve done wrong, you need to say that you’re sorry, to showcase that you’re genuinely sorry.”

“You need to go about things the way you genuinely feel. If you feel you are sorry, say you’re sorry. But you also have to accept that if you choose not to apologize and some people think that makes you disingenuous then so be it. But the vibes that I get is that he’s unsure.”
