The Assassin's Creed Valhalla A Feline's Footfall quest requires you to collect the "footfall of a cat", which is a pretty odd request all things considered. Ivaldi wants you to get one after you take down Loki's wolf in Asgard, but knowing exactly where to go and what to do for this strange Assassin's Creed Valhalla quest is perplexing at best. So here's everything you need to know about the Assassin's Creed Valhalla A Feline's Footfall quest.

Check out the guide to the Assassin's Creed Valhalla Taking Root quest for details on how to beat the adjacent quest to this.

When you first get this quest from Ivaldi, you'll receive a Cat's Foot Note that goes into the quest items in your inventory.

Over the gate to the Great Norse Hall,
A golden cat sits patiently,
Gazing upon many tall towers,
She'll flee when she is found
But follow without fear.
Look, leap, and descend,
Once she leads you to the end,
She may ghost to the ground,
Land as well, and swiftly steal her sound.

This is a fairly cryptic riddle but thankfully, all it means is that you need to find the golden cat, then follow it until it vanishes. So where is it?

Fast travel to the central synchronization point, where you first started in Asgard. Go forward then take a leap of faith off the edge. Climb out of the water in front of you then ascend the wall. Head to the right – you're looking for a section of the wall with a few pillars to jump across. On the furthest pillar, you should be able to see a golden cat, poised to leap off the edge.

Approach the cat and it'll vanish, reappearing a short distance ahead of you. Follow the cat on its path down, until it reaches the very bottom with a leap of faith. Land in the pile of leaves and Eivor will say "I have it. Who knew you could capture a sound?" Gee Eivor, get with the times. That will complete the Assassin's Creed A Feline's Footfall quest and you can return to Ivaldi.

One of the resident guide writers around these parts, give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1 2020, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager 2020, clicking on heads in Valorant, or mowing down hordes of enemies in Outriders.
