Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Wrath of the Druids (Ireland DLC) has 10 Children of Danu Locations. Eliminating all Children of Danu unlocks the Dawn of the Druids trophy or achievement. They are also part of the questline also called “Children of Danu”. Each of them drops an Amber Shard that you must bring back to Deirdre in Asfinn, Connacht region. The Amber Shards are automatically added to your inventory when defeating the Children of Danu.
The Children of Danu are the new Order Members in the Wrath of the Druids DLC Expansion that takes place in Ireland. They are only available after purchasing the Wrath of the Druids DLC. They get added to the Order Menu during main quest “Potion of Blood” in Ireland, which is also where you first meet Deirdre.
Your story choices do not matter for the Danu Members. None of them are missable. You can keep track of your progress by looking at the Order Menu. It’s recommended to finish the Wrath of the Druids story first because the first 5 order members are tied to story missions. Then hunt down the last 5 after the story.
Because some of them move around it’s good to find their Clues first (but not mandatory). After finding all Clues for a Member you can track their exact location from the Order Menu.
Once all 10 Children of Danu have been defeated you will instantly get the Dawn of the Druids trophy. But to get your reward you must return to Deirdre in the named map area “Asfinn” in Connacht region, east of Rathcroghan. You will get a mythical spear called Gae Bolg.
This guide lists the Children of Danu in chronological story order! #1-#5 are automatic story-related eliminations that must be done in a fixed order, #6-#10 aren’t part of the main story and can be done in different order. Doing them in the shown order here is the most effective and will get you clues for the next target automatically. Click the links in the overview below to jump to the specific target.
