Valka: "I've just heard from Gobber. He says that he has something urgent to tell you about my son ... our chief. Can you speak with Gobber and see what this is about?"

1- Speak with Gobber

Gobber icon

Gobber: "Hello there, wee lad/lassie. We need to give Hiccup the ceremonial chieftain's battle axe! I hope you're ready to help out. You know I haven't made an axe in ages. I was scared I'd get rusty!

A Viking battle axe has two essential parts. The beauty of the weapon is that it's simple and easy to use!

Before the Headmaster became the teacher of the School of Dragons, he was a fierce Viking warrior. Go talk to him at the school and ask him for his old axe blade!"

2- Speak to the Headmaster

Headmaster icon

Headmaster: "I hadn't thought about my warrior days in many years, [Your Viking's Name]. Your request has brought up many memories for me.

The handle of my old battle axe broke years ago, but I kept the blade. I left the blade somewhere near the school building."

3- Find the blade

Headmaster: "That axe was a huge help to me when I was fighting dragons. I don't need to do that anymore, thank goodness.

You'll need a sturdy piece of wood to make an excellent battle axe. I know of no one better at woodworking than the Botanist. Talk to her for more help."

4- Talk to Phlegma

Phlegma: "I'd love to pitch in! Hiccup is such a great asset to the school. He can have this handle. I made it out of a sturdy, beautiful elm tree, back when I was a fearsome warrior. Elm wood is often pliant and resistant to decay!"

Item: 1 Axe Handle

Gobber: "Great job getting it all together! Bring it back to me so I can get started on my handiwork."

5- Deliver axe parts to Gobber

Gobber icon

Gobber: "This feels like the good old days, when I used to make battle axes and other creative weapons every day! I have to admit, it's better now that the dragons are our friends. Maybe those days weren't so good after all.

Blacksmithing is tough! I need to be happy and full if you want my best work. How about this? You fill my belly while I fill the furnace. Give me 6 ears of corn. You can get that from your farm or the store!"

6- Deliver 6 ears of corn to Gobber

Gobber icon

Gobber: "Yes! That's just what I wanted! That's a good reward for a good job done, if I can say so myself. Here's the axe."

Item: 1 Battle Axe

Gobber icon

Gobber: "I think its one of my best work, but I want to make sure it fits my friend's needs. Cane you take the axe over to Valka and ask her opinion? After all, her husband had the last one!"

7- Speak with Valka at Berk

Valka icon

Valka: "Oh my! Doesn't that look just ... sharp. Well, I suppose a blunt battle axe wouldn't be much of a battle axe. I don't know if it suits Hiccup, but tradition is tradition.

There's no point in dallying! Please give this to Hiccup."

8- Give Hiccup the Battle Axe

Hiccup icon

Hiccup: "A battle axe? I don't even know if I could lift this thing, let alone swing it in combat. I'm going to need to have a word with Gobber. It's appreciated, but maybe we could start some new traditions instead of sticking to outdated ones."
