Valkyrie calls for a different gameplay style; or alternatively, it legitimates the style of not using magic. She hates all kinds of magic, and “slays” creatures strong in magic. On the other hand, she denies all magic to her followers as well. In exchange, she gives strong protection against magic.
Wait a minute; if there's no magic, then what's the point of the slaying thing?
And more importantly, how do you level up?
The slaying thing will only affect enchanted weapons, and she gives them rather frequently (as weapons are sacred to her).
As for leveling up, that's the fun part.
Valkyrie will accept sacrifices on her altar; you should pick up flesh, bring it to the altar, and then pray.
(Very important that you use the pray command to complete the experience gain process!)
You'll gain praying exp as a fraction of the monster's exp (which is stored as an attribute in the flesh object).
Heads and hearts are worth slightly more.
Valkyrie also fosters patience in her followers, expect to spend longer than usual on the altar to receive blessings.
This stands to be the most challenging cult to play.
Restrictions to spell access (not just prayers, but all spells) may prove to be interesting.
In attempt to compensate for that, this cult gains the weapon enchantment ability (easily and at early levels) to slay a large selection of monsters which are very common in many maps.
Followers are denied to *all* spell schools, so they'll never be able to cast *any* spells; they gain praying experience by dropping monster body parts on an altar of Valkyrie and then using the praying skill.
This will likely to be very time consuming without help from another player - it can be a long walk to back major settlements where an altar to Valkyrie is located from most maps.
A Valkyrie follower can use a consecrate scroll to create an Altar to Valkyrie.
