Assassin's Creed: Valhalla

Taking Root

Scott Peers

This quest begins immediately after Forging a Bond. Now that Ivaldi has agreed to forge a magical cord to bind the wolf that troubles Havi, you’ll need to find some of the “impossible ingredients” to help him.

Read the “Potential at Its Peak” Note

To begin, you’ll need to read the note given to you by Ivaldi named Potential at Its Peak, which can be found among the quest items in your inventory. The note reads as follows, and provides a few clues with regard to what you need to do next:

“Cradled in rock,
At Asgard’s highest height,
A seed sleeps in Ymir’s cold grip.
Warm it awake, bring it to water,
For old bone to sprout with new life.”

Find the Highest Height in Asgard

A bit more vague than the first note about the golden cat, but clear enough to give us something to go on: we’ll need to find the highest peak in Asgard and climb to the top of it. You’ll find this in the southernmost part of the map, as shown below. Travel to the base of the mountain and climb to its peak, where you can use the synchronization point. After that, jump into the haystack below, where you’ll find the seed directly in front of you. Before you can pick it up, you’ll need to free it by burning the haystack with a torch. After that, pick up the seed and throw it into the water directly below. You’ll need to dive into the pond and then take the roots as it sprouts, thereby completing the quest.

(1 of 5) The location of the highest height in Asgard, in the south of the map.
