God of War: Ragnarok

Across the Realms

Nathan Garvin

This page will detail the Across the Realms favor in God of War Ragnarok.

Read a book near a campfire to learn a recipe that’ll force you to travel between realms to obtain all the ingredients.

How to Start the Across the Realms Favor in God of War Ragnarok

You can start this favor during Kratos’s first trip to Midgard during the main quest The Word of Fate, or any time you have the freedom to explore afterwards (including immediately after The Word of Fate). However, you won’t be able to complete this favor until after the main quest Creatures of Prophecy, immediately after which you’ll need to complete the favor Scent of Survival in order to reach The Crater, and optional region in Vanaheim. Specifically, you’ll have to reach The Sinkholes region to complete this favor.

Aside from all the work it takes to reach [The Sinkholes] in Vanaheim (not to mention the basic exploration you’ll have needed to do in other realms), however, this quest is pretty straight-forward.

In the Lake of Nine in Midgard, head northeast from Tyr’s Temple to find The Eternal Campfire. This otherwise uninteresting region houses a campsite atop a ledge you can scale via the Blades of Chaos. Search the snowy ground for a recipe near the campfire, which will start this favor.

To complete it, you’ll need to recreate the recipe by traveling the realms and finding the rare ingredients the recipe calls for. These ingredients includes the following:

  • Nordic Gourd (Midgard)

  • Elven Cap (Alfheim)

  • Prongfruit (Svartalfheim)

  • Bantam Melon (Vanaheim)

Pick up the Nordic Gourd just northeast of the Eternal Campfire in Midgard.

Where to Find the Nordic Gourd Ingredient in Midgard

The first and easiest incredibly you can find is the Nordic Gourd. From the campsite head northeast and drop off the ledge you climbed to reach the campsite. On a rock face to the northeast you should spot some heart graffiti, which marks the location of this - and every other - ingredient throughout the realms. Sure enough, search the snow bank right in front of the heart to obtain a Nordic Gourd.

(1 of 2) Make your way to the western edge of The Forbidden Sands in Alfheim and search near another Nornir Chest to find the telltale graffiti,

Where to Find the Elven Cap Ingredient in Alfheim

Use a Mystic Gateway and travel to The Hjarta, and from there walk (or ride) to The Forbidden Sands. Make your way to the westernmost corner of this region and seek out a collapsed pillar you can crawl under - a red heart on the rocks nearby should make this pretty obvious, but there’s also a Nornir Chest beyond the pillar. Crawl under the pillar and turn right (west) to find an Elven Cap on the ground ahead of you.

(1 of 2) Travel to The Forge in Svartalfheim and search near the Nornir Chest,

Where to Find the Prongfruit Ingredient in Svartalfheim

Use a Mystic Gateway and travel to the Nidavellir Beach in Svartalfheim. When you arrive, use a previously placed Draupnir Spear (assuming you’ve completed Forging Destiny) to leap a gap to the south, then continue south past a Berserker Gravestone and up a ramp to reach a rail car. Ride it to The Forge.

When you arrive, make your way down some ramps and continue north until you’re off the wooden walkway, then continue northwest and north, sticking close to the right to the right until you find a ledge you can vault. Step up the ledge to find a green heart on the rocks ahead. Continue east and search the ground near a Nornir Chest to find the Prongfruit you seek.

Travel to The Sinkholes Mystic Gateway in Vanaheim and search near a canal to find the Bantam Melon.

Where to Find the Bantam Melon Ingredient in Vanaheim

Assuming you’ve explored The Crater fully, using a Mystic Gateway to travel to The Sinkholes (not to be confused with the Sinkholes Entrance). When you arrive, turn southeast, jump a gap, turn left, then head down some stairs to reach a river. Turn right (northeast) and walk along the edge of the water, but keep your eyes to the northwest to spot some hearts on the far wall. Jump a gap to the northeast, then turn northwest and jump across to the other side of the river, where you’ll find the Bantam Melon on the ground near the heart.

Return to the Eternal Campfire and cook up the meal to gain a +5 boost to all your stats.

How to Finish the Across the Realms Favor

With all four ingredients in hand, return to The Eternal Campfire in Midgard and interact with the campfire to cook up the Meal of Comfort. Not only will this complete the favor, but it’ll boost all of Kratos’s stats by +5. A worthy reward for a bit of cooking!
