AC Valhalla Going Deeper - Waking Up in Asgard

Going Deeper is a quest in Assasin’s Creed Valhalla. It’s the one where you bring Valka the herbs from the cave in Cent, then drink the potion and go to Jotunheim. However, lots of folks are getting stuck here. They drink the potion and end up back in Asgard, with nothing to do there. If you’re having this issue, our AC Valhalla Going Deeper guide will show you what to do when you wake up in Asgard by mistake.

Going Deeper potion bug

So you’ve brought Valka the plants, drank the potion, and now you’re in Asgard. There are no quests there, and you thought you’d end up in Jotunheim instead. The solution is pretty simple – you drank the wrong potion.

Valka will brew a separate potion from St John’s Wort and Fireweed, then place it on the table next to the one that was already there. The bowls are tiny, and the prompt for the Asgard potion pops up as soon as you approach the table. If you move a step or two forward and adjust the camera, you’ll get the prompt for the new potion. Drink it, and you’ll end up in Jotunheim as intended.

So it’s not really a bug, just a poorly designed and explained feature. If you look closely enough, or use Odin’s sight, you’ll notice there are two of them now. Most people cleaned up Asgard completely before moving on, so they presume there’s no reason, and maybe even no way, to go back after that portion of the story is over.

If you’re having other troubles with Asgard, be sure to check out some of the other guides we’ve written. We’ve covered the locations of all 33 Ymir’s Tear Stones, quests like Taking The Root and View Above All, and more.

If you need help with anything else in the game, we've got a metric ton of other guides for you to check out. For example, we've written AC Valhalla Hidden Ones Armor Set Locations - Ratae Bureau Armor & Londinium Bureau Key for quest A Brief History of The Hidden Ones, that will reward you with the Hidden Ones armor. We can also help with whether you want to let Rued Live or Die - Kill or Spare Rued Choice Consequences, or who to give silver to in AC Valhalla War Weary quest , and a well hidden AC Valhalla Comb location for Bil Maiden's Missive Rygjafylke World Event. Puzzle that caused us big problems was Unseal The Well during the quest Well Traveled. And, yes, we do have many more coming, stay tuned.

    Well I figured this out once I’d done it. However once in Asgard I was totally stuck, no option or way of leaving after hours of looking, no wake up eye option , no nothing, couldn’t go to atlas on the map. Had to load up an old save point back in cent losing hours of play.

      Yeah same here but I don’t even have an old save i can use. My whole gaming experience in valhalla has come to an end. With 50 hours of gameplay I’m not going to start again but was way off completing the game. Very sad. Even bought the deluxe edition I can’t use any dlc

      I’ve had exactly the same issue. Did you find a fix for this? It’s really frustrating

    So many design flaws in this game that make no sense huge ac fan and I actually like the game but I’m playing months after release it’s still a glitchy mess at times and why on earth would u put the same potion right next to the other one I totally understand being able to go back that totally makes sense but like maybe put them a little separate from each other i also am having a glitch where the last ymirs tear is not showing up I’ve read guides that say u can’t get the last one till one of the final story missions in Asgard when they open the tuned door I’ve already done that and I am still missing a tear unless it’s in Nifleheim I’m stumped
