Where to Find Mistress of the Iron Wood AC Valhalla – Angrboda & Waterfall Location

To find the Mistress of the Iron Wood AC Valhalla quest, you have to figure out the location of the giantess Angrboda. She’s in a location called Heart of the Wood. You can see where her exact location is in the screenshots below. The trick is that her house doesn’t appear unless you look at it from a specific place. Otherwise, it just looks like a giant root. Specifically, you have to walk around to the west side of the root. There’s a platform there, and walking towards it should reveal the house. If it doesn’t try walking past one of the nearby trees, then back. Once you reveal the house, walk up the root on the right, and when you come to the “crossroots,” head right. At the end of the root, jump onto the platform below and to the left, and walk into the house.

The first step of the AC Valhalla Mistress of the Iron Wood quest is to find a hidden waterfall. It’s to the southwest of the Heart of the Woods, and the location is called Leyna Falls. However, when you arrive at the correct place, you’ll notice that there’s no waterfall. What you have to do to reveal it is to walk to the wall between the two braziers. Look around you; you’ll find it easily. Just make sure to walk through the gateway. Then, turn around, and the waterfall should be there. So, walk to the edge and leap into the hole.
