Here is the God Of War Ragnarök Return of the River Favour guide where we will help you return the water to The Crater allowing you to access the previously inaccessible areas in The Crater.
You will need to get to The Crater which is done by firstly completing the Creatures of Prophecy main story quest where you rescue Freyr then also complete the Scent of Survival Favour where you track down Helka ultimately taking you to The Crater.
Completing the Return of the River Favour will allow you to access every area in The Crater where you can obtain a lot of collectibles as well as earn several trophies along the way so it’s a really important area not only in Vanaheim but in the entire game to progress through.
Take care though as some of the toughest enemies in the game can be found in The Crater so ensure you are appropriately levelled and geared before you go exploring.
Once in The Crater mantle up and over the cliff, go left and cross the chasm. Take out the enemies whilst avoiding the Dragons attacks as best as you can.
Go across the plain, drop down and swing across the 2 gaps and mantle up to the right where you will come to the Celestial Altar you can use to change the time of day from Day to Night.
Kick the shield out of the way then head round to the right taking out either the Wisp or the Seidr whichever one has spawned and cross the rock bridge leading you round to the Temple with 2 Dragon heads outside.
Clear the shielded Seidr using the opposing element then proceed through the passage avoiding the poison pods, climb the wall making your across the canyon below to the next platform.
Look to the left wall and throw the Axe through the wooden barrier allowing you to head through to The Jungle.
Head forward and drop down to the right before the Ogres can throw their rocks at you, freeze the poison plant and clear the Wulver ambush where you can then climb the back wall.
Follow the path around clearing the Gulon, mantle up the ledge and look to the right clearing the red vines before going in to the lift you can ride up.
Clear the Seidr and Gulon out of the way then smash the boxes to the right revealing a weak point you need to throw a Spear in to revealing a gap you can squeeze through.
Wait for the Dreki to eat the Gulon then take down the Nokken in the far alcove before attacking the Seidr.
There will be 3 flood gates you need to open which is done by firstly clearing the Red vines on the back wall behind the wheel.
Go back to the wheel and raise the floodgates as high as they will go then place a Sigil on the gear over to the right and freeze it with the Axe.
Place 3 Runic Sigils on the lower left side of the remaining red vines, place another 2 Sigls on the raised Floodgate with an additional 2 Sigils on the wall to the left of the floodgate.
Blast the Sigils away clearing the vines then recall the Axe allowing the gear to defrost where you can then move the wheel opening the floodgates.
Go back through the gap in the wall and go to the edge of the platform looking down where the Favour will then complete.
