GoW Ragnarok: How To Bring River Water Back To The Jungle In The Plains

The release of God of War Ragnarok has flooded players with missions and side quests that are important to the overall story. One of them can be found in The Plains, where Kratos and Atreus have to get a dam working again in order to release the water flow for the jungle.

This is part of the ‘Favors’ titled ‘Return of the River.’ The journey will not be straightforward as there are a few things that need to be sorted out before the actual mission begins.

Kratos and Atreus will have to travel for a while, take down wild beasts, and make their way through the dangerous parts of the jungle before they can even reach the dam.

The developers have kept things very interesting in the sequel to the 2018 God of War and this particular puzzle can trip you up if you are unsure of what to do. In that regard, the following guide will help players in ascending to the dam via the lower reaches of the jungle, before getting it unstuck.

God of War Ragnarok: How to get river water in The Plains by fixing the dam

As the two of you make your way, there will come a point in the jungle where you encounter two large animals, whom Kratos defeats. Once that is done, the actual quest will start, with the first objective being getting up the level of the dam.

Whilst running after the beasts vanish, you will ascend a platform and head right. There are brambles blocking your way to what appears to be a chamber beyond. Kratos will attempt to break them down using the Blades of Chaos, but ultimately you will require Sigils, which are an expert in clearing these items.

After the brambles disappear, the father-son duo will find a lift that will take you up to a new platform. You will have to make quick of a guard, before finding a narrow entry path to the right, which will have to be cleared once again.

This is the place where you will find a few creatures and the all-important wheel of the dam which is stuck. The reason why are brambles and a supposed marker, all of which are present beside the doorways of the dam which are currently lowered, thereby preventing the water from flowing.

Once you reach the brambles in front of the wheel, it is time for the Sigils arrows again. Place a few of them on the brambles all placed on the wall and marker of the dam. You may need a few attempts to find the correct places, but make sure they are close to the bramble, on the adjoining walls.

Kratos will use his Blades of Chaos to cause the chain reaction which will have Mimir comment that the wheel can now be turned again. Indeed, you will be able to get the wheel going, with the doorways being lifted, the water comes gushing out to the other side.

Atreus is overjoyed at the fact that animals will return to the jungle now, while Kratos is his usual somber self, stating this was not his ultimate goal. Nevertheless, it is a win for them as Mimir reminds him, and the Favor is now complete.

Thus, that is all the information players will need when it comes to restarting the water supply in the jungle. It is a pretty straightforward mission on your quest, with the main parts being where to place the Sigils at the required points. Once you figure that out, you are all set to bring life back.
