Our God of War A New Destination Walkthrough Guide will guide you through the sixth chapter of God of War’s The Journey in a step-by-step manner to help you sail through it without a problem.
We would like to mention here that this walkthrough would strictly focus on the main story progression. There are many collectibles, hidden chambers, and chests found in each chapter but we have different guides especially focusing on each of these collectibles and side missions. You can visit our site and check out all other guides related to God of War posted there.
God of War A New Destination
At the beginning of A New Destination, you will be tasked with descending the summit. Your objective is to take Mimir’s head to the witch, so keep on going down and opening the chests you find in your way.
Once you arrive at the pile of rocks with the blue light nearby, use the circle button to activate it and then travel to the Mystic Gateway near Brok’s shop in Tyr’s Temple.
After that, go on and get to the Witch’s Cave by following Atreus’ directions. You need to row between the legs of Thor’s statue in order to get to the cave. You will soon discover that you arrived at the wrong dock.
Here, blow the crystal with a shock arrow so that you can ride the elevator and get to the Witch’s Cave, which itself has changed due to the water drop and thus has a lot more opportunities for you.
A New Destination
Once you are inside of the cave, remember that the entire cave is open to you and there is a ton of stuff that you can find in here. There are all sorts of chests and puzzles for you to do, and all of them are available in our other God of War Guides.
There are x3 Runic Seal Stones, Treasure Maps, and a sand-bowl puzzle among many other things that you can do when inside of the Witch’s Cave.
However, if you are not really concerned with having a high completion rate or showing off all of the extra stuff that you can get by exploring, you can simply continue on with the story so as to complete it faster than you would otherwise.
In order to do that, you need to first locate the Witch’s Sanctuary and then talk to her. We will be starting off our quest for the witch at the well.
When you are at the well, get to around half of its house and then slide to the left (you will have to). Here you will find a Lore etched onto the wall with a message warning you to turn back. Once you get to the top of the well, look at the stone and then behind it to find a loose crystal.
This crystal goes in the empty stand that is near the lore marker. You will first need to use Atreus’ arrows to shoot the crystal. The arrow to be used is the Light Arrow.
Now, head down the meadow and get the Artifact found on the ground. Take out all of the Draugr forces in the Meadow.
Once you have done that, you have the option to explore the Sanctuary to find a variety of different items including a Legendary Accessory and a sand-bowl puzzle that will allow you to unlock a Legendary Chest with Runic Summons inside of it.
Once you are at the front door of the witch, speak to her to find out what she actually is. We will not spoil the cutscene for you, as it really is intriguing and interesting. Once the cutscene ends, you will be given a new objective in which you will have to get to the Serpent’s Horn.
You will be starting from Freya’s Cave and will need to go down the walkway so that you can enter the elevator and use it to get to the underground levels.
Use the Mystic Gateway nearby to get to Tyr’s Temple and then listen to Mimir so that you can learn about Baldur’s blessing of invulnerability that protects against all damage whether it be physical or magical.
At the temple, go to the bride after exiting the building. Switch on the circular lift that can be found towards the center of the bridge and then ride the lift all the way to the horn.
Once you are at the horn, press circle to hold Mimir to it that will trigger a cinematic and end the chapter.
That is all we have for our God of War A New Destination Walkthrough.
