Assassin’s Creed Valhalla isn’t just confined to England and Norway, nor this realm technically. You get to visit Asgard after you’ve built the Seer’s Hut at your settlement. It’s a pretty hefty section, where you’ll need to retrieve water from the Well of Urd, which is locked behind a light beam puzzle. To make sure you make it to the waters intact, we’ve detailed the Well of Urd puzzle solution in this guide. We’ll show you exactly how to solve it, and what you get for doing so.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: How to solve the Well of Urd light beam puzzle
While it might seem simple at first glance, the Well of Urd puzzle can be quite tricky to figure out. There are two switches that you’ll need to hit with light beams, but only one beam to work with. The first thing you need to do is head to the light beam turret farthest from where you entered and point it at the prism above the entrance door. We’ve included an image of this prism below. This will split the beam into two beams.
One beam will trigger the beam to the left of the door. You can point this one down at the moveable glass orb on the lower platform. You’ll need to move this around to get the angle just right to hit the switch closest to the entrance. Once you’ve done this you’ll need to direct the other beam through the remaining turrets.
You can see the correct configuration in the image above. We have our back to the entrance in it. Head around to the final turret in the chain and aim it down at the second switch. This will destroy the barrier ahead. Make sure you’ve collected all you can in this area first, as you cannot climb back up the well. You can now jump into the Well of Urd.
Well of Urd rewards
For completing the Well of Urd puzzle you’ll get to move into the final area and collect the waters. Make sure you use Odin’s Sight as you swim out, there’s a chest containing a Ymir’s Tear Stone. You’ll need 30 of these to complete the nearby altar.
