The Applecore and Jarnsmida Pitmines are located in Svartalfheim’s western region. These places were first visited during the story mission The Quest for Tyr, but you couldn’t fully explore them at the time. It is difficult to return to The Applecore and Pitmines since Mystic Gateways were not enabled on the previous visit. They can only be unlocked on a second visit.

Step 1: Head to the Mystic Gateway in the Aurvangar Wetlands.

Step 2: Go to the boat dock and take the ferry that goes North-West to the Sverd Sands.

Step 3: Go to the northwest part of the Sverd Sands and take the elevator.

This elevator takes you down into The Applecore.

    I went back and the mystic gateway is missing for me.
    I have like 20 hours in the game so not right after the mission, but no gateway.

    Is this normal?

    It’s not there for me either, but I’m also not in post-game. Figured I’d clean up a bit and finish sidequests before large story events, but guess the game thinks otherwise.

    Missing for me too.

    The Gateway is there for me but won’t allow me to take the Ferry back

    This was only available to me after I’d completed the main story. I’ve new areas and new gates appear since completing main.
