    I try the default 'hold c' but I cannot for the life of me drop down. I found nothing online of people having trouble. Does anyone have tips or tricks to position yourself to drop down instead of jumping over?

    (for a memory refresher- this is the location where you find the key in the pig's mud pile, and then have to shoot down a rope holding a stack of logs so you can drop down into the cellar)

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    Although it's quite a while ago now I do seem to recall finding this one trickier than others. I can't recall what I might have done. Just do what you can to approach from different directions, hold the free-run-jump-over-things button while running at it, that kind of thing. Good luck.

    Hello there @Acreades! Welcome to the forums 🙂

    I'm sorry to hear that you've had trouble dropping down into the cellar in Alrekstad. Thanks for sharing your report with us. @SpirantCrayon22 shares some great suggestions you could try, such as approaching from different angles or changing your approach speed by sprinting.

    If you're still unable to drop down into the basement, would you be able to send us a video of this so we can take a closer look? I'd recommend uploading the video footage to a sharing platform, such as YouTube or Google Drive, as this will allow you to post a shareable link within this thread.

    Thanks! 😊

    @Ubi-Borealis I am having the same problem. I've tried everything. I've approached the hole in every way possible, including climbing the crane and trying to drop in. This just lands me on the edge of the cellar but won't allow me to drop in. Very frustrating and appears to be a bug. I guess I won't be getting the treasure here.

    I mis-remembered which one this was so had a look in Alrekstad and this one is worth collecting, it's an ability.

    I can get Eivor to get down okay, walk or run towards the edge (any of the four) and just before you get to the edge, press and hold the button for crouching, she should spin round and drop into the hole or (more likely) hang from the edge.

    Hey there @Bucky_Goldstein , thanks for reaching out! Many thanks to @SpirantCrayon22 for once again contributing advice on this. As far as i can see, we'd not had any other reports of any similar issues, so I'm confident we'll be able to get to the bottom of this one with local troubleshooting.

    @Bucky_Goldstein , could you try rebinding this action to another key (even though it works fine in other situations)? Or, even better, if you've got a gamepad available, please try temporarily using the gamepad to see if you can perform the required action.

    A video showing that Eivor won't do as they are told will really help us out with looking into this internally. On PC, we often recommend recording gameplay footage using the Xbox Game Bar, since you should already have it installed, and then the video can be uploaded to any video- or file-sharing website (such as YouTube) so you can send us a link to it here in the thread.

    Let us know how you get on, @Bucky_Goldstein 🙂

    @Ubi-Thrupney OK, so . . . I was in the process of recording the video of me not being able to get down into the cellar . . . and BAM, I was able to get down into the cellar!

    I think that what I did was, I may have dodged sideways at the same time that I hit the drop key so I sort of slid into the cellar.

    I had been trying the same sorts of combos that hadn't worked previously and I think I just sort of lucked into that one.

    I was able to record the video and you can see that I was actually sort of in shock that I had actually made it in there (as I was hanging for a few seconds before dropping in).

    Thanks for getting back to us @Bucky_Goldstein !

    I'm glad to see you've been able to since drop down, albeit through some interesting means!

    We'll note this to the team and thanks for sharing the video should anyone else be stuck!

    If there's anything else we can assist with, please do let us know.
