Can't Get Back Into Mothers Cradle?


I want to get back inside to get the power core, but the gates are locked. I have heard people say that you need to walk back down the road and come back and it will open then. Nothing I do seems to work. Is there a guaranteed way to get back into mothers cradle late into the game in order to get the power core that is inside for the shield weaver armor?

Dan -

I found a simple solution though. Here is how to get back into mothers cradle when the gates are locked.

Start by overriding a strider, there are a bunch of them nearby. Head back to the gates and turn to the right. Use the mount to make your way up the side of the hill past the invisible wall. Keep going until the mount wont let you go any further. Jump off and make your way to the top of the mountain by jumping over all of the rocks and hills. Be careful not to fall into the town, there is another invisible wall inside that will cause you to get stuck and need to fast travel out.

Once you get to the top of the mountain be super careful, or you will die like I did in the video. It worked for me the first time, so I know it works. Gently drop down to the ground through the gap in the beam. Have full health to be safe. Try make sure you roll out away from the wall instead of into it. Once you land, you can run into the mountain and go to obtain the power core.
