How to Unlock A New Destination

Soon after reaching the summit of the mountain, you'll meet Mimir. He tells you that the highest peak in the realms isn't on Midgar, but rather on Jotunheim. Thus, you embark on a quest to get to that realm – but first, you must reanimate Mimir's head with the aid of the Witch of the Woods.
