How To Get The Forge Nornir Chest In God Of War Ragnarok

Learn everything there is about unlocking the Nornir Chest located in the Forge of God Of War Ragnarok

The Forge Nornir Chest in God Of War Ragnarok is just one of many Nornir Chests that you can hunt down in the game, which contains Jotunn Apples and Horn Of Blood Meads, used in order to upgrade Kratos’ health and Rage bar. These chests are scattered across the Nine Realms, and unlocking them in one go isn’t easy, as some chests may require you to make use of other equipment. It is also worth pointing out that you do not need to collect every single Nornir chest in the game to unlock the Full Belly Trophy.

Key Highlights

  • The Nornir chests in God Of War Ragnarok are essential to collect in order to fully upgrade both Kratos’ HP and Rage meter to the maximum parameters.
  • One of the Nornir chests is located in The Forge area, which is located in the realm of Svartalfheim.
  • Players will first need to solve a puzzle in order to access and unlock the Nornir chest in the area.
  • The puzzle revolves around destroying Three different Runic stones near the Nornir chest’s location.
  • It is worth stating that players won’t be able to access the puzzle since it requires using the Draupnir Spear, a weapon unlocked later on in God Of War Ragnarok.

As shown in the image above, you can find the Forge area Nornir Chest on the Western side of the Realm of Svartalfheim. You will come across the Forge area very early on during the beginning hours of the game because it is here where Kratos and Atreus venture in order to free Týr, the Norse Pantheon God Of War.

The Nornir chest will come across your way whilst venturing through the uphill area; however, you will not be able to access it yet.

Steps To Solve The Nornir Chest Puzzle

The steps to unlocking the Forge Nornir Chest are pretty simple, as all you need to do is destroy three different runic statue-like rocks around the area here. Here is how it goes:

  1. Obtain Draupnir Spear: Unlock the Draupnir Spear during Chapter 10 of the mid-game quests. This spear enables ranged attacks and detonation abilities.
  2. Locate Runes: Identify three runic statue-like rocks surrounding the area of the Nornir Chest.
  3. Destroy First Rune: The first rune is behind the Nornir Chest near the worn-out wooden bridge poles. Use the Draupnir Spear to throw and detonate it.

  4. Destroy Second Rune: Rotate 180 degrees from the Nornir Chest to find the second runic statue. Use the spear to destroy it.

  5. Destroy Third Rune: Head back to the platform where you first rode the cart to reach the area. Locate the third runic statue near the rail cart section and destroy it with the spear.

  6. Open the Chest: Return to the Nornir Chest after destroying all three runes. Open it to claim the rewards, which may permanently increase either Kratos’ HP or his Rage ability meter.

The Wrap-Up

According to a Subreddit Post, you can head back to the Forge area once you have completed the game. It is pretty simple, as you just need to grab the manual Ferry near the Aurvangr Wetlands where you first entered the Realm. From there, you simply need to use the cart ride to get back uphill again in order to collect this Nornir chest using the Draupnir spear.

In contrast to the first game, Ragnarok is filled to the brim with content to complete; as you will no doubt find yourself collecting every single collectible, there is, such as the Lake of Nine Artifacts, as well as conquering all of the Muspelheim Trials. At the end of getting 100 percent completion, you may even struggle against endgame bosses such as King Hrolf or even find it tedious to collect every single of Odin’s Ravens in God Of War Ragnarok.
