Scattered around the many realms in God of War Ragnarök are Nornir Chests. Here's how to open up the rune chest in Alberich Islands.

Nornir Chests are found all over the realms, containing valuable materials such as Idunn Apples or Horns of Blood Mead. These items will either increase Kratos' health or his Maximum Rage — both important gauges to max out for the many fights ahead.

But because these items are so valuable, cracking open the Nornir Chests requires more work. To unlock them, you'll need to find and break three runes, or Seals, located around the area near the chest. Here's how to find the runes and open the Nornir Rune Chest in Alberich Islands.

For this Nornir Chest, you'll need to hit three runes hanging from wooden structures. The three runes bear a resemblance to the letters 'C', 'R' and 'N'.

  • Rune ‘C’ — Found to the right of the chest.
Rune 'R' is hanging from this crane.

  • Rune ‘R’ — This one is on a crane. Have Atreus fire an arrow at the Sound Stone section of the crane to break it and cause the rune to lower.

  • Rune ‘N’ — Behind a metal grate. Hit and spin the panel to raise it up. Make it spin twice to gain some extra height and time.

Once all three have been hit, return to the chest for a Horn of Blood Mead.
