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

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 Cliffside Ruins.

For this Nornir Chest, players will need to find and turn three mechanisms. The runes for this puzzle bear a resemblance to the letters 'F', 'R' and 'P'.

  • Rune F — This mechanisms has been knocked over, but the F rune is facing upwards. You can see it from a higher vantage point. But because it’s been knocked over, the ‘F’ isn’t actually in the correct position. Knock it once to break the seal.

  • Rune R — To the right of the chest are some red vines that need to be destroyed. Burn them with the help of Freya to uncover the mechanism. Turn it until it faces ‘R’.

  • Rune P - Head across to the opposite island, where Brok is. Look out to the water and you’ll see another mechanism. Turn it until the correct rune faces outwards.

Once all mechanisms have been turned, head back to the chest. Open the it to receive an Idunn Apple.
