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

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 Shores of Nine.

Like plenty of Nornir Chests that came before, the secret to opening this chest is to light all three rune braziers. The runes here bear a resemblance to the letters 'R', 'C' and 'N'.

  • Rune ‘R’ — Directly above the chest. Climb up the walls and move around to a ledge to drop down and get a better vantage point.
