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

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 The Lost Treasury.

How to Open the Nornir Rune Chest in The Lost Treasury

For this Nornir Chest, you'll need to light three braziers. The runes bear a resemblance to the letters 'R', 'C' and 'N'.

  • Rune C — Move the giant shield to the left to reveal the brazier.

  • Rune R — On top of the structure. Climb up the shield and head to the leftside. Look to the roof. You’ll need to use Freya’s Sigil Arrows to light it from the short distance.

  • Rune N — Once you’ve solved the main puzzle and opened the gate to get inside, look to the right. The brazier is in the corner.
