Where to find the three runes for the Nornir chest on Dragon Beach in God of War Ragnarok

God of War offers players a wide variety of puzzles to complete during their game. One of the most notable types of puzzles is the Nornir Chests that players will encounter in all realms. Nornir Chest will start spawning early in the game and will persist until the very end. Nornir chests can be difficult to complete, but the one that can particularly cause problems for players is the Dragon Beach one. This one is located in Svartalfheim, not far from another Nornir chest.

Rune #1

To find this rune, players will need to use Kratos’ Leviathan Ax to freeze the water jet directly behind the chest. This will reveal the location of the Rune. To actually smash the Rune, players must aim for its location, pick up the Ax (this will cause the water to start flowing again), and then throw the Ax into the water.


Rune #2

This Rune will be obtained the same way as Rune #1, but it is in a different location. The waterspout concealing this Rune is located on the south side of Dragon Island.

Rune #3

Rune #3 is a bit tricky. Players are supposed to use a special item to get a vantage point above the Rune, throwing the Leviathan Ax to break it. This can be avoided, however, allowing players to open this chest much sooner than intended. Players simply need to locate the dragon sculpture on the island and wander around the back. The top of the rune can barely be spotted and should be targeted using the Leviathan Axe.

Since this Nornir Chest is not a time trial, players can do this at their own pace, targeting runes in any order they see fit. It’s easier to pull the runes closest to the chest and work from there, but there’s no downside to doing it any other way.
