God of War Ragnarok features a blend of action and adventure to produce a new and unforgettable Norse story that is both thrilling to watch and entertaining to play. The game is a piece of art from start to finish, with flawless writing, pitch-perfect performances, and jaw-dropping action.

However, many players are scratching their heads when it comes to some of the puzzles, such as opening certain chests throughout the game. When Kratos finds Apples of Idunn and Horns of the Blood Meads, he gains more health and rage from Nornir Chests — also known as Rune Chests — which are among the best prizes in God of War Ragnarok.

This Nornir Chest is outside the Lost Treasury door. You first need to complete the "Sigrun's Curse" Favor, which creates the needed path.

The first thing to do is to shift the enormous shield that is in the way of the door all the way to the right. This will allow you to use it to ascend to the top of the Treasury building.

Before entering, be cautious, as there are many strong enemies waiting to attack you. After dealing with them, enter through the doorway, and as you come out, look above and notice the initial flame to your right.

You must find a route into the treasury to reach the third torch. To do this, first ensure the shield is on the left and climb to its top. Then, uncover the column by detonating the objects obstructing the shield's path to the left, and move it.

Once Atreus is inside, break the silver seal to unlock the treasury gate and let him through. Then, use his Sigil Arrows to form a line leading to the third and final torch, located east of the Legendary Chest. Collect the rewards awaiting you in the Nornir chest; this will allow you to upgrade your character and fight foes that might be stronger than your in-game character in God of War Ragnarok.
