This guide will show you where to find all of the Collectibles in the “The Forge” area in God of War Ragnarok, released on November 8th, 2022. There are 9 Collectibles in “The Forge” which is part of the area of Svartalfheim.
1) Odin’s Raven
Head to the Mystic Gateway in the Aurvangar Wetlands.
Take up the little train and it leads to the Forge area.
After the train ride, walk along the wooden ramp to find the raven flying up in the sky.
2) Artifact (Things Left Behind – Bari’s Grenade)
Take the first exit on the right as you walk on the wooden ramp.
Climb the ledge and descend to find the artefact hidden behind a wooden crate.
3) Nornir Chest
It is close to the artefact. Climb back up from the artefact and straight over to a small area with a green heart drawn on a stone (on the right side). The location of the Nornir chest is shown in the pictures below. To unlock the chest, you will need to destroy 3 totems simultaneously. You can do this by using Spear, which you will get during the main story mission.
Totem #1 is on the mountain wall in front of the chest. Totem #2 is far away on the left side of the chest. For Totem #3, take the path going right from the chest. Here you will find the totem near the wooden bridge. The location of the totems is shown in the pictures below. Hit the totems with a spear by pressing L2+R1. But make sure to not detonate them. After you have hit all three totems with spears, press the “Triangle” button to destroy them at once. This will unlock the chest. Open it to get Horn of Blood Mead.
