Unlike the legendary chests in the realms of Svartalfheim, Alfheim, and Vanaheim, we will deliver the location of the 7 legendary chests of Midgard from God of War Ragnarok directly to you in one fell swoop. This involves a few spoilers, so if you don't want to spoil anything, we recommend skipping the very last location of this walkthrough.
Lake of Nine
During the A Word of Fate chapter, you will spot this legendary chest while climbing the mountain of the third destination indicated by the wolves. while climbing don't go all the way up right away, but instead continue left to descend onto a ledge . Still to the left you can hang yourself with your chains on the ledge, then jump opposite by breaking the wall to reach the chest.
- Accessory: Round of recovery
This chest is given to you as a reward for exploring the Abandoned Outpost, the very first step of the side quest Curse of Sigrun. You'll see that Legendary Chests and Norn Chests are often associated with secondary content in the Midgard area, which is going to make them pretty easy to pick up overall.
- Powerful Runic Attack: Ivaldi's Anvil
This Legendary Chest will be given to you for free during The Curse of Sigrun quest. When you have beaten the centaur and his minions, you can pull a chain bringing the two rowers closer and giving access to a new part of the area, where the famous chest is stored. Nothing complicated once again, it gives you a fresh new location to wedge an additional enchantment in your amulet.
- Equipment: Jewel of Yggdrasil
Effortlessly given during the Animal Instinct side quest: Go to the Fortress, the marauder camp placed inside the temple of Tyr at ground level. Eliminate all the thugs on the spot to get your hands on this new runic attack. This is a signature attack of Kratos since the first games, that should please the nostalgic.
- Swift Runic Attack: Chaos Cyclone
The last stage of the Curse of Sigrun quest, decidedly very generous in legendary chests . This time you will have to succeed in opening a gate while removing the shield of the statue of tyr which obstructs the passage. Shoot it first so you can climb from the left. Once at the top, cross the small corridor and pull the lying pillar as far as possible so that it protrudes into the void. Go back down, this time pull the shield on the right and open the gates using the wheel: freeze one of the mechanisms, then send a purple arrow at the ice to consolidate it, then freeze the second to finally be able to enter and retrieve the chest .
- Accessory: Signet Punishment
This is the last step of the Animal Instinct quest: harvest the souls of the local marauders, but also the boss who will come back next, to finally access the legendary chest in this small area northeast of Midgard. Just follow the frozen river to eventually see the light at the end of the path indicating the entrance to the camp.
- Enchantment: Mark of Elemental Dodge
Lake of Nine
This legendary chest can be found southwest of Midgard , on the edge of the frozen river near the Temple of Tyr. To free it you will need the Draupnir Spear, but that's not all: an amalgam of frost will try to defend the precious container. It has 4 pillars as a life bar and the one you will probably miss is behind the rock a little away from the chest. Be careful on your right when you arrive on the scene, do not forget the crow perched a little higher.
- Enchantment: Stamina of Jotunheim
