After Atreus learns the ability to use Magic Light arrows, you need to use them to light crystals up and traverse the area. Once you get to the top of this area where there is a gate blocking the path, you will fight 2 dark elves. Once you kill them, look towards the Light of Alfheim to spot the chest at the edge of the platform.

gow-lore-collectible Lore Marker 2/2

Right after opening the previously mentioned chest, you need to drop the crystal above you. This will open the gate behind it. Take the crystal and place it in the slot in front of you. This will activate the Lore Marker in front of it. Interact with it to collect it

gow-nornir-treasure-chest-collectible Nornir Chest 3/4

After the previous Lore Marker, take the crystal and walk up the long winding stairs. Once you get to the top, place the crystal on the slot in front of you. This will activate a light bridge above you. Get up there to find a Nornir Chest inside a small enclosed structure. Again, you needs to hit the 3 rune seal bells within the area in quick succession to open the chest. Head to the right side of the chest outside the structure where the chest is in. You can spot a hole. Through this hole you can see the first bell beside the chest, and if you look to the left you can spot the second bell at the far end of another hole. The third bell is right behind you, from where you came (by climbing the ledges). Now you know their locations, and can aim at all of them without moving. Hit them quickly to open the chest.

gow-artefact-collectible Artefact 2/6

After taking the crystal elevator down back into the Ringed Temple, you will notice that it’s dark everywhere. There is an artefact in one of these rooms beside a corpse. Don’t forget to pick it up.

gow-artefact-collectible Artefact 3/6

After the previous artefact, exit the room, and you will notice the top floor closing off. Now head left. The way forward is closed, but you can use the light arrows to create light bridges to get through. Get inside the room on the left to find a crystal hanging on top. Shoot it down, and the doors will open. Kill the enemies and inside the middle doorway, you can find the artefact beside a corpse.

gow-artefact-collectible Artefact 4/6

While heading back to the sand bowl, you will come across the wheel that lowers the platform at the beginning of the temple. This is the same wheel used to grab the contents of the nearby Nornir Chest. Use the wheel once more. Lower the platform to the very bottom, freeze the gear and head inside the lower path. At the end of the path, behind the wheel is a room with an artefact beside a corpse.

The main area of Alfheim, The Ringed Temple is complete. The next set of collectibles are on the Light Elf Sanctuary, which is on the right side of the Sand Bowl (The Sand Bowl that acts as an elevator leading you out of the Ringed Temple!)

gow-nornir-treasure-chest-collectible Nornir Chest 4/4

This chest is all the way at the back of this area. You will need to open a gate using a lever. Go through the gate and take a left. This will lead you to the Nornir Chest. This one is a bit tricky as none of the bells are lit up. So you have to hit them all to see which ones count towards the chest. The solution is: first bell is right above you when you enter this small area. The second bell is 2 bells to the left of the first bell. And the third bell is 3 bells left of the second bell. You need to hit them in quick succession to open the chest.

gow-realm-tear-encounter Realm Tear Encounter 1/2

Go back to the area that connects to the previous Nornir Chest. You can use the lever there to open the gate that is covered in vines and cysts. The trick to opening this one is to use the lever to activate the gate, and then quickly hit the bottom cyst using the axe throw. Now recall the axe quickly and throw the axe at the top cyst through the hole to break that one. Quickly recall the axe to hit the bottom cyst that regrows on the way back. This will permanently removes the cysts. Behind this gate you can find the Realm Tear. Kill the enemies to seal it

gow-artefact-collectible Artefact 5/6

After the previous Realm Tear, follow the path back to beach. This time you will be on the top platform where a Draugr was initially shooting fire balls at you. There are 3 cysts below you. Line up all 3 and throw your axe to destroy them. This will clear them up and also reveal an artefact beside a corpse on the same platform you are standing on.

gow-legendary-chest-collectible Legendary Chest 4/5

From the previous artefact, drop down to the lower area, and go right into the tunnel that just cleared up. Inside the tunnel you can spot a legendary chest in the middle with vines covering it. There are 3 cysts at the top of the room you need to destroy in quick succession. Use the wheel mechanism. Rotate it all the way and the handle above with the cyst will move accordingly. Your goal is to move the wheel all the way till it reaches it stopping point and then quickly run to the right of the wheel, and aim at the cyst that is not moving. Once the other 2 cysts align with the cyst that is not moving, throw you axe at them to destroy them all. This might take a couple tries, but destroying them will free up the vines on the chest.

The last batch of collectibles are on the Light Elf Shore, which is on the left side of the Sand Bowl (The Sand Bowl that acts as an elevator leading you out of the Ringed Temple!)

gow-realm-tear-encounter Realm Tear Encounter 2/2

After docking at the shores of this area, head left inside the small cavern. After fighting some Nightmares, you need to light the 3 crystals on the floor with light arrows. This will cause a Realm Tear to appear. Kill the enemies to seal it.

gow-raven-collectible Odin’s Raven 1/2

From the previous Realm Tear, heading to the opening in the cavern and look towards the Light of Alfheim. Now look left and above you. There is a raven perched on some rocks on the outside walls of the cavern.

gow-artefact-collectible Artefact 6/6

This artefact is beside a corpse on the right from where you dock the boat on the shore.

gow-legendary-chest-collectible Legendary Chest 5/5

After the previous artefact, follow the tunnel on the right to the end. You will find the chest at the end of the path overlooking the entire shoreline.

gow-hidden-chamber-collectible Hidden Chamber 1/1

*To access this Chamber you need Thamur’s Magic Chisel piece. This is automatically earned through the story, so you need to come back here via the Realm Travel Room, after acquiring it.

This chamber is at the end of a tunnel directly in front of the beach from where you dock.

gow-mystic-gateway-collectible Mystic Gateway 1/1

This gateway is inside the Hidden Chamber. Take the elevator down and it should be directly in front of you.

gow-legendary-chest-collectible Legendary Chest 1/3

gow-raven-collectible Odin’s Raven 1/6

This raven is directly after the previous chest. Go into the circular ringed structure and look up. The raven is perched on top of an orb. This is a Winds of Hel Trap. You can switch to your axe and throw it at the raven to kill it.

gow-artefact-collectible Artefact 2/5

After reaching the giant gate leading into Helheim, you have to take another route to get inside. Burn the brambles to the left, and continue along the path. Once you shimmy along the ledge, you will fight some enemies. Kill them all, and climb the wall. You will climb around the wall and end up of the bottom platform. More enemies will spawn. Once you kill them, look up on one of the stone pillars here. There is a spot covered in brambles. Use the Blades of Chaos to burn them. An artefact will drop down once the brambles are burned.

gow-raven-collectible Odin’s Raven 2/6

gow-artefact-collectible Artefact 3/5

After the previous raven, you will need to climb a wall to continue along the story path. Once you do climb up, walk forward a bit and look above you. There are some brambles on the ceiling. Burn them for the next artefact to drop onto the floor.

gow-legendary-chest-collectible Legendary Chest 2/3

After killing the Gatekeeper and acquiring the Winds of Hel ability, you will work your way back to the Gate of Helheim. This is a gate that requires two orbs (wind traps) to be filled with Winds of Hel energy to open. You need to transfer one of these energies to a door close to Tyr’s Bridge. This is a long way. First transfer the wind energy from the gate to an orb along the path to the right. It’s beside a Traveler enemy. Now transfer the energy to an orb to the left beside the next gate. The next orb to transfer will be beyond the gate onto the right underneath a statue. Next is to transfer the energy to an orb behind a statue on the right side of the path. Once you get here, more enemies spawn, so take care of them. The next orb to transfer the energy is inside the circular ringed structure. The orb is inside the ring itself where the first raven was! The second last orb to transfer the energy is to the left beyond some ice. You need to go all the way to the left close to the edge to see it. Now go to the other side of the ice by getting close to the doors of Tyr’s Temple. From the other side of the ice, you can snag the energy and run to the door that is below the stairs on the left side of Tyr’s Temple. Run down the stairs and look to the left to find the door with the wind trap orb. Transfer the energy into this orb to open the door with the Legendary chest inside it!

*The rest of the collectibles can only be collected by coming back to Helheim with Atreus. You need his shock arrows

Use the Realm travel room to go to Muspelheim. This realm is different in the sense that there isn’t much to explore. There are 6 trial locations where you can test your might. Each trial location has 2 trials, and once you get all the way to the top of the mountain, you can fight a Valkyrie.

Niflheim

All Collectibles for GOW Niflheim: gow-favor-collectiblex3, gow-realm-tear-encounter x3, gow-valkyrie-collectible x1,gow-shop-collectiblex1

*In order to access Niflheim, you need to collect 4 language ciphers from purple cipher chests. Once you collect 4, you will learn the rune to travel to Niflheim. Use the Realm travel room to go to Niflheim. This realm is the most different compared to the rest. The traps and areas are procedurally generated, so each run will be different. Still some collectibles should be around the same general area.

gow-shop-collectible Shop 1/1

After reaching Niflheim, walk forward along the only path and you will undoubtedly reach the entrance of Ivaldi’s Workshop maze. Sindri’s shop is set up to the left of the entrance.

gow-favor-collectible Favor 1/3 (Ivaldi’s Workshop Side Quest)

Talk to Sindi and he will give you this Side Quest. You need to collect 500 Mist Echoes in the maze. You are constantly being poisoned by the mist, so move quickly. Loot chest, and defeat enemies as quickly as you can to amass the 500 Mist Echoes, which shouldn’t be too bad. Once you have 500, go back to Sindri. Go the “Buy” section, then choose “Resources”, and finally craft the “Niflheim Entry Stone” using the 500 Mist Echoes. Now take the entry stone and go the pedestal at the beginning area of the maze. Insert it to open the Workshop area, and the Side Quest will be complete.

gow-favor-collectible Favor 2/3 (Ivaldi’s Protection Side Quest)

This one starts as soon as you finish the previous one, after opening the Workshop. You are tasked to open one of the chests inside the main Workshop area. So grind some more Mist Echoes and open the cheapest chest and go back to Sindri to finish this side quest.

gow-favor-collectible Favor 3/3 (Ivaldi’s Curse Side Quest)

This one starts directly after finishing the previous one. The goal is to close the 3 Realm Tears inside the Workshop area. Each Realm Tear costs a lot of Mist Echoes to open, and each one requires an Anchor of Fog. Anchor of Fog is a special resource required to open the Tears in this Realm. It can only be found inside chests randomly at the very heart of the maze. So you have a lot of grinding to do before you can open and seal all Realm Tears. The best way to farm Mist Echoes is to make a complete circle around the entire maze, while collecting all contents from chest, and killing/looting enemies. Each chest you open will progressively give you more Mist Echoes for that run, and enemies drops loot that can also be sold for Mist Echoes. The chests can also give you resources to sell for Mist Echoes. So do a complete and thorough sweep while being quick! Once you seal all 3 Tears, go to Sindri and talk to him to complete this quest.

gow-realm-tear-encounter Realm Tear Encounter 1/3
