NORNIR CHESTS

– 1: SOUTH EAST PLAINS – LOCATION –

The Nornir Chest is in the big area to the east of the Plains. It’s just below the Celestial Altar.

There are three humming and vibrating runes around the Nornir Chest. You have to make them all hum and vibrate at the same time to open the chest. Make yourself familiar where they are then be fast hitting them with your axe.



– THE “C” Rune –

The “C” Rune is hidden behind the Nornir Chest.



– THE “R” Rune –

The Rune is just left above the Nornir Chest.



– THE “n” Rune –

The “n” Rune is behind the “R” Rune. You can hit it when standing close to the water. It’s covered in plants that need to be burnt off first. I did that from the top, while up at the Celestial Altar.

You can now open the Nornir Chest.



– 2: NORTH WEST PLAINS – LOCATION –

In the north west of the map is an area closed up by a gate and a green poison plant right next to it so you can’t open the gate. You can freeze this plant from above the area. To get there, you have to go through the other gate – the one to reach one of the dragons. Keep left and you will soon see the gate and the plant.



Now you can go back to the gate and open it.



Inside is the Nornir Chest underneath a statue.



THE RUNES ARE LITTLE STATUES THAT NEED TO BE DESTROYED.

– THE “N” Rune –

The “N” Rune is behind the chest and the statue.



– THE “F” Rune –

Look to the west (left) and you will see the rune on top of a rock.



– THE “R” Rune –

This rune is inside the hollow tree close to the gate.

You can now open the Nornir Chest.


LEGENDARY CHEST

There is only one Legendary Chest in The Plains. It is just north of the Celestial Altar. While you were searching for a way up to the Altar you have probably seen two round and yellow detonation points for the spear. But the third one was nowhere to be found?

First of all, you have to find the way up to the Celestial Altar to be able to access the third detonation point. North west of the altar, on the map, is a cave with a big iron gate and flowers that attack you. You can destroy the flowers and pick up the quest Casualties of War: The Scroll here but you don’t need to if you just want to get up to the Altar. Swing over to the other side of the cave. From here, you can grapple up to a higher level, you are up at the Altar and you activate the MYSTIC GATEWAY: WESTERN PLAINS in no time.

From the Celestial Altar, you can see the Legendary Chest. It is also from here, where you can see and throw your spear at the third detonation point. Detonate all three detonation points to get to the Legendary Chest.



LORE

– 1: TREASURE MAP – A SCAR IS BORN –

After you’ve completed the RETURN OF THE RIVER QUEST in THE JUNGLE, you can hop on a boat and get to the island in the south. It has one of Yggdrasil’s Rifts on it. But also this treasure map on the floor. The Buried Treasure is in the south east.



– 2: LORE MARKER – STUPIDITY –

Take the boat to the south western dock. It’s the same dock you have to go to when hunting the dragon for THE DEAD OF NIGHT.

But instead of dropping down to the dragon’s nest, look up to the right. There are two grapple spots that get up onto an elevated area with a red glowing chest.



There is also a zipline. It will take you to an area next to the Celestial Altar, where Shadows are chanting around two poison pillars. After you’ve defeated them, you can read the Lore Marker standing next to one of the poison pillars.



– 3: LORE MARKER – SEIDR-

Take the boat to the north eastern dock, where the eastern Celestial Altar is. At its base is the lore marker.



– 4: LORE MARKER – APOLOGY –

In the north west of the map is an area closed up by a gate and a green poison plant right next to it so you can’t open the gate. You can freeze this plant from above the area. To get there, you have to go through the other gate – the one to reach one of the dragons. Keep left and you will soon see the gate and the plant.



Now you can go back to the gate and open it.



Inside is the Lore Marker. Turn left at the gate.



– 5: THE LOST PAGES –

You can find another part of the Lost Pages in the Plains but they are in a hidden area called “Wishing Well”. Follow the guide to the Seasonal Stag below if you don’t know how to get there.

At the location of the stag, with the gate in your back, go left. Here you can grapple up to a higher area. Up here, look for a passage to the left with a light at the end.



Go towards the light and you will find the scroll on the floor.



BURIED TREASURE

– A SCAR IS BORN –

You first have to pick up the TREASURE MAP, before you can find this treasure.

Look on the map. There is a big round bridge-like curve in the south east of the plains. That’s exactly the same round remnants that you see in the hint of the Treasure Map. You can climb down a ledge and dig out the treasure underneath this circle.

This Rift is in the Dragon Nest area in the north. You have to go there as part of the FOR VANAHEIM – Rescue Birgir Quest.

You need to have access to the Celestial Altar and turn the area into night time. Then the barrier in front of the big gate in the north of The Plains will open up and you can interact with the gate to go through.

Turn to the right at the crossroads and you will fight the annoying dragon that kept bugging you in The Plains. After the fight, look for a ledge in the west of the dragon nest. The raven is hiding down there.

In the north west of the map is an area with cave-like features. Look down the ravine to spot the raven.

DRAGON HUNTS

You need to have access to the Celestial Altar and completed the RETURN OF THE RIVER QUEST in THE JUNGLE for this Dragon Hunt.

Use the Celestial Altar so it is night time. Then head to the south of the plains and look for a blue glowing slime.



Continue to go to the south, around the rock where the blue slime is on. You will find some more blue slime there. But the path ahead is blocked.



For the next part it is important that you did the RETURN OF THE RIVER Quest in THE JUNGLE. Take a boat and follow the river towards the west. You can get off at the end of the river, where the dreki nest is.

EPIC HUNTS

First wisp location:


Second wisp location:


Third wisp location:



Go to the centre of the area. There is a metal plate with five glowing runes. As soon as you’re close enough a Flame Phantom will brake through it and you have to fight it as usual. Weaken it, then destroy one of the pillars. There are five. They are positioned in the area like the runes on the metal plate.

Only one of them can be attacked with melee, the other four with range attacks.

Defeat the Flame Phantom.



– 2: IN PLAIN SIGHT –

This Quest starts as soon as you find a dead animal in the western parts of the plains, close to the Celestial Altar. Kratos will identify the monster as “Soul Eater”. As soon as you hear Kratos say: “Stay alert.” And Mimir reply: “Aye, some rocks are not like the others.”, look for a monster that looks like a rock.

Attack the rock and the Soul Eater wakes up. Defeat it to finish the quest.



CASUALTIES OF WAR

– 1: THE SCROLL –

West of the plains, north west of the Celestial Altar, is a cave with a big gate in it. And most annoyingly flowers that shoot you. Remember, to destroy those flowers you have to destroy the main bulb that connects all the flowers.

The connectors lead to a big bulb behind the gate. Grapple around it and you will soon see it. Destroy it with the fire of your blades and you won’t be annoyed by the flowers anymore.



The connectors lead to a place behind the gate. Grapple around it and you will soon see the big bulb on the other side. Destroy it and you won’t be annoyed by the flowers anymore.



Go back the corridor you came in to get to this spectre. From here you can grapple up to the Celestial Altar and also activate a MYSTIC GATE. Look around at the top once you’ve reached the Celestial Altar. You can now destroy a barrier with three yellow detonation points for your spear to access the Legendary Chest that is visible from the top of the Altar.

Close to the chest, glowing in purple, on the floor is the second half of the scroll. Pick it up to finish the quest.



– 2: THE STEIN –

For the first part you have to go to THE JUNGLE first. Up on the dam, where the crank wheel is for the RETURN OF THE RIVER QUEST, there is a spirit seeking for help. Pick up the object in front of the blue glow to start the Quest.



The second part of THE STEIN can be found in the nest of the IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT Dragon Hunt.



– 3: THE BROOCH-

Take the boat over to the eastern shore of the Plains. Here, on the floor is one half of a brooch. Pick it up to start the quest.



In the south east of the Plains is one of the big bosses you have to fight. He’s sitting on a ledge when you get to him. At the same location is the other half of the brooch.



SEASONAL STAGS

– 1: MYSTIC GATEWAY: OVERGROWN TOWER –

When you do the FOR VANAHEIM Quest, you get to activate the MYSTIC GATEWAY: OVERGROWN TOWER. Next to the gateway is the winter stag. Interact with it to send it to Ratatoskr.

If you don’t have the feed, talk to the boss squirrel, Ratatoskr at Sindri’s House.



– 2: HIDDEN AREA: WISHING WELL –

There is an area in the south west that is called “Wishing Well”. It counts as THE PLAINS, but the entrance is at THE JUNGLE ENTRANCE.

Starting point is the MYSTIC GATEWAY: THE JUNGLE. From there, cross the water and you will see that you now can open a gate to the left. Just pull the chain.



Open the gate there and follow the cave path inside. You have to fight a nest and throw a spear into a spouting hole to keep going.



Open another gate at the other end and you will see the Seasonal Stag at the other side.
