God of War Ragnarök features all Nine Realms to explore, many of which contain dungeons to complete. The first realm you tackle is that of Svartalfheim, and your quest will eventually bring you to the Myrkr Mines to forge a powerful weapon. The Myrkr Mines in Svartalfheim is a dungeon with a few collectibles and puzzles to solve. You must solve many of these to progress in the mines. Here is how to complete the Myrkr Mines in God of War Ragnarök.
How to complete The Myrkr Mines in God of War Ragnarök
Brok will drop you off in the Myrkr Mines and leave you and Freya alone. Proceed forward and take the path to the right of the explosive barrel. Destroy the red vines to reveal a crawling tunnel with loot. Return to the main corridor and destroy the explosive barrel. Go through the door and defeat the tunnels within. Detonate the oil puddle next to the metal bars with an explosive barrel on the other side.
How to open the gate in the Myrkr Mines in God of War Ragnarök
Go through this newly blasted door and defeat the enemies in this room. Take the right path to gather some quick loot and find the vegetable cart. Push this aside to reveal a gate blocking your path. Find the chain in the room and pull on it. Have Freya target the rune above the gate with a Sigil Arrow and then freeze it with the Leviathan Axe. Quickly move forward and destroy the chain behind the gate to clear the way forward.
How to turn the Waterwheels in the Myrkr Mines in God of War Ragnarök
Continue forward and find yourself in a room with water wheels. Go to the one on the left and use your Leviathan Axe to freeze the trough and turn the water wheel. Crawl through the tunnel and defeat the enemies you encounter. Be sure to knock down the plate blocking the climbable wall in the water wheel room. There is also a Nornir Chest in this area.
Go through to the next chamber and climb the chain against the wall. At the end of this tunnel, a switch will spin a trough in the water wheel room. Return to this chamber and use Sigil Arrows to freeze the top trough, forcing the water to flow into the bottom trough. Freeze a spot on the bottom trough above the water wheel. This will open the remaining door. Pass through it and climb the walls to exit the Myrkr Mines and enter The Forge.
