The second Nornir chest can be found in the location marked above. You cannot open it the first time you encounter this Nornir chest, as you do not have the tool needed to do so. You have to activate three glowing rune totems, but we aren't sure how this is done. So do not pay it any attention at the moment. We will update this guide when we learn how to open it.
