How to unlock the Nornir chest at The Forge in God of War Ragnarok

Get the loot!

As players work through their journey in God of War Ragnarok, they will be met with many obstacles and puzzles, many of which won't have answers the first time they are encountered. The Nornir Chest in The Forge, located in Svartalfheim, is a key example of this. Players will not be able to complete this Nornir Chest until they're on The Path called on Forging Destiny where they'll acquire an item to open it.

You cannot open this Nornir Chest on your first time seeing it. Do not read further unless you wish to read spoilers on how to open it.

The second Rune is located to the left of the Nornir Chest and off the side of the cliff. It sits on a rock a bit further out than Kratos can reach by hand. Perfect distance for a Spear.
