The first Legendary Chest is located in a cave in the South of The Forbidden Sands. Reference the Map above for the exact location. To open it, you'll need first to defeat the handful of enemies inside, then solve a reflection puzzle with two spinning purple glass plates. You first need to free the glass plate on your left by chaining elements to burn the brambles with your Blades of Chaos. Then, use the spinners to position the two glass plates so that they are each other. Throw your Leviathan axe at the glass plate on the left at an angle to bounce off the plate on the right and clear the hive matter. You can then go loot your Legendary Chest.
