Legendary Chests are one of many collectibles that you can find in God of War: Ragnarok. They contain valuable loot like crafting materials, weapon attachments, amulet attachments, and runic attacks.
There are a total of 53 Legendary Chests scattered all across the realms in the game. Some of them will be right in the open but others will require you to either complete little puzzles or find your way around.
Take note that finding all Legendary Chests is necessary for a 100 percent completion run. However, you will not be able to find all of them on your first visit.
Something else to know is that some realms have untracked Legendary Chests, meaning that they are not required for a 100 percent completion run.
Niflheim and Midgard, for example, have one untracked chest each. Helheim, Jotunheim, Asgard, and Muspelheim only have untracked chests.
The following guide will tell you where to find all of the Legendary Chests in all of the realms in God of War: Ragnarok.

There is only Legendary Chest in Muspelheim and it is an untracked chest. You will be able to find it during The Summoning quest. When you reach the Mystic Gateway as shown on the map, drop down the ledge and head right into the cave. You will find the chest here.

Where to find Legendary Chests in Asgard
Plains of Ida Legendary Chest location
Head west to reach Hrimthur’s Wall. Climb the two small ledges and you will find an untracked Legendary Chest covered in Hel’s Bramble.
Add a bunch of Hex Bubbles on the chest and chain them by putting one close to the other. Climb on top of the ledge next to the chest and link the bubbles to the other side of the drop where there is a campfire.
Shoot an arrow into the fire and ignite the bubbles to remove Hel’s Bramble.
You will get the Splintered Sigil ability that allows Atreus to fire a seeking Sigil arrow.
The Rift Legendary Chest location
The last Legendary Chest in Asgard is also an untracked collectible. You will be able to get to the chest during Into the fire when Thor returns with you from Muspelheim.
Wait until the cutscene ends and then head back to the location marked on the map to get the chest.
It will contain the Runic Capacity accessory that refills your runic arrows and also empowers them.
