Reward: 30x Whispering Slab and Jewel of Yggdrasil
As you progress through The Oarsmen level of God of War: Ragnarök, you will have to pull a chain to progress. As the chain moves, you will reveal a hidden staircase. Follow this newly revealed path to find the chest inside to the right.
The Lost Treasury
Reward: Folkvangr Whetstone Accessory – Sigil Punishment
The Lost Treasury Legendary chest is the most complicated chest to get in Midgard. For this, you need to solve the puzzle of Tyr’s Shield.
For this puzzle, you need to make sure that the gear stays in the center so you can open the door and go through it.
As you start the puzzle, turn the gear to the right side and climb the gear to get to the cliff ledge. Here, blow the pot and break the rocks blocking the doorway in between the two sides of the cliff. From here, simply drop down again.
After you jump down, turn the gear to the left, then climb back up the cliff from the left side. Now, with the gear turned to the left, slide the broken pillar here to make sure that the gear doesn’t go all the way to the right again. After sticking the pillar, get down and turn the gear to the right again, and the gear will get stuck in the middle, allowing you access to the gate behind the gear.
Now, you need to keep the back gate open long enough for you to get inside. Turn the crank and you need to freeze the two gears in place to keep the gate open, shoot your axe at one of the gears, and get Freya to keep it frozen it. Then recall your axe and freeze the second gear.
As soon as the second gear is frozen, quickly dash through the gate and the chest directly in front of you is the Lost Treasury Legendary Chest
Well of Urd
Reward: Shield Attachment – Rond of Purification
After your first encounter with the Raider in the Well of Urd, you’ll have to climb a cliff to the next area. Here, you also have the option to head left.
Follow the path and smash through the broken square spot at the edge of the cliff. The broken wall will directly lead you to the chest.
Lake of Nine
Reward: Spear Handle – Lion’s Roar Sauroter
This chest is found after the reunion quest. After you return to the Lake of Nine, head west of Lake of Nine. Here, destroy the ice block with your newfound Dranpnir Spear. The legendary chest is hidden.
