Aegir’s Hall - Ymir’s Blood Stone 1

This Ymir’s Blood Stone can be found within Aegir’s Hall, in the southeast of Jotunheim. Once you’re inside the hall, look to the west to find some ladders. You’ll find the chest containing the wealth at the top of the ladders. However, before you can open it, you’ll need to retrieve a key which can be found at the bottom of Aegir’s mead cauldron, located just to the southwest of the hall. Dive into the cauldron and take the key from the bottom, then use it to open the chest.

Northeast of Aegir’s Hall 1 - Ymir’s Blood Stone 2

There are a total of three Ymir’s Blood Stones located on the coast northeast of Aegir’s Hall. To reach two of them, you’ll need to approach the coast from a specific point to ensure that you pass beyond the Jotnar magical illusion. This illusion is obscuring the location of some shipwrecks, and to dispel it you’ll need to pass through two totems, as shown below. Once you’ve passed through the totems, you’ll find the first chest in the skeleton of a ship directly ahead. However, you won’t be able to access it as you approach from the northwest, as this too is obscured by Jotnar magic. Instead, approach it from the other side of the ship skeleton (approaching from the southeast) to access a version of the chest which isn’t frozen, and can be opened.

The third Ymir’s Blood Stone, and the second to be found northeast of Aegir’s Hall, is located in a small ship just northeast of the one we just found in the ship skeleton. To break the illusion and find the chest in its accessible form, approach it from the north through the totems shown below.

Northeast of Aegir’s Hall 3 - Ymir’s Blood Stone 4

The fourth Ymir’s Blood Stone, and the third located northeast of Aegir’s Hall, can be found in a shipwreck beneath the waves to the south. To access it, dive under the water as you approach the shipwreck from the north. You’ll find a breakable wooden barrier blocking the way, but this can be destroyed with a simple melee attack. You’ll find the chest beyond it.

Skrymir’s Mitten 1 - Ymir’s Blood Stone 5

There are a total of two Ymir’s Blood Stones located within Skrymir’s Mitten, the entrance to which can be found north of Aegir’s Hall. Once inside, follow the linear path until you find a large open chamber. Make your way to the second level, killing any hostile Jotnar as you find them, and then head north toward the cauldron. As you approach it from the south you’ll find a locked gate. Slide under the hole to the right of the gate to access the area where the cauldron can be found. From here, look above you to the east to find a wealth chest on the ledge (use Odin’s Sight to highlight if necessary). To reach it, you’ll need to move the stone block toward the large wooden branch to the south. This will allow you to reach the rope above, leading to the ledge and the chest.

Skrymir’s Mitten 2 - Ymir’s Blood Stone 6

The second Ymir’s Blood Stone within Skrymir’s Mitten can be found in a storage room through a door in the south of the main chamber. This is directly south of the large cauldron where you found the first Ymir’s Blood Stone in the mitten, so it should be easy to highlight with Odin’s Sight.

North of Serpent’s Tree 1 - Ymir’s Blood Stone 7

The first Ymir’s Blood Stone that you come across north of the Serpent’s Tree is located within the ruin of an orchard. When you first approach the ruin, you won’t be able to see the orchard, but you will see that the chest is locked behind a barricaded stone wall. The wall is of a type that can usually be destroyed with a fire pot, but you won’t find any nearby at this point. First, you’ll need to approach the ruin from the northwest, at the point shown on the map below, through two totems. The totems are the same as any others that you’ve found throughout Jotunheim, which grant access to an otherwise hidden area. Once you’ve passed through them you’ll be able to explore the orchard, and you’ll notice some stone pillars to the east. Climb these until you reach the last one to the south, on top of which you’ll find two more totems. As you move through these you can dive into a haystack below, and now you’ll be able to see inside the ruin through an iron gate. Look through the gate for a fire pot within, and shoot it to destroy the barricade, granting access to the chest.

North of Serpent’s Tree 2 - Ymir’s Blood Stone 8

This Ymir’s Blood Stone can be found within the cave lair of the legendary animal Steinnbjorn. You don’t have to defeat the bear before you can access it, but you’ll have an easier time reaching it if you do. If you haven’t yet defeated Steinnbjorn, have some rations ready to heal yourself and run toward the back of the cave, where you’ll find the chest. You should then be able to run out relatively unscathed. Just don’t hang around unless you’re seeking death by stone and ice in bear form.

Southwest of Skrymir’s Mitten 1 - Ymir’s Blood Stone 9

This Ymir’s Blood Stone can be found within a hidden house, which is accessed during the The Puppeteer mystery. If you missed the wealth chest during the mystery, you can still access the interior of the house in the same way as before. Just enter the house from the north, then turn southeast briefly before turning around to enter through the same door. You will now be able to find the chest on the ground floor of the house.

(1 of 3) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 9, southwest of Skrymir’s Mitten.

Southwest of Skrymir’s Mitten 2 - Ymir’s Blood Stone 10

This one is relatively simple to find. Just a bit further south east from Ymir’s Blood Stone 9, you’ll find a large rock surrounded by some Jotnar. Kill the Jotnar and then look for the fire pots at the base of the rock. You’ll find some breakable ice next to them. Shoot the ice to reveal the chest.

West of Ymir’s Altar - Ymir’s Blood Stone 11

This is another one which can be found by passing through two totems. Look for the totems near the wealth location as you approach from the east, as shown below. When you pass through, you’ll see the remnants of a wedding scene, with the chest at the top of the nearby steps. To open it, you’ll need to find two keys in the surrounding area. Use Odin’s Sight to highlight them: one on a rock to the southwest of the chest, and one at the bottom of a tree to the northeast.

(1 of 4) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 11, west of Ymir’s Altar.

Northeast of Leyna Falls - Ymir’s Blood Stone 12

To find this one, you’ll need to approach the wealth from the west. You’ll find the chest trapped behind some ice. Break the ice wall on the western side to gain access.

Northwest of Leyna Falls - Ymir’s Blood Stone 13

This one can be found in a small mine northwest of Leyna Falls. You’ll need two keys to open the chest. As you’re facing the mine entrance, look to the crane in the northeast and shoot the link holding the cargo in place. This will drop the cargo and destroy it, revealing a key in the rubble. Take the key and then climb to the top of the crane. From this vantage point you can aim at the link holding more cargo in the tower to the west. Shoot the link to send the cargo crashing down to the ground, and loot the key from the rubble. You can now go inside the mine and use one of the nearby fire pots to destroy the barricade, revealing the chest.

(1 of 6) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 13, northwest of Leyna Falls.

Heart of the Wood - Ymir’s Blood Stone 14

If you’ve already completed Mistress of the Iron Wood, you’ll know how to access the hidden house already. If not, approach it from the east and look through the two totems between the trees. When you pass through you’ll be able to climb the steps to the house above. Once inside, continue through the house up two sets of ladders, leading to a bedroom with the chest beside the bed. To open the chest, you’ll need to get the key from an attic above the bedroom. To reach it, exit the bedroom through the window and follow the root system upward. Destroy the boxes in the attic to find the key, and use it to open the chest in the bedroom.

(1 of 5) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 14, in a hidden house at the Heart of the Wood.

Thrym’s House 1 - Ymir’s Blood Stone 15

This is one of the easiest to find, located immediately southwest of Thrym’s House in a small Jotnar camp. Kill the Jotnar and loot the chest, which is exposed under a canopy attached to two trees and a large rock.

Thrym’s House 2 - Ymir’s Blood Stone 16

This chest is located underwater within Thrym’s House. To access the house, you’ll need to jump into the the water from the break in the ice, as shown below. Once you’re underwater, swim northwest toward the interior of the house. You’ll come upon a large open chamber with another pool. Dive into the pool to find the chest.

(1 of 3) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 16, within Thrym’s House.

Northeast of Thrym’s House - Ymir’s Blood Stone 17

This one can be found in a chest at the top of a tower northeast of Thrym’s House. To climb the tower without issue, approach it from the east and follow the stone platforms until you find a mossy wall. Climb up from here to find the chest at the top. Before you can open it, you’ll need to find a key nearby. Climb down the ladder near the chest and break the ice at the bottom of them. From here, you’ll see an exit marked by two totems. Pass through the totems to find another tower, which wasn’t there before. Climb this tower from its eastern side to enter the room where you’ll find the key. Move the barricade and take the key, then climb the ladder in this room which leads to a rope wire, taking you directly back to the chest atop the tower opposite.

(1 of 4) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 17, northeast of Thrym’s House.

Southeast Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 18

This one can be found beneath some hanging cargo at the location shown below, in the southeast of Utgard. To reach the chest, shoot the link holding the cargo in place above it. You’ll then need to find a key in the house opposite (to the east). To gain access to the house, go to its eastern side and move the barricade blocking the window. You can then shoot the lock to the front door, and take the key from within.

(1 of 4) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 18, in southeast Utgard.

Suttungr’s Hall, Central Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 19

This chest can be found at the top floor of Suttungr’s Hall, in central Utgard. When you enter the hall, look to the south to find a ladder. Shoot its link to lower it, then climb to the top to find the chest. Before you can loot it, you’ll need to take the key from the northwest. Move the barricade southward and then climb on top of it to reach the wooden platform. From here, you can jump down to take the key, and go back the way you came to the chest.

(1 of 3) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 19, within Suttungr’s Hall, in central Utgard.

East of Enchanted Tower 1, Western Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 20

This chest can be found behind a locked door east of the Enchanted Tower in western Utgard. You’ll find a few Jotnar patrolling outside of the door, so you may need to kill them if they spot you. From the locked door, turn north to another door providing entrance to the same building, which is open. Once inside, you’ll need to move a series of barricades to gain access to the chest at the other side. The barricades are fairly linear to move so you shouldn’t have much trouble here, but you’ll need to move a crate out of the way and a fire pot at one point.

(1 of 3) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 20, east of the Enchanted Tower.

East of Enchanted Tower 2, Western Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 21

This one is located in a small stone structure with a locked gate. When you try to open the gate you’ll find that it requires a key. The key to this gate, however, is on the other side of it. To gain access, use the rope wire above the building and jump down to the roof of the structure from it. You can now break the wooden roof and gain access to the chest, as well as the key inside to leave through the gate.

(1 of 3) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 21, east of the Enchanted Tower.

East of Enchanted Tower 3, Western Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 22

This one is most easily accessed after obtaining the wealth above (Ymir’s Blood Stone 20). Now that you have access to the building containing fire pots, take one of them and use it to destroy the barricade nearby to the east. You can then loot the chest within.

(1 of 3) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 22, east of the Enchanted Tower in Utgard.

Enchanted Tower 1, Western Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 23

This one is located at the top of the Enchanted Tower in western Utgard. To reach it, you’ll need to pass through a series of illusions as you climb the tower from within. Approach the tower from its western side to gain access to the bottom of it, then follow the magical golden lights flowing through and around the tower, passing through numerous doors and windows as they appear. Eventually you will reach a level with some breakable ice with a movable stone pillar behind it. Place the pillar next to the rocks to the north, granting access to the platform where the chest is located.

(1 of 4) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 23, at the top of the Enchanted Tower in western Utgard.

Enchanted Tower 2, Western Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 24

Once you’ve got the first Ymir’s Blood Stone from the top of the Enchanted Tower, the second one is easy to find at the bottom. All you need to do is leave the platform where you found the first chest through the totems to the west - thereby revealing the lush green roots beyond - and then climb through the window to the northwest. From here, you can drop down to the ledge outside and climb along the wall around the tower, following the moss upward until you reach the synchronization point at the top. Once there, jump down into the haystack below to find the chest.

(1 of 5) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 24, at the bottom of the Enchanted Tower.

Northeast of Utgard’s Vault, Western Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 25

To reach this one, you’ll need to approach the heavily guarded storage area marked by three red and black banners, as shown below. You can try to sneak inside, or just kill all the Jotnar guarding the place first. Once you’re in, look to you right for a crate blocking a hole. Move the crate and slide under the hole, then take the key beneath the stairs here. Be sure to use Odin’s Sight to highlight the location of the key if you’re having trouble finding it. Once you have the key, go up the stairs and open the gate, behind which the chest can be found.

Fighting Pit, North of Grotto, Eastern Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 26

This one can be found in Fighting Pit of Utgard, located near the eastern entrance to the settlement. From the eastern entrance, look for the entrance to the Fighting Pit, as shown below. Once you’re inside, Use Odin’s Sight and keep to the left, following the linear path. You’ll find the chest at the back of a room here.

Northeast of Grotto, Eastern Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 27

This one can be found in a chest within a small house in the northeasternmost point of Utgard. You’ll need to kill some Jotnar surrounding the house before you can enter it without being harassed. Once you have, move the nearby pillar under the hanged man on the tree. You can then climb the pillar and take the key from him, using it to open the chest within the house.

West of Feasting Hall, Northern Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 28

This one can be found behind a seemingly forgotten frozen doorway. To get inside the room behind it, you’ll need to shoot the ice to its left. Once inside, move the pillar to the centre of the room, then jump to the ledge to the north from it. From the ledge you can shoot another ice barrier, then jump to the ledge where the chest can be found.

(1 of 4) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 28, west of the Feasting Hall.

Utgard’s Keep 1, Northern Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 29

This one can be found in the kitchen behind the throne in Utgard’s Keep. To access the kitchen, climb through the hole above the throne to its right. Once inside, shoot the link holding the cargo in place, then jump from the platforms toward the chest and move the barricade which is blocking the way to the last platform, where the chest is located.

Utgard’s Keep 2, Northern Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 30

You’ll find this one within the keep proper. Follow the stairs outside the entrance to the Feasting Hall and then climb over the shut doors. Drop down into the keep from here and follow the stairs east then north. You’ll find a chest in the first room you come across, behind a small throne.

(1 of 3) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 30, within the first room of the keep.

Utgard’s Keep 3, Northern Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 31

This one can be found further up in Utgard’s Keep. Follow the steps west and then south, and continue following the linear path upward until you reach a room with a locked gate (you’ll have to break an ice barrier along the way). Here you’ll find a key on a window ledge. Take this and open the gate, then follow the path into another room where you’ll find the chest behind two Jotnar in an armory room.

(1 of 4) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 31, within Utgard’s Keep.

Utgard’s Keep 4, Northern Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 32

Continue up the steps south of where you found the last chest in the keep, then break the ice barrier to the southeast. Behind this you’ll find another chest containing Ymir’s Blood Stone 31. You’ll need to jump along the wooden platforms to reach it.

(1 of 2) The location of Ymir’s Blood Stone 32, behind an ice wall within Utgard’s Keep.

Utgard’s Keep 5, Northern Utgard - Ymir’s Blood Stone 33

From where you looted the last wealth chest in the keep, turn west and look for the wooden planks with a red flag attached, leading to an open gate. Once you’re inside the keep, follow the steps up until you see an open window to the west. Go through this to some more steps outside, which you can climb to the final room at the top of the keep. In this room you’ll find the last chest containing Ymir’s Blood stone 33.
