There are technically 18 collectibles to be found in The Crucible region of Muspelheim, but most of these are part of Surtr’s gauntlet Trials and Challenges. We’ll show you exactly where to find the flower for the Nine Realms in Bloom favor here, and we’ll detail what the other collectibles consist of.
Where to Find the Flower for Nine Realms in Bloom in The Crucible of Muspelheim
This is likely to be the first collectible that you find in The Crucible, since it’s located next to the blacksmith where you’ll find Sindri, Brok, or Lunda depending on where you’re at in the story. All you need to do is look towards the south from the blacksmith, and you’ll see the flower on the ground here.
How to Open the Nornir Chest in The Crucible
The Nornir Chest in The Crucible of Muspelheim can’t be opened in the same way that most other Nornir Chests are.

|Population Control||Kill the Elite while keeping the population under the limit|
|King of the Hill||Keep enemies out of the rings until the time expires|
