All Collectibles in Alberich Island

Nathan Garvin

How to find every collectible in the Alberich Island area in God of War Ragnarok, including Nornir Chests, Lore, Buried Treasure and Yggdrasil Rifts. Some collectibles may not be obtainable on your first visit, in which case this guide will mention if that’s the case with as few spoilers as possible. None of the collectibles in God of War: Ragnarok are missable, as you can come back later in post-game.

How to Find Alberich Island

During the main quest The Quest for Tyr you’ll travel to Svartalfheim, passing through the Aurvangar Wetlands and Nidavellir as you seek answers. Eventually you’ll be tasked with finding a dwarf named Durlin, which will take you into the Bay of Bounty. Alberich Island (not to be confused with Alberic Hollow, to the south) can be found along the northeastern corner of the Bay of Bounty.

There are a great deal of collectibles here, but sadly only one of them - the Nornir chest - can be obtained during your first visit. Still, there’s plenty of incentive to plunder this chest before moving on.

Where to Find all Nornir Chests on Alberich Island

There’s only one Nornir chest on Alberich Island, and it’s just east of where you beach your boat. This particular puzzle is one of the gong-rune variants, where instead of runes on destructible rune rocks, the runes are on gongs. Strike the rune gongs to get them to emit a noise that disrupts the locks on the Nornir chest, but be wary, as the gongs only sound so long before their effects waver and the Nornir chest locks up again. You’ll need to strike all three rune gongs in succession before the effects of the first gong wear off.

Your three targets are on a cliff just to the right of the Nornir chest, suspended on a crane to the west and hung from a post to the northwest. The western and northwestern gongs are protected by gates, so there’s a specific order you’ll have to do this in. To access the northwestern gong you’ll need to throw the Leviathan Axe at some rotating panels to the left of the gate, which will raise the post the gong is on. This effect is temporary, however, so you’ll need to strike the gong quickly before it lowers, making this the obvious place to start. Before that, however, head to the western gong and note the glowing green metal around the base of the crane. Shoot it with one of Atreus’s Sonic Arrows to warp the metal and damage the crane, causing the gong suspended by the crane to become exposed. Now you can shoot this gong any time you wish.

  • Rune 1 - To the northwest of the Nornir chest, throw your Leviathan Axe at the revolving panels to the left of the gate to raise the post the rune gong is on. Two hits will give you plenty of time to strike the gong with your Leviathan Axe.

  • Rune 2 - To the west of the Nornir chest, just south of where you had to stand to deal with the first rune (above). Assuming you shot the crane’s base with a Sonic Arrow, the gong should be accessible.

  • Rune 3 - Just to the right of and behind the Nornir chest.

Give these gongs a go and if you hit them all quickly enough, you’ll unlock the Nornir chest. If not… well, you’ll be more familiar with their locations the next time around. Keep trying until the Nornir chest unlocks, then loot it for an Idunn Apple.
