God of War: Ragnarok

All Collectibles in Vanaheim - The Jungle

Jarrod Garripoli

This page will detail all of the collectibles found in The Jungle area of Vanaheim in God of War Ragnarok.

Vanaheim is one of the nine realms you will visit during the main course of the story, and was the home of Freya. One of the areas of Vanaheim you will explore is called The Jungle, although you won’t be able to visit this place until much later in the game. After finishing the second story trip to Vanaheim, you will have to do a few more things and then, you will have access to The Jungle.

How to Find The Jungle in Vanaheim

First and foremost, progress the main story until you have completed Creatures of Prophecy. When that is over, you will find a hound by one of the exits in Freyr’s Camp, allowing you to start the Favor, Scent of Survival. Doing this Favor will automatically bring you to The Crater section of Vanaheim, where you will end up in The Plains. Once you have control on The Plains, you will need to follow the steps to reach The Jungle, which can be found on the How to Reach The Jungle page. It’s ideal to complete the Return to the River Favor, too, while in The Jungle, as it is needed to get everything there. There’s only a few things that can be gotten without finishing that Favor.

(1 of 4) Use the Celestial Altar to turn it into night time

Where to Find the Nornir Chest in The Jungle

After restoring water, return to the main area of The Jungle and get a boat. Starting from the shore by the initial gateway (Jungle Entrance), row south, then west when you can, and finally south once more. You should see the Nornir Chest located just a little inland from where you can get on shore. If this is your first time here, you will have to take care of some enemies first (Wulvers and Nokken). This Nornir Chest will require you to hit the devices and turn it to the correct rune.

Rune 1 (E)

The first Rune will be to the right of the Nornir Chest, up in the air a little bit. This will be right above the spirit that gives the Casualty of War - The Toy Favor.

Rune 2 (N)

Head on over to the Celestial Altar and look to the northeast. You should see some red vines in that direction, just to the left of the Hacksilver chest on the ledge above you. Burn the vines to reveal the Rune underneath it, so all you have to do is change it to the correct one.

(1 of 5) The Nornir Chest is where you fight some Wulvers and Nokken

Rune 3 (B)

Right next to the previous Rune, there is a wall you can climb, putting you on the ledge with the Hacksilver chest. Facing the Celestial Altar, look up and you should see this Rune sitting on top of the structure housing the altar.

Where to Find All Legendary Chests in The Jungle

Legendary Chest 1

(1 of 4) You will need to use the grapple points to get to a higher ledge

The first Legendary Chest will pretty much be in the way when doing the Trail of the Dead favor. Head to the area with the two Wulvers and the Nornir Chest, which is also where the Celestial Altar is located. Climb the wall by the altar and drop off to the side, where you will come to a bunch of grapple points. Take these to a ledge and opposite of you will be some vines. Use the ceiling to place sigils and burn the vines, then use the grapple points to go across to open the Legendary Chest, with the Whisper of the World Light Runic Attack for the Draupnir Spear being your reward.

Legendary Chest 2

First, you need to make sure it’s daytime, so head to the Celestial Altar to change it, if needed. Use your boat to head over to the area with the Ogres, where you should see a grapple point to get across the waters during the day. Follow this trail all the way to a giant footprint, which is also where you can squeeze through a wall nearby it. If this is your first time here, you will start the Path of Destruction Favor. There will be a large hole in the center of this area, so drop down into it to find yourself in a cage.

If you do Path of Destruction, you will come across this Legendary Chest

If you look upwards near where you dropped down, you should see a rotating object you can hit with your axe. Hit it once, then quickly recall your axe and toss it at the runic disc, allowing you to escape this cage. The Legendary Chest will be in the nearby hallway, so open it up for a Jewel of Yggdrasil.

Where to Find All Lore in The Jungle

Lore Marker - Unforgiven

The Lore Marker is at the dam, before passing through the wall

This will be found at the dam, which you will go to when you do the Return of the River Favor. After entering The Jungle, drop off the ledge to the right and go past the poison totem. You will fight some Wulvers here, so defeat them and climb the wall behind them. Keep going on this path, past some more enemies, and burn the vines at the end to reveal a lift that will take you to the dam itself. After defeating the enemies at the dam, you will find the Lore Marker - Unforgiven there, before busting open a wall and passing through it.

Rune Read - City of Possibility

This get this Lore, you will first need to turn it day. The Celestial Altar is on the island with the Wulvers and Nornir Chest. After doing that, head over to the area with the Ogres and some large vines will have semi-formed a bridge over the waters. Grapple across and follow the path until you find a large footprint, similar to the others you’ve found in The Jungle. Near that footprint, there will be a spot where you can slide along the wall, bringing you to a lair filled with bones.

You will find the Rune Read on the wall after escaping the cage that’s part of Path of Destruction

In the middle of the lair (the Path of Destruction Favor starts here) is a large hole, so drop down into it to put yourself into a makeshift cage. Just above where you dropped down, there is a rotating wooden thing you can hit with your axe, which raises the cage. Hit it once, then quickly recall the axe and strike the runic disc to keep the cage raised, allowing you to get out of it. After doing that, look on the wall just outside the cage to find the Rune Read.

Where to Find the Artifact in The Jungle

Artifact - Kvasir’s Poem - An Organization: In The Future

(1 of 2) You will climb a wall as you journey to The Jungle

You will climb a wall as you journey to The Jungle (left), The Artifact is in the corner right after climbing that wall (right)

This is the first collectible you will find in The Jungle, as it’s pretty much right in your face as you venture to the area. When you go through the tunnel after turning it into night, on the way to the proper part of The Jungle, you will have to climb a wall to overcome a large gap. After getting to the other side of the gap, look in the corner to find the Kvasir’s Poems.

Where to Find Odin’s Raven in The Jungle

The Raven is sitting above the red chest in the area with the Ogres

You will likely get this Raven while doing the Trail of the Dead Favor, which is one of the sidequests you will do in The Jungle. After fixing the dam and gaining access to your boat, you will open the rest of The Jungle. One of the things you can do now is get rid of the one Ogre that was throwing boulders at you when you first entered this area, which is also where the Raven is located. To get there, start at the shore where the Jungle Entrance gateway is located, then sail east until you see a dock. Squeeze through the gap here, take care of the Ogres and Nokken, then look above the chest to find the Raven.
