God of War Ragnarok: Muspelheim [Step-By-Step Guide]

This God of War Ragnarok Muspelheim guide will ensure that you are up to date on the Musepelheim Realm for that 100% completion.


Muspelheim In God of War Ragnarok is among the nine realms of the game’s universe, albeit small compared to others. You will first visit this place with Atreus alongside Thor. During this, you won’t be able to interact much with the environment, which will stop you from gaining any collectibles.

Key Takeaways

  • There are a total of nine realms in GOW Ragnarok, including Muspelheim.
  • Muspelheim contains a lot of challenges and collectibles necessary to complete multiple favors.
  • Completing all the challenges provides excellent rewards and a 100% completion rate.

For being such a small place, Muspelheim contains multiple collectibles to add to your inventory and challenges for you to face.

The Burning Cliffs

Starting off, we have the Burning Cliffs in Muspelheim, which, as the name suggests, are land filled with volcanic eruptions. If you are not cautious around here, you might slowly be drained of your HP from the lava. The Burning Cliffs are home to numerous objectives, so let’s dive deeper.

Legendary Chest

To access the legendary chest, run straight from the mystic gateway once you arrive. You will find your way broken. Thus, you will have to jump over the gap and grapple down the right-side cliff. Once you grapple down, keep right from the gap until you spot a cave. Make your way inside, and you will find a Legendary Chest.

Odin’s Ravens

Odin Ravens are found throughout the various areas of the game. You have to slay these ravens to the Eye of Odin achievement and unlock the chest at the Raven Tree. There are a total of 48 ravens in total, one of which can be found here. If you look right of the chest, you can spot a raven chilling on top of a rock in a puddle of lava. You will have to kill it with your axe or blades,

Nornir Chest

In Muspelheim, discover a Nornir Chest beside the legendary chest. Locate a gap to the left and traverse through it, moving left and crossing a ledge beneath a lava fall. Pierce a weak spot on the right to reveal the Nornir chest. Find the runes to unlock it.

The first rune brazier is up on the right side of the chest. Face the chest to spot the other two runes. Use blades and a charged sigil to retrieve them. Launch the sigil between the runes to stack them, indicated by a pink glow. Move to the left of the runes to add two more stacks, unlocking the chest to claim an Idunn Apple as the reward.

Remnants of Asgard

The Remnants of Asgard can be found in Muspelheim as well. Once you have completed the main storyline, make your way to the Burning Cliffs. You will be able to spot it in the middle of the cliff inside that arena. If you can’t find the arena, it’s beside the Nornir Chest.


Once you get the Remnants of Asgard, look around you. You will be able to spot some glowing runes to the left of the temple’s entrance. Interacting with them will provide you with the Valhalla Rises Rune Read.

Surtr’s Forge

Surtr’s Forge is another central point in Muspelheim that contains one collectible for you.

Odin’s Ravens 

You can find another of Odin’s ravens here. All you have to do is follow the steps mentioned. Take the zip line to the Surtr’s Forge and make your way to the top of the ramp. This will take you to the place where you initially met him. Once there, look around the ruins. You will be able to see a raven perched somewhere that you will have to slay.

The Crucible

The Crucible is the next main area, God of War Ragnarok Muspelheim. It is on the left side of Muspelheim. This area contains several objectives and the infamous crucible trials.

Nine Realms in Bloom

Firstly, you can access a part of the Nine Realms in Bloom quest. For that, make your way to the ledge in front of the mystic gateway and jump down. Take a right from Brok’s Shop and continue forward. You will find the Ashepetal there, which is necessary to complete the Nine Realms in Bloom quest.

Nornir Chests

Crucible Challenges in God of War Ragnarok
Weapon Mastery Challenge

You can find the Nornir Chest in the pit of the Brok’s Shop. As usual, the chest will require you to unlock the runes. To do that, you will have to complete the infamous Crcucible Trials. There are six crucible challenges in total. Completing two opens one rune.

The six trials are as follows:

  • Weapon Mastery
  • Flawless
  • Ring Out
  • Feed The Rift
  • Population Control
  • King of the Hill

Completing these trials will unlock the chest and reward you with a Chaos Flame.

Crucible Challenges 

To unlock the Final Challenges, complete the initial six trials and the specific trials in a particular order, indicated by glowing runes on the floor near the central Crucible blade hilt. Match the runes to corresponding rooms and complete the trials in the order indicated by the activated runes.

For example, if runes H and R are visible, start with the H room. Complete three challenges within each designated room, then interact with the hilt in the main area to begin the Final challenge.

The Final Challenge has nine challenges for you to complete, and they are as follows:

  • Rampage Challenge
  • Health Steal Challenge
  • Kill Fuse Challenge
  • Phantom Challenge
  • Endurance Challenge
  • Boss Rush Challenge
  • Shield Breaker Challenge
  • Ring of Fire Challenge
  • Onslaught Challenge

Defend Your Valor

Once you have completed all the crucibles challenges, head back to the arena in front of Brok’s shop. You can spot a new crawl space on the right which will also be highlighted with a question mark on the map. Make your way through the gap and grapple forward to initiate a boss fight. You will face off against the Gna, the Valkyrie, as part of the Defend Your Valor favor. She can be a tricky opponent to defeat, so stay on your toes.

Even though it might be hard, defeating her is pretty rewarding. You get the Queen’s Armor for Freya, the Rond of Obliteration, and The Queen’s Roar Runic Summon as rewards for slaying her.


These are the collectibles and challenges that you can do in God of War Ragnarok Muspelheim. All of these must be fulfilled if you are aiming for that 100% completion rate. Moreover, this will make you one step closer to a strong build.
