God of War Ragnarok Svartalfheim: Definitive Guide
Svartalfheim is one of the 9 realms of the world tree. I will tell you information about the realm without spoilers in this article.

Unlike Midgard, Svartalfheim is beautiful, warm, colorful, and covered in magnificent waters all over the land. The infrastructure of the cities shows that the Dwarves put in the effort to build the realm and keep it protected and unique from the others. The result is the pure resources they produce, such as Svartalfheim Steel.
There are 9 Realms in the World Tree. Svartalfheim, being one of those locations, is the realm of Dwarves. It is also known as Nidavellir.
For the quest: Retrieve Mimir and travel to Svartalfheim, you must travel to Svartalfheim.
Brock and Sindri have created seeds to access realms due to the Bifrost being out of order. Traveling to these realms is a part of the game’s story, and Svartalfheim is the only one accessible, depending on your storyline progress.
Sindri will take you to the gate and tell you the following:
Aim your key at the rune of Svartalfheim
Press X to travel to the realm
The gate will take you to the Wetlands outside of Nidavellir, and there, you will see another gate that’ll take you to another quest.
Locations In Svartalfheim

I have compiled a list of all the locations where you will find lore on your journey through this realm:
Demise of Degestr
I won’t go into details about these locations, as potential spoilers could ruin your experience if you are a new player.
After getting to know more about Mimir’s past and meeting him, Kratos and Atreus reach large mountains with mines, known as the “Jarnsmida Pitmines.”

Lastly, as the quest’s name suggests, we must meet the chained Tyr. We must convince the Norse God of war to come with us to get further into the game.
Quests And Additional Information
Five quests are part of Svartalfheim’s main quest.
The game features over 60 bosses, 6 of which you’ll face in Svartalfheim. In this realm, you’ll also face one of the most challenging bosses, i.e., Miklimunnr. You can check out our article on Hardest Bosses in GOW Ragnarok to get help defeating these bosses.
Besides the beasts in God of War Ragnarok, Svartalfheim has several collectibles waiting for you to discover. There are 89 collectibles in the realm of Svartalfheim, including Odin’s ravens, Nornir Chests, Hel Tear, Legendary Chests, favors, artifacts, and lore markers.
My Thoughts On Svartalfheim
It is a completely unique location with tons of exploration for your playthrough. While there are a lot of details to discuss, I dare not to as it may spoil your experience. But for those who have already completed the realm they might back up all the collectibles and the boss fight experience it has to offer.
