  • When you reach the area, you can unlock a few Chest rewards like a Legendary Chest and a Nornir Chest, respectively.

You can trigger this Favor when you reach The Raven Tree area. Make sure to pay Niflheim a visit once you get through Ragnarok and it’s just Kratos, Mimir, and Freya cruising through the remaining realms in God of War.

The side quest is automatically triggered as soon as Mimir notices a newly-opened path to your left after arriving at The Raven Tree.

Explore the new path

  • Jump over the gap and explore the new path. There would be colorful streaks around when you run through the bridge.

The Broken Prison Favor 3

  • Surprisingly, this new bridge leads to the Aesir Prison Wreckage. When you reach the edge of the platform, go down until you reach the prison.

The Broken Prison Favor 4

Search the prison

  • The Broken Prison Favor typically revolves around the Aesir Prison Wreckage only. You should head inside the prison. However, beware of Einjerhar who survived Ragnarok! You have to deal with these Aesir warriors first before you can progress in the prison. Move right after clearing the area.

  • There should be a spot where you can throw a Draupnir Spear. Using the Spear in the wall, you can climb down by swinging your way to the lower level. Beware of Einjerhar forces when you reach the next level though!

The lower floor

  • Once you clear out the Einjerhar, there should be a chain that you can pull to lower the bar. You can use this to go down another floor. However, be mindful of your surroundings, a few enemies lurk around the prison still.

  • Do check a cell in the second lower level. It would be just behind you after lowering the chain. Interact with the gate, and when you open it, there should be a Dwarf corpse inside.

Find a broken room

  • On the same floor, you may want to find and head inside a broken room. It should be located in a corner of that second lower level. An Elf will attack Kratos so take care of the enemy before looking around the room.
  • Look up to see a spot of an unbreakable wall. Use Kratos’ Blades of Chaos to grapple and break the wall for your way up.

  • You should head back down once again. You’ll be needing that way later, so let’s keep going for this Broken Prison Favor.

Move to another lower level

  • With the use of your Draupnir Spear, find a wall crack once again on another bar. Head to the side of the first stuck Draupnir Spear to find a wall crack across. Use this to head to another lower level.

The Nornir Chest

  • You have to open the Nornir Chest, right? You can notice a seal on the prison cell’s window pane. However, there’s a Dark Elf imprisoned in it. Deal with the enemy first to continue The Broken Prison Favor. Break the seal and find the two more to unlock the Nornir.

Second seal

  • Once you break the first seal, you’d like to find the gate that would bring you to the main area. Beside it (before opening and entering), there should be a seal on its front on the left side.

Nornir Chest seal 2

The last seal

  • Easily, when you look in the middle of the area you’ve been jumping over per level, you’ll see the last. You can break the third and last seal placed in the middle of the lower level.

Nornir Chest seal 3

  • You can now open the Nornir Chest. Retrieve an Idunn Apple once you unlock the Chest!

The Legendary Chest

  • Once the last seal’s broken, head back up the prison. Pass thru the unlocked gate to reach the Spear. Make sure to adjust the Spears you use to jump from level to level and have both of them at the very top. This will be your way to get to the closed-off area where there is a Chest waiting to be opened.
  • Peek at the two bars at the top, you can swing your way up to reach the Legendary Chest. Retrieve the Accessory Nocked Proficiency from the Chest, and notice a Relic on its left side laid on the floor. Pick it up and receive a Motsognir’s Call.
