Aside from Legendary Chests and Odin’s Ravens, there are three artifacts found in the Lake of Nine at Midgard. Although these are purely optional for warriors to track down and collect, you will need these if you’re aiming for 100% completion for this area. 

You won’t need to scour every last inch of the place to collect all three artifacts. They will be found in the vicinity of each other, but you’ll need to keep an eye out for them. These three collectibles are all Stolen Treasures whose stories are linked to each other. Make sure to pay attention to the dialogue each time Kratos interacts with these items!

As for the second artifact in the Lake of Nine, all you have to do is move east. You won’t be able to get to this location on your sled, so you’ll have to leave your wolves behind. When you come across some ruins and stairs, that means you’re on the right track.

Walk up the stairs and you’ll see another corpse on the ground. Pick up the artifact near the lifeless body and you have the second artifact in this location for God of War: Ragnarok.

An added bonus to this location is if you’ve already finished the game and you rescued Tyr from his prison, you will find him here. But don’t expect the big guy to quickly jump into a conversation with Kratos.

3. Third Artifact – Maya

As for the final artifact in this location, it will also be nearby the previous collectibles. Make your way underneath the bridge of Tyr’s Temple and look for a rock you can climb. If you’re having trouble finding this location, recall the Raider Stronghold entrance during the Animal Instincts favor and you’ll be good to go!
