Bloated But Beautiful: SPOILER-FREE GOD OF WAR RAGNAROK REVIEW!

God of War Ragnarök Odin's Ravens locations and rewards explained

There are 48 of Odin's Ravens to find throughout the Realms in God of War Ragnarök, with a total of six rewards available from chests found in the Niflheim Realm.

Odin's Ravens differ from the other birds found across the Realms as they are green and translucent. This can make them easier to see at times, but when they're flying or perched with the sky as a backdrop, the light can actually make them tougher to spot.

Look out for green translucents birds - these are Odin's Ravens.

When you find one of Odin's Ravens, you need to destroy it with one of your weapons (usually your Leviathan Axe) for it to count towards getting the 'Eyes of Odin' Favour rewards.

Once you've destroyed enough of them, return to the Raven Tree in Niflheim to open up the unlocked chests to get some well earned rewards and a creepy rhyming story from your Raven friends.

The chest will tell you how many Ravens you need to locate to open it.

God of War Ragnarök 'Eyes of Odin' Favour rewards

The first three chests you'll open as part of the 'Eyes of Odin' Favour in God of War Ragnarök contain special armour pieces, with the other three giving you a Heavy Runic Attack for each weapon.

Here's every 'Eyes of Odin' reward and how to get them:

Odin's Ravens located 'The Eyes of Odin' Reward
6 Ravens Girdle of Raven Tears Armour
12 Ravens Bracers of Raven Tears Armour
18 Ravens Cuirass of Raven Tears Armour
28 Ravens Breath of Thamur Heavy Runic Attack
38 Ravens Meteoric Slam Heavy Runic Attack
48 Ravens The Finger of Ruin Heavy Runic Attack

The Raven Tears Armour set is a particularly useful reward, as it can assist in healing Kratos, and doesn't take too long to get, making it a great choice if you're struggling with some of the boss and sub-boss fights in the middle and late game.

Here's what the full set of the Raven Tears Armour looks like.

Once you open all six chests, you'll have to defeat a boss in the training area of Niflheim, across from the shop, in order to complete the 'Eyes of Odin' Favour.

God of War Ragnarök Svartalfheim Odin's Ravens locations explained

There are 13 of Odin's Ravens to find in Svartalfheim, with nine available to find on your first trip to the dwarven Realm, but you'll have to wait until you get a special tool as part of the main story before you can return and collect the remaining four.

Here's where to find all Ravens in Svartalfheim:

Svartalfheim Aurvangar Wetlands Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

As soon as you step out of the Aurvangar Wetlands Mystic Gate, look up and to the left to spot Odin's Raven perched on top of the small rock formation.

Svartalfheim Nidavellir Odin's Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

The Nidavellir Raven is found perched on top of a building opposite the statue in the main square of Nidavellir, where Kratos and Atreus first arrived at the village in the story. You'll have to go back through the crawlspace you unearthed by using Sonic Arrows to get back here.

Svartalfheim Althjof's Rig Odin's Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

The Althjof's Rig Raven is located near a barrel facing Kratos when he climbs up the golden chain to gain access to the rig.

Svartalfheim The Watchtower Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

The Watchtower Raven is found flying around in a circle above the area where the dwarven shop is located. It's right beside where you battle one of The Hateful.

Svartalfheim Radsvinn's Rig Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

Before climbing onto the main rig itself, look up and to the left at the crane above you. The Raven is perched inside the hook of the crane.

Svartalfheim Lyngbakr Island Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

You'll come to this area and find the Lyngbakr Island Raven as part of 'The Weight of Chains' Favour. Odin's Raven is located in the second area, accessible by boat after you free one of the fins.

When you come to it, open the gate that leads back to the first area and bring one of the Fire Bombs round to the area covered in debris and clear it with the bomb. Jump across once you do this and crawl in the space to the right of the red chest.

Turn left when you exit this small crawl space and you'll see the Raven hopping about.

Svartalfheim The Forge Raven location 1 in God of War Ragnarök

You'll first come across Odin's Raven in The Forge after riding the cart with Atreus after speaking with Diluc. Don't worry if you missed it, though, as you can use a Mystic Gateway to get back to The Forge later.

The Raven is easily spotted flying in a circle if you face the large carving of a dwarf in the mountain from the wooden walkway.

The second of Odin's Ravens in The Forge is not available to get until you return to Svartalfheim again during the story.

Svartalfheim The Applecore Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

The Applecore Raven is located after solving the puzzle involving the water wheels and Sonic Arrows, right before the door that leads to a red chest and a crawl space. If returning to the area, you'll have to come from the bottom of The Applecore, not the Jarnsmida Pitmines.

Odin's Raven is perched on the rafters to the left of the door, by the rope zipline.

Svartalfheim Jarnsmida Pitmines Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

You'll first come across the Jarnsmida Pitmines Raven after crashing the cart into the area with Atreus in the story, but can return at any time via a Mystic Gateway if you missed it the first time.

The Raven is located by sliding down the golden chain that leads to a chest, one of the 'Things Left Behind' Artefacts, and branches covered in a red mushroom-like material. Look across the water to find this Raven flying in a circle.

That's it for all the Ravens you can find before returning to Svartalfheim as part of the story. Don't read any further until you get to this point if you don't want to see spoilers in the descriptions and pictures!

Svartalfheim The Forge Raven location 2 in God of War Ragnarök

This Raven is only accessible after travelling to the top of The Forge area with Brok as part of the story. It’s the place with the large bell in the middle.

You’ll see the Raven perched on the side of the mountain, just above the golden chain you use to get down to the main area with the large bell.

Svartalfheim Alberich Hollow Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

You can only get the Raven in Alberich Hollow after acquiring the weapon from The Forge in Svartalfheim with Brok, because you can only access the area by using this weapon to climb Radsvinn’s Rig.

Once you do have this weapon, use it to go up the rig, take a left, then go forward and take a left by the large statue of the dwarf. You’ll see the Raven perched to your left once you clear the debris just past the Legendary Chest containing the second Muspelheim Seed.

Svartalfheim Alberich Island Raven location 1 in God of War Ragnarök

You can only access this Raven’s location after acquiring the weapon from The Forge in Svartalfheim with Brok as part of the story. Once you do, use it to the left of the Nornir Chest on the island to climb up.

You’ll find the son’s spirit as part of the 'Lost Treasure' Favour to your left, but if you go up and left you’ll see some debris you can clear with a Sonic Arrow - the Raven flying in a circle behind this debris.

Svartalfheim Alberich Island Raven location 2 in God of War Ragnarök

Following the path after getting the first Raven in Alberich Island, this second one is located in a gap between the rocks across the water from one of the Lost Lindwyrm locations, just to the right of where the ‘Washed Ashore’ Treasure Map is.

God of War Ragnarök Alfheim Odin's Ravens locations explained

There are 10 of Odin's Ravens to find in Alfheim, with six available to find on your first trip to the elven Realm, but you'll have to wait until you get a special tool as part of the main story before you can return and collect the rest.

Here's where to find all of Odin's Ravens in Alfheim:

Alfheim The Strond Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

The Strond Raven is found perched on a tree on the path towards the Temple of Light, just after the first Strond Nornir Chest, and just before you encountered the purple Twilight Stone for the first time.

Alfheim Temple of Light Raven location 1 in God of War Ragnarök

The first Temple of Light Raven is found behind a metal gate by some Purple Twilight Stone accessed by jumping down the end ledge of the spiral staircase, before the door that leads to the white marble Legendary Chest.

As the Raven is trapped behind a gate, you need to throw your axe at the Purple Twilight stone outside of it, so the axe bounces off the stone inside the gate and hits the Raven.

Alfheim Temple of Light Raven location 2 in God of War Ragnarök

This second Temple of Light Raven is found in the room before encountering the Temple of Light Nornir Chest. It's perched on a platform across from the stairs, at the far end of the room, just before the door that leads to the next area.

Alfheim The Canyons Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

Once you complete the 'Groa's Secret' part of The Path main story, you'll gain access to The Canyon that leads to The Barrens desert in Alfheim.

Odin's Raven in The Canyon is located to the right of the dwarven shop. It's not perched, so you'll have to try and get as close as possible to it as it flies in a circle to try and hit it accurately.

Alfheim The Barrens Raven location 1 in God of War Ragnarök

There are two of Odin's Ravens to find in The Barrens of Alfheim, with the first perched on a tree to the west of the desert, near the small structure containing a Legendary Chest and Lore Marker.

Alfheim The Forbidden Sands Raven location 2 in God of War Ragnarök

The second Raven in The Forbidden Sands is found flying in a circle in front of Freyrs statue, to the west of The Burrows.

Alfheim The Forbidden Sands Raven location 3 in God of War Ragnarök

This Forbidden Sands Raven is perched on top of the large rock formation where you fight a Frost Phantom. It's on the right-hand side of the structure, and you'll have to aim far above the Raven to get the axe to reach it.

Alfheim The Forbidden Sands Raven location 4 in God of War Ragnarök

The last Raven in Alfheim is one of the hardest to find in God of War Ragnarök, as you need to destroy the rubble under the outside entrance to the elven library first to unearth a crawlspace and locate it.

You'll find the Raven flying around the left-hand side after entering the crawlspace.

God of War Ragnarök Vanaheim Odin's Ravens locations explained

There are 15 of Odin's Ravens to find in Vanaheim, with six available to find on your first trip to the Vanir Realm, but you'll have to wait until you return to Vanaheim as part of the story to access the other nine locations.

Vanaheim The Abandoned Village Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

The Abandoned Village Raven is perched on top of a statue inside a tree knot, found by exploring the main circular building where you can swing to multiple levels.

It's on the top level, to the right after entering through the crack in the wall.

Vanaheim River Delta Raven location 1 in God of War Ragnarök

The first River Delta Raven is found perched to the left of the Legendary Chest in the Pilgrim's Landing area, but you'll need to solve the environmental puzzle involving the red bramble and Sigil Arrows first to gain access to the platform with the Legendary Chest.

Vanaheim The Veiled Passage Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

The Veiled Passage Raven is located near the top of the area, perched beside some skeletons hanging from the roof.

Vanaheim River Delta Raven location 2 in God of War Ragnarök

The second Raven on the River Delta is perched on top of a tree root above the river. To hit it, you have to find a way across the raised bridge by ascending the Veiled Passage and taking the golden chain down. You'll see the Raven down from the lore marker.

Vanaheim Goddess Falls Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

The Goddess Falls Raven is found flying around in a circle near the triple waterfall where you dock the boat, Climb up to one of the ledges above to get a better shot at the Raven.

That's it for the first batch of Ravens in Vanaheim, so don't read any further in this section until you return to Vanaheim as part of the story - or you'll see spoilers in the pictures and text!

Vanaheim Eastern Barri Woods Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

You can only get this Raven after revisiting Vanaheim as part of the story, which doesn't happen until quite late in the game.

The Raven is perched inside the knot of a tree, down the short path from the Nornir Chest up the spiral stairs.

Vanaheim Freyrs Camp Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

The area name is a little misleading, as the Raven at Freyrs Camp isn't actually close to the camp itself, but north of it, through the doors on the right-hand side of the actual Freyrs campsite and shop area.

You might be able to find it in the day too, but we found the Raven at night, perched on a small tree above a pond by a large blue circle structure. The path is on the left-hand side after exiting the crawlspace that leads to this area.

Vanaheim The Jungle Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

Vanaheim The Plains Raven location 1 in God of War Ragnarök

Once you restore water to the crater by completing the 'Return of the River' Favour in The Jungle Area of the crater in Vanaheim, you can get this Plains Raven by taking the boat to the left at the entrance to The Jungle. Jump down to the area after docking the boat and kill the Dreki before trying to get the Raven on the other side of the gap.

Vanaheim The Plains Raven location 2 in God of War Ragnarök

This second Plains Raven in the crater area of Vanaheim is located down a small gap in the northeastern area of The Plains. In the area just down and northwest of the Mystic Gateway.

The Raven is perched inside the gap, which is to the right of the crack in the cliff that you can crawl through.

Vanaheim The Plains Raven location 3 in God of War Ragnarök

The third Plains Raven located in the northwestern area of The Plains in the carter of Vanaheim, opposite the poisoned gate that leads to a Nornir Chest.

Vanaheim The Plains Raven location 4 in God of War Ragnarök

The last Plains Raven in the crater area of Vanaheim is easily spotted if looking at the chest of forgotten materials across from the shop in the eastern area of The Plains.

Vanaheim The Sinkholes Raven location in God of War Ragnarök

Once you've completed the 'Return of the River' Favour picked up in The Jungle area of the crater in Vanaheim, you can take a boat down the path to the left of the Mystic Gate by the Berserker Gravestone in The Sinkholes.

At the end of this river, dock the boat and turn around to see the Raven perched on the cliffside opposite, to the left of the chain that opens up an alternate route out of this area.

There are six of Odin's Ravens to find in Midgard, with all six available from the very first time you can explore Midgard as Kratos.

Here's where to find all six Ravens in Midgard:

Midgard The Derelict Outpost Raven location 1 in God of War Ragnarök

The first Raven the The Derelict Outpost is perched above a dead body in the nook to your left after entering the area. If you see the golden chain that leads to the shop, you've gone too far.

Midgard The Derelict Outpost Raven location 2 in God of War Ragnarök

This Raven at The Derelict Outpost in Midgard is located just past the shop in the area, over the first swinging jump. It's perched to the right, on a small wooden column with a swinging mechanism below it. You'll have to throw the axe a good bit above the Raven to hit it.

Midgard Lake of Nine Raven location 1 in God of War Ragnarök

This Lake of Nine Raven is inside the small ice cavern hugging the southern side of Tyr's Temple in the middle.

Midgard Lake of Nine Raven location 2 in God of War Ragnarök

This Raven is perched above the large chain covered in snow just outside the entrance to the Raider Hideout in the eastern area of Midgard.

Midgard Well of Urd Raven location in God of War Ragnarök
