Odin’s eyes are everywhere in God of War Ragnarok. The All-Father Odin spies on the Nine Realms with ravens — creatures he has a unique affinity for. These creatures are his servants, able to traverse the realms and portal gods around at will. Lesser ravens are found in almost all the major areas, hidden around the scenery, just waiting to get destroyed by a well-aimed axe throw. And destroying the Ravens unlocks huge rewards.
Later in the story, Kratos will earn a Realm Seed for Nifleheim. This optional area has six Legendary Chests. As you destroy Ravens, you’ll earn the right to open more of these chests. The armor here is extremely useful, enhancing the effects of Healingstone — and later, giving Kratos a set of Chest Armor with a chance to generate a healing mist just from attacking enemies. That’s one set that is useful for the entire game.
But finding the ravens can be pretty tricky. Check out the list below with clues pointing you to all 48 locations. And if you fight them all, you’ll even unlock a unique post-game boss fight.

- Watchtower Key: Found in the underground chamber on the island. To reach it, use the metal wheel and freeze the gear on the lift. Next, return to the wooden beams on the cliffside and go right to reach the top. Ride the lift up and jump down onto the floor to smash through with the Blades of Chaos.
