The Stone Ancient is a large and slow opponent you will encounter. It will attack you by opening up its chest and sending forth a surge of magic to damage you – this will be an opportune moment for you to lodge the Leviathan Axe into its open chest for great damage.
Svartaljofurr isn't that much different from the other Elves you've fought thus far. He will try to rush you in an attempt to attack you, so be sure to be ready to parry/block. Make use of Atreus' bow attacks whenever he tries to dodge or block your own hits.

From the sealed blue door, head to the left and descend the stairs. You can find the Nornir Chest inside the room blocked by roots. Destroy the cores to open the door.
The N rune is above the chest, while the C rune is outside on the left of the room's entrance. Turn around and find the R rune near the stairway.
Hit the bells in this order: R rune, C, rune, and N rune to unlock the chest.
|Horn of Blood Mead|
You can find the Nornir Chest on the opposite side of the blue sealed door. You need to take the light crystal from the other room and place it on the pedestal to create a light bridge leading towards it.
The R rune is behind the chest, and the C rune is hanging through a broken window to the left. Head back to ledges and find the N rune near a rubble.
Position yourself so you can see both the C and R runes. Hit the C rune first and then the R rune. Press the Down Arrow on the D-Pad to turn around and hit the N rune to unlock the chest.
Before leaving Alfheim, head south of the Ringed Temple to find the Light Elf Sanctuary. Defeat the enemies and pass by the gate. Turn left to find the Nornir Chest inside a gazebo surrounded by hanging bells.
There are no visible runes on the hanging bells, so you need to hit the right bell based on the sound cue.
The correct bells are located at the left and right side of the chest. The last bell is located directly behind the chest.
