Boss Strategy: Stone Ancient

GoW The Light of Alfheim - Stone Ancient.png

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.

Boss Strategy: Svartaljofurr

GoW The Light of Alfheim - Svartaljofurr.png

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.

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.
