How to break all Nornir Chest runes in The Applecore in God of War Ragnarok

The first Nornir Chest is close to the elevator where you come down. Progress through the caves, and a small airstream will come out of the rocks. You want to use a particular tool to reach this second area, and you can find the Nornir Chest shortly after.

To the left of the Nornir Chest, there will be two of the runes hanging in wooden pallets. You need to use the tool that got you up here on them. The third rune will be hidden but not too far from the Nornir Chest. Climb up the rocks to the right of the chest, and the rune will be hidden against the rocks to the left. After you hit them all with your tool, set them off, and you can unlock the chest.

The second Nornir Chest is deeper in the Applecore. You will need to work past where you rescued Tyr, and into where you are working through the puzzles. You can find the Nornir Chest past the area where there is a large pile of gold ore with a red explosive jar next to it. Bypass the ore, and there will be several Grim, Wretches, and a Bergsra on the other side. Dispatch them, and bypass the door.

An air stream will come out of the wood to your left. Use your spear to reach this location, unlocking a Mystic Gateway. The Nornir Chest will be to the right of the gateway.

The second one is to the right of the Nornir Chest, underneath the waterfall. Throw your Leviathan Axe at the water, and then use your tool on the rune.

The final Nornir Chest rune is further back, close to the Yggdrasil Portal, behind a large pile of gold ore. There is an explosive jar there that you can hit, exposing it and giving you access to all three runes to reach the final Nornir Chest in The Applecore.
