God of War Ragnarok The Sinkholes is one of the three large open regions in The Crater area as part of the Vanaheim Realm, which holds numerous treasures for you to find.
But, to obtain all of GoW Ragnarok The Sinkholes collectibles, it is recommended to complete The Jungle region we’ve covered here.
While completing The Jungle region, you will make the river flow again in all of The Crater regions, allowing you to explore everything and find the following Sinkholes collectibles:
- 2 Nornir Chests
- 1 Lore
- 1 Artifact
- 1 Nine Realms in Bloom
- 1 Odin’s Raven
- 1 Berserker Gravestone
- 2 Dragon Hunts
- 1 Casualty of War
- 1 Seasonal Stag
To reach The Sinkholes region, obtain all The Jungle collectibles, fast travel to the Crater Entrance Mystic Gateway, climb the ledge on the right, drop down and follow the path east (right) through the stone circles until you reach a zip-line.
Slide down the rope to discover The Sinkholes hidden region in the Crater area.
Now, follow this guide to learn where to find all The Sinkholes collectibles in the action video game developed by Santa Monica Studios for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
Nornir Chest 1: In A Cave
After sliding down the rope and discovering The Sinkholes hidden region, follow the path west into a small cave with the Nornir Chest.
Also, you will automatically start the Quaking Hollow Favour we’ve covered here after you enter the cave.
To open this GoW Ragnarok Sinkholes Nornir Chest, you’ll have to ignite three seal braziers using the Blades of Chaos and sigil arrows.
The first brazier is to the right of the Nornir Chest, above a small pond. Place a large sigil on the wall and detonate with your Blades of Chaos to ignite it.
To create a large sigil, shoot up to three sigil arrows in the same place to increase the effective radius.
The second brazier is on the left of the Nornir Chest on the cliffside. Place large connected sigils along the cliffside and detonate the closer one to create a chain reaction that will ignite the brazier.
For the final brazier, climb the wall to the right of the first brazier, go up the small path and look up above the cave entrance to find it.
As before, place large sigils along the wall to create a chain reaction that will ignite the brazier.
After igniting all three braziers, return to the Nornir Chest and open it to receive an Idunn Apple or a Horn of Blood Mead.

Lore Marker (Everything Ends): Near Cave Entrance
From the Nornir Chest, return to where you landed at the end of the rope slide and enter the cave on the right.
Freeze the poisonous plant with your axe to jump across, then look near the cave entrance on the right to find God of War Ragnarok Sinkholes Lore Marker.

Seasonal Stag: Near The Sinkholes Entrance Mystic Gateway
From the previous Lore collectible, turn around, and use the grappling point to swing across the river.
To the left of the Mystic Gateway, you’ll find the GoW Ragnarok Sinkholes Seasonal Stag as part of the A Stag for All Seasons Favour we’ve covered here.
To interact with the Seasonal Stag, you need a special item from the Ratatosrkr, the Squirrel at Sindri’s House.
If you don’t see the interaction button when you get close to it, return to Sindri’s House using the nearby Mystic Gateway, speak with Ratatoskr and pick up the feed off the table.
Then, return to Seasonal Stag and interact with it to progress the favor and unlock the collectible in the region overview.
Casualties Of War The Hourglass 1 (Favour Item):
Now, climb the wall near the Mystic Gateway, and destroy the yellow glowing rock using the Draupnir Spear to clear the path leading to a Dragon encounter.
To get rid of the Dragon, you’ll have to blow up the two stone pillars it sits on using the Draupnir Spear. Look for the glowing yellow spots.
After the Dragon flies away, you will automatically start The Burning Skies Favour we’ve covered here, which is one of The Sinkholes Dragon Hunt collectibles.
Now, go to the right (southwest), pull down the chains to lower the gate on the river, and follow the path ahead.
After burning the red vines and freezing the poisonous plant, squeeze through the gap and pick up the glowing purple item on the ground under the ghost to initiate the Casualty of War: The Hourglass Favour we’ve covered here.
Dragon Hunt 1 (Quaking Hollow Favour): In An Arena
After picking up the previous favor item, climb up the stairs, burn the red vines on the ceiling using large sigils, and use the grappling point to swing across the gap.
Then, drop down into the hole ahead and crouch through the narrow tunnel to start the boss fight against the Crag Jaw.
Defeating the boss will complete the Quaking Hollow Favour mentioned above, which will count as one of the two God of War Ragnarok Sinkholes Dragon Hunt collectibles.
Artifact (Eastern Spectre – Kvasir’s Poems Set): Near A Corpse
Go to the west corner of the arena, burn the red vines, and squeeze through the gap.
At the top of the stairs ahead, you’ll find one of the 38 Artefact Collectibles listed here glowing purple near a corpse.
Berserker Gravestone (Chaos Flame): Middle Of An Arena
After picking up the previous Artefact, return to the arena where you fought the Dragon and climb the wall to the east, then lift the gate ahead to return to the area where you collected the Lore Marker and Seasonal Stag.
Get in the boat and sail to the right (southwest) to reach the area where you got rid of the flying Dragon sitting on the stone pillars.
Dock your boat on the right side, then go to the middle of the arena to find the God of War Ragnarok Sinkholes Berserker Gravestone.
Defeat Haklangr The Bearded boss to receive a Chaos Flame and to progress the Fit For A King Favour we’ve covered here. At least Gear Level 7 is recommended and set to the lowest difficulty.
Nine Realms In Bloom (Starblush Flower): On The Side Of The River
After clearing the Berserker Gravestone, go to the west-southwest of the arena on the riverside to find the GoW Ragnarok Sinkholes Nine Realms in Bloom collectible.
Starblush is one of the nine flowers necessary to complete the Nine Realms In Bloom Favour we’ve covered here.
Odin’s Raven: On A Cliffside
From the previous Nine Realms in Bloom collectible, head northeast to pull the chains and lower the other gate blocking the river.
Get back in the boat and sail to the right (northeast) until you reach a small beach on the left side of the river.
After docking the boat, turn your camera southeast to find the God of War Ragnarok Sinkholes Odin’s Raven perched on the cliffside.
To kill this Odin’s Raven, aim high above the raven using the Draupnir Spear. Adjust your aim up and down after each throw until you hit it.
Killing Odin’s Ravens will progress The Eyes Of Odin Favour we’ve covered here, which is mandatory to complete if you want to achieve 100% game completion.
Casualty Of War The Hourglass 2 (Favour Item): In A Cave
After killing Odin’s Raven, lift the gate behind you, deal with the enemies and blow up the pile of rocks to the right by placing three spears in each glowing yellow spot and detonating them simultaneously.
Follow the path to the end, climb the ledge on the right and hide from the Dragon’s breath on the left side of the tunnel, then blow up the glowing yellow wall on the right with the spear.
Doing so will reveal a glowing purple item on the ground as part of the Casualty of War The Hourglass Favour we mentioned earlier.
Pick up the item to complete the favour and make it count toward the GoW Ragnarok Sinkholes Casualties of War collectibles in the region overview.
Nornir Chest 2: Near An Arena
After you pick up the favour item, climb the wall on the right to reach the outside, where you will find the God of War Ragnarok Sinkholes Nornir Chest.
To open this Nornir Chest, you’ll have to place a spear in all three seal totems and blow them simultaneously.
The first seal totem is to the left of the cave you climbed up earlier, on the cliffside. Go near the cave, look to the north-northeast and place a spear into the seal totem.
The second seal totem is to the right of the Nornir Chest, on top of a stone pillar. Check the image below for the exact location.
The third and final seal totem is to the left of the Nornir Chest, on the side of a larger stone pillar, similar to the one you destroyed during the Dragon encounter.
After placing a spear in each seal totem, detonate them simultaneously by pressing (Triangle). Then, open the Nornir Chest to receive a Horn of Blood Mead or an Idunn Apple.
Dragon Hunt 2 (The Burning Skies Favour): In An Arena
From the previous Nornir Chest, climb the stone pillar where you’ve seen the third totem to reach an arena and start the boss fight against The Ash Tyrant.
During the fight against the Dragon, you’ll have to blow up the two large stone pillars around the arena using the Draupnir Spear.
After you defeat the Dragon, you’ll complete The Burning Skies Favour we mentioned earlier and unlock the last God of War Ragnarok Sinkholes Dragon Hunt collectible in the region overview.
