All Odin's Ravens locations - God of War Ragnarok
Where to find all of Odin's Ravens for the Eyes of Odin Favor in God of War Ragnarok.
Odin’s Ravens return in God of War Ragnarok. These spectral beings are the Allfather’s spies, so destroying them is a good. Finding all of these ravens is going to take some time, with several of them tucked away at the end of the game. However, completing the quest the Eyes of Odin yields unique rewards that will help you tackle other tough challenges.
Before you go any further, the following guide contains spoilers. There are rewards listed and endgame locations discussed. Only progress further if you have, at an absolute minimum, completed the quest Forging Destiny.

Locations of Odin’s ravens
There are 48 of Odin’s Ravens dotted throughout God of War Ragnarok. These can be quite difficult to spot unless you’re looking for them. However, there are some things to keep in mind to make it easier. These ravens are vibrant green, make a sparkling noise, and also caw – so listen out.
Every bunch of ravens you destroy will unlock a unique Legendary chest in Niflheim. You will need to destroy a set number of ravens to open each one:
- 6 ravens: Girdle of Raven Tears
- 12 ravens: Bracers of Raven Tears
- 18 ravens: Cuirass of Raven Tears
- 28 ravens: Breath of Thamur – Heavy Runic Attack
- 38 ravens: Tame the Beast – Heavy Runic Attack
- 48 ravens: The Finger of Ruin – Heavy Runic Attack
Once you have found and destroyed every single one of Odin’s Ravens in God of War Ragnarok, there is one additional quest step: defeating the Raven Keeper.

Svartalfheim – The Applecore
This raven is by the last door on the search for Tyr. It requires crossing a water and wheel puzzle where Atreus must be directed to spin a wheel that dumps ore into a channel. The raven is opposite the door, near a shimmy point on the wall.

This raven is found during the Favor, The Weight of Chains in Svartalfheim in the Bay of Bounty. To access it, free both of the creature’s fins and use the bomb to clear the debris around the swinging point to the north.

Svartalfheim – Alberich Island 2
The last raven for Alberich Island in Svartalfheim is found in the rocky island south of the main beach. It is first visible when using the boat to navigate the waters. To get it requires completing the main story chapter, Forging Destiny. Start on the beach, climb up the wall to the northeast, and follow the path up.

Vanaheim – The Jungle
Another raven can be found in Vanaheim, this time in the Jungle, an area to the south of the Plains. You can either try and kill it when you first arrive (and try to avoid getting hit by the ogre) or work your way through the area.
