The kingdom of Muspelheim was a source of some of the best gear in the 2018 reboot of God of Warand the same happens in God of War: Ragnarok. Getting to her this time is a bit more complicated, since you need two Muspelheim Yggdrasil seeds to unlock access to the volcanic bonfire. You go there as part of the main campaign, but the seeds provide access to the area’s challenges, and therefore the powerful gear on offer.
You won’t need much to get the first Muspelheim seed, but the second piece of seed is locked behind nearly a dozen hours of campaign progress. It is also not difficult to reach, since both are in Svartalfheim. You only need a specific item to reach one of them and the equipment to pass the few enemies that protect it.
First Muspelheim Seed Location
Shortly after gaining access to a boat and Bounty Bay, you’ll want to head to the western side of the Bay, where you’ll find Modvitnir’s Rig.
The area is part of the “In Service to Asgard” Favor, but you will get the Seed long before the quest objective. From the beach, go up to the first platform and follow the path to the right.
Jump down the gap and go up to the platform with the legendary chest. The Chest has the first Muspelheim Seed inside.
Second Muspelheim Seed Location
You will not be able to get the second Muspelheim seed until you have Spear of Draupnir, which you don’t get until the end of Chapter 6, Forging Fate. Spear in hand, return to Svartalfheim and go to the northern section of the bay, then head to its eastern end. There you will find Dragon Beach.
At the northern edge of the beach is a chain leading to a higher platform with a spear slot at the back.
Place the spear, go up and follow the path to the giant statue. Clear the monsters that get in your way and you will eventually come across another legendary chest.
Open it for the second Muspelheim Seed.
With both Seeds in hand, return to any Mystic Gateway, select Muspelheim and unlock The Crucible. You will now be able to take on Crucible Challenges and complete the Favor of the same name. Prepare yourself for the complicated trials of combat that require skill, timing and sometimes a little luck.
