Lore #1 - Prayer to Freya
Category: Rune Reads.
You can find the secret just after you reach the Abandoned Village for the first time. These are blue runes on the wall of the main building.
Legendary Chest #1
Reward: Shatter Star Shield - this is a unique shield that gives Kratos the ability to hit enemies and throw them off balance (L1 x2)
Explore the area north of the main village building. You can set the blackberries on fire with the Blades of Chaos in the area shown in the screenshot and use the revealed chain to climb up.
Unfortunately, the chest is surrounded by poisonous mist. Throw the Leviathan Axe at the plant on the right to temporarily clear the air from poisonous fumes.
Legendary Chest #2
Reward: Helios Flare - this is a light runic attack for Blades of Chaos.
To find the secret, follow the path in the western part of the village (the path you took to reach Nidhogg's lair).
Get to the point where you can use the Axe on shields to rotate the crane.
Rotate the crane until you can grab its handle and use it to reach the shelf with the legendary chest.
You can easily reach this and several other collectibles described below after finishing the storyline - unlock the Mystic Gateway of the Abandoned Village (shown in the picture).
Use the spear - drive it into the hole and create a rod. By grabbing onto the spear, you will reach Draugr Hole. Defeat all the monsters.
Lore #2 - Chores
The scroll lies on the ground in the camp, near the crane that can be rotated.
Legendary Chest #3
Reward: Rond of Restoration - a Shield Attachment.
The Legendary Chest is on the floor of one of the huts in the village. We have shown the place in the picture, but you can't use the Blades to pull yourself right away.
Locate the small hole in the area shown in the picture.
After squeezing through, you will reach a rocky ledge from which you can jump into the hut.
Reward: Idunn Apple
The chest is located next to a destroyed bridge. In the main storyline, you had to get here to solve the puzzle of unlocking the crane and getting to the other side of the bridge.
To open the chest, you must set 3 torches on fire. Each one requires you to form several seals side by side, and then ignite the nearest seal with the Blades to create a chain reaction. Use the crane to move around (you can rotate it). The picture shows a more hidden torch - you must correctly form the seals next to it.
Raven hides inside a large tree in the village. It is sitting on the statue in the tree shown in the picture.
