Chilling Mists of Niflheim is a rare item in God of War. It can be used to buy the last Frozen Flame from Sindri and Brok, which is necessary if you want to upgrade the Leviathan Axe all the way through. When you do, you’ll get the Worthy trophy. We know of only one way to obtain this item, and we suspect a lot of players are going to have trouble getting it. That’s why we’ve written this God of War Chilling Mists of Niflheim guide, to help you max out your axe.
Where to find Chilling Mists of Niflheim?
You’ve probably guessed it already, but the item can be obtained in Niflheim, the realm of fog. When you arrive there for the first time, Sindri will explain the situation and give you a task. The whole area is overrun by cursed mist, and you’ll have to complete a bunch of challenges in order to remove it and access Ivaldi’s workshop. While you’re completing those challenges, you’ll earn Mist Echoes, a currency unique to the area.
The echoes are used to open golden chests hidden around the workshop. We got the Chilling Mists of Niflheim from the last golden chest we opened, which lead us to believe you’ll actually have to open them all. A lot of people are saying the one that costs 5000 will drop it, so try that one first. In order to earn enough echoes to do this, you’ll have to clear out the map of all activities – which includes quests Sindri will give you, defeating a Valkyrie and closing realm tears.
The challenges you’ll face here are different from the ones in Muspelheim. One of them, for example, requires you to deal with some enemies without getting hit. You’ll also have to keep your eyes on the timer at the top of the screen, because staying in the cursed mist for too long will kill you.
