God of War Ragnarok: Conscience for the Dead Walkthrough
If you haven't picked up the Favour named Conscience for the Dead yet, you'll want to follow the steps outlined in The Mysterious Orb. As you progress that Favour, you'll discover the Cliffside Ruins, where you'll be called upon by a character named Gunhild. Speak to her to begin Conscience of the Dead. Dock your boat in The Veiled Passage in Vanaheim, a little further up from where you found the aforementioned Mysterious Orb. There's a red chest opposite the dock with Lunda's Broken Bracers inside, so be sure to collect those. There's also one of Odin's Ravens, squatted on the roof of this area, just behind where you got out of your boat. You can also use Sigil Arrows in combination with your Leviathan Axe to freeze a poisonous plant and collect the yellow chest in this area. There's Hacksilver inside. Once you're done, break through the wooden barrier to the left of where you disembarked.
There are loads of poisonous plants down here, so make sure you take care of those before you move, for obvious reasons. Climb up the wall and knock off the crest immediately on the left so you have an easier route back up here. You'll find the first Seidr immediately to the right, so take care of them. Then follow the path further up, taking care to avoid any more poisonous plants along the path. There are more Seidr along the way, so push forwards until you reach a ledge you can jump across. On the other side is the last Seidr, who's armed with a shield, so take care of him to defeat them all.
Freeze the poisonous plant to pass through the fog, and climb down the chain on the other side. You can lower the drawbridge to the Cliffside Ruins by pulling the chain here, but beware as you'll be ambushed by enemies, including Nightmares, almost immediately. Before you continue on, be sure to collect the Lore in the form of the Lore Marker named Call to Arms just to the right of where you got off the chain. There's also a yellow chest with Hacksilver inside. Once you're done, cross the drawbridge and speak to Gunhild. This will complete Conscience for the Dead and unlock an Enchantment named Svartalfheim's Honour.
