God of War Ragnarok: Cure for the Dead Walkthrough
In Vanaheim, dock at Pilgrim's Landing, which is just north of the Cliffside Ruins. There's a Berserker Gravestone here, but look beyond it for a spirit you can speak to, next to the wall. You'll need to find three items: Mangold, Mire, and Pome.
First climb up the ledge directly opposite the aforementioned Berserker Gravestone, and use Sigil Arrows to burn away the plants. Then toss your Leviathan Axe at the two plates to drop the drawbridge down. Directly ahead is one of the ingredients, so pick it up and head left.
There are a couple of Nokkens up here that you'll need to take care of before you can kill the Reavers. Collect the Lore in the form of Dead on Arrival, then open the yellow chest for Hacksilver. Once you're done, collect the mushroom in the muddy pool for the second ingredient. Opposite where you collected the ingredient, hit the wooden log with two braziers on it with your axe. Pull it to the right with your Blades of Chaos to light once brazier, and then use Sigil Arrows to light the other.
Now pull it to the right to light a third brazier where the red vines are growing. Use Sigil Arrows to burn them away, and use your Leviathan Axe to knock down the drawbridge. Jump across for a Legendary Chest with an Axe Attachment named Grip of the Fallen Alchemist inside. The third and final ingredient is just to the right. There is one of Odin's Ravens just behind the Legendary Chest here if you want to kill it.
Return to the spirit you spoke to to start Cure for the Dead to complete this Favour, dealing with a trio of Reavers along the way. You'll get an Amulet named Svartalfheim's Fortune for your troubles.
