throughout the realms you’ll stumble across dozens of treasure chests, ranging from small boxes Kratos can simply rip open with his bare hands, to others that are mysteriously sealed by runic magic.
simple, right? except it isn’t. some won’t always be available right away – Kratos or atreus may be missing the specific tool or ability to even access them – and others require Kratos to either find the special seals and break them, or ring bells in a specific order. it’s worth doing as many as you can, though; unlock them and you’ll be able to feast on the goodies within, with rewards ranging from boosts to your rage and life bars, to precious resources needed to level up your talismans.
