The Weight of Chains is a Favor in God of War: Ragnarok that automatically starts after you reach Lyngbakr Island in the Bay of Bounty, Svartalfheim. Your objective is to free the Lyngbakr that was chained years ago by Mimir.

First Fin
After you return to Lyngbakr Island, defeat the enemies and destroy the red vessel to clear the debris. Interact with the mechanism ahead and throw your Leviathan Axe at the chain to break it.

Second Fin
Now return to the previous area and you will notice a newly opened path. You need to jump across the gap and climb the chains to see a Lore Marker on the right — you can also climb the wall across the Lore Marker for a red chest and one of Kvasir’s Poems. Return to the Lore Marker and swing to the other side. From there, drop down the chain and free the second fin.

After freeing the second fin, destroy the Wretches’ Nest that appears to reveal some Fire Bombs. You need to grab a Fire Bomb and toss it at the nearby debris to clear it. Collect another Fire Bomb, jump across the gap and toss it at the docks (covered in debris) down below — Atreus will point it out.

Before returning to the boat, open the nearby gate, collect a Fire Bomb, and clear the debris in the area from where you came. Jump across to the red chest and crawl through a hole to get one of Odin’s Ravens.

Now return to your boat and go to the docks that you cleared earlier. Once you are there, head up, defeat some enemies, and interact with the mechanism there. Mimir will now ask you to slide down the rope to break the last chain — do that and do not forget to open the Legendary Chest nearby.

After breaking all three chains, return to your boat and go to Lyngbakr’s Eye to complete the Favor.

You will receive 1,000 XP for Kratos, 250 XP for Atreus, and the ‘Making Amends’ trophy.

There are a few more Favors that you can complete in Svartalfheim:

  1. In Service of Asgard
  2. Spirit of Rebellion
  3. The Lost Treasure
  4. A Viking Funeral
