God of War Ragnarök: Jarnsmida Pitmines puzzle guide

GOD of War Ragnarök has nine different areas to explore, each with its own tricky puzzles.

One of those is the Jarnsmide Pitmines, which require some puzzle-solving in order to get the Kvasir poem here.

This guide will tell you both how to enter the mines, and where to find all the hidden goodies along the way.

Here’s how to freeze your way through God of War’s Pitmines, and pick up this Kvasir poem:

How to find the Kvasir poem in Jarnsmida Pitmines

Start off by giving Atreus a lift onto the higher platform. He’ll jump across and then you can tell him to pull the lever.

This will bring the platform down so you can jump across, but it will keep moving. To stop it, freeze the gear with your axe when it’s in a good position.

On the other side, jump to the next platforms and use your blades to attach to the grapple point and turn the water trough.

This causes a concrete block to rise so that you can continue on.

Drop down from here, and climb onto the next platform. You can then throw your axe at the trough to stop the water from flowing.

This will lower the concrete block so you can grapple it again. Recall your axe once you are standing on top of the block to move up.

Then you can jump across and open the gate to reunite with Atreus.

You will then jump over a small gap to move a cart aside. Sindri will then give you a light, so you can explore the mines.

Don’t enter the mines yet. There will be some frogs that you have to take out first.

Go back to where the cart was, and you will see a grapple point. Pull on it to turn the water trough and cause the crane to spin around.

Smash the nearby rubble by making the jar explode then come back the way you came.

At the gate where you met up with Atreus, you can hook onto the large block of concrete.

From here, look back at the hook point and throw your axe at the trough to freeze it.

The crane will turn again, and carry you with it. On the other side you will find a Kvasir Poem alongside some other goodies.
