Final reward: The Finger of Ruin (Draupnir Spir Heavy Runic Attack)

First up, you’ll be able to claim the final chest reward once all Ravens are back on their tree. This final chest contains The Finger of Ruin, a Heavy Runic Attack for the Draupnir Spear. In triggering this ability, Kratos summons a massive tornado that sends enemies tumbling in its path.

This reward is certainly powerful in its own right, making the collectible hunt worthwhile already. But opening this chest is just the start of what’s to come after tracking down all of Odin’s Ravens.

The Raven Keeper boss fight

Upon opening the final chest, The Raven Keeper appears and makes their presence known. Agitated you’ve ‘freed’ all of their indoctrinated birds, this new character isn’t all too pleased with Kratos. Naturally, a boss fight ensues.

By the time you’ve tracked down every Raven, you should be quite well-equipped, so this section of the fight shouldn’t prove much of a challenge. While The Raven Keeper summons a few smaller enemies in multiple phases, it’s nothing too overwhelming, allowing Kratos to focus them and dwindle their health away with relative ease.

The Pale One Boss fight

Before you can fully deplete The Raven Keeper’s health bar, however, they call on some assistance from the final dragon in Ragnarok. The Pale One looms overhead, sweeping across the skies and occasionally dropping in for some close-range attacks.

While it’s definitely intimidating, you’ll no doubt be familiar with how dragon boss fights go at this stage. Activating your Runic attacks, calling in your summon abilities, and spamming combos will see this boss fight wrapped up in no time at all.

With the dragon defeated, it’s time for a final attack on The Raven Keeper, who quickly meets their end.

Hilt of Forsbrandr reward

For finding every one of Odin’s Ravens and then wiping out The Raven Keeper, you’ll unlock the Hilt of Forsbranr. This unique piece of equipment pushes enemies back with force and provides a protective aura for Kratos in the process.

It comes with a brief 87-second cooldown and upgrades help increase its duration, allowing you to basically negate multiple enemy attacks with it.

The Hilt of Forsbrandr will definitely come in handy for the remaining endgame content you have left to clear up.

If you still have various other endgame content to wrap up, whether it’s the Berserker fights or Muspelheim challenges, having the Hilt of Forsbranr will certainly help out.
