Head to Fafnir’s storeroom
Once the quest has been accepted head into your Goals tab of your start menu and move over to the favours tab and track the favour to get the waypoint to show on your compass. Follow your compass through the Lake of Nine and into Fafnir’s Ravine. Dock the boat Fafnir’s Storeroom and head down the path and through the camp with Sindri in it. Head through the woods full of enemies and into the cave in the waterfall and down the path.
Use entry stone on the pedestal
Head onto the stone Bridge and interact with the pedestal in the middle of the platform.
Search for the whetstone
Head through the door into the next room and defeat both enemies in the other room. Collect the entry stone in the far west and head back out to the stone platform. Head back to the pedestal and insert the entry stone. Head into the door to your East that a bridge built itself to. Defeat the two small enemies with the Viken Brawler, he has a bit of health but continue attacking him while shooting arrows at him to stun him. Once the three enemies are defeated grab the entry stone to the East and head back to the stone platform. Use the entry stone in the pedestal and head through the door to the Northwest that the bridge just formed to. Inside this room with be two Poison Revenants. Take them out and retrieve the entry stone and head back to the pedestal and place the stone to get access to the fourth room. Head through the door to the Southeast and you will have to take on 6 wolves. Most will be yellow bar difficulty but there will be one purple bar wolf. Focus on the smaller ones first and then take out the higher level one. Once they are all defeated grab the entry stone in the Southeast and head back to the pedestal and place the stone. Follow the new path through the door ahead. Head straight ahead and a Reaver Spirit will appear.
Talk to the Reaver Spirit
Speak with the Reaver Spirit to retrieve the dagger.
Return to Sindri
After taking the dagger two Ogres will spawn along with a wave of Nightmares. You will have to deal with the enemies before going onward. It is best to take out the higher level Ogre using your firsts and arrows first as your Stun attack will allow you to mount the Ogre and attack the other one. Make sure to eliminate the Nightmares as they spawn so you don’t have to dodge their attacks when trying to take out the Ogres. Once you have taken out all the enemies head back the way you came. Head through the forest and back to Sindri and speak with him to complete this favour.
This finishes the Fafnir’s Hoard quest in God of War.
