God of War Ragnarok sees Kratos attempting to start Ragnarok and destroy Odin and his land of Asgard. Kratos works with many different people in an effort to start the Prophecy and finally ride the Nine Worlds of Odin.
Given that this is happening, it makes sense that Kratos would have Close Yggdrasil Rifts starting to pop up around different areas of the game. These disagreements are optional, but they do give you some nice rewards.
What are YGGDRASIL cleavages?
These divisions contain some powerful enemies that Kratos can destroy to get rare materials and rewards. These rifts are required if you wish to complete the benevolent (or optional side quest) “The Lost Lindwyrms”. There are a total of 15 rifts in all, and each one contains some fun and challenging enemies.
There is only one Yggdrasil fault located within Alfheim.
The first Yggdrasil fault is located within the Forbidden Sands region of Alfheim. Travel to the area where you completed the quest titled “Account”. Once there, head north until you see a rock on which you can use your hook. Then you will see a wall that can be destroyed. Smashing it leads you to a path. Follow this path and find Yggdrasil Rift.
There are three Yggdrasil Rifts located in Midgard.
Head to the area where you completed the “Seeking Solace” quest. There is a certain area where I raised a bridge so that you can cross over to Tyre Temple. Across the bridge are two flights of stairs. The group on the left leads you to this rift.

After you get the Draupnir Spear, travel to Dragon Beach. Use the spear at the embed point immediately to your left. Once you climb it, you can use your hook to cross the big gap. You will see a beam under which you can crawl, the Yggdrasil Rift is on the other side.
During the “Forging Destiny” mission, you will be in the Myrkr Tunnels area. You can find this rift after the second gate in the area.
