Take note of the first boat dock just west of the Mystic Gateway. Here you will find The Brooch.

Once you are on the correct path you will see a locked gate on the right with a poison mist behind it. You must shoot purple runic arrows near the gate to cause an axe to start a chain reaction. This will culminate in a reaction that freezes the poison totem causing the mist.
In the same location as the Lore Marker, you need to eliminate three Nornir totems. The first totem is located on the right side of the chest in a tree. The second totem is on the left of the chest, positioned on a hill. The third totem is behind the chest, hidden in a tree. To reach it, you’ll have to throw your axe at the poison totem.
