Welcome to the God of War Ragnarök trophy guide.

If you’re new to the God Of War franchise take the first couple of hours to learn the mechanics, combat style and how the game plays.

You can play through Ragnarök on any difficulty so if you’re just here for the story and the platinum put the game on the easiest difficulty to have a much easier time of it.

The game will still be a challenge if you are under powered, levelled or geared so ensure you improve your gear whenever you’re able at any one of the Blacksmith Forges you can find throughout most of the realms.

There are a lot of collectibles in God Of War Ragnarök which can either be collected as you progress through the main story or obtained after the main story, the choice is yours.

I do recommend, however, that you go after all of the Idunn Apples and Horns of Blood Mead as you work through the main story at the very least as these items increase your maximum health and Spartan Rage respectively, check out Full Belly Silver Image PS for more information.

None of the trophies are missable, you can access every area that hold collectibles after completing the main game with every Favour, which are the games side quests, a good number of which open up new areas throughout the realms being completable before or after the main games’ conclusion.

Throughout the 9 realms you will come across Legendary Chests which usually require some traversal or going off the beaten track to find and loot them. There aren’t any trophies linked in to finding the Legendary Chests although some Chests will contain items you need to get to a given realm where some trophies can be obtained.

Check out the complete Legendary Chests locations guide on where to find and how to loot every Legendary Chest in the game, some of which are locked in story progression, although none of the story progression ones are linked to any trophies, they contain Runic Summons or gear for companions for the most part.

Once in The Crater you can start the Crater Hunts which consist of completing 9 different Favours throughout the 3 main areas inside The Crater.

God of War Ragnarok Besties trophy
Silver Trophy

Pet Speki and Svanna

Continue through the game to Midgard, Lake of Nine where you can take down 4 Raider Camps dotted around the area.

The camps you need to take down are:

  1. Raider Hideout found in the Eastern section of the map.
  2. Raider Stronghold which is located in the centre of the map underneath Tyr’s Temple.
  3. Raider Keep which is found in the Southern section of the map.
  4. Raider Fort which is found on the Western side of the map.

The Raider camps shouldn’t pose you too many issues as long as you have been upgrading yourself and your gear as you have been working your way through the game. Keep an eye out for the threat detection markers which will help you roll out of harms way for the most part and keep the pressure on the enemy to whittle them down.

You will have some Radiers who have a blue bar on their shield, if you see a blue health bar, switch to your Blades of Chaos to inflict heavy damage on their shields.

Clearing out the first of the Raider camps will initiate the Animal Instincts favour where you can then follow the quest markers on the map to locate camps or you can look at the image below for their exact locations.

When you have cleared out the 4th camp you will then have a tough fight against the Chieftain: Oluf Nautson who does hit very hard and has a high health pool even on the easier difficulties so ensure you have a good number of upgrades before taking him on to stand a chance of coming out the other side victorious.

After taking Oluf down you can go and interact with your Wolves where your trophy will unlock after the cutscene.

God of War Ragnarok Rightful Place trophy

Check out the complete Trials by Fire trophy guide for exactly what you need to do.

God of War Ragnarok Ready for Commitment trophy
Gold Trophy

Ready for Commitment
Fully upgrade one armor set

You can upgrade any armour set in the game, however, there are only a few armour sets you should fully upgrade as your resources are finite in the game.

Personally, I went for the Dragon Scaled Armour set (see Dragon Slayer Silver Image PS for how to craft the armour) as you need to craft it on your way towards unlocking The Bear and the Wolf Platinum Image PS and it is a very powerful set, although the choice is yours.

Before you can fully upgrade the Dragon Scaled Armour you will firstly need to unlock Invasive Species ensuring you collect all of the loot from the Crater Hunts where you will then have a lot of the items required, namely Dragon Tooth and Dragon Claw.

In addition to taking down the Crater Hunts, you will also need to complete the, The Desert Door Favour in Alfheim where you will then receive another set of Dragon Tooth.

Before you can begin The Desert Door Favour, you will firstly need to complete the following 3 Favours:

  1. Secret of the Sands Favour.
  2. Song of the Sands Favour.
  3. Freyr’s Gift Favour.

Take down Gravel Belly, who is a powerful Drake you would of fought variations of during Invasive Species Silver Image PS ensuring you collect its dropped loot.

You can then head to a Blacksmith and select your Armour enabling you to upgrade all 3 pieces of a single set all the way through to level 9.

Upgrading pieces of armour from different sets won’t count and will just waste your resources.

In addition to the Dragon Tooth and Dragon Claw items you will also need a good amount of Hacksilver, 190,000 which can be found throughout the realms, you can also sell the artefacts you acquire as you proceed through The Curator Bronze Image PS.

Finally, you will also need a few rare items to complete the level 9 upgrades for each piece of armour.

Divine Ashes and Smouldering Embers are found in the the Legendary Chests you are awarded upon completing the Trials during Trials by Fire Silver Image PS.

Purified Crystalline can be refined in Vanaheim, The Crater, Wishing Well (where you acquire the 4th Lost Page you need as you work towards Collector Silver Image PS. Smash the 3 large crystals around the lower section of Wishing Well and throw the crystal pieces in to the water.

Here is what you will need in order to upgrade all 3 pieces of the Dragon Scaled Armour which start off at level 6:

Dragon Scaled Breastplate

  • Level 7:
    Dragon Claw: 2.
    Hacksilver: 20,000.
  • Level 8:
    Dragon Claw: 2.
    Divine Ashes: 1,500.
    Hacksilver: 25,000.
  • Level 9:
    Dragon Claw: 3.
    Smouldering Embers: 2.
    Hacksilver: 35,000.

Dragon Scaled Bracers

  • Level 7: 
    Dragon Tooth: 8.
    Hacksilver: 13,500.
  • Level 8:
    Dragon Claw: 1.
    Divine Ashes: 750.
    Hacksilver: 16,500.
  • Level 9:
    Dragon Claw: 1.
    Purified Crystaline: 20.
    Hacksilver: 25,000.

Dragon Scaled Girdle

  • Level 7:
    Dragon Tooth: 8.
    Hacksilver: 13,500.
  • Level 8:
    Dragon Claw: 1.
    Divine Ashes: 750.
    Hacksilver: 16,500.
  • Level 9:
    Dragon Claw: 1.
    Purified Crystalline: 20.
    Hacksilver: 25,000.

Once you have fully upgraded all 3 pieces of any armour set you will then earn your trophy.

God of War Ragnarok Ragnarök trophy
Gold Trophy

Battle the All-Father

Story related and cannot be missed. You will take on the All Father at the end of the main game.

Ensure you upgrade your gear and weapons at a Blacksmith before you start the final mission (you will be told of the point of no return).

Take down the All-Father to earn your trophy.

God of War Ragnarok Grave Mistake trophy
Gold Trophy

Grave Mistake
Battle King Hrólf

You will need to progress the story to where you acquire the Hilt of Skofnung which is a story progression item in Midgard as you are searching for the Norns.

You will then need to find glowing gravestones which are located throughout the realms and house some of the toughest fights in the game.

Ensure you are at least Power Level 8 or above before tackling the Berserkers, especially as some gravestones contain 2 bosses which really ramps up the difficulty level.

King Hrölf will be the final Beserker you can fight and will only appear once all of the other Beserkers have been take down.

Check out the complete Grave Mistake trophy guide for where to find and how to best take down every Beserker Gravestone.

God of War Ragnarok The True Queen trophy
Gold Trophy

The True Queen
Battle Gná

You will firstly need to have beaten the main game then I strongly recommend you get your power level (Look to the top left screen in your in game menu) to level 9 by levelling up your weapons and upgrading your armor where even then and even on the easiest, Give Me Story difficulty you will still have a serious battle on your hands.

Once you’re ready to face off against Gná, head over to Muspelheim, The Crucible, drop down to the Nornir Chest then look right to go through a crawlspace.

Drop off the right side and mantle across to the a new area then once you’re ready, interact with the book on the floor where Gná will drop in and the fight begins.

The battle is tough, there’s no way around it, Gná hits incredibly hard and has a very high health pool. You will need to use every trick in the book including using Runic Arrows if you manage to set her alight, throwing Draupnir into her and detonating them to help prevent an attack and shield parry as best as you can.

Don’t be surprised if this fight takes you a lot of attempts to do as she is just that tough but that said, Gná isn’t an impossible challenge so with practice, learning her moves, learning when to dodge and when to parry will help you out a lot then once you do take the new Valkyrie Queen down, your trophy will unlock.

That’s the God of War Ragnarök trophy guide complete, I hope it helps you through the game.
