God of War Ragnarok Premise

God of War Ragnarok Kratos Atreus

God of War Ragnarok is a third-person action-adventure game from Sony Santa Monica Studios. The game continues the style established in 2018’s God of War, with Kratos now in the Nine Realms from Norse mythology. Both God of War and Ragnarok partner Kratos with his son Atreus on a quest to subvert fate.

Ragnarok is an action game with combo-heavy visceral combat that builds on the formula from the previous title. The game’s combat encounters are broken up by puzzle solving and RPG elements. The RPG elements and build craft of God of War are more expansive in Ragnarok, which results in more freedom and flexibility in how players approach encounters.

Please note that several of the secrets outlined here contain MAJOR spoilers for God of War Ragnarok. Proceed with caution and at your own risk!

God of War Ragnarok Secrets

The Mysterious Heirloom

When playing God of War Ragnarok you may find the Mystical Heirloom Relic, which can be equipped but serves no apparent purpose. That is until you uncover its hidden ability. After completing Chapter 10 and can open up pathways between the Realms, return to the Lake of Nine in Midgard. South of Tyr’s Temple you’ll find a large ice wall leading to The Lost Treasury.

Look for the telltale yellow wind vent that indicates a spot to throw the Draupnir Spear and detonate it to open up a new path. Looking into the crevice created by Draupnir reveals the body of a Dwarf, along with the mysterious Relic and a Lore scroll. As you travel through the Realms, you may uncover large Troll statues with giant weapons near Lore Markers. Using the Mystical Heirloom at these statues reawakens them to combat as mini-boss fights. Defeating all of the Trolls awakened by the Mystical Heirloom grants Slumber Stones, which are necessary to craft one of the game’s best armor sets — the Steinbjorn Armor.

Discovering Tyr’s Real Prison

After beating the main story of God of War Ragnarok you’ll likely be wondering what happened to the real Tyr since the one assisting our heroes throughout the game was actually Odin in disguise. Returning to Niflheim during the Epilogue and post-game will reveal a new path created by the ruins of Asgard. This path leads to a prison that is still guarded by the Aesir, and fighting your way through to the bottom floor will lead straight to the real Tyr’s prison cell.

After some discussion regarding the Norse god of war’s fate and why Odin kept him alive, Kratos releases the real Tyr. He can then be found at various locations throughout the Nine Realms after completing the secret “Broken Prison” side quest outlined above. Tyr can be found at the following locations:

  • In Midgard’s Lake of Nine on a large mound north of Tyr’s Temple
  • Freyr’s Camp in Vanaheim, overlooking the river in the cavern
  • At Muspelheim’s Spark of the World, overlooking the ledge where Surtr transformed
  • In Alfheim at the Strond near the entrance to the Temple of Light, north of the Asgardian Remnant Camp
  • In Svartalfheim at the Watchtower where Kratos summoned Lyngbakr
  • In Helheim having a conversation with Hraesvelgr

Recover Health and Rage Instantly

God of War Ragnarok‘s combat is best-in-class among third-person action-adventure games but it can be pretty tough. When you need quick replenishment between encounters and don’t want to scavenge for health and rage stones, there’s a simple trick to replenish Kratos’ reserves. Simply visit any Mystic Gateway and interact with it but don’t travel anywhere. Your Health and Rage will replenish, and you’ll be ready for whatever Ragnarok throws at you next!
