God of War Ragnarok can be a challenging game, but having a good understanding of the best enchantments makes even the hardest fights more manageable. Enchantments are found throughout the world of the game, coming in the form of items that offer various bonuses to Kratos when equipped. Although any enchantment can be useful, some God of War Ragnarök enchantments make a bigger impact than others.
Enchantments are far from the only way to increase Kratos’ fighting power, with weapons, gear, and relics all offering various benefits in combat. Taking full advantage of all options might not be necessary for every playthrough, but players looking to uncover the game’s secrets in full and take on the hardest optional bosses like the difficult God of War Ragnarok Berserkers will need every trick up their sleeves. Knowing which enchantments will prove most useful is critical to creating a strong God of War Ragnarok build, as up to nine can be equipped by the end of the game.
10 Remedy Of The Bifrost
Remedy of the Bifrost is the perfect enchantment to have equipped when players are going up against enemies that deal Bifrost damage. This is a nuisance of an effect and this enchantment makes things much easier.
Every successful attack that Kratos makes against an enemy will slowly heal Bifrost from his health bar. This allows the player to almost totally ignore the Bifrost damage as long as they’re quick enough. Players can craft this enchantment in the shop.
9 Emblem Of The Nine Realms
Emblem of the Nine Realms is an essential enchantment that they’ll want to equip when they’re ready to tackle various Realm Shifts in the game. Players will get this enchantment after triumphing over Heimdall in the best boss fight.
It increases all melee damage the player deals in Realm Shifts. This will help dramatically when players are tracking down each individual Realm Shift as the enemies that sprawl out of them can often be quite troublesome.
8 Niflheim Set
There are five different Niflheim enchantments the player can get, and they will need to equip three of them if they want the full effect they provide. It increases Kratos’ melee damage as long as he is above 75% health.
Each Niflheim enchantment grants a different bonus that will lend to Kratos’ overall stats. They are located in different areas, but two of them can be obtained by completing the Reunion quest, whereas a third can be crafted at the shop. The fourth one is gained after finishing the Under the Rainbow favor and the last one will be earned when killing the source behind all of Odin’s ravens in GoW Ragnarok, the Raven Keeper.
7 Alfheim Set
Like the Niflheim enchantments, the player will need to have at least three Alfheim enchantments equipped to get the set bonus. There are four different Alfheim enchantments in God of War Ragnarök in total.
Honor can be obtained by killing the Frost Phantom, Fortune by killing the Grave Belly, Virtue by completing the Forgotten Tower favor, and Vigor from the Overworld. The set bonus grants Kratos empowered attacks every time he performs a last-second dodge.
6 Asgard Set
The Asgard enchantments are another set players can equip to get a set bonus by equipping three. Their set bonus increases the heavy damage of all Kratos’ attacks and abilities based on his cooldown. Each one has some amazing boosts to Kratos’ God of War stats, like an increase in Strength and Cooldown which will lend support to the set bonus ability.
Two of these can be found during the Realms of the War quest. Two others can be found by fighting some of the difficult Berserker boss battles in God of War Ragnarök, Harđrefill, and Beigađr. The last one can be obtained by completing the Scar is Born favor.
5 Token Of Elemental Evasion
Token of Elemental Evasion is one of the best God of War Ragnarök enchantments that players can get. When fighting opponents that use specific elemental effects, equipping the Token of Elemental Evasion is a must.
Every time Kratos dodge rolls, the Token of Elemental Evasion will immediately hasten the expiration of the elemental effects, Burn, Poison, and Frost, making this one of the best Amulet of Yggdrasil enchantments. This can be obtained the first time the player raids a Kol Raider camp on Midgard.
4 Emblem Of Elusion
The Emblem of Elusion is a vital skill for players who find that they lack too much speed in combat, especially when they’re dodging. Every time Kratos evades an attack, he will gain a burst of speed that will help him run further.
This can turn the tide against some opponents, especially in some of the hardest boss fights in God of War Ragnarök like Gná and King Hrólf. Players will obtain this enchantment when they complete the Lost Treasure favor in Svartalfheim.
3 Celestial Panacea
Celestial Panacea is another enchantment players will want to equip to help their defenses against the annoying elemental effects in the game.
It gives a 25% resistance to every elemental and status effect in the game, which includes Burn, Frost, Poison, Bifrost, Daze, and Shock. This can be obtained in the beautiful God of War Ragnarök Vanaheim realm from the Wishing Well which comes with several other amazing rewards.
2 Crest Of Desperate Heroics
The Crest of Desperate Heroics is a great enchantment to rely on, and its effect will only kick in when Kratos is near death. When he is, he will be granted a short burst of an invincible barrier and a buff to strength.
This will help Kratos drive back his enemy as he fights at the brink of death. Once this boost ends, Kratos will then be given a burst of health back to help him survive even longer. Players can obtain this by completing the Casualty of War: The Broch.
1 Greater Regenerating Essence
Greater Regenerating Essence will be many players’ best friend in their attempts to change Kratos’ fate in God of War Ragnarok. A lesser version of this enchantment can be obtained at an earlier point by completing the Quaking Hollow favor.
However, the Greater Regenerating Essence can be earned by killing the Slag Horn in the Path of Destruction favor in Vanaheim’s jungle. As the name suggests, this enchantment grants a constant regeneration to Kratos’ health and is a superior version of the regular Regenerating Essence, making it unforgettable among the best God of War Ragnarokenchantments.
