God of War: Ragnarok is out now and since the last game was a couple of years ago, your skills might be a bit rusty. You need not worry. In this God of War: Ragnarok guide, we go over some useful tips and tricks that will help you on your journey.
God Of War: Ragnarok Tips And Tricks
The following are the tips and tricks that you should keep in mind when playing God of War: Ragnarok.
Tweak The Accessibility Settings
Santa Monica Studio has added plenty of accessibility options to God of War: Ragnarok. We recommend checking out the puzzle aim assist and auto pickup settings. You will be picking up a lot of items in the game so auto pickup is going to save a lot of time and button presses. If you are having trouble with mini-bosses then you can also turn on boss checkpoints.
Break Objects In The Environment
While progressing through the world, you will often find breakable objects such as vases and crates. You can break these to get items such as a health boost, rage boost, and even some Hacksilver.
Enemy Health Bars Show How Powerful They Are
Enemies in God of War: Ragnarok can have health bars with different colors. Green indicates that the enemy is lower level than you while yellow indicates a similar level. Orange means the enemy is a level higher than you, purple means two levels above yours and red means three levels above you.
Upgrade Your Runic Attacks
You can update your runic attacks up to level 3 by spending XP. Which is also used to upgrade and acquire skills. Try not to spend all your XP on skill and spend some on upgrading runic attacks that you like. This is similar to the previous game.
Rage Keeps You Out Of Harm’s Way
If you are surrounded by enemies or missed the yellow parry prompt then you can activate spartan rage to protect yourself. When this is triggered enemies will be knocked back. This even applies to some bosses such as the Dreki.
Interacting With Mystic Gateways Will Fill Your Gauges
Mystic Gateways are fast travel points that allow you to move from place to place quickly. When you interact with them, your health bar and rage meter are going to fill up. If you are low on health or want a full rage meter then interacting with a nearby Mystic Gateway is one way of doing just that. You do not have to go anywhere for the effects to take place.
Skills Can Be Disabled
If you activate a skill unintentionally and find it annoying then you can disable it from the skill tree. You can do that by pressing the triangle button.
Atreus’ Skill Tree Grows As You Progress
Atreus’ skill tree grows and opens up new possibilities as you progress through God of War: Ragnarok. If you do not like his initial skills then you can hold off until you progress the game enough to unlock skills that you like.
A Resurrection Stone Helps You Cheat Death
A resurrection stone allows Atreus to revive you if you die. This can come in handy if you are up against a tough boss. You can buy these from Brok or Sindri but you can only have one on you at a time. Which means that you can only be brought back to life once. Once the stone is used, you will need to buy another one.
