God of War Enchantments Guide – Enchantment Perks, Unique Enchantments, Where To Find (Rare, Legendary, Epic)

The God of War 4 Guide below details all the possible acquirable Enchantments that will help you get a boost in your various stats and attributes for Kratos. Our God of War Enchantments Guide will pinpoint all the locations of these Enchantments and their application.

God of War Enchantments

Most of the Weapons, Armor, and Other Equipment that Kratos can obtain comes with an Enchantment Socket that are like extra slots. These will grant you a boost in attributes for Kratos like Strength, Health, etc. temporarily when activated.

It is to be noted though; many enchantments are generated randomly as you roam the world of God of War. These enchantments can be generated via the Huldra Shops too which charges 3,000 Hacksilver and 2 Enchanted Dust for common ones while 10,000 Hacksilver and 10 Enchanted Dust is needed for Rare Enchantments.

Legendary Enchantments will cost you 15,000 Hacksilver and 50 Enchanted Dust. Lastly, the Epic category of generated enchantments will require you to spend the same amount of Hacksilver as that of Legendary ones but 250 Enchanted Dust will be needed.
