Labors offer you a ton of optional content in God of War 4. There are literally dozens of different things you can do, and chances are that you will not be able to even comprehend everything, so this God of War Labors Guide is here to help you.
Our God of War Labors Guide will tell you all about the different labors content that is available in the game and guide you through it so that you can get the rewards that it offers.
God of War Labors
Let’s get right into it. You can upgrade your Leviathan Axe if you are able to find Frozen Flames. You can get a reward of 3290 XP if you can upgrade your axe by taking the Frozen Flames to Brok or Sindri.
In order to get the Frozen Flames, Defeat the Ogre on Foothills and then defeat both Jarn Fotr in Heart of the Mountain and Magni and Modi at Thamur’s Corpse. Once you have done that, purchase Frozen Flames from the shop at Nilfheim for 5000 Mist Echoes.
Chaos Flames can be acquired in order to upgrade your Blades of Chaos. Once you defeat Mattugr Helson in Helheim, you have to defeat the Trolls in Tyr’s Vault (collect the Black Rune Stone before that) and then defeat the Hel-Traveler. This will allow you to purchase Chaos Flames from the shop at Muspelheim.
Crafting Armor Labors
If you get an Ancient’s Heart, you can take the Heart to the shop of Brok or Sindri and you will be able to get the Ancient Armor Set Recipe.
Remember to pick up the Rubble from the Ancient which is essential in crafting the armor. Lastly, remember that the Soul Eater and the Soul Devourer do not drop the Ancient Heart upon death.
When you complete three Wayward Spirit Favors, you get an Offering to Tyr. Take that to Brok or Sindri and you can craft one of three different armor pieces. You can also get a Traveler’s resource from a traveler and take that to Brok or Sindri to get a Legendary Armor Set.
