God of War Materials Locations Guide

There are a lot of different resources that you can find and they can be used for a plethora of different stuff. Mainly, they are used for upgrading the armor of Kratos and enhancing his combat stats so that he can be more effective when in battle. The resources are vast in number and thus, this God of War Materials Locations Guide is essential when trying to find them.

God of War Materials

The materials in GoW will be used to upgrade bits and pieces for your armor. You will need to use them to craft new pieces and make Kratos stronger as you will probably not be able to deal with some of the better monsters that come in the later stages of the game without these upgrades.

These upgrades can be found all over the world, and thus, it is good to have a manual that can effectively guide you in securing whatever it is that you need with ease.
