God Of War: Ragnarok Guiding Light Favor Walkthrough

The Guiding Light favor in God of War Ragnarok tasks players with investigating pieces of Tyr's statue and our guide will help you do that.

The Guiding Light armor set is one of the best sets you can find in God of War: Ragnarok if you are looking to increase your defenses. The armor set is rewarded for completing the Guiding Light favor in the game, which requires investigating different wreckage sites all over the Lake of Nine.

The following guide will tell you the locations of each wreckage site to make it easier to complete the favor in God of War: Ragnarok and get your hands on the armor set.

How to start Guiding Light

The Guiding Light side quest is activated once Kratos interacts with any one of the four wreckage sites that are located on the Lake of Nine in Midgard. It is to be noted, however, that this quest is only made available once the player has progressed until the Word of Favor main quest.

How to complete Guiding Light

There are four different wreckage sites, which consist of Tyr’s Helmet, Spear, Left Bracer, and Right Bracer. While exploring these wreckage sites Kratos and his companions will come across a rune inscribed on the armor, and at three of the four sites, you’ll find pieces of the Guiding Light armor set.

Tyr’s Helmet location

You can find this wreckage site on the north side of the Raider Stronghold, near Tyr’s Temple. At this wreckage site, you’ll find Tyr’s helmet, upon which you’ll notice a glowing runic inscription.

Interact with this rune, which reads, “Win Minds, Not Wars”, and look around the area to find the Breastplate of Guiding Light near a campfire under the helmet.

Tyr’s Spear location

Tyr’s spear can be found at the east of the Raider’s Stronghold. It is hard to miss since the rune inscribed onto it will be glowing with a bright blue hue, indicating its presence. Interact with the rune which reads, “Wish for Peace: Be Ready for War.”

Search around this site of wreckage and you’ll find the essence of Jotunheim, which can be combined with your amulet of Yggdrasil.

Tyr’s Left Bracer location

You can find Tyr’s Left Bracer near the Raider’s Fort, at its northern site. It’ll become visible once you can spot the bright blue glow of the rune inscribed onto it.

Interact with the rune which reads, “Defend the Peace.” Explore around this area, and you’ll find the Gauntlets of Guiding Light in this area.

Tyr’s Right Bracer location

Finding this piece of the statue’s wreckage requires a bit more exploration as compared to the rest. You’ll be required to head towards the north of Tyr’s temple. Here you’ll notice a giant slab of rock with a sigil inscribed on it.

Lift it and move ahead, where you’ll come across a hollow structure. You can move under this wreckage, you’ll come across an enemy which needs to be defeated.

Once the enemy has been dealt with you’ll notice a bunch of vines blocking your access to the statue’s wreckage. Clear out the vines and interact with the runic inscription which reads, “Iron Peace, Not a Golden War.”

Explore the wreckage and you’ll find the last piece of the armor, the Waist Guard of the Guiding Light. This quest is completed once you’ve interacted with all four of the wreckage sites. Equip the three armor pieces to complete the Guiding Light Armor set.
