God of War Ragnarok Guide: Tips and Tricks for Beginners
In this final section of our God of War Ragnarok guide, we'll include some tips and tricks for beginners, including things we wish we'd known before we started playing. Below you'll find a list of simple strategies and techniques that can help you get the most out of Santa Monica Studio's latest.
Learn When to Defend and When to Dodge
When enemies attack in God of War Ragnarok, coloured circles will appear on the screen to illustrate what you need to do. It's imperative you pay attention to these. A yellow circle means that a move can be parried, so tap the L1 button just at the last moment before the hit lands to stagger your foe. Meanwhile, a red circle means that the strike will break your guard, so dodge roll out of its way.
Health Bars Represent the Strength of Your Enemy
If you're repeatedly coming up against enemies that are kicking your ass, then carefully consider the colour of your aggressor's energy bar. If they have a red HP meter, then that means they're at a higher level than you currently are. While you may have some success against these foes, it may be a good idea to come back once you've upgraded your equipment. This is especially true with enemies who have skulls on their life bar.
Don't Be Afraid to Move On
While it can be tempting to try to complete everything God of War Ragnarok shows you in one fell swoop, the reality is that its Nine Realms are designed to be returned to. This means that you won't be able to reach all of the game's secrets right away, as you may need an additional piece of equipment or a special ability. Spend as much time as you like exploring, but don't be afraid to move on when you're ready — after all, you can always comes back later.
Speak with Brok and Sindri Regularly
If you're passing one of the Huldra Brothers' many workshops on your journey, then don't be afraid to drop-in and say hello. While it's not always true, a lot of the time they'll have new equipment available for you, so it's always a good idea to quickly check in and see what they have on offer. Make sure you're upgrading your equipment when you can, too; there are enough resources in the game to upgrade everything, so there's really no point in hoarding.
And that concludes our God of War Ragnarok guide, we sincerely hope you've found this walkthrough and 100% completion resource useful! If you have any further suggestions for content we could add to our wiki, let us know in the comments section below.
