God of War: Where to Find All Valkyries and How to Beat Them
On this page, we're going to explain where to find all Valkyries and how to beat them in God of War.
Where to Find All Valkyrie Locations
The location of the eight main Valkyries will be marked on your map after you complete God of War’s main quest, so it may be worth waiting until you’ve wrapped up the plot before tackling these challenging optional bosses – you’ll need good gear to win these battles anyway. Still, here are the regions where you’ll find all Valkyries in God of War:
- The River Pass
- The Mountain
- Thamur’s Corpse
Once you’ve beaten all of these, you’ll unlock one final battle at the Council of Valkyries, located to the north-east of the Lake of Nine. We’ll let you discover this fight for yourself.
How to Prove Your Valour and Defeat All Valkyries
Valkyries are challenging foes and you’re going to have to use everything you’ve learned in God of War thus far defeat them. Remember to keep your distance and remain on the move. Ensure that you’ve got your best possible armour and gear equipped, and that you’re working with Runics that you like. Some kind of health regenerating Talisman and armour can come in handy during these fights – consider some of Ivaldi’s kit from Nilfheim.
Make sure that you’ve upgraded everything to its maximum level by finding all Idunn Apple locations and all Horns of Blood Mead locations. Also ensure to have a Resurrection Stone on hand when things get dicey. Try to enter the battle with maximum Rage but don’t use it until you need to claim some health back. Trigger any buffs as you approach each Valkyrie, and let rip with your weapons and Atreus the moment the battle begins to get a head start.
If all else fails, consider lowering the difficulty of the game in the options menu. Beat all eight and head to the Council of Valkyries to complete this Favor quest, and unlock the Chooser of the Slain Trophy.
