To upgrade the Amulet received after slaying Nidhogg in God of War: Ragnarök, players must search for collectibles known as Jewels of Yggdrasil.
Amulet Enchantments in God of War: Ragnarök are an excellent source of combat buffs that can substantially improve Kratos’s performance in battle, and players can increase the number of Enchantment slots by collecting rarities known as the Jewels of Yggdrasil. Fans will receive the Amulet of Yggdrasil after defeating Nidhogg, a major boss encounter during “The Reckoning.” This helpful piece of gear possesses a total of nine slots, but Kratos is only able to access two at the start. Therefore, if players wish to unlock the Amulet’s full potential with its Enchantments, they must search for every Jewel of Yggdrasil across the realms.
It should be noted that there are two Jewels of Yggdrasil in God of War: Ragnarök that players will receive during the main story of their playthrough. In other words, these Jewels are unmissable, removing the need for guidance on where to find them. The first unskippable Jewel can be obtained in the ninth main quest, “The Word of Fate,” during which Kratos and Freya are searching for the Norns. The second Jewel can be received during “Forging Destiny,” the tenth main quest that involves unlocking the Draupnir Spear as a weapon.
Find the Optional Jewels of Yggdrasil in God of War: Ragnarök
Those searching for the remaining five Jewels of Yggdrasil in God of War: Ragnarök can refer to the index below that provides information sourced from YouTuber HarryNinetyFour:
Enter The Elven Sanctum on the western side of The Forbidden Sands. Explore the inner chamber of the library and use the Blades of Chaos to grapple up to the upper floor to find a Legendary Chest with the first Jewel.
Fast travel to the Mystic Gateway near The Oarsmen and climb out the hole to the left of the portal. Ascend the ridge to find a massive chain connected to a board covering a hidden entrance. Pull the chain to reveal a chamber with the second Jewel of Yggdrasil in God of War: Ragnarök.
The third Jewel can be found on Lynbakr Island in Svartalfehim, but players must first use the grapple points to swing from Alberich Island to the Jewel’s location. Then, after solving a rudimentary waterwheel, players can access the upper cliffs where a Legendary Chest can be found.
A locked chamber containing a Jewel can be found in Noatun’s Garden of Vanaheim. To enter the chamber, activate the mechanism to open the entrance via the hole on the right side of the structure.
The final Jewel can be found in an area past the Season Stag of Summer’s location in The Jungle. Players must explore the area until they reach a clearing that triggers the “Path of Destruction” Favour. Then, leap down the nearby hole and use the axe to freeze the surrounding gate in place to access the hidden underground area containing the last Jewel of Yggdrasil in God of War: Ragnarök.
