God of War: Ragnarok Trophy Guide & Roadmap
Welcome to the newest title in GOW series; Ragnarok is here! And so is the trophy guide. I hope it will help you find what you miss, and I hope you will enjoy the game as I did. Road to platium is an easy one, although some challenges aren't, but you can do it.
Step 1 - Beat the game to unlock all weapons, do favours and collect as you see fit
You can't miss anything related to trophies, but the Onslaught Shield is in Legendary chest that is blocked later in the story. If you miss it, you can buy it from the blacksmith shop.
First, don't worry about collecting stuff, you can first enjoy the story. I was always collecting stuff as I could, but you can save some time by doing so after beating the game. A lot of favours are also locked behing the main story progress so it makes sense to takle everything before the end (the game warns you when thatr moment ocurrs), or after the end.
I do want to note that there is a trophy for upgrading one armour set to its max level, so don't spend your resources across different sets to run out of resources. You could potentialy do yourself a problem, as enemies don't appear (some at all) after beating all events in all realms.
There are no tedious grindy or fetchy trophies to mention, most of them are related to favours and collecting all there is in all 9 realms. Some realms will not be accesible before doing certain favours, which will be your main goal in the post-game.
There is no New Game + mode at this moment, and patch 1.02, 1.03 fixed some bugs in the game, but I don't know at this point is there anything that is bugged.
Step 2 - Post-game & Collecting
After you beat the game you will have all weapons and key items needed for some collectibles in realms. You will also unlock Remnants of Asgard favour, which is not possible before.
You want to collect 100% collectibles when you check your map, for all realms. You don't need some collectibles, but you need most of them so I will do all of the topics with all you can collect.
I advise you to leave Berserker Gravestones for last if you don't want the extra challenge, and battling Gna is the hardest fight in the game, which is something you want to leave for the end of your journey. The rest is pretty straightfowards, so enjoy and I wish you a happy hunting!
PS4/PS5 auto pop-up trophies
You can auto-pop the platinum trophy if you transfer PS4 save to PS5 and load it. It doesn't work the other way.

List of other topics
Complete Nine Realms in Bloom favour.
In Midgard, The Forbidden Sands area, southwest corner. You can find a climbing ledge there, but do not climb, instead go left and pick up the flower 1/9 from the floor at the end. This starts the favour, you can now find the rest of the flowers. Full list and details can be found under the next topic, or in the correspoding collectibles topic of individual realm.
This refers to Lore collectibles. There is a LOT to be found across all realms. Only the lores that count towards realm % counts, so you can track that via map overview inside each realm. Check the realm collectible topics for details and videos how to find them all.
This refers to Artefact collectibles. There is a LOT to be found across all realms. Only the artefacts that count towards realm % counts, so you can track that via map overview inside each realm. Check the realm collectible topics for details and videos how to find them all.
As soon as you equip Yggdrasil Amulet, you can use enchantments and equip them in slots for it. Simply equip one to unlock the trophy.
This will happen naturally when you work your way towards Ready for Commitment trophy (upgrading an armour set to its max level).
This one got unlocked for me when you close the first Hell Tear gate. It will happen during the story when Atreus reunites with Kratos at Sindri's home realm.
Apples and Horns are a reward from Nornir chests. There are more Nornir chest than Apples and Horns, so you can even miss out on some. You can find all collectibles for all realms in corresponding realm collectible topics.
Early in the game you will have to purchase a Skill using the earned EXP. Simply open your menu and follow the tutorial when the game introduces buying Skills - and buy one to unlock this trophy.
Bear will be your first story boss, so this trophy will unlock automatically.
Bear is not hard, just dodge or block his moves, and dodge critial (red glowing circle) moves as they cannot be blocked. This fight will serve as a game tutorial in a way, and it shouldn't be that hard.
The God of Thunder is your second in-game boss fight, so this trophy cannot be missed.
Thor is a bit harder than Bear, and you have to dodge more. After you dodge try to attack and continue with few more attacks if he staggers, otherwise be patient and avoid what you can. You will have to go through 2 phases, both quite easy.
There are 6 Shield to be found, nothing is missable except maybe the Onslaught Shield. That last shield is not counted towards overal Helheim completion %, but it's needed for the trophy. If you miss it, you can buy from the blacksmith shop.
Sword Hilts and Relics are usually a story drop, or you need to finish a certain favour/open a certain chest. Some can even be found on ground, or in places that are not tied to overal completion %. It's a bit tricky to find them all without the pointers. Note that only Relics counts for this trophy, which is a bit misleading.
You will need Dragon Claw x1, Dragon Tooth x22 to craft all 3 pieces for this armor set. You get these items when you kill big lizzard mini-boss or boss enemies (Drekis), which are usually part of some favours or even story progress. By the time you finish the game you should have some of the mentioned items, and if you still miss some you can do "The Desert Door", "Freya's Missing Peace" favour. I had enough to fully upgrade all armour pieces, minus the one piece I was missing.
The moment when I was able to craft it was then I discovered The Plains area in Vanaheim.
You will need to find all Yggdrasil Amulet Fragments to fully upgrade the Amulet. Amulet is obtained during the story.
Complete Spirit of Rebellion favour that gets unlocked when you return from The Forge in Svartalfheim in the later parts in the game.
17:54 - Spirit of Rebellion 1/1 (start)
1:01:47 - Hammer of the Revolution (Favour item for Spirit of Rebellion Favour - return it back to client)
Complete The Mysterious Orb favour.
8:00 - The Mysterious Orb Favour start
*The Veiled Passage*
56:28 - Mysterious Orb Key Item (The Mysterious Orb favour)
1:05:55 - Burried Treasure 1/1: The Giant's Toes Treasure Map, River Delta Favours - The Mysterious Orb Favour End (New Friends Trophy)
Finish The Weight of Chains favour in Swartalfheim in the open area after Niđavellir (the village). You will have to find some keys and unchain the whale under the island there. The details can be found here:
Complete all Draugr Challenges across all realms. You can refer to collectible trophies for each region to easily find them.
When you return to Midgard a bit later with Kratos and Freya, you will have to follow a scent. This is not missable so you can do it later, but at that point you can start with raiding the camps, after which you just need to pet the wolfs that are your ride in this region. There are 4 locations where you need to enter and beat all enemies.
15:58 - Kol Raider Camps 1/1, Animal Instincts Favour 1/4, Lore 1/1: Treasure Map - Viking's Gift
21:05 - Kol Raider Camps 1/1, Animal Instincts Favour 2/4, Legendary Chests 1/1
27:30 - Kol Raider Camps 1/1, Animal Instincts Favour End (Besties Trophy)
Complete The Lost Lindwyrms favour.
When you return back after slaying Niđhogg boss Ratatoskr will have something for you. Pick up the Lindwyrm trap and now we can go hunt for Lindwyrms.
Complete A Stag for All Seasons favour.
After doing For Vanaheim favour you will find Birgir and unlock another Mystic Gateway. You can find your first Stag here, which will start the favour. You need to visit Sindri's House and talk to squirrel to initiate the favour. You now need to find 4 Stags. Return to The Plains in Vanaheim to get the first one, and we need to find others as well.
There are 15 Trials. First, you need to find 2 Muspelheim Seeds in Svartalfheim to unlock The Crucible gateway in Muspelheim. Then you will need to beat challenges. All the details you need can be found under the next topic:
The easiest way is to leave resources for the end without upgrading anything, and then take the weakest armour set to fully upgrade it. You can even save before and when you unlock the trophy just reload the save to save resources. Some resources can be found in Muspelheim area and these can be farmed by repeating the challenges. The rest is obtained throughout the game while doing certain favours and simply beating the game. You should have plenty for upgrading couple of armour sets after you clear everything.
Gleaming, Shinning, Sparkling Crystals can be found by throwing yellow crystals (destroy them in Vanaheim - Norhtern regions and pick them up) in the Wishing Well pond at the bottom in the middle to get it. That cannot be obtained any other way, and you will need them to upgrade your Waist Armour to the last level.
1:56:38 - 3 Weapon Hilts: Runic Hailstone Knob, Pommels of Burning Unity, Hind of Volatile Might, and Crystal armour upgrade resources
King Hrolf is the last Berseker Gravestone and it will appear in Midgard, King's Grave after you cleared all other gravestones. This is where you get the key item to tackle these challenges during the story, and the gravestones are all over the place, basically in all realms. You can refer to the collectibles guide of each region and simply search the term to find them.
1:10:32 - Berserkers Gravestones 1/1 - King Hrolf Kraki (Last one, unlocked after beating all others)
Gna is a valkyrie and can be found in Muspelheim. From the middle area in The Crucible crawn under a rock and follow the path to the area and pick up a book from the floor. This will initiate the toughest battle in the game. It's all about the moves, so learn her patterns and it should be doable. I was doing this after beating the game, after I did everything else, otherwise it could be tough. Also, you can lower the difficulty if you wish.
1:04:55 - Defend your Valour 1/1 (Defeat Gna "The True Queen" trophy)
