These Enchantments will greatly increase Kratos’ abilities in combat- either by increasing his damage or by providing healing and other perks.
God of War Ragnarok changes the Enchantment system by removing the rarity system and having it used through the Amulet of Yggdrasil instead of slotting them into weapons. Players must collect the fragments or Jewels of Yggdrasil to increase the enchantment slots available to them. In this article, we discuss some of the best individual and set enchantments in God of War Ragnarok.
Top 5 Enchantment Sets in God of War Ragnarok
These following sets are valuable only for their set effects which can be unlocked once you equip 3 pieces of the same set:
Helheim’s Enchantment Set
This set increases Kratos’ melee damage when he’s below 50% Health. The set scales off of his Vitality. Of the 3 pieces of this set, Helheim’s Force is a must-have due to its stat bonuses which are as follows:
- Strength: 12
- Vitality: 3
Midgard’s Enchantment Set
This set increases the damage of all of Kratos’ ranged attacks and abilities based on his CD or Cooldown. Equipping all 3 pieces (Midgard’s Bravery, Endurance and Justice) will give you the following stats:
- Cooldown: 15 (2+10+3)
- Defence: 20
- Runic: 12
Jotunheim’s Enchantment Set
This set increases Kratos’ maximum Rage based on his Vitality. This set also pairs well with Helheim’s set since they both scale off of Vitality. The best piece of this set is Jotunheim’s Essence which gives:
- Strength: 4
- Vitality: 4
- Luck: 6
Asgard’s Enchantment Set
This set increases the damage of all of Kratos’ weapon (Triangle) attacks and abilities based on his Cooldown. All 3 pieces of this set are great due to them giving lots of stat bonuses. In total you get the following numbers after equipping all 3 pieces:
- Cooldown: 9 (3+3+3)
- Strength: 19 (12+7)
- Defence: 19 (12+7)
- Vitality: 3
Vanaheim’s Enchantment Set
This set increases Kratos’ melee damage against status-afflicted enemies based on his Luck. All 3 pieces of this set are also great due to their various stat bonus as depicted below:

Top 5 High-Value Individual Enchantments in God of War Ragnarok
These following enchantments aren’t a part of particular sets and thus their set bonuses can be activated just by slotting them. Below are what we consider the 5 best individual enchantments in God of War Ragnarok.
Crest of Desperate Heroics
Kratos gets a short invincible barrier, a buff to his Strength and a Health Burst every time his Health drops to a critical level. The set needs 100 Vitality to activate. This enchantment can be obtained after completing the Casualties of War: The Brooch side quest in The Plains of Vanaheim.
Greater Regenerating Essence and Regenerating Essence
Even though these are two individual enchantments, we’ve listed them together as a set as both of them can stack and are thus best used together in tandem for healing. Greater Regenerating Essence adds a great amount of constant Health regeneration and needs 170 Vitality to activate. Regenerating Essence is a lesser version of the same as it too adds a small amount of constant Health regeneration and needs 60 Vitality to activate.
These enchantments work great with Helheim’s Enchantment set and Jotunheim’s Enchantment set as they both scale off of Vitality. With either of these sets, you can further increase Kratos’ damage.
This set grants Kratos a 25% resistance to all status effects- including frost, burn, blind, daze, poison, shock and bifrost statuses. This enchantment piece can be obtained by cleansing the yellow crystals at the Wishing Well in The Crater of Vanaheim.
This enchantment creates a one-time-use protective barrier that absorbs a single attack and when broken, deals a concussive shockwave to nearby enemies that stuns them temporarily. It then slowly regenerates the broken barrier for its next use. The enchantment needs at least 175 in Cooldown to activate.
This piece pairs well with Asgard’s enchantment set or Midgard’s enchantment set as they too both scale off of Cooldown to increase Kratos’ damage. Fossilised Keepsake can be obtained by completing the Casualties of War: The Toy side quest in The Jungle of Vanaheim.
Boon of Valour
When equipping this enchantment, your Spartan Rage Valour heals less but provides a powerful buff of Strength and Lifesteal for a duration which makes up for the loss of healing. This piece can be obtained after beating Blatton in the Creatures of Prophecy quest which is the 13th quest in The Path (Ragnarok’s Main Story Questline)
We hope this list was of some value to you. God of War Ragnarok is still a very fresh game and players are still discovering its many aspects- including new items, talismans and enchantments. In this above list, we’ve listed the best of what has already been discovered in the game.
