How to Get Risen Snow Armor Set in God of War Ragnarok and Stats Explained

The Risen Snow Armor Set in God of War Ragnarok can be obtained by those who have pre-ordered the base version of God of War Ragnarok. In this article we discuss how good it is.

God of War Ragnarok rewards players who have pre-ordered its base version and those who have invested in its Deluxe version with special items including special powerful armor sets that’ll put them ahead of the curve. The reward for pre-ordering the base version is the Risen Snow armor set and in this article we’ll explore how powerful it is.

The speciality of the pre-order armor set is that they have all of their abilities unlocked at base level so you don’t need to level them up to enjoy their abilities. The Risen Snow armor set supports a very unique and fun playstyle which relies on mid-air strikes and combos to deal maximum damage.

If you’ve pre-ordered the base version of the game then you will automatically get some redemption codes on the email account linked to your PSN.

After you’ve got your redeem codes in the email, you can redeem these codes in-game and then complete Mission 1 to unlock Sindri’s house. The armor set will be within a chest that spawns near the forge near Sindri’s house and you can equip it on Kratos and Atreus after exhausting the dialogues with Sindri and Brok.

Set Effects:

With that out of the way, here are the set effects of this particular set:

  • Chest Piece: Launching an enemy has a high Luck chance to increase Kratos’ Strength and Stagger Resistance for a duration. When you launch opponents, Risen Might will appear on the left of your screen indicating that this buff has triggered and how long it will last. 
  • Wrist and Waist Pieces: Increases Stun dealt to airborne enemies.

How to Maximise the Viability of Risen Snow Armor Set

Here are some steps you can follow to maximise the viability of this set:

  • You can focus on using moves and skills that Launch enemies to maximise the DPS output while wearing this set. Most of such moves and skills should be listed in your skill trees.
  • Since the buffs only last about 4 seconds, you can work on your follow-up combos to build stacks.
  • Atreus’ Sonic Arrows could be used to quickie strike airborne opponents and thus deal massive stun damage quickly.
  • You can also use the Onslaught Shield to charge at opponents which will automatically launch them.
  • You can also pair the wrist and waist pieces of Risen Snow with Nidavellir’s Finest Plackart to gain a Health Burst when Stun Grabbing enemies.

Since you unlock the special effects of Risen Snow right from the get go, this keeps you way ahead of the curve in the early game. The fact that one of the buffs this armor set boosts per level is the Luck stat also means that as you level up this weapon the more chances you’ll have of its effects triggering. One of the downsides is that unlike other ordinary armor sets in God of War Ragnarok, you cannot change this one’s look once you max it out at Level 9.

As an English Masters graduate, I always dreamt of becoming a writer as a profession. Alas! I was led astray by anime and gaming. I enjoy open-world RPGs that encourage exploration with easy but flashy combat along the way. Art and aesthetics also matter immensely to me so even in games my characters tend to stare off into space. If I’m not gaming or watching anime I’m probably just asleep and dreaming.
