God of War Ragnarok introduces even more skills than its prequel for you to choose from. Of course, while all these skills will provide a nice boost to your power, not all of them are equal.
That said, you’d do well to pick the best skills early on in the game, and that’s what we’ll talk about in this guide.
Skills Guide | Best Skills to Get First in God of War Ragnarok
Before we get to the best skills to pick, let’s have an overview of the skills that you can access in Ragnarok. In the early stages of the game, the game will teach you how to use your Leviathan Axe more effectively.
The very first skill you can learn is Frost Awaken which basically encases the axe in ice to make your next attack deal even more damage.
To do this, all you need to do is hold the triangle button for a few seconds. The game will give you a visual indicator of the frost effect, and this will remain in the axe for roughly 15 seconds.
Then, once you hit an enemy with the axe, Kratos will then perform a weapon technique.
Now, there are various weapon techniques available depending on the skills that you pick.
There’s the Frozen Breach which applies Frost to nearby enemies when you swing your axe. Then there’s Frozen Spike where you throw the axe to create a Frost explosion on impact.
Early on in the game, you’ll have access to some really nice skills for your axe. However, some of them will require you to meet certain requirements to unlock. For example, the Frozen Lance skill requires you to defeat the boss in the Alfheim realm.
How to Deal More Damage with Your Skills
There are a couple of ways that you can deal more damage when using your skills. For example, you can pick the Vaporise Frost skill for your Blades of Chaos to cause your blade melee attacks to deal more damage to Frosted enemies.
This plays a really nice synergy with your axe skills as all you need to do is build up Frost and then let your blades finish off your target.
On the other hand, you can also unlock the Extinguish Flames skill for your axe. What this skill do is it lets your axe deal more damage against Burning enemies.
So, it’s the opposite of the previous combo where you instead have to ignite your targets with your blade and then switch to the axe for more damage.
Talking about the Blades of Chaos, their charging mechanics work a bit differently. Unlock the axe where you have to hold the triangle button, you instead have to tap it repeatedly for the blades to build up power. Eventually, you’ll notice flames surrounding your blade indicating that it’s at maximum charge.
Best Skills to Get Early On
Now, it’s time to talk about the main topic: which are the best skills to pick early on in the game?
For the Leviathan Axe, one of the best skills you want to get is the Glacial Rake. What it does is it drags your axe through the ground to then create ice shards. These ice shards will strike enemies repeatedly for even more damage and faster Frost buildup.
However, what’s even better is the Serpent’s Snare which is a skill that throws your target to deal massive damage.
What’s even better is that you can use it on weaker enemies to cause Frost explosion on impact. This is pretty handy when dealing with enemy packs as it launches nearby enemies when doing so.
You can make them even better with the game’s skill mod system. This new system will grant you a medal which will improve the more you use a specific skill. You’ll start out at Bronze and then build your way up to Gold.
Once you reached Gold, you can then buy a Mod Token for a specific skill. You will have several options to choose from, such as increasing a skill’s elemental damage, granting you protection while performing it, or increasing your weapon’s charge rate.
Keep in mind that each skill will have its own skill mods, so try to experiment with the system to find out the best options for your build.
Frozen Flame: INFINITE Bones, Fabric & XP Farm Guide – Get Unlimited Resources & Masks Fast
Your crafting problems are over!
Released on November 17, 2022, Frozen Flame is a game that blends Survival Action and RPG. Fans of both genres will already expect levelling up, various biomes and enemies, collectables, and crafting! While part of the genre’s structure, crafting can be difficult if you don’t know how to obtain the necessary resources. Are you having a similar headache? Fret not! Read this guide for some tips and tricks to help you!
INFINITE Bones, Fabric & XP Farm Guide – Get Unlimited Resources & Masks Fast – Frozen Flame
Bones and fabric are two important crafting resources in Frozen Flame. And what if I tell you there’s a way to get as many of those resources as you can get? And that, in the meanwhile, you can also get loads of XP?
Sounds too good to be true? Well, maybe… but you’ll see that it works!
There are two farming locations.
The first and most efficient (and the one that will also give you Masks if you want to add more to your collection) is the Cradle of Keepers, the starting area of the game, where you can farm fabric.
Before leaving your house, equip some weapons to help you: the bone bow and bone staff are good options.
From the southwest portion of the island, you’ll want to fly northwest and find a cave. You can check out the exact location and the cave’s appearance in the screenshots below:
Inside this cave, you’ll find a huge encampment of humanoids as well as the purple mists that spawn Mobs.
The strategy here is to trigger the mob spawn then walk backwards and start killing them with your bow.
However, you don’t want to kill all the enemies! Keep one or two alive, walk further backward and wait until the mist reappears.
This is the sign that a new mob wave is ready to respawn. Go inside the encampment and retreat again, repeating the process of shooting and respawning them until you’re satisfied with the number of corpses littering the cavern’s floor.
Then, kill every enemy and remain inside the encampment. Loot all the corpses, and you’ll be impressed with how much fabric you earn with this simple strategy!
Bones + Fabric Farming
Broken Valley is the second farming spot and the place you go if you need bones and fabric.
First, fast-travel to the first quick-travel spot in the Broken Valley, where you completed the quests for Hornhead. And what you’ll do is travel to a hidden cave underneath the island.
Inside this cave, you’ll find three mobs: a shield bearer and two warlocks. Your goal here is to ignore the shield bearer and kill the two warlocks (be careful with their fire spells!).
Once you kill them, leave the cave, wait a couple of seconds for their mist to respawn, and go back inside, repeating the process.
After a few times, you can go in and quickly loot the fallen enemies (always ignoring the shield bearer) and keep repeating this process for as long as you want (or for as long as your items have durability).
While slower than the Cradle of Keepers cave, this will give you all the bones and fabric you’ll need in the game. So, good farming! Thanks to 04AM for the tricks! In case of any doubt, please watch his video: Frozen Flame INFINITE Bones, Fabric & XP Farm Guide – Get Unlimited Resources & Masks Fast
