Favors are the side quests in God of War and reward some nifty equipment. This God Of War Favors Guide will tell you where to find each of the different Favors in the game, how to go about completing them and details on any rewards you receive for doing so.
Favors are very similar to side quests. There’s tasks scattered throughout the game, often given to you by other people you encounter. Each Favor has several objectives and often rewards you with new equipment such as gold and hilts for your axe.
God Of War Favors Guide
You get this Favor by helping any of the ghosts surrounding the Shores of Nine. I found it on the Iron Cove in the South West corner of the lake, by lighting the brazier there. Once you have the Favor several objective markers appear on your map, you need to help each of the spirits. Simply head to the different objective markers and light the braziers.
Once completed you get a Common Pommel, 1x Corrupted Remnant and 1880 Experience Points.
You start this quest whenever you discover Muspelheim Ciphers in the world. I found the first one on the island marked above, up a chain and inside a chest.
The second cipher piece can be found on the Cliffs of Raven island to the South East corner of the lake. Get the boy to climb up and drop the chain. It’s in a chest above.
The 3rd piece can be found during the story when you enter the tower and start the objective “Pass through the tower and the caves”. After the first poison section, where you have to freeze the things to progress, you’ll find a chest. It’s inside that chest.
The final Muspelheim Cipher can be found inside the Witches Cave. You need to progress through the story until you have to return to the Witch with the head. Head back to the Witch and blow up the red wall blocking an exit. You’ll find the chest in here with the final piece.
Once completed the boy learns the Muspelheim language and unlocks a new realm. You are not able to complete this Favor when you first get it, you must progress through the story far enough first. Will update with more details soon.
You can find this Favor by speaking to a spirit on Stone Falls. You need to destroy the clasp holding the bridge and cross to speak with him. Use the nearby wheel to open the huge double doors and venture through. Head to Thor’s Statue and throw your Axe at the chains to destroy the statue.
Speak with the Dwarf at his shop at the location above. He will ask you to find Brok’s Friend. Head into the mines and follow it through. You will have to defeat a Souleater at the end. Wait for it to open its chest and then throw your Axe into his heart. Finish it off, loot the ring, Favor complete.
Once complete you receive a Rare Pommel and 3290 Experience Points.
In Veithurgard to the East. South of where you must destroy Thor’s Statue. You need to climb some stairs and avoid the dragon breath attacks. Once you get closer it will stop and you will unlock a Favor to free the dragon by breaking the chains. Once you find the chains you need to hit them several times until they actually break. It’s a simple enough Favor, run to each one and destroy it.
Once completed you get a Rare Enchantment, a Dragon Tear and 615 Experience Points.
You must have completed Fafnirs Hoard Favor first. Meet with one of the brothers at his shop in the Council of Valkyries. You must progress through the story until the World Serpent helps you lower the water level further, after you revive the head. Head to the objective, clear the area and leave. Easy Favor.
You get a Legendary Axe Pommel.
This is the same as the Realm of Fire Favor. You need to locate 4 different Niflheim Language Ciphers to successfully learn the language and obtain the ability to travel to a new realm. The first one can be found after you lower the water level again. There’s a chest on Alfheim Tower. You need to clear some rubble by blowing up the red orbs. Chest is at the end.
The second Cipher can be found on the on Ruins of the Ancient. It’s inside a chest. Small island, easy to find it.
The third one can be found near the top of the mountain. When you return to the mountain for the Journey mission, Return to the Summit, continue up to near the top of the mountain. Exit the door near the Dwarf shop and it’s in the chest in the next area.
On the shore of Mason’s Channel boat dock there’s a spirit. Speak with the spirit and he will ask you to return three bones belonging to his dead lover. Head to each of the objective areas and search for the bones.
You get Tyr’s Waist Armor Recipe, Tyr’s Offering and 1880 Experience Points.
You get Dwarven Armor Set recipe and a Runic Attack.
