God Of War (2018) Complete Shrine Locations Guide

Jotnar shrines dot the landscape of God of War, telling the tales of epic giant warriors -- use this guide to find all 11 of them and unlock a The Truth trophy!

Sony wants you to worship at the altar of God of War so badly that they commissioned a painter to craft a 50-foot-tall shrine to the game in Berlin! After having finally played the game, I can't say I disagree with that enthusiasm.

That's not the only God of War shrine around, though, as there are 11 Jotnar shrines scattered across the game that tell the epic history of the world's mighty giants. 

Having trouble finding them all? This guide will show how to find all 11 God of War shrines to make this quest a bit easier on Kratos and his tag-a-long son.

Wildwoods Shrine

After solving the first puzzle where you lift the chain and then freeze the gears with your axe, head left (which will prompt your son to yell at you that the deer went the other direction) and climb up the chain. Go up the stairs and smash the wall to the find the Sköll and Hati shrine.

The Riverpass Shrine

In the section with the Nornir chest and the two-part bridge (found by climbing down the chain after jumping down the ledge), head to the left and jump up a ledge. Keep to the left along the corridor and you should find the Hrungnir shrine.

Veithurgard Shrine

In the area with the bare-bones wooden structures, head up the stone steps to where the dragon is located and hang a left. Keep going left so that you cross underneath two bridges, and then head right up some stone steps.

Keep following the path until you jump across to a stone bridge and see a big, sealed temple door. Break the seals, and just inside you should see the Skadi shrine.

Path to the Mountain Shrine

After throwing open the big double doors and climbing down a wood ladder, cross the bridge and hang a left. Break through the wall with your axe to find the Ymir shrine.

Shores of Nine/Cliffs of the Raven Shrine

Traveling across the Lake of Nine bridge, head through the giant black doors (with the glowing purple runes up above) and take a left. Jump over the broken stones to find the Jörmungandr shrine.

Alfheim Shrine

Directly in front of the Temple of Light, go down the right-hand stone path to easily find the Groa shrine sitting at the bottom of the stairs.

Lookout Tower Shrine

When you land your boat and have to climb up several sets of stone cliffs, eventually you will zipline down a rope with your axe. The Thrym shrine is right after you land and before you continue down the path.

Tyr's Temple Shrine

Inside Tyr's Temple, you will have to shift a metal control on the ground to take the elevator down to a lower level. When you reach the bottom, turn around to find the Bergelmir shrine directly behind you.

Thamur's Corpse Shrine

At the north end of the Lake of the Nine area, you can use the magic chisel to open a double-door hidden chamber. Just inside those doors you will see the Thamur shrine.

Konunsgard Shrine

You will need to have the Hail to the King dwarven favor to find the Starkadr shrine. After using the favor to enter the stronghold, go up the stairs and take a right to see the shrine.

Muspelheim Shrine

After collecting the four cyphers to gain access to Muspelheim, just to the left of the mystic gateway stands the final Surtr shrine to complete this quest.

Reading the final shrine unlocks The Truth trophy (which is currently rated as Ultra Rare but will likely drop down as more players find them all).
