God of War: How to Get the Gauntlet of Ages

The gauntlet of Ages in God of War is a versatile Talisman with much to offer. Here's how to get it and where to find its Enchantments.

The God of War Gauntlet of Ages is a handy Talisman that lets Kratos stack Enchantments for a number of bonus effects. Obtaining this item is easy enough, but you’ll have to put some effort in if you want the most out of it. Obtaining rare items to upgrade the glove and slot more Enchantments in is a bit more laborious.

This God of War guide will tell you everything you need to know about the Gauntlet of Ages in God of War, as well as shed some light on its Enchantments. 

How to Get the Gauntlet of Ages in God of War

How to get the Gauntlet of Ages is straightforward enough on its own. After you complete The Sickness main story quest, which is roughly halfway through the main plot, speak with Sindri and take on the Family Business side quest. You’ll face off against a Traveler at the end of the quest, and defeating it gets you the Gauntlet of Ages.

The thing is, the Gauntlet isn’t very useful on its own, aside from tossing enemies back a bit. You’ll need Enchantments to get the most out of the Gauntlet.
