God of War (2018) Guide: How to Get Smoldering Ember

Find out how to unlock Muspelheim and collect smoldering embers in this quick guide to God of War (2018).

Muspelheim Armor in God of War is one of the most efficient armors in the game. However, in order to forge this great armor, you need to collect a required amount of smoldering embers -- an item that can be obtained only in Muspelheim.

If you want to know how to get the necessary number of smoldering embers in Muspelheim, and eventually forge the desired armor, then follow our step-by-step guide below.

How to Find Smoldering Embers in God of War

Step 1: Unlock Muspelheim

In order to unlock Muspelheim, you need to collect four of seven possible Cipher pieces. These can be found in chests scattered all over the world. Below you will find the locations of these chests:

  1. Passage from Lake of Nine to Foothills
  2. Cliffs of the Raven
  3. Forgotten Caverns
  4. Witch's Cave
  5. The Mountain Summit at Mystic Gateway
  6. Alfheim
  7. Muspelheim Tower

When you collect at least four Ciphers, Atreus will be able to read them, and you will be granted with the Muspelheim Travel Rune, which unlocks the realm of Muspelheim at Tyr's Temple.

Step 2: Complete Muspelheim Trials

When you enter the Realm of Fire (Muspelheim), you can do challenges that stand in your way, which mainly consist of combat trials of various difficulties. This is the point in the game when you will start earning smoldering embers.

These challenges mostly consist of combat trials of various difficulties, so be well prepared. Some are so difficult that you will not be able to finish them. But if you already have enough embers, you can go back to Brok's Shop and forge your armor.

Here is the list of rewards for each trial:

  1. +3 Smoldering Ember and +1938 Hacksilver
  2. +5 Smoldering Ember and +1828 Hacksilver
