God of War III guide – Eyes, Feathers, Horns and Godly Possessions

Everything you need to beef up Kratos, score more Trophies and attain ultimate power


Above: This Kratos is sad because he couldn’t find all the hidden chests

Luckily, we’ve got the locations of all the eyes, feathers and horns you’ll need to reach full power and smack down Zeus – and the Godly Possessions that’ll enable you to go beyond that. What’s more, those who follow this guide will unlock five Trophies that are difficult to get otherwise.

(As a side note, God of War III seems to be unusually forgiving with its power-ups; not only does it only take three “sacrifices” to boost your meters instead of five, but we found plenty of hidden chests even after we’d maxed Kratos out. So it’s possible that, even if you miss one or two of the items on this list, you can make them up later. In that case, consider this guide the fastest way to reach full power.)

God of War III’s opening battle doesn’t have much to collect, seeing as Kratos hasn’t even gone through his Mega Man-esque powering down yet. However, it’s where you’ll find the game’s very first Godly Possession, and it’s almost as easy to find as it is to overlook.

Once you’ve reached Gaia’s Heart, there’s a quick, relatively obvious puzzle that calls for you to move a giant block from one end of the room to the other. Don’t do that just yet. Instead, climb up the vines on the right side of the room.

Keep climbing up and to the right, and soon you’ll reach a ledge. Pull yourself up, and you’ll see a nest that may or may not have been where Zeus spent his early years, sheltered by Gaia against the wrath of his baby-eating father, Cronos.

Once you’re up there, you’ll notice something sparkling. Grab it, and Zeus’ Eagle is yours.

Like all Godly Possessions, Zeus’ Eagle is more than just a trinket. Once you’ve beaten the game, you can use it to grant yourself infinite Rage of Sparta, which is to say it’ll almost make you invincible. One catch, though: turning it on, as with all Godly Possessions, will shut off your ability to earn Trophies during that entire play-through.
