How to find the God of War Niflheim Mist armor, which heals you as you fight

God of War Niflheim Mist armor

With armor sets such as the God of War Niflheim Mist Armor, beauty is definitely in the eye of the gear-holder, yet looks aside this is undoubtedly one of the game’s most useful upgrades. Like any good armor set, this of course boosts our Greek god’s stats, but more importantly the Mist Armor also heals Kratos over time. This is a perk that becomes especially useful for those braving the God of War story the second time around on the far tougher New Game +.

As you’d probably expect then, nabbing such a prolific armor set doesn’t come easily. Before you can kit Kratos out in the God of War Niflheim Mist Armor, you’ll have to locate and travel to Niflheim and then battle your way through hordes of monsters and a haze of poisonous mist. It’s not easy being Kratos, is it? Yet with God of War: Ragnarok on the horizon and Kratos’ adventure free to all subscribers with the PS Plus Collection games, there’s never been a better time to brave the challenges of the gods. Here are the top tips to help you survive nefarious Niflheim with our handy  guide below.

Where to find the Niflheim Mist armor in God of War

So how do you get it? Well first you all need 4 pieces of the Niflheim Cipher, which unlocks the ability to travel to Niflheim in the Realm Travel Room. You can find these ciphers in purple chests throughout the game but the best way is to start the mission ‘Return to the Summit’ in the main campaign to find the first part of the cipher and then follow the story to find three more chests and complete it. 

When you have all the chests you can use the Ream travel room to visit Niflheim where you’ll find Sindri waiting for you. Speak to him and he’ll tell you all about Ivalidi’s Workshop where the Mist armour lives and offer to make you a key to the workshop for 500 Mist Echoes. Next up is the easy part: head past Sindri into the first area and kill everything so you can open the chests and get the Mist Echoes inside. You might have to rinse and repeat this a few times to get enough, and be careful because if you die, you lose everything you’ve picked up.

Once the workshop's unlocked you’ll find the pieces of Ivaldi’s Rusted Armour, which you can take back to Sindri to make into new armour you can wear and upgrade. It takes a lot of resources to fully upgrade a set so it’s best to pick one and stick with it, especially as a matching set has an even higher health regen effect. Go with The Deadly Mist set for a good all round stat boost, The Endless Mist set if you want more Vitality and Cursed Mist for extra Runic power. 

In terms of how to get the resources you need, you can get the Mist Echoes, Haze Weaves, Niflheim Alloy and Aesirbane by running the Niflheim maze and getting out alive. You’ll also have to do some Muspelheim challenges to get Smouldering Embers and Greater Crest of Flame, and visit the Light Elf Outpost and Stone Falls in Midgard respectively to get Pristine Scales of the Realm and Pristine Dust of the Realm. All of that can be tracked the resource part of the menus so now you just have to get it all.
