The troublesome ravens have returned to God of War Ragnarök. Unlike their 2018 counterparts, these ravens will hand out some useful gear for killing enough of them. Here's a rundown of the rewards and how many pesky green punks you need to take out.
What do you get for killing ravens in God of War Ragnarök?
Killing a set number of ravens grants Kratos the ability to unlock chests under the Raven Tree in the Niflheim Realm. Killing 18 awards a fantastic set of gear, while the remaining three chests will nab some downright nasty attacks.
- Six Ravens: Girdle of Raven Tears Armor
- 12 Ravens: Bracers of Raven Tears Armor
- 18 Ravens: Cuirass of Raven Tears Armor
- 28 Ravens: Breath of Thamur Heavy Runic Attack
- 38 Ravens: Meteoric Slam Heavy Runic Attack
- 48 Ravens: The Finger of Ruin Heavy Runic Attack
The Raven Tears set grants strength, Defense, and Luck heavy boots. The abilities for each piece generally do the same thing: the Cuirass grants a low Luck chance to grant Healing Mist on hitting enemies, and the other two pieces increase the healing from Healthstones, Rage, and Gear. It's an especially potent set for mid-game and can make most encounters trivial. Plus, it doesn't hurt that it's one of the coolest-looking sets in the game.
As for the Runic Attacks, there are three. Breath of Thamur uses the Leviathan Axe, a massive AoE that damages all enemies within a fairly large area. Meteoric Slam uses the Blades of Chaos and is a powerful slam attack that rains down fire in a wide arc, inflicting scattered Burn status. The Finger of Ruin uses the spear and summons a massive tornado that sends enemies tumbling.
