God of War Talismans Guide

For a detailed guide on Atreus and Kratos Armor, be sure to refer to our Armor Guide by heading over to the page.

God of War Talismans

There exists a variety of Talismans and each possesses its own perks and boosts. They can be either found, earned or crafted. You need to either defeat bosses, look around for legendary chests or collect items to craft them. Now while a few of these Talismans can be crafted, the majority is earned by in-game progress.

The sad thing is you can only have one Talisman equipped at any time in God of War. They will usually give you a boost in a certain stat and a special bonus. They do have a cooldown before they can be used again, so remember to time them in order to get the max out of them.

Let us go ahead, look at each Talisman individually, and see the levels, resources and their locations.

Also, be sure to check out our Enchantments Guide by heading over to the link for more help on all types of Enchantments in the game.

The following are a few special talismans that can greatly help in the game if you find them towards the start of the game. Most of these, you will be able to find within the first 4-5 hours of the game. It is best that you find them as soon as you can to make an easy sailing from then on.

The Golden Talisman of Protection

This talisman has the ability to heal you faster than you would otherwise. After being hit by an attack, this talisman begins to heal you instantly and at a vigorous pace.

It also increases the defense of the shield. While you are blocking with the shield, this talisman will increase your defense stat making it easier to block strong attacks and deflect the weaker ones.

However, the most applicable use of this talisman is that it lengthens the parrying window after you successfully deflect an attack. While using this talisman, you will not have to make a timely encroachment instantly after the deflection. Instead, the talisman will allow you to strike back after the deflection without having to hit the button at the precise timing.


You will find this talisman in the Lake of the Nine. However, you will first have to unlock the temple amidst the lake.

To find the talisman, go to the Stone Falls which is an area in the northeast part of the temple. In the storyline, you have to come here to access Veithurgard, but there also is a hidden area in the temple.

In Stone Falls, you will have to solve a puzzle to open the door across the bridge. After having opened the door, knock down the bridge and get to the door that leads back to the Revenant Arena. In the arena, you will now be able to open another door to your right where you will find the talisman inside a legendary chest.

Amulet of Kvasir
This talisman grants a passive ability called the Realm Shift. This essentially allows you to slow down time when you successfully dodge an attack.

There is a temporary slowdown of time when you dodge an attack which allows you to launch a counter attack and seriously damage your opponent. This talisman is especially useful against Valkyries later on in the game.


You will be able to find this talisman once you have unlocked Alfheim.

When you are exploring the Alfheim, you will eventually come across the Light Elf Sanctuary. There you will have to find the Realm Tear past the crank gate. Having found it, continue across the bridge made of roots. There you will be able to see your start point for the area.

Break the roots with an axe throw to make a cave appear. Drop down into it and go along to reach a room with a wheel crank. Once there, solve the puzzle to make the legendary chest appear. In it, you will find the Amulet of Kvasir.

Shattered Gauntlet of Ages

This is a very useful talisman that unleashes a wave of damage that stuns all enemies for a while. This talisman comes in handy when you encounter a hoard of enemies. Along with that, it also has 3 enchantment slots so you can make a hell of a Talisman out of it.


You will find this talisman on the Family Business mission.
