One way to enjoy your God of War Ragnarok gameplay is by indulging in other interesting in-game quests. Deviating from the main storyline in GoW helps a gamer explore hidden regions. While your game character is travelling through the nine realms, there are high chances that you can come across in-game items or relics that you boost your winnability in combat while using either Kratos or Atreus. One of the most important relics in GoW is the Mystical Heirloom. In the course of this article, we will take you through a guide on how the Mystical Heirloom works and how to get it. Without further mouthing, let us delve in.
Uses Of Mystical Heirloom Do In God Of War Ragnarok
Unlike other interesting Relics in God of War, the Mystical Heirloom cannot help you to win a fight, however, it can help you to get to a fight. Worth noting is that there are 4 Trolls in the GoW game that are like statues. They have been imprisoned in stone for centuries. However, with the help of the Mystical Heirloom, they can be awakened. None of these statues is marked on the in-game map, but the Heirloom helps to uncover them.
Most GoW gamers jump to the conclusion that the Mystical Heirloom is utterly useless and then opt for other in-game relics. What most gamers don’t come to terms with is that the Heirloom can awaken hidden bosses in the game, so that you can fight for their loot.
How To Find Mystical Heir Loom
In a bid to find the Mystical Heirloom, the gamer must have completed Chapter 10- Forging Destiny. Then proceed to unlock a new item to open pathways, return to Lake of Nine, and then travel south of Tyr’s Temple along a wall that is large and icy. This large icy wall is above the path that leads to the Lost Treasury.
Next up, look for a yellow wind vent that is in the ice block that breaks down a destructible environment. With Kratos as your game character, throw your new tool at the ice block and detonate it to open up a small crevice.
Inside the small crevice towards the left, the gamer will find the Mystical Heirloom alongside the body of a dwarf and a Lore Scroll.
How To Use The Mystical Heirloom
The description of the Mystical Heirloom in GoW indicates that it does not have a practical application in combat. When Kratos wants to use it he will have to bang the Mystical Heirloom on his wrist. The Mystical Heirloom has a short countdown of 16 seconds. It is within these short seconds that the Mystical Heirloom will be used to awaken sleeping statues for a boss fight and loot recovery.
It is important to point out that the Relic states that it “awakens something dominant”.
The Heirloom is used to awaken statues that can be found within the different realms of Midgard. These statues come as Trolls with their big weapons which are located near a Lore Marker. You can use the Heirloom to wake up these slumbering Trolls and indulge them in a boss fight. When a gamer defeats these Trolls, their game characters will earn Slumber Stones. These Slumber Stones can be used to unlock a Crafting Labor used in creating the Steinbjorn Armor at any Dwarven Shop in any realm.
The 3 Locations Of Slumbering Trolls In God Of War Ragnarok
Below, we have elucidated the locations of the Slumbering Trolls in God of War Ragnarok, and where you find them to use the Mystical Heirloom.
- Blodugr Steinn
This Troll location can be found in the Derelict Outpost, Midgard. Right from where you find the Mystical Heirloom, this is the closest Troll location. All you need to do with your game character is to travel west at the edge of the Lake of Nine to get to the Derelict Outpost. The gamer will then find a giant troll statue waiting as you go through the gap to enter the ruins.
- Bjarg Stormr
Another interesting Troll location where the Heirloom is effective is the Bjarg Stormr. You can find this Troll at the far northwestern edge of the Alfheim Forbidden Sands. When you free Hafgufa from its prison, you have one chance of reaching this location once the sandstorm has cleared. Unlike other Trolls in these realms in Midgard, this Troll has the capacity to blind the game character with ash and summoned rocks.
- Golrab of the Ashes and Frost
This troll is located at Noatun’s Garden, Vanaheim. This location is home to not one, but two asleep Trolls. Combating two trolls might appear to be a challenge, in addition, to avoid getting blinded. One of the Trolls has the capacity to imbue you with frost, while the other can use flame. Imagine being hit with a freezing and burning status while trying to beat these two trolls.
