Improve armor and items to the max

Improve the Leviathan ax to the maximum level (6)

To reach the maximum level of the ax, it will be necessary to get the last frozen flame in the kingdom of Niflheim. For this, you must complete a missions passed by Sindri (collect 500 echoes of mist) and then release access to an area in the Ivaldi workshop.

In this area there will be a chest where it is possible to collect a hazy fog of Niflheim and then produce the frozen flame with the dwarven blacksmith. You will need 5, 000 (five thousand) echoes of mist to open the ark. The ax at maximum level will help a lot in the battles against the Valkyries.

Always carry Stones of Resurrection

There are three types of resurrection stone that can be purchased in the store: the first (green) revives Kratos with little life; the second (blue) revives with a significant amount of life. The third (purple) revives Kratos with the bar full of fury. Battles will always be very difficult, so the resurrection stone may be your last option to gain a little more time and finish the job.

Light all the pyres in the towers of the kingdoms

By lighting all the tower pearls in Lake of the Nine and reading the runes carved into them, you will receive a legendary spell called Valkyrie Ruin. This spell reduces the damage of Valkyrie attacks by 5% and will be extremely useful in battles.

Notice the attack patterns

All Valkyries have practically the same attack patterns. However, each of them has a unique and differentiated attack - fire, ice or special air attack, for example. Caution, patience, and observance of standards are paramount in knowing how to dodge, defend or strike at the right time. When you realize an opportunity, take advantage to collect the healing stones that will be dropped during the battle.

Use Runic Attacks and Talisman

Light Runic (L1 + R1) and Heavy (L1 + R2) attacks give a lot of damage and can stun the Valkyries at key moments in the battle. Whenever you see an opportunity, use them to your advantage. In addition, make use of Atreus's special attack (press and hold the square) and also the equipped Talisman (L1 + circle). Atreus's special attack, as well as his energized arrows and the Talisman, if well used, greatly increase the success rate in fights.
