In God of War 4, the Niflheim Mist armor, also known as Ivaldi’s Mist armor, is arguably the strongest sheathing Kratos can adorn. Like any ideal armor, it boosts the god of war’s stats and provides health regeneration powers.
It’s an advantage that comes in handy, especially when Kratos is about to fight powerful bosses and gods. Additionally, the Niflheim Mist armor is helpful for players who’re braving the game in advanced difficulty modes like Give Me a Challenge or Give Me God of War.
Unfortunately, obtaining this particular armor set isn’t a simple task. You’ll have to explore the Niflheim realm and overcome difficulties while a dense, poisonous, and damaging mist surrounds you. But the upside is that it’s worth it.
To get the God of War Niflheim Mist armor, you’ll have to unlock Ivaldi’s workshop, collect the pieces of his Rusted armor and take them back to Sindri Huldra. He’ll build it into a Mist armor of your choice in exchange for some resources.
What resources do you need to successfully obtain Niflheim Mist armor?
Apart from Ivaldi’s Rusted armor, the resources you’ll need and ways to acquire them are as follows:
You can set sail with Atreus to collect Aegir’s gold from the Lake of Nine, which you can later exchange for Hacksilver in Sindri and Brok’s shop. Selling unutilized artifacts from your inventory is another effective way of farming it.
Break objects like chests, pots, barrels, buckets, or crates and make sure to pick up the loot from slain enemies.
II. Mist Echoes
Mist Echoes are found only in Niflheim.
You can find them in various types of chests within Ivaldi’s workshop. Look out for the red and legendary chests as they contain relatively higher amounts of Mist Echoes.
III. Niflheim Alloy
This alloy is found only in the Niflheim maze. The most reliable way of collecting it is by doing multiple runs in the realm, killing and looting enemies, and opening the legendary chests, preferably after the common ones.
Where to find the Niflheim Mist armor in God of War?
To find the God of War Niflheim Mist armor, you’ll have to find the key to Ivaldi’s workshop and travel to Niflheim using the Realm travel room.
Before using the Realm travel room, you need to unlock it by collecting the four pieces of the Niflheim cipher. You can grab these ciphers from purple chests available throughout the campaign. But, the easiest way to find them is by completing the Return to The Summit mission.
Once you’ve collected all the four ciphers, use the Realm travel room to travel to Niflheim, where Sindri Huldra will be waiting for you. He’ll inform you about Ivaldi’s locked workshop and propose to make you a key in exchange for 500 Mist Echoes.
After accepting the wager, you’ve to move past Sindri. Then kill enemies, open chests to gather Mist Echoes, and repeat the process to gather an adequate number of resources.
However, remain cautious because if you expire, you’ll lose all the Mist Echoes you’ve gathered.
Types of Niflheim Mist Armours
In God of War, the Niflheim Mist armor consists of three parts, namely, a chest plate, gauntlets, and a war belt. Following are the three types of Niflheim Mist armors:
I. Deadly Mist Armour
This type of Mist armor provides the maximum boost for strength, runic, vitality, and defense stats, along with a constant amount of health regeneration.
The Deadly Mist armor is the best set in God of War though it requires a lot of resources to build and upgrade. It also slows down the harmful effects of the Niflheim mist.
II. Endless Mist Armour
This Mist armor provides no runic boost but increases strength, defense, and vitality stats. The Endless Mist armor provides lesser health regeneration benefits.
III. Cursed Mist Armour
The Cursed Mist armor provides a bonus for all stats apart from vitality. This Mist armor requires the least amount of resources to build and upgrade. Hence, its health regeneration properties are minimum.
Every piece of the Niflheim armor will start at level seven, and you can upgrade it up to level nine. Keep in mind that these armors require a lot of time and effort to upgrade. Thus, it’s wise to stick to one kind of Mist armor throughout a campaign.
