The newly added Valhalla DLC in God of War: Ragnarok lets players play as Kratos once again, now in the eponymous location in Norse Mythology. With Mimir present, Kratos takes on a profoundly personal journey while facing dangerous foes across a reimagination of the Nine Realms.

The gameplay of this DLC is inspired by roguelites, so it has crucial features that have made this genre so enjoyable. To survive and endure in Valhalla, you'll need to upgrade Kratos' stats as he does each run in the game.

So, keep on reading below on how to upgrade Kratos' stats in God of War: Ragnarok Valhalla.

How to upgrade Kratos' stats in God of War: Ragnarok Valhalla

Stats can be permanently upgraded by using the Tablet of Reflection and temporarily by finding Stat Glyphs around Valhalla.

To permanently upgrade Kratos' stats, you will need a certain amount of Mastery Seals. These Mastery Seals are located all across the Nine Realms in Valhalla. You can find them in chests and vases and even by defeating enemies.

Additionally, completing mastery challenges and labours will also reward you with Mastery Seals.These challenges vary, like getting a certain number of kills with your weapons, using certain shields or Rage, and finding Relics. After you do those, you will get the Mastery Seals necessary for upgrading.

If you have a lot of Master Seals, you can upgrade certain stats two or three times. The higher your difficulty is in Valhalla, the better chance you have of getting more Mastery Seals. So, if you want to fully upgrade Kratos' stats quickly, then go for the higher difficulty only if you're skilled enough.

To temporarily upgrade your stats while you are on a run in Valhalla, you'll need to find Stat Glyphs. These are essentially chests with a triangle-like symbol you can find. Certain doors marked with these will lead to these chests, and with that, you can temporarily boost your stats. If you die, however, your stats will reset, and you will start with the stats you had when you started your previous run.

So, that is everything you need to know about upgrading your stats in God of War: Ragnarok Valhalla. We also have guides on getting Dreamshade in the main game as well as the Easter Eggs and on the New Game Plus mode, so be sure to check those out as well.
