One of the more Rare materials in the game is the Asgardian Ingot, and it will be challenging to obtain. However, with a little skill, you can defeat the Valkaryies to acquire precious resources. The Asgardian Ingot is more of a Mid to Late-game item and can upgrade your Armor to a higher level. It is very useful and is a requirement to upgrade most Armor. 

You can Obtain it in a number of ways, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find. However, there it is not abundant resources, so try to use them carefully.

2. Beast Bones

One resource which is abundant in God of War Ragnarok is the Beast Bones. Much like all of the resources in the Crafting Materials In God Of War Ragnarok List, Beast Bones are also used to craft and upgrade Armor. They are quite common, and you can easily farm them. 

One of the main ways to get Beast Bones is to defeat Beast-class creatures in the game. Defeating Beast-class creatures such as Gradungr and Wyvern is a confirmed way to get Beast Bones. Once you defeat Beast-Class creatures, they should drop beast bones on the ground, and you can collect them. You can also get them from Red and Legendary chests, but that’s quite rare and not a guaranteed way to obtain them. 

3. Beast Scraps

Much Like the Beast Bones, the Beast Scraps can be found throughout the game. Also, you can use these to upgrade items for both characters, such as Kratos Relics and even Atreus’s Bow. So these are very useful and lucky for you. They are as easy to get the Beast bones so that you can collect both of them together. 

Beating animals of the Beast class in the game is one of the primary ways to obtain Beast Scraps. They are also occasionally found in Red and Legendary chests, but they are not always to be found there. It is known that defeating creatures of the Beast class, such as Wyvern and Gradungr, will provide Beast Scraps. Beast-Class monsters should drop scraps on the ground when you defeat them so you can collect them.
