God Of War Ragnarok: How To Get Dwarven Steel [3 Methods]

Learn all the ways to get Dwarven Steel in God of War Ragnarok and how to use it to upgrade your armor to Mid Tier.

Dwarven Steel is one of the resources in God of War Ragnarok that can be used to upgrade the armor of Kratos. Since you will be facing many powerful enemies in mid to late game, it is important always to have the best equipment and weapons to get you through the hectic boss battles. It is also important to keep the weapons and armor sets upgraded as you progress in the game.

Key Takeaways
  • Dwarven Steel is a material that is needed to level up your armor in God of War Ragnarok.
  • These enemies can be encountered by completing the Yggdrasil Rifts found throughout the Realms.
  • You can obtain Dwarven Steel by opening Red chests, so make sure you explore every nook and cranny.
  • Players can purchase 5 Dwarven Steel from the Dwarven Shop after completing the main quest called Creatures of Prophecy.

1. In The Yggdrasil Rifts 

God of War Ragnarok has a lot of Yggdrasil Rifts located almost everywhere. These rifts sometimes have Dwarven Steel for you to loot along with several other items, and if you are lucky, you will even get some rare and legendary items. These rifts can be found in Alfheim, Midgard, Svartalfheim, and Vanaheim.

These Yggdrasil Rifts will hover in the air and give a light blue glow. When the player comes near them and interacts with them, they will send some enemies for you to defeat. These enemies are quite powerful as they are high-level ads. You will need to defeat them in order to get your reward. 

One of the rifts can be found in the Forbidden Sands after you have completed the Reckoning. You need to head to the north of the area and find a rock where you will be able to enter through an easily destroyable wall. After that, you need to defeat any enemies that you come across, and you will be able to find the Yggdrasil Rift in no time.

2. Red Chests 

Another way of getting the Dwarven Steel is to find and open as many red chests as you can. These chests will require you to interact with some items in order to open them.

You will be required to interact with a series of braziers, totems, and bells that are located near the chests in order to unlock them. These red chests contain a lot of different items, including shattered ruins and even Dwarven Steel. So, if you see any stone chests giving out a red glow, make sure to check them out. You will find many of these throughout your adventures, and sometimes, they can be found surrounded by the blue brambles as well. 

Furthermore, these chests are also hidden away in certain regions of the game where there are beaten paths. The more you progress in God of War Ragnarok, the more you will find these chests. When you reach the mid to late game, this is where you will find most of these, and sometimes you will even get four more in the same place.  

3. Dwarven Shop

Dwarven Steel can also be purchased. However, in order to purchase it, you need to complete the story quest. After that, you will be able to obtain 5 bundles of Dwarven Steel in exchange for four 2500 Hacksilver. 

These bundles can be obtained from the Dwarven shop in God of War Ragnarok. You need to complete the Creatures Of Prophecy, which is the 13th Path Story Quest, to be able to buy it.
