The Draupnir Spear is Kratos’s brand-new weapon, and it is useful to reach spots you wouldn’t have reached otherwise. The Spear is strong and has a number of uses, but it can be stronger. You can attach gear to your spear to make it stronger. Hind of the Nine Realms is one such attachment available in the game, and it is believed to be the strongest. 

The Hind Of the Nine Realms has the ability to slow down time literally. You aren’t affected by the slow effect much and can continue to beat down the barely moving enemy who is defensiveness against your wraith. The Hind can be upgraded to increase its stats and make your spear even stronger. Moreover, with the Hind’s ability and stats boost, you should be able to take down anyone who stands in your path.

Although the stats of the Hind speak for themselves, the ability is where the Hind truly shines. The perk of the Hind of the nine realms is known as Realm Shift. Realm Shift is the Ability through which you slow down your enemies, rendering them defenseless.

Moreover, the ability will give you a huge advantage even against the strongest opponents. To activate the Realm shift, you will have to trigger Maelstrom at the moment your Maelstrom is full. That should allow you to slow down all enemies near you and unleash your fury. 

Stats And Upgrades

The Hind of the Nine realms is at a base level of six when you first attach it to your weapon. You can upgrade it all the way to level 9, making it insanely strong. The upgrades, however, are not free and will cost you a bit of some precious resources. However, the upgrades are truly worth it. 

To obtain the Hind of the Nine Realms in God of War Ragnarok, you must defeat the two Berserker Spirits. Once you have done that, you will receive the Hind of the Nine Realms as a reward. You can use the equipment for your Draupnir Spear. It will have the base stats of 16 Runic, vitality as well as a cooldown at level 6. All stats are the same and also stay the same as they increase with each upgrade.
