GOW Ragnarok Transmog: How To Unlock & Change Appearance

Learn how you can change the appearance of an armor set using the transmog feature.

In God of War Ragnarok, you get the luxury of collecting plenty of armor that is scattered all across the map. Some of the armor sets are hidden away at different spots, while others can be unlocked by completing different tasks. Nevertheless, the game has an amazing feature, thanks to which you can change the appearance of your armor without losing any of its stats. Today, we are going to discuss the God of War Ragnarok transmog process in detail.

Key Takeaways
  • The Transmog feature in God of War Ragnarok enables you to replicate any armor’s appearance for your currently equipped armor.
  • Unlock this feature by leveling an entire armor set to level 9.
  • Obtain upgrade materials and speak to Sindri at the forge to accomplish this.
  • After meeting the requirements, press the touchpad and navigate to the armor tab.
  • If completed, you’ll find the option to apply appearance by holding the square button.

In God of War 2018, players did get the luxury of using different armor sets that provided them protection, but they couldn’t customize them. Because of this, players often had to wear armor they didn’t find visually appealing only because of its stats. However, this has changed in God of War Ragnarok, as the developers solved this issue.

How To Unlock Transmog

You need to follow these steps:

  1. Make Significant Progress:
    • Progress through the game until you reach a point where you can access the transmog feature.
  2. Reach Max Level with Armor Set:
    • You can transmog an armor set after you have reached the maximum level with it.
    • Each piece of armor needs to be upgraded to level 9.
  3. Gather Resources:
    • Gather the necessary resources required to upgrade each piece of armor to level 9.
    • Resources include Hacksilver and other materials specific to each armor set.
  4. Upgrade Armor at Huldra Brother’s Workshop:
    • Visit the Huldra Brother’s Workshop with the required resources in your inventory.
    • Ask them to upgrade your armor set to level 9.
  5. Access Transmog Feature:
    • Once you have upgraded the armor set to level 9, you will unlock the transmog feature for that specific armor set.
    • You can now change the appearance of your armor using the transmog feature.
  6. Repeat for Other Armor Sets:

It’s important to note that upgrading each piece of armor to level 9 can be time-consuming and resource-intensive. However, once you have unlocked the transmog feature, you’ll have more flexibility in customizing the appearance of your character’s armor.

How To Change The Appearance Of An Armor 

After you have managed to level up your entire armor set to level 9, you can change its appearance without visiting any merchant or NPC on the map. Instead, you can do it straight from the menu that lets you see all of your armor sets.

To access the menu, press the touchpad of your controller and then access the Armor tab. If your armor set is at level 9, you will see an option named “Edit Appearance.” Press the square button to access this feature, and you can then proceed to change the overall looks of your armor.

After you have made the changes, you will be able to find detailed information about your current armor set in the same menu. Thanks to this, you can learn about the name of the equipped armor along with the one you stole the look from.

Overall, the transmog feature is pretty amazing, as it allows you to get creative. However, it isn’t something that you can access during the early stages of the game, as it will take you quite some time to take even a single armor to level 9. But considering you won’t have many armor sets in the early stages, you won’t need this feature anyways. 

What Is Transmog Feature In GOW Ragnarok

The term “transmog” comes from the word transmogrification, which refers to changing the appearance of something. The purpose of this system in God of War Ragnarok is to allow players to change the appearance of their armor sets to whatever they like.

The best part about the transmog system is that it helps you change your armor’s appearance without losing any stats. Take the Darkdale armor set for an example. It is a powerful armor set that offers amazing added effects, such as increasing the rate at which Rage is gained, granting you the Enraged Slayer battle skill, and much more. However, you might not find it visually appealing compared to the other armor sets in your inventory.

This is where the transmog feature comes in. What you can do is use the feature to change the appearance of the Darkdale armor set to some other one from your inventory. In other words, you can give it a brand-new look. Don’t worry; you will still have access to all the added effects that come with the Darkdale armor.

This was everything you need to know about the God of War Ragnarok transmog system. If you are just starting out in the game, you can read our guide on some combat tips, as they can help you progress quickly.
