How To Get Nar’s Cup In God Of War Ragnarok

Learn everything there is to know about the crafting material called Nar's Cup in GOW Ragnarok.

Story Highlights
  • There are tons of crafting components in GOW Ragnarok that will require players to hunt them down while exploration
  • An exception is the Nar's Cup, a special crafting component needed to craft a relic known as the Hilt of Tyrfing
  • The material can only be found by defeating a boss fight who is found in the game's main questlines towards the mid to late-game events
  • The boss fight is primarily a buffed up version of a major enemy you encounter in the game and can be taken down with relative ease

Besides Asgardian Ingot, Nar’s Cup is another rare crafting material in God Of War Ragnarok that you will need in order to craft one of the best relics called Hilt of Tyrfing. It is worth stating that you will need the Hilt of Tyrfing in order to obtain the Collector Trophy for the game, which is required for 100 percent completion.

The Nar’s Cup specifically is dropped by a boss fight called Blatonn during one of the late-game main quests in GOW Ragnarok. We will try to keep everything spoiler free but be warned, the boss itself is mostly a reskin of one of the enemies you encounter in the game.

As shown in the image above, the location of the Blatonn boss fight, which will drop the Nar’s Cup, is located in the Abandoned Village area in the realm of Vanaheim. You will first need to dock at the Western Barri Woods boat site and make your way through the area until you reach the fight itself.

However, the important detail here is that the boss will only be available during the thirteenth main quest of the game, called the Creatures Of Prophecy. The quest will essentially involve you battling through tons of enemies with 3 different boss fights in between the quest until the end, and one of these three will be Blatonn. So in case you were planning to go here early, the Nar’s Cup will, unfortunately, be only available via the questline.

The Blatonn boss fight is pretty straightforward enough as it involves you fighting a Wulver who is beefed up to become a boss-type foe.

Here are some strategies to emerge victorious:

  1. Parrying Claw Swipes: Master the timing to parry the boss’s fast claw swipes. With precise timing, you can parry effectively, especially with the Dauntless Shield, which can quickly fill his Stun Bar.
  2. Evading Attacks: Evade the boss’s strikes, particularly during the first half of the fight. Be wary of red ring indicators signaling unblockable attacks. Dodge to the side to avoid these lethal lunges.
  3. Utilize Shields: Consider using the Stone Wall Shield if parrying proves challenging. This shield allows you to block and absorb multiple attacks. Pressing L1 twice lets Kratos slam the shield into the ground, damaging nearby foes.
  4. Apply Status Effects: Inflict frost status with the Leviathan Axe and burn status with the Blades of Chaos. Combining these effects amplifies damage output significantly.
  5. Adapt to Berserk Mode: As the boss’s health diminishes, it enters a berserk-like state, increasing aggression and introducing unblockable attacks. Maintain distance and focus on dealing substantial damage while evading its onslaught.

Rewards

In addition to receiving the Nar’s Cup from the boss fight, you will also be rewarded with an enchantment called the Boon of Valor which will enhance the properties of the Valor Spartan Rage ability.

Once you are done with the boss fight, make sure to complete the questline itself fully, and if you have the Lost Pages required for the relics themselves to be available in the shop, then you should be able to craft the Hilt of Tyrfing in either Brok or Sindri’s blacksmith workshop.

Summary

God Of War Ragnarok is slowly on the rise of becoming the greatest game to be released by Playstation Studios, even going as far as to top the predecessor title that launched all the way back in 2018. Fans had eagerly anticipated the release for quite some time, and now that Kratos and Atreus are back in style, their rollercoaster journey comes to a standoff against the Norse Pantheon as Filmbulvintr engulfs the world in the wake of Ragnarok.

While returning elements such as the Nornir Chests may sound appealing to some players with their newly defined puzzles, other unique activities such as the Draugr Holes are sure to challenge you with their tough boss battles, especially on higher difficulties. If you’re going up against these bosses and more during the post-game cleanup scenario, then you’d best be well off in equipping powerful armor such as the Raven Tears Armor Set.
