How to Farm XP

Rating ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Muspelheim combat challenges take place in five different arenas which you will be able to unlock as you progress through the challenge. Hack and slash away and bag those XP!

You will gain access to Muspelheim after you've finished the game, and by then you've probably already earned a ton of XP, but there's nothing holding you back now to set out across the realms and earn more!

Complete Labors


Rating ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Labors are a variety of tasks that include Kill Labors, Skill Labors, Crafting Labors, and World Labors. The reward for accomplishing these is a decent amount of XP!

Tips and Strategies

As you get close to finishing a Kill Labor, save 1 kill target, move on to another nearby area, finish the labor, earn your XP, and then restart from checkpoint.

You will still retain the XP you gained from the Labor and also be abe to re-do it with a lot less to do! You'll start raking in that XP reward easily.

Complete Favors


Rating ★ ★ ★ ★

Favors are side jobs offered to you by NPCs in God of War. Some of the Favors you may take on will require you to accomplish simple tasks, while others may seem like a side-quest of its own.
