GoW Best Favors Top.png

There are more than a dozen different favors to complete for God of War, each with its different and unique rewards. This page will detail all of the best favors to complete. Read on to find out which favors give you the best rewards!

What are Favors?

Favors are optional quests you can choose to take on as you journey around the realms. Usually, they are given by the friendly Dwarves Brok and Sindri, but there will be times that spirits and situations themselves will cause a favor to be initiated. Completing a favor unlocks rewards that you otherwise would be unable to access in-game.

Although its better if you accomplish this quest the second time the waters of the Lake of Nine go down, it is still entirely possible to accomplish this side quest beforehand. Accomplishing it will net you the recipe to the final piece of Tyr's Armor Set – Tyr's Lost Unity Gautlets.
