The Final Challenges

Scott Peers

This page details everything you need to know about how to complete The Final Challenges favor in Muspelheim, God of War Ragnarok. We’ll cover each of the main challenges including Shield Breaker Challenge, Endurance Challenge, Onslaught Challenge, Ring of Fire Challenge, Boss Rush Challenge, and Phantom Challenge. You will need to beat all six at least once to complete the favor.

How to Complete The Final Challenges of Muspelheim Favor in God of War Ragnarok

The basic principle for completing this favor is simple enough: you need to complete all six major Muspelheim Challenges, but you can only access these after completing at least six of the Muspelheim Trials. The difference between Trials and Challenges in Muspelheim and how to unlock them can be confusing at first, so be sure to check our page on How Muspelheim Trials and Challenges Work in GoWR if you need help there. However, for the purposes of this favor, the challenges that you need to complete are listed in the table below.

Trial Combination Challenge Unlocked Description
F + R Shield Breaker Challenge Kill grunts to break the Elite enemy’s shield
F + N Endurance Challenge Survive
N + R Onslaught Challenge Survive until the time elapses
N + F Ring of Fire Challenge Stay within the ring
R + N Boss Rush Challenge Defeat a series of challenging enemies
R + F Phantom Challenge Defeat all enemies

As you can see, there are specific Trial Combinations to unlock each challenge, which means you need to complete one trial from each of the specified sword monuments which are marked by a particular rune (F, N, and R). All of these trials (and their associated sword monument runes) are listed in the table below.

Sword Monument Associated Rune Trial Name Trial Description
North F Weapon Mastery Defeat all enemies within the time limit
North F Flawless Avoid taking damage
Northeast N Ring Out Challenge Opponents rapidly regenerate from any damage
Northeast N Feed the Rift Throw orbs into the realm tear to close it before time runs out
Southeast R Population Control Kill the Elite while keeping the population under the limit
Southeast R King of the Hill Keep enemies out of the rings until the time expires

These are the initial six trials that you’ll have access to and which you need to beat at least once in order to complete The Crucible favor. After that, the following additional trials will be unlocked for each sword monument:

Sword Monument Associated Rune Trial Name Trial Description
North F Rampage Defeat 20 enemies within the time limit
Northeast N Health Steal Take constant damage, but recover health by dealing damage
Southeast R Kill Fuse Rapidly kill enemies to increase the timer

You can choose to complete any one of the three trials on offer from each of the sword monuments, so long as you complete one from each monument with the appropriate rune associated with it. For example, if you want to unlock the Shield Breaker Challenge, you need to complete one of Weapon Mastery, Flawless or Rampage from sword monument F, and then one of Population Control, King of the Hill, or Kill Fuse from sword monument R. You can then go to the central sword in the arena just below where the forge is and interact with it to access the challenge.
