One of the best armors in God of War Ragnarok is the Berserker Armor. Obtained by defeating three specific Berserker Gravestones with one of them being only available in post-game. The Berserker armor offers a wide range of attributes, and the perk will raise your attack at the cost of your defense whenever a Relic attack is used.
How to Find the Berserker Armor
Before you’re able to start crafting the armor set, you’ll need to be able to activate the Berserker Gravestones. For this, you’ll need the key-item Hilt of Skofnung which you’ll acquire during the story mission “The Word of Fate”. Once you have the hilt, you’ll be able to activate the gravestone to fight one of the Berserker bosses. There are 10 gravestones, and three of them will give you the option to craft the Berserker Armor. The three you need to defeat are:
The Barrens, Alfheim - This will have you face off against Svipdagr the Cold, and the Sisters of Illska. This is probably the toughest Berserker fight other than the King. Completing this gravestone will unlock the Berserker Cuirass.
Lake of Nine, Midgard - This will have you battle Fraekni the Zealous. Completing this gravestone will unlock the Berserker Waist Guard.
Mist Fields, Niflheim - This will have you face Skjothendi the Unerring. You can only gain access to this gravestone after finishing the main story as it’s in a part of Niflheim that you can’t reach until then. Completing this gravestone will unlock the Berserker Gauntlets.
Berserker Armor Upgrade Materials
After defeating the above Berserker’s, head to any Blacksmith workstation to find the Berserker Set ready to be crafted. Here is what you need to craft the whole armor set:

Where to get Berserker Armor Materials
As you can see above, you’ll need quite a few materials in order to craft, and max out the Dragon Scaled Armor Set. If you’re wondering where you can get your hands on these materials, check the list below.
How to Get Asgardian Ingots
Mainly found in the late-game area coffers, and treasure chests. The best way to get this rare resource is by using the Wishing Well in The Crater region in Vanaheim. Break the amber-colored ore around The Crater, and when you have a few, head to the Wishing Well, and toss them in it to get the ingots as well as other materials, and Hacksilver.
How to Get Tempered Remnants
You can get Tempered Remnants as a reward from defeating the Berserker’s in the Berserker Gravestones. They’ll normally drop around 2-5 when defeated.
How to Get Sparkling Crystals
Similar to a lot of the rarer resources. The best way to get these are by using the Wishing Well in The Crater region in Vanaheim. Break the amber-colored ore around The Crater, and when you have a few, head to the Wishing Well, and toss them in it to get the ingots as well as other materials, and Hacksilver.
How to Get Purified Crystalline
These are a relatively easy resource to get your hands on. You get them by trading crystal fragments which are scattered throughout The Crater region to the Wishing Well. This can be reached from either The Jungle or The Sinkholes. Trading these fragments can net you some nice loot including, Hacksilver, Purified Crystalline, and other various goodies. The more you trade, the more you’ll get.
How to Get Smouldering Embers
The only place to get these rare resources is from the Muspelheim Trials in The Crucible. Thankfully, these can be repeated to your heart’s content, so you can find the one you find the easiest, and repeat that specific trial.
Best way to Get Hacksilver
A lot of The Crater Favors will yield a lot of Hacksilver, and if that isn’t enough, you can trade yellow crystal fragments to the Wishing Well for even more.
