Where to Find the Preorder and Deluxe DLC in God of War: Ragnarok

For those of you that decided to purchase the Digital Deluxe or higher versions of God of War: Ragnarok, you may be wondering where all this fancy armor is once you start the game?

The answer to that question is a rather simple one, you’ll need to progress through the start of the game until you reach Sindri’s House in the Realms Between, shortly after the game’s second boss fight. This will take most players around two-three hours as they traverse the Wildwood in Midgard during Fimbulvetr.

Once you reach Sindri’s House, you’ll be introduced to how you can upgrade your existing gear and select a new shield to replace the broken shield from the battle with The Huntress. Following this tutorial, he’ll introduce you to the chest next to him, examine this to obtain any DLC including the Darkdale Armor set.

Darkdale Armor Stats

The Darkdale Armor set focuses on a balance of both Strength and Defense but offers an increase in Runic on top of it. Runic impacts the damage and effectiveness of any Runic Attacks you use, making it a potent stat if that’s where you want to focus your playstyle.

Alongside this, all three pieces come with their perk already unlocked from the start. All three perks focus on making your Rage a lot more useful, such as increasing how you gain Rage.
