How to Get Crest of Surtr in God of War?

To get the Crest of Surtr item in God of War, you have to complete the Muspelheim Trials. As the name clearly implies, said trials are in Muspelheim. To get there, you’ll have to find all four Muspelheim Cyphers. You can then proceed to Muspelheim and go all the way into the arena. Interact with the giant fiery sword in the center to begin the Muspelheim Trials. Get ready for quite the battle, because things can get pretty hairy.

After you’ve completed the Trials, your reward will be two chests. There’s a ton of materials you’ll get from both of them, and one of them will give you the Crest of Surtr. We got three Crests of Surtr, though, that might vary depending on how well you do. We got gold in the trials, so we got three. We’re not sure if there’s a connection, but it’s something to keep in mind. From there, you can hop over to the nearest shop location.

Once you’re at the shop, you can purchase the Meteoric Slam and Breath of Thamur heavy runic attacks. You’ll need other materials, such as Smouldering Ember, Crest of Flame, and so on, but you’ll get those from Muspelheim, too. Each of the runic attacks demands one Crest of Surtr. Both attacks are amazing; they look incredibly cool and they can do fantastic amounts of damage. They’re well-worth the trouble. Meteor Slam is for the Blades of Chaos, and it summons a bunch of flaming rocks that drop on the enemies. Breath of Thamur is for the Leviathan Axe, and it’s a huge AOE attack of cold winds. Interestingly, it doesn’t do Frost damage until you upgrade it, but still, it’s awesome.
