But remember that the options that you pick for healing yourself will depend upon the scenario that you are currently in. Knowing the healing process and increasing maximum health will help you stay alive for an extended period in GOW Ragnarok.

How to heal in GOW Ragnarok

The two primary ways of healing yourself in GOW Ragnarok are:

  1. You can heal up a little after finishing a fight.
  2. Once you return to the Sindri’s House, your max health will be restored.

Although this is not typically useful if you are in the middle of the mission, this is something you should know when playing through the game.

To boost your health in the middle of the Combat, you can try out the following methods :

Health Boosters

One of the very first methods is using Health Boosters in GOW. Health Boosters or Health Boosts are Orbs that drop off from the enemies, or you can get them by destroying the crates and the other destructible objects you can find around.

However, the amount of health each orb will restore will vary. Some orbs will grant a small amount of healing, while some orbs will replenish a chunk of your health or even refill the full bar once you get it.

Remember that only the more challenging bosses drop off the orbs, giving out better healing benefits. Look out for these orbs if you are running low on health during battles.

Spartan Rage Healing

Kratos will have his Spartan Rage unlocked from the beginning of the game, but you can only use the Fury option out of two possibilities: Valor and Fury.

Remember that the Spartan Rage is the same as the last game. With the Spartan Rage, you can enter into a Fury Mode where you can unleash your best attacks on the enemies.

During the Rage Mode, you will be able to heal yourself a little bit every time you attack, and you will be able to redeem up to 25% of your health if you hit the maximum number of enemies during the battle in God of War Ragnarok.

For the Spartan Rage Valor Mode, triggering it will take empty out a large bar of the Spartan Rage while giving you a small dose of Health Boost.

Remember to time the Spartan Rage Healing before you get hit to dodge the incoming attack and get yourself a quick healing boost along with the Melee Attack bonus once you attack the back of the enemy.

The Spartan Rage is an excellent feature in GOW Ragnarok, and by timing it correctly with the correct “Spartan Rage Type” choice, you can wreak havoc on your enemies while staying alive in tight situations.

Using Armor Perks and Amulet Enchantments

On progressing with the missions, you will soon be able to unlock the Amulet of Yggdrasil, allowing you to use the different Enchantments on slots.

These Enchantments will also be able to give a slight buff to your builds. One of the Enchantments we suggest using is the Eir’s Armament which provides a very high chance of getting a health boost after every Runic Attack Kill.

Some Armor in the game also grant healing boosts. But remember that these boosts are not massive, and they are neither guaranteed to happen. But you will be able to get through the tight situations, so try collecting those armors as much as you can while playing the GOW Ragnarok.

There are two ways to increase your maximum health in God of War Ragnarok.

The first way of improving your total health is by finding the Indunn Apple, which you can unlock by opening up the chests across the nine realms. These chests are rune locked, and apart from some Indunn Apples you will also find the Horn of Blood Mead, increasing your maximum rage.

Another way to increase maximum health is by equipping those Armor sets, weapon upgrades, and amulet enhancements that increase your Vitality or health stats.

The more you add improvements to the vitality stats, the more maximum health you will be able to have in GOW Ragnarok. Adding more to the Vitality stat will also help you increase the stagger resistance, which will help you immensely during intense battles against the enemies.

So this was all about how to heal and increase max health in God of War Ragnarok.
