Danger: This guide contains spoilers for the God of War Ragnarok story.
Where can I find the Valkyrie Queen Gná?
Although you’ll meet Gná mid-game, you won’t be able to fight her until after the main story finale. You can find them at crucible in Muspelheim.
If you are looking for the Seeds for the world gate to Muspelheim If you still need help, you should read our Muspelheim guide to God of War Ragnarök.
You can find one in the southern part of the central arena crack in the rock wall. Squeeze through the gap and then climb up the rocks.
You get into one at the top Arena in which stands a small camp. But don’t be fooled: Gná will appear as soon as you approach the camp. However, she will only attack you if you approach her or aim a weapon at her.
How do I prepare for battle?
We recommend this as armor Steinbjörn armor set. Queen Gná packs a punch – hits do very high damage even on lower difficulties. The Steinbjörn armor is ideal for this fight with its high defense values and healing properties. In our Steinbjörn guide, we show you how to get this powerful armor set.
Your weapons should all be up stage 9 be leveled up. This isn’t a must to win the fight – but makes it less frustrating.
When choosing runes, rely on rune attacks that do not have a long lead-up animation. Gná is a very fast boss and sometimes attacks every second. Rune attacks that take Kratos more than a second to cast can be interrupted by Gná.
There are two relics that are particularly helpful in this fight. That would be one time Booklet of Skofnung, which you get for defeating the Berserker King Hrolf Kraki. With it, you can summon twelve spirits that will stun Gná with their attacks and deal devastating damage.
If you haven’t defeated Hrolf yet, you can alternatively do so Booklet by Hofud to use. With this relic you stop time. With an opponent as fast as Gná, this is a very useful item. You get them automatically after defeating Heimdall in the Creatures of Prophecy chapter.
For Freya offers itself the summon “Stormcall” at. This allows her to briefly stun Gná, giving you another window to attack.
Tips for fighting Gná
You must attack Gná, or at least get close to her, for the fight to begin. You can use this to your advantage. Grab them directly with one heavy rune attack or use the Rage ability Fury to jump at her and give her some heavy hits. Heavy attacks can stun her, but it’s hard to hit her with them because she usually backs up a few meters at the beginning of the fight.
Gná is an aggressive opponent – she attacks very quickly and often several times in a row. Therefore, study their attack patterns. Many attacks can also not blocked become. It is important that you always switch between phases of the aggressive offensive – for example when Gná is stunned – and phases of the defensive – when she attacks several times in a row.
She usually announces attacks with a shout. It doesn’t do this for all attacks, but you can use these calls to orient yourself. If you have trouble hearing the calls while fighting, turn on the subtitles.
Gná’s attacks at a glance
She leaps into the air and summons a green rock. Switch to the Sonic Arrows and orders Freya to shoot the rock. You can also dodge the rock, but destroying it will briefly stun Gná.
“Asgard is bleeding because of you!”
The Valkyrie summons a powerful area attack, which covers large parts of the arena. You can only interrupt the attack with a shield slam.
Gná starts one assault. If she hits you, Kratos will be held captive in an animation in which he takes a few hits. You can lose a lot of health here if you don’t dodge fast enough. Sometimes she will then strike with her wing – in that case you have to block.
“Bathe in Fire”
Gná summons one fireball, which she wants to throw at you. Switch to the rune arrows and command Freya to shoot the fireball. This breaks the charge and stuns Gná for a moment.
She jumps in the air and tries to kick you with her foot. This attack deals Frost damage and slows you down. You can only dodge the attack, blocking doesn’t work.
Gná jumps high in the air and launches a smash attack that you can’t block. Dodge immediately when you hear this call. Sometimes she repeats the attack up to three times in a row.
There are other attacks that she does not announce. Sometimes she lets Bifrost falling from the sky. The Bifrost falls towards you in a straight line, making it easy to avoid. Caution: Most of the time it then goes into close combat.
This isn’t her only Bifrost attack. Sometimes she throws Bifrost feathers, which you can block. Unfortunately, that doesn’t apply to the heavy variant of this attack, which she performs after the light feather attack. You have to avoid that.
Another special attack are the Elemental Throwing Blades. They fly in circles around Gná for a while. Stay away at this point, as the blades will disappear after a short time. She can also use the blades in close combat.
Perform rune attacks to stun Gná, then strike with basic attacks. We recommend you to the Rage ability “Courage” to set so you can heal yourself during the long fight.
