Hidden in the world of God of War Ragnarök are a number of relics and attachments that will give you an advantage in battle.
They all apply different buffs and abilities to your attacks, making them worth finding and equipping.
If you’re struggling with combat in God of War Ragnarok, it may be because you haven’t found the right gear.
Check out our guide on how to find the Rond of Affliction and see how it will improve your game.
What is the Rond of Affliction God of War Ragnarok?
The Rond of Affliction is a shield attachment that causes elemental explosions whenever you hit a stunned enemy with a shield.
It pairs well with the Hilt of Gram, which can stun enemies and leave them open to this attack.
Shield smashes are also an important part of winning the Alva boss fight in the Temple of Light.
It also boosts your stats, gives you +11 Defense and +9 Runes, and has a nine-second cooldown.
Where to find the Rond of Affliction in God of War Ragnarok?
There is a chest on the east side of the Barrens, just north of the cave entrance.
You will see that it is overgrown with dark elf vines, making it impossible to open.
Hit all the glowing dots in quick succession, although this one is harder than most.
This is because you are at the wrong angle and instead have to hit the dots backwards.
Throw your ax at the last target in line, and when the vine breaks, wait for it to come back.
If you remember it, it should break all three points and open the chest.
This will reward you with crafting components, and the chest containing the Rond of Misery is nearby.
West of The Below cave, you can squeeze into the gap to find a similar chest.
This time your goal is to hit two of the points on the Twilight Stone and break the last one while remembering the axe.
Stand to the left of the single vine through your ax and recall it once it reaches the second point.
Open it to get your prize.
