I think you're not seeing a couple light bridge crystals. Make sure you're looking everywhere. Some might be on a platform across a gap from you. Sometimes you can move the crystals too.

I wouldn't feel guilty watching a YouTube video of that part but I dunno the exact spot your on so it'd be hard to say anything.

Are you really doing it on your own if you are asking for guidance here? What's the difference between relying on the ability of memory of someone here or a person that takes the time to put together a video for you to watch to not have to put it to memory for a forum poster? As I've gotten older, I couldn't care any less what someone else thinks of me and how I play my games. The first God of War was a tad confusing and my son and I relied on a video or two for help.

Here, I’m not asking how do you climb this mountain, I simply asked for tips and some strategy. A vid online is showing me exactly how to. I’m not saying it’s really “cheating”, I’d just like some know how as to how to figure out certain stuff on my own. Like a logical way to figure it out is what I miss sometimes. It’s not about what people would think, it’s totally that I want to accomplish these things on my own.

I agree, tips and walkthrus are different things. Tips help you figure it out, vids hold your hand. They land differently.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

After taking a few weeks off for the busy holiday schedule, I got back to the game. Killed a bunch of dudes, fought a giant monster, thought I had unlocked a new region but hadn’t, then upgraded some stuff I don’t really understand. I also looked up the solution to several puzzles, which I have no qualms about. That kinda stuff doesn’t really give me satisfaction these days, and I’d rather not spend 20 minutes trying to figure it out. Still not convinced I’m getting anywhere in the story, though there was new info on the hot witch, and the kid constantly says he misses his mom.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Iím liking the game, but I thought it would be more epic. Itís like go to this place, fight a few baddies, go to next place. Iíve never been overwhelmed. 3 or 4 maybe 5-6 at most.

Havenít come across any big bosses yet, if this has them that is. I would think so.

Itís says Iím either 8% completion or 12%. At 19 hours played. Really not sure. But, so far itís been pretty linear. Only did two favors or I guess side missions we would most known them as.

Itís certainly a gorgeous game. I couldnít help but see the World Serpent for several minutes, gasping in awe. But, I thought it would be, I dunno, more exciting. I mean Atreus does all the talking while Kratos grunts and never talks a full sentence.

Still, itís definitely my type of game and Iím sure Iím just at beginning still and more things will open up. I hope.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Can someone tell me what buttons to press for Kratos to gain a spurt of health?

I know it has something to do with the left d-pad and I swore Iíve done it before, but tried every button press and looked online (yes, I know itís unbelievable). I got nothing and canít use the skill that I know is there (itís not empty).
Thanks in advance.

I don't think you can gain health without an action. You have to press O to get health from health stones. I have a talisman that creates a circle temporarily where I can regain health, but some runes you have to get an axe kill or lift enemies up in the air for a chance to regenerate health.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Thanks lwhy?. But I know it was something with the d-pad. Itís mapped to left dpad and I think Iíve used it before to gain health when no green orbs are around.

Are you talking about the Hold L1 + Tap O boost from an equiped talisman? (Long recharge between uses)

It could be. I could’ve sworn I did that combo, but I’ll check tomorrow. Maybe I unequiped by mistake. Thx Rich.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

I just tried it. It didn’t work. But, when I did hit that combo it told me to press R3 which is press down on the right thumb stick. That didn’t work either and I know the talisman is usable as it’s not greyed out.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Not a biggie, but I know I used it and knew how not I totally forgot. But like I said I may have unequipped by mistake.

Game is starting to itch my buds for playing again. It says 18% completion but I’m near the top of the mountain to spread momma’s ashes. Is that close to end?

But having a ton of fun with this and figuring out the puzzles on my own is another jolt. I’m starting to see the pattern and what to look for above and below. I will say sometimes it’s maddening not knowing where to go next, exactly.

No unfortunately you're not even halfway.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Wow. Guess I got a lot to look forward to. I figured 19 hours I’d be deep, but not OldBoy style. Yeah, 5 of 17 missions so far. Hardly made a dent. Oooh what’s to come…

Good point. I upgraded Atreus whenever I could. He saved my ass more than once. I think the shock arrows were my most used in battle.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

I think Iím getting into the rhythm of this game. Iím not using as many YouTube vids and understanding what to look for. Whether it be some yellow splattered wood to looking for the O action button to climb or descend. And upgrading is making me so powerful. Iím only level 5 right now, but Iím upgrading weapons, skills, Atreusí stuff. All the moves seem to be gelling. Even two ogres arenít phasing me. I just use some special axe attacks or pummeling with Atreusí arrows. Itís just clicking and Iím not even halfwayÖ😂

Iím not sure if this is an answerable question, but what level should I typically be after 5 chapters?

What part are you in? It really depends on if you've been exploring and gained more XP and hacksilver.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

I doing chapter 5, where I have to get to Thor’s hammer. I’ve been exploring (but so far very linear and not too much to explore), opening chests, discovering new territories, doing errands. I’ve racked up a lot of hacksilver, but I use it to upgrade abilities and weapons and stuff. I’m level 5, I believe.
