Key Takeaway

You can get Luminous Alloys by tossing Crystalline Shards in the Wishing Well in Vanaheim and completing trials in The Crucible in Muspelheim. They’re also occasionally found in coffins and Legendary Chests in late-game areas.

Luminous Alloys are resources in God of War Ragnarök that are used to fully upgrade shields, which will increase your overall defense, along with other stats. They become much easier to collect later in the game.

    You can get a substantial amount of Luminous Alloys by collecting Crystalline Shards and tossing them into the Wishing Well in The Crater in Vanaheim. The shards can thankfully be found all around the same region.

    The Wishing Well can grant you a lot of useful late-game resources. Not only will you be able to obtain Luminous Alloys here, but you’ll also receive Crystal resources as well. Be sure to explore The Crater and shatter and collect any Crystalline Shard you find.

    As soon as a companion mentions you should bring the shards you collect to the Wishing Well, do so. It’s a sign you’ll receive resources and items for the shards you’ve collected.

    The Crucible Trials

    Another way to obtain Luminous Alloys in God of War Ragnarök is by completing trials in The Crucible in Muspelheim.

    Of course, you’ll first need to acquire two Muspelheim Seeds before you can access The Crucible. Alternatively, you can speak to Ratatoskr after completing the main story and he’ll give you Yggdrasil Seeds. This unlocks every single Mystic Gateway in the game, including The Crucible gateway.

    Whenever you complete a trial in The Crucible, a Legendary Chest will surface on the arena. Open these and you’ll receive resources. There are four arenas with different sets of trials in The Crucible. Do the ones in the arena to the northeast of The Crucible to receive Luminous Alloys. Go back to the trials as often as you can to obtain as many Luminous Alloys as you want.

    Open Coffins and Legendary Chests in Late-Game Areas

    The last way to obtain Luminous Alloy in God of War Ragnarök is to open coffins and Legendary Chests in late-game areas. They’re especially prominent in The Crater in Vanaheim. They’re harder to come by if you seek them out this way, but you can earn a few Luminous Alloys by simply doing favors and side activities in late-game areas.
