Kratos is far from alone in God of War Ragnarok. In addition to Atreus, he has many allies that he can call upon in the war against Odin. One such companion is unlikely, but welcome. Freya, the Valkyrie queen, uses her steel and magic on the protagonist. In addition to the many different spells she can use, Freya wields two iconic swords, Mardoll and Trungwa. So, what is the best choice to upgrade first?
Which Freya sword should be upgraded first in God of War Ragnarok?
Honestly, there is no significant difference which swordsman decides to upgrade first. Mardell attacks with speed and inflicts Bifröst on enemies, while Trungva attacks with force and stuns enemies. Both have two upgrades that require a Folkvangr whetstone. By the time players hit Ragnarok Credits, they should have accumulated enough funds to upgrade both weapons.
Ultimately, it depends on what kind of Kratos build you have and whether he can complement Freya’s sword or vice versa. Ultimately, the most effective armor sets in the game don’t rely on any of the status effects, so it doesn’t really matter which one gets upgraded first. But everyone has a different play style. If yours happens to work in combination with a stun or Bifröst, then you have options.
