Upgrading weapons is a crucial step in god of war ragnarok, as it can increase Kratos’ damage. Each weapon has its own required materials, be it for Freya, Atreus, or Kratos himself. Exploring the nine Realms and fighting tough opponents will reward players with the requirements to level up weapons at the smithy.
The Leviathan Ax requires an item called Frozen Flame. Eight llamas in total can be found throughout the Realms in god of war ragnarok. The last flame splits into six frozen sparks, which are collected by completing Hel to Pay Favor in God War Ragnarok.

Most Frozen Llamas are rewarded by finishing a certain chapter in god of war ragnarok, or by defeating a boss while completing The Path quests. However, maxing out the Ax’s powers will surely benefit players as it makes Kratos’ damage more powerful. Frozen Llamas can be found by following these steps.

Kratos must shut down these Hel-Tears to prevent the Hel-Walkers from invading the Realms. There are six tears in total, and each rewards with a Frozen Spark.
