To free dragons you’ll need to find and destroy three shrines in an area to break the seal on the anchor keeping the dragon chained. The dragons are listed in the order you’re able to access them, and links to their complete walkthrough have been provided. Walkthroughs are not posted on this page to minimize spoilers.

This first dragon can be accessed as soon as Kratos makes it to the Lake of Nine. But in order to get to Veithurgard, Kratos needs to open a massive golden gate. Do so by heading to Stone Falls and spin the wheel next to the orange spirit that gives you the Hammer Fall favor.
Hop back in the boat and row toward the ruins of Veithurgard. Dock on the shore and take out the enemies that wait on the rocky beach. There’s a Lava Ancient here too, so be careful when engaging this fight. After you clear the area, climb the cliff to find a shop and a Lore Marker. Continue on, fight some wolves, then hop in another boat. In the lake you’ll see Thor’s statue on the left and a dock with some ruins around on the right.
Row up and dock on the right. Fight through the few enemies here. Follow the path through the ruins to find the dragon, but don’t walk up the steps too quickly! This beast is angry. It’ll shoot a beam of fire and lightning down the row, so approach it with caution and hide in the side passages to avoid its attacks.
Find the three shrines in the area and destroy them in order to free the dragon Otr. Use this guide to find them all. After you free the dragon, it’ll drop a Dragon Tear.

The final dragon is in need of your help is in Konunsgard. You can only reach this location after unlocking the Hail to the King favor. Do so by finishing all of Brok and Sindri’s favors. If you haven’t done any yet, it might take a little bit of time to get to this favor.
Once you have the Hail to the King favor, you can find Konunsgard by entering through King’s Hollow which is to the left of the Light Elf Outpost through a cave. You can also just track the favor at this point. Once you make it to the courtyard of the main building in Konunsgard Atreus will spot the dragon farther back on the property. There are tons of enemies in this area, so be prepared for several fights on the way to the dragon.
After you reach the dragon you can start taking down the three sealing shrines after you pass it. Get the locations of all the shrines on the The Fire of Reginn walkthrough page. As with the other two dragons, Kratos receives a Dragon Tear for setting the beast free along with other goods.
This Dragon Tear can only be found if you’ve made it a decent way through God of War’s main storyline. Click or tap the spoiler button below to reveal exactly when you can find it.
The fourth and final Dragon Tear can only be found after you’ve rescued Atreaus from Baldur. Once you’ve returned to the Lake of Nine, Baldur’s dragon lies dead northwest of Tyr’s Temple. It’s hard to miss. Once you spot it, sail to the chunk of land it’s crashed on and make your way to its face. Below its head is a small patch of dirt Kratos can dig in to get the final Dragon Tear.Spoiler – Click to see/hide
