Steps to Kill Stone Ancient in God of War:
I. Patience is the key
Firstly, you need to time your attacks on the Stone Ancient to take him down. As regular attacks will give little to no amount of damage to the stone giant. You’ll only be able to give tons of damage to the stone giant by attacking his glowing chest.
Therefore, patience is the key. You don’t need to be aggressive in your attacks. Wait for him to attack you with his beam of ice. It is now, that you’ll be able to see his glowing chest. You need to time your attack & throw your leviathan axe towards the glowing chest while he’s attacking you. He is slow in his movements so it’ll be easy for you to dodge his attacks and time your axe attack towards his glowing chest.
Moreover, you can also take the cover of the rubble present in the center and avoid getting damaged. His beam of ice attack will slow you and cause some hefty damage over time.
II. Pick Up the Pieces of Stone Ancient’s heart
If you’re able to time & land your attack onto the Stone Ancient’s heart it will result in dislodging pieces of the Stone Ancient’s heart. They generally come out two in number after each successful attack you’re able to inflict. Dodge his attacks and try to pick up the fallen pieces. Beware not to get too close to the giant as it will drop down to the ground on all fours and send out unblockable energy that temporarily blinds you.
Once you get a hold of the fallen pieces of Stone Ancient’s heart you need to attack with them the same way you did with your axe. A successful attack will result in him getting stunned. It is during this stun, he’s vulnerable, hop onto him and inflict hefty damage to him.
III. Eliminate Dark Elf Spawns
You need to repeat your attack pattern twice and then some more Dark Elves will spawn. How worrisome this may sound, it signifies that the Stone Ancient is nearing its end. Moreover, It’s time for you to take the help of Atreus. You can use his ability to target and distract enemies with his arrows. Eliminate all the dark elves and go forward on killing the Stone Ancient himself.
On successfully eliminating the Stone Ancient, you’ll receive an Ancient’s Heart, five pieces of Soft Svartalfheim Steel, a load of Hacksilver, and a Rare Enchantment called Fragmented Heart of Alfheim as rewards.
