Hey friend! As a fellow gaming geek, I know how satisfying it is to discover secrets and unravel mysteries in expansive worlds like God of War. If you‘re anything like me, you‘ve probably wondered where you can find dragons to free in the latest GoW adventure. Well, you‘ve come to the right place!

In this epic guide, I‘ll give you the inside scoop on the locations of all three imprisoned dragons across the realms. We‘ll also dive into combat strategies, rewards for freeing them, and some fascinating dragon lore. Time to grab your Leviathan Axe and liberate these legendary creatures!

Introduction: An Overview of Dragons in God of War

God of War on PS4 has a total of three majestic dragons you can track down and release. These include:

  • Fafnir – The dwarf-turned-dragon who appears in Norse mythology.
  • Otr – A dragon with shapeshifting powers mentioned in Norse texts.
  • Reginn – A powerful dragon from the famous Völsunga saga.

All three of these remarkable beasts are located in the realm of Midgard. Freeing them not only nets you sweet loot, but also unlocks new side quests allowing you to challenge the dragons in combat.

Now, I know what you‘re thinking: "This sounds awesome, but how do I actually free the dragons?" Excellent question, my friend!

Step-by-Step Directions to Each Dragon Location

I‘ve mapped out detailed directions from notable landmarks to help you find each imprisoned dragon. Just follow these guides to liberate all three!

Freeing Fafnir the Dragon

Fafnir‘s location: North of the Lake of Nine, near Alfheim Tower

To find Fafnir:

  • Travel to the Lake of Nine – the huge central lake of Midgard.
  • Go to the northwest boat dock on the lake.
  • Take the boat from this dock to Lookout Tower beach.
  • Disembark and climb up the cliffs, crossing the fallen bridge heading north.
  • Keep following this path as it winds north. You‘ll eventually reach Fafnir‘s perch!

Once you spot the chained dragon, look nearby for a runic pedestal. Interact with it to release Fafnir from captivity.

Releasing Otr the Dragon

Otr‘s location: East of the Lake of Nine, in the Veithurgard region

Here is how to save Otr:

  • Fast travel or boat to the Lake of Nine as your starting point.
  • Head to the northeast boat dock, called Stone Falls.
  • Take a boat from here to the Veithurgard region.
  • After landing, follow the path and make a hard left to climb the cliff.
  • Keep heading north and you‘ll soon find Otr chained up on a perch.

Look around for the runic pedestal to unchain this mysterious, shapeshifting dragon!

Liberating Reginn the Dragon

Reginn‘s location: Southwest of the Lake of Nine, in the Konunsgard region

Follow these steps to free Reginn:

  • Return to the Lake of Nine and travel southwest to the Iron Cove boat dock.
  • Take a boat to the Konunsgard region.
  • Once ashore, follow the path forward and take a right turn.
  • Head south, going through the canyon pass.
  • After exiting the canyon, turn right to finally reach Reginn.

As before, seek out and interact with the magical pedestal to break Reginn‘s chains!

Strategic Tips for Freeing the Dragons

Now that you know where to find the imprisoned dragons, here are some key strategies to watch out for:

  • Enemies will spawn when you activate the release pedestals. Be ready for a good fight!
  • Use Spartan Rage mode carefully during battles near the dragons to avoid damaging them.
  • Fully upgrade your Leviathan Axe and armor before liberation quests. Reginn especially is tough!
  • Stock up on healing items and rage-filling horns. You‘ll need them against the freed dragons.
  • Save your game before freeing each dragon. You don‘t want to repeat this process if you die!

The Benefits and Rewards of Liberating Dragons

Freeing the three dragons may seem daunting, but it comes with fantastic rewards:

XP Rewards:

  • Fafnir: 2,150 XP
  • Otr: 4,400 XP
  • Reginn: 6,600 XP

Useful Crafting Materials:

  • Dragon Tears – Upgrade Amulet of Kvasir, Talisman of Cursed Power
  • Dragon Scales – Upgrade Leviathan Axe

Exciting New Side Quests:

  • Hræzlyr Boss Fight

In total, you can earn 13,150 XP just from releasing the dragons! And the crafting materials help make your weapons and armor more formidable for late-game challenges.

Pretty cool, right? It pays to liberate these legendary beasts from their prisons!

Fascinating Lore Behind the Dragons

Before you rush off to free the dragons, here‘s some fascinating lore to geek out over:

Fafnir: In Norse myth, Fafnir was a dwarf who transformed into a dragon after being corrupted by the Curse of Andvari‘s ring and gold. Kratos and Atreus confront him as both a dwarf and dragon!

Otr: This shapeshifting dragon could take otter form (his name means “otter"). He shows up in several Norse poems, often battling with the god Loki over golden treasures.

Reginn: Reginn trained the famed dragon slayer Sigurd in the Volsunga Saga. But Sigurd betrayed Reginn, killing the dragon to steal the cursed Andvaranaut ring.

How cool is that? Now you‘ve got some serious dragon knowledge to flex in online forums!
