How to get Skap Slag?

There are a few ways players can get Skap Slag:

  2. Reach milestones in the story
  3. Close Realm Tears
  4. Complete Trials in Muspelheim

For a lot of players, the easiest way to collect Skap Slag will be to simply progress through the story, unlocking caskets along the way.

Some Other Tips

Another thing, you will want to MAX OUT LUCK on your NG+ armor outside of boss fights. The reason why is everything is stupid expensive in NG+. So you won’t have to hard grind Niflheim for hacksilver.

I highly recommend you increase your luck as much as possible on you general armor. If you do God of War for ether bracers or waist, you can get level 11 with your stats, that is more important. Also it will max out all stats.
