My current build, I am targeting 900+ for strength. This is the only game after God of war III and few others, where I completed 100%.

Done with the game.
had a blast with this game, story wise probably on weaker side and also lack of epic set pieces unlike previous games.
having said that i can't play gow like linear hack and slash anymore i love playing this game as RPG. gameplay wise probably best in the series infact one of the all time best for me. this game so spoiled me horizon forbidden west feels so boring now

Hi guys…need some clarification…


Should I upgrade early armies to high level or wait for better armour sets?


Also how hard is it to find resources and upgrade maximum items? 

You will get good ones but won’t hurt to upgrade as you will find most of items
