With the Blades taken away from him, Ares manipulated the Blades to once more kill Kratos' family, while a helpless Kratos watched in horror.
2. A SCHOOL STORY
After the fall of Ares, the Blades were never seen again, but Kratos was soon granted the similar Blades of Athena. After killing Ares and taking his place as the God of War, Kratos gained all of Ares' weapons, including the Blades of Chaos though he vowed never to use them again. Several years later, Kratos had found the Blades of Chaos and brought them with him to the Norse realm, where he hid them, wrapped together in a thick red cloth with a simple Grecian pattern on it, under the floorboards of his cabin, hoping never to use them again.
The novel explains why Kratos kept the Blades of Chaos despite their painful history.
For example, he tried to dump them in the ocean but the sea itself rejected them and destroyed his boat. He washed up ashore with the blades next to him. After this incident, he gave up and hid them beneath the floorboards as a forced reminder of his tragic history and explosive rage. Eventually, however, Kratos's son falls ill due to the conflicting natures within him. Learning that the main ingredient needed to treat Atreus was in Helheim --where the ice magic of the Leviathan Axe was useless due to the unyielding cold of the realm as no enemy can be killed with such weapon--Kratos retrieved the Blades from their hiding place and grimly rebound their chains to his forearms in order to use them once more.
As opposed to the ice-aspected Leviathan Axe, the blades give off the element of fire. Once upgraded progressively, the Blades change gradually in appearance, restoring the cracked Greek blades into a more Nordic style, adding Nordic glyphs similar to the Leviathan Axe. These glyphs glow fiery orange when ignited, and small runes written in Old Nordic decorate the edges of each Blade. The hilts become gold in color and gain two slots on the skulls' eyes for Runic Attacks ; one for light and one for heavy, while also allowing Kratos to change the pommels for different attributes.
Kratos can also infuse the fire of his left Blade to his shield , before slamming it to his foes, dealing massive damage. The Blades, via a Runic Attack called Meteoric Slam, can summon a meteor shower of fire that deals Burn damage to enemies. After meeting Brok in Helheim, the blades are also upgraded to temporarily channel the Winds of Hel. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki.

Character Status Your player statistics describe the abilities of your character, including attack and defence strengths, dexterity and vitality. These levels increase as you gain experience. LV: This is your character's level of experience. When the bar is filled, your character will gain a level.
Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon - Walkthrough/guide
ATK: This is your attack rating. The higher the number, the greater the damage that can be inflicted with a weapon. DEF: This is your defence rating. Armour upgrades increase the total and make it more difficult for monsters to inflict damage. HP: This is your Health. Health equals Life Force. You need some Health to survive!
STR: Strength improves your chances of inflicting damage using a physical Attack. INT: Intelligence improves your chances of inflicting damage using Spells. Status Effects: Any one familiar with RPGs will understand Status Effects but for those who have not been involved in combat before, Status Effects are abnormal conditions caused by magic. Poison is a Status Effect.
If your character suffers from any Status Effect, you need to use an item that will negate that condition or you may wish to see Edward for a cure. DEX: High dexterity improves both attack and defence, allowing you to dodge enemy attacks and inflict more precise and greater damage when you attack.
The Runes of Sorcery
VIT: Vitality is related to your general constitution. Higher vitality will improve your defence. Beneath these statistics are four elemental boxes representing Fire, Water, Earth and Air. At the start of the game, these will be at zero. If and when you equip a weapon, piece of equipment or accessory with elemental powers, you will see a change in the the box that corresponds with that element.
For example, one of the first elemental weapons that you will be able to obtain is a Windsword. This is a one-handed sword that is imbued with Air or Wind power. Any creature with elemental powers usually is particularly vulnerable to its opposite element. These are rules of traditional magic as well as classical RPGs.
Origin of the Runes
Status attacks often correspond to specific elemental powers. Poison is an Earth power.
In the top right corner of the status screen, you will find a box that has been quartered. This is where any status effects will be displayed. Equipment Your equipment menu includes: Tools, Weapons, Items: When you equip a tool, weapon or item, the icon appears in this box. Shields: Although shields improve protection, they prevent the use of any two-handed weapon. Ultimately, you will be forced to choose a preference in combat.
What occurs in effect is that any Shield equipped in your Shield slot will be removed whenever you equip a two-handed weapon like a Claymore. Spellbooks: Spellbooks provide special powers and even a quick escape. You can assign one spell book to your X Button.

Charms, Bracelets, Rings: These items may be insignificant in power at the start, but as you progress in the game, you will be able to create and purchase better items. You can equip two at a time, one for each hand. In Hand: This is the last Equipment box and displays the item that you are holding in your hand. Your Skills Menu: Swordsmanship: Obviously, as your skill improves, you will be able to fight monsters with greater success. Forging: Leo upgrades tools in the early stages of the game but ultimately you will be able to create the most powerful tools and weapons yourself.
You will not be able to do this, however, until you have upgraded your house. Mining: Using your Hammer to mine for ore can drain your Rune Points, but as your level increases, you will use fewer points in the mines. Farming: Your Farming level usually will be the first to improve, as farming is your first task at the start of the game.
As with any skill, it will improve over time with usage. Communication: Your communication skills will improve if you care for your monsters daily. Increasing this skill will help you make friends quickly.
Pharmacy; Although Edward is the resident chemist, you need to learn to create your own herbal potions. You can do this only by increasing your Pharmacy skill. Decoration: Creating ornamental rings will be your first project, but ultimately, you will be able to create very powerful accessories as this skill improves. Logging: Material for building always is important in Harvest Moon. Use your axe to chop branches in your field and in the mines. Only an upgraded Axe can chop the large stumps.
Cooking: Properly prepared food can restore HP, temporarily boost your Stats and improve magic defence. An ability to cook well can help in your courtship of an eligible girl. You will be unable to cook anything until you obtain a Kitchen for your house.
Fishing: Fishing always is an important part of life in Harvest Moon. The fish you catch with your first fishing rod will be small and will not be worth much, but if you practice on rainy days, you will catch more valuable fish. Use your stylus to touch the tabs on the left of the Touchscreen to access different menus. The second tab is devoted to your Skills. If you access it now, you will see the following: Swordsmanship: 1 Forging: 1 Mining: 1 Farming: 1 Communication: 1 Camping: 1 Pharmacy: 1 Decoration: 1 Logging: 1 Cooking: 1 Fishing: 1 In other words, you basically are unskilled at the start of the game.
The next tab is the third from the top and is for: Friends: This is the screen that displays your 'tamed' monsters and will give you statistics about any Monster you have asked to 'join' you when you set forth to explore a cave. At present you will see: No monster is with you. When you have tamed monsters and have asked one to 'join' you, you will see a picture of that monster on the upper screen and all statistics and details about the monster on the lower screen. It will not tell you whether or not the monster gives ranch products or is willing to work on your farm.
You will obtain that information when you approach the monster in the hut and press 'A'. You then will see any tasks that the monster is willing to perform for you as well as the option to return it to the First Forest.
