What Realm Shift does and how to activate it in God of War Ragnarok

The Realm Shift will occur when you perform a last-second dodge against your opponent. This can be the simple dodge you do to side-step an attack, preventing Kratos from taking any damage. You do not need to do the full roll, which requires a double tap from the dodge button. Once you perform a dodge, the Realm Shift ability will appear on the screen, showing it’s activated.

When Realm Shift happens, your opponent will slow down for a while. In this slow state, you can take advantage of their missed attack and hit them with any matter of abilities you want to use against them. It’s an ability that slows down any enemy near Kratos when it happens, so more than one opponent might be under these effects. It’s a good ability to have in your equipment if you find yourself surrounded by multiple foes. You can perform a second dodge to find a better position and remove any weaker opponents to thin their numbers.

Realm Shift will only be available for a few seconds if that. You will want to use your time wisely, but you can do it back-to-back, so long as you can time the last-second dodges correctly.
