Now excuse me while I research good armor combos and figure out how to do the Infinity Gauntlet thing to clear out these enemies.
Before New Game +, best-in-slot armor is pretty obvious: Valkyrie set > Ivaldi's Deadly Mist set >>> everything else. You'll need to head to Niflheim to farm for Ivaldi's and level it up. Once that's done, you'll be ready to take on Valkyries.

For talismans, the Shattered Gauntlet of Ages is obviously great, but mostly because it allows you to equip an extra three epic gems. The active effect is pretty meh. The Talisman of the Realm offers fewer stats, but a much better active effect. I used the former for Niflheim runs, clearing trash mobs, etc. and the latter for Valkyries.

For pommels, the best ones all drop off Valkyries. I'm partial to Retribution (crazy upgrade to your axe throws), but the other two are also solid. I'd use Forbidden Grip of the Ages or Surtr's Grip of Flame until then.

Once you start working on gearing for endgame, pay close attention to the extra bonuses you get in the Skill tree for hitting certain Strength, Runic and Defense thresholds. The boost you get on Pride of the Frost (quick > quick > quick > strong combo) is incredibly powerful. Ensuring you've got as many of these bonuses as possible should dictate how you gem.

There are two talismans you can get immediately after reaching the lake which will make a big difference during your playthrough: The Golden Talisman of Protection and Amulet of Kvasir. I'm partial to the former, because parrying is almost always better than dodging and a wider parry window makes certain enemies so much easier to deal with, but the latter is also very good. Grab one of those ASAP.

The only other impactful item that can be reached somewhat early is The Forbidden Grip of the Ages. You can reach it once the water level drops. It offers a lots of stats, and adds a ranged attack to the end of your quick > quick > quick combo. But it's not easy to get, and is nearly impossible to figure out without a guide, so be warned.

I'm currently deep into Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and The Outer Worlds, and I'm loving both of them. Outer Worlds, in particular, is what Fallout should be, but hasn't been for years.

I just got Talisman of the Realms, but I often forget that I have to initiate the active effects on a talisman depending on what I've equipped.

(I also played through the whole main story without ever using Atreus' Runic Summon ability... a fully upgraded Storm of the Elks helped me get through my first Valkyrie fight much easier.)

Elk and Wolves are two of the best. The former is better for swarms, while Wolves are better for bosses. Crows offer the best damage overall, but no stun, so it's only ever 3rd best. Squirrel is funny, and good for topping off health if you're in a tight spot.

Luigi's Mansion has been much more fun than I would have expected. My youngest and I have played through it up to the last couple levels. Very cool finding a game she can play with me all the way through, good daddy/daughter time...

Elk worked well because apparently I was fighting the one Valkyrie that summons Draugr and Revenants during the fight (and apparently she is also the easiest to beat? Wonderful), so it cleared out the annoying/damage-dealing groups while I focused on spamming her with Atreus' arrows and hitting her with Runic attacks.

I'm heading home at lunch time, so I'll have 45 mins to upgrade the Wolves on Atreus' runic summon and take on another Valkyrie, or to finish a favor quest for the dwarves.

I think I'm addicted to this game.

Does Player 2 need to be competent?
