This guide will explain everything you need to know to get the absolute best out of the game, and make the most efficient use of your time, so you can decide what’s worth pursuing and what’s best left ignored.

QUALITY RATING, RARITIES/TIERS AND GEAR ABILITIES EXPLANED

Before delving into the numerous activities available in the game, It’s important to fully understand how the weapons, inventory and crafting systems work.

There are three tiers to weapons and shields and these are indicated by their coloured backgrounds, blue being the common tier, purple being rare and golden being Legendary.

All weapons and shields come with additional fixed attributes making them unique. Common blue gear will always have a single black attribute, rare purple gear will always have two black attributes, and gold legendary gear will always have two black attributes and one golden attribute, or two black attributes and the red Cursed attribute.

All the black attributes have four ranks indicated by these small white bars, the higher the rank the more powerful the attribute. By pressing the Legend button displayed at the bottom left of the Gear screen, all the available weapon and shield attributes will be clearly displayed for your perusal.

For an explanation of each one and improvements granted for each rank simply hover over them. The golden attributes don’t have any ranks, instead they all offer a pre-determined set effect, the same goes for the unique red Cursed attribute, which basically turns you into a glass cannon.

The Quality rating of your gear is the primary stat, and the higher the Quality rating the better, in the case of weapons a higher Quality rating means more damage per second, and in the case of shields it means more hit points.

For obvious reasons, you will always want to take into consideration the attributes a particular piece of gear offers over another, before making your final decision of what to equip or upgrade, rather than deciding on the Quality rating alone.

For instance Critical Hit Rate, Critical Hit Damage and Bleeding on Hit may all serve you better than Fire Resistance, Rate of Fire and Adrenaline on Parry.

EXPLANATION OF BOW TYPES, MELEE WEAPON TYPES, AND QUICK SWAP MECHANIC

There are four types of bows in the game as follows: Hunter Bows, Light Bows, Warrior Bows and Predator Bows, each type has its own advantages and disadvantages in given situations.

The Hunter Bow is a good all-round multi-purpose ranged weapon, that suits most situations and will most likely be your most utilized bow.

The Light Bows are rapid fire Bows that can fire off several arrows in very quick succession, similar to a semi-automatic weapon, sapping the health of any nearby targets quickly and efficiently.

The Warrior Bows are close range high powered Bows, that fire off 5 arrows in one shot with a wide spread, shotgun style. Just make sure you’re in optimal range so as to ensure all arrows find their target.

And finally the Predator Bows are slow firing long range sniping Bows, ideal for stealth headshots, dealing high damage, and thinning stronghold ranks from a distance.

Make sure to check out these four useful skills on Bayek’s Abilities Hunter tree that further enhance the strengths of each bow type:

&#;Enhanced Light Bow allows you to fire off even more arrows rapidly without reload.

&#;Enhanced Predator Bow enables slo-mo and flight control of your arrows for even more head-shot accuracy.

&#;Enhanced Hunter Bow will allow you to perform Shield Breaks by powering up your shot.

&#;Enhanced Warrior Bow will allow you to reduce the dispersion of your five arrows, allowing greater accuracy at greater distance.

The ranged weapon slot marked A is your primary Bow slot, and the slot to its left marked B is your secondary Bow slot, the B slot requires the Bow Bearer Skill on the Hunter Tree to unlock allowing you to quick swap two of your favourite bows on the fly.

There are seven types of melee weapons available as follows: Regular Swords, Sickle Swords, Dual Swords, Heavy Blunts, Heavy Blades, Scepters and Spears.

Just like Bows, the melee weapon slot marked A is your primary weapon slot, and the slot to the right marked B is the secondary melee weapon slot, the B slot requires the Weapon Bearer Skill under the Warrior Tree to unlock allowing you to quick swap two of your favourite melee weapons on the fly.

MUTUAL ATTRIBUTES OF WEAPONS AND SHIELDS

Its worth noting that each category type of melee weapon and bow have a mutual attribute that is always present within that category. Always consider these mutual attributes when deciding which categories of weapons you want to use.

Check out this table to see which mutual attributes are always present for the different categories of weapons, which may sway your preference when deciding which categories to spend the most resources upgrading, and of course, using in battle.

OVERPOWER ABILITY EXPLAINED

Now is a good time to explain how the Overpower ability works, which is given to you at the start of the game. Overpower is activated by attacking enemies and filling your Adrenaline bar, once it fills it will glow indicating its ready to use at your will.

There are two modes of Overpower that can be triggered, one is a single powerful attack which needs to be timed properly to hit a vulnerable enemy and is displayed as a blue bar, the other is a Fury mode which increases your attack speed and damage for several seconds which is displayed as a yellow bar.

The mode that becomes available to you depends on the weapon you are wielding. Regular Swords, Spears, Heavy Blades and Dual Swords all build to a blue bar and trigger a high powered single attack which requires timing and accuracy, while Sickle Swords, Scepters and Heavy Blunts all build to a yellow bar and trigger the Fury mode for several seconds.

Its worth noting once your Overpower ability becomes available, it will remain available until manually triggered. This means you can swap to any other weapon from any category if you prefer to use the Overpower ability of another weapon, the charge will remain.

To double the damage of your Overpower ability for all weapons, you will want to unlock the Overpower Ultra ability under the Warrior tree, costing just a single ability point to unlock.

OUTFITS AND MOUNTS

The outfits and mounts section are mainly aesthetic, so simply choose your outfit and mount to suit your visual appeal. According to some sources the horses are supposedly a tiny bit faster and camels offer slightly more stability during mounted combat, but if this is the case then its barely noticeable, so simply pick a mount you prefer the look and feel of.

New mounts can be purchased at stables, or by completing side quests and winning race tournaments at the Hippodrome. New outfits can be purchased from any Tailor, or by completing side quests and defeating bosses at the gladiator arenas.

TOOLS AND TOOL SLOT EXPLAINED

You are designated a single Tool slot for equipping a tool, there are six tools available in the game which are all unlocked under the Seer section of Bayek’s Abilities tree.

The tools available are Berserk, Firebomb, Flesh Decay Toxin, Poison Darts, Sleep Darts, and Smoke Screen. These tools will assist Bayek in either battle or stealth.

You can assign one of three specific tools at a time in the tool slot, these are the Fire Bomb, Poison Darts or Sleep Darts, when you hold left on the D-Pad or press number four on your keyboard, your slotted tool will be equipped and ready to deploy at your will.

The remaining three tools do not need to be slotted and equipped to use, only unlocked. These are Berserk, Flesh Decay Toxin, and Smoke Screen, instead you will see in game prompts to press a key when the correct situation arises to use one of these three tools, you will also see an onscreen prompt of remaining ammunition after deployment.

You can also see remaining ammunition of all unlocked tools as well as remaining arrows of all bows via the Inventory screen.

CRAFTING EXPLAINED

OK lets dive into the crafting available in the game which is limited to these six pieces of gear, which cannot be removed or changed, only upgraded. These are the Hidden Blade, Quiver, Stabilizer Glove, Bracer, Breastplate and Tool Pouch.

The small white bars located to the right of each item, indicate the level that particular piece of gear has been currently upgraded to.

If you mouse over each piece of gear, you will see the stats at the bottom of the screen change, the base white figure is what your current stat is, and the highlighted green figure shows you what the stat will change to after upgrading that piece of gear to the next level.

Upgrading each of the six pieces of gear will require specific resources, and each piece of gear will upgrade different stats specific to that piece of gear which I will explain in detail shortly.

Its worth mentioning here that the two DLC’s, The Hidden Ones and Curse of the Pharoahs, both add additional crafting levels to each piece of gear, and the latter DLC offers a new crafting material to farm.

I don’t know the exact crafting material numbers required for the additional crafting levels introduced in the Curse of the Pharoahs, for this reason I will leave the chart entries blank where appropriate. I will quickly explain what each DLC brings to the table in terms of crafting.

The first DLC The Hidden Ones adds two new crafting levels for the Hidden Blade, Stabilizer Glove, Bracer and Breastplate raising their max levels from 10 to 12, as well as adding one new crafting level for the Quiver and Tools Pouch, raising their max levels from level 5 to 6. No new crafting materials are introduced in this first DLC.

The second and final DLC Curse of the Pharoahs, just like the first DLC, adds a further two new crafting levels for the Hidden Blade, Stabilizer Glove, Bracer and Breastplate raising their max levels from 12 to 14, as well as adding one new crafting level for the Quiver and Tools Pouch, raising their max levels from 6 to 7.

Curse of the Pharoahs also introduces a new crafting material called Shards of a Star and you will need of these to max out all your crafting levels. Shards of a Star can be acquired from killing the undead bosses Pharoah’s Shadows which drop 3 per kill, as well as killing Scorpions in the afterlife which drop 2 per kill.

You will also find various treasure locations that possess these Shards of a Star throughout the Afterlife regions, with one place in particular being abundant, namely Orion’s Crater located in the eastern part of Heb Sed, Ramesses’ Afterlife region.

Upgrading the Hidden Blade which is automatically acquired early in the story, will increase its damage during stealth kills, increasing your chances of taking out higher level enemies in one hit undetected. Here you can see all the resources required to fully upgrade the Hidden Blade and the resulting damage increase per level. As previously mentioned I don’t know all the exact numbers for some of the DLC entries which I will leave blank where appropriate.

Upgrading the Quiver will increase your max arrow capacity, which can make a big difference when farming resources or infiltrating large camps. Here you can see all the resources required to fully upgrade the Quiver and the resulting increase in arrows for each bow type per level.

Its worth keeping one of each type of bow in your inventory, since the available ammunition is exclusive to each type of bow. So for example, if you run out of arrows on your Hunter bow, simply swap to another bow type for which you still have ammunition.

Upgrading the Stabilizer Glove will increase ranged damage for all of your bows, and is a must if you prefer attacking at distance. Its also a good way to increase your chances of one hit headshot kills. Here you can see all the resources required to fully upgrade the Stabilizer Glove and the resulting increase in bow damage for each upgrade level.

Upgrading the Bracer will increase melee damage for all of your melee weapons. This is definitely a piece of gear you will want to upgrade often as optimizing your melee damage in this game is crucial. Here you can see all the resources required to fully upgrade the Bracer and the resulting increase in melee damage for each upgrade level.

Upgrading the Breastplate will increase your HP allowing you to take more damage before falling. There are three segments to your health bar, when your health drops into each segment, your health will only recover to the segment it dropped into, so having a large pool of HP to work with is crucial, especially when fighting bosses or multiple foes. Here you can see all the resources required to fully upgrade the Breastplate and the resulting increase in HP for each upgrade level.

Finally we have the Tool Pouch, upgrading the Tool Pouch will increase the ammunition available for the six different Tools. As a reminder the Fire Bomb, Poison Darts and Sleep Darts all need to be manually slotted and equipped before using, while the Berserk, Flesh Decay Toxin, and Smoke Screen tools are all passive and rely on onscreen prompts for activation. Here you can see all the resources required to fully upgrade the Tool Pouch and the resulting increase in ammunition for each upgrade level.

 

CRAFTING RESOURCES CHART – WHERE TO FIND CRAFTING RESOURCES

This chart shows you all the crafting resource types in the game and where you can acquire them.

 

BLACKSMITH UPGRADING AND DISMANTLING EXPLAINED

It’s a good idea to get into the early habit of dismantling the vast majority of your unwanted blue and purple gear for crafting materials instead of selling, to do this simply go into your Gear screen, select the item you want to dismantle, then hold down the indicated button.

You will gain bronze, iron and/or cedarwood for doing so and a ton of these resources are required for your crafting. This tactic will save you a lot of time farming and will no doubt speedup your crafting progress which should be your priority.

Its best to avoid dismantling Gold Legendary gear as it’s worth significantly more selling to a trader, the materials you receive isn’t a good trade off when dismantling Legendaries. Also its only a good idea to only ever upgrade Legendary gear at a Blacksmith, rather than blues or purples.

Saying that, as you will be acquiring new more powerful weapons often throughout the story and side quests, its still only worth splashing out on upgrading Legendaries later on in the game when you’re at a much higher level and have a lot more coin, since you can only upgrade weapons and shields to your current level.

As you can see here it costs a similar amount of Drachmas to upgrade a Legendary weapon from any Level to your current level, if the Legendary is 30 Levels below you or just 1 Level below you, it will still cost a similar amount to upgrade it to your current level. This means if you are upgrading your Legendaries at regular intervals to keep up with your level from an early stage, you will be spending way too much overall.

When upgrading Weapons and Shields at a Blacksmith, the upgrade only improves the Quality rating value of an item, this means higher DPS for weapons and increased health for Shields.

The specific abilities and the level of those abilities attached to a weapon or shield will always remain the same whether fully upgraded or not. So make sure to keep hold of and fully upgrade those Legendaries with your favourite abilities and ability level combinations.

BEST WAYS TO ACQUIRE LEGENDARY GEAR

The best ways to acquire Legendary gear is by completing certain activities in the game. I will be explaining all these activities in detail shortly, but there are two specific activities which are the best activities for acquiring Legendaries which are solving Papyrus Scroll Puzzles and killing Phylakes Prey. You can also buy expensive Heka Chests from Reda at Nomad’s Bazaar which gives a random Rare or Legendary item so is more of a gamble.

ALL ACTIVITIES EXPLAINED

Besides the usual Main Quests and Side Quests available in the game, there are many other enjoyable activities to be explored which will significantly boost Bayek’s experience as well as bolstering his loadout with Rare and Legendary gear when completed, so are well worth investing the time to complete. These activities are as follows:

Military Strongholds, War Elephants, Tombs and Ancient Mechanisms, Stone Circles, Gladiator Arenas, Hermit Locations, Hippodrome Chariot Racing, Nomad’s Bazaar, Papyrus Scrolls and Myths of the Pharoahs Stelae Puzzles, Phylakes Prey and Shadows of the Scarab bounty hunters, Ptolemy Statues, Viewpoints and finally Animal Lairs.

 

MILITARY STRONGHOLDS

Military Strongholds come in three sizes, Small Military Camps indicated by a red single arrow icon require you to kill a single captain and loot a designated treasure to clear.

Medium Military Installations indicated by an icon with two arrows require you to kill a captain, a commander as well as loot two designated treasures to clear.

And full-sized Forts indicated by three arrows require you to kill two captains, a commander, as well as loot four designated treasures to clear.

Captains and Commander’s will always be identified with a yellow crown icon when tagged, so make sure to scan strongholds with Senu to locate targets before infiltration.

There’s a high chance that Medium Installations and Forts will possess the rare Carbon Crystal crafting material in one or more of their treasure locations, looting these rare Carbon Crystals is one of the main reasons to clear out these larger Strongholds.

 

WAR ELEPHANTS

War Elephants are indicated by this map icon when located, they are extremely tough elite enemies and your objective is to simply kill them. All War Elephants are level 40 so are best tackled when you are much closer to their level and suitably equipped.

There are four elephant battles in total each offering one Ability Point upon defeat, one elephant also offers a Legendary outfit and another offers a Legendary Predator Bow.

TOMBS & ANCIENT MECHANISMS

Tombs are ancient burial sites that house plenty of treasure and mysteries waiting to be discovered, but to clear each one you will need to locate and activate an Ancient Tablet.

There are fourteen Tombs in the game each housing one Ancient Tablet, once you locate and interact with the Tablet in each one you will be awarded with an Ability Point.

Of the fourteen Tombs, 6 of them also house a hidden Ancient Mechanism with a secret message, once found, these Ancient Mechanisms can only be activated with a rare and unique resource called Silica.

Once an ancient mechanism is activated, you will receive an ancient recorded secret message and experience per Mechanism. There is only a set number of Silica to be found in the game and their sole purpose is to unlock Ancient Mechanisms.

The vast majority of Silica are found in the Tombs themselves so exploring them is vital, while a small number of Silica are scattered in the main world as treasure, Tombs by far will be your main supply.

Five out of the six Ancient Mechanisms require 5 Silica giving the usual secret message and experience when unlocked, while one of the Mechanisms is special requiring 50 Silica and will unlock the secret Isu Armor, this special Ancient Mechanism is found under the Great Sphinx located in East Giza which is accessed via a secret passage at the rear.

However you will only be able to access to the Sphynx’s Ancient Mechanism by completing the side quest named Bayek’s Promise which is the Stone Circles activity I will detail next.

Its worth noting that as you unlock the Ancient Mechanisms, the appropriate number of Silica will be deducted from your inventory, so if your only concern is acquiring the secret Isu armour, then unlocking the other Ancient Mechanisms is not required. Just make sure to have 50 Silica in your inventory for the moment you complete the Bayek’s Promise Stone Circles side quest and the armour is yours.

STONE CIRCLES / ALIGN THE STARS

The Stone Circles activity is marked on the game’s map legend as ‘Align the Stars’. The side quest directly related to this activity is called Bayek’s Promise, and as just mentioned, it is a pre-requisite to unlocking the Ancient Mechanism underneath the Great Sphynx to acquire the secret Isu Armour.

To unlock the Mechanism you will need to locate and align the stars at twelve Stone Circle locations in the base game. You will receive experience points upon completing each one. There are another two optional Stone Circle locations in the Hidden Ones DLC but these are not required to unlock the Isu Armour.

GLADIATOR ARENAS

Two Gladiator Arenas in the game will pit you against tough enemies upon which defeating you will be rewarded with experience points and in some cases, Legendary gear.

To unlock the two arenas you must complete a Level 28 Main Quest called The Crocodile’s Jaws, as well as a Level 28 Side Quest called The Champion which is found in South Faiyum Oasis just outside the first Arena in Krokodilopolis.

The main quest will naturally take you directly to the Arena as part of the main story so you can’t miss it. Once completed a side quest will be given named The Lure of Glory taking you to the second optional Arena in Cyrene.

HERMIT LOCATIONS

Hermit Locations are designated areas in the game which you interact with to meditate, when you locate and meditate at each one you will unlock an Ability Point so they are well worth the effort to seek out. There are 5 Hermit Locations in the base game, 2 in the Hidden Ones DLC, and 5 in the Curse of the Pharoahs DLC.

HIPPODROME CHARIOT RACING

You will come across the Hippodrome in Kanopos early in the story which pits you against five opponents in chariot racing. There are four tournaments in total each with three races. You win experience per race and coin for winning a tournament.

If you win all four tournaments you will win the special Pharoahs Horse Chariot as well as unlock the elite versions of the tournaments. If you win all four elite tournaments, you will win a special Roman Warhorse Chariot.

NOMAD&#;S BAZAAR

Nomad’s Bazaar is a special roaming shop run by a boy named Reda who becomes available early in the story, you will see him located on the map as a blue camel. He will show up in various locations all around Egypt. He sells two items, rare Carbon Crystals for crafting and Heka Chests. He has 20 Carbon Crystals for sale in total for Drachmas each, and unlimited Heka Chests for the same price.

If you are online he also offers daily quests highlighted as a blue exclamation mark on your map, rewarding you with free Heka chests to open. However in general what you receive from the Heka chests isn’t really worthwhile so best to save your coin and dedicate your time to completing more meaningful tasks.

PAPYRI SCROLLS

Papyrus Scroll Puzzles are an activity in the game that provides one of the best methods of acquiring random Rare and Legendary Weapons, with Legendaries having a slightly higher chance of dropping. First you need to locate and collect a Papyrus scroll located at various temples in the country, marked with a Papyrus icon on your map.

Once collected you can then read the Scrolls in your Inventory which gives you a clue as to the location of a hidden treasure. You will be rewarded with experience points for locating and collecting the actual scroll itself, and upon finding the hidden treasure the scroll hints at, you will be rewarded with Experience points, Drachmas and a random Rare or Legendary Weapon.

In total there are 29 Papyrus Scrolls to be found in the entire game, 25 Scrolls are found in base game, and a further four can be found in the hidden ones DLC.

MYTHS OF THE PHAROAHS

The Myths of the Pharoahs is an activity exclusive to the Curse of the Pharoahs DLC. It is a very similar activity to the Papyrus Scrolls just mentioned. However instead of scrolls you have to locate and read four Stelae in each of the four areas of the afterlife, so there are sixteen Stelae to locate and read in total.

Once all four Stelae have been read in a given area, a new clue will appear in your inventory under the Myths of the Pharoahs section. This will provide you with the final details to solve the riddle and track down the hidden treasure in that particular area. Your reward will be a random Legendary Weapon and there are four in total to find and unlock.

PHYLAKES PREY

Phylakes Prey offer one of the best ways to acquire Legendary Weapons, they are a group of ten elite bounty hunters that hunt Bayek at various locations after completing the main story quest Gennadios the Phylakitai. They range from levels 20 to 40 and show up on the map as red horned head icons patrolling their own designated regions.

It’s a good idea to always try and stealth assassinate a Phylakes Prey when you locate one, as this can significantly drain their health even before battle begins. If your Hidden Blade has been sufficiently upgraded and you are at the right level, you may even kill them outright.

If they happen to be on horseback you can simply follow them undetected on foot until the Assassinate prompt appears, Bayek will then pull them off their horse and inflict massive damage giving you a big upperhand.

Its also good practice to draw them into clear areas out of sight of patrolling guards before engaging, this will ensure your focus remains on the Phylakes Prey without distraction, making your battle much more manageable.

Upon killing each Phylakes Prey you will be rewarded with a Legendary Weapon, Experience points and Drachmas. The first Phylake you kill will drop an Assassination Contract, explaining why the bounty hunters pursue Bayek.

Four of the ten Phylakes Prey will carry an Ornamental Key which will drop once defeated, collecting all four of these keys will unlock a quest to find the Black Hood Legendary Outfit. However all ten Phylakes Prey will have to be tracked down and defeated in battle before the Legendary Outfit can be finally acquired.

 

SHADOWS OF THE SCARAB

Shadows of the Scarab bounty hunters are exclusive to the Hidden Ones DLC and are similar to the Phylakes Prey in the base game, the only difference being there is only two of them rather than ten to kill for Legendary Weapons. Once both are defeated this will trigger a final quest to find their leader, which upon completing will reward a large amount of Experience points.

PTOLEMY STATUES

There are nineteen statues of the Pharoah Ptolemy that can be found all across Egypt, the statues all hold a severed head in their hand with the intention of instilling fear to terrorize the public.

Destroying these statues will earn you to Experience Points depending on the statue, just bear in mind if there are any nearby guards in the vicinity they will attack as soon as you hit the statue.

Ptolemy Statues are a very straightforward activity to help boost your experience points, so if you come across them on your journeys, be sure to smash them up.

VIEWPOINTS

Viewpoints in Assassins Creed Origins differ from all previous Assassins Creed games in that they don’t unfog the map when synchronised with, this time physical exploration is required for map unfogging, however what they do provide is adding question marks to the map of the surrounding area highlighting places of interest worth exploration and ultimately reward.

There’s another worthwhile function to Viewpoints besides adding local POI’s on the map, which is in relation to your scouting Eagle Senu. Every time you synchronise with a Viewpoint, Senu’s perception will also slightly increase. This means every time you use Senu’s Hover Scanning ability, his range of perception to detect and tag targets of interest is increased covering a larger area.

Therefore it is worth the effort to synchronise with as many Viewpoints as possible, not to mention the aerial vistas you will be treated to at each one, allowing you to take in the breathtaking world Ubisoft Montreal have created.

ANIMAL LAIRS

Finally we have Animal Lairs, found throughout Egypt at varying levels, each Lair will house one Alpha elite animal much stronger than the rest at that location. Alpha animals are identified with a yellow crown when tagged, similar to that of Captains and Commanders.

Kill the Alpha animal at each Lair to complete the Lair, earn Experience and loot extra materials for crafting. The remaining animals are optional kills. There are eight types of animal Lairs to be found in the game as follows: Cobras, Crocodiles, Hippos, Hyenas, Ibex, Leopards, Lions and Vultures.

BONUS TIPS AND TRICKS

OK before finishing the video im gonna throw in some extremely useful bonus tips for general play, I highly recommend you check these out.

-In the game options I highly recommend changing the default Shield Action option from Hold to Toggle, this means you wont have to consistently hold up your shield during combat, making the flow of battle feel much more natural.

-It is best to attack enemy camps at night when many guards will be sleeping, meaning easy assassinations and less patrols. To skip time forward, make sure to unlock the Dawn & Dusk ability in the Seer tree.

-The Assassins Creed icon at the top right of the screen indicates you have Ability Points to spend and the hammer icon indicates you have crating upgrades available.

-To track the upgrade resources required to level a particular piece of gear without having to enter the Gear screen, you can use the Pin feature by pressing the corresponding button when hovering over a piece of crafting gear.

Now, when you’re out scanning with Senu, the resources required to upgrade that particular piece of gear to the next level will be displayed in the top right of the screen.

-When at any trader hold down on the D-Pad or hold V to automatically sell all your items in one go that are only useful for selling, basically all your Trinkets and Animal Goods.

-Besides tagging enemies and quest objectives, Senu’s Hover ability will also reveal treasure locations, hidden or secret entrances, as well as brazier alarms. Just make sure to follow the direction of the small white arrows while scanning, to reveal everything in Senu’s perception range.

-Make sure to sabotage any brazier alarms at large military installations to prevent reinforcements, you can locate brazier alarms by using Senu’s hover ability. If a Phylake Prey is nearby a triggered alarm will draw them to assist the enemy making your mission a lot tougher.

-A red background on a tagged enemies level indicates they are higher level than you, a skull icon indicates they are at least four levels above you and best avoided.

15 Best Armor Sets In Assassin’s Creed Origins, Ranked

Assassin's Creed Originsrepresented a turning point for the Assassin's Creed series. A departure from the style of gameplay that the franchise had become known for, 's Origins puts players in the shoes of Bayek of Siwa; a Medjay of Ancient Egypt and a proto-assassin doing assassin-like things before the Brotherhood had even been established.

RELATED: Assassin's Creed: 5 Reasons Odyssey Is Better Than Origins (& 5 Ways Origins Is Superior)

An Ancient Egyptian sheriff of sorts, Bayek travels far and wide to avenge his son's death at the collective hands of the Order of the Ancients, a mysterious and dangerous collective of proto-templars.

Unsurprisingly, it is a pretty big burden for Bayek to bear; traveling around Egypt and righting wrongs is hard work, but he still manages to get it done and in style. Here's a breakdown of the top 10 best armor sets in Assassin's Creed Origins because what good is getting revenge on the people responsible for your son's death if you don't look good while you do it?

Updated by Madison Lennon on March 15, Assassin's Creed Origins remains one of the best games in the franchise, and there are tons of things to do in the game, even after you beat the main campaign. For many players, unlocking all of the outfits and available gear is one of their favorite aspects of games, especially RPG-style games like this one.

We've updated the following list with some of the other amazing outfits you can find while you're exploring the vast terrain of ancient Egypt. You might be surprised by how many great options are available to you.

15 Shaman

This neat outfit is said to allow Bayek to have better communication with the spirits that could improve his hunting skills. You can earn this legendary outfit by defeating the war elephant, Herwennefer.

It will give Bayek a somewhat mystical air when wearing it, and it comes with a cheetah hide that is draped across his shoulder, making it seem as if he just came back from an accomplished hunt. The red hood and fabric coloring is also suited to his skin tone and makes him look formidable but also intriguing.

14 Ezio's Outfit

Ezio Auditore da Firenze is one of the most popular characters in the entire franchise, so it is pretty awesome that you can wear his outfit in this game. To earn the legendary outfit, you will need to get the Assassin Badge on Uplay.

That can be achieved by earning 3, XP across all the games in the franchise that you regularly play. If you've already spent a lot of hours on your AC games, then it shouldn't be hard for you to unlock Ezio's outfit at all.

13 Dress Of The Northern Realm

The Dress of the Northern Realm is another legendary outfit you can find in the game. You'll be able to purchase it from a tailor for 5, drachmae. It isn't the prettiest outfit to look at, as it is quite bulky, but it's practical.

In fact, some people think this outfit is rather ugly but it also seems to be very well-suited to the missions you'll be embarking in. Even if it's not exactly gorgeous, it's one of the better outfits in the game and offers protection.

12 Dress Of The Coastal Realm

To get this legendary outfit, you'll need to defeat the boss known as The Slaver in Krokodilopolis in the Gladiator Arena. It can also be purchased from a tailor for the cost of 5, drachmae.

It is one of the coolest looking outfits in the game, although some gamers have pointed out that it seems like it would be extremely hot to wear thanks to its boots and fur. That said, desert environments can get surprisingly cold at night so the outfit likely helps ward off a chill, at least.

11 Altair's Outfit

Altair's Outfit is a legendary outfit worn by the legendary Assassin Altaïr Ibn-La'ahad. If you want to get this specific outfit, you'll need to earn the Master Assassin Badge on Uplay. You'll need to get 7, XP from the game, not the Ubisoft Store.

It combines your XP from previous games. For those who have played Assassin's Creed for some time now, you'll recognize the character from previous games in the franchise like Assassin's Creed Revelations.

10 Servant Of Amun

Amun is the Egyptian god of the sun and air and is also very prominent within Assassin's Creed Origins.  With a name that means "the hidden one," Amun could even be considered the patron deity of the Assassins. With so many references to Amun in-game, particularly when Bayek is delivering his victim's last rites, it makes sense that the Servant Of Amun outfit makes the list.

Available in TheCurse of The Pharoahs DLC, this outfit is earned by completing the "Shield or Blade" sidequest in the Duat and adorns Bayek in garb that is both otherworldly and regal. That said, the mask makes this outfit. Equal parts non-descript and intimidating, no one would want to cross Bayek wearing this outfit in either the land of the living or the dead.

9 Persian Prince

While most of the cooler armor sets are tied to completing challenging tasks or sidequests, the Persian Prince set is one that is fortunately available from the in-game merchants. Thanks to their tendency to rotate stock, it may take multiple visits to find the outfit; however, the Persian Prince should be grabbed as soon as the set is available.

It's a great armor set that combines deep maroon cloth and metal plating, and the flavor text tells players that this armor was "worn by a prince as fleet as the wind."

Hold on! Doesn't Ubisoft have another video game series with a similar name?

8 Bayek's Outfit

As underwhelming as it might seem at first, Bayek's default outfit gets a place on this list because of what we already know about the Assassin's Creed series. It doesn't matter how many outfits you end up with, in the franchise's subsequent sequels, the protagonist is usually honored with their predecessors' original costumes.

For the Assassins, their outfit is often synonymous with their legend and it's always fun seeing the signature outfits of the protagonists in other games. While Bayek's Outfit may be a tad out of place on Connor in Colonial America, it works perfectly for Bayek in Ancient Egypt and is as reliable as it is stylish.

7 Sekhmet Costume

Another armor set inspired by an Egyptian deity, Sekhmet is both a warrior goddess as well as a goddess of healing. Her depictions usually show her with the head of a lioness and the helm of this outfit certainly helps Bayek channel that ferocity.

This outfit is available fairly early on in the game and is rewarded to Bayek after completing the "Lady of Slaughter" quest, which sees Bayek take on the role of the goddess during a festival performance fight in Yamu. Put on a good show for the people and he gets to keep the outfit. Not a bad trade.

6 Bathhouse Towel

As the flavor text of this outfit suggests, this one leaves little to the imagination. This is the garb that Bayek dons during the "End of the Snake" mission, which involves the Medjay hunting down a member of the Order of the Ancients that he believes to be the Snake.

While the intimidation factor of Bayek fully decked out in all his gear is nothing to sneeze at, there's something to be said about a character willing to exact their revenge in just a couple of bath towels.

5 Desert Cobra

When it comes to the setting of Ancient Egypt the snake is an incredibly notorious symbol. Donning the guise of a cobra, then, gives Bayek an appearance that is truly indicative of the Assassin style: Silent, deadly, and ready to strike at any time.

The little details -  from the scale detailing to the fangs on display of the portion that makes up the hood - make this outfit worthwhile. The only downside is that it is available for purchase. The argument could be made that it's worth the money, but we know how hard it can be to justify spending real money on a purely cosmetic item.

4 Mummy

This one may seem gimmicky but gimmicks aren't always bad. What's cooler, after all, than taking on the appearance of a mummy and traversing the desert as a figure that would strike fear into the heart of anyone that would dare cross Bayek's path.

One of the best touches to this outfit, in particular, is the glow that Bayek's eyes get with the headpiece. In cutscenes with the headpiece off, Bayek still maintains an appearance of what a mummy might look like well into the decaying process. This outfit is available as a microtransaction or as a reward from Reda's Heka chest.

3 Isu Armor

Commonly known as "The Ones Who Came Before" by fans of the series, the Isu are the cornerstone of the past aspect of the Assassin's Creed series. They're the reason behind the entire Assassin-Templar conflict, although that reason can be difficult to discern considering the convoluted narrative that arcs across the entire franchise.

This outfit is the quintessential unlock armor set that requires Bayek to visit every stone circle site in the game as well as collect 50 silica from ancient tombs throughout the game as well. Once these objectives have been met, a visit to the Sphinx of Giza will see the otherworldly Isu Armor set enter Bayek's possession.

2 Black Hood

The flavor text of this outfit reads "anyone can kill; few do it with such style," and it's hard to argue that fact with this outfit. One of the best ones in the game, Bayek gains this outfit after completing the "Phylakes' Prey" quest, a mission that sees him successfully killing all 11 Phylakes within the core game.

After locating the chest after defeating the final Phlake, this outfit is the reward. The black with gold trim gear is one of the most impressive ones in the game and a fitting reward for completing the important task of defeating some of the most challenging enemies that Assassin's Creed Origins has to offer.

Arguably the coolest outfit in the game sees Bayek take on the form of one of the most well-known figures of Egyptian mythology. Anubis, the jackal-headed god of the dead and the protector of the underworld, is a deity that commands respect and reverence. For Bayek, this outfit is the reward for completing two of the fights against any of the avatars that appear in the Trial of The Gods DLC, and it gives him the appearance of an otherworldly jackal-headed figure.

The coolest thing about this outfit is that it changes Bayek's appearance down to his skin. He doesn't look like he's wearing an Anubis costume; now, Bayek assumes the form of Anubis himself. As far as Assassin's Creed Origins, the armor sets don't get much cooler than this.

Assassin's Creed Origins: get and upgrade the best weapons and tools for the job

Assassin's Creed Origins has a new weapons and equipment system. You'll be glad you took the time to understand it the first time the bounty hunters come breathing down your neck.

This Assassin's Creed Origins guide page intends to explain the inventory system in full so you know how to get your hands on the best weapons, which ones you should hold on to, what to do with your old gear, what and when to upgrade, where to find silica or carbon crystal, the pros and cons of the different types of weapons and more.

If you spend time looting the environment and completing side quests you'll soon find you have loads of equipment. It can be difficult to see which weapons you should be using at any given time, and which ones you can safely offload.

Take a quick look over this before you dive into Assassin's Creed Origins - it's more of an RPG than you might be expecting, and with the right gear you'll have a much better time.

Need more help> Check in with our Assassin's Creed Origins guide for more tips, such as a our picks of the best Hunter, Seer and Warrior abilities.

Loot rarity

In Assassin's Creed Origins, you get new weapons and shields all the time - from enemy drops, from treasure chests, as quest rewards or via in-game shops. They come in three rarity tiers, helpfully colour coded for easy recognition. The more uncommon a weapon or shield, the more attributes it has, and the more valuable materials you'll earn for dismantling it. Here's the deal:

  • Blue weapons and shields are common and have one attribute. They dismantle into common materials.
  • Purple weapons and shields are rare and have two attributes. They dismantle into rare materials.
  • Golden weapons and shields are legendary and have two to three attributes. Don't dismantle or sell them!

Until you get close to endgame and have all your other equipment upgraded, dismantle your unwanted weapons and shields rather than sell them. You don't really need money except to upgrade weapons, but crafting materials can be more of a chore. You'll be glad to have a big stack of them when you want them.

Don't think twice about dismantling or selling blues and purples, but never dismantle or sell legendary weapons and shields before endgame. These are really infrequent finds and you can upgrade them once you hit endgame and stop finding trash loot at higher levels. Just hang onto them for now, and consult the upgrades section below.

The best source of legendary weapons and shields in Assassin's Creed Origins is papyrus puzzles, followed by side quests, followed by treasure boxes in tombs, forts and bandit camps.

assassins_creed_origins_best_weapons_equipment_upgrade_crafting_materials_guide_6

Quality and attributes: how to tell which weapon is best

With so much loot, it can be difficult to tell at a glance which weapon you should be using.

Each weapon is labelled with its DPS (damage per second), but since each category is used differently, the quality level is a more helpful measure of which one is best.

When it comes to melee weapons, if you're comfortable using every category of weapon (see below), you can just equip your highest quality weapon, or the best weapon in your favourite categories.

On the ranged side of things, it's best to hold on to two bows - one for ranged sniping in stealth, and one for when things kicks off into open conflict. More on that in the weapons category section below.

If you have two weapons of the same quality, look to their rarity. As outlined above, the more rare a weapon is, the more attributes it has, and these can make a big different.

Our favourite weapon attributes are adrenaline build rate up, instant charge, bleed on hit and poison on hit. Looking at the attributes will help you determine which of two otherwise equal weapons is best.

Just once more for the record: never dismantle a legendary weapon or shield. You'll want something with three attributes when things get tougher towards the end of the game! This segues neatly into upgrades.

assassins_creed_origins_best_weapons_equipment_upgrade_crafting_materials_guide_7

Upgrading weapons and shields

If you have an amazing legendary weapon you love using but it's dramatically lower quality than whatever rubbish blue you're carrying around, consider upgrading it.

It's very easy to upgrade weapons and shields: just visit the blacksmith in any town and select upgrade from the vendor menu. You don't need any crafting materials - just a wad of drachmae.

The higher the level you want to bring your gear to, the more expensive the upgrade. It can get pretty pricey at high levels, and so we suggest saving all your cash and upgrading your favourite weapons when you really need them, rather than every few levels. Until you start facing down really tough enemies, any old weapon will do.

One good strategy is to upgrade a favourite legendary weapon or two right before you go off to challenge a bounty hunter, since these are some of the toughest fights in the game - even when you're levelled appropriately.

assassins_creed_origins_best_weapons_equipment_upgrade_crafting_materials_guide_3

Upgrading other equipment

Remember how we suggested dismantling all your unwanted blues and purples? Here's why: the crafting materials you'll get from them can be used to upgrade your other equipment. Your breastplate, bracer, glove, quiver, hidden blade and toolbelt can each be upgraded through multiple tiers, eventually reaching legendary status.

If you're a stealth player, the most important upgrade is the hidden blade. At legendary level, the hidden blade does way more damage in stealth attacks against enemies you can't insta-kill, and will even insta-kill some enemies of a higher level than you.

Our favourite upgrade after that is the quiver. Unless you don't use the bow at all (why!), whether you play stealth or chaotic, having more arrows to hand can be an enormous help. The glove is another good one, as it increases your ranged damage making insta-kill headshots much easier.

Once you have those out of the way, choose from the others according to your playstyle. Upgrading your breastplate increases your health points and is a no brainer, while a better bracer means more weapon damage. Tool upgrades mean more inventory, but you obviously shouldn't bother with that if you haven't unlocked abilities stored on the toolbelt, such as sleep dart, poison dart and firebomb.

assassins_creed_origins_best_weapons_equipment_upgrade_crafting_materials_guide_5

How to get crafting materials like wood and carbon crystal

You'll need a big stack of common, rare and legendary crafting materials to upgrade all your equipment.

We strongly suggest dismantling all spare blue and purple weapons and shields until you have fully upgraded all your equipment, after which you can sell them for drachmae. This saves hunting around for cedarwood, bronze and iron at least, although you'll still have to collect other materials for endgame upgrades.

All common and rare crafting materials can be found in random drops in loot caches, or you can spend two ability points to unlock crafting materials for sale at general vendors if you have plenty of drachmae.

Or you can just go out and get it yourself for free, of course. Here's how to collect all the different resources.

Cedarwood and bronze

Cedarwood and bronze are common crafting materials most easily obtained by breaking down common or rare loot. Ranged weapons yield more cedarwood, while melee weapons and shields offer more bronze.

If you want more, use Senu to track down enemies carrying shipments. Killing the marked guard will award you a stack of the marked material - but you'll have to fight the escorts or do a runner.

Iron

Iron is a rare crafting material. It can be obtained in exactly the same fashion as bronze and cedarwood - just look for the purple bordered icons on your map. It's less frequently found than the other hard materials, so visit endgame areas for best results.

Soft leather and hard leather

Soft leather and hard leather are common crafting materials most easily obtained by hunting animals. Hard leather is dropped by crocodiles and hippopotamuses, whereas soft leather is on herbivores like gazelle and ibex as well as small predators like hyena. Birds do not drop leather.

When roaming the landscape, equip a spear and smack down animals you pass for quick material farming - you don't even have to dismount to pick up the drops. Doing this consistently will quickly build up a big store of materials.

However, when you need lots of soft or hard leather, the easiest way is to go to animal lairs and kill everything, or use Senu to spot nearby animals you can chase down.

Pelts

Pelts are rare crafting materials dropped by large predators like lions and panthers. Obviously extracting them from their owners can be a bit dangerous, but late game areas are bursting with hungry cats to hunt, so you shouldn't have too much trouble.

Carbon Crystal

All final upgrades require carbon crystal, a legendary material. Carbon crystal is found in treasure chests, especially in bandit camps and forts. Visit these locations and use Senu to locate them. It's thin on the ground for a reason but if you clear Treasure points of interest thoroughly you'll soon build up a stack.

If you have plenty of drachmae, you can also buy carbon crystal from the nomad vendor, although there's an inventory limit each day. Scan the world map for the teal mission icon to find this wandering vendor.

Other resources: silica, trinkets and animal trophies

In addition to crafting materials, you'll find several other resources in your inventory as you progress through Assassin's Creed Origins.

Trinkets are just cash items; you don't use them for anything at all. Sell them at any vendor for a handful of drachmae; there's a D-pad shortcut to sell "unnecessary items" en masse, and you should do so.

Animal trophies like hyena ears and heron feathers are likewise not used for anything - you just sell them for cash. There are some side quests that will ask you to collect particular animal trophies, but the good news is by the time you reach them you'll be high level enough that every animal drops trophies, so don't bother holding onto these. Seel them along with your trinkets using the "unnecessary items" shortcut key at any vendor.

Silica, though, ah! Now we're talking. Don't sell this off: silica is a legendary resource used to access optional story content, and if you want to % Assassin's Creed Origins you need a lot. We can't talk about it any further without spoiling things, but other pages on this guide detail it - don't worry.

Silica is found in tombs, like the pyramids and other Old Kingdom monuments and structures, and is frequently just lying in the environment. Hold Up on the D-pad to highlight nearby loot items to find it, and look out for its orange glow.

We have a list of every tomb in Assassin's Creed Origins for silica hunting, although it does feature some slight, location name spoilers.

assassins_creed_origins_best_weapons_equipment_upgrade_crafting_materials_guide_4

Weapon types: melee

There are several melee weapon types in Assassin's Creed Origins, and each has its own moveset and adrenaline (Overpower) attack. Play around with them all and see which ones you like using. If you enjoy chaotic play and have invested in the Warrior end of the skill tree, you'll want to unlock to carry two melee weapons and switch between them at will, so you've got a heavy weapon to bash through tower shields and something more suited to crowd control.

  • Normal swords and Sickle Swords
    The default weapon choice, with medium speed and medium damage. The two categories have different overpower attacks. Useful in almost any situation. You can move around freely while you charge heavy attacks, which is great.
  • Sceptres
    A decent all round weapon with medium range and quick attacks, but not quite as damaging as swords and won't hack through shields. Builds adrenaline very quickly via combo multipliers, and has a rage mode Overpower which refreshes very quickly. You can charge your heavy attack while moving.
  • Dual blades
    Very fast, but with short reach; you'll want to be good at positioning and dodging, and avoid big crowds. No good against agile, dodging enemies who scamper out of reach. Like swords, you can move freely as your charge your heavy attack. The Overpower knocks enemies to the ground and is a little underwhelming.
  • Heavy clubs and heavy blades
    Both slow but extremely powerful and good at staggering heavily defended enemies. It's hard to hit more agile enemies, though. Consider keeping one in your off-hand to switch to after knocking a foe down a charged heavy attack. Mind the axe's charged heavy attack, which includes a quick shove backwards that can deflect incoming blows; it's neat.
  • Spears
    The longest reach of any weapon type and reasonably quick, but does bugger all damage against heavy enemies. Very good for keeping a crowd pr agile enemies under control as you move into a better position, but definitely not a main weapon choice when it comes to boss battles. The heavy charged attack is a forward dash and can be hard to land successfully.

assassins_creed_origins(2)

Weapon types: ranged

If you like using bows at all, you should immediately start spending ability points to unlock the second bow slot. Bows come in four different varieties, and are variously weighted towards chaotic conflict or stealth play - so you'll want one for both situations, probably.

Here's a hot tip: each bow category has its own ammo pool, so if things go pear shaped and you empty your quiver, just open your inventory and equip a different category of bow for a fresh supply. Don't forget to switch back and to refill your ammo supplies when things settle down.

  • Predator bows
    The pure stealth option, predator bows have a very shallow ammo pool but do extreme damage. They have a unique reticule aiming system which is a little trickier than the auto-aim on other bow types, so give yourself time to aim and attack from cover. If you like this style of bow, upgrade your quiver as a priority and check out the Hunter end of the skill tree for some neat abilities.
  • Hunter bows
    A compromise option, hunter bows can be fired quickly enough for use in open conflict, but do way more damage if you draw them back fully, which is most easily achieved in stealth. Not as damaging as predator bows.
  • Warrior bow
    The ancient shotgun, warrior bows fire multiple projectiles at once. The spread on the arrows is huge so you really want to use them at close range, and invest in the upgrade that reduces spread if you draw fully. Not that great, if we're honest, except against big heavy solos and easily headshot pursuing animals like hippos and crocodiles.
  • Quick bows
    Low damage but rapid firing, light bows are perfect for peppering your enemies in open conflict. Equip one, lock on, and ping away at a hippo's head as it rush towards you. You might get away with it!

Shields

Shields are extremely straight forward. Equip the best one you have, with lots of bonus attributes if possible. Remember to use the block button. Shields won't protect you against heavy attacks, though, so remember the dodge command, too. There's nothing else to say here.

‘Assassin’s Creed Origins’ Crafting and Upgrading Guide

Assassin&#;s Creed Origins crafting and upgrading is more streamlined than in previous games. But the introduction of an RPG level system means there&#;s a wider context to how much damage you do.

You might be a lower level than your enemy, but if you&#;ve targeted a specific playstyle and upgraded gear accordingly, you can still win.

Different upgrades also share the required materials. It&#;s possible to play without grinding. But you&#;ll have to make choices about where you spend that iron, and that ultra-rare carbon crystal.

Choose Your Focus

Upgrading different parts of your gear will have the following effects:

  • Bracers: Increase melee attack damage.
  • Breastplate: Increases maximum health.
  • Hidden Blade: Boosts hidden blade damage.
  • Quiver: Increase arrow storage capacity.
  • Stabilizer Glove: Increased ranged attack damage.
  • Tool Pouch: Increase carry capacity for darts and bombs.

One special note here is the hidden blade. Because Origins operates on an RPG level system, stealth attacks against enemies of a higher level are not guaranteed to kill.

When playing stealthily, the difference between a one-hit surprise kill and simply taking off 80 percent of their health is massive. In some cases, it can set off a chain reaction of alarms &#; not a good place to be when the enemies have a few levels on you.

Upgrading your hidden blade can keep you ahead of the curve on this one. You&#;ll be able to instantly take out enemies around two levels above you, but still might want to avoid the more powerful characters.

Assassination Inflation

Different upgrades will cost different materials, but the higher tiers of all of them will require carbon crystals. You can find this hidden in tombs, as rewards for quests, or by solving papyrus puzzles.

You can see the rising costs of each upgrade here, or check out our wikis for the full tables:

AC Origins Crafting Guide
Infogram

The hidden blade and your chestplate might be the most important upgrades, with melee and ranged damage coming in after that. Upgrading the quiver and tool pouch should only be a priority if you&#;re targeting that playstyle.

How To Get Materials

You can dismantle unused weapons in Origins for a little bit extra. Once you&#;ve got the appropriate skill, you can also buy them from vendors. This isn&#;t a long term strategy, though. Do it when you&#;re just a few bronze shy of an upgrade.

The best way to get what you need is to hunt. And the best tool for hunting is Senu.

Ideally, this is something you should do while making your way from one quest to the next. Questing alone and defending yourself will bring you about 80% of what you need in the early game. The rest you&#;ll have to proactively target.

Hippos and crocs will drop hard leather, and smaller animals will drop soft leather. Pelts come from scarier predators like lions. Senu has a brilliant habit of spotting prey that has already been killed, which can be handy when hunting groups of the larger predators. Often when you arrive there will just be some carcasses waiting to be looted.

Long story short: Pick your next destination based on questing, and on the way use Senu to hunt. If you do this all game, you&#;ll never be behind.

Robin&#; HUD

Of course when I say &#;hunt,&#; I don&#;t just mean hunting animals.

The most lucrative sources of metals and pelts will be the convoys travelling from Point A to Point B across the map. These usually consist of three riders: Two guards and a courier. Later on, the courier will be riding a chariot.

You can surprise kill one rider and if you have the appropriate talent, it&#;ll chain into an instant kill of the second rider. The last one shouldn&#;t be too much trouble, but you&#;ll want to take care that he doesn&#;t run away from you.

When they start running, usually it&#;ll be towards a highly fortified area. If they reach their drop-off point, the resources disappear and you&#;re just fighting for closure.

Assassin's Creed Origins Senu crafting hunting

In areas with large lakes, you can also rely on boats to be carrying healthy amounts of resources. Sometimes these are two-person boats, and sometimes they&#;re larger ships with a larger crew.

The larger targets are actually easier, as there&#;s room for stealth play, surprise kills and rolling around. On the smaller boats, there&#;s no room to move.

It&#;s worth noting that in my game, some of the convoys appeared to be &#;mined out&#; after a while. They just stopped appearing. This might mean you have to go to a different zone to rob soldiers. Boats, however, always seemed plentiful.

Legen &#; Wait for It &#; Dary

When it comes to upgrading weapons and shields, you can visit the blacksmith to just pay some straight up drachmas. This gets more expensive as time goes on.

If you collect a legendary weapon halfway through the game, hang onto it. It&#;s worth saving some money to upgrade it closer to endgame &#; especially if it really nails the playstyle you&#;re going for.

Much later in the game, you can have all talent trees pretty much maxed out anyway. But if you sense yourself coming up to the true enemy, or if you&#;re about to embark on a big arena spree or something similar, it&#;s a good time to splurge on the resurrection of your favourite hurtstick.

Carbon Crystals

There&#;s a finite amount of carbon crystals in Egypt. If you want to upgrade everything to its max, you&#;re going to need most of what exists in the game.

If you&#;re following the main questline, you&#;ll often sneak through fortresses or bandit camps that have carbon crystals hidden in treasure chests. Senu can help you find these &#; just press LT to zoom in while flying, and follow the direction the cursor is pointing. When you hover over a point of interest, it&#;ll flag it. Some of these are chests.

Tombs are also a good source of carbon crystals. Occasionally quests will take you inside one of these, but you may also have to seek some out purely for crystal hunting.

The Nomad&#;s Bazaar store carries 30 carbon crystals. This is a wandering merchant which you can find by looking for a blue camel icon on the map.

If all else fails and you&#;re having a hard time finding the necessary materials to upgrade, there&#;s a very natural form of upgrading in the level system. Just level up! By far the most efficient way to do that is questing, and thankfully most of the quests in Origins aren&#;t the &#;collect 10 boar tusks&#; variety.

That makes it feel less like a grind, and the stat increases that come with an extra level are akin to higher quality gear. But if you&#;re aiming to take on quests or enemies multiple levels above you, crafting is what will help you the most.

Origins upgraded ac gear fully

Assassin's Creed: Origins Hidden Blade and Upgrade Guide

The hidden blade is a staple in the Assassin’s Creed franchise and as expected it makes a return in Assassin’s Creed: Origins. While you are not given the hidden blade immediately upon starting the game, it is instead unlocked through story progression. Once you make it past the first initial chapter of the game and find your way to Alexandria and progress the story you will quickly acquire this essential part of any assassin’s arsenal.

However, keep in mind that you will need to upgrade your blade in order to take down more powerful enemies with stealth attacks. Due to the new leveling system and weapon upgrading system this will become essential during the later section of the game. I’ll outline below how to acquire upgrade materials and what you’ll need to not only have the best hidden blade possible but to have the best accessories and weapons as well.

The Hidden Blade and Accessories

In conjunction with Assassin’s Creed: Origin’s new leveling system another new mechanic has been introduced. Your hidden blade and a handful of other accessories will now require upgrades to keep your damage consistent throughout your playthrough. While you can play the game without upgrading these items, it is not highly recommended to proceed this way, even on the easiest difficulty.

Items have been added to Bayek’s Gear tab in order to supplement damage produced by ranged, stealth, or melee combat. These are separated into the Hidden Blade, Stabilizer Glove, and Bracer. Upgrading your hidden blade will increase your stealth attack damage, the stabilizer glove will increase your ranged damage, and lastly, the bracer will increase your melee damage. Each of these items will impact your cumulative damage with stealth based, ranged, or melee attacks.

The Quiver, while not an essential upgrade, allows you to increase your max arrow capacity. If you favor using the bow then I highly advise upgrading your quiver in conjunction with the stabilizer glove. The last item, the Breastplate increases your total health. If you feel as though you are taking too much damage or would like to feel a bit sturdier in combat the breastplate is something you should consider investing in.

Upgrade Materials

Upgrade materials are an essential part of keeping your melee and ranged damage on even playing grounds with your enemies. Bracers have been added to Bayek’s equipment and their level will factor into how much damage you will do with either your bow or whatever melee weapon you have equipped at the time. Not only this but upgrade materials can be used to strengthen your attacks with your hidden blade, making it possible to instantly assassinate enemies with ease. If you find yourself struggling to take down your foes or unable to incapacitate guards or targets, you will want to look into upgrading these accessories.

These materials come in several forms such as animal goods, like leather and hard leather, or with wood and metals, like cedarwood, bronze, and iron. Animal goods can be acquired through hunting animals on the open world map. The other upgrade materials such as cedarwood, bronze, and iron, can be found by locating wandering guard convoys that you’ll need to apprehend in order to acquire these goods.

Senu is will become your best friend when searching the map for materials. Simply tap up on the D-pad to enter eagle mode and you’ll be able to scan the area for crafting materials on your map. When hunting for specific materials make sure you go into your Gear tab and select the item you want to upgrade, this will pin the materials to your tracker and will make it infinitely easier to keep track of the resources you’ll be looking for.

Higher quality crafting materials can be found in higher level regions on the map. That being said, legendary materials like carbon crystal or silica cannot be acquired through animals or guard convoys. You will need to acquire them through the exploration of tombs or through raiding forts or bandit camps. There is also the option to purchase these materials through the nomad vendor, which is marked by a turquoise camel icon on your map, but it is incredibly costly and comes with a daily inventory limit.

You can also break down equipment for upgrade materials. It is highly suggested that you break down any Rare or Regular items - Rare items will have purple backgrounds and Regular items will carry blue backgrounds. These weapons or shields will not have as many attributes or be as powerful as Legendary items, these are indicated with their golden background, when fully upgraded and are better used as fodder for accessories and equipment.

Alternatively you can also acquire a talent from the skill tree that will allow you to purchase upgrade materials from merchants. However, they only have a finite source and these materials will cost you more than your fair share of drachmae. In general, it is better to simply search these materials out and save your drachmae for upgrading your weapons as it begins to get very costly as you increase your level.

Upgrading weapons is much more simplified. You can simply go to any blacksmith on the map and spend drachmae to upgrade your weapon to your current level. I ended up saving most of my drachmae for this purpose. I invested in a Legendary sword and shield to get me through a chunk of encounters that could not otherwise be avoided with stealth. While this strategy served me well, do not be afraid to experiment with other weapons and see what combination work best for you.
