Medusa boss location:
To fight the Medusa boss and get the "In Perseus's Image" achievement for defeating her,
complete the "Romancing The Stone Garden" (Lesbos Island), "Love's Long Shadow", "Hard
To Artemis", "Heavy Is The Spear", "Keys To Happiness?", and "Writhing Dead" side quests.
Medusa is the endboss of this questline, found in the Petrified Temple on Lesbos. All
of these quests take place on Lesbos Island, which is a high-level endgame region.
Medusa is a Level 50 boss -- so you need to be at least Level 46 to have a chance.

Easy "Stink Eye" achievement:
First, successfully complete Sequence 1 of the story. At the end of the sequence,
you will encounter the "Cyclops" boss. There will be a funny cutscene in which
your character puts the Cyclop's eye in a goat's rectum. You can later find this
eye again. Simply return after Sequence 1 and kill some random goats anywhere on
Kephallonia (starting region). After approximately 10-20 goat kills (it is a random
drop), it should drop. Goats can easily be killed with the bow from a distance.
Make sure to loot the goats after killing them. Goats are found everywhere in that
region, and the eye can be dropped anywhere on the island.

How to Reset Character Abilities:
To do that, press the button indicated in the lower right corner of your screen. Keep
in mind that each reset costs a small amount of Drachmae. This amount will increase
each time you reset your ABILITIES.

How to Skip Intro Videos:
Follow these simple steps to skip intro videos.

- Go to [path-to-game]\videos.
- Delete or rename "Amd.bk2" and "UbisoftLogo.bk2".
- Go to videos\en or whichever language you use.
- Delete or rename "Epilepsy.bk2", "pc_warningSaving.bk2" and "warning_disclaimer.bk2".

Cyclops boss location:
To fight the Cyclops boss and get the "Eye On The Prize" achievement for defeating him,
complete the "A God Among Men" (Kythera Island), "Left To Dye" (Kythera Island), and
"Stairway To Olympos" (Kythera Island) side quests. As part of this questline, you will
find the Cyclops boss on the Forgotten Isle (he is not accessible outside of this quest).
Note: This has nothing to do with the Sequence 1 story boss that has the same name.
The Cyclops of this questline is a high-level one-eyed monster.

Medusa boss location:
To fight the Medusa boss and get the "In Perseus's Image" achievement for defeating her,
complete the "Romancing The Stone Garden" (Lesbos Island), "Love's Long Shadow", "Hard
To Artemis", "Heavy Is The Spear", "Keys To Happiness?", and "Writhing Dead" side quests.
Medusa is the endboss of this questline, found in the Petrified Temple on Lesbos. All
of these quests take place on Lesbos Island, which is a high-level endgame region.
Medusa is a Level 50 boss -- so you need to be at least Level 46 to have a chance.

Minotaur boss location:
To fight the Minotaur boss and get the "A-maze-ing Victory!" achievement for defeating
him, complete the "Myths And Minotaurs" (Messara Island), "Of Minotaurs And Men" (Messara
Island), and "He Waits" (Messara Island) side quests. The Minotaur is the endboss of this
questline, found in the Labyrinth Of Lost Souls. Simply complete the side quests to fight
him.

Becoming Champion of the Arena:
The Arena is found in Pephka, the region in the bottom right of the world map. Defeat all
five enemies in the Arena to become Champion and get the "Are You Not Entertained?"
achievement. The last enemy is Level 50, but you can defeat him at Level 45 with good
gear. At Level 50, the enemy is not too difficult to defeat. Note: Defeating just the
Level 50 arena champ is not enough to get the "Are You Not Entertained?" achievement
-- you must defeat all five enemies.

All Sphinx Riddle Solutions:
All 12 Riddle Solutions that the Sphinx can give you in AC Odyssey. You will be given 3
riddles to solve out of a total of 12 that she can give you.

When you solve all 3, you need to select the symbols on the wall which match to your
answers. For example, if you had the Sun riddle you'd select the Sun.

Hummingbird:
As small as your thumb, I am light in the air. You may hear me before you see me,
but trust that I’m there.

Tree:
In Spring I am gay in handsome array; in summer more clothing I wear; when colder it
grows, I fling off my clothes; and in winter quite naked appear.

Sun:
Never resting, never still; moving silently from hill to hill; it does not walk, run,
or trot; all is cool where it is not.

Memory:
What can bring back the dead; make you cry, make you laugh, make you young; i
s born in an instant, yet lasts a lifetime.

Moon:
What is always old and sometimes new; never sad, sometimes blue; never empty, but
sometimes full; never pushes, always pulls.

Mountain:
What is large, yet never grows; has roots that cannot be seen; and is taller than trees.

Stars:
At night they come without being fetched, and by day they are lost without being stolen

Spider:
I create my lair with earthen string, and dispatch my prey with a biting sting.

Time:
This thing all things devours: birds, beasts, trees, flowers; gnaws iron, bites steel,
grinds hard stones to meal; slays kings, ruins towns; and beats high mountains down.

Death:
Some try to hide, some try to cheat; but time will show, we always will meet. Try as
you might to guess my name, I promise you'll know when you I do claim.

River:
What can run, but never walks; has a mouth, but never talks; has a head, but never
weeps, has a bed, but never sleeps.

Fish:
I'm alive, but without breath; I’m as cold in life as in death; I'm never thirsty,
though I always drink.

How can I replenish my quiver?:
As a Hunter, you may find that you run out of arrows after taking down a whole fort
of soldiers. Thankfully, years of mercenary work have taught you how to craft arrows
yourself!

To stack up on ammo, open your Inventory and click on the Quiver. In the next menu,
highlight the type of arrow you would like to craft you will get an option to craft
a single arrow or craft the maximum you can carry of that particular arrow type.

To Upgrade your bow or any other piece of your gear, you need to visit the blacksmith.

Save Game Locations For Assassins’s Creed: Odyssey:
These are the save file locations by platform:

PC (Steam):

Tips & Tricks:
- Don’t buy the pegasus set at low level, you’ll never be able to afford the upgrade
costs, even buying out of the helix store for resources. It looks cool, but don’t
do it, wait till 50.

- It is easiest to find crafting materials that are outside (amongst trees, etc.) at
night. They sparkle quite a bit, and that sparkle is harder to see in the daylight.
You’re going to need a lot more than you probably realize.

- If you have to clear a restricted area, and you don’t want to kill someone you need
to eliminate to clear the area (maybe you’ve sided with Sparta and don’t want to kill
any Spartans, but you want to clear a Spartan held restricted area), you can sometimes
recruit that person as a lieutenant. Recruiting that person will still complete the
area. This doesn’t always work, as you have to be able to completely knock the person
out to be able to recruit him.

- Break down all gear you won’t use. You’ll need those resources for engraving at the
blacksmith, upgrading your ship etc.

- Restats aren’t free, you spend some drachmea doing it. Depending on your level and
the amount of skills you invested in will affect the price of redoing it.

- Parrying stuns your opponents and gives you a temporary damage boost. Dodging at the
right moment is what slows down time, not parrying.

- You can toggle the helmet visuals on and off in the Inventory menu so that you still
get the defence and effects but you won’t see it on your character.

- When a higher ranked bounty hunter or base captain is giving you trouble lure them on
top of a tall building, edge or near a cliff and spartan kick them off. Insta kills
them when they hit the ground. But be weary because the heavies do not get pushed back
from it too much. However they are slow and easy to dodge.

- There is a God of War Easter egg near megaris in a cave called the cave of kratos
where you get a familiar chest piece with a leather shoulder pad with some really
familiar red paint on your skin.

- The Spartan Kick in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is actually very helpful because it
allows you to break an enemy’s guard. You can also use it to kick an enemy off a
cliff without killing them, not that that’s necessarily the aim of the game with all
the assassinating involved.

- Another reason to pick the Spartan kick early on is that the kick itself is non-lethal,
which can be used to knock mercenaries unconscious and recruit them afterwards.

- If you dodge at the right time you also get the slow motion moment. You do not have
to parry all the time. Plus if you dodge correctly you get behind enemies so you can
launch your attacks and blast through them and maybe hit more than one enemy in a
straight line.

Combat and Stealth:

Combat:
- Conquest Battles are large set piece encounters that occur when a Leader is eliminated,
and involves players choosing a side between two armies of up to 150 soldiers. (Sparta or
Athens) The battles provide the best rewards in the game.

- The three skill trees are; Hunter, Warrior or Assassin. There are also unique abilities
for the Spear of Leonidas.

- Some new abilities include Rush Assassinate, Rain of Arrows, as well as being able to
perform the infamous Sparta Kick.

- Up to 12 abilities can be selected for use in combat, resulting in a wide variety of
playstyles and builds.

- It is possible to respec your abilities at any time.

- Certain special abilities can now be mapped to the D Pad of controllers.

- Bows have their own weapon wheel this time, to ease quicker selection.

- There is a heavier emphasis on the Adrenaline bar, which fills up during combat, and
enables you to unleash Special Attacks.

- Engravings can be used at a Blacksmith to improve the quality of your equipped weaponry
and armor, such as adding perks that improve adrenaline generation.

- Confirmed weaponry includes: Swords, Daggers, Heavy Blunt weapons, Heavy Bladed weapons,
Staffs, Spears, Bows and Arrows. You will again be able to equip and swap between two
melee weapons during combat.

- As with Origins, weapons have their own rarity (Common, Rare, Epic, or Legendary), as
well as various attributes and perks.

- Shields are no longer equippable.

- There is a variety of different arrow types, including paralyzing, poison and fire
arrows. A special ability allows Ghost Arrows to fire through walls. It is possible to
shoot arrows from cover.

- Your ship crew can be summoned into combat to assist you by an ability known as Call
To Arms, which works mechanically like the Brotherhood summon of older games.

Stealth:
- There is no Hidden Blade in the game. Assassination is performed by neck snap,
or by the Leonidas Spear.
- Enemies can be knocked out for non-lethal takedowns.
- It is once more possible to hide in bushes and shrubbery.
- Bodies can be picked up and hidden.
- The whistle distraction ability returns.

Romancing options:
To romance someone in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, you just need to find them and complete
their side or main quests. Watch for a "romance" option, which just means sex. The
following is a list of all characters you can sleep with. There will be a quick cutscene
that shows how your character seals the deal. Note: Romance has no effect on future
romances. You can romance all characters in the game, if desired. There are no repercussions
or negative effects from romancing any character, even if you romance women and men.
Your gender selection at the start of the game also does not change who you can romance.

Female:
- Odessa: She is a young relative of Odysseus. She can be found and rescued on Ithaka,
in Odysseus's Palace, to begin her quests.
- Auxesia: She is an elderly woman that gives you a quest. She can be found in Phokis,
on Mount Parnassos.
- Xenia: She is a bronze-skinned pirate that sends you on quests to locate hidden treasures.
- Roxana: She is a tough fighter. She can be found on the small island of Hydrea, where
she is sparring.
- Kyra: She is a long-hair Spartan rebel soldier. She is located in the Silver Islands
region, on the isle of Mykonos. She can be found in the Porphyrion Cave.
- Daphnae: She is a young "Daughter of Artemis". She can be found near the Temple Of
Artemis, in the Phokis region.

Male:
- Kosta: He is a thick, bearded blacksmith that is located on on Lokris Island.
He can be found in the port town on Red Lake Bay.
- Alkibiades: He is a lean, silver-haired young man. He can be found in Athens, in
the Attika region. You will meet him in Perikles's house in Sequence 4.
- Lykaon: He is a lean, rugged healer. He can be found in Phokis, in a town in the
Sacred Lands of Apollo.

How to Level Up Quickly:
This is basically a guide for those who think that jumping up 5 to 7 levels for 1 Main
quest is hard. So, i'm here to kinda ease the difficulty.

Introduction:
Welcome to my guide of getting XP quickly in AC Odyssey.

There's only a few simple steps you gotta follow and you'll be increasing your XP farm
rate in no time!

First off, lets understand how XP in the game works:

The game defines an event. An event is basically when a certain "action" or "thing" occurs,
like the death of a mercenary or polemarch or the discovery of a new area.
The event triggers a system response which gives you XP points.

Simple, right?
So, all we have to do is make sure many of these events occur so as to maximize our XP gain.

Bounties and Contracts:
Jumping into the first way to earn loads of XP, we have bounties and contracts.

Now, if you've played the game for over an hour or two, you'll probably already know what
bounties and contracts are. For those who don't know, they are basically tasks you have to
complete or people you have to kill, sometimes within a limited time period

Thing is, the game is very generous when it comes to awarding XP for these events. So the
moment you get the chance, pick them up from the "Message Board"

Keep watching the map for nearby objective markers in white, because these are your quests
that aren't being tracked right now, but exist in the region. They are usually bounty
quests(because bounties are all over the place) and making a quick detour to kill a few
bandits for a quick XP boost isn't a bad deal.

As for contracts, just take them from the board and keep them where they are. As and how
you progress through your odyssey, you'll eventually keep doing them in the background,
because they usually tell you to steal certain "nation treasures" or kill certain polemarchs
or free/kill a number of people across Greece.

Quests and Individuals
Keep in mind that while bounties and contracts give you loads of drachmae and XP, you can
never go wrong with vanilla side quests. There's nothing as satisfying as helping an NPC
find which corner of the ocean did they misplace their valuable vase in.

Another thing to know is, certain individuals give you XP on killing them, probably because
it is a bit hard to kill them and takes a bit of time. Go around Greece hunting for these
characters because apart from the XP, they also drop some pretty sweet gear.

Important Side Quests
If you see the side quest icon outlined in gold, keep in mind that it's a "main-side-quest",
meaning that it will give you a huge amount of XP, and might probably be mandatory to do to
progress some objective of some main quest.

Do these quests asap, because if you don't do them as and when they appear, doing it later
becomes a hassle with all the fast travelling and horseback riding you need to do in each
quest.

Timed and Choice-based Quests:
These are pretty self explanatory.

For those who don't understand it, they are side quests that are available for a limited
time or those which have a choice that impacts your storyline in some way. They are pretty
interesting and fun to do and usually provide a decent amount of XP as a reward, but not as
much as the "main-side-quests"

Keep in mind that the timers do expire and you can lose a quest you might be currently
doing, so incase you pick up a timed quest, be watchful of the timer and do it as soon as
you get the chance.

Unlimited Mercenaries?:
Mercenaries above you on the rankings are set in stone while those below you are randomly
generated. Those above you on the rankings sometimes have legendary gear and it is recommended
for you to actively track them down to advance on the rankings.

Each tier unlocks some perks such as discounts on upgrading the ship and at the blacksmith.

How exactly does one properly engage in Naval Combat?:
- Sinking a ship will heal some damage.

- Cleaving heals more, alongside giving you more resources.

- A boarding will fully heal the ship.

- Enemy ships successfuly set on fire will completely stop and take DoT.

- Bracing will drastically reduce all damage from all sources.

- There is, appropriately, a wind-up to ramming speed and increase the damage to max when
you see wind rushing past the sides of the boat.

- You can drift and turn quickly by holding the "Slow Down" button, which is useful for
turning your ship to avoid a ram from an enemy ship, or have the majority of a volley miss.

- Arrows are your long-range weapons. They can set ships on fire from a distance.

- Spears are the close range engagement weapons, ram aside. Spears on fire leave fire on
the water, which makes it useful for slow, large ships.

- Upgraded spears and arrows can cause Weakpoints to appear, which are glowing sections
that can be struck for critical damage.

Easily defeat Legendary Animals:
To easily defeat Legendary Animals, you can trick enemies into fighting them for you.
First, build up your Wanted Meter until a Mercenary is dispatched to hunt you. The higher
the Wanted Level, the more powerful the Mercenary will be. You will normally just need a
Mercenary that is a little higher level than you. Wait until a Mercenary appears nearby.
Once they see you, run to the Legendary Hunt location. The Mercenary will follow you for
a long time. As long as you are on the island with the Legendary Hunt, you should be able
to lure the Mercenary into a fight. Go to the Legendary Animal and start fighting. Once
the Mercenary and the Animal engage, you can move back and allow them to fight. The
Legendary Animal will normally win in a fight against a Mercenary. While the animal is
distracted by the Mercenary, attack it from behind to get in some easy hits, then back
away. Once the Mercenary is killed, quickly kill the animal. This trick also works with
other enemies. For example, if there is a bandit camp nearby, you can lure the entire
group of enemies (and leader) to the Legendary Animal to fight it.
