Assassin’s Creed: Origins Side Quests Guide

For any RPG game, side quests are very essential and Assassin’s Creed: Origins does not disappoint on this. You can play many side quests and they are very nicely made.

They offer tons of extra content and are much fun to play. Along with the fun element, they are also important because they will help you level up easily.

One of the core elements of any RPG is leveling up and you can take down only those enemies who are near your level. As you progress in the game, the enemies you face will be much higher in level than yours.

Simply following the story missions will not be enough for you. You will need to level up more and the best way to level up easily is playing side quests.

Levelling not only means that you will be able to take down harder enemies, it also means that you will be able to wear better armor, take part in more quests, deal more damage to the enemy and will have increased health every time you level up.

Therefore, your best bet here is to finish as many side quests as possible to stay up to the level of your enemies. Increasing your level will also make the main missions much easier for you to handle.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins Gear Guide

Assassin’s Creed: Origins is an RPG so your gear plays an important role in ensuring your survival in the world. You will find many weapons during your journey and most of these items will be free for you, as you will find them as loot. Most of the weapons will be close to your level and many will be very good to use as well.

We will recommend that for the early part of the game when you have limited resources, you should avoid buying weapons as you can easily find many weapons by looting.

You do not want to end up in a situation where you spend a lot of money on a weapon by buying it from a blacksmith and then you find a weapon that is better than it is. So stick to looting weapons more rather than purchasing them.

There are also loot boxes that you can purchase from the Nomad’s bazar. Find the little boy selling loot boxes and interact with the boy if you want to buy one.

These boxes contain powerful crafting materials or a legendary item inside. These boxes are not cheap and will cost you quite a lot of money so we will recommend that you do not buy them an early game as well.

Save your money early on and buy these boxes when you have reached the maximum level so that the weapons you get are of higher level as well.

Scan for Loot Often

Assassin’s Creed: Origins gives you the opportunity to scan the area around you for loot. When you have cleared an area from enemies or have reached a new place, simply scan the area by pressing the upper button on the d-pad.

This will reveal all nearby loot to you and you can then easily loot all items that you need. You can always sell the useless items so we recommend that you collect as many items as you can during your journey.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins Combat Guide

Assassin’s Creed: Origins offers you great freedom when it comes to combat. You can pick from three different combat styles. You can either choose stealth, ranged or go face to face in combat with hammers and swords.

This freedom makes player of every skill level happy, as some specific players prefer stealthy combat while some prefer all guns blazing attacks.

This freedom of combat allows you to finish the quests in a number of ways. You are not forced to follow a linear combat style and can pick from any style that you want.

You can choose from a variety of weapons that suit your combat style and become the ultimate assassin in Assassin’s Creed: Origins.

Managing Inventory

Just like any other RPG, you get a limited amount of storage in your inventory and it will not be soon before you run out of inventory space. You can manage your inventory by two ways.

First is that you sell all your unnecessary items. Find any merchant near you, interact with him and sell him all the items that you do not require.

A second way to manage your inventory is to dismantle the items that you do not use. When you dismantle an item, you get many useful crating materials.

These crafting materials help you upgrade your weapons and other gear. We recommend that you do not sell your items to the merchant. Rather you must dismantle them, as the items are very useful in upgrading your current weapons and gear.

Another thing to remember is that you will collect many trinkets on your journey. You must not sell these trinkets unless you unlock the ‘salesman’ ability, which grants you 25% bonus to the sale price of the trinkets.

Collect as many trinkets as you can and keep collecting them. As soon as you unlock this ability, you can go a vendor and sell all your collected trinkets for a boost.
