Side Quests are a part of any RPG and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is no different. These missions can be a great way to get away from the main story if you are bored. Our Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Side Quests Walkthrough Guide will guide you through all of the optional quests in the game.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Side Quests
Since we are still discovering new Side Missions, we will continue to update this AC:OD Guide in the near future. Remember to check back at a later date to figure out how to complete all side quests that are currently not available.
Birds of a Feather
Accept this quest from Xenia once you are Level 28 or higher and are done with Chapter #6.
Head on towards the Keos Island and once you have received the quest, you will see that you need to use only 1 of the maps to get to the right place.
Only look at the Feather Spots and then get to the area of the one which has the treasure to the south of an island.
Loot the vases and then talk to the NPC near them. From here, track nearby quest to find the waypoints to the area where the treasure is and take care of all enemies to loot them and get the Feather Collectible.
You should have a Level of 28 or higher for this quest. You also need to complete Birds of a Feather before you attempt this quest.
Accept the quest from Xenia on Keos Island and then head on towards the southern coast of Attika Region.
Here, there are 5 areas that you need to investigate. Gather the hints and get to the 2 guys standing on the cliffs. From here, jump into the water and you can find the bracelet at the bottom of the ocean. Return to Xenia to get the next quest.
She Who Controls the Seas
Get this quest from Xenia and then go to Makedonia (Triple Peninsula of Chalkidike).
Go inside the underwater cavern and then follow the glowing jellyfish. Swim up when you are stuck to get to the other side behind the obstacle. There are a few enemies and a big chest for you to find at the end of the cavern.
Throw the Dice
Start by talking to the merchant in the Argolis Harbor. Destroy his goods to get the location of the map. Then head to the location and steal the maps. You can kill the enemies but it is easy to sneak past them too.
There is only one map per item so you do not need to know which map is accurate. Find Pan’s Flute in Attika inside the Cave of Pan. Appolo’s Lyre is at the temple in Euboea and you can take 2 of these items to Xenia to get the final quest.
Start by going to Olouros Fortress. You can get in without alerting any enemies and find the coffer in the right side of the fortress towards the east.
It is found in a house and has a blue glow on it. Loot the coffer and then take it back to Xenia. This will finish this questline and you will get the A Pirate’s Life for Me Trophy/Achievement for yourself.
This quest is quite different from the rest as it presents upon you a moral dilemma. In order to start this quest, you need to go and talk to your little friend Phoibe in Markos’ Vineyard.
This quest becomes available to you during the Eye for an Eye quest. You will be told of a fallen village of Kausos. Follow the quest markers to get to the village, and there you face the option to kill the villagers or to let them go.
If you spare the villagers, you will need to kill the priest and his guards.
After that, you will have the option to take their money which will leave them in the area to die or to not take their money. Whichever one you choose, these people will get to Kephallonia and it will be ravaged with the plague.
If you decide to kill these people, then all of the innocent family including the kids will die. However, it does seem to stop the plague.
Whether the plague will come to Kephallonia through some other means is yet to be seen but if you want to be on the safe side and have the heart to do it, then killing the villagers is probably the safest option.
A Family’s Legacy
Once you are done with United Front in Story Sequence 7, select this quest from the quest log. Then, use the eagle to scan the ruins once you are at the quest marker to find an Ancient Tablet.
The tablet marks a door as the quest marker and you need to make your way there. Once you are at the door, follow the beams of light and align the mirrors.
At the first mirror, hit the barricade blocking it. After that, hit the first door blocking the path and slide down the zipline. Move the 3 wooden racks to the opposite side in order to have the light reflect of this mirror as well.
Once you are done with this, head to the last mirror and push it backward. After that, push the tall rack and then the rack on the left to the right.
Now, pull the small cart forward and then pull the tall rack that you pushed earlier back towards you in order to open the door and head in.
Once you are through the door, you need to go through the lava-filled rooms by using the rocks on the ground. You will meet your actual father Pythagoras and find the city of Atlantis at the end.
The city will be unlocked for you to explore after a cutscene and you will earn the Birthright Trophy/Achievement.
A Ship Came Sailing
You can find this quest at the Kephallonia Islands. When you meet Davos, you are overlooking the Kleptous bay where your target is. Call Ikaros and narrow your search.
Either move past the enemies using arrows or assassinations depending on what you think will be best for the situation. Once you are near Orneos, free him from his cage.
Now, you need to escort Orneos to safety. Remember that he will start running as soon as he is freed so you need to make sure that you have defeated the enemies that lie on his path or he will die.
Once you have freed Orneos and escorted him back, talk to Davos to end the quest.
A Small Odyssey
This quest is given to you at the Kephallonia Islands. Once you have freed the prisoner that is being held behind Odysseus’ palace, you can attempt this quest.
At the start, Odessa runs through a break in the wall and stops near the palace. Here, you can take out any enemies that are in the palace. Make sure that you take out all enemies using any means necessary before you get to the prisoner.
Once all of the bandits have been eliminated, there is not much left to do in the quest. All you need to do is to follow Odessa around as she talks about the palace and once the both of you are near the edge of the water, this quest will be complete.
A Pirate’s Life
This quest is found at the Isle of Thisvi. First, you need to find and then save the brother of the Carpenter from the Pirates.
There is a Tekton on the waters and he is the one who wants you to save his brother from the Pirates that have destroyed his ship. He lets you know that he will become a part of your crew if you are able to save him.
Get to your ship and follow the quest marker to the Pirate Island. Here, kill all of the pirates using either your assassination techniques or your arrows.
Remember that you must avoid alerting the enemies as there is no escape route for you and if you are caught, chances are that all but the most skilled of players would end up dying.
Once all of the enemies have been killed, open the cage of the prisoner and carry him to safety. After that, you can talk to the Carpenter to make him join your crew.
Remember that even if you fail to rescue his brother, the Carpenter will still join your crew provided you tell him about the events in a gentle manner.

For this elixir, you need to find and hunt both bears and deer. These are found to the northwest of your starting point. They should be scattered right around the road and you will be able to kill them easily.
However, if you fail to find them, head to the Bear Grotto to kill them over there. Once you have done everything that was asked of you, you could head back to Auxesia and give her what she wants.
There might even be a surprise waiting for you if you play your cards right!
This quest is found in Lakonia in Sparta. You will find a Spartan Commander known as Lysander giving commands to his soldiers.
He will tell you that he wants to weaken the Athenian army by killing some of their Polemarchs in the forts all over the world. In order to complete this quest, you need to gather Arthenian Seals.
There will be many forts available to you on the map depending on the choices that you have made and where you are in the main storyline.
Check the map to see which regions the Athenians currently control. Then, look for a fort in that region and fast travel to it. Use your bird to scan for the Polemarchs.
Once you have done that, you need to kill them in whatever way that you see fit. Once you have killed them, you must loot their items and take them back to the opposing commander to confirm that they are dead.
Deliver all of the Athenian Seals to Lysander and this quest will be complete.
You can find this quest in Pilgrim’s Landing. Head to the coast near the Hill of the Sacred War. The place where you want to end up is somewhat east of the Bulis Military Camp.

The other one can be found if you look behind the statue and investigate the crack on the wall. Once you notice the crack, you can slip through it and proceed deeper into the cave.
You will find some enemies here which are not that difficult to beat, so you should be able to clear them all without facing any major difficulties.
However, it is still best if you do not try to make noise and have all of their attention focused on you. Try to use the stealthier method of carefully walking up to them one by one and then assassinating them.
Once you have killed all of the bandits in the area, make sure that you loot all of them as they have the treasure that you require.

Although it is best to focus on the main storyline, you will not get the full experience that the guys behind Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey have planned unless you have sidetracked just a little to explore the side quests the world has to offer.
Moreover, these World Quests will award you with XP for leveling up and some good gear and equipment for your trouble. Here is how you complete every side quest in the game.
The best way of going about which the side quests is by seeing which one’s closer to your level so you don’t find anything too challenging for you own good.
Of course, there is level scaling that you should be concerned about, so when looking at quests recommended for similar levels, go with the one that awards you with the most XP.
Now, let us take a look at all the World Quests divided according to their district on the map.

Only XP is awarded either way, but your relationship with Kira on the latter option may not flourish as much.
A Night to Remember
After completing all of the above quests on Mykonos Island, say your final goodbyes to the citizens of Delos.
First speak with Barnabas following the quest marker in Tavern Point, then proceed to converse with Kira. If you tell her to ‘find a new purpose’ or ‘forget the gods’, these are the only choices that let her forget the suicidal thoughts, otherwise, things do not go so well for her.
Conversing with Thaletas depends on your relationship with Kira. If it was swelling, then Thaletas has more reasons to hate you and will try to attack and you will need to kill him.
Joining the celebration, Barnabas offers you three choices to either give a speech, depart the island or spend a little more time with the people. After you have given the speech eventually, you will leave the island and will have completed the quest.
Grin and Bear it
After acquiring the quest from Iola in Sanctuary of Apollo, Birthplace of Apollo on the island of Delos, be ready to hunt down the white bear who wounded Iola.
The bear can be found in the Lost Bear Den, north of Sacred Land of Artemis. Now proceed to inspect the area for clues around the shipwreck, on the destroyed ship itself, and bring your findings to Iola to receive Drachmae and XP as rewards.
A Business Opportunity
You can trigger the start of this quest in two ways: either from the message board in southern Sporades or by interacting with Markos at Artemisia Fort. Markos or the Con of Kos can be freed once the guards around are cleared.
Escort him back to Aion Vineyard via the Sphongos Cave to complete the quest and earn Ancient Helmet along with a little XP.
Dead or Alive
From the message boards of Astypalia City, highlands of Asklepiades in Kos Island, take up the contract to hunt down the Con of Kos in Artemis Fort.
Upon finding out the identity of him being Markos, the above quest ‘A Business Opportunity’ takes over this one. You still receive some XP though.
The Con of the Cons
Another contract similar to the one above also found on the message boards of Astypalia City. Either of these quests led to ‘A Business Opportunity’ quest being triggered, though XP is earned anyways.
