Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Engravings

There are multiple ways of unlocking Engravings that you can apply to weapon or armor depending on the nature of the Engraving itself. The most convenient way would be to simply purchase them from the Blacksmith but the options there would be limited.

The Rare Engravings need to be unlocked. You can do this by completing various tasks and challenges that require you to kill a certain number of enemies, explore certain areas, and reach other milestones.
