Assassin’s Creed Odyssey skill tree has Warrior, Assassin and Hunter paths

We used hands on-time with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to explore what we could of its skill tree, looking through the Warrior, Hunter and Assassin paths.

Alexios — or Kassandra, if you prefer — are wonderfully Spartan. The skills we had unlocked in our hands-on were the famous 400-style Spartan Kick — useful for kicking opponents off ledges into deep, dark pits but also to knock enemies off boats and into shark-infested waters — the shield breaker and one that helped to regain much-needed health.

Here are all the skills that we were able to check out during our hands-on time.

Hunter skill tree

  • Arrow Master: “Be a master of Paralyzing Arrows to knock out targets instead of killing them. Craft arrows in the Inventory Menu.”
  • Multi Shot: “Target up to 4 enemies at the same time and shoot and arrow that deals 150% Hunter damage to each target.”
  • Devastating Shot: “Unleash a blood-thirsty arrow that deals 150% Hunter damage. Effectiveness of Fire and Poison Arrows increases by 150%.”

Warrior skill tree

  • Charged Heavy Attack: “Focus inner strength to unleash a powerful attack that deals 100% Warrior damage, knocks back, and breaks guard.”
  • Spartan Kick: “A legendary kick that knocks a target back and deals 190% Warrior damage. The target won’t be killed, and can be recruited afterward.”
  • Shield Breaker: “Keep those weapons clean and sharp. Increase Warrior damage by 10%.”
  • Second Wind: “Live to fight on, refilling 25% of max Health.”

Assassin skill tree

  • Revelation: “Summon Athena’s sight to reveal all secrets, including chests and hidden passages in a radius of 15 meters. All nearby enemies are tagged.”
  • Rush Assassination: “Launch the Spear or Leonidas at a distant enemy to deal 100% Assassin damage up close. Can be chained 1 time.”
  • Critical Assassination: “Launch a stealth attack with deadly precision, dealing 150% Assassin damage. Must be in range and out of conflict to perform it.”
  • Stealth Master: “Become a silent killer. Noise from movement and Assassination is reduced.”
  • Shadow Assassin: “Assassination and Knock Out damage are increased by 15%. Automatically loot the enemy after an Assassination.”
