Assassin's Creed

A build combining the Blade of Yumminess and Falx of Olympos engravings

So I just joined the Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey train very, very belatedly. As someone who majored in Classics and who loves open worlds, I knew that, if I started it in earnest, this experience would completely absorb my life, whatever its faults or infelicities, so I have delayed beginning it for years, until I finally buckled over this April Vacation. Fortunately or unfortunately, I was proven right in my suspicion: I’m obsessed. The archeological accuracy of the world, the magic of living out a fantasy of Greek heroism, and the surprising depth of the combat all continue to entice me.

When I encountered The Blade of Yumminess early on in the game at a random blacksmith, however—and it only cost me around 10,000 drachmae at that time—my whole idea of a Fire Build dissipated into the idea of coupling its engraving with the “meta” crit build, along with the Falx of Olympus engraving and 105% Melee Resistance, thus ensuring immunity to melee damage in order to offset the lack of abilities and the 25% max health.

After I first learned about it, I wanted to focus on spears and use the unique Spartan Javelin with +30% Melee Resistance and +30% Spear Damage which you get from the Thaletas quest on Mykonos, but I had already foolishly sided with Kyra, so I realized I wouldn’t be able to go that route till NG+. Then I caught wind of the fact that Auxesia’s Helm of Darkness was available this week—and, P.S.A., it’s only available for a little while longer as of May 1, 2021—the very week when I started playing. Considering that this is one of the rarest items in the game, appearing only once a year, I have to give thanks for my incredible luck in acquiring it in time and providing me with an alternative in NG.

TL;DR: I want to know if this is a good enough endgame build for a TON of damage with the Blade of Yumminess engraving alongside the Falx of Olympos engraving, which also offsets their negatives of the lack of abilities and the gimped health via melee invincibility and 100% crit chance.

It goes without saying that I’ll go for all the Masteries for Melee Resistance, Crit chance while Full Health, and Crit Chance proper, in addition to having the 5% base value of the latter.

Here’s the build (remember Auxesia’s Helm of Darkness basically forces me to use daggers):

Epic Dagger (Main)

+24% Warrior Damage

+50% Crit Damage

+30% Damage with Daggers

+250% Damage but cannot use Abilities

Epic Dagger (Offhand Stat Stick)

+24% Warrior Damage

+50% Crit Damage

+30% Damage with Daggers

+100% Damage but Health is capped at 25%

Epic Bow

+24% Warrior Damage

+10% Crit Chance

+10% All Damage

+Melee Attack Damage applies to Nearby Enemies

Auxesia’s Helm of Darkness

+24% Warrior Damage

+30% Melee Resistance

+30% Damage with Daggers

+20% Crit Chance while Full Health

Epic Torso

+24% Warrior Damage

+50% Crit Damage

+10 All Damage

+20% Health Restored on Death

Epic Gloves

+24% Warrior Damage

+100% Crit Damage while Full Health

+10% Crit Chance

+30% Melee Resistance

Epic Waist

+24% Warrior Damage

+100% Crit Damage while Full Health

+30% Melee Resistance

+10% Crit Chance

Epic Legs

+24% Warrior Damage

+20% Crit Chance while Full Health

+100% Crit Damage while Full Health

+30% Damage with Daggers

Does this seem pretty optimized? Considering how much damage each hit will do, daggers actually don’t seem to be a bad option, since damage will be calculated every time they hit (so, often and hard). The build definitely lacks survivability (aside from “20% Health Restored on Death”—engravings like “Become Isu Enhanced for 15s when Hit” would definitely help, if they could fit), but this seems to me about the tightest possible build within my own parameters (i.e. +350% damage, 25% max health, 100+% melee resistance, 100% crit chance), at least if one’s building it around the helmet by using epic daggers.

I’m definitely not super adroit with all of Odyssey’s systems yet, though, so please let me know if you have any changes or suggestions to further optimize the engravings for this build! I want to try to start farming this up around Level 60 at the earliest, since it’s around then I think when you start getting the Hephaistos’ Workshop stuff etc., but I’m a long way from there. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun to take this to level 99 and NG+ eventually, and lead to an interesting playstyle, so I’d really appreciate any help in steering me in the right direction before then. Thanks in advance, misthioi!
