Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Those Who Are Treasured Guide

Ubisoft has released a new set of crossover quests players can complete in both Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Both of these quests show different perspectives of similar events, with a culmination leading into the upcoming Year 2 content. On the Odyssey side there is a questline called Those Who Are Treasured. The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Those Who Are Treasured guide below walks you through how to complete this quest.

Where to Start Those Who Are Treasured

There are two methods to start this crossover quest depending on how far into Odyssey you got. Information on accessing the quest comes directly from the Ubisoft official blog:

  1. Have Beaten Game: Those that have beaten the main story of Odyssey will have the quest appear in their quest log and on the world map. The first quest is “A Great Escape.” You can then begin the questline.
  2. Have Not Beaten Game: If you haven’t beaten the game you can still playthrough the new quest. You need to have completed Chapter 1 and reached Megaris. If you meet this requirement is head to the island of Kephallonia and speak to Sami to start the quest “A Great Escape.”

Regardless of the method you will need to accept and start the quest if you wish to take part in it. Once you do you will trigger the first portion called “A Great Escape.”

Complete No Rest for the Misthios

The first portion of the quest line tasks Kassandra with leaving Greece for a more interesting destination. Speak to Sami and select “I’ll take the vacation” when prompted to this portion where you take a vacation to Korfu Island where you catch up six months later. At this point Barnabas will appear asking for your help. During this interaction you will need to choose a couple of dialogue options.

After the cutscene is complete you will take control of Kassandra. You will tasked with retrieving your gear from the hideout. To do this walk forward along the path until you reach the small cave entrance. Enter the cave move forward until you reach the large open room with the statue in it. Look to the right on top of the scaffolding and you will find your gear. Interact with the pile of shields to put it on to get your next objective.

The next objective is to Destroy the Dummies in the room. There are three dummies in the different corners of the cave. Use your bow or swords to take them out. Once the dummies are defeated leave the cave and Return to Barnabas. Speak to Barnabas back at the palace.

Where to Find the First Treasure

Barnabas gives you a treasure hint for you to follow. This hint points you towards the Lake of Katarraton to the north of the Southern Watchtower. Go to the location shown on the map above to find the location of the Stone Tablet. It is on a chair on the dock on the Lake of Katarraton.

Where to find the Instrument of Torture

Once you pick up the tablet you will need to find a new item which is a torture instrument used by the Cyclops of Kephallonia. This item is located in the Alieos Village near a pot filled with water. The village is located to the northwest of the lake so head there now. Once you are in the village make your way to the lower portion by the shore to find a pot with water and a goat walking around it. Interact with it and the “pirate actors” will attack. Defeat them and a cutscene will trigger. During the cutscene you are knocked out.

Recover your Gear

When you regain consciousness you will be in a prison cell. After speaking to the jailer you will need to retrieve your gear. To do this punch the cell door so it breaks and then head along the path in-front of you. There are enemies around so use the bushes along the right to sneak by them. When you are able go right so you are walking along the coast then head back and climb over the shipwreck to reach the chest there. Grab your gear and kill the Jailer and other enemies. Loot the Jailer to get the next clue.
