How to Get Orichalcum Ore in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey there is a special vendor names Oikos. Oikos carries Epic and Legendary items which you can buy using Orichalcum. Orichaclcum is considered a secondary currency, and acquiring it can be a little confusing. To help, here’s how to get Orichaclcum Ore in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

Complete Daily and Weekly Message Board Quests

To earn Orichalcum Ore, make your way to a Message Board in one the various cities across Greece. On the message board you will see a number of quests that have a turquoise symbol on them. These quests reward you with Orichaclcum for completing them. There are two types you can complete:

  • Daily: You have 24 hours to complete the quest before it expires.
  • Weekly: You have 1 week to complete the quest before it expires. Typically harder to complete.

The harder the quest, the longer amount of time it will take you to complete. The same goes for how much Orichaclcum you receive for completion of a quest (harder = more). Completing daily and weekly Orichalcum quests are both good ways of earning the special currency, but they aren’t the only way.

Finding Orichalcum Fragments

As you travel through Greece you may have stumbled across an Orichalcum Fragment. This material is basically one Orichaclum Ore. Ubisoft has hidden a ton of Orichalcum Fragments throughout Greece for you to find as you explore the game world. Unfortunately, most of the locations are incredibly obscure and easily missable. That’s why the developers sell a map showing you where to find every single Orichalcum Fragment in the game (we’ve got the map right here). Anyways, when you find a Orichalcum Fragment in the world, you can grab it to add +1 to your total.

What Can You Spend Orichalcum Ore On?

Oikos Guide

The special vendor Oikos of the Olympians sells Epic to Legendary items.

To be perfectly honest with you, not a lot. There is a sole vendor that requires Orichalcum, named Oikos. Oikos can be found in Pilgrim’s Landing on Phokis. This vendor carries four items (3 Epic, 1 Legendary), and a Loot Box called the Olympian Gift. Oikos updates his offerings every week. Costs for each item are as follows:

  • Olympian Gift only costs 20 Orichalcum Ore
  • 40 Orichalcum Ore for Epic Quality Items.
  • 100 Orichalcum Ore for Legendary Quality Items.

Realistically, your best approach to Oikos is buying the Olympian Gifts unless he is selling a particular item you really, really want. Good luck!
