Hunting Legendary Animals in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
As you run around Greece in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, you will notice an abundance of wildlife around. This wildlife can be hunted for their pelts and other resources to help you on your journey. While most of the animals you hunt will be normal, there exists a number of Legendary Animals to hunt. These animals are much harder to kill, but give some amazing rewards. Let’s take a look at how to go about hunting Legendary Animals in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
How to Start Hunting Legendary Animals
When you arrive in Phokis make your way to the the Temple of Artemis to meet an NPC called Daphnae who is a Daughter of Artemis. Daphnae wants you to hunt a legendary beast, the Kalydonian Boar, located to the west of the temple. Completing this quest for Daphnae will unlock a number of legendary animal hunting quests. All of these quests are housed under “The Godesses’s Hunt” questline on your quest menu.
Note: the NPC in this questline can be romanced. If you want to pursue a romance with her, be sure to select every heart dialogue choice when interacting with her.
The first animal you will be tasked with hunting is the Kalydonian Boar. This legendary animal can be found directly west of the Temple of Artemis. When you arrive in the area pictured above, you will be greeted by the Kalydonian Boar. Killing this animal will earn you its pelt which can be returned to Daphnae for the following:
- Artemis Bow (Legendary Bow).
The Hind of Keryneia
The second animal you will be asked to hunt is a Keryneia. The Keryneia can be found in the marsh on Euboea Island. When you enter the marsh area you will be attacked by the Keryneia. Once you’ve defeated the Keryneia, loot its body to get a number of resources. Return the hind to Daphnae to receive these items:
- 5 Death Arrows.
The Nemean Lion (RL: 22)
Next up on list of legendary animals to hunt is the Nemean lion. You will find this wild lion roaming around the Sinkholes of Herakles. This fight area can be smack dab in the middle of the Sinkholes of Herakles area of Argolis. When you arrive in the area, the lion will attack you immediately. When you take down this legendary beast, return its Nemean Lion Pelt to Daphnae. For completing this hunting task you will get the following items:

To hunt this legendary boar, make your way to the Erymanthos Foothills in Elis. The battle arena is located in an old settlement. Once you reach the settlement, you will be attacked by Erymanthian. Kill it and take the Erymanthian Boar’s Pelt to Daphnae for your rewards:
