ACOdyssey SkillTree

The skill tree in Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

The skill tree is an in-game user interface that allows the player to upgrade the abilities of Kassandra or Alexios during the Peloponnesian War. A total of 44 skills can be unlocked and, not counting the 9 separate baseline abilities, are assigned to one of 3 trees, Hunter, Warrior, or Assassin. Skill points are earned every time the player conducts a microtransaction or gains 1000 XP. In turn, the points are used to unlock skills, which are either passive in nature or require a command prompt to be activated.[1]

Up to 8 (16)* individual skills can be equipped at any time, split evenly between the Melee and Ranged Ability Wheels. The path through the trees is not linear, with players able to allocate points anywhere as they see fit. All abilities have three levels of upgrades, the lowest level needing 1 Skill Point to unlock and higher levels needing more. With the exceptions of Fire Mastery and Poison Mastery, no skill has an absolute requirement of another particular prerequisite.[1]

Trivia

  • Despite the player character possessing a set of skills under the Assassin category, the use of the word is anachronistic. "Assassin" comes from the Romanization of asāsīn (أساسين) in Arabic,[2] a language from the Semitic branch of the Afro-Asiatic language family[3] that has its earliest stages date to c.9th century BC.[4] In contrast, Greek is from the Hellenic branch of the Indo-European language family and is significantly older,[5] its own proto-stages dating to c.3200 BC.[6]
