Best Skills and Abilities to Get in Assassin’s Creed Origins
Assassin’s Creed Origins has the most expansive skill tree the series has seen to date due to how it fully embraces the RPG elements that have permeated the franchise over the years. There are three trees, all of which link together and provide a long list of skills and abilities for players to choose from as they shape Bayek into the warrior they want him to be.
One tree that will get a lot of attention from players is the Warrior tree, which covers melee based skills or abilities. These will prove important later in the game when you deal with heavily armored foes in tight spaces. Below are the best skills and abilities in the tree that you should work towards. The other skills/ abilities not mentioned here are good, but none have as much an effect as the following:
Regeneration – One of the first skills/ abilities you can get, and definitely necessary. Allows you to regen life while in combat (can restore any segment that isn’t fully depleted)
Charge Heavy Attack – Hold R2/RT to charge your heavy, letting you shield break even tower shields and knock down enemies.
Over Power Ultra – Doubles the damage of Overpower, very useful in Arena.
Shield Charge – You can charge and bash enemies with your shield. Breaks most guards, stuns enemies, and can knock them down.
Attack and Push – Holding R1/RB after a light attack does a quick, powerful combo. Great when combined with a weapon that has a status effect like Bleeding.
Overpower Chain Throw – If you get a kill with an Overpower attack, you can tap R1/ RB to throw that victim’s weapon at a nearby enemy.
