How to Beat Isfet Easily in Assassin’s Creed Origins
One of the many side quests you’ll come across in Assassin’s Creed Origins is called Lady of Slaughter and has players enter a battle for the god Sekhmet’s honor. You will have to fight another warrior representing Isfet, a rival god (and the people need you to win). It’s all part of some festival in Assassin’s Creed Origins, but you still want to show your best.
This fight in Assassin’s Creed Origins is fairly simple. You’re given a shield and a spear and can’t change weapons, and your opponent, Isfet, will be using the same. The one major difference is that Isfet is huge, so you don’t want to block any of his attacks. Instead, you want to always dodge to the side whenever he charges at you and starts swinging. When he’s done, use R2/RT (which is your heavy attack) to break his guard, then go to town on him with a quick combo using your light attack (R1/RB). Just keep repeating this until your Overpower ability is charged.
Once charged, trigger Overpower by pressing R1 + R2/ RB + RT which will send you into a highly-aggressive state. This is when you’re going to do the bulk of your damage on Isfet. Start off with your heavy to break Isfet’s guard, then start wailing on him with rapid, more powerful combos. You should be able to finish him off at this point, if not, he’ll be at low health, so go back to the basic combos from before until you win.
