How to Beat Viridovix and Diovicos in Assassin’s Creed Origins
When hunting the Crocodile in Assassin’s Creed Origins, Bayek will have to enter the arena to try and figure out just who this particular member of the Order of the Ancients actually is. At the end of his stint as a gladiator, he’s going to have to take out the arena’s top dogs Viridovix and Diovicos. They are both really powerful, but if you approach them the right way, they aren’t that difficult.
Pick whatever weapon you’re most comfortable with to take on Viridovix and Diovicos. The most important aspect of this fight is dodging and using your heavy attack (preferably a charged heavy attack if you’ve unlocked the ability). A shield charge can work against Viridovix, but you don’t want to charge at Diovicos. You’ll be fighting along a friend of yours who is seeking glory in the arena. She can serve as a distraction for the start of the fight. Let her fight Diovicos, and have Bayek go for Viridovix (he’s the one with the large weapon).
Viridovix is pretty easy to take down. Use your heavy attack to stun him, get in a few hits, then back away before he starts swinging. He has a jumping attack that can be easily sidestepped, leaving him open for attack. You can take Viridovix out pretty easily as long as Diovicos is distracted, leaving you with just one target remaining.
Chances are that while you were fighting Viridovix, Diovicos will knock out your friend. He’s an interesting combatant. For starters, he uses no weapons, but that doesn’t make him any easier to fight. Diovicos likes to tackle, grapple, and use powerful melee combos. You’ll want to use the same approach that you did with his brother, only you want to keep large gaps between you and let him close the distance. If you approach him there’s a good chance he’ll grab and do a ton of damage. However, if he goes for you, you can sidestep and punish him before creating distance again. Just continue to do that until you win.
There you have it, two juggernauts in Assassin’s Creed Origins felled by your blade. For more on the game, be sure to check out our wiki.
