The first thing that will jump out at you in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the absence of healing potions or food-type consumer items to regain health points in combat. It’s true, how can you evolve in an RPG if there are no items to be cured ?
Well, you should know that there are several methods to regain health in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It will be up to you to adapt with these methods to regain the advantage of a fight without dying miserably or by running away with your tail between your legs to hope to see your life bar rise without taking an arrow behind your neck (admit that it has already happened to you!).
Recover health with the adrenaline bar :
Look at the bottom of the screen, there is your life bar, but there is also what the game calls the adrenaline bar. It is with this bar made up of segments that you can chain hunter, warrior or assassin skills in combat.
For example, the Sparta kick or the Bull rush are among the skills that use segments of adrenaline. You can consult your list of skills in the « ability » menu of your character. Always keep in mind that using any skill that uses at least one segment allows your character to regain life points. It is the level of Leonidas’ spear that determines how many health points you will recover by using segments of your adrenaline gauge.
✩ Note : As a base, the Leonidas spear restores 5% of health points by using segments. This means that if your ability uses two or three segments per action, then the effect will be 10% or 15% depending on the segments used at one time.
Leonidas’ spear can be improved during the adventure, which will enhance its healing properties when you spend segments of adrenaline in combat. You will find all the information on the improvements of Leonidas’ spear on this page : Wiki Assassin’s Creed Odyssey upgrading the Leonidas spear and get artifact fragments.
Heal yourself with second wind ability :
Very early in the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey adventure, we strongly advise you to activate the « second wind » skill by spending one skill point in the Warrior’s Tree. This skill allows you to instantly heal your character’s injuries up to 25% of their maximum health. When improved to its maximum, the skill will allow you to instantly regain 50% of your health points with each use.
