In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, you’re going to get your hands on tons of equipment and some of it good, and some of it not so good. However, the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Legendary Equipment are pieces of equipment that you want to keep. The reason being is twofold. The first, the pieces of equipment are powerful and rise in power the more you upgrade them. The second, the legendary equipment’s origin story is from famous Greek heroes which is worth holding onto on its own.

I mean, who doesn’t want to wear the armor, the Golden Fleece, the same armor that Jason, leader of the Argonauts, wore during his voyage. Also, I want to take this time to make it known that the more you continue on through the game, you’ll get more and more pieces of Legendary Equipment which you are also required to keep.

There are also epic, rare and common pieces of equipment that you acquire throughout the game. However, these may not take as much precedence over the legendary equipment but make no mistake, the legendary equipment is worth hoarding. You can also dismantle some equipment for the materials but more on that later. Overall, legendary equipment can grow to be the strongest pieces of equipment in the entire game and I’ll talk about how in this post.

Legendary Equipment

The Legendary Equipment, as I mentioned, is among the strongest in the game and the secret to making it stronger is by upgrading it. You’re going to come across all kinds of people, places and even do sidequests where you get some assassin’s creed odyssey legendary equipment. One of the biggest mistakes that you can make is dismantling or selling the legendary equipment because I feel nothing says Greek Mythology like legendary weapons and armor from legendary Greek figures.

Incidentally, the legendary equipment is worth more and sells for more as well. Now, I know for some gamers that know this, legendary equipment have materials that you can use to craft or upgrade other equipment upon dismantling it. You may find yourself switching between common, epic, rare and legendary pieces of equipment as you progress through the game.

But, my advice, keep the legendary equipment and upgrade it to its max potential. I would say upgrade it every 2-4 levels. The rationale, the power boost is usually enough to slay and deal heavy damage to even the strongest enemy. I’m not saying go up against Steropes, but what I am saying is to upgrade your legendary gear and weapons so they’re all you need; that’s all I use is legendary equipment.

Legendary vs. Epic Gear

Legendary gear is usually gold in nature and is named after a Greek individual of great importance like Theseus or Prometheus etc. Epic gear is usually after a not so powerful Greek figure like an Athenian Commander or even a Spartan Strategoi. Legendary Gear and Epic Gear differ on many levels like the Epic Gear is a little less strong than the Legendary Gear.

Make no mistake, Epic Gear is very strong and can deal great amounts of damage to your enemies with the right moves and abilities. However, I still prize the assassin’s creed odyssey legendary equipment above all else. To put a fine point on this, you won’t have to switch equipment or go back and forth trying to use pieces of different equipment.

By sticking with just legendary gear, you won’t need for epic or common or even rare equipment which, if we’re being honest, is all about personal preference at the end of the day. Simply, using the legendary equipment is a personal preference for me because I love Greek Mythology. There are other gamers who like using epic or common gear because of the power boost or defense rating.

So my advice, play the game how you want and that includes gear preference but if nothing says “living the Greek life” like using the legendary equipment. I’ll leave that there.

Keep and Upgrade all Legendary Gear

Okay, I know this may seem a little far-fetched but if you’re anything like me or is copying what I’m doing or you’ve thought of it, keep and upgrade your legendary gear; that includes weapons, armor, helmet etc. The reason, the perks of course. As I mentioned before, using the assassin’s creed odyssey legendary equipment, you won’t need to use any other equipment and if I’m being honest, upgrading the legendary equipment makes it more than strong enough to compete with any weapon in the game.

What I particularly love about the legendary equipment is that there is no way for it to become outclassed by equipment or gear that you find in the game. Yes, there are stronger pieces of equipment but there’s also more legendary equipment which is a big deal if you’re a collector of Greek artifacts like myself.

So I would make it a priority to keep and upgrade all legendary gear, if you have other legendary gear then you can definitely switch it out but never with epic or rare or common gear. You can still use an epic or rare axe, staff or even dagger if you need to get a one-up on your enemies; that’s up to you.

Remember, Dismantle

Now, you may find that you’re getting overloaded with all of the equipment that you’re ignoring in the epic, common and rare category; the solution is simple, dismantle. More times than not, you’re going to need a lot of leather to upgrade your legendary gear so why not dismantle all of the extra gear that’s not the legendary.

In so doing, you’ll have the materials you need a million times over in order to upgrade your legendary weapons and whatnot. From experience, its easy to get caught up in just wanting to use the legendary equipment to pound your opponent into the ground.

But, eventually you’re going to find that your equipment is no longer dealing the type of damage you’re dishing out and your defense is faltering so it is very important to upgrade your legendary gear by any means necessary and that includes dismantling the gear you have collected and that from the rare, common or epic class so to speak.

When you get to dismantling the other gear that you have that you’re not using, you’ll find that you won’t need to go out and hunt for the materials because dismantling other pieces of gear takes care of that for you.


Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Legendary Equipment is the strongest and most long-lasting equipment in the entire game, it can be said that you have an obligatory duty to hold onto all legendary equipment because the payoff is going to be huge like outshining the epic gear. Dismantling the epic, common and rare gear can give you the power to upgrade all of your legendary equipment which you want.

So what do you think of my post, do you think I’m a little off or do you think I’m right on? Leave me a message and I’ll get back to you immediately. Thank you and Happy gaming.

  2. Michel Michel

    When I started reading this article I thought the equipment that you were talking about was real hands on memorabilia that Creed lovers could own and keep, but reading on I see it is equipment that you earn in the game as a player in order to make yourself stronger and gain more powers. 

    I see the gold legendary equipment is the best to have. Nice to know that it can be sold to other players but if you are an avid player yourself, why would you want to? Thanks for the dismantling tip before upgrading as I never knew about this.

      No problem Michel, definitely keep all legendary equipment because it’ll come in handy. Plus, the legendary equipment is the most powerful equipment in the game so selling or dismantling is not an option
