Immortals Fenyx Rising: Best Upgrades to Unlock Early
In Immortals Fenyx Rising, you'll need to know how to handle enemies and puzzles in equal measure. In this guide, we'll walk you through the best upgrades and skills to unlock early in Immortals Fenyx Rising since you'll want to be sure you are properly equipped for your adventures ahead.
The upgrade tree in Immortals Fenyx Rising has several branches, focusing on Skills, God Powers, and potion upgrades in the Cauldron of Circe. The best upgrades are spread across each of these branches, so here's what you need to know in order to keep Fenyx in fighting shape.
Immortals Fenyx Rising Best Upgrades
Divine Health Gain
Arguably the most valuable of all upgrades available in the game don't come at the River Styx Cistern like so many others do. You'll find this one at any Cauldron of Circe (identified as a purple potion bottle on your map).
There you should spend enough Amber to improve your attack potion, specifically the Divine Health Gain passive ability. With this upgrade, you gain some health back, between 5 and 20% depending on how much you've upgraded the ability, whenever you land a hit.
This is critical for some of the tougher boss battles, as you may need more than health and defense potions to stay alive.
Herakle's Leap is what separates the early combat maneuvers from their much-improved later stages.
With Herakle's Leap, you can launch yourself toward any enemy and keep your combo meter going. This is particularly useful against flying enemies such as griffins, but it's just as viable against cerberuses, cyclopses, and the rest of Greek mythos' most formidable foes.
Charged Are's Wrath
Are's Wrath is one of the God Powers that Fenyx can acquire in Immortals, and once you've got it, two upgrades become available to make it even better.
The slightly better one is Charged Are's Wrath, which amplifies the damage of the power to 1,191, stun to a massive 4,764, and doubles its area of effect.
This move will use ample stamina, but it's so worth it, especially when you are dealing with a tough crowd of bad guys and need that one big hit to clear the room.
Are's Wrath — Multi-Hits
Are's Wrath is so helpful that we're including both of its upgraded variants in this guide. It's well worth your coins to have both abilities, as unlocking one does not cancel out or replace the other. They can coexist and each works in different scenarios.
With Multi-Hit, you take more swings at the enemies around you and do so faster at the cost of some of the dominant final damage numbers. This variant on Are's Wrath delivers four hits in total, dealing up to 595 damage and 1,190 stun.
Phosphor is your phoenix friend who aids you in a number of ways, but none are better than Cloak. While Immortals already allows you to sneak about in high grass or bushes, Phosphor's Cloak acts like an invisibility shield, which means your opportunities for stealth are dramatically increased.
Getting the first hit with a stealth attack plays like getting the first attack turn in a strategy game. It does massive damage and sets you off on the right foot for the rest of a battle. You can even upgrade it to keep cloak active after using it the first time. It's all-around a great way to diversify your combat in Immortals.
Telekinesis Gathering makes the cut of our best upgrades to unlock in Immortals Fenyx Rising because even though it's more of a quality-of-life upgrade, it's a pretty big one.
With this skill, any bunches of resources you see, such as pomegranates or amber, can be gathered in one press of a button. Fenyx will collect all of them within a small radius, saving lots of time for players who would otherwise be stuck doing the equivalent of pulling weeds.
Immortals isn't a farm sim, so after you've equipped Fenyx with several combat and puzzle upgrades, give them the gift of Telekinesis Gathering, and you'll thank the gods you did.
That's it for our best upgrades for potions, skills, and powers for the early portions of Immortals Fenyx Rising. If you found this guide helpful, consider giving it a share.
