The Memphis region in Assassin's Creed: Origins has one peculiar side quest recommended for players who have reached Level 22. It is called Taimhotep's Song. To complete it, you will need to collect a couple of Flamingo tongues and Heron feathers.

Flamingos are easy to identify because of their distinctive pink feathers, but how do you know what Herons look like? Follow this guide to find out how to identify them and get their precious feathers.

How to Get Heron Feathers in Assassin's Creed: Origins

Step 1: Travel to Faiyum Oasis Harbor

After you speak to Taimhotep in Memphis, a small region that is located between the Atef-Pehu and Ineb-Hedjet Nomes, you will be involved in a rather unusual fetch quest that will require you to gather a few things for an ancient ritual.

You will find the first item, a fertility talisman, in the magical goods shop located south of the temple basin. After you've found the blue talisman, you will need to travel to the Faiyum region either through Atef-Pehu Nome in the south or Saqqara Nome in the west.

Locate the Faiyum Oasis harbor in the eastern part of the region (see the screenshot above for exact location), and prepare your bow for some hunting.

Step 2: Collect Heron Feathers

Unlike Flamingos that can be seen almost anywhere in the region, Herons usually roam exclusively above the water or close to water sources. So move to the nearest river bank and look out for white-black birds soaring in the sky -- these are the elusive Heron birds.

Take out your bow and shoot two or more birds. When you see the birds falling from the sky, run toward them and collect at least two feathers, which is required by the Taimhotep's Song quest.

When you have all the ingredients, you can return to Memphis and finish the quest.

Assassin's Creed Origins Guide: How to Find and Use Cedarwood https://www.gameskinny.com/x8ze9/assassins-creed-origins-guide-how-to-find-and-use-cedarwood https://www.gameskinny.com/x8ze9/assassins-creed-origins-guide-how-to-find-and-use-cedarwood Fri, 03 Nov 2017 14:52:05 -0400 Kengaskhan

Given that Assassin's Creed: Origins takes place in a desert, it makes sense that wood would be a pretty scarce resource. However, if you want to boost your Bracer’s melee damage bonus or your Quiver’s arrow capacity, you’ll need as much Cedarwood as you can get.

While you can find some Cedarwood on the corpses of your fallen enemies, it’s not a very fast or reliable way to stockpile the resource.

How to Farm Cedarwood in Assassin's Creed: Origins

If you want to farm Cedarwood, there are two recommended methods -- the first is very straightforward, as all you have to do is dismantle certain weapons (bows tend to yield a lot of wood, for example) to get some Cedarwood.

The second option is a little more complex, as it involves you tracking down the person carrying the supply of wood. First, you’ll need to use your eagle, Senu, to identify and mark your target.

Then, as Bayek, you’ll have to make your way to the mark and slay whoever the poor soul is that’s carrying your Cedarwood. That's it; pretty cut and dry.

How to Get The Hidden Blade in Assassin's Creed: Origins https://www.gameskinny.com/mivmw/how-to-get-the-hidden-blade-in-assassins-creed-origins https://www.gameskinny.com/mivmw/how-to-get-the-hidden-blade-in-assassins-creed-origins Fri, 03 Nov 2017 13:56:46 -0400 Kengaskhan

The hidden blade is one of the most iconic weapons in the Assassin’s Creed series, so it may come as a bit of a surprise to some that you don’t start with one in Assassin's Creed: Origins.

In fact, the reason you don’t start with the hidden blade is because the one you do receive later in the game is quite literally the first hidden blade ever used by a member of the Brotherhood (which doesn’t even technically exist at the time the AC:O takes place).

How to Get the Hidden Blade in Assassin's Creed: Origins

Acquiring the Hidden Blade in Origins is pretty straightforward -- you’ll be able to get it when you arrive in Alexandria, during the main story quest, "Aya". (If you’re keeping count, it’s the fifth quest in the main questline, excluding the Prologue.)

Simply find and speak to Aya, and you’ll trigger a cutscene where she’ll present to you the first Hidden Blade.

As skilled as Bayek is with his bare hands, there are times where you just really need someone to die quickly and quietly, and a stealthy, unarmed takedown won’t be enough. However, with the Hidden Blade, you’ll be able to execute stealth-kills with the ease of a true assassin.

Assassin's Creed Origins Guide: Tomb of Menkaure Location https://www.gameskinny.com/mrufc/assassins-creed-origins-guide-tomb-of-menkaure-location https://www.gameskinny.com/mrufc/assassins-creed-origins-guide-tomb-of-menkaure-location Tue, 31 Oct 2017 11:29:35 -0400 Sergey_3847

Have you ever thought of what could be hidden inside the ancient pyramids in Assassin's Creed: Origins? If you know where to look for these secret locations, you can retreive hidden tablets that will grant you bonus ability points.

One of the most elusive locations in the game is the Tomb of Menkaure. If you can't figure out how to get inside this tomb, then follow our step-by-step guide and get your reward.

How to Find the Tomb of Menkaure in Assassin's Creed: Origins

Step 1: Locate the Pyramid of Menkaure

The Tomb of Menkaure is located in the third pyramid of the Giza region that stands between the Saqqara and Khensu Nomes. This pyramid is the smallest one in the area, so you will have no trouble identifying it (refer to the screenshot above for an exact location).

As soon as you arrive at the pyramid, use your Senu vision to locate the entrance at one of the walls. You will actually see two entrances, but you need to enter the bottom one.

Step 2: Find the Ancient Tablet

As you go through the entrance hall, you must follow it to the very end until you see the turn to right. Instead of going any further, look back and up -- you will see another secret entrance above the hall you've just been running through.

Climb up the secret entrance and walk straight until you reach the dead end. Again look up and you will notice that the ceiling is made up of wood planks. Take out your bow and destroy the wooden ceiling.

Go up through the broken ceiling into the secret chamber, and there you will see an ancient tablet of Menkaure. Interact with the tablet and get your bonus ability point.

Assassin's Creed Origins Guide: Temple of Million Years Location https://www.gameskinny.com/k7dzk/assassins-creed-origins-guide-temple-of-million-years-location https://www.gameskinny.com/k7dzk/assassins-creed-origins-guide-temple-of-million-years-location Mon, 30 Oct 2017 12:07:56 -0400 Sergey_3847

The Sapi-Res Nome area in Assassin's Creed: Origins hides many secrets, and one of them is the Temple of Million Years that is not indicated on the map. But you will have to find it if you want to learn about the mysterious connection of this hidden temple and the town of Letopolis.

Locating the temple may take many unproductive hours of your gameplay, if you don't know where to look. But all you need is to follow this guide, and soon, you will arrive at this secret location.

How to Find the Temple of Million Years in Assassin's Creed: Origins

The location of the temple is marked by a red circle

Step 1: Speak to Nehi in Letopolis

You will start the New Kid in Town side quest in the town of Letopolis located in the south-eastern part of Sapi-Res Nome. At the entrance of the city, you will see a preacher in white robes speaking to a number of people. Talk to him and he will ask you to speak to Nehi.

Nehi's farm is located in the western part of the town, where you will find him in a desparate position -- his cart with a couple of oxen has gone missing in the desert outside of town. He will ask you to bring them back.

Step 2: Investigate the Mysterious Hieroglyphs

Follow the marker on the map and set out into the desert. Fight a gang of thugs that stole the cart, and bring it back to Nehi. As a result, Nehi will reveal to you that there are some strange-looking hieroglyphs inside his house. He will also suggest that you speak to Ramessu, since he knows a lot more about these things than anyone else in the town.

Ramessu turns out to be the preacher from the beginning of the quest, who will admit that these writings on the wall have been reported by three other people in the town. Use your Senu vision to detect all three locations in Letopolis, and speak to the owners of those places about the hieroglyphs.

Step 3: Find the Temple of Million Years

After you visit all three houses, the final message about the location of the secret temple will be revealed. It seems that the temple is located to the west of Letopolis (see the screenshot above for exact location), and is guarded by stone lionesses.

Head out to the west of town, and soon you will arrive at the sight of giant statues that are guarding the hidden entrance into the temple buried under the sand dunes. 

You will need to deal with a few thugs guarding the area, and then you will be able to enter the temple through a crack in the wall.

Assassin's Creed: Origins Launch Issues, Other Bug Fixes https://www.gameskinny.com/0nyoq/assassins-creed-origins-launch-issues-other-bug-fixes https://www.gameskinny.com/0nyoq/assassins-creed-origins-launch-issues-other-bug-fixes Fri, 27 Oct 2017 12:18:48 -0400 Sergey_3847

The much-anticipated Assassin's Creed: Origins released today and is already experiencing serious launch issues, such as game crashes, FPS drops, connectivity problems, and more. And although there's not currently a timeframe on any official resolutions, Ubisoft is currently working on a patch to fix all these issues. 

But what do you do if you've already purchased Assassin's Creed: Origins, and can't to get started in spite of these issues? Follow our guide for temporary workarounds to these bugs and glitches.

How to Fix Assassin's Creed: Origins Launch Issues

If you're like some players and can't launch Assassin's Creed Origin's, here's what you can do:

Step 1: Check the Game's System Requirements Against Your System's Specs

Assassin's Creed: Origins requires a high-end machine to run properly. These are the minimum specs to run the game: 

  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • Processor: Intel Core i3-550, AMD Phenom II X4 955
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660; GTX 750 Ti; GTX 950; GTX 1050; AMD Radeon HD 6970; HD 7870; R9 270; R9 370; or RX 460
  • RAM: 4GB
Step 2: Update Your Graphics Card Drivers

In the case that your configuration meets the game's minimum system requirements and you still can't run AC:O, then the issue might be fixed by updating your graphics card drivers. 

Step 3: Change Your Graphics Settings

If you can run the game, but notice FPS hiccups, then you may want to adjust the graphics settings in the game's menu. Here's how to do that: 

  1. Go to "Options," and choose "Display."
  2. Then experiment with the VSync settings which cap the FPS rate to your monitor's refresh rate.
  3. If you have a low-end machine, then set the VSync to either double- or triple-buffered.
  4. If you have a high-end PC, then turn off VSync entirely.

How to Fix Steam and Uplay Activation Issues in Assassin's Creed: Origins

Recently, Ubisoft has changed the way your Steam-purchased games are activated in Uplay. If you can't launch Assassin's Creed: Origins from Steam  because of the Uplay key, then follow these steps:

  1. Open Task manager on your PC (Ctrl+Shift+Esc)
  2. Go to "Processes" and close the "UbisoftGameLauncher.exe"
  3. Then uninstall the Uplay client from your PC using the Control Panel
  4. Download and install the latest version of Uplay from uplay.com
  5. If you did everything right, the game should not ask you for a Uplay activation key when you next launch the game

How to Fix Game Crashes in Assassin's Creed: Origins

Players with 32-core PC systems have reported game crashes while playing AC:O. Ubisoft is aware of the issue and is working hard to deliver an official patch as soon as possible.

Currently, however, there is only one available workaround to this problem. Be aware that this method will also influence the performance of other software installed on your PC. 

To fix game crashes: 

  1. Use "Windows Key + R" to open Windows' run prompt
  2. In the search field enter "msconfig" and click OK
  3. Go to "Boot" and choose "Advanced Options"
  4. Check the box called "Number of processors" and pick any number below 32.
  5. Apply the changes and reboot your computer

Following these steps should keep you from experiencing game crashes moving forward. 

How to Fix Connectivity Issues in Assassin's Creed: Origins

Players have also experienced connectivity issues when launching Assassin's Creed: Origins. Here are a few suggestions on how to fix some of those problems:

  • Restart your modem or router
    •  You'll need to shut down and unplug all of your internet hardware and wait for at least one minute before turning it back on.
  • Set up port forwarding
    1. Open your router's settings and go to "Port Forwarding" or "Virtual Servers."
    2. In the "Protocol" line, enter the following ports for Assassin's Creed: Origins: TCP & UDP: 80, 443
  • Flush the DNS cache 
    • If none of the above methods improved your connectivity problems, then consider flushing your DNS cache, which stores the IP addresses of web servers:
      • Use "Windows Key + R" to open Windows' Run prompt
      • In the search field, enter "cmd" and click OK
      • In the open window, type "ipconfig /flushdns" and press "Enter"

---

These steps should easily fix most of AC:O's launch issues and bugs. However, if you'd rather not tinker with your computer or game settings, Ubisoft will be releasing an official patch soon. 

If you're looking for more tips, tricks, and strategies for AC:O, make sure to check out our Assassin's Creed: Origins guides

3 Best and Quickest Ways for Leveling Up in Assassin's Creed: Origins https://www.gameskinny.com/rvdyd/3-best-and-quickest-ways-for-leveling-up-inassassins-creed-origins https://www.gameskinny.com/rvdyd/3-best-and-quickest-ways-for-leveling-up-inassassins-creed-origins Fri, 27 Oct 2017 11:41:07 -0400 Sergey_3847

Assassin's Creed: Origins not only offers the action-RPG experience that the series is so well-known for but also a whole set of innovative additions to the series' gameplay and characters. 

One such new addition is the leveling system which opens up new skills and abilities for players, helping them defeat tough enemies and open new areas of the map. Follow this quick AC:O guide to find out how to do that efficiently.

How to Level Up Quickly in Assassin's Creed: Origins

Leveling in Assassin's Creed: Origins is crucial not only for unlocking new skills but also for progressing through the game's main missions. Just like other games with RPG elements, the further you go in the game, the higher your level should be. Otherwise, you will not be able to defeat new waves of high-level enemies.

You can also level up your gear and weapons separately by approaching blacksmiths in towns and villages that will improve any of your items for a bit of gold, which is very much recommended.

So in order to get those much-desired XP points as quickly as possible, you need to do the following:

Way #1: Complete Side Quests

There are two things you need to pay attention to here: missions highlighted by exclamation marks and those highlighted by blue icons. 

This first side-mission type, indicated by exclamation marks on the map, grants you the most XP points and is the best and quickest way to level up in the game.

The second type, limited community quests, appears as a blue icon on the map. These are often randomized, but they provide a decent amount of experience. 

In short: do as many side missions as you can, and you will soon have more than enough XP to unlock all the best abilities in the game.

Way #2: Complete Synchronization Points

Vantage points are the hallmark of the Assassin's Creed series, and this time, they play an even more important role in the game: they can help you level.

If you're focusing on completing as many sync points as you possibly can, you will not only reveal the hidden parts of the map (allowing you to fast travel), but you'll also earn tons of XP points in the process.

Way #3: Earn Assassination Bonuses

You can kill enemies in many different ways in Assassin's Creed: Origins. The more elaborate the kill, the more XP bonus points you will earn.

To do this, try to approach enemies from behind or jump on them from above. If you can kill enemies without getting detected, you'll earn even more experience. You can also get extra experience points by shooting enemies in the head with the bow and arrow. 

---

Use these three methods to level up in Assassin's Creed: Origins and overpower all of your enemies.
