Complete the side quest Forging Siwa in Faiyum.

Berserker Blade (Sickle Sword)
Berserker Blade (Sickle Sword)
The design on this blade is exquisite, you won’t do much better in terms of looking the part. However, with only level 1 perks and a low quality overall, it’s best you keep this one for the display case.

Assassins Creed Origins Legendary Weapons Guide – Dual Sword

Storm Blades (Dual Sword)
Storm Blades (Dual Sword)

Assassins Creed Origins Legendary Weapons Guide – Bows

Bow Of Wadjet (Light Bow)
Bow Of Wadjet (Light Bow)
Deadly accurate and deadly fast. The Bow of Wadjet has a level 3 Rate of Fire increase and level 2 Critical Hit Damage alongside a Poison on Hit effect. Even with the small chance of poison, when you’re firing 5 arrows a second, one of them is going to hit the spot.

Complete the Curse of Wadjet quest in Faiyum.

The Fourth Plague (Warrior Bow)
The Fourth Plague (Warrior Bow)

Deathstorm (Hunter Bow)

This one isn’t easy. You need to defeat two War Elephants in combat in Uab Nome. For more information check out our guide on where to find War Elephants and how to kill them.

Neith (Light Bow)
Neith (Light Bow)
A bow of legend that lives up to its name. Neith has an incredible potential for damage output. Level 3 Rate of Fire with an Extra Arrow perk means you’ve always got one left in the tank and the bleeding on hit is a great way to keep up the damage when you do eventually have to reload.

Tough one. You need to complete every Papyrus puzzle in Assassins Creed Origins. It will be the reward given for the final puzzle.

Smoke And Mirrors (Predator Bow)
Smoke And Mirrors
A dangerous Predator Bow that is just that, a pure predator. Features level 3 Stealth Damage and level 2 Critical Hit Rate, its damage is matched only by its range. Oh, and there’s a chance you set your targets ablaze too. Ra would be pleased.

This is a possible reward from the Nomad’s Bazaar chests.

The Crimson Death (Warrior Bow)
The Crimson Death (Warrior Bow)
Level 2 Precision and a Health for Critical bonus is the best this bow has to offer. A high damage rate and rate of fire but a little lacking in the perks department.

Jackals Gaze (Warrior Bow)
Jackals Gaze (Warrior Bow)
One of the most impressive Warrior Bow’s in the game. A level 4 Precision perk with a level 3 Bleeding on Hit is supported by a Health on Hit rare perk. Great all round bow that will leave your enemies looking for Anubis himself.

Assassins Creed Origins Legendary Shields Guide

Snakes On A Shield (Shield)
Snakes On A Shield (Shield)
A shield I’ve kept at my side since I began. Level 3 Adrenaline on Parry makes it a fantastic weapon for building your Adrenaline bar quickly. Level 3 Damage Absorption can turn the tide of a battle and the Poison on Block lets you remain on the offensive, even while you’re defending.

This is a bonus sword offered with the Digital Deluxe Pre-Order.

Phalangite Shield (Shield)
Phalangite Shield (Shield)
Another fantastic shield option with a Poison on Block effect. Coupled with the Adrenaline on Parry and Ranged Resistance, it’s the perfect upgrade to the Snakes on a Shield without the huge cost of upgrading.

This is a reward for completing Papyrus Puzzles. I obtained it during the Stone Fungus puzzle.

Reinforced Shield (Shield)
Reinforced Shield (Shield)
While lacking the wow factor of its defensive compadres, the Reinforced Shield is the stout one of the group. He’s the first to arrive on the field of battle and the last to leave. Maximum Melee Resistance and level 2 Ranged Resistance make this a fantastic all-around shield for defensive purposes.

This was a reward for completing Sobeks Rage Papyrus Puzzle.

Djosers Pride (Shield)
Djosers Pride (Shield)
The defensive stats on this shield are so incredible, it will knock your enemies out cold. Literally. A sleep on block makes it the perfect tool to turtle up in a corner when outnumbered and it’s additional perks add to its already impressive defensive capabilities.

You get the The Fourth Plague (Warrior Bow) from killing The Iron Bull Phylakes.

Compendium (Shield)
Compendium (Shield
Arguably the greatest looking shield in all of Egypt, and it’s not just about the appearance. A max level Ranged Resistance and a level 3 Damage Absorption Rate, combined with a Bleeding on Block makes this shield one of the best the game has to offer.

I got this killing the general in the side quest Playing With Fire in the Green Mountains.

  • Dyre Logan

    Another error in one of these puzzles. Sobek’s Rage does NOT award a Legendary Shield, it awards you a crappy scepter called Acacia Rod. Please edit this so as to not mislead your readers. Thank you. I need a Legendary Shield in order to achieve the trophy and have yet to find any in the game.

    • It’s not an error. That’s where I got the shield. I checked my rewards alongside another player for the first few puzzles and they were the same, so I assumed it was universal. It could possibly be randomized but it could also be a reward for completing X amount of puzzles. If you’re within level range, the Djosers Pride shield is easy to get.

      • Dyre Logan

        I have quite a few puzzles (15) solved thus far, but no Legendary Shield has been awarded me. Ubisoft “generously” gave its players just enough helix credits to not be able to do anything with it. 200 credits. That’s it. Everything is 250-500 credits. I won’t be spending more money on this game as I already paid 60 bucks for it. I am sure I will find a legendary shield somewhere. It’s funny, but Djoser’s Pride is said on several websites, that it can be looted from a blacksmith. These are erroneous because I have never seen a blacksmith have any shield higher than rare. Another funny thing is several sites say that another legendary shield is obtainable by defeating the phylakes or whatever they’re called, but my game says that you get a legendary outfit, not a shield. Either these sites are in error or Ubisoft decided to mix it up and every user is different somehow.

        • Understandable, micro-transactions are not for everyone. Djoser’s Pride is not an exclusive item. I’ve actually had 4 of them, 2 Legendary, 2 Rare, so there are multiple sources for it. I have checked every Blacksmith I’ve encountered so far, and none of them have sold a Legendary. You get a Legendary Shield for defeating the Phylakes themselves. The outfit reward is for completing the quest itself. Track down the Iron Will Phylake and take him out, see if you have any luck there.

          • Dyre Logan

            Actually I only have two Phylakes left. Both 40 level. I don’t know if one is called Iron Will, but I could have sworn I defeated one by that name. I could be mistaken. The Galatian and Iron Bull are level 40 and the third one I have to do is level 38, Half Horn. So I am guessing Iron Bull is the one I have to defeat. I’ll defeat all of them in due time. but even level 38 is a little too high for me at the moment.

          • Sorry, that’s right. Iron Bull. Level 40. You can take him down at level 36 if you’re patient 😀

          • Dyre Logan

            I’m level 33. I think I will wait until I am 39 or 40 because I had a little trouble with taking down the level 35 one at level 32. He was shooting arrows at me like a Gatling gun! I had to retreat, heal, and return to finish him off. I usually just joust them with my horse back and forth. Pretty simple, these guys, so far. But I am no match for the level 40 guys. And I am certainly not ready for the elephants. Have no idea how I’m going to do that with capping at level 40.

        • Kio Kurashi

          Did you have the skill to get higher rarity items from vendors?

          • Dyre Logan

            Yes I got that skill ages ago but unfortunately all they offer is rare stuff not legendary stuff. I’m now level 36 and I have yet to find a legendary shield. A friend of mine is a much lower level and hasn’t played much and he’s already found two legendary shields! I’m thinking the game hates me. Lol

    • Alternatively, you can purchase a Legendary Shield for 250 Helix Credits. I believe you get some for free at the start. I don’t recall if it was 200 or 250

      • Michael Krebs

        you get 200 helix in game and addidional 500 from the deluxe pack

    • Michael Krebs

      i think the quest rewards are random, only quality is guaranteed…

  • Michael Krebs

    i got the Salissa from a Papyrus quest and also from the stranger, also found headache remedy twice but can’T remember where/ how

  • Some boi

    What’s about Ceremonial Staff? It’s also a legendary scepter, it sets enemies on fire and has combo multiplayer…

  • Kevin Say

    weird in my hidden ones shop it doesn’t sell the fatal duet and the serpent axe

    • It’s possible the stock rotates every day. I’ll check again later today and see what items I have available there

      • Kelly McCarthy

        It does indeed rotate. Also, there’s a shield you missed, I just got it today from a box, it’s “Medusa’s Gaze”. Great guide so far though!

  • Akura32

    I did all Papyrus an didn’t git Neith Bow

  • Joshua Dinwiddie

    Did what you said to get the Reinforced Shield. Instead it gave me the Viper’s Tooth sickle sword.
