Assassins Creed Origins Phylakes Guide – How To Kill

Assassins Creed Origins Phylaks Guide - How To Kill
Phylakes are a deadly Bounty Hunter enemy that starts to track you down. This Assassins Creed Origins Phylakes Guide will tell you how to kill them, what they give you and what different Phylakes you can encounter on your travels.

You won’t encounter Phylakes until you reach a certain part of the main story. Once you have unlocked Hidden Blades you will be introduced to the Phylakes via an in-game prompt. It warns you that they are deadly powerful Bounty Hunter enemies that you should avoid. While this is very true, it is possible to take them down with the right equipment, a bit of patience and some skill in combat.

Assassins Creed Origins Phylakes Guide – How To Kill

Phylakes are among the most difficult enemies you will encounter at the start of the game. The first Phylakes you meet will be around level 20 and utilize a number of heavy attacks. While seemingly difficult at first, there is a very easy technique to defeat him. Unlock the Fire Bombs skill and ensure you have full arrows. If you follow the Phylake long enough, he will eventually dismount. When on foot, simply get close and hit him with some Fire Bombs. As he begins to burn and panic, throw a few melee strikes from your mount. Don’t waste too many Fire Bombs at the same time as the burning effect does not stack.

Throw 1 or 2, follow up with arrows, repeat. It’s a pretty simply fight if you can remain mounted.
