If you look at the image at the top of this article you will notice that my Alexios is currently sitting at Tier 6. During that time I had killed at least 5 other Mercenaries that attacked me at sea, but I never advanced in rank.

However, if you check the screenshot above, you will see that I advanced to Tier 5. While it can be difficult to increase your mercenary tier or level in AC Odyssey, it’s actually a simple process. It’s not about how many you kill or where you kill them, it’s about who you kill.

If you have identified the mercenary directly ahead of you in the ranks, and you take them down, you will instantly take their spot. For my Tier 6 I discovered that the lowest ranking Tier 5 mercenary was at the Arena. So I went to the arena, challenged him to a duel and burned him to a crisp, with a flame grilled finish. As he was the next direct mercenary in the rankings, I immediately took his place and rose to Tier 5.

So that’s how it works. Target mercenaries directly ahead of you, instead of just fighting the random ones that show up, and you’ll level up in no time. Have any questions about our guide on How To Increase Mercenary Tier Level In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey? Post a comment below.
