Assassin’s Creed brand in general or the latest version is Odyssey are games that try to follow the flow of history from which to make extraordinary stories.
If asked what people were obsessed with Assassin’s Creed for, the movement fans would probably recite Ezio Auditore’s. Nothing is true. Everything is permitted “in the second part. But the fact is that not everyone loves the brand just because of its seemingly illusionary liberal thought. Many gamers are very intuitive when making this game because of their love for stealth action. Since the Odyssey version, the newly joined fan group feels the adventure action in ancient Greece is quite impressive. For me, Ubisoft’s architecture, culture, and customs massage of older people is the most exciting point of the game. In addition to the elements above, the Assassin’s Creed game series also brings unique and unique weapons of cultures throughout the ages from ancient times to specific periods of modern times.
Let’s look at the weapons that are considered classics and most impressive in each historical period in which the game is set and their cultural role in world history. And to begin the journey to learn about the famous weapons of ancient times, let the swords, which the Chinese call themselves the king of all weapons, make this arduous opening task!
Nikolaos’s Sword is a sword belonging to Nikolaos, a general of Spartan who lived in the 5th century BC. Initially, everyone thought this young man was also very cattle when crabs Myrrine, daughter of the legendary King Leonidas. But after investigating the plot, Nikolaos is not the same buffalo because, by genealogy, Nikolaos is Alexios’s biological father while only his stepfather Kassandra. Although not a biological father, basically Nikolaos never discriminated against when raising two children. However, the disaster happened to this small family on the fateful day when the Oracle prophesied Sparta’s destruction at the hands of Myrrine’s children (later exposed as a lie). After the death orchestrated by the Cult of Kosmos for Alexios, Kassandra was wrongly accused and sentenced to death. To save his adopted daughter, Nikolaos reluctantly stood out and accepted the execution’s responsibility, but he brought only Kassandra’s exile in reality. Later, when she became a legendary mercenary, she returned to question her father and forgave (or kill the player’s choice) and received the Nikolaos’s Sword in 431 BC on one end hills in Megaris.
Sika is the short sword invented by the Thracians, Dacians, and Illyrian cultures. This type of weapon was widely used in ancient Rome in Halstatt culture. Initially, the sword was as large as a sword. Still, some of the patterns found today in Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Romania show the more straight-edged versions of the sika. According to the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey storyline, when the Peloponnesian War broke out, a legendary sika bar called Prometheus’s Sika was kept by the mercenary named Spark. It was not surprising that the youth who liked collecting weapons Kassandra decided to assassinate this soldier to usurp the legendary Prometheus’s Sika.
Xiphos is a short-edged sword that appeared in ancient Greece, used as a secondary weapon in the Greek army, besides the shield and spear. Xiphos’ blades are leaf-shaped, compact, allowing users to grip and cut conveniently. The legendary Greek hero Achilles is described as using Xiphos in the battle of Troy through the Iliad. And in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, there is a xiphos called Gorgoneion inspired by the three Gorgon sisters in myth. The sword is preserved by member The Hydra, a sage of the Gods of Aegean Sea, the dominant branch of the Cult of Kosmos’ Mediterranean waters. In the end, Gorgoneion Xiphos was confiscated by the monster Kassandra as a spoil after defeating The Hydra.
Xiphos of Dionysos
Dionysos in Greek mythology is the god of wine, the son of the three-person Zeus with a mortal princess named Semele. Because of avoiding jealousy of his old wife Héra, Zeus brought the baby to the island where he was raised in the past for nymph fairies. The boy was named Dionysus and lived happily among the fairies until he became a healthy boy. This legend has nothing to do with the sword named Xiphos of Dionysos in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey because it belongs to King Pausanias in Sparta. After discovering that he was a sage of the Peloponnesian League, another branch of the Cult of Kosmos. Kassandra assassinated the king and took the Xiphos of Dionysos with her own hands.
Xiphos of Peleus
In myths, Peleus’s entire life was nothing outstanding when he specialized in painting and was banished or fled. The most remarkable achievement of this guy is to marry the beautiful goddess Thetis. If you look closely, you can know that Thetis was originally Zeus’s recruiting bride, not Hera. Still, the prophecy says that whoever married Thetis will have a healthier baby than his father. Zeus was an anti-professional creator because he used to kill Kronos and immediately killed Thetis for Peleus. As expected, Peleus and Thetis’ children were more potent than their fathers, not just average, but super healthy because they were heroes with Achille’s heel. In Odyssey, Ubisoft facts that after Peleus returned to heaven, the sword he used to fight for his entire life was kept in a chest at Artemisia fortress, on the Greek island of Kos. Of course, a mercenary who likes to collect weapons like Kassandra cannot ignore this item when he hears about it.
Kopis was a short-edged sword quite famous in ancient Greece. The name Kopis (κοπίς) in old Greek means “to be cut”. Designed for one-handed gripping, Kopis is a single-edged sword (also known as a sword with a sword form). The edge of the blade is large and large. The back is curved and concave about the hilt with the curved blade. Kopis’ hilt is quite large with a pin and handles to help the grip on the grip. This design made Kopis quite convenient to slash like an ax while retaining the size of a blade as long as a sword so that it could create slashes. In AC Odyssey, Kopis of Pandora is a legendary sword given to Pandora by Greek gods, a woman created by Hephaistos under Zeus’s direction. During the Peloponnesian War, the sword was owned by Daphne, the leader of the Daughters of Artemis. In return for those who found the fierce lion Nemean’s skin, she used the legendary sword as a reward.
Sword of Damokles
This is so famous that the phrase “the sword of Damocles” is used as an idiom widely used in Europe and America as a metaphor to describe a manifest danger. One of the famous cases in which this idiom was used was in 1961 when President John F. Kennedy addressed the United Nations during the Cold War. In which he said, “Every man, woman, and children living under a Damocles sword of nuclear weapons, hanging on top of the most fragile threads, can be cut off at any time due to accident, miscalculation, or folly. ” In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the origin of the sword Damokles is more illusory because it is the work of Hephaistos, an Isu scientist. Legend has it that the blade will bring strength and wisdom to lead heroes to anyone who possesses it. In Odyssey, the Cult of Kosmos gave this sword to Deimos (Alexios) for use.
Harpe of Perseus
Perseus was the son of Zeus and princess Danae, the only daughter of King Acrisius of Argos. This young man was also the first hero in Greek mythology to defeat many ancient monsters created by Olympus’s 12 gods. Perseus killed Medusa Gorgon, rescuing Andromeda from the sea monster Cetus. Meanwhile, the harpe is a form of a sword with a head attached to a small crescent (which is quite similar to the wounded sentence later). Much talked about in Greek and Roman mythology, harpe is more about art culture than weapons in actual war. The harpe sword mentioned earlier in myth is the weapon that Kronos used to castrate his father’s boy and topple him. The female warrior Kassandra restored the legendary sword Harpe of Perseus after defeating the Writhing Dread monster.
The list of legendary swords also includes Chrysaor and Drinker of Light. Still, it seems unreasonable when Chrysaor only has DLC Pegasos Mythical Pack while Drinker of Light has to deposit money to buy with Helix directly will not introduce them.
