Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has a ton of great customization items like gear, weapons and even skins for your mount, Phobos. As you explore the world of Ancient Greece, you’ll have several opportunities to get your hands on new items, like skins for your mount, such as unlocking the Abraxas horse skin in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. In this article we’ll focus on how to get the fire horse skin, Abraxas in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Getting this Abraxas horse skin in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey won’t be an easy task, so make sure you come prepared.

How to Unlock the Abraxas Skin

Players can unlock the Abraxas Legendary mount skin by finding and defeating Exekias the Legend. This very powerful cultist is a level 50 mercenary, as well as the leader of the Heroes of the Cult group that you must hunt down as an optional side quest in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The Heroes of the Cult are very similar to the Eyes of Kosmos, which you can also hunt down to obtain special armor and gear.

In order to take down Exekias the Legend, you’re going to need to first reach the top of the Tier 2 mercenary rank, which can be accomplished by progressing through the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey story, as well as by taking down the various other mercenaries that you can face off against in the world. There are a ton of these guys spread around Ancient Greece, so you shouldn’t have too hard of a time coming across them.

Exekias the Legend is a level 50 mercenary—as we mentioned above—and commands a very dangerous and powerful bear companion that you will need to deal with in your fight. We’d suggest reaching at least level 45 before you try to take on Exekias. To find him, you’ll need to track him using the mercenary tab in your menu. This is where you can see the various mercenaries that you can face off against, as well as easily track them so that you can find them throughout the world.

Once you defeat Exekias, you’ll unlock the Abraxas mount skin for Phobos, your trusty mount. Go ahead and equip the skin to show off your strength, and then head back over to our Assassin’s Creed Odyssey guide for more helpful guides and strategy content like our guide on how to get more Obsidian Glass, a special item you’ll need to upgrade your gear.
