How To Find The Minotaur Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Being one of the biggest bosses fights you will encounter in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey; you won’t find Minotaur just frolicking around and he’s also one of the four mystical beasts in the game. Meaning that you will need to go through a bit just to find him before you can actually duel.
Make sure that you’re above or at least level 35 before taking on the Minotaur, he will be mighty strong and it is recommended that you ready yourself before going into the fight.
To find the Minotaur, you will need to get to the Messara area in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Once there look for a place called Knossos in the Mino’s Legacy region. Here you will need to find the mission titled ‘Myths and Minotaurs’. This is the first indication that you’re on the right path.
Now, to get to the Minotaur you will need to complete a few side missions. You will meet an NPC named Ardos who is looking for his lost father. His father went into the Minotaur but never returned, and only Ardos can guide you where and how to find it.
In your quest screen, you will be able to see all the side quests that you will be required to complete before you can get to the main mission. One requirement is that you will have to meet with the collector, his requirement is that you get him Theseus’ armor.
There are several parts of this armor that you will need to collect, after that you will also need to free Ardos’ caretaker which shouldn’t be that much of a challenge and lastly you will need to talk to a man called Swordfish who has simply just gone mad, you’ll just need to find and kill him,
After all, this is done, Ardos himself will give you the key to enter the Labyrinth, this is the tricky part as you can get lost easily. What you want to do is first find Ardos’ father.
As soon as you enter the Labyrinth, your character will alert you to a glowing string, follow this string and it will take you Ardos’ father. You won’t find him alive but this will make it easier to navigate the next part of the Labyrinth.
From here all you have to do is turn around towards the opposite direction and leap across the gaps between the platform till where the rope ends.
Now from here, all you have to do is follow the path that you’re on and only turn when you see some skulls on sticks. You’ll get some treasure along the way and soon enough you’ll be face to face with the Minotaur himself.
