In Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey you can change the skin of your horse. There are some very particular ones and among these stand out those that "transform" the animal in a Unicorn, in Pegasus and Abraxas. Let's see how to unlock all these skins for the horse in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey .
The epic Unicorn skin in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey is one of many aesthetic upgrades that you can unlock for the horse. Many players are wondering where to find a unicorn in the world of Odyssey, but it is actually a skin to apply to the horse. If you still haven't figured out where to find it, our guide to unlocking the Unicorn skin in AC Odyssey will help you solve the problem.
Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey How to get the Unicorn skin
To get the epic Unicorn skin that will turn your horse into the legendary fairy animal, all you need to do is keep buying skins for the horse from the blacksmith until they start selling the unicorn skin. Yeah, really; we're not kidding. That's all there is to it.
Also, what's important to know, you don't even have to buy all the skins from the same blacksmith; just buy large quantities wherever they sell them. Select a blacksmith on the map, go there and buy all the skins, repeat the process from the same blacksmith or others.
Every time you buy a skin from a blacksmith, everyone else seems to stop selling it and their inventory is updated to the next piece. So, you'll have to buy all the skins you see available, even the rare ones. Each rare skin will cost about 2000 Drachmas, while the Unicorn skin will cost you 6400 Drachmas. So, plan your budget, because you will need a lot of money to buy the Unicorn skin.
Below you can see what the skin looks like in a blacksmith's inventory:
There is, however, also a Black version of the Unicorn skin. Here's how to get it:
Black Unicorn Skin - For 500 Helix Credits, you can collect the Black Unicorn Skin for Phobos through the in-game Helix shop. This skin features a black unicorn with a silver horn and indoor clogs from the Helix in-game store for 750 Helix Credits. If you want your character to have legendary armour to match the Pegasus skin, you can also buy the Pegasos Pack, which contains the Pegasus saddle, a set of Pegasus-inspired accessories and a sword.
Another way to get the legendary Pegasus equipment is to buy items from Oikos of the Olympians if you've accumulated enough Oricalco, but that's not the most reliable method, as Oikos's stock clears to zero every day, and there's no way to tell if it's going to sell the legendary equipment you're looking for.
How to unlock the Abraxas skin
Players can unlock the legendary Abraxas skin for their horse by finding and defeating Exekias the Legend. This very powerful cultist is a level 50 mercenary, as well as the leader of the Cult Heroes group that you must search for in an optional side mission in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. The Cult Heroes are very similar to the Eyes of the Cosmos, which you can also search for special armor and accessories.
To defeat Exekias the Legend, you must first reach the top of the mercenary rank of level 2, which can be achieved by progressing through the history of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, as well as eliminating the various other mercenaries you can face in the world. There are a lot of these guys scattered around ancient Greece, so you shouldn't have too much trouble running into them.
Exekias the Legend is a level 50 mercenary - as we mentioned above - and commands a very dangerous and powerful bear companion that you'll face during the fight. We recommend that you reach at least level 45 before you try to take on Exekias. To find him, you will need to track him down using the mercenary tab in your menu. This is where you can see the various mercenaries you can confront, as well as easily track them so that you can find them all over the world.
Once you defeat Exekias, you will unlock Abraxas' skin for Phobos, your faithful steed. Equip the skin to show your strength. Abraxas is, according to Greek mythology, one of the horses of Aeolus, the god of the winds, who moved on a horse-drawn cart. He looks like a horse with a flaming mane.
