Journey’s End is one of the side quests in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It’s the last step of the quest chain you start by talking to Phidias in Ellis. In order to complete it, you’ll have to solve a puzzle using the scytale you get from Phidias and open the door to the inner sanctum of the Ancient Stronghold. If you have trouble decyphering the hints, keep reading our AC Odyssey Journey’s End quest guide, and we’ll show you the scytale puzzle solution.
How to open puzzle door using Scytale?
Once you find Phidias’ body, you’ll also find the scytale – a piece of papyrus with some symbols drawn on it. Go to the Ancient Stronghold – it’s on the island of Lemnos, and you’ll have a map marker to lead you there. Once you reach the entrance to the inner sanctum, look at the walls of the antechamber. You’ll notice rows of pressure plates on both sides, with images drawn on them. Four of the images from the plates correspond to the ones on the scytale.
You’ll need to press them in this order: first on the left (two-headed spear), fourth on the left (head with animal skin), third on the right (beast head), second on the right (bird with spread wings). After you’ve pressed them in the correct order, you’ll get a quest objective update, and the doors will unlock. Open them to get to the chest with a legendary weapon inside.
Atlantean Blade legendary weapon
Once you open the chest, you’ll get the Atlantean Blade legendary weapon. It’s dagger that gives you +15% hunter damage, +25% critical hit damage and +30% armor penetration. It’s a pretty good piece of weaponry, and you can engrave it with one more perk, to make it better suit your needs.
