Orichalcum daily quests are special tasks in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. They appear on notice boards, and completing them will give you the rare ore needed to buy gear from Oikos, the legendary merchant. They rorate on a daily basis, but there’s a nasty bug that’s affecting a lot of people, which blocks them from even starting these quests. If you’re affected by the AC Odyssey orichalcum daily quest bug, know that you’re not alone.
Ore daily quest glitch
The bug most often manifests itself by showing the word “expired” below the quest, which stops you from starting it. When all the available quests are marked as expired, it might just ruin your day. The stuff Oikos sells isn’t cheap, and you’ll need quite a stockpile if you’re planning to purchase anything from him. These quests are a great way to earn orichalcum ore – the amount you get for each depends on the difficulty, and it ranges from “nice” to “princely”.
Sadly, there’s no way around this issue. You’ll just have to wait for Ubisoft to fix it. In the meantime, you can earn ore by collecting the fragments scattered around the map. There’s quite a few of them, and you can find them all in our orichalcum ore locations map guide.
You could also pass up the opportunity to buy stuff from Oikos. Sure, some of it is great, but there’s so much legendary gear in the wild, golden-quality weapons and armor you don’t have to pay for. There’s a bunch of legendary armor sets, and even more weapons. You can get them from cultists, by completing various quests and finishing location objectives around the world. One of the best we’ve found is the Atlantean Blade, which a is a dagger you can get by completing a simple side quest chain.
