In a recent pre-launch stream, Ubisoft showed us a glimpse of the Trials of the Gods Anubis gear. This includes a cool-looking outfit, sword, shield, scepter and warrior bow. These will be your rewards for beating the Trials of the Gods events – all 4 bosses.
UPDATE: November 7th, 2017.
Anubis outfit & weapons
So, what does the Anubis-inspired set exactly entail? Well, as you can see in the image above, the outfit itself looks pretty dope. It’s completely black, with flames spurting form it, and comes with a terrifying mask of the Egyptian god of the afterlife. The Anubis set apparently also includes four different weapons on top of the awesome-looking outfit itself. You’ll get a sword, a warrior bow, a shield, and a scepter / quarter staff. During the stream, only the shield was shown in more detail. It’s called the Tomb Protector, and it will offer both Melee and Ranged resistance, and “Sleep on Block”.
How exactly will you be able to unlock these awesome weapons and outfit? You’ll have to play the Trials of the Gods live activity once it comes out. In these events, you’ll have to battle the gods of Egypt themselves. Only max-level players need apply, as the Trials of the Gods will be extremely difficult. The first one should go live some fifteen days after launch, on Tuesday, November 7th. You’ll have one week to battle and defeat a boss, and then a new one will come along at some point. You’ll likely have to beat each of them in order to unlock the whole set of weapons and the outfit.
