How to Get the Legendary Athenian War Hero Armor in Assassin's Creed Odyssey

To get the legendary Athenian War Hero armor in Assassin's Creed Odyssey you’re unfortunately going to have to go after the Delian League, which is a subsection of the Cult of Kosmos. Each captain of the Delian League that you slay will reward you with a piece of the Athenian War Hero armor set, which we’ll detail further down. If you want a helping hand on tracking down some of these elusive members of the Cult, you’ll want to head over to our Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Cult of Kosmos guide.
