  • Let Nikolaos Live - During the Wolf of Sparta quest in Chapter 2, you have the option to kill Nikolaos. However, to get the best ending in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, you’ll have to forgive the man who once tried to kill you, and let him live.
  • Plan to Get Deimos Back - Near the conclusion of Chapter 6 in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, you’ll have to outline your plan of attack to your mother, Myrrine. During this section, you must state that you plan to get Deimos back from the Cult of Kosmos, planning to rescue your sibling above all else.
  • Convince Nikolaos to Aid You - During Chapter 7 of the game, both Nikolaos and Stentor will make a reappearance. It’s paramount that you get Nikolaos to step in between Stentor, and it’s also equally important to keep Stentor alive during this sequence, as he’s technically your adopted brother.
  • Plead with Deimos - In Chapter 9 of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, there’ll be a scene where you have the opportunity to speak to Deimos. During this sequence, you must tell Deimos that they’re being manipulated by the Cult of Kosmos.
  • Pacifism - When you have the option to fight Deimos during Chapter 9 of the game, you must refuse. If you have the option to refuse to fight Deimos, and you’ve followed the other steps in this guide, then you’ll see the “best” ending possible.
