Assassin's Creed Origins Bayek's Promise Guide
The Assassin's Creed Origins Bayek's Promise quest will begin near the conclusion of the prologue section in Siwa, when Bayek journies to the initial Stone Circle just outside of the town, to reflect on the memories of his son. Once you've activated the Stone Circle, you'll be tasked with lining up the pattern presented to you with the star constellations in the night sky, in order to form an Egyptian god.
This is how every Assassin's Creed Origins Stone Circle works, no matter the location in which you find it. The Bayek's Promise quest tasks you with finding a total of twelve Stone Circles scattered around Egypt, and we'll outline the location of all of them just below.
Assassin's Creed Origins Stone Circle Locations
The first Stone Circle location that you'll likely come across is the Serqet Stone Circle, located just a short ride west of the town in Lake Mareotis. The Serqet Stone Circle can be found in the middle of the desert, out in the vast sand dunes.
The next Stone Circle that you'll be nearest to in Assassin's Creed Origins in the Divine Lion Stone Circle, which you can see the location of just below, found south east of the main town in Lake Mareotis, and effectively in the middle of nowhere.
Next up will likely be the Hathor Stone Circle, which can be located directly north east of the town of Letopolis, which itself is located in the southern sector of Sapi-Res Nome. From the town, head straight north east, and the Hathor Stone Circle is directly south east of the synchronization point.
The Pisces Stone Circle can be found in the southern sector of the Saqqara Nome region of Assassin's Creed Origins, and south east of the town of Karanis. Alternatively, you can reach the Pisces Stone Circle by simply travelling north east from the town of Philadelphia, provided you've already discovered it.
Again, going from the town of Karanis, but this time heading into the Isolated Desert region to the north, the Apis Stone Circle can be found in the latter region. Simply travel north and slighlty west from the town of Karanis, and the Apis Stone Circle can be found in the bottom right corner of the Isolated Desert region.
The Goat Fish Stone Circle is again located in the Isolated Desert, but can be found in the top left corner of the region. You can either reach it by travelling directly east from Siwa, or by heading on a long journey north west from the town of Soknopaiou Nesos.
The next Stone Circle is the Taweret Stone Circle, which is again slightly difficult to reach. It's located along the bank of the main lake in the Faiyum region, and you can reach the Taweret Stone Circle by either heading south west from Soknopaiou Nesos, or north west from Euhemeria.
For the Great Twins Stone Circle in the White Desert Oasis region of Assassin's Creed Origins, you'll again have to travel from the town of Euhemeria. Simply head west and slightly south from the town toward the river, and you can find the Great Twins Stone Circle on the west bank of the small lake.
The Horus Stone Circle can be found in the northern section of the Uab Nome region, itself one of the more southern regions in Assassin's Creed Origins. To reach the Horus Stone Circle, all you need to do is either head south east from Krokodilopolis, or head south west from the town of Hermopolis.
To reach the Scales Stone Circle, all you need to do is head to the aforementioned town of Hermopolis, and head south and slightly west from there. You can find the Scales Stone Circle slightly inland from the main river, but still just next to a small body of water.
You can find the Horus Stone Circle right in the middle of nowhere, in the Qattara Depression region of Assassin's Creed Origins. To reach the Horus Stone Circle, you can either travel a fair distance north east from Siwa, or you can go to the Temple of Sekhmet in Yamu, located in Lake Mareotis, and travel south west from there.
This brings to a close the Assassin's Creed Origins Stone Circles locations part of the Bayek's Promise quest, but check out the rest of our guide just below for all the info you need to know on the Legendary Isu armor.
Assassin's Creed Origins How to Get the Isu Armor
That might be it for the Stone Circle locations in Assassin's Creed Origins, but you aren't quite done with the Bayek's Promise quest just yet, as you'll need to know how to get the Isu armor. After you've returned to the initial Stone Circle located just outside of Siwa, head to the Great Sphinx just west of the main village in Giza, and follow the video guide just below to get to a secret room within the iconic location.
Once you've reached the mysterious mechanism shown just above, it'll ask you for a total of 50 Silica in order to be activated. This is no small feat, as you can only find Silica in Assassin's Creed Origins by scavenging many of the Tombs located throughout Egypt. You'll have to comb through each one, using your Animus Scan ability to search each Tomb for collectibles, and saving up all your Silica to activate the device buried in the Great Sphinx.
But what happens once you've activated the device? You'll fortunately be granted the Assassin's Creed Origins Isu armor for your efforts, which is undoubtedly the rarest - and possibly the best looking - armor outfit in Assassin's Creed Origins. We've posted a few screens of the Isu armor outfit just below, which were captured through the preview event for the game, hence the quality of the photos.
We should note that the Assassin's Creed Origins Isu armor is a purely cosmetic bonus, as armor doesn't actually provide any statistical boost in the game. It's definitely the rarest armor item though, and quite possibly the best looking too.
That's it for the Bayek's Promise quest in Assassin's Creed Origins, and you've now got all the information you need in order to track down all 12 Stone Circles in the game, as well as obtaining the Legendary Isu armor for your hard work.
