In this guide, we will provide you with the necessary steps to successfully complete this mission.
Step 1: Gather Information
- Begin by gathering more information about Deianeira in the City of Orchomenos or near the Port of Kreusis near Lake Kopais. This will help you in tracking her down. Utilize your eagle companion, Ikaros, to locate her.
Step 2: Locate Deianeira
- Due to Deianeira’s varying locations, it is advisable to play in guided mode. Use Ikaros to spot her and track her movements. She may be found in different areas, so stay vigilant.
Step 3: Prepare for the Battle
- Before engaging in the fight, make sure you are well-equipped and ready for combat. Consider upgrading your gear and abilities, as they play a significant role in determining your success. Experiment with different weapon types to find your preferred attack patterns and reach. Fast hitting weapons like daggers work best when applying effects such as poison and fire. Familiarize yourself with combat strategies, including dodging incoming attacks, using abilities, and parrying to create openings.
Step 4: Engage in Battle
- Once you have located Deianeira, initiate the fight. Be prepared for a tough battle, as she is a formidable opponent. Utilize your combat skills and techniques to overcome her. Dodge incoming attacks, particularly those that cannot be blocked when Deianeira glows red. Use your abilities strategically and parry her attacks to create opportunities for counterattacks.

Successfully completing The Fall of Deianeira mission in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey involves gathering information, locating her, preparing for the battle, engaging in combat, and ultimately defeating Deianeira while confirming the kill.
