We go through all the ways your eagle Senu can help you in Assassin’s Creed Origins. From scouting, to hunting to outright combat, this is a massive map jam-packed with icons and it helps to have a birds-eye view of all of it.
As we’ve talked about before, the quest structure in Origins is designed to take you criss-crossing paths across the map. This makes you encounter side quests and hunting opportunities. The strategy here is to naturally give you enough materials to upgrade your gear, and give you ample opportunity to sample the fringe quests. Of course, the best laid plans will only make Ra laugh.
Eventually, you’ll have to start seeking out exactly the kinds of resources you need to upgrade your gear. As your gear gets better and better, this might involve rarer components. That’s where Senu can help. Don’t ride around on your camel just hoping to stumble on rare metals like a chump.
It’s worth noting that there are options to upgrade Senu in your talent tree. This allows abilities like harassing guards mid-fight. Assassin’s Creed Origins‘ combat is tougher now, so having an enemy occupied with a flying, feathery foe could really help when you’re outnumbered.
Not to mention… It’s just cool, right?
