This section includes all the information on how to heal your character in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. Here, you will learn how to heal your character during battles and what to do when he or she is on the brink of death.
When exploring the in-game world or when sneaking, your health bar might regenerate on its own. You just have to wait until the regeneration begins that will restore your character's full health.
Unfortunately, your health bar does not regenerate on its own in combat. This might easily cause a situation when your character is left with little health points and can be easily killed.
Use active ability
The first method of regenerating health is the easiest one but it is also the least efficient. Your character can receive a little bit of health back every time when you use an active ability. These skills require adrenaline (at least one full segment on the yellow bar). You won't regenerate your entire health but this method allows you to stay longer on a battlefield. Using adrenaline on a regular basis is very important. You can't gather adrenaline when your bar is full. This means that you will lose a chance to partially heal yourself.
The second solution to the lack of health regeneration in combat is available right from the start and involves running away. You have to disappear from the enemy's sight and then hide in the bushes, on a roof or other place providing shelter. Then, you simply have to wait until your health bar begins to regenerate.
Note - If you want to use this method when e.g. attacking a fort, try not to leave the combat location entirely - this will increase the chance that upon approaching the area, there will be no new enemies, while those you were able to injure did not recover full health.
Second Wind active ability
The third solution to health regeneration problem is to acquire the Second Wind active ability. It becomes available after you reach experience level 5. The basic version of this ability allows you to immediately restore 1 of the health bar (unlocking next levels increases the percentage value of regeneration). Assign this ability to one of the four combat buttons making it always available.
There are two difficulties related to using the Second Wind ability:
- You can use this ability only if at least one piece of the adrenaline bar is full.
- You cannot use an ability several times in a row. You have to wait after it regenerates. If the regained health is not enough to provide your character with safety, dodge enemy attacks several times to wait until you will be able to use the ability again.
