Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Lokris Fort: How to Find Skylax the Fair Cultist

Reading the clues!

In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, while progressing through the storyline, you will come across a secret organization called the Cult of Kosmos. After a brief cut scene, the players get to see the cultist menu when they pause the game. Once you are there, you will notice that most of these cultists’ identities remain undiscovered. You will need to find the clues in order to unveil them, then track and eliminate them once and for all.

However, there is one cultist in the Peloponnesian League branch who has the most bizarre clues in the entire game. To solve this mystery and put an end to this cultist, we have come up with our Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Lokris Fort guide.

Key Takeaways
  • To defeat Skylax the Fair in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, locate the Xerxes Military Fort, mislabeled as Lokris Fort on the map.
  • Once at the Xerxes Military Fort, eliminate Skylax the Fair.

If you hover over the clue section of this cultist, you will notice that it points you in the direction of a place called “Lokris Fort”. The clue reads: “The Nation Treasure in Lokris Fort contains a Clue about the Cultists”. Like you, we, too, wandered the map for a while in search of Lokris Fort. Sadly, this named fort does not exist. It is the clue that makes you think that there is actually a Lokris Fort in the game. We are here to tell you that you need to look for a fort called “Xerxes Military fort,” which turns out to be in the Lokris region of the map. This is the place where you will get your clue to reveal the masked cultist.

Finding Xerxes Military Fort

Now that the confusion is cleared regarding the odyssey Lokris Fort clue, the next step in unmasking the cultist is to find the Xerxes Military fort. As mentioned earlier, this place can be found in the Lokris region. Suppose you have already discovered this part of the game world. In that case, you may have an idea where to look or simply go to the map section of the game and find Lokris in your discovered areas. However, if you never set foot in this place, you will need to reach there first to find Xerxes Military fort. Lokris lies in the Northern part of the game world in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It is at the East of Phokis and in the North of Boeotia. We have attached an image here for your reference.

Reaching Xerxes Military Fort

You are halfway through your Lokris Fort questline if you spot the region on your map. Reaching there is entirely up to you. You have the option of taking a stroll from wherever you are to there while killing animals and enemies in the process. You can do the same a little faster if you are riding on the horse, or just fast travel to Lokris as we did.

Once you are at Lokris, go to the map section and find Red Lake Bay. It’s not hard to miss as a sizable chunk of land in Lokris appears covered by red waters. The Xerxes Military fort is located in the east of the Red Lake. We have attached an image here for your reference.

Infiltrating Xerxes Military Fort For The Clue

Depending on what character level you are rocking and how much better equipped you are, infiltrating this crowded fort will not be a piece of cake, let alone finding the chest containing a clue about the cultist. As always, whenever you need intelligence on enemy hideouts and collectibles, you seek Ikaros’s help; the same applies here.

Your bird friend can spot the chest lying somewhere in the Xerxes Military fort. You must bear in mind that depending on your game’s progression, and if Athens is in control of the region, the chest will be blue/purple-ish; if Sparta helms Lokris, the chest will be red.

Now that Ikaros spotted the chest for you and you know it is within reach, the only challenge lies in reaching and opening it. Charge in like a bull if you have legendary weapons and armor on you. The fort will get bloody, and there will be a blood bath, but your chances of emerging victorious will be high. However, slip into the grass and stick to rooftops if you think you are under-leveled to fight head-on with a bustling fort filled with foes of all sizes. Whatever you do, just reach the chest and pillage it to uncover the cultist’s identity and reach the final stage of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Lokris Fort Guide.
