Immortals Fenyx Rising - Burp of the Wild


Recommended Posts

I didn't clock that either, I haven't used parry for literally the entire game. I'm specced out so I get big boosts when I'm at full health and when I execute a perfect dodge.

Medusa

Fight is pure, unadulterated dog shit. The only real low point so far.

I smashed the shit out of her but I was quite op at that point. And one of the gods vaults has a medusa boss as well.  Which was good practice. You can parry the blue attack she does as well.

Yeah there’s a really generous window on the parry so you can just spam it when she does the repeated blue attack and if you have powered up the potion to increase reflected damage it takes off about half of her life bar. Then reflect the green one and wack her with the hammer whilst she’s frozen.

 

IIRC in her last form in the God Vault she turns red when doing the blue attack so you can’t party those but the green one is still fine.

 

Parry seems to often be the key to the bosses that like to stay a long way away from you

I finished this earlier, and the ending sequence really highlights how odd the storytelling is in general. Tonally, it’s all over the place. Quite simple and cheesy, but then has a tendency to be quite dark in places and some very out of place feeling swearing from time to time. It feels quite clumsy in that way that a lot of Ubisoft games often do, though the Assassin’s Creed franchise hasn’t felt like that for some time, so it’s odd to see the Odyssey team produce this.

 

Anyway, story aside, I really enjoyed it. Have clocked just shy of 36 hours and I probably won’t bother going back to it, but I could probably sink another 20 into it if I could be bothered to do all the extra stuff. There’s loads I’ve not touched.

 

I’d like to see them attempt a more ambitious sequel.

About 24 hours into this now and have focussed on becoming a wrecking ball.
 

I’ve put all my upgrades into the axe so that it’s at its max and I’m wearing the lion mane which gives me 160%+ damage on first hit. I haven’t maxed my strength potions yet but it’s up a couple of times.

 

The running attack with the axe has a super high damage and couple that with fact that it’s max, the 160% bonus and the power upgrade and my first attack does around 4200 points of damage.

 

This one shots all small enemies, most medium enemies and leaves heavies with a massive dent in their health.

 

TBH I’m at the point now where I’m doing is the run attack like 80% of a fight. Each subsequent hit does about 2000 points of damage, which is way more than attacking normalIy.
 


One tip I have is to get the Phosphar clone Godly Power ASAP. This can save loads of time in vaults and puzzles in the world with it doubling as a light weight for switches.

 

I’ve enjoyed it overall but like all open world games it’s got the same mini games dotted everywhere, which after you’ve done a number of times, they start to wear thin.

The clone power I got early. I wish I'd got the one the lets you pick up large metal cubes sooner.

 

I've got a feeling I'm going to burn out on this. I've not finished Athena's questline yet and I'm 27 hours deep. The plus side of this is that my sword and axe are nearly maxed out, so I just wreck shit.

The Ares' Hammer upgrade, or whatever it's called trivialised the combat in the game for me. When it's fully upgraded, it does a huge amount of damage and I had the attack potion upgraded to do 200% damage. That plus a bonus that generates stamina from sword hits just let me do a few whacks and then hit 'em with the hammer.

Im at this bit currently and completely forgot about parry! I have been able to defeat her fairly easy though by just whacking her with my sword and using Phosphor fire bomb attacks. Also she is invulnerable when her skin turns white (which she does every so often).

Each area has seen me doing less tasks. I think you can max out a weapon, get 2 stamina bars and 8 or so healthbars within the first 2 areas which pretty much allows you to then mainline the rest. Perfectly happy with that as well. I’ve never been a 100hour completionist.

I've basically just been going from story mission to story mission since the start of the third area and I'm still not sure if I'm going to be able to finish it. I have genuinely enjoyed it for the most part but even by open world game standards I feel like I really saw pretty much everything the game has to offer within the first five hours or so apart from the bosses and God vaults. Settlements don't really make sense in the context of what's going on but they're something that I've missed to help break things up.

I almost did the same - took me 15 hours plus to complete the first boss as I was spending a lot of time hoovering up side quests and challenges. Good news is that if you put your mind to it and focus on the story it’s actually quite tight. I batted through the second half of the story in less than ten hours and it was great fun.

The Athena vault was another enjoyable set of puzzles involving moving large boxes to get to high places. The Medusa boss got easier everytime I fought her as well.

 

Onto War's den next but I am definitely beginning to filter out the collectibles aspect of this. Its just too dense and almost pointless feeling, perhaps with exception of collecting Ambrosia and lightning for health and Stamina.

 

Has anyone found any additional wings? I have collected multiple armour, weapons, even skins for the bird, but no wings which is odd.

Killing lieutenants or the optional “after the vault” quests, I think.

 

This would be an awful game for completionists, but playing the main story missions mixes things up enough. Just don’t force yourself to play every puzzle.

Just finished this and enjoyed it, but did drag a smidge toward the end. Could have done with no puzzles in Typhon's lair though they were easy.  Was also really op to take on the last boss. Caused me no trouble at all. 

 

Nearly close to 1000 gamerscore as well just gotta mop up chests to get the Hercules tasks done and fully upgrade health and weapons and armour. 

 

Will save that for when my Series X arrives.

Yay they’ve finally fixed the audio bug on PC (which wasn’t present in the launch build lol).

 

Still adoring this game and north of 70 hours gradually mopping up everything...

Is anyone having trouble accessing the new DLC on PS5?

 

It told me it would be available in the home meny but I can't find it.

 

I downloaded the DLC from the store but can't seem to access it.

 

Any ideas?

Not played the DLC myself, but have seen numerous people have issues finding how to load it up.

This Reddit thread with some comments on how others resolved theirs issues with the DLC might help.

I think I may have a clue. The Season Pass downloads to my external SSD and says it is for the PS4, not the PS5.

 

So it looks like it is downloading the wrong season pass so the game on PS5 doesn't think you have the pass.

 

I can't believe they can screw this stuff up.

I've just got to Kings Peak and there's just way too much game in this, like most Ubisoft games. They think that if they throw enough content in there it makes it good. The games fine, I've had a lot of fun with it but fuck me. Reign it in.

I ended up selling it halfway through the third area I visited and don't regret it. I mostly enjoyed the time I spent with it but 30 hours was more than enough. The game had shown me all it needed to several times over by that point. Wouldn't have minded just playing through the last couple of main dungeons but I didn't have the will for everything in between.

 

Wouldn't be mad at the prospect of a sequel with a lot more variety in the open world but given how quickly it tanked in price I can't see it.

I’m at the same point in the game with literally half the amount of hours on the clock.
The majority of the open world content is there to power up your character and you absolutely don’t need to do nearly all of it, you’re very powerful very quickly. 
The main missions are the meat of the game and can be done pretty swift. You’re not really meant to be putting that amount of time into it, unless you want to.

I wanted to. I had something like 3 chests left on  the main map. It just suddenly hit a wall when I realised that Kings Peak was about the same size as the other areas but with mandatory puzzles. Like I say I enjoyed it, it's just too much game albeit one where I couldn't stop grinding the icons on the map.

I finished it in about 32 hours but still felt this way about it. I think someone said they spent 70 hours with it, which sounds like a nightmare to me.

That was me. 82 hours in the end and I didn’t actually manage to clear everything in the last 2 areas having rinsed the first 4 (the game takes an odd design turn in Kings Peak which makes getting to the side stuff annoying and then railroads you into the finale).


I did do the vast majority of it though (cleared the 12 labours, did all the vaults and myth challenges).

 

I loved it, I’ll freely admit I have a tendency to play open world stuff in a slightly obsessive gotta clear it all, but almost all the side content had some clever little twist to make it worth clearing even if the rewards became faintly pointless by 2/3rds of the way through.

 

Its a very me game though and once I got to the conclusion I decided I couldn’t be bothered to go back for the last few chests and ambrosia, so I do get people finding it slightly wearing.

 

Debating to jump back in for the DLC or having a longer break, we’ll see how long it takes me to get bored of Destiny 2 having finished the Beyond Light campaign...

YES. Jesus, it's so different to the rest of the map.

 

From what I've seen of the first DLC it's just vault trials and shit like that.
