Assassin’s Creed: Origins is a gigantic game. There are so many missions and side quests that it’s quite easy to get lost. One of those missions is the Bayek’s Promise quest. It’s available at pretty much the start of the game, but it will take a long time to complete since many of the locations are locked behind storylines. This guide will help you find all of the necessary items as well as how to complete the quest.
In Bayek’s Promise, you’ll need to find a total of 12 stone circles. You can start as soon as the open exploration part of the game begins in Siwa, which is the opening area of the game. All of these circles are in the Ancient Egypt map, but there are no markers on the screen to indicate their location. As a result, you’ll need to rely on good ole’ exploration to find them. That is, of course, if you don’t read this guide. Since you’re up to this point already, however, you may as well use the help when you can get it. Below we list the locations of each of the twelve stone circles. The only requirement for retrieving them is that some locations are locked behind certain main story missions, so you’re better off waiting until you complete the map in order to make it easier on yourself.
To start the quest, you’ll need to find the first marker just south of Siwa. You can’t miss it and it forces the quest to begin.
The full list including the names of reference for the stones is as follows:
- Amun – Just south of Siwa as noted. Needed to start the mission
- Divine Lion – There is a ship where you can fast travel to. The circles are northeast of the ship
- Serqet – There is a temple up in the top left/northwest corner. The circles are directly west of it very close by.
- Hathor – There is an island in the center of the map. It’s very long and the circles are on the right/east side of the map about the midway point
- Goatfish – Almost back near the opening point of the game. On the far left/western area of the map near Siwa
- Apis – bottom left/southwest corner. You will see a point where three different points of the map meet and the circles will be there.
- Horus – Go to the fast travel point in the middle of the section and the circles are right there
- Scales – Once you find Horus, just go directly to the right/east and they’ll be extremely close by
- Osiris – Near the top of the map. It’s marked as an interest point and is the highest one up in this section.
White Desert Oasis
- The Great Twins – on the far right/east side of the water oasis
- Tawaret – There is a lair of hippos in the west/left of the section. The circles are directly east of it
- Pisces – On the east coast, just to the west of the lair of lions.
You’ll notice that the stones are named after constellations. This is because once you find them, you’ll need to line them up with their corresponding constellation in the sky. It’s easy, and you only need to move the camera around until they line up with the correct one. It sounds harder than it is and you’ll pick it up quite easily. Once you’ve found all of them, head all the way back to the first one in Siwa. Place a rock by the tree as indicated and then make your way to the Great Sphinx or Giza. You’ll notice an entrance in the rear that you can crawl through. Once inside, you’ll see twelve constellations on the ceiling. These, of course, are the ones you just found for all the stone circles and will all be lit up. If you happened to enter the Sphinx before completing the quest, the shape of the ones not lit up will tell you where you need to go next by their names.
Once you have all 12 circles set up, trigger the map and enter the room that opens up. There will be a huge mechanism here that you need to use, but you’ll need 50 silica in order to so. If you get here with 46 you’ll be fine as there are four pieces in the room. If you have less than that, you’ll need to craft some or plunder some tombs in order to get it.
Once you trigger the mechanism, simply sit back and enjoy the show as the quest will be complete.
We hope this helps, and let us know what you think of Assassin’s Creed: Origins so far.
