Trial of the Gods - Sobek
Face the Lord of Waters
November 21–November 28
The second Trial of the Gods is upon you. Will you prove strong enough to face Sobek or will you be devoured?
Only the strongest will survive this act of defiance, the rest will become a feast for the god and his hungry children.
The Divinity from Faiyum
Sobek was a god that embodied one of the fiercest predators known to Ancient Egypt. The Nile crocodile was known in particular for its voracity, size, and strength. Egyptians were wary enough to recite spells for protection when crossing known crocodile waters.
Known as the fearsome Lord of Waters, Sobek is the god of water and fertility. Much like his children, Sobek was a figure that was both feared and respected. Portrayed often as a crocodile or crocodile-headed man, Sobek strikes an impressive figure that confirms the danger of crossing him.
According to ancient sources, there were crocodiles specifically bred to honor Sobek in the temples dedicated to him. If you visit the Faiyum temple to Sobek in Assassin’s Creed® Origins, you might meet some of these famous embodiments of the god.
In order to face Sobek, you must have completed the questline called Aya. Once you have finished that sequence, you will get a notification for a quest and a location where you will do battle.
While you can attempt this Trial at any point after receiving the quest, the recommended level for facing Sobek is 40.
You will receive one item from the Anubis Gear Set on your first successful completion of the event. If you want to keep testing your skills, you will continue to receive XP and drachmas.
