Make Fenyx shine with these skills

There are plenty of ways to power up your hero in Immortals Fenyx Rising. You can choose to boost your attack capabilities, augment your dodge move, or even strengthen your Godly Powers, but these upgrades aren’t cheap. You’ll have to collect many Coins of Charon to spend at the River Styx Cistern

In this Immortals Fenyx Rising guide, we’ll show you the best abilities to unlock first — or at the very least, our favorite early game skills. We’ll give you tips on the best offensive skills to gain right away and why you should spend your hard-earned cash on stamina-focused talents.

In our Immortals Fenyx Rising beginner’s guide, we mentioned a few of the talents worth having right at the start of the game. Below we’ll detail even more skills worth getting throughout your journey.

Best early game offensive skills

Sword and Axe Counter Attacks are a great set of offensive talents that make parrying even more effective. After a parry (blocking just before an enemy attack lands), you can either unleash a sword or axe strike, plus an additional effect. The Sword Counter Attack deals 160 damage and refills 90% of a Stamina Chunk on hit. The Axe Counter Attack deals 200 damage and 350 points of stun damage. Both can be performed mid-air.

Best early game stamina skills

Climb Leap is one of the first stamina-focused skills you should unlock. It allows you to climb up faster while consuming less stamina.

Swim Dash makes you swim faster while consuming less stamina. This is an important one because if you run out of stamina while swimming, you’ll be brought back to the last place you touched solid ground and you’ll lose one chunk of health.

Glide Boost allows you to fly farther and faster while consuming less stamina. Trust us: You’ll be flying a lot. Getting father faster sooner is better.

Other skills

Telekinesis Gathering automatically collects all ingredients in a short range around you. It’s not the most flashy skill, but it’s a good time saver for grabbing crafting ingredients. With this skill, you can can also grab multiple ingredients automatically while riding your horse.

Precision Control is Godly Powers upgrade that lets you control the speed of Apollo’s Arrows. If you like doing Odysseus challenges, then you’ll find the ability to finely control your arrow’s speed very useful.
