Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – How to Get Olive Wood

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is out now for a lot of people, with the full release on Friday. One of the most prominent resources in the game is Olive Wood, which has a number of important uses in the game. In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Olive Wood is something you’ll need to gather a lot of, but how do you get Olive Wood? What is Olive Wood used for? We’ll do our best to help you out.

How to Get Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Olive Wood

There are several ways to get hold of Olive Wood in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The first, and most basic, is by exploring and scavenging around the land areas of the map. As you wander around you’ll see certain plants growing out of the ground, which will shimmer to indicate they can be picked up. These plants give a small number of Olive Wood. At sea you’ll find bundles of it as you sail around. Just keep an eye out while you’re wandering the world and grab it as you pass.

The second, and more reliable, is from looting either chests, enemies, or ships. While in chests it is random what money, gear or resources you’ll get, sunken ships will almost certainly have some wood for you to steal.

The third way is by dismantling gear, but make sure the gear you’re dismantling will give you the stuff before you do it. The final place you can find Olive Wood is a Merchant, who will always have resources to sell, but not always the one you’re after. We personally found Olive Wood at the Merchant by the Sanctuary of Delphi. Go have a look if you’ve got drachmae to spend.

Want Do You Need Olive Wood For?

Olive Wood is supposedly the best kind of wood for building things, which why you can’t just go to a tree and cut it down to get any old type of wood. You need Olive Wood for upgrading weapons, armor, and parts of your ship, and most of these require a lot of the resource. You’ll need as much Olive Wood as you can carry, and you’ll certainly never have enough…
