Odysseus’s ship puzzle in Immortals Fenyx Rising

As part of Athena’s Go Do Hero Things! quest in Immortals Fenyx Rising, at one point you’ll be tasked with returning Odysseus’s ship home. Whatever the hell that means. It’s a very simple puzzle really, but it’s easy to miss where to find the ship and where you should take it once you have it.

In order to be at the “Return Odysseus’s ship home” part of the quest, you’ll need to have just found the stele of Odysseus – the slab of writing which talks about how Odysseus outsmarted a nation and won back the heart of his love. If you’re stuck, go back to where you found this stele, which is right here on the map:

Okay, this image really kinda tells you everything you need to know, but I’ve written it out below anyway.

Next, look to the east and you’ll see a great big horse statue. Fly over to it, press the button at its base, and defeat the enemies that spawn in front of you. After that, ascend the horse statue’s back, and you’ll find a miniature of Odysseus’s ship at the top, which you can carry around with your Herakles’s Strength power.

How to return Odysseus’s ship home

To return Odysseus’s ship home, throw the ship across the river in front of the horse statue, then follow after it. In the clearing across the river there’s another statue (humanoid, this time) guarded by a cyclops. Leave the ship for the moment, and deal with the cyclops.

After the cyclops is killed, carry the ship over to the second statue and place it on the pedestal at its base. And that’s it! You’re onto the next stage of the quest.

Hopefully this short guide helped you if you’ve been towing that ship around with you for a while and scratching your head.
