Immortals Fenyx Rising: Guide to Hermes’ Heroic Tasks Board Challenges

Once you have progressed past the Clashing Rocks tutorial area in Immortals Fenyx Rising, you’ll find the whole of the Golden Isle is open and waiting for you to explore. One of the places you’ll be frequenting a lot is the Hall of the Gods, as this is where you can speak to Hermes and the other gods you meet, as well as change your appearance, upgrade abilities, craft potions, and more.

One of the features at the Hall of the Gods is Hermes’ Heroic Tasks Board, where players can accept challenges that Hermes presents in order to receive some extra rewards. If you’re overwhelmed by the seemingly-herculean amount of tasks that Hermes offers, we’ve got a guide detailing exactly everything you need to know just below.

About the Heroic Tasks Board

Hermes’ Heroic Tasks Board offers two kinds of challenges — Heroic Tasks and Live Tasks. The Heroic tasks are split into four categories: Battle Tasks, Vaults of Tartaros Tasks, Exploration Tasks, and Myth Challenges Tasks, and these are all shown on the left-hand side of the board.

The rewards for the Heroic Tasks include Adamantine Shards, Ambrosia, Zeus’s Lightning, Golden Amber, and various weapons and armor. Some weapons are listed multiple times as rewards, but any subsequent times an armor of the same name is obtained, it is actually a reskin of the original for customization purposes. The Ultimate Armor sets all have different names but are all reskins of the Armor of Bright Divinity set.

On the right-hand side of the board are the Live Tasks, and these can only be accepted and viewed if you are online. These tasks change regularly and so are never-ending in that respect. These special tasks reward players with Elektrum, which can be spent at Hermes’ Fleet-Footed Merch store by speaking to him in the Hall of the Gods.

Completing all 36 of the Heroic tasks will unlock the “More than Twelve Labours” achievement/trophy. Live Tasks do not count towards this accolade.

Remember, if you can’t find a certain vault, chest type, or type of Myth Challenge, you can use Far Sight to scan your surroundings and locate any nearby points of interest.

Battle Tasks

The Battle tasks will challenge you to defeat a range of enemies, from aggressive animals (such as bears and lions) to wraiths of legendary heroes, right up to unique boss monsters. When it comes to the bosses, we’ve got handy guides as to their locations and how to defeat them listed next to the appropriate tasks.

Vaults of Tartaros Tasks

The Vaults of Tartaros Tasks will have you completing various vaults. There are two different kinds of vaults in the game, as well as varying difficulties and objectives within. Here’s a quick rundown of what you need to know.

  • Normal Vaults: Vaults that are full of puzzles for you to solve.
  • Arena Vaults: Vaults that only have one area, in which you must defeat waves of enemies. These are generally called “Arena of…”. (arena vault locations are covered in our Molten Fragment Guide).
  • Difficulty: Each vault will be marked with one to three Typhon heads, depicting its difficulty. One head is easy difficulty, two heads are medium difficulty, and three heads indicate hard difficulty.
  • Objectives: Each vault has more than one objective, one is to loot the chest at the end of the vault and this is a non-missable objective. However, some vaults contain additional optional chests. You can see how many chests are in each vault when you examine the vault, or from the menu when inside the vault. Tasks that require you to complete all objectives want you to find all chests within the vault.
