The Hedonistic Method is a side quest in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey involving Thespis.
Your task is to look for an actor for Thespis’ play who went missing, and may be in a cult.
Here’s a walkthrough of The Hedonistic Method in AC Odyssey.
This quest is recommended for those level 47 and above, but it differs according to your own level.
To begin the quest, find Ephialtes.
Find and talk to Ephialtes
Ephialtes is a person who may know where the actor is. Her exact location is shown in the map below, marked as the quest symbol.
She’s at the Forgotten Swamps.
As you get there, she’ll say that her name is Hedone, and everyone else is called Hedone here. Some weird cult huh?
You will have to perform the initiation rites to be able to find the actor.
You need to first jump from the top of the waterfall and later find a cave and obtain the treasure.
Jump from the waterfall
You should see the waterfall nearby. Climb to the top of the branch.
Jump from here into the water.
You should find treasure underneath the water, but it’s not part of the quest.
Find the cave for the treasure
Now, climb up to the top as there’s a cave here.
Here’s another view of where the cave should be. The opening is just a small gap so you need to narrowly walk in.
Inside the cave, you will find a pool of water. You need to dive underneath and get to the next area.
Keep going until you can surface from the water. The treasure is just there, at a corner.
Talk to Hedone
After getting the treasure, go back to Hedone, the woman you first talked to.
She’s now standing above the waterfall, near the branch where you jumped into the water.
Talk to her and she’ll allow you to talk to the potential actors.
There are five people here, but only two will be good enough to replace the actor.
I recruited the one furthest from me. Just mention during the conversation that he’s good enough to be in the play.
And that’s it for this quest.
