Xathenos is a MYTHIC TROOP available through crafting, the new game feature which is a major new feature of Title Update 3.1.

Xathenos is a new Mythic that is only (edit) available from the Soulforge, and is always craftable. Other legendaries and mythics will only be craftable for a week.

EDIT: The troop has been reported to be obtainable by other means. The first person to get this achievement received it at end of a pack bought at the store (some packs give you a random mythic troop, namely PATH TO GLORY II and GROWTH PACK II.) Well, these packs cost a lot of money and the chances you will get this particular mythic troop are very slim. Also, this might be a bug that will be fixed.


To forge mythics and legendaries, you have to unlock SOULFORGE (quest line in Blighted lands) and upgrade it to LEVEL 10.

To upgrade soulforge, you need to get a given number of kills OR spend an amount of gems for each level. (Since you will be farming souls, you will probably level up the soul forge on kills alone, without the need to spend gems.)

Just don't forget that you have to upgrade the soulforge manually when you have made enough kills. You can't farm kills and then level up the forge several levels. It has to be done one level at a time.


This is the recipe:

- 50,000 Souls (can earn them in game or spend $$$ or gems, or NEW you can craft them from diamonds in soulforge lvl 9)
- 300 Gems (this is the easiest, can earn this in game, or spend $$$)
- 4,000 Diamonds (crafting material , craftable from shards or available through daily dungeons - a new minigame.)
- Eye of Xathenos (legendary hero weapon, previously available in an event, can be crafted)
- Heart of Xathenos (hero weapon, can be crafted)
- Soul of Xathenos (hero weapon, can be crafted)

NightHawk673 has just clarified the requirements for forging the weapons:
Heart of Xathenos - 100k Souls, 300 Red and Purple Jewels, 50 Gems and 3 Celestials
Eye of Xathenos - 100k Souls, 300 Blue and Purple Jewels, 50 Gems and 3 Celestials
Soul of Xathenos - 100k Souls, 300 Yellow and Purple Jewels, 50 Gems and 3 Celestials


As you see above, you will need a lot of souls. No worries, they can be farmed. You will need a troop that generates souls (like The Dragon Soul), and three troops with the necromancy trait unlocked.

Normally, you can get 40 souls per battle. If this was it, we would have a long road ahead of us, farming the 350K souls.

Now, if you have a troop with the necromancy trait in your team, it gives a 50% souls bonus (and increases the souls cap). One troop - extra 20 souls. If you have three in the team, the cap will be 100 souls.

On the troops tab, set the filter to show you all the troops with the necromancy trait that you have. If you've played Gems of War for a while, you will probably have a bunch. Duplicates work too.

If you have the mythic Pharos-Ra, he has the Master necromancer trait (the third trait), which gives an extra 150% souls, so that is even better. If you have three Pharos-Ras, this will be super easy.

On top of this, you need an armor that gives a good soul bonus. I suggest the Celestial armor obtainable from the shop for 500 gems. It gives a 100% soul bonus.

Now to farm most effectively, do challenges or explore battles wih the difficulty setting as high as you can easily manage. The higher the difficulty, the more souls you get. If you set it too high, though, each battle might take too long. It's best if you can beat the last enemy soon after having reached the soul cap.


Diamonds can be earned by defeating dungeon bosses and purchasing daily bonuses for gems.

Each day you can fight three dungeon bosses. Defeating the first one will gve you the option to purchase the daily bonus for 50 gems.

This will take ages. Check Kugare's detailed solution on how to get diamonds.
