Players who love myth and lore adore Immortals Fenyx Rising. The game takes myth and tweaks it a little, giving us a new perspective on some of the most popular myths we’ve learned about. Every challenge in the game relates back to myth and legend. But just like myth and legend, not everything is entirely clear.
If you’re looking to finish out the lyre myth challenge but struggle with what the notes are, you’ve come to the right place! We have a way to complete the challenge and get a few extra Coins of Charon.

Throughout the world of Immortals Fenyx Rising, you’ll often come across several Big Lyres. These Big instruments are tied to Small Lyres hidden throughout each section of the map. In order to get to the Small Lyres, you’ll need to complete a few environmental puzzles. With the completion of each puzzle, you’ll be able to access the Small Lyre, where you will both hear and see a melody that can be played. This melody is to be played to the region’s Big Lyre. To play the melody, shoot the individual strings of the Big Lyre with your bow. Be sure to recreate the sequence of strings the Small Lyre played.
Playing the pattern on the Big Lyre will open a gate where you’ll find Coins of Charon. Coins of Charon are awesome because they unlock some of the most important skills and abilities for Fenyx. And the reality is, the Lyre Challenges are some of the fastest ways for you to get these upgrades.
What’s really great, though, is that you don’t need to find every Small Lyre to solve the puzzles. This guide will detail how to find the Big Lyres and what tunes to play. You’re welcome to continue to hunt for the Small Lyres, but if you’re interested in getting those sweet upgrades fast, you can bypass finding them and go straight to playing the Big Lyre once you find it.
To better understand this guide, we’re going to number the strings one through four, with one being the leftmost string on the Big Lyre.
Clashing Rocks Big Lyre location and notes
The first location with a Big Lyre you’re likely to run into is the Clashing Rocks lyre. This Big Lyre location is closer to the beginning of the game, just slightly southeast of the Messenger of the Gods statue. If you find a high point, you should be able to see it. This area has three different solutions.
- 2, 4, 1
- 4, 3, 4, 1
- 3, 1, 2, 4, 4
Valley of Eternal Spring Big Lyre location and notes
The Big Lyre here is fairly easy to find, as it’s right next to the Hall of the Gods. Or, depending on where you came in from, it’s northwest of the Goddess of Love statue. This location has four different Small Lyres, but these are the solutions.
- 2, 4, 1, 3
- 4, 2, 1, 4, 2

War’s Den Big Lyre location and notes
Once at War’s Den, head west from the God of War statue to see the Big Lyre. Or, if it’s easier, head to the Giant’s Fall fast travel point. That should put you pretty close to where the Big Lyre is, or, at the very least, it should make the Big Lyre easily visible. This region has four Small Lyres for you to play to get the Coins of Charon.

King’s Peak Big Lyre location and notes
King’s Peak is where you’ll find the sixth and final lyre for the challenge. Head to King’s Peak and look for the giant statue of an eagle. It may be difficult to locate through the snow, but if you search hard enough, you should see it. If it’s easier, the Big Lyre is directly west of the King of Gods statue. There are three solutions to pick up here.
