So is Desmond long forgotten? He had so much potential.

I don't think you can say he's forgotten when he's dead.

He's been dead since 2012, so... yeah.

They give you extra ability points for any excess XP you had, but not levels, apparently.

They added a new system to abilities where you can spend points on stat buffs, a bit like with engravings, but now you can customize it yourself. Some of the buffs seem rather marginal, and you have to sink a lot of points in them to get to 10 percent. Each buff needs a whopping 20 points to fill out.

[up] Yah, but I'm fine with that. It's having to level my gear again that pisses me off coz I already did that. then the DLC is "We're raising the cap 20 points for no reason other than larger numbers I guess".

But "doing that" is a pretty good mechanic, and a decent way to spend the twenty million drachmae that the game just throws at you.

The drachma aren't the issue, it's the several thousands of the ressources the game expect me to farm to upgrade each piece of armor.

If I wanted to farm trash I'd be playing Fallout 76.

Wood, metal, and leather? There's fortresses brimming with all of those. Honestly, steal about six War Supplies and you're good to go. Or sink twice that number of ships.

Yeah no? War chests only give out cash

Supply Crates which you burn give about 70 to 100 of each ressources

at about 1.5 to 2k for each resources PER ITEM you're doing more than "a few forts"

How long are you waiting in between upgrades? The more levels different you are between you and your chosen equipment, the more the resource cost.

Also, blacksmiths always sell supplies. I never leave town without buying them out dry. Cougars and boars throw themselves on your blades. tapping Y while you run or ride around in the overworld has you randomly pick up sticks and iron ore from the pieces that lie everywhere.

Then again, I haven't changed my armor for several weeks because I found my exact preference of stat boosts. Same with my spear, my sword, and my bow. I got the bow that converts regular arrows into poison arrows for free. It's so gooooood

Save my weapons and greaves, all of my gear is purple so upgrading won't be too painful. Though now that you can pick what skin you want for your equipment that could change.

I love that they applied that to weapons too. Now I can pick a look I like and stick with it.

Arguably, purple gear is better anyway because you have four active stats at any time on it, as opposed to gold gear which has one stat grayed out that only becomes active with a complete set.

My thoughts exactly.

Finished the first episode of the new DLC. Fun enough, adds a decent bit of content for a 5-hour dlc. Though it is kinda samey: quests, mercenaries, cultists as the Order of the Ancients.

Not bad, all told, but the episodic release kinda drags.

Basically on the DLC and some free missions.
