In the absence of any news, here's a dumb thread to take your mind off of Origins/Empire :p

Like the poll says. Here's mine.

8. The Aegis

https://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/assassinscreed/images/4/45/04_TheAegis_02.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20151023134909

Just no. Looks horrid with all of the glowy magnetic field crap, and clashes horribly with both the time period and good taste.

7. Armor of Brutus

https://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/assassinscreed/images/0/06/Armor-brutus-brotherhood.png/revision/latest?cb=20111130221839

Words cannot describe the disappointment I felt when I first unlocked this hideous, unreasonably bulky POS. At least it came with a cool knife.

6. Armor of Ishak Pasha

https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/assassinscreed/images/c/c4/Armor-ishakpasha-revelations.png/revision/latest?cb=20111130165925

Marginally trimmer than that of Brutus, this one was still unnecessarily enormous. Am I an Assassin, or a freakin' tank? I never understood why the Revelations devs felt the need to slap garish face masks on everything, either.

5. 11th-century Templar Armor

https://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/assassinscreed/images/9/99/ACRG_Templar_11th_century_armour.png/revision/latest?cb=20150513150005

Rogue has a wealth of legitimately really cool outfits, but... this is not one of them. Not only does it feel out of place with the era, it also just looks really bland compared to the other Templar-themed outfits in the game.

4. Mayan Armor

https://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/assassinscreed/images/6/63/AC4_Mayan_outfit.png/revision/latest?cb=20131119063816

I suppose I'm a bit of a hypocrite for liking this one while hating the Aegis, but I always thought it looked pretty cool, and I like wearing it for the finale of the game. Headcanon says Edward retrieved it from the Tulum shrine as a gesture of his willingness to commit to the Assassins.

3. Thomas de Carneillon's Robes

https://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/assassinscreed/images/d/dc/ACU_Thomas_Outfit.png/revision/latest?cb=20141118211058

Yeah, it's literally just a black and leather reskin of Altair's robes, and it even has his empty and unusable knife sheath. Still cool as heck.

2. Armor of Altair

https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/assassinscreed/images/c/cb/Armor-altair-ac2.png/revision/latest?cb=20111201001649

The OG of Assassin's Creed ultimate armors (and arguably the one that kicked off an unnecessary trend of random armors being locked in underground vaults for some reason) this is still one of the best this series has offered. Though I could do without the stripey clown sleeves.

1. Achilles' Robes

https://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/assassinscreed/images/7/7d/ACIII-AchillesOutfit.png/revision/latest?cb=20121216073535

It irks me to this day that it doesn't have a quiver, and the double holsters still have a tendency to glitch out and give you mismatched pistols, but this outfit looks like something that (gasp) an Assassin would actually wear! Couple that with a great backstory and a snazzy blue sash, and you've got my favorite ultimate outfit of the series.

I went with the Aegis. The magnetic field stuff was a bit odd, but I liked how it looked lace-y when the lighting was just right. =) Close seconds are the Armor of Altair and the Mayan armor.

Prisoner Outfit from the AC3 is the Ultimate Outfit

but from that list Achilles and Altair are the good looking ones, and also AC4's Templar oufit. In addition to the Templar outfit unless you're limiting it to one outfit per game you could also probably count Rogue's Viking and Native armor and AC3's Captain Kidd outfit as "ultimate outfits" since like these they are unlocked by completing questlines or collecting a lot of stuff.

Probably a tie between Thomas de Carneillon's and the 11th century armour, not a big fan of either of them, though.

The Armor of Ishak Pasha for me, followed by the Armor of Altair.

On my own choice, I'd say Connor's outfit, because the legs look like something a native could have used during colonial times and I really love the color of the rest of the outfit, with the original colors, instead of paying to change them.

On your list, I'd say the Aegis, because, even if I admit it's not going well with the time period, I think it looks good on Evie. The only reason I was making her wear the another outfit in my ac series, is because while the outfit I make Evie were is poweruping the Kukry, with one of the kukry being THE best weapon of syndicate the Aegis is poweruping the cane sword.

Thomas de Carneillon's robes. My only complaint is that you can't put a short blade in the sheath. If there is nothing that you can put in the sheath then I don't understand why they didn't just remove it.

I love the look of the Aegis, but the shimmer effect really ruined it as it messed my eyes up. :p To the point I barely used it.

My fave unique outfit remains Aveline's Voodoo number. I love its scrambled together appearance, and the facepaint is pretty intimidating.

Ooops. I accidentally voted for the Templar Armor without paying attention to the "11th century" part!

My favourite ultimate armour was not that one, in fact, but the Black Flag Templar armour that Edward had to unlock from the mansion. Great silhouette, but I also liked it being hoodless.

05-21-2017, 03:34 PM
I agree that although I liked the Aegis outfit, it did irritate my eyes a bit while playing lol.

And I like the Armour of Altair and Achilles' outfit :)

As a side note, I liked Shay's killer oufit in Rogue, but didn't wear it much because he wore a mask that covered most of his face.

Farlander1991
05-21-2017, 04:14 PM
None.

Armor of Altair is OK (but after wearing it for a bit I switched to Ezio's default robes because they're better), and Thomas' outfit while cool is nothing more than Altair's outfit, so not the height of originality there.

Other than that...
Brotherhood's and Revelation's ultimate outfits are very bulky and ugly, Aegis is a I don't even know what it is, Achiless outfit design is good, but doesn't suit Connor at all (looks good on Achilless, though). Mayan and Templar armor I like how they look, but would never wear either of them. BTW, isn't Templar Armor from ACIV (the one that we unlock in Mansion) considered Ultimate as well? At any rate, wouldn't wear it for the same reason - it's cool, but no thanks.

And you know what's funny? There's a LOT of non-default robes that I really like in these games. A lot of them are in Rogue actually, that game is full of very cool authentic period outfits (though also stuff like Viking armor... for some reason?), but ultimate outfits are pretty much never among those that I consider to be great.

I wear NONE of all these ultimate outfits on daily basis.

Indeed!!!!

The majority of Rogue outfits besides looking really cool actually make sense in the concept of the story and setting and even among who don't, there's gems like this one:

One my favorites in all the series.




PS I despite the fact there's been MANY euro centered games, I will wish for a XIII / XIV european game and that outfit above is one of the reasons.

Usually with lists of all kinds no two people have the exact same order, but in this case I agree with OP's list 100%. For a moment I considered putting Armor of Brutus as last, but nope, the Aegis is worse.

Achilles' outfit is by far the best one. I hate bulky armor, I always choose outfits that best blend in with the environment, and Achilles' robes are pretty much the only ones that look both slick and practical.

I'm going to go with Armour of Altair for my favourite ultimate outfit. But, out of all the outfits in the games, aside from Armour of Altair, I'd say my favourite would be Arno's Fearless Outfit. That one looked just perfect for the era and didn't seem too shiny like Arno's original/tailored outfit.

I liked Connor's TTKW outfit, 'cause of his abs. :)

On a serious note, Shay's Templar Master Outfit is awesome, and I think that should be the "Ultimate" outfit, because the Ship battles were a pain.

Yeah, Rogue is tricky because it has a ton of unlockable outfits. For this list I just chose the 11th-century Templar one because it followed the whole "suit of armor locked in a cage" trend that AC2 started. I could have included the Native and Viking armors too, I guess, but the Templar one seemed more immediately pertinent since it's a Templar game.

That said, I'm amazed that the Aegis is doing so well in the poll. I absolutely freaking despised that thing, lol. Took it off immediately after unlocking it and never looked back.

Aegis is a I don't even know what it is,

Aegis is the war armor of Minerva, in the lore. ^-^

I chose Ishak because I always thought the mask was really cool, but I also really like 11th Century Templar.

Also, while it's aesthetically just kinda decent, I always thought it was neat that the Brutus armor looks a whole lot like Ezio's travelling robes in ACR. Kind of a neat continuity bit there.

Overall, some of my other favorite outfit sets are:
Purple jester inspired outfit in Unity
Hunter Outfit with broadsword and dual pistols in Rogue- felt like Roland from the Dark Tower

I kinda like the Aegis one myself, though I wish it didn't do the flicker effect. Main reason is that headcanon says this is why Evie can do the invisibility thing.

Least favourite has gotta be ACB's Brutus's armour, but I just put the Helmschmied Drachen Armor skin over it.

I really like that. Not a bad explanation for one of the weirder abilities in this series. Now we just need a reason that Arno is a Skrull shapeshifter.

Maybe Altair recolor from Unity.
Not exactly ultimate outfit but Colonial nutcracker monstrosity from AC3 still annoys me after seeing a far more interesting looking concept art piece.

I was torn between, the Aegis, and Achilles' Robes simply because I might have an ac3 bias, but they just bet fit the time period and overall look as a 1700s assassin, the Aegis is cool for obvious reasons.

It looks amazing, especially when we're cloaked. I picked the Aegis and Achilles' robes. Would've included Thomas' but they're just Altair's with a different tint. Now if Arno drowned if he tried to swim while wearing either robe then it would've made it on the list.

Speaking of ultimate armors, is this something you would like to continue seeing in future games?

Personally I think the concept has gotten old long ago. They keep having to come up with more and more contrived reasons for the assassins to run into some supposedly indestructable armor that will disappear by the next game. The Aegis was just lying in a London sewer that anybody could have walked into. It's like even the writers don't care anymore since they know they have to throw it somewhere.

I always liked the Altair outfit (not armor). I used it in every game it was available. In Unity I used Thomas de Carneillon's Robes, they look very stylish and true to the creed.

Depends on how they're implemented. I like how in ACII and ACB the armor was won by going on a Da Vinci Code style marathon through ruins, temples, and tombs. ACR's final tomb was cool, but the data points required to get into it seemed kind of contrived. Same with the Peg Leg maps in ACIII... though I loved the parkour "puzzles" in ACIII, I though they were pretty unique for the game.

The difference between these is that the tombs were fun to do and you got a (somewhat silly) reward for doing them. In more recent games, it's really just a collectathon. Sure, you can get the armor if it means that much to you, but you'll have to do a lot of busywork first. I'd rather enjoy my experience getting it- because at least if I don't particularly like the armor, I at least had fun getting it. That's where I think AC needs to head to.

To me the whole concept of an ultimate armor stopped making sense after Ezio's time. Armor was still around to some extent in the centuries thereafter, but it really doesn't make sense for someone like Edward or Shay. It also feels like an unimaginative reward after we've had so many. I would much prefer an unlockable lore-related mission or revelation as a reward, like the Subject 16 glyphs had. Or even an Easter egg, like how AC3 gave you the opportunity to use Leonardo's flying machine after running some errands for the carpenter. Just something more interesting than an outfit I'm never gonna wear anyway due to how ugly they tend to be.

Yeah, they've definitely gotten lazier about it in the more recent games. I mean, at least in AC2 and ACB, we got some cool mini-missions along the way to unlocking it, but I mean, collecting 30-some music boxes just lying on park benches and random smokestacks around London? That's pretty freaking weak.

That said, I'm not dead-set on having this type of reward in future games, but given that we're going to ancient Egypt next (where pharaohs were buried in mazelike underground crypts filled to the brim with grave goods including armor, weapons, and other instruments of battle) it's kind of a no-brainer for this game. If it doesn't fit as well with future settings, though, I wouldn't mind losing it.

I think an Ultimate Something is important, though not necessarily armor. For instance, I incorrectly stated earlier in this thread that the Peg Leg missions (which, apart from the trinket collecting, I found to be a hidden treasure in ACIII) led to the ultimate ACIII armor. They actually led to the weird bulletproof TWCB artifact thing.

While I wouldn't necessarily want a TWCB reward for completing these (I think that we should get those- non nerfed- by completing the main quest, like if Unity had given the Sword of Eden at the end of the game, still with lightning powers), I do think that we could get other things for completing Tomb style missions.

For instance, instead of the ultimate armor in Black Flag awarded for collecting stuff, maybe instead have Edward explore Mayan tombs, eventually awarding him something like extra potent smoke bombs.

Or perhaps Arno could've explored tombs in the Catacombs, only to get a prototypical version of the rope launcher (braces for backlash).

Or, it could even be storyline based- the Frye twins could complete tombs in London and be rewarded with a POE that allows them to communicate across time to Lydia- allowing Lydia to continue her training after the twins' deaths and showing Jacob and Evie the horrors to come in WWI.

Well, in fact you were right about the outfit. Completing every missions for the treasure, also give the captain Kidd outfit. ^-^
