How the hell are you supposed to kill a templar?! I'm on my way to my first main assassination and I see a templar, or at least what I think is one - red helmet/sword, cross on his front. So I decide to investigate, he attacks me before I can get anywhere near him, then I try to retaliate, all my blows are blocked and/or countered and I'm dead within seconds, am I doing something wrong?!

Also, what are these altair icons?

Thanks, John.

you...attack him? Sorry, but he's the same as any other enemy, just a bit harder. And he doesn't notice you if you sneak up on him.

Not sure what you mean there... anyone offer anything a bit more constructive?

Right, finaly got him, managed to throw him on the floor and then hack him up, he was pretty hard though, how come combos don't work with him?

Um, he's just skilled like that? No, I don't use combos. I've been able to take down all my templars with the counter.

i must admit i avoided templars until i got a bit more life and thecounter kills

4 life notches and no counter attack vs a templar is pretty damn tough

Yeah it wasnt the easiest thing I've ever done!

Forget the thing about altairs, I've just realized it the marker for me on the map, and the embaressment creeps in!

Thanks

Don't see the problem after getting the hidden blade really. I've stealth killed about 50 of 60 templars I've killed.

I've tried that but every time I get within about 5 foot they go mental and draw their swords! I think its possibly because I haven't completed the first assassination yet?

No. Just approach them from a blindspot and it's dead easy. Must be hard to see through those tiny holes in the helmet. Either sneak behind him and slowly if you're close then hold the high profile trigger if you want for faster kill and move up until the attack button says "assassinate". Same goes for aerial assassinations, but they CAN miss if you're in a tight spot.

If you're having trouble beating one Templar you got a lot of synchronizing to do :S

Try to come up from behind him, walk slowly, and press the X (Legs) button. Then hit him with the hidden blade.

Cheers for the help, now I can counter attacks and grabs its pretty easy, what are aerial assasinations?

I find the best way to beat him is too wait until he goes to grab you, you disrupt and kick him down to the floor. When hes down run over and chop him up while hes down. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

i personally love hunting down the templars and so far i've got about 55 of them of which 90% were all hidden blade kills.

There are 2 or 3 that are standing in corners with no access behind them... which you pretty much have to face head-on. With those, you can lead them away from their spot, lose them and hide, when they head back to their spot you can get them from behind http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif
