So I just got the armor of Brutus, and is it just me, or is it just plain weird looking? Armor of Altair looked so cool, and this doesn't even come close.

Yeah it's not my favorite, either. Personally I like the standard armor in Brotherhood when it's fully upgraded. I usually still get the Brutus armor anyway just because it's part of the storyline though.

it's not bad, but that armor you get for shop quests looks way nicer

An Assassin is supposed to be stealthy and quiet. Wearing heavy armour covered with dead wolf isn't gonna help that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Alta´r's armour was just awesome, too bad the 'armour' in Uplay was just a skin http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

So now I wear armor of Brutus and then load the Drachen Armor outfit on top of it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

yeah, i got it, at first thought it was kind of cool, then immediately thought it looked like a really crappy halloween costume. I would have preferred the roman armor from that play, even if it gave a negative health benefit, than the armor of brutus.

and whats with the eagle having feet sticking off the armor? Was taht something thrown on so when you lean against a wall and break the feet it would void the warranty?

The design of the Armor of Brutus is Based off of Roman general armor worn in the time period of Julius Caesar. I know I'm not the only one who caught that historic reference. The Eagle was a symbol of the Roman legion.

I personally thought it was pretty cool, if they had just not put the wolf pelt on it. Though the majority of Brutus's military career was spent in central and Northern Europe, the last decade plus was spent around the Mediterranean. Not to mention, it's highly unlikely any Roman general would wear some random wolf pelt.

The coloring and such of the actual armor gave it a sense of age. I think it helped tie in to the actual history of Rome, over all.

All this being said, I used the Drachen Armor skin for most of the game, Altair's for a bit, and the Raiden Skin since I hit 100% sync cause it fits in with the VR training better.

I thought the armor looked kinda alright, but I put the Armor of Altair skin on soon after i put the armor of brutus on, and played all of sequence 8 and 9 using that (am still using it)

Yeah I was so disappointed when I got it. I was really loving my default robes dyed Florentine Crimson with the Auditore cape and then I got the Brutus armor and was like o_O. I just ended up putting the Helmsheld (sp?) Drachen Armor on to cover it up.

its good to look better for fights and that but i prefer to wear standard when im doing stealth stuff and general free running.

however just a tip. get armor of brutus and then put the altairs armor skin over it. it has the same effect as altairs armor =P

im really ok with it since i usually play with either drachen armor or armor of altair skin on top of the brutus armor

but i do agree with what was said earlier, it fits the roman "theme" if i can use that term, and the whole storyline and history much better

but for visual sake
drachen and armor of altair for me :P sometimes seusenhofer as well http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

You can just buy the Armour of Altair, Original Armour of Altair or Ezio's Noble Attire from Uplay if you don't like Armour of Brutus..
