Spent the better part of 2 days doing all of the Nostradamus Enigma puzzles. They're a real PITA, there's way too many of them and it takes entirely too much time.

If you don't have a really good working knowledge of Paris, you're going to spend a lot of time on Google.

It's a very painful process. But, hey, it's totally worth it, right? I mean, similar things in past ACs gave us a sweet armor set (if they sometimes looked awful). We're told the fragments unlock a legendary set of armor.

So I open the cage, and...

I get a COSTUME?!?!?! That's IT?!?!?! Not even a good one. It's basically Altair's uniform in different colors!!!! No armor. No boost to stats. No special effect.

Say it isn't so. Please tell me I missed something.

You missed the fact that it gets you a trophy and one step closer toward 100%/Platinum. Therefore, it is totally worth it. For me, at least.

Yes, that's it, and the costume is just a colour swap of Altair's robes. Fun, huh?

If you play games for trophies, yeah, but for some of us, trophies/achievements don't matter at all.

You know, i actually started doing that before i took the game back but was only able to complete 3. But since you are saying that it doesnt do **** for the stats and all it is, is just a different color of another outfit, im glad i didnt waste my time on it cuz i would have undoubtedly thrown my controller at the wall.

Gotta love the lack of a good reward system in this game. I dont care if it was for trophies either. I would have wanted not just the trophy but also that stat increase. You know, just like with ACBF and Brotherhood? I collected all 5 keys and got the Templar outfit and that had a nice stat boost. Just like when i got all the Myan keystones for the myan outfit that was a precursor armor and found out that had a better stat increase than that of the Templar armor. And i collected all the stone tablets to unlock Altairs armor for THAT stat increase. Not to mention Revelations and the armor of Brutus after i went hunting for that as well.

I dont know why Ubisoft strayed from that in this game.

Then why'd you try and get the armor. You know there's a preview of what it looks like if you go under the 'Outfits' section of Equipment, right? That's what it is - Altair's costume in different colors.

Because even in game they say "ARMOR." Not "clothing."

Based on past ACs, this would imply a great set. Hell, I'd even be happy with a single UBER piece. Nope. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Just some pretty blue rags I'll never wear and wouldn't want.

Like mentioned before, the full sets of armors from previous games like Altair's armor in AC2, Brutus' armor in ACB, a couple of sets in ACR, they all were actual sets of armor with properties. Compared to those, this is just an outfit which is mislabelled as armor.
