Think I'm 95% of the way there just from playing normally, only the underwater locations are annoying. At least it's not Origins where they literally made you complete every location. Too bad I don't care about achievements since there is no actual platinum.
 
Easy but tedious. Visiting all the underwater locations was not on to do list. I didn’t really want to do any board missions either. There were already too many things. I think I ended up completing like 75% of the trophies.

Oh well.
That one wasn't too bad. I had most of them completed by the time I finished the main story. There are some good guides out there that show you where all 42 of them are. The guide PowerPyx made is especially helpful.

The most annoying trophy for me personally was Hermes's Homey, which required you to set foot in all regions. Some of them are damn hard to see on the map unless you zoom all the way in.

I’m closing in on 90 hours and I’ve barely touched the main storyline. I’ve just about eliminated all the cultists that I can so far, got quite a few locked behind the story.

I’ve been working on this game for almost two months now, feel like I’ve got at least two more weeks until I’m done. My backlog is never gonna clear up at this rate. Persona 5 isn’t gonna help either. Think I’m gonna play a couple indies after this one.

Anyone know how I can find the new tiers of Mercenaries? I've been picking off any that I come across but they're always my level or below.

i had issues where the game would start to stutter, the player character would disappear, and sometimes the game would freeze completely and require a restart but nothing that required me to reboot the console completely.

Yeesh, sounds like a problem with your hardware. :|
I hope not I didn't buy it all that long ago and Assasins Creed is the only game that does it. Its not during gameplay, its only when its first loading.

I've also had similar to this, the game would slow down like crazy and then I'd see a character glitching, basically a mesh stretched out to infinity.

Started playing this on the One X a few days ago, and this game has frozen up on me about three times, and crashed on me about five times—usually when quickly going through the menus, or loading an auto save.

Has Odyssey for the Xbox One been like this since launch, or was this introduced in one of the patches?

Internal drive or external. Had similar issues on the Pro, decided to put in a spare SSD (for X this could be external) and that remedied all of my issues.

Does anyone know where I can purchase the official novelization in audiobook format in the United States?

I’ve checked all the major English language retailers in Europe and none of them will allow me to purchase the audiobook with a credit card from the U.S.

It is a shame the publisher has restricted the audiobook to regions outside the U.S. I really enjoy listening to these books when I’m cooking or doing chores.

It's on the internal drive. I'll transfer it tonight, see if that fixes things. Thanks!
Played for a couple of hours today, and haven't experienced any freezing or crashing, so this seems to be the solution. Thanks again.

So... I was pretty happy to see that Odyssey had a manual save function; really wanted this in Origins. But what is up with the auto save? It does it constantly in like minute-long intervals. Why isn't there an option to adjust how often the game auto saves? Or just disable it outright?

I’ve had 3 crashes since the latest patch and 0 before it. I don’t know if it makes a difference but I use energy saver so the game gets a fresh boot every time, in case you’re using suspend and instant on.

Edit: I should add that’s 3 crashes in around 12 hours of play time.

Heh, the other day I had something really weird happen.

I was swimming to an island, and about halfway there my health bar and everything popped up like an enemy appeared and a battle was about to start. I turned around to see a lion swimming after me, a lion that just appeared out of nowhere. It eventually stopped as I reached dry land. I watched as it swam around in a circle before going in the opposite direction for a little bit and then suddenly dying.

Needless to say, me and Kassandra both walked away in complete bewilderment.

I don't think that's what they mean when they talk about sea lions...

I was playing earlier and after I knocked a guy off a tower he yelled at me “get back here!” as he fell to his death. Reminded me of the black knight from Holy Grail

Malaka! Finally finished the three main narratives after 90-100hrs. Well, it was an enjoyable if not totally memorable ride while it lasted. The one thing that was quite annoying was those endless fetching/rescuing narratives during the missions. Ubisoft, surely you can come up with something better in terms of writing. Even Kassandra seemed to be fed up with these in the end. Might still do a few missions here and there, but yeah, time to put this in bed.

So i jumped back in today to finally start the dlc missions, and i was wondering something. I thought they said that all the extra xp you earned after hitting level 50 would be automatically applied after the level cap increase. But i know i had a ton of extra xp but i'm still level 50. Did i misread this somewhere or is my game bugged?

I don't think you were supposed to get the additional levels, just the ability points.

Nope. They said that with the specific update you're referring to, you'd get all of the back XP you'd earned after hitting the level cap. The assumption was that this meant level-ups. I don't know if they changed things on the fly for technical reasons or there was a miscommunication, but the update only gave ability points in lieu of actual level increases.

Welp I just finished the main quest and I think I got the worst ending possible. Never had that happen to me before but I’m not surprised. It seemed like I made the wrong decision just about every time.

What is a "bad" ending? I have no idea what ending I got - didn't seem "good" or "bad", just generic.

The "bad" ending for the main storyline would be your entire family dies and you're alone.
Damn, that's brutal. I could see
not sparing Deimos because he's an ass and all (brainwashed or not), but how does one get Myrrine to die? ;_; In my ending I had both Deimos and Myrrine, but I happily murdered the Wolf (fuck people who toss babies and children off cliffs) and I didn't even get the option to spare his stupid adopted "son" so I kicked his ass too. :3

You can spare the "son" if you let the wolf live and speak with him later and respond a certain way. My family lived happily ever after so I'm not 100% sure but I think Deimos will kill Myrrine depending on what you said to him while you were locked up.

Alexios killed her. He pretended that he was sorry and then ran her through with his sword when Kassandra’s guard was down. Then I had dinner alone at home. It was pretty sad.

Is there any way to
kill Deimos but save Myrrine, then? I imagine you'd be alone with your mom at the end, which is a bit sad but not too bad.

There was a moment before he killed her where I could have saved her I think. Right before he gets close enough to kill her you have a dialogue choice to threaten his life or keep trying to spare him.

Do all stat buffs on your weapons always apply, or just the one you're using? For example say I'm using a sword atm, but I also have a spear with poison buff (that's holstered). Will that poison buff from the inactive spear apply while I'm using the sword?

No. Active weapons only.

Depends on the buff. Active weapon effects like fire or poison damage only apply to the one you’re wielding, while stat increases and ability modifiers apply even if the weapon is holstered.

110 hours, level 65 and all 3 main storylines are DONE! What a ride, fantastic fucking game. I still have a like half of the lost tales of Greece to do, and the second DLC pack. I may take a break though and jump into the Spider-Man DLC that I never got around to.

Question for those of you that finished the Cult of Kosmos storyline.
Did you end up letting Aspasia live? and did you romance her? I just couldn't, I had to take her down. But I'm wondering what happens if you let her live and/or romance her?

Ohh also overall all 3 ending thoughts.
there are a shit ton of implications here for the rest of the series. Basically Kassandra is alive for the entire history of the Assassin Order. I mean it seemed to me it was hinted that she was some how involved behind the scenes maybe pushing the order, helping it out in places. I have to wonder if we're going to get a sequel with her. Shit you could have it take place anywhere in the history of the Assassin order. Let her give the spear to Herodotus and take on a regular assassin hidden blade.

Wheeeww either way, really enjoyed this ride, and I really hope they build on these implications.

Fuck no. That woman is a liar (as the cultist clues say), she's manipulative, and she got Phoibe killed. I murdered the shit out of her. :P

I kissed her. I think there was a little more dialogue, and then nothing happens after, she basically just disappears from the game world, same as if you killed her, and it still marks her as "defeated."

Only need to upgrade the ship for the Platin but this will be a drag, I'm constantly running out of wood yet I still have to upgrade 4x which is ~ 7000 wood.
I was tempted to buy a booster but even the best pack only gives 3k wood ._.
