I played the last DLC with the option of Kass oiled up and not wearing armor/clothes - it was amusing.
But I went back to the amazon looking armor/outfit, because it was just too weird.

Quick question - I'm not that far into the game (seeing the Oracle) and I keep coming across enemies where my 'take shield away' ability won't work against.

Am I doing anything wrong? Am I supposed to be able to tell who's shield I can rip off and who I can't?

Thanks :)

You probably need to upgrade the ability so you can also destroy big shields.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey was my game of the year last year. I spent over a hundred hours in it and I loved it.

Here I am an hour and a half into the last episode of the First Blade DLC and I just turned off the game because I don't care. I just don't care. Maybe I'll burn through it when Atlantis drops, or when more of the free quest updates drop, but right now I don't care.

The gap in quality between the main game and First Blade is astounding. It's not even the forced romance to the whiny-ass cardboard cutout (I hear Alexios' companion is better(?), but Kassandra's is TERRIBLE). It's not even the removal of your freedom of choice to tell your character's story. It's not even the problematic aspects of the story they're forcing on you.

First Blade has nothing to offer. There's no new areas, very few new assets, and one of the blandest stories with the blandest characters in a game BRIMMING with amazing quests and people. I get through a grueling hour-long intro to this episode complete with one of the biggest bullshit fights imaginable only to be told I need to clear three forts I already cleared back in the base game. And I just don't care.

That's all this DLC is. It's replaying the base game. It's replaying stuff I've already done. Maybe if the story grabbed me at all the lack of new material wouldn't matter--certainly, I've enjoyed all of the Lost Tales so far. But right now I just don't care.

God, I hope to hell Atlantis is better than this, because First Blade has actually hurt my feelings on Odyssey as a whole.

Yeah, while Odyssey's base game is arguably better than Origins, Origins DLC, both of them, shit all over Odyssey's DLC. At least this first one. We'll see what they do next.

They have teased that with there being no AC game in 2019, that we'll be getting more Odyssey DLC beyond Atlantis.
I just hope they don't fall back on the excuse of the base game's world being so huge as to not offer new areas.

So I finally got around to finishing act 3 of the hidden blade. I gotta say this DLC was pretty much a disapointment. It was more of the same for the most part, which wasn't necessarily bad. Just not what I expected. Origins two DLC had new areas, a great story and new likable characters. Hell it even had some new gear and horses to ride.

So far Hidden Blade is basically a new side quest. No new areas, the same enemies (for the most part), and Darius and his son/daughter are not the best in terms of characters. None of it is bad, but it's a very bland 7/10 in a game I thought was a 9/10 previously.

Atlantis better be on par with Curse of the Pharohs in terms of amazing new content or I'll have to pass on the next games DLC.

I knew from the start the first expansion was going to be disappointing, that's why I never bought the season pass even though I'm very interested in AC3 and the second one.

Without a new area it just literally feels like it's more of the same when the base game already had way too much content already. I really hope they go all out with Atlantis and do something great.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Hidden Blades is bad. If you liked the structure of the base game then you will probably enjoy Hidden Blades as well (minus the shitty forced choices). It's just nothing new and exciting and I expected more after Origins had some of the best DLC ever made for a game.

So I've only just finished Chapter 5 and I'm already at Level 50. I feel that I've already progressed too fast (which is perhaps my fault as I did buy the XP boost and went through a whole bunch of side quests) because finishing the Odyssey and Cultist storylines now is just going to be a matter of going through the motions.

The dangers of the open-world game. To be fair, randomly stumbling upon what you did is probably incredibly unlikely.
Don't know if you already finished the main line and the cultist plot, but here's what I found:

At the bottom of the sea I have found a "ship crew item". Particularly Cultists of Kosmos crew, in its description it says that after Kleon's death, many cultists have went to the sea and were available for hire

It's especially baffling that next to the chest where this item was, there was a chest you needed to open to get the location of a minor cultist. I would love this not to be true, but I pretty much made my peace with it already

That's exactly the point though. The base game already has an absurd amount of content so paying money for largely more of the same isn't very enticing.

Oh yeah, I had it all done a couple days after Episode 3 was out, so I can't be spoiled. I already found all the clues, though it was kind of a pain finding them in this last chapter.

Everything levels with you so don't worry you can't really "out level" the story missions. You can't out level anything, and you can level all the way up to level 99 if you want, so have fun bro!

For those of you who have finished The Legacy of the First Blade DLC.


What did you think of the ending? I mean I kind of saw it coming but it was still really cool to see the descendants of Kassandra flash by on the screen until Aya appeared. Makes room for some pretty interesting story. What happened in the 400 years between Kassandra and Aya? How did Cleopatra end up with Darius' hidden blade? So much good shit to explore.

I just came across this by accident as well lol. There was a clue to one of the cultists but there was no mention of the person you brought up I’m pretty sure...? Must have missed it until I read your post lol 😓

So did my post spoil you or the item? :( There are two chests there, one has the clue, the other one has an item which's description spoils the story

I think what I write below is safe for everyone and serves as a warning:

For clarification to everyone else: there is a chance you might get a Cult of Kosmos ship crew way earlier than before you wipe them all off. Do not read the ship crew description as it gives away who their main leader is.

While that ship crew does spoil a cult member, it doesn’t spoil the leader.
