PC version look significantly better than xbox x?Whilst enjoyed my time with it, AC O felt ..... hallow. It tried to be Witcher 3, Assassins Creed, and to an extent, BotW.
I did almost everything worth doing in the main game, completed the first blade DLC (fuck off Nakatas) and im struggling through the third DLC with Poesiden.
In 4k HDR 60fps its a sight to behold, next gen looking at times, but it became a chore near the end.
Talk to NPC, ask them three questions, leave, go to fort, base, etc, retrieve and/or kill, go back to quest giver, get reward.
The mediocre writing doesnt help at all. Found myself just skipping dialouge at times. Something I never ever do on a blind playthrough.
So yeah, something was missing, and the best word to describe my experience was hallow.
Major spoiler, believe its the start of the third Atlantis DLC.
Also whoever wrote the scene where Layla kills her best friend and basically forgets about her within 2 mins should hang their head. Awful stuff.
Note. The saying "hang your head" is another way of saying someone should be ashamed/embarrased. Just an fyi.
You should be fine with the spear level. I think it's mostly a bonus for finishing off the Cult, which is its own separate main quest line. Did you unlock the second set of Warrior skills, so you can press LB + dpad down to switch to a new set of 4 abilities? IIRC the level cap in the base game was 50 so you're close to that.Really enjoying the game still. I'm at level 44 or 45 and have about 65% of the main story finished I think. I guess I let my spear upgrade lag behind as I'm stuck with 5-6 ability points and no where really to put them so I'm just saving them for now. I'm full assassin with 4 hunter skills and heals from the warrior branch. Should I be just going through the cultist thread to get my fragments before I continue along? Am I going to hit some sort of damage limit that makes progress impossible or can you finish the game on spear level 4?
I've unlocked the 2nd bar of melee skills and I actually thought the lvl cap was much higher so I guess I'm a lot closer than I thought, thanks.You should be fine with the spear level.

The level cap is much higher now. 100 I think. It was 50 at launch. I too ran out of abilities to assign long ago, and I'm currently sitting on about 57 unused skill points. I should see what's good for the master level stuff.
Yes, the mastery levels are where you really start to define your character. They can be absurdly powerful.
Amazing. I think I'm at 165 hours now, at the end of Chapter 2 in Atlantis, level 89 iirc, and they just came out with that new Lost Tales and now Discovery coming too. What a game!
Coincidentally, I was just wrapping that up yesterday. Try this. For me it was Typhons Revenge in Melos, there are two little rock islands to the east, and once I walked on the SE one that was it.Somewhere on this giant map I have missed some slip of land and cannot get the Platinum Trophy. This is beyond frustrating. I keep looking for tiny specs of land throughout the ocean(s) as I cannot think where else I could have missed something. What a pain.
Other than this, I really like this game.
You have to zoom way in on the map and comb over everything. Look for regions that are still plain textures instead of the more varied ones of areas you've been to. It's a bit hard to tell the difference especially around the mountainous regions of the big South-West continent.Somewhere on this giant map I have missed some slip of land and cannot get the Platinum Trophy.

I had a bit of trouble back when I was wrapping up the plat, and it turned out I missed a good five or six regions on the map, none of which were the tiny islands.
My favorite scene in the game at the start of Ep 2 Atlantis, if you're playing as Kassandra (she delivers the line better).Finished episode 1 of the Atlantis DLC. Overall enjoyed it, though I felt some story missions (like having to weaken each sub-region) felt a bit tedious, and threw off the pacing of the story for me while I was forced to finish that up before I could do the final mission. Felt like they were trying to pad out the length of the episode a bit, which just seems unnecessary to me (especially in a game that's already pushing past the 100 hour mark).
Anyways, on to Episode 2. Like how it started off with a bang, so hoping I'll enjoy it.
Haha loved that line as well and loved his reaction to Kassandra during that whole conversation. Overall really liking the new locations we get to go to in this DLC, and feels like a welcome change of pace from Odyssey’s world in the base game.My favorite scene in the game at the start of Ep 2 Atlantis, if you're playing as Kassandra (she delivers the line better).
"...so find another dog."
"YOU find another dog!"
Video here. Spoilers if you watch much of the video.
I read that Discovery mode came out yesterday, another free update.
You looked through the comments at that TA guide and still no luck? You have to walk on those various little islands mentioned.None of those suggestions for completing Hermie's Homie worked for me. I do appreciate the assistance. This is a giant pain in the ass.
Just started the Atlantis DLC yesterday. I tried the day before but I could not find it - even went to Google and YouTube for hints on how to start the Fate of Atlantis DLC. Turns out I missed step 1) download the DLC ... feeling pretty stupid right now. :) .
The next two episodes don't have that. Also "reduce" means "eliminate".So I'm playing the first episode of the Atlantis DLC now, and while it's fun, I gotta say I don't remember the "reduce Character X's control over Region Y" objectives in the main game requiring you to fulfill every single side objective and kill every hostile like the Persephone stuff here seemingly does. Do the next two episodes do this too?
Is that the one where you help her out with her son and work around her farm?
This may have been mentioned in the other guides posted, but I used this guide with included pictures of the often missed places and finally got the Achievement after going to those places. Last one for me was the Volcanic Island pictured in the guide. For some reason it wasn't enough to just land on the island, I had to go to nearly the center of the island before it finally recognized it.
Well you don't necessarily have to do every single side objective. I wound up clearing each region without finishing all the marked locations. Items like Torch of Hypnos, Provisions, Leaders, Nation treasure chests, Maiden Statues are worth prioritizing, but I found killing the Colossi also helped a lot (especially since each Maiden statue has 2 of them). I like to play stealthily so I was initially avoiding them, but they're worth trying to take down, along with the decent loot they give out.So I'm playing the first episode of the Atlantis DLC now, and while it's fun, I gotta say I don't remember the "reduce Character X's control over Region Y" objectives in the main game requiring you to fulfill every single side objective and kill every hostile like the Persephone stuff here seemingly does.

This is an incredibly pure post.Wow, hold on now. Natakas is one hell of a cutie-pie and I stand by my words. Then again, I've never been attracted to guys fitting the basic beauty standard of hyper-masculinity, so Sorbo & Evans would probably do nothing for me here. It's nice that Natakas doesn't fit it as well. He has value and worth as a random normal guy, looking normal, being normal, and not like an unrealistic Apollo. And it's great. Kassandra is clearly the strongest in that relationship, she's the one protecting him and his dreamy eyes, and I relate to that (Lykaon still best male relationship interest though, no doubts).
That been said, Legacy of the First Blade is still majorly tedious and problematic on many accounts. But give Natakas some slack!
