There is no explanation of how this ability works, in the game. Is it just a special name for when u dodge after ur guard has been broken, or is it something else, like avoid falling when loosing balance for some reason? I tried a bunch of things, but can't seem to find out what this is about. I apreciate any help!

When you get knocked down while climbing you can press B (or O on the PS) and save yourself from falling.

It means if you run into to someone, instead of falling you do a roll and stand up again. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Well, now you do. And that ability is gained when recieving the boots.
And the ability Zmey is talking about is gained when recieving the gloves. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/typing.gif

i think it also makes it easier to not fall of of ledges you are facing... like when you throw a guard off a roof instead of following him over the edge, you will see altair stop himself from falling

no, grabbing back onto a ledge is from the gloves you get

and running into someone and falling over and rolling, you do that from the beginning of the game, you dont earn it

regain balance is just.. i dunno

actually, before Regain Balance, you fall over and have to pick urself up

after getting it, you do a roll and get up a lot faster

Instead you do a roll on the ground and are at your feet faster than you can lock this thread.

Alot faster since the thread isn't locked yet.

Have you noticed that you can choose which direction you want to roll to when you fall into a roll?

Yup, in fact, you don't have to fall when thrown or pushed before you get the boots.

If you move the analogue stick in a certain way, you can do the roll.

Sad thing is that it seems pretty random, I'm guessing something to do with momentum, the boots make is much easier, especially for the lazy...

Guess who?

Thx.

I thought that pressing the feet button would allow u to roll before getting the boots, but as a friend said, it must be just the directional stick. But does the ability makes it easier? Like, u don't need to go stumbing so far or u can change direction better? I'll see if I can check that.

I've tested it. After you lose your abilities, you stumble, roll, and have to pick yourself back up. After you regain your "regain balance" ability, you stumble, roll, and keep running. You no longer have to pick yourself up of the ground and it saves time recovering so you can escape easier.
