View Full Version : Templar Tax Collector

11-18-2011, 04:17 PM
Does anyone know of the best area and sequence to find the Templar Tax Collector? I need to know so I can get my last story mode trophy.

Seems to be pretty random. I have no clue what triggers him but I always run into him after just walking around checking stuff out for awhile.

Ive been walking around for hours and cant find this guy. I have everything done but the treasures and this tax evasion trophy. I dont want to start MP until I get all the story mode stuff done. I might just have to give up. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/disagree.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

I just stood in one area for a few moments and he popped up. I didn't even know it was him.

I tried for over 5 hours on sequence 4, 5 and the end. I was finishing up the guild challenges and just standing around sometimes hoping he would pop up but he never did. I gave up and started MP.

I noticed him a few times during the game, not realizing that there was an achievement for killing him. I didn't even know he was a tax collector. I thought he was a thief or a courier. Once he surprised me by popping up literally inches from my face while I was running along the rooftops. Instinctively http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif, I assassinated him with my hidden blade and the achievement unlocked to my surprise/delight. My only advice is to stick mainly on the rooftops. It's a lot easier to spot him up there than on the crowded streets.

Thank you Dreamer. Ive been hangin around markets and such figurin he would show up but I still havent seen him. My son started his own game and finished it and he never saw the tax collector once. Crazy

They appear to show up at random, but they are very rare compared to the Borgia couriors from AC2 and ACB. I am currently in sequence 7 and have only seen about a half dozen to this point.

Okay, I finally got it! Heres what I did...I started a new file and flew through the story. When I got to sequence 4 and after the memory where Ezio dresses up as a minstrel, I left the palace grounds and stuck to the roofs and I finally got the tax collector on the southeast side of the Hagia Sofia while I was headed toward the arsenal. Hope that helps whoever is looking to get that trophy out of the way.

Yeah I want to get that Platinum so I can move on to my other games http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

What is the achievement you get for doing this? Cause I think I have a tax collector achievement completed but for some reason I have no idea how I got it.

The trophy you get on the PS3 is the Tax Evasion trophy. Because it was the last trophy I needed, I also got the Conqueror trophy when I got the Tax Evasion trophy.

What I did was:
Camp out near a bank (be far enough for the bank to be on the edge of the mini-map) and wait to get a Revenue Deposit.

Once you see the pop up "You received a revenue of $$$$ Akce", start running around in circles for maybe a min (or more depends) and eventually a courrier will spawn (DO NOT PICK UP $$ FROM THE BANK). So i gave him serious hell and got my Tax Evade trophy and platinum http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I just got this this morning... God I hate the Tax Collector. Ubisoft need to make them appear way more often.

I got it by camping near a bank, seriously for like about 80 minutes.

I don't like that stupid NPC.

Hey I had trouble finding the tax collector...however ..wenever I was in the arsenal destrict inside the walls I saw him once but I was to far from the exit n he got away.. second time again same place I saw him again but I got him.. u have to put ur eyes on that radar otherwise u will miss it stay close to the exit cause I don't know if there's a way to climb the walls..sorry I can't give u a time but I read they normaly show up after u get money deposit in the bank..then again it's a matter of luck :) hope this helps

This is the only one i'm still stuck on. I can never see the guy, i've waited near a bank for ages and nothing, run around for hours and nothing. This guy is really beginning to annoy me!!

05-18-2012, 12:17 PM
Hope this helps: during my playthrough, tax collectors only appeared in districts under templar influence

If I recall correctly there is a small bank near Aghia Sophia, and this is where I literally stumped on that guy. It was pure luck: Ezio was being hunted by some guards, the guy appeared out of the thin air, got assassinated and then Ezio took up the roofs. Accidentally lucky, that's all I am to say.
