For those who have finished/are playing ac: revelations: did you manage to blow up all of the locked wells? the game says there are 31 total but it does not show in your dna or database. i've managed to find 26 but that map is too dark to figure out which is which.

I havn't done any of this yet, but I'm assuming you bomb the wood on top of the wells..

Yep, basically impact, sticky, or fuse shells and either shrapnel or coal as ingredients.

There isn't an achievement for doing it and it doesn't add to your 100% synchronization of the game.

You blow them up with a sticky/tripwire/impact/fuse bomb with shrapnel or coal in them. Then you can hide in them and get away from guards...

THAT'S ALL THEY'RE THERE FOR!

well i know they can be used for the following:

Hiding from guards & Hiding guards in them... (it takes them 3secs to hit the water)

I didnt think that they would unlock anything

Yep those are their uses. You could also imagine that it helps the populace as they'll be able to get water from them to give yourself some motivation.

It's also quite fun. :P

It is unusually fun but this kind of brings up the question of why they are locked in the first place.

Yep those are their uses. You could also imagine that it helps the populace as they'll be able to get water from them to give yourself some motivation.

The only other time ive found a use for them was whilst running across rooftops with no regard for ezios saftey and leaped of the edge (now when i do that i switch to autopilot and hold the grab ledge button) on the offchance he might catch something and in one case he grabbed a well just before hitting the floor, which saved me a unexpected death


It is unusually fun but this kind of brings up the question of why they are locked in the first place.

well in earlier editions i dont recall them being locked but i know they were present, so i dont really have a clue myself since theres no reward for unlocking them, good point!!!

Ya I'm doing these in my 2nd play through.
I just do like the other poster, I blow them up when I come across them wherever I am in a mission or walking around.

I've been loving blowing the lids off these things when people are nearby.
They all jump & scream, it's hilarious.

I like how Ubi does the civilian reactions & comments.

(& I'm getting very fond of these bombs too - I'm using them more and more and loving it)

I used the map provided in this thread and opened all the wells on there, I also found two more wells myself but somehow the game said I only opened 27 in total. There was also a well on the map I couldn't find, but there was one a few houses further.

I actually just found the last two in the Galata district but apparently I opened them already. So it's just a bug there are 31 wells, but he only counts 27.

I thought maybe putting a bomb next to one of the open wells would perhaps unlock it if this was the glitch, but no such luck. My best guess is that that is the glitch: There are 31 wells, but only 27 of them are covered, so only 27 of them CAN be unlocked. The other 4 already being open, their state cannot be altered.

I have noticed that in my DNA folder, the Additional Memories isn't checked off as a fully white square, despite me having 100% Sync and doing everything in it, so I assume the Wells are a hidden part of it.

It seems bad though, if you can't fully unlock all 31 wells.

I think you're right, I had noticed that too. I hope they patch it, I've completed everything 100% as well, it's bugging the crap out of me that that square isn't white!

Same here. Guess we'll have to wait to find out.

i found another unblocked well, unmarked by either maps.....so that makes at least 32 wells in total....and therefore doesnt make sense for the theory that suggests there is a bug that only recognise 27 out of 31 wells, opened or not

i can't post my image for some reason.....
so i'll explain the location (sorry):

a little north-east, from the top right corner wall of Arsenal district

also, if anyone has the official strategy guide, please post the image of all the well locations

So you were right, I found the well you mentioned. And this is proof that my "31 total wells" theory is false. So I went for a little hunt. I found quite a few more open wells. I might resume my search later, going to bed now but this new map brings the total number of already open wells to 11 and still only 27 covered. So the search for "answers" continues I guess.

i have also been searching have not found any more than erikassassin in Constantinople but thought it was worth mentioning that in MASAF (the old assassin city) during memory sequence 1 there are some wells but all i saw were open but they were the kind that looked as if they had been closed (wooden pieces around edges and a rope) but I couldn't access my bombs during the memories

I've opened an issue on Ubisoft support as well and they stalled me saying that everything I asked was tip/hints related.

I replied to them asking them to stop with the JibJab. Those things looks like bugs to me, and I want to know the explanation.

So please, Black_Widow9, explain to us what the heck is going on that Ubisoft would stall the answer instead of simply explaining it to me. Wouldn't that be much easier?

This is my issue number: 111218-000587, hope you can help with all the answers.

Sorry all 5 additional memories have been completed
Customer By Web Form 12/13/2011 19:53
There is no walkthrough on the 31 wells this is a technical issue because in the DNA strand under additional memory's the box is unchecked or what you would call unfilled yet when you expand the section all 4 additional memory's are complete but the 31 wells are not found anywhere in the DNA strand. I believe that someone forgot about the 31 wells only putting 27 in and forgetting to put the wells in the additional memory's section meaning it can't be filled. So is there going to be a patch to fix this empty box or am I right and what's the reason for the additional memory's box not filled? Is it the wells? and as I showed you on the map there is only 27. Wells that can be opened with a total of 38 11 being open before we enter the city

Hi, SDGRBlaze! No, no wells in cappadocia.

We are waiting Ubisoft's response on the reported issues, but it seems to me that they won't answer nor fix anything.
All previous Assassin's Creed had unsolved issues, so I belive they will do same thing the always do with this one, in other words they'll simply ignore.

Hehe, I'd say I'm obsessive at this point lol. But honestly there's something about the freedom of the open world in AC games that allows me to run around scrutinizing without getting sick of it too quick. In AC1 I did a freakin grid search for those flags! Used photoshop to paint over the maps on my computer to mark where I'd been... That was crazy!

Anyway I'm glad to see Black_Widow9's response. I'd really like to have an answer to what's up with these wells. Even if it's a bug or an omission, just knowing it would be nice.

I don't think they don't care, I would rather jump to the conclusion that they are hard at work on AC3 and such, so a minor glitch or omission isn't high on the priority list. I know all to well how important it is to "ignore" or move along from certain details, lest you get trully obsessed and your productivity isn't going to the right outlet.

Anyway, I should also give credit where it's due, this map I made was originally the one that has the yellow triangles on it. Can't remember who made it, but I changed it to the green spots, because one of the yellow triangles was at the wrong spot. So in the interest of having an accurate map, I modified it accordingly.

Anyway, Merry Christmas to those who celebrate it (and happy holidays to those who don't)! I'm off to slowly digest the ridiculous amounts of food in my belly!

Endeed, they are probably hard at work, so these problems are low to null priority. I took the liberty to say that cause the same thing happened to all previous releases of the game, and I belive that if we (the users) are perfectionists they should also be, but as I said, they won't care. ACR is already a best seller there's no reason to fix this kind of bug. For them it's a waste of time and money, but let's hope I'm wrong.

I feel more and more that the answer might be some technical error from Ubisoft, and that they probably won't correct it.

But, here are some of my questions:
- Has anyone tried to throw sticky bombs at the inner walls (to prevent the bomb from falling into the well water) on EVERY well they have found, to make sure that the wood graphics are not "invisible" on some of the already opened wells? To somehow check if this might trigger a change?
- Developing question based on question 1: Are different bombs being tested on the already opened wells? And perhaps a super-bomb? Super-bomb explanation: plant tripwires all around in very close proximity, and then set off a cherry bomb to make a guard trigger this hilarious grand explosion.
- Has Masyaf, Cappadocia, secret locations and Vlad Tepes' graveyard been checked?
- Perhaps something will trigger the wells to appear? Like performing events such as street brawl with that cocky dude, or carrying boxes for the lazy trader? I know this point is a little bit diffuse, but perhaps throwing people into already opened wells etc will help? And maybe opening those infinite chests (filled with bomb ingredients) have to be opened at least once to trigger a change?
- As far as I recall you cannot use bombs in Alta´r missions, but perhaps interacting with wells will do something, like hitting them with all your weapons, throwing citizens at the wells, or tearing down nearby market stands or construction pillars in case they fall on top and open nearby Masyaf wells? Perhaps there are chests hidden somewhere in either secret locations, Vlad Tepes graveyard, or Masyaf in Ezio-time that contain a few bombs that you can obtain and use to open wells? And what about using the Apple when in Masyaf, seeing it has quite a lethal force to unleash on the targets, so maybe it will open closed wells in Masyaf that you THOUGHT you couldn't take out because you did not have any bombs? [SPOILER, dont read if you have not finished the story] And what about the Old Ezio visiting Masyaf once again at the end of the game. Perhaps he may find wells in Masyaf to quench his thirst for knowledge (lol, what a cheezy statement, I must agree).
- What about replaying earlier missions, perhaps the now-present (bad English, lol) wells are not opened, but closed at an early stage and ready to be opened?
- Maybe everything in the game needs 100 % completion to trigger a change for the well-situation? I am a perfectionist too, and I have 100 % on everything, even the Mediterranean missions, with five lvl 10 Assassins in every city. And perhaps the "Provide Water"-mission in this Mediterranean is a way to open wells in other countries or contributing in opening wells in Constantinople? What about sending a Master Assassin around in these countries and letting him doing the "Provide water"-mission? Or maybe send five Master Assassins, since five is the maximum number of Assassins being able to participate in one mission?
- What about one of the last missions [SPOILER/*****-ALERT, DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT COMPLETED THE STORY, OK?] where you chase the new Templar Grand Master with your parachute-skills with Sofia? I noticed you can control how high or low you want Ezio to fly, by moving your controller vertically. If you lower him to the lowest point possible without touching the ground, and then doing that diving attack, perhaps he will rip wood off wells in these small Ottoman/Turkish villages?


Ok, this ended up being very long. But it will facilitate as a check-list if anyone wants to do that. I can say that I need a weekend-day (Friday afternoon, Saturday or Sunday) to do all these things. And if anyone wants to try all of these out, make sure we do it on PS3, Xbox, and PC to check if there is any difference. Yep, I sound nerdy, but being a perfectionist is about being perfect. You can't miss anything.

Possible soloutions:
- Waiting for a Singleplayer DLC (the probability of this is high, as they occurred in AC2 and ACB) and hoping Ubisoft will go UbiHard on bugs and such.
- Keep doing obscure tests (this is actually called science in real life, hehe) to see if it can do any change
- Monitor the internet for soloutions - they frequently occur when people get frustrated, and SOMEBODY will come up with a conclusion some time
- Buy a strategy-guide and hope that they included a walkthrough on this matter.
- Do what I hate most when coming to these things: giving - haha, wrong. Don't give up.

I feel more and more that the answer might be some technical error from Ubisoft, and that they probably won't correct it.

But, here are some of my questions:
BLA BLA BLA.

Well, the best thing to do is to wait Ubisoft's reply. They could simply answer and finish with this mistery, but no, let's do what we've always do, let's ignore everyone.

I think the problem is that there was initially supposed to be another explorable area in the north west part of Constantinopole.
Right below the logo in this map; i think that area is the one from the final mission in Constantinopole with the small villages and countryside (could be mistaking though). My guess is that this whole area was supposed to be explorable and that the final wells are there.

Wells shouldnt have been locked in the first place, they should already be available as hiding places, I think ubisoft thought it would be a good idea to get some bomb practice available for us but the controls arent hard, wells should have been open in the first place

Yeah, i don't know why they though it would be a good idea, but i'm very curious if there is a reward (or supposed to be considering it's glitched) for opening them all.

I think it is quite likely they wanted to tie it to some kind of (side-)story-related event that got cut.

Could be possible, but unfortunately it's doubtful we will get an official answer. They didn't answer our questions about the mysterious keys from AC2 or about the hidden weapons rack from ACB.

I think hunting wells is a waste of time. It's propably something they wanted to implement, but droped it in a process.
The same situation was with dummy keys in ACII. Look here:

So don't get angry about it guys:) This kind of things happens all the time in gaming world.

Yeah im just over it by now... every single AC game has had at least one thing left incomplete, and ubi is well aware of every issue and refused to correct them

AC 1: No trophy patch on PS3 version, and no subtitles despite them being required by ESRB and PEGI

AC 2: Incomplete memory replay feature, Broken access to templar lairs, No dlc trophies, also the weapons from Bloodlines were never patched in after the psp/psv connectivity feature was disabled

Brotherhood: Missing database entry never corrected, Lagging while saving bug never corrected, issues with project legacy connectivity

Revelations: bomb challenge bugs never fixed, Missing wells never added, Multiplayer level progress and abilities from ACB not carried over as promised before release

not to mention that every AC2 based game has had some issue with its DNA folder not properly showing which memories are completed, issues with music tracks not changing properly... and a bunch of other bugs i forget offhand

Also, A bug with AC 3 has already been reported to us by its own developers: it has multiplayer

I think Dangerzone was trying to get the point across that the MP itself is a bug, and considering it doesn't even work right in ACB and ACR, he's not far off (PC players can't even acess multiplayer most of the time, well, I can't.)

the only ACR glitch i've found that really pisses me off, is the Single Player Mercenary Kill Streak challenge thing is not being counted. that's the only real major glitch i've had, i just didn't bother saying anything about it when i first noticed it because i knew that, at that time, it wouldn't get patched, they were too busy trying to fix a shoddy MP.

Also, i don't think my Uplay achievement for using theives to loot 50 guards has been counted either.

And Here's a HUGE glitch they haven't fixed that many gamers have experienced...

I had completed the game, only 1 memory left to get 100% sync on, downloaded the TLA and it corrupted both my saves! Now when I load my save it shows Ezio for a few seconds then locks up with a white screen of death!

I seriously don't want to play through the entire game again just to get that cheevo, but UBI doesn't seem interested in fixing it.

If they won't fix such a major glitch, what makes us think they'll fix a simple "27 of 31 well" glitch.....

I thought maybe putting a bomb next to one of the open wells would perhaps unlock it if this was the glitch, but no such luck. My best guess is that that is the glitch: There are 31 wells, but only 27 of them are covered, so only 27 of them CAN be unlocked. The other 4 already being open, their state cannot be altered.

Those two in the Galata district start off opened. Does no one do any research before posting?

...really? You're not just happy that they have DLC? Remember the NES, or the SNES, or the N64, or the Gamecube, or the Sega systems, or the Playstation and PS2, or the first Xbox? None of them had DLC. You finished the game, and that was it. What is it that makes you feel so entitled?

People feel "entitled" because they've paid for a game, whose developers should strive to fix any bugs that appear and make the gameplay, even locked wells of all things, a seamless experience. It shouldn't be left for die the moment that the last additional content is nudged out of the door.

Okay guys, I can't map this out for you, but I'm a completionist *****, I have 100%ed all previous Assassins' Creed games and DLC (except for the DaVinci Disappearance which plan on getting soon), despite the fact that AC1 had no trophies (did it on 360 as well, lol). I've been playing ACR for about 4 days now (it's my cousin's friend, so at the latest, I have until the end of summer)I have gotten all data pieces and treasures possible and have unlocked a few Wells, as well as completed all Master Assassin Missions and Challenge Missions and side missions and I'm on Memory Sequence 2, and also plan on seating Master Assassins in every Mediterranean City..
I read on a Gamefaqs thread that a guy has found 30 so far, so if confirmed, this would prove that:
1. People are looking for these things based upon the Map and not actually physically walking around.
2. It MAY not be a bug.
Have you guys physicalled walked everywhere looking for these?
In any case, I plan on doing this after following the map and hopefully get some good results. Most likely I'll do this AFTER beating the game, lol
Good luck guys, lets see if we can finish what we started.

Welcome to the forums!
Interesting, as you can't actually do all the challenges, etc. until Sequence 3. Probably a misstatement on your part as to where you are in the game, maybe sequence 3 memory 2?

I have traversed the map side to side and top to bottom, only found 27 covered wells, I wish you better luck. It is entirely possible I missed some!

Post the link for us to the gamefaq thread you mentioned, I'd like to check it out...

Hey, I know it might be time to give up, but has anyone confirmed the finding of the last 4 wells?

It's so annoying having to say, 'I'm at 100% completion... EXCEPT for these wells.'

My theory is the additional memories box won't fill in white until all the wells are discovered.
