View Full Version : Removing Enmity

I'm sure I will be laughed at for this, especially when I mention beforehand that I have played all three previously existing console AC games, even getting the platinum trophy for II.

In Revelations however, I cannot for the life of me, figure out how to remove enmity. I'm early in the game first off (at about 10% sync) and out of nowhere my enmity/aggro meter keeps rising, seemingly at random. Now it has suddenly jumped to full and I cannot find a way to remove this. No posters to tear down or targets to assassinate exist. There are Heralds, but they only decrease this enmity 25% and there are not enough to remove it fully in my game.

Officially it's called notoriety. When you're meter is full you will need to kill Officials to lower it by 50% at a time.

No, it's not. Officially it's called Templar Awareness. Notoriety doesn't even really exist anymore.

Anyway, on topic, yeah, notoriety has been replaced by Templar awareness. And posters have been removed. What I do is, I just run around hoping that I'll get lucky and run into an official to kill. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

True. I usually just freeroam for a bit and check the map regularly if Templar Awareness is high.

Killing the officials is a joke though. I killed one but he was escorted by two guards. Killing them gained me 25% of my awareness meter back. So I guess what the game wants is for the player to kill 3 officials and then bribe a herald?

o.O
You got 25% Templar Awareness from killing 2 guys?

You don't have to kill them btw. You can just run. That way Templar Awareness doesn't increase.

To whoever,
Hazel actually isn't a Noob - they said they've played the previous 3 games & even got a trophy for ACII, he/she is simply not understanding the Awareness system in ACR.

I admit I didn't understand what he/she meant till I kept reading ...
Anyways, to the OP,

What I did after my awareness/notoriety/enmity turned pure red, I walked around in busy streets waiting for the "Official" signal - a big white square that notified me that an Official was nearby, then took the 2 guards out behind him first w/ my hidden blades & then the Official.
OR you can call in your Assassins to do it for you - however you kill them.
You have to do it twice tho. So after you get 1 official, hurry & walk around in another populated area for another Official to pop up for you. If one doesn't show up, seek out Heralds.

Sometimes you have to do a combo when 2 officials don't show up. Kill 1 official & run & find a Herald or 2 & bribe them - either way you have to do it 2 times, once doesn't remove the red.

The increments of decrease seem to be that a Herald lowers your awareness 25% & an Official lowers it 50%. So you do the math. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I enjoyed this part of it - Officials were fun targets.

Oh & thanks Lightrey, I never thought about pickpocketing them when I was done! That could of come in handy earlier on when I was broke.

No, when I kill 2 Officials, the awareness goes back to zero.
Herald's drop it 25%, Officials, 50%. (at least that's what I read on my awareness meter after I kill one).

I have to kill 2 Officials or a combo - 1 Official & 2 herald bribes . .
One time, no officials showed up, I had to run around searching for heralds.
Since I totally suck at den defense, I scramble to lower that immediately lol

I like it, it adds an element of consequence to the game. No game should be all smooth & easy without any limitations or set backs.

Are you trying to suggest that I'm sad enough to get my kicks out of confusing cyber people and that I'm a liar as well? - I must admit to feeling rather insulted. I don't see how it can be taken any other way in reference to my post previous to that.

I'm worried about posting anything now incase somebody else reports me.

I just ignore it. it is easy to lock all your dens with master assassins or just let them attack the den until you need it.

Well if you want to avoid Den Defense, you'll need to deal with that issue pretty quickly.
It takes quite a bit of time to get 5 more MA's, level them up to 15 plus do 2 missions with each to get the den locked.

If you want constant Den defending, then I agree with you, let it stay red.

Killing officials and bribing heralds aren't the only ways to get ready of notoriety/Templar Awareness.

I just remembered from a post I made on a similar thread, that you can also kill stalkers to lower it by 25%.

ProdiGurl
12-09-2011, 11:18 AM
I didn't know that. Too bad not enough of them show up when you need it lowered.

In my 2nd play-through, it seemed like as soon as it turned red I got another den contested.

How much does awareness increase by when you renervate/buy a building? Is it 15% or 20%?

You can decrease your Templar Awareness meter by bribing heralds which they take down 25%, or you can kill officials who decrease it by 50%! If you get grabbed and you kill a stalker they will decrease Templar Awareness 50% as well. In Cappadocia, Templar Awareness cannot be removed with anything there, but your Templar Awareness will slowly deplete as long as you do not go into conflict and start killing!

The thing is that I think it was supposed to encourage people not to go on killing sprees, but I'd say Templar Awareness and the Janissaries did a much better job at that.

Why encourage people to play a certain way though when the point of AC is to play however you want to play. You and I both acknowledge that these are not meant to be stealth games. Although I will say I thought it was an awesome idea to leave the upper janissary section of the city at all times red. That was brilliant because it gives you the option to sneak in if you want. Also I like going on killing sprees. I enjoy aggressive playing. I'm not patient enough to be stealthy all the time.

I know, but in ACII and ACB the favor seemed to be for going on killing sprees. It was so easy to just kill people that killing guards that got in your way was basically the easiest and fastest (and therefore usually the most preferred) choice. This system balances things out a little. You actually have to make a (relatively) hard choice whether to stop and fight, or throw a smoke bomb and run.

Ya I liked the ease of the earlier Notoriety System w/ the Posters, but I have to admit, that got tedious over time having to tear them down everywhere.

One other thing I notice is that in ACR, even when it's full red, the guards don't immediately go after you. I kinda like that.

Hi all,
I have a question in relation to Cappadocia - how long does it take for Templar Awareness to deplete ? I have 100% Templar Awareness and I can't get it to deplete. I have tried leaving Ezio standing somewhere quiet (even at the viewpoint high up) for ages and there is no change. I also tried returning to Constaninople, reducing all & any Templar Awareness before returning to Cappadocia only to find my TA there hasn't changed. Again left Ezio hanging around not causing mischief but no depletion - if you are maxed out on TA is it like that forever or have I come across a glitch ?

Sorry OriginalMiles - thought the point of a thread was to ask questions & the previous comments didn't really answer that - I also did a google search for a few days, and kept getting this thread, so they take partial responsibilty for my comment... I don't actually do the whole thread typing thing but as my questions were not answered online I came to the nearest search result (infact this is the most I have ever done in my life!)

TIP: You can bribe the same herald over and over again.
Just walk away till the same symbol of the herald appears again on your map and walk back to bribe him again, you can do this as many times as you want :).
I think the templar awareness or notoriety system (or however you wanna call it) was very poorly done in ACR.
