View Full Version : Acrobat/Jester attacking me?

I just noticed recently an acrobat/jester in purple clothes (like the one from the multiplayer option) keeps attacking me on sight as I leave the brothel to go towards the water. He tends to be around the dock area standing on his hands and then sees me and attacks.

What's all that about? Is there a mission for this that I haven't had yet?

They were added with the Da Vinci Disappearance, there are 5 of them scattered around Rome and if you beat all of them up you'll get an achievement. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You said it well "BEAT", NOT KILL

If you kill them it doesn't count. Most of them are found near water. Normally just run to them quickly and attack to beat them down in one hit. If you get into a fight, don't forget to use hands only, and run towards safe areas without water or guards to prevent them from dying.
If they happen to die, just get back to the area after a while, they should have respawned.

Thanks for the replies - I had noticed they appeared only after The da Vinci Disappearance so I had wondered if it was even meant to be part of that storyline.

I noticed it was called "The Harlequin" after beating him up successfully. I haven't even seen the other four :/ I wouldn't know where to start looking.

Gamesradar's Mikel Reparaz helped me collect the feathers in ACII and he has made lots of guides for ACB collectibles.

The harlequin's appear after you activate Da Vinci dlc, but personally I meant them before actually playing the Da Vinci memories, so I don't think they are part of a greater storyline.
Maybe Ezio killed/locked up Cahin so his apprentice harlequin's are after him for that, lol

Just come back to the spot where you saw the harlequin, he should be back. Also beware of water, because they die if they fall in water then you'll have to come back later to beat them

you can still get it
i killed one or two and they respawned
they'll only stop respawning once you beat them not kill them

Are you sure they respawn? Cause in my first game, i had 4/5, and i couldn't find the one at the rosa in fiore. i have started a new game now, and i again got 4/5, but the one under the bridge near isola tiberina fell into the water. i have checked on lots of occasions, he doesn't respawn
