After finishing Assassin's Creed III, I wanted to get Altair's outfit so that I could play a few missions in the Master's robes. So after FINALLY completing all the missions, 100% synced, (which was very, very stressful in some missions) I was pumped to put on the Master Assassin's robes and have some fun.
But for what it's worth, I must say that Altair's roes are terrible in this installment of the game, it looks nothing like the original set because of how all the accessories shine very brightly, there is also the bottom half of the robes that makes it different to the other outfits, different in a bad way. It looks like the tunic part of the robes are glued to Ratohnhake:ton's legs because they do not simply hang limp like the assassin outfit, but stay stuck to what every position his legs are in, whereas every other outfit is like a real set of clothing, hanging limp when still and moving accordingly to the way you would run.
In summary, it is like Ubisoft weren't bothered enough to put a good job into such a big part of the game bu instead just too the same robes from Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines and were confident they would suffice.
What do other people think? Do you agree or are you happy with the robes after putting so much work into getting full sync for all the missions? I know I found a lot of difficulty with many missions and for how Altair's robes turned out, don't seem worth the effort.

Well considering the pictures I saw of it with the back of the right arm gauntlet having 2 see through holes in it, and the fact that his robe is stapled to his legs yes I am upset by this. I am also beyond upset by the fact that the pre order Captain of the Aquilla outfit isn't the one Conor wears on the ship. Furthermore no extra outfits in the Manor display his quiver for no reason what so ever. Topped off by the fact that even the DYES don't show up cutscenes, you could say overall I'm unhappy with how the outfits in this game turned out.

The reason there are no quivers on the other outfits is because the assassin outfit is actually programmed with the quiver as part of the outfit, whereas the other outfits don't have one because they weren't made with the quiver as part of the outfit. But I wish you could choose whether you could wear the bow or not because you look ridiculous with only a bow on your back with no arrows to shoot.

It looks terrible. It's like they forgot they updated the physics engine since AC1.

Fortunately, I'm happy enough walking down the basement and seeing the legendary Altair's outfit, AND the legendary Ezio's outfit.

Pretty badass having both of those on display.

Gettin a lil tired Of this assumption, the quiver is NOT part of the Orig Assassin outfit, when you start the game, first loadscreen, you see the outfit, with his regular hair, and no weapons, no quiver, and one holster. It is a separate piece.

Also in sequence 4-5, your native Outfit has a quiver, the one you get for feathers (THE EXACRLT SAME MODEL) does not.

The quiver is a piece all by itself.

I made a thread regarding this as well. It's a shame. It looks like Connor ordered a cheap Altair outfit from ebay.

Its as if the leather pieces of Altair are made of Snakeskin now - NOT Leather . WHO MADE OR APPROVED THIS outfit ??

& Please could we at least get Altair's proper Weapon set for the trouble it takes achieving the Outfit in the first place ?? .... Sword , Crossbow , Cool Dagger (missing on his back)
(only revelations has ever given us the full Altair wardrobe so far )

I dunno why the back of the robes are literally GLUED to Ratohnhake:ton's legs. It just looks wierd.

I hate Altair's outfit in this game. I just don't understand why they couldn't do the same as with Revelations Altair. No gloves, No knife (you would think after 3 games of it being an outfit it would be static). Coattails stapled to Connor's legs and worst yet it was gained after getting 100% sync. Even in story context it wouldn't make sense as a skin only unlocking after 100% sync. Ac2 memory core, AcB memory core, Altair's memories and the memory core. And thusly this is still in Connor's basement so he owned Altair's outfit or an attempted copy. It makes sense as Connor wouldn't really know what it looked like but still it is refereed as Altair's so shouldn't it be exact?

I wish they would have at least given a narrative reason as to why he has Altair's and Ezio's outfits in the first place. It's just there. No reason as to how or why.

Yeah, just seems like Achilles had them and never seemed to want to give them to Ratohnhake:ton.

If the quiver were a separate piece to the outfit, it would move around slightly whenever Ratonahake:ton moves.

Have you ever noticed in other games when a character is holding a temporary item, it moves around a little because the creators are trying to bake it look like the character really is wearing that item. they will actually move the item over the character's body part (wherever this temporary item might be) to make it look as real as possible.

You can see it when Charles Lee is first initiated as a Templar and he puts his ring on, it moves around a little because it is only a temporary time in the cinematic.

This is for the replier as of my post at to why the is only a quiver on the assassin's outfit and no others.

I hated it at first. But all you have to do is get the best sword in the game, go to a city, and fight a crap ton of guards. It really feels like you're playing as Altair, and I actually like combat in that outfit more.
