View Full Version : [XB360] AC2 Last Tomb for Altair Armor Help

04-15-2014, 06:03 PM
I got the first 5 seals, but it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to get through the last tomb. :(

I'm an old guy with a couple of disabilities involving my hands and I just can't seem to master the "run up the wall and jump to the side" trick..

Is there any way to get a pass of some sort and obtain the last seal?

I'm on Xbox 360.

Thanks much.

Sometimes I wonder if I had an accident and lost a hand or something how I would be able to keep playing AC games. It would suck. You don't say which tomb is giving you trouble, but I assume it's one of the two in Venice. Since you're having trouble with the old "run up the wall and jump to the side" trick, I'd wager it's the tomb in Santa Maria della Visitazione, aka Visitazione's secret. I had a ton of trouble with this one too, mostly because Ezio would go flying off in every direction but the one I wanted. What I finally figured out is it's not about doing it fast, it's about doing it smoothly. You know the old saying "slow is smooth and smooth is fast"? Take your time and hit each button/thumbstick deliberately.

What I suggest is:

Read through at least one walkthrough (read a couple times) http://www.ign.com/wikis/assassins-creed-2/Visitazione%27s_Secret
Watch at least one walkthrough video (watch a few times) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DvyJj4ZOEM4
Practice the "advanced wall run" outside, against a wall at ground level, without all the rocks and walls and water around and no time limit

Once you get the rhythm down against the outside wall, and you have read and watched the walkthrough so you have a feel for the route and timing, give it another shot. It may take some effort, as I'm sure you've learned to deal with with your disabilities, but it will be satisfying to beat it.

If all else fails, and you just can't get it and are going to give up, then:

Ask your kids, grandkids, neices, nephews, or neighbor kid to do it for you. The younger the better :)
Call the local Jr High, grade school, church, boy scout or cub scout troop, or game store and see if they know any kids who could help (too creepy?) :cool:
I'll tell you my secret weapon :nonchalance:

Good luck!
