@baby_hipp0 @royalgear1 I don't think this is the right place on the forums for this post. But I will react on it anyway. I think its great not having all those weapons. In odyssey it was truly an overkill of gear and weapons. In this game they made a choice to make weapons and gear a little more special. This means you have to play missions and do a lot of tressure hunting to get it. However I don't think it is a bad thing, it is different yes. But I like it. Makes it much more managaeble and special to find stuff! In odyssey I was getting tired of all that gear I kept on finding, nothing special about it anymore.

Although I wish there was at least a bit more variety in weapon designs we can use, I still prefer it to the RNG loot nonsense we've had for the past two games. It brings me back to the better better days and games of Assassin's Creed (in my opinion).
Also kind of irks me seeing all the cool armor and weapon sets in the store, but that's just Ubisoft being Ubisoft, I guess lol.

@ubi-whiteroom No he wont lol. I dont know what pass as plenty for you but 10 sests obtainable simply by going to the dot on the map is not plenty, thats a poor game design, but if you dont see the problem then ok. Odyssey had planty of amors and weapons, compared to that Valhalla is a joke.
Where are armors as rewards for quests and doing side activities? Where are armors for killing zealots, bosses and other tough opponents? Where are some historically accurate normal looking armors like NPCs wear? You are stuck with 10 visually very simillar and ugly looking armors, seriously this game is so dissapointing in terms of loot and rewards.
Instead of excuses rather please make content this game deserves.

@ubi-whiteroom this was a joke right? Please tell me your joking.
anyone who’s played valhalla knows it is severely lacking in weapons and armor in such a bad way that it’s actually mind boggling how it happened, but with the official response we got here it’s clear the folks at ubi don’t listen to fans at all.
This official reply kinda proves that

I personally prefer the way weapons and gear works in this game as opposed to odyssey. In odyssey it was just randomly generated and I would spend hours trying to get a weapon with that stats that I wanted. Here I do prefer how one piece of armor or weapon can take you through the whole game if you can upgrade it. I also prefer how the stats/runes work in this game. Sure now I am just farming for runes, but I have majority of the runes I want, plus since they technically do not give that much of an increase I do not feel the need to try to farm these runes. I know I am probably in the minority here, but I do like how the weapons and armor feel more unique, as opposed to hundred's of hundred's randomly generated gear.

They've gone from one extreme to another.... It's nice having fewer pieces of gear, but the weapon department is severely lacking (no one handed swords?!) as is the armors. I genuinely do appreciate having fewer pieces of gear, but it's too few now. Not really much of visual customisation (cant change the appearance of gear and late game gear looks rubbish). Just adding some more weapons and a 2 or 3 more armor sets. Like it's be awesome to get a one handed sword or other unique weapon for taking down a zealot, then get a chainmail armor set from wiping out a branch of the order. would make a huge difference to and actually add an incentive to killing bosses and the order. The current rewards aren't worth the time in my opinion.

@fiendtron84 it does feel better having only unique pieces of gear, but there's too few now to actually work towards. I completely agree with you, I don't want a return to Oddysey just sought reskins of weapons, just a few more choices and to be able to customise its appearance (like have the stats of end game gear, but the appearance of early game gear)

All the good weapons and armor sets were held back to be released later in the helix store. So there's more than enough of everything, you just have to pay extra for it. You have to remember this is Ubisoft.

can we please get some more gear that isn't tied to the real pay money store?

Trying to be constructive:
The large selection of different weapons and armor was a great feature in Odyssey.
The visual upgradability of weapons and armor in Valhalla has a nice touch, but is insufficient with the shortage of gear to collect an choose from. (I'm 10h into the game and still wear the same stuff from the first mission, but not because I want to, but because there'S nothing else.)
The loot system + disenchanting and upgrading was better in Odyssey.
Please just add the visual upgrading feature to how EVERYTHING ELSE was in Odyssey for the next game and we're all happy.
You don't have to reinvent the wheel for every expansion. Odyssey was great for its loot system, combat and skill+talent features.It just lacked choice flexibility in the main story and aspects from the older AC games, (which happily are now reintegrated again).

Personally, I like the fact that the equipment is rarer. It gives the impression that they are more precious and I feel pleased when I finally find one. I especially think that the armor are cooler and better designed. I love updraging them and see them changes (even if it's not a lot some times).
Having said that, however, I do agree that it still lacks a bit of variety. The team may have gone a bit too far making the stuff rare.

I'm here to say one thing.
One Handed Swords.
That is all.

One handed swords...
this is false.
I have played well over 90hours sofar. I selected bear tree as i prefer melee combat and yet i didnt find any bear gear for the 1st 50hours of my game.
It seems there are only 2 bear sets in the entire game, thats not much.
Basically you guys force us to get stuff from the money store, even though i paid full price for a game. Getting a money bought gear set defeats the purpose of playing a game.
really wish enemies would drop armor and weapons as well, looting or even auto looting is just a waste currently as u get like 1-2 silver max per person.
like i said before buying stuff from shops or real money isnt rewarding, its a game and armor and weapons should be dropped by enemies, this will engage you to actually fight and get out there.
Now the game is just finding synchronysation points see where golden dots are and loot chests. This is a terrible design
exactly what is special about the g ear in valhalla?
They all look somewhat the same, a big cloack and in the mythical version its mostly pure gold
Like your some kind of rapper. There is no diversity in the armor, just 2 bear sets and so on
I know vikings as a show is not 100% historical accurate but just take a look at the many different armor types they wear and then take a look at this game.
I mean odyssey had way more options and yet ppl complained about how the NPC's had so many special and cool looking armor items that we werent able to get, why didnt they listen there and improved their system for their next game?

I wish they added 1 Hand Swords and 2 Handed Axes.
