Oh thank goodness for you!
I did read the Romans recreated Greek sculptures, just had no idea why. The story behind it is bittersweet though. Kind of sad : (
What do you think about Ubi not using original Roman sculptures though?
Even I found a few original Roman ones in my Google studies xD I read they made Augustus from Prima Porta, Fonseca Bust and Equestrian Marcus Aurelius just to name a few. So they exist... Ubi just didn't use them : /
I cannot speak for everyone here but personally I like to keep looking for clues. When this mystery is ready to be solved, I don't want to waste entire game days and nights throwing rocks and dead bodies at the runes when I should be dancing naked and feeding a cat instead. Know what I mean? : /
Fair enough. I'll grant you the latter part of your point and regrettably I agree : / We're still missing some non-mysterious fish as well...
Personally, I don't find this venture pointless though. Cannot solve this mystery yet but I'm learning about Norse culture, runes/symbols, and now ancient Roman and Greek art.
I can read the sky and wouldn't get lost in the woods at night without this game and Odin's rune mystery, but I'm now learning about subjects I never bothered looking into before.

@missm16 Im very happy to be here among you all!
Let me think, hmm... Probably because we have mainly Roman temples, and the busts you mentioned could be found only in forums, the senate, because they didn't have a religious function, only political. I also feel like ubisoft made these ruins bigger than they could be, probably to emphasize the roman heritage of the anglo-saxons?
But I definetly agree, there are mainly roman copies, more greek in style than pure roman!
I will also continue looking for clues, and keep my eyes peeled for anything! If we need to spin in circles naked and drunk, so be it! xD

I am really horrified. Instead of working on the bugs and optimizing the game, they put out another HELIX MTX pack ...
Ubisoft should be ashamed.
It's unbelievable how greedy the company has become, true to the motto: We don't care what they want, we do what we want ....
They should just be careful that this philosophy does not backfire and ruins the future of this franchise...

@tchester1980 nothing will happen
still a lot of people are happy bout new mtx packs
and according to to some phrases from ubi interview, ubi find river raids quite repetitive and replayble, you know
so they nearly give up on activities at the end of game, but trying to sell packs - fantasy packs - for what?
Odyssey was the best thing ever happend to ac games. hope one day we'll get an 60 pfs patch for next gen consoles - I'm gonna even pay again in respect for that studio - and for their best decisions ever
for myself, I'm in doubt of buying new ac game, and I wont ever buy an ultimate edition - just the cheapest one

Me too. No longer Ultimate Edition or directly from beginning the Season Pass.
But I´m not sure if I will buy a new AC game in future due to their philosophy....
I will not pay for a game which also offers additional ingame armor set to be paid for to look fantastic, but the look is out of proportion or even close to the game itself.
Nobody needs such exaggerated armor that looks like it comes straight from another world and it´s no viking look!

@tchester1980 its been interesting seeing how Ubisoft works in all of this. Valhalla was the first Ubi game i ever bought and it was a big shock how money driven they are. Other studios i have been into don't seem to be like this at all.
after completing Valhalla i bought Origins, base version of the game for £15 and got the season pass on offer for around £11. Ive had 2 crashes the whole game of Orgins and half way through 1 of the DLC's. It seems they do fix buys eventually but i will defo be waiting a good year or so if i buy another Ubisoft release.
Voting with your wallet is the best way for a company to pay attention

They just removed the swordfish trophy from the game, but the fish in the fisherman's hut are still there

I have a possible theory about the runes themselves. it involves spoilers, so if you haven't finished the game, I say stop reading and finish it!
So as we all know, this is Odin's illusionary rune of camouflage and deception. So I started to ask myself, thinking of the game developers, the storytelling in general, and on all the folklore and myth we've come across. Now we all may be thinking, Odin, probably hid something, or multiple somethings in England. But then I thought, who would Odin want to hide anything from? Why Camoflage, blend in, in plain sight like the titular assassins? And then I had a thought. We all know at this point Basim is the reincarnation of Loki, who currently has all of his old memories, and is currently at the end of the game is the one in the Animus, viewing Eivor's memories. Perhaps Odin, having the gift of foresight, saw that he needed to hide whatever it is from Loki, and the reason all we can see at this time is a symbol of Illusion. Idk, it may be a stretch, but until they release something new about it, maybe this theory can help support another one.

if the Basim outfit and Spear stuff is somehow linked to the Odin Runes, it would all make sense. I personally was hoping for an Isu/Odin outfit for completing whatever is linked to the Runes but id take another Isu Spear

I hate to ask this question, but I couldn’t log into the forum for a while, so I lost track…. Has anyone checked for the runes in Vinland?

Are you back onto solving the mystery?
Did then some of you get through those sort of monsters appearing in the irish woods within some green shadow?
Because I was wondering what kind reward these could afford, as long as I had no chance to win against them at that time.
Actually, they appear at night, like the person MissM16 showed on a pic. I had also experimented the same thing as MissM16 after having accomplished the mystery at that precise location in England, and that was at night too. Obviously, there are IMHO some things pointing to "the night timelaps".
I wish you the best.
