What do you mean you couldn't buy weapons? Haven't you tired going to a general store?

I love finding general stores after stealing and trying out a new weapon. I bought a Dutch axe but managed to throw it into someone's head :P so I would have to go back to a store to equip another.
The weapons are all neat, I especially like using a sword and double-barrel English pistol, but I want an AC set in the Middle Ages again, or maybe the Roman Empire age.

Ah, yes. That tricky Y button seems to take all of my axes.

but I want an AC set in the Middle Ages again, or maybe the Roman Empire age.

I have actually thought about this quite a bit, and, frankly, I wouldn't mind an AC set in the American Civil War/Mid-1850's. I mean, think about it; the war was fought in the unrelenting forests and deserts, so you'd have trees and sand dunes to climb. Mexico was at war with the US, so you'd have an outside conflict again. The weapons weren't quite developed yet, but I suppose it'd be more of a shooter.

It would be like an advanced ACIII, and that game had a fantastic setting.

You mean weapons are sold in general stores? That is a little strange isn't it? I never tried getting there because I never thought it to be possible.

Never had to. It was already too easy and i never had to go buy new weapons. But my argument is also supported by the fact that the best weapon in the game is held by officers and all you have to do is pick it up. So you don't even have to buy weapons, that is why I never tried looking for them at all.

Weapons are for your play style, not to do certain things. They didn't want to make you have to buy a weapon just to win, that's for the FPSs. You can also upgrade the Aquila, which is handy if you want to chase after full sync in some of the naval missions. Nothing better than MOAR CANNON

in other AC's it toke you ages to chop down a hard enemy whit your 1st dagger.
better weapons simply mend more damage, speed, and time to counter. so it gets easyer to kill the harder ones.

(this game is more a 3th-PS then any of the other AC's. it's the 1st whit a actual crosshairs. everything points at AC turning FPS sooner or latter.)

The money is a bit pointless, yeah. I have 100k and I'm only at 60% completion. I have the fully upgraded Aquila, every weapon, fully upgraded conveys (which are useless), and every outfit except for the Ezio one. But some of the outfits don't require any money to be spent.

Oh, and if you want something interesting to do but don't wan to find feathers, get the trinkets. There are four tiers and every tier unlocks a really cool mission. There's also a very cool prize at the end.

Conner doesn't fight Templar knights or Venetian armored brutes. He fights men who have no armor, and only some giant Scottish Highlander is able to survive a more than a few stabs. I suggest getting stabbed by a dagger or hit with a steel tomahawk with nothing but a few layers of cloth and see how you fare.
