Eden Shard

I already got all trinkets and finished the pirate missions, I see the new outfit buy is that all? Does the Shard of Eden serves any purpose? Because I cannot find it in the trophy collection.

Did you listen to Shaun when he explained what it does, RIGHT after the mission? It stops incoming bullets.

Never noticed since I dont get shot much. And the game had some bugs so I'm not sure if the notifications I get are correct.

First thing I get the shard of eden I go off and fight a guard and wait for them to shoot me.
But the bullet still hits me, is there somewhere i need to equip it for it to work?

It only decreases the chance of being hit. When the shard deflects a bullet a yellow animation occurs.

Ever since I got that shard the game feels the need to tell me that I acquired it whenever I enter a new area. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. It's become very annoying.

Most pointless item ever. I get shot at a lot and never get hit. I swear it's like they were taught by storm troopers or something.

Don't you see?? Every time you fast travel or load, the game gifts you with another shard!! You've got to assemble all the shards to create a whole!! You'll just have to figure out how to make them fit together. I haven't figured it out yet.

A little historical anecdote for you: George Washington was never shot once during the Revolution. Closest that happened was a bullet hitting him in the chest, but since it was outside of its effective range, it harmlessly bounced off. Might've left a stain on his clothes from gunpowder residue, but that's it.

And now we have a Shard of Eden with bullet deflecting properties. My guess is that Connor will give it to him as the game's way of explaining it. Or I'm just being a history nerd all of a sudden.
