... don't mean the new guy should be an assassin by instinct.

Uh, Connor gets training to be an Assassin from teen to adulthood. It's not like he has the skills already in him from the beginning. Edward doesn't even train to be an Assassin until the end of the game and by than, it's barely noticeable of where he got his assassin skills throughout the game. He just picks up a hidden blade and instantly, he's killing people like an Assassin without having any type of training beforehand whatsoever.

he's a pirate, though. he kills people for a living. i don't think it's so far fetched for him to have these skills after years of pirating.


i can def see where the complaint is coming from, but i just can't agree with it.

My thing is that even though he's been pirating for years, he still shouldn't have the skills of an Assassin. The climbing and swordplay, I can totally understand since he would have been climbing up and down the rigging and fighting. But using the hidden blade solely on instinct is pretty farfetched

i don't really picture the hidden blade as something you'd need to learn and master over years of practice, really. maybe being able to swiftly pop it out without hurting yourself would take some practice, but other than that it's basically a dagger yanno? i feel like as a pirate he'd have some dagger skills that would transfer over to hidden blade.

It's a knife attached to his wrist. Not exactly an exotic weapon. Ezio picked it up and used it just fine with no training, too, remember.

How is this "casual?"

"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
