Pretty much where people have said, they get the standard white assassin outfit, sword, wrist blade, smoke bomb and the hand cannon.
Personally I was very dissappointed how they implemented recruit assassins, there's all end up generic. I was hoping there was more customisation with weapons, armor and micro management when they become assassins.
From: MetrosexualVaan | #010 They become completely overpowered. I've put them up against hordes of enemies including Papal Guards and I've still yet to see them lose so much as one square of health.
That they do.
And I have seen one lose a single square of health, but that was after I accidentally hit him with the Sword of Altair a couple of times in a particularly hectic battle. =P --- If you can read this, you don't need glasses. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_M-BcQLEAJY
