you will explode.
Max level is 99 now, and you can't realistically hit that level without doing a New Game Plus. If you have a piece of equipment you really love, just upgrade it every 5 levels or so. It'll still get expensive.Picked this up because it was on sale and I loved it. Went with Kassandra because of course, right? And riding around the Aegean stabbing fools has never been so much fun. For the record,
Gearwise I'm waiting until I hit maximum level and then am going to pick the set bonus I like and upgrade all the stuff up to there. Appearance-wise... I really like the clean lines of the Spartan armor with the black iron material. Everyone else running around in red and gold or blue and white and I'm stalking through the battlefield in my black iron horned helmet, like the specter of Hades himself come to walk the world.
My biggest complaint (aside from all the controls being tied to the shoulder buttons -- they had such a good scheme with Black Flag! Why change it all around?) was that a lot of the higher-level mercs and whatnot are simply health sponges. They take soooooo much damage than even with a Legendary weapon I feel like I'm whittling away at a rock face.
And there is an alternate control scheme that makes it work more like old school AC. I am using that myself.
