Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Metagame and Shop Quest Rewards

As if Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood wasn’t complicated enough, it features an extensive metagame that allows you to save the city from the ravages of the Borgia clan. By repairing and opening various commercial enterprises, you can reinvigorate Rome’s flagging economy and earn yourself a tidy sum in the process.

You can also unlock powerful items by completing what are essentially crafting quests. Talk to the various merchants on Tiber Island near the Assassin Hideout. They’ll ask you to retrieve specific combinations of  items; when you do, you’ll be rewarded. Look for these items in hidden treasure chests (particularly in Sons of Romulus lairs), during Contract Missions, by pickpocketing civilians, and by waylaying Bandits, Borgia Couriers, and Wolfmen.
