View Full Version : Glyph Solutions and locations (Stick or use with roadmap!!)

11-16-2010, 05:12 PM
First of all, sticky this or the creator of the roadmap can use it. Once, I get my capture card from Amazon, I will help with uploading the video locations. You going to notice that the term "Drop and Catch Back" is used heavily. I think what the guide is referring to is basically dropping from a higher area and hitting the "B" button to catch the ledge.

1. Centro (North)
-This Rift is on the north face of the viewpoint tower. (Upper area of the map)
2. Centro (South)
-On the north wall of the Rosa in Fiore
-Inside the Pantheon, just above the entrance.
-On the southeast face of the Pallazo Senatorio; perform a Drop and a catch back move from the roof above to reach it.
3. Campagna (North)
-On the west face of the east wall; use the beam below to reach it. (Located inside the barrack section of the area.)
4. Campagna (South)
-On the outside of the east wall of the Barracks compound; use drop and catch back to reach it.
5. Antico (West)
-Viewpoint tower in the center of the area; it is located on the north face of the tower; drop from above and grab the ledge.
6. Antico (East)
-High on the northwest face of the Colosseum; use the drop and catch back technique to reach the Rift. You should attempt to also collect the Borgia Flag and Feather beforehand.
-On the north face of the aquaduct. Climb and then jump from the nearby tower to reach the walkway, then use drop and catch back to enter the Rift.
7. Vaticano District
-On the south face of Castel Sant'Angelo, inside the main compound.

As with AC2; Brotherhood also has the glyphs puzzles; but this time, they are called Rifts. Each Rift is capable of
having 3+ puzzles in it, hence the reason why it is now called Clusters. Old puzzles return including Theme, Ring, Observation, and Cipher puzzles.

The new additions are Chessboard (You control the white pieces and solve it according to a cryptic riddle), Amplitude (Removing interference from a audio file), and Quarentine (Neutralize a series of tracking devices, these could be a picture itself, or it may look like blocks.)

So, this should do it, Nozza it going to put this guide up in the Roadmap. I'll possibly upload some photos of the Quarentine puzzles so you guys get the general idea. For the next solutions, I will be showing the locations of the Flags and Feathers, but this probably wont be for another couple of days considering I want to play the game.

Nice.. If its up to scratch and all are you ok for me to use it in my guide?

I'll just c/p it into new posts and give you all the credit?!

Or I place a link in the chieve description to here?

11-16-2010, 05:45 PM
Nozza I give you full permission to use it man. And the achievement Logo. X360a keeps logging me out when I'm trying to edit my reserves; its a pain in the ass.

Ummm, what in blue blazes are the number solutions for puzzles 5 7 and 10. All you have are the numbers the game provides you with, not the actual solutions. Please help.

I think the same, this guide is 50% useless man :confused:

11-19-2010, 03:23 AM
You should put up a map with the puzzle locations on it. I can't find a few of these based off of your descriptions.

"Solution" for cluster 4 theme puzzle is worthless . . . . the way it is written is confusing, not to mention the fact that it tells you nothing.

11-19-2010, 05:05 AM
The solution to cluster 4 theme puzzle is:


where x's are the pictures you want to select

11-19-2010, 10:45 PM
For those of you guys wondering, the answer to cluster 7 is CMZK. This "guide" isn't helpful at all. I'll post the answers once I finish them.

11-20-2010, 12:42 AM
The code for cluster 10 is:

89, 5, 334, 21

11-20-2010, 01:41 AM
Should get to work on this as soon as possible, looks helpful.


11-20-2010, 01:52 AM

EDIT: Completed up to cluster 8
