Got all the trinkets, found the treasure. Whats it do?

I collected the trinkets got all the pieces of the map and found the treasure now im back at the homestead. So i got a phone call at the same time it was being explained.. i thought I heard about something like it deflects bullets or something? I got the ring and now im back at the manor. Is this something I need to equip for it to take effect and what exactly does this treasure do?

it's always on once you find it (which is made annoyingly clear by the stupid animus since every friggin loading screen now pops up that i have it) it basicly will deflect some (all?) bullets from you, you'll notice a little electrical charge when somebody shoots at you

heh, like most things in this game i'm sure it's inconsistant, but i'm sure it doesn't 100% protect you, especilly from multiple shots

Yeah, you'll know it kicked in because a yellow globe will surround you. Or Kite has just data drained you. Either one.

You can just turn off notifications in the hud setting. Since they are listed out in the menu anyway if something happens you want to check they are there.

Personally I found them insanely annoying. When entering a new area and it would pop up etc.

Also had the same experience of the ring only reflecting some things. I think maybe if it's multiple bullets at once you still take damage.

I'm constantly seeing "1 Weapon Unlocked" or something. Turning off the notifications will deter that?

I was kind pissed by the fact all we got was the shard of eden, I was hoping for at least a lucrative sum of gold.

Shard of Eden> Gold. Gold is easy to come by in this game , Pieces of Eden are not . As far as i know it will shield you occasionally from bullet damage. Pretty pointless considering the human shield move.

As mentioned above, it is explained by Faulkner that it has a CHANCE to deflect bullets, just as it deflected his flask when he tried to raise it near Connor. Not 100%, but a hell of a lot better than the useless currency!

Yup. I have never seen that 1 weapon unlocked one lol.

I turned it off because it annoyed me in the frontier when it would tell me about entering a new area.

that 1 weapon unlocked message is a bug with the twin holsters (with the 2nd weapon being loaded every time)

Are you sure there isn't anything else you can do with the Shard though?

I finished the quest and suddenly I'm getting 3 messages every time I travel instead of 1.

Quote:
Acquired:
weapon 1
Shard of Eden
Citizen Mission Item Acquired
Doesn't that mean I have something I can hand into someone for a quest or something?
