  • I believe that the Vambrace in this episode was only slighly intentional but mostly not becuase of the fact that the vambrace look like it was made out of Gregorek Skin and it could stop their bite force. This is coupled with the way the blade is cut and as a result it has similarities to the Assassin's Creed Hidden Blade but it's not entirely a reference to it

    • Psst, the Wesen is called Gelumcaedus. (Gregorek is the name of the nasty fellow who bit off Scott's arm.)

      Oh, the thing about it being made from Gelumcaedus skin is interesting though. Because that would make sense; I'd been wondering how leather/metal could stop a Gelumcaedus bite. It certainly does look like the blades from AC, though. Wonder if the writers play that game...? ^^

    • Thank you for correcting me and I would think that their own skin  would be the only thing to stop it because they can't be biting through their own bodies and I don't think that aligator skin could stop Gelumcaedus bite. I mean they tear you limb from limb aligators have to death roll.

    • The vambrace could have been made with the help of magic to make arm protector strong.

    • Unlikely to be magic as the only magic (unless you include woging) seen has been of the potion variety and created by hexenbiests. Of course if it is Gelumcaedus skin, it must have been preserved using Sauver Sa Peau, which could be said to be magical.

      My thought is that it is regular leather with metal strips as the filling in a leather sandwich, which prevents the Gelumcaedus bite from penetrating so that when they try to rip/shake their victim they are unable to maintain grip, and so cannot do the damage.

      Well, perhaps. You see, Assassin's Creed Hidden Blade Bracer was like stretch and automatic retract on the wearer's motion. Nick's switchblade was more of a manual one, and it doesn't look like it will automatically retract. It is more crude to wield, yet it is also more realistic.

    • Honestly It's more similar to when the Templars began replicating the Assassin' Hidden Blade, They trained one of their operatives how to hunt like an Assassin, and then gave him a Manuel Hidden Switchblade that was clunky and requires tuning in order to function but effective in combat.

      Seriously? Nicholas Burkhardt, a Templar? And Haythem Kenway's wristblade doesn't need tuning... how old is Nick's vambrace, anyway?

      That big-ass blade attachment to the bracer, pretty much only that was like AC1. AC1's wristblade was at least automatic. Nick's wristblade was so much more primitive - manual! Not to mention Ezio's blade(s) was/were crafted with immense beauty and advancements. Haythem/Connor's blades are even more advanced due to their 200 more years. Connor's blades can even be detached as a short dagger(which would be much more noticable if you skin an animal and watch carefully).

      Well at least that weapon was used. I don't have to bicker about the details.

      Correction: Connor's Left Hidden Blade does NOT detach. It's a pivot blade that functions like a dagger. :/

      Ah yes. But still, it's an improvement to Ezio's wristblades, right? Default dual-wields, pivot switch into temporary mini-dagger. Also a lot prettier. But Edward's blade was a lot wider, right? Like a combat knife-width.

      Yes. Truth spoken. 'Nuf said. I'm not updated to Grimm now. Still stuck at around episode 6 in season 2. :/

    • I'd like to see Nick wear the vambrace more often, not just against a gelumcaedus but against other creatures too, like a backup weapon. I always liked hidden blades or swords.

      It's cool, I'll give it that. But too bad the Grimms don't have the schematics to Ezio's armored bracer(1511 version), with the smooth blade design rather than that big-ass knife hanging on the bracer, with all the upgrades - automatic extend/retract, dual-wield, hookblade, poison spike, dart launcher, pistol attachment, etc (I think I pretty much covered everything). And after Nick learn Connor/Edward's combat techniques... jeez.

      Thoughts?

      Well, your suggestion is nice. Nick parkours down the alley, uses the hookblade to hang in the ledge, and kicks some real booty!

      Funny you mentioned parkour. Do you know that Michael Fassbender will be starring in the 2015 film Assassin's Creed? I gotta say that is a phenomenally extraordinary game series. Reality/Fiction levels well adjusted. Not far-drifted from reality. Actual history-related. Its freerun ability - totally unlike the supercharged version in Prototype. Action packs-- treasure hunter-- story-- explorations - all in one piece of work. And its signature move - OH MY GAWWWWWDE! So thrilling every time. First intel said that Fassbender is portraying Altair in the 2015 movie. My classmate said that Assassin's Creed is more fit for a TV series than a movie. Hope he doesn't ruin our favourite character.

      And you mentioned Nick parkouring down the alley and others. Well I'll be real surprised if I ever see Nick performing the Leap and jumps off a high building in Portland, or performing an air capture on a wesen suspect.

      LOL. That's nice. Well, the 2015 film is called "Piece of Eden", yet it was still unconfirmed by Ubi. Well, of course I know Fassbender will be Altair in the film because of the Assassin's Creed wiki (also a prominent editor there, check it out!).

      There are laws about carrying offensive weaponry, and I'm pretty sure that the vambrace breaks them.

    • Nick could definitely upgrade the vambrace so he could use it more easily, like having the trigger button on the palm instead of on his arm and possibly have a small compartment to store arrows for his doppelarmburst or other ammunition.

      Agreed. But maybe not necessarily if using Ezio's, Connor's or Edward's design schematics - theirs were hardly noticable with the smooth bracer-to-blade transitions. But if Nick walk around the street in broad daylight wearing his bracers with that big-ass blade attachment hanging down(and there were corners!) there's no way he won't attract attention. Good thing he's battling the Gelumcaedus at night, and in the seclusive sewers.

    • It's a "Hidden Blade," the iconic weapon used by titular characters of the game "Assassin's Creed," it was used as a silent execution of targets.

    • Imagine a Vambrace + Doppelarmburst hybrid. Basically, the Phantom Blade, but better.
