I was shopping for some armor last night, and I noticed a statistic on the armor purchase screen that I hadn't seen in previous AC games. It looked like the "Assassin's Logo" (a stylized A of sorts) followed by "-15%". What is this for?

I didn't notice it on the armor/inventory equip screens after I'd purchased it. My best guess is it's some sort of discount for being an Assassin. I could see why you might want to give a guy who has robes full of pointy things a discount, but why 15%? If it is a discount, how can I get a bigger one?

The stylized "A" replaces the "f" symbol from previous games in regards to money, because you aren't spending florins anymore. :) – Ash Dec 6 '11 at 1:12
Specifically, the stylized A stands for Akçe, the currency of the area at the time. – TechParadox Dec 20 '11 at 14:20
That's actually a different stylized A. The one I'm speaking of is actually the Assassin's logo (sort of an inverted, stylized V shape moreso than the symbol for the currency in this game) – agent86 Dec 20 '11 at 14:26

For Owning the shop, you get 15% reduction on the prices of items. When you get to cappadoce, everything costs 15% more because they are under control of the templars.

To clarify, the "A" indicates assassin control of the area. – Shinrai Dec 6 '11 at 14:40
When an Assassin's den is attacked by Templars and they "control the area", then all the stores in that area will have the Templars logo and a +15% just as in Cappadoce. – Ilya Melamed Mar 3 '12 at 16:21
Are there any shops you can buy things from that you don't own? Doesn't that make it a pointless distinction? – Alex Mar 12 '12 at 12:04
Yes. Read comment from Ilya just before yours. – Fredy31 Mar 12 '12 at 13:49
