    To get the Native Armour, you have to find 7 native Pillars in the World of Assassins Creed Rogue. There are 3 Location in the North Atlantic and 4 Locations in the River Valley Area. If you reach a native Pillar you have to solve a little Puzzle (align all lines with the arrows on each end of the pillar) In addition, you'll unlock after the last Pillar the King of the Hill Achievement too. After you solve all Pillarpuzzles the native Armour is located on Orenda (272, -393).

    The Armour is not available till after you do something (no spoiler) during sequence 4.
    Here are the Locations with Ingame Coord. from the Pillars.

    North Atlantic:
    - Fogo (915, -67)
    - Terra Nova (787, -479)
    - Gros Morne (497, -309)

    Castila90Also, try listening to the correct set up sounds. it sounds like a *ping*. It worked for me, however the lines were not even close to align with eachother.

    For the guide. nice guide but please state that the armour is not available till after you do something (no spoiler) during sequence 4.

    WEBHEAD78OThe glitch with the Aarushi pillar happened to me too. The pillar was already aligned correctly when I got there and no amount of spinning the sections would unlock the totem. Fast traveling away and then back again fixed the issue. Thanks Zasta 360GameTV

    The other guides are correct, you have to collect the 7 totems and redeem them at the shrine in Orenda, but it should be noted that you can't get the armor and this achievement until after the Sequence 4 mission where you save the natives and the elder walks you over to the door and shows it to you. I mention this because I actually collected all of the totems in Sequence 2 (you can do this), and if you go to the door, you will be told to progress further in the memory sequence to unlock new locations.

    I haven't seen it mentioned online anywhere, so maybe I'm odd that I went out of my way to do and see everything possible before moving on with the story, but I figured maybe it wasn't just me that was confused, because the game will show you the icon on the map where the shrine is, but you will not be able to open it. I was confused for the longest time until the mission happened that made it obvious what was going on.

    Sequence 4? No wonder, I collected all 7 totems but still failed to get the armor. Thanks for the info.

    To unlock the Native armour, you must first visit the Native hills and Ice Caves, correctly solve the puzzle associated with the Native Pillar there, and obtain the Native Totem. There are 7 in total to collect, and they can be found at the locations listed below.

    If you look on the map, Native hills and Ice Caves are both identified by icons that look like caves. The co-ordinates for each are listed below.

    The totems will all be marked on your map when you reach each location (you may have to activate a synchronize point to unlock the map in some cases; these will be marked already). Once you know where it is, there is usually an obvious path that you should follow to reach it.

    Once you are there, you will have to solve a puzzle that involves lining up glowing lines with each other. This is not particularly challenging, but the video below shows you the correct combination for each totem.

    Complete all 7 and you will unlock the following achievement.
