After the Banker appears in the memory he walks to the party. He can be scared into running away. Chase after him for a good distance. When you get within a few meters he stops. The target is supposed to teleport in place for the scene, but since you are so far away from the scene location he doesn't (probably because the party area isn't modeled in the game from being so far away). Now the only way to kill him is moving him into water. He falls nearly two hundred meters. Here's the thing: If you get about sixty meters away from him horizontally you desynchronize with "target lost". There are probably a few reasons why that's so, but in any case you don't desynch directly from killing him, making it a successful Early Death.
A Hole in One
This took a long time to perform right. Start off by stealthily killing the guards in the area. Then throw their bodies to the ground below to lead to the well nearby.
Now place the target at ground level, as was shown in a previous video, where he can be lured by the dead bodies.
Having the target follow the bodies is tricky. He doesn't seem to notice some of them that much, might have to do with distance and object modeling (or he just takes too long to inspect the bodies). Now for the assassination. A fatally high jump from the top of the nearby pillar will have you safely land in the well to ledge assassinate the Banker. This is A Hole in One, loosely related to Eagle Strike.
It was pioneered by IanXO4.
And used as an assassination style by Stabguy.
I had intended to lure the Banker using dead bodies, but instead chose the easier way of moving him. At the start of the assassination quickly stealth kill all guards that could expose you during the setup. For a short while the Banker is unresponsive and can't detect you. You can grab him without being exposed. Move him to the place shown and release him. You'll need to use a smoke bomb or two to keep him in place long enough to lock onto him. Quickly kill off the archers that can see you and lock onto the target. The distance you desynch at is sixty meters. There is a brief moment before you desynch, so you might succeed at sixty meters, but in this setup from where Ezio is standing the farthest distance the target got was fifty nine meters.
At the beginning of the assassination quickly climb up the roof of the building and kill the archer. Then run off the corner and assassinate the target. If I remember right I got this the first time I tried it. But in this video it happened a little different. In the original try I landed right behind him. But in here I landed to the side of him (good thing I locked on). In both cases I got the stationary high profile animation.
Nice work as usual. Sorry I dont keep up with these vids, im just over exploits.
This one was extra enjoyable, Aurel! So much fun killing off this jerk - and now more ways to do it! Yippee!
Finally, a THB comment actually congratulating the video! *grumbles against everyone else* This took a lot of work, especially the Hole in One. If anyone has any doubts about the Early Death actually killing the Banker, here's my observations with the effects of water on invincible people (copied from one of my comments on youtube).
Water is the only thing that can kill when nothing else can. There's been some debate as to whether it does kill invincible characters. In the vid North Gate Area Exploit and Cesare Preassassination Cesare is invincible, but when he falls in the water he assumes the "dead floating" position. Invincible dead bodies in water appear to fall faster than they should, but I guess invincible characters don't have collision mechanics (which is why they can't be attacked/tackled/grabbed/shoved).

Dude, it's great work. It's just that you always deliver this kind of work and it gets rather tiring to continuously say: "wow, that's awesome!" every other day when you upload a video.

You're right. It's easy peasy making vids nearly every week, while it's great labor commenting all those times. That's why you should comment once, then copy and paste the same comment over and over again (I sure hope people can spot sarcasm).
Actually it's an exploit where I turn items in the game to gold. And if I open the disk tray, the item comes out of the game. Okay, it's the glowing weapon and unicorn cheat. If you're wondering why I had the cheat on, it was more than for the fun of it. I might make a video soon showing a trick using cheats.
why is your sword glowing a few times?

He's got that 'awesome weapon' cheat on.
