So I was messing around and i figured out that Carnifice will follow you to the ends of the earth (:

Im aware this is a mediocre stunt. I just thought someone might be able to turn it into an Eagle Strike. Rome is huge and i havn't managed to find a point higher than this for this assassination

If the video quality is low, its processing.

Yes i know i spelt the name wrong in the video. I was to lazy to check lol

I know it's not a great stunt at all, but the game is like 2 days old (: I couldn't find a higher point with what I was given. Plus this is the 1st assassination mission. I think

------------

Information on the stunt..

First of all, the reason i can't pull off an eagle is because, angling from the metal cross to the ledge, is rather difficult (for me at least). As i understand, an Eagle Strike is jumping from a place high enough for the fall to kill you, grabbing a ledge, and air-to-assassinating the target. Which this was, except for the lack in height.

When you kill the guards at the Assassination Point, go back and get Carne. Kill his guards but not him. He will follow you everywhere. Bring him to the Assassination Point and get him to stand where the guards use to be. (Carne moves EXTREMELY slow. So you'll need a bit of patience.)

To get Carne to stop moving, stand at the place you want him, wait till hes really close to you, and climb the wall to the top. At the top, he won't see you (Carne can't seem to see Ezio if hes climbing or above him) stand there until you become anonymous, and Carne will refuse to move until you aggro him again. Simply do the stunt.

INFORMATION ON CARNEFICE

The reason why you have to take out the guards at the Assassination Point-
If you're in conflict with Carne (which u have to be for him to follow you) and other guards besides his own join the conflict, Carne will flee and theres no way you can stop him, ive tried.

Carne can't see Ezio if he's climbing a wall about 10 feet off the ground (i have no idea why)

Carne moves slower than a snail

If Ezio is moving on the rooftops while in conflict w/ Carne (even though Carne can't see Ezio technically) Carne will still attempt to follow Ezio. If you stay in once place the second your Alert thing goes yellow, Carne won't move, and once you become anonymous, you can freely move without worrying about Carne

I would review this video for front-page status except I'm avoiding "how to assassinate" spoilers and haven't gotten this far in the game yet. Tired Hang in there! Ian or I will evaluate it soon.

You won't even feel the blade.

Wow! I look forward to seeing that Smile The Il Carnefice assassination was stupidly short so I can't wait to see it carried out a bit more creatively Smile

ye i so agree. Im at the end of sequence 7 and ive only done 3 'real' assassinations Sad. other than Carnefice, the others see very hard to do stunts on, cuz u need stealth on both :S
