3. Disabling The Alarm - Tips
Stick To the Outer Edge Of The Fort
One way to get to the lighthouse is to stick to the edge of the Fort. There are only individual enemies in this area. Assassinating these individuals won't cause you to be detected!

9. Leading Ryuzo To The Ship - Tips
Must Be Out Of Combat To Get On Ship
Keep in mind that if you are drawing aggression from the enemy, you will not be able to enter the boat and progress with the mission. Make sure to defeat all nearby enemies before leading Ryuzo to the boat.
Finding The Scroll - Tips
The scroll can be found on the ship with the caged bear. Enter the main room of the ship and head to the bedroom in the middle. The scroll will be on the table near the bed.
15. Standoff Against The Mongol - Tips
Ryuzo Needs To Be Revived Quickly
As you fight, Ryuzo's health will start to deteriorate. You will need to revive him before his life count reaches 0. Try to focus on parrying as the Mongol is aggressive with their attacks. Countering will finish him off quickly, allowing you to revive Ryuzo!
