2~3. Getting To Your Horse - Tips
Pass Through The Roofs
Since you do not have equipment with you, it would be best to avoid any type of combat while getting to your horse. Your best bet is to head to your horse via the roofs. This keeps you out of the enemy's line of sight.
5. Getting To The Sacred Tree - Tips
Hide In The Shrubbery To Avoid Detection
Sneak past your enemies by hiding in the tall grass and behind large rocks. This keeps you out of their line of sight and makes you harder to spot!
6. Investigating The Area - Tips
Follow The Trail Of Bodies
Follow the trail of bodies that lead to the small river while investigating them. These will give you clues as to how they were killed. The bodies are generally close enough that you will be able to follow them.
12, 20. Rescuing Hostages - Tips
Watch Out For Enemies With Red Icons
Enemies that suddenly have a red icon on top of their head are about to execute one of the prisoners. Make sure to prioritize these enemies as getting a prisoner killed will immediately fail the mission.
15. Defeating The Mongols - Tips
Use The Explosive Barrels To Deal Damage
When the enemy is on the ice, make sure to shoot at the explosive barrels near them. This will cause it to explode and set some of the enemies on fire.
19. Defeating The Warlord - Tips
Prioritize Archers First
Archers can be a nuisance as they can poison you, dealing damage over time. Make sure to take out these enemies first as they can quickly burn through your health if left unchecked.
Use Ghost Stance If Possible
If you've filled your Ghost Meter, it would be best to use the Ghost Stance to deal with the warlord and other enemies. There are several heavily armored enemies in this area so it would be best to deal with them quickly.Check Out The Stances Guide Here!
