I've all but completed 100% sync, I'm struggling on the " catch the sage" from the roof tops, I've watched various video's and I'm still assassinating him (even when he's highlighted "knockout") from the start I seem to be 2/3 seconds behind him (I've even found a short cut where I can wait but I still end up killing him) after nearly 6 hrs (on/off) I'm at my the end of my tether. Can anybody help me get this final part for 100%. Thanks for reading this.

I'm assuming you mean the part where ur escorting him and he runs off...

To not kill him, u need to do it like a tackle. Works on the roof too. What it does is he'll jump on the target, KO them and not killing.

If he's not a story target, that just knocks them and they'll stand to fight again.

So do what u normally do to tackle. On pc that's move towards target direction and preas E. Repeatedly if u have to.

Thanks for the reply, I'll try that shortly (I think I might have done this already?) As I've said this is the last one to get 100% sync and I'm getting frustrated by the minute for something that should be simple. Thanks again.

I've tried what you suggested and failed (again) I tackled him on the roof tops and scene played but no highlight in the box "tackle the sage from above" only the "use pistol in combat" is highlighted 90% sync. From the title "tackle the sage from above" I assumed I dropped down on him? Sometimes it highlights "knockout" square on ps3 but even that I end up killing him! Thanks again.

When you're on the rooftop and the Sage is on the streets/ground:
1. Make sure you're within range and the target is highlighted.
2. Hold R1
3. Press O

4. Edward will then automatically lock-on to the Sage and jump off from the roofs to tackle him.

SUCCESS! Finally after nearly 7hours I got him, 100% + Award " By The Book" simple when you know how!!!!! Thanks you . I think I'll have a lie down in a dark room now.

That's exactly what I said, lol
Except the controler button & keyboard

What's the difference that made it possible. :)

Your advice is correct but I think Staffs-Knot is unfamiliar with the PC controls.
