View Full Version : Stealthily collecting codex pages

I've been trying to collect codex pages without starting fights with the guards guarding them. So far, no luck.

I've tried climbing down the wall of the banks, and dropping behind them, but someone always sees me when I get too low.

I've tried throwing money, and that gets them to turn away, but then I can't get out of the bank again without starting a fight.

I haven't tried smoke bombs (I don't have them yet) or dead-body lures; have either of these methods worked for people?

The answer is that there's always some courtesans or thieves around. Hire them, have them target the guards, and let them work.

I like to use cortesans to distract them and sneak in and when i'm done just stealth assassinate the gaurds while their eyes are one the ladies. That way i get back my cortesans instead of letting them walk away. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Exactly what others have said;

Courtesans, Thieves and even Fighters.

Or, another way is to smoke bomb then, run in, grab it and run out again.

I like body lures, smoke bombs and a money and smoke bomb combination sometimes. o_O

Best way is with thieves as the soldiers will chase them off. If your to slow, the other tricks don't result in the guards being gone long.
