In Mission 6: The Dust District, knockout Paolo. This may also work on Breanna in Mission 5.
Loot his body for three Bonecharms, but make sure to sacrifice the third Bonecharm. Kill him,
then you should be able to loot him again for the same charm. It should now be glitched. It
will always unequip itself. Sacrificing the Bonecharm will not give you any additional
Whalebones; it will just re-appear. Stack five Void Favor Charms (four traits) to get
Note: Create a backup save before using this exploit, as it could cause issues with your
game. It can cause weird visual effects at your start and save screens.
This is the best Emily power we have seen yet. This gives you the ability to
connect and line up the faiths of your enemies. What this means is that
whatever you do to one enemy will happen to the rest. So, as in a “Domino
Effect”, one domino enemy falls victim to your powers and so do the others if
they were aligned properly.
Tips and Tricks for Beginners:
-=Save the Game=-
The game offers you three slots to save progress. So maintain a habit from
start to save the game in last position to avoid replaying some missions.
Manual save points are better than checkpoints and will save your time.
-=Collect everything you can find=-
When you are in an area try to investigate everything. Open the boxes,
cabinets, etc to find coins, cash, etc. This will be later used to buy a
lot of upgrades. So gather every possible item in the game.
-=The Alert Bar=-
Keep watch on the alert levels whenever you are moving in Karnaca. There
are guards everywhere. Your movement can alert the guard. Whenever you are
spotted you will see a white bar on the top of the screen. If turns red
then it is means danger. The bar will not remain all the time on the screen.
It is necessary to watch it once it appears. In case the bar turns read
and you are spotted then take down all those enemies who had seen you to
reduce your presence. You can also crouch and walk to avoid guards.
In middle of fight try to use Health vial to avoid much damage. The health
regenerates at slow rate. This will help you to get some time and you can
take down enemies in front of you. But if you get chance you can stand
aside somewhere and wait back for the health to recover. You can buy
health vial and add it in the inventory. On PS4 press L1 to and LB on
Xbox One to check the total amount of health in your inventory.
-=Wait for Mana to Regen=-
If you constantly use your powers your Mana will not regeneration fast
in the game. You have to ensure that you use the powers when it is needed.
There are limited resources provided in the game. When you use a power
like Far Reach, wait back and don’t use any other power instantly. The
Mana will regenerate and then you can utilize it again.
At some point you might see a lot of guards or hard to go ahead. The best
way to move is to use a distraction. Like noise or throw objects in wrong
direction. This will alert the guards and they will try to inspect it.
There are alarm clocks you can use for the same. You can also throw dead
guards in between a group for distraction.
You will get Dark Vision later in the game. It is a highly effective
ability that can help you to ensure guards position no matter how sure
you are. You might land instantly into bunch enemies and will fall. So
try to use dark vision to avoid a direct one-on-one interaction with the
Blink spell in the game can help you to instantly teleport from one place
to another. You can use this at the time of gathering collections. You
must upgrade blink and keep it as a primary ability. As you upgrade you
will get higher distance coverage in teleportation.
-=Reach the Roof=-
In case you are ambushed by guards or enemies, reaching a higher point
will help you to get some time. You can then learn enemy position and
take them down one by one.
This is a very useful in the game and important to learn. It will only be
possible after get ability to craft Bonecharm. It will cost 1 rune and you
can then go ahead to choose the traits. After unlocking you have pay Raw
Whalebone the make single Bonecharm.

Electroshock Machine puzzle solution:
The Electroshock Machine puzzle is at the end of Mission 4: The Clockwork Mansion,
when you finally meet with Kirin Jindosh. You can choose from two options. You can
kill Kirin or place him in the Electroshock Machine. If you choose the Electroshock
Machine, you have to create enough power to flip the switch next to the electric chair
Kirin is sitting in. There are two nearby terminals that you can use that list various
options such as Weaponry, Anatomy, Optics, etc. There is 11 power available and the
Electroshock Machine requires 7 -- so you need to make sure the other two panels do
not exceed 4. To simply do this, select Anatomy and Optics to have enough power.
Easy Jindosh Lock combination solution:
In Mission 6: The Dust District, you will encounter the Jindosh Lock. The Jindosh
Lock combination is randomized and different for every player and changes with each
playthrough. However, you can easily solve it every time by creating a manual save
game at the start of the mission, when talking to Meagan Foster (before killing either
of the gang bosses). Then, kill and deliver one of the gang bosses to the other. They
will give you the combination for your Jindosh Lock. Write down the combination. Then,
reload the manual saved game you previously created. Go to the Jindosh Lock and enter
the code you wrote down to unlock it and get the "Eureka" achievement. This is also
very useful during a stealth run. Use the same method, then reload the manual save
and enter the code to skip the entire mission. After opening the Jindosh Lock, the
mission will immediately end.
Stilton's Master Key location:
Shortly after Mission 7: A Crack In The Slab begins, you will receive the "Timepiece"
item that allows you to time travel. Immediately after getting the Timepiece, go to
the far end of the corridor. Switch between past and present time to get through it
undetected. You can also use it to see where enemies are in the other timeline.
Stilton's Master Key is in the room at the end of the corridor. Switch to present
time when you enter the room, crawl under the table, switch to past time, and
collect the key to get the "Under The Table" achievement.
To find all of the Sokolov paintings, look in the areas described below. Some areas
contain more than one painting. If you're having trouble, you can use the Heart to
make the search a bit easier.
-=High Overseer Campbell=-
Gain entry to the mansion's basement, which you can enter by pressing a hidden button
that is located on the wall just across from the kennel's entrance. Once inside the
basement, explore to find the painting.
-=House Of Pleasure=-
At the Golden Cat, question the art dealer to learn the combination for his safe.
You can find three paintings in the apartment: one in the safe, one in a guarded
room on the second floor, and one in the bedroom located on the third floor.
-=The Royal Physician=-
Tend to the guards on the first floor in Sokolov's house, then take the painting
they were protecting.
-=Lady Boyle's Last Party=-
At the point when you are looking for a Boyle sister, do a bit of looking around. Near
where you find the target of your search, you will also find a painting. A second
painting, meanwhile, is located on the mansion's second floor. Look for it near center
of the show room.
-=Return To The Tower=-
Look for a room with a conspicuous fireplace, on the second floor inside the tower.
The painting is hanging above that fireplace, in plain sight.
-=The Flooded District=-
A ruined building with three floors is located in the Waterfront region. Ascend to
the third floor and use the Blink spell to snag the painting before you head for
the refinery. After you clear out the Assassins' Headquarters building, look for a
chain as you are leaving. You can climb along it to find a platform on your descent.
There you will find a second painting. Then seek out a third painting in the sewers,
near the Old Port District Outskirts. It is upstairs from the area where you deal
with Granny Rags.
There are five Outsider Shrines in the game. Visit each one to obtain runes and
information pertaining to the character after whom the shrines are named.
-=High Overseer Campbell=-
Look for Granny Rags, who is located in her apartment near the balcony. Through
her back door, you'll find an alley with a shrine.
-=The Royal Physician=-
You should see a strange building, not far from Lord Pratchett's house. To access
it, use your Blink spell while positioned on Pratchett's roof. Inside the building,
you'll find a shrine.
-=Lady Boyle's Last Party=-
Not far from Boyle's Estate, you will find a (mostly) abandoned building that now is
populated by Weeper foes. Ascend to the building's upper levels to find the shrine.
-=Return To The Tower=-
In the torture chamber, look for floors that descend to the building's first floor.
Head down those stairs to reach the shrine.
-=The Flooded District=-
If you have completed sub-missions for Granny Rags and Slackjaw, you can find the
characters in the district sewers. Talk to them and then head through the door near
the furnace to find the final shrine.
At various points in the campaign, you will come across safes. Some missions have
more than one safe, and safes may open to more than one combination. Below, you will
find known combinations for the corresponding safe:

Mission 2 - 217 (kennel door)

Thief: The Dark Project Reference:
Proceed through Mission 7: The Flooded District, until you arrive at the Assassin's
Hideout location in Central Rudshore. Your overall objective at that building is to
meet with the primary target, but your approach matters. Sneak inside to avoid alerting
your enemies. Once inside, look for a training area. Two assassins are positioned near
one another, and one of them congratulates the other on a job well done. "I did not see
you approach," he comments, which is the same dialogue you might recall hearing if you
completed the stealth training tutorial in Thief: The Dark Project.
