Objective 1: Free Ysabella

There are two clear choices to start this job – enter from the loading area or head to the underground passage below Market Street. We’ll begin with the loading area and remember you’ll need to be aggressive in this job in order to get all the Thieving Challenges.

The Distract 4 Threats challenge is easy. You’ll see an Eelbiter trying to crack a safe. Just fire four blunt arrows around him to distract him and it’s yours. Job done.

Now sneak up on the fool and steal his three money purses. Alternatively use a Sawtooth arrow and your blackjack to get one of four combat takedowns and grab his money when he’s on the floor. Loot the room and don’t forget the wall safe the Eelbiter was trying to crack.

Head north and you’ll soon come across three more Eelbiters. One patrols the balcony, another is trying to open a door and the third is standing in the north doorway. Take out the balcony guard first as no one will hear him go down when you hit him with an Broadhead arrow and your blackjack.

Now the guy to the west messing with the door. Look out for broken glass, pick his pocket and crack him with the blackjack. That’s your third combat takedown.

go through the locked west door that the Eelbiter was messing with and loot the room. Head back to the north room where you’ll see the other Eelbiter talking to a caged bird. Wait for him to move to the west wall before doing the Broad arrow/blackjack combo takedown. That’s it, you’ve completed the 4 Combat Takedown‘s challenge.

Loot the room and head down the stairs to the east. There are another two Eelbiters to contend with here, so wait for them to split up and take one out at a time, making sure to hide the first body if you want to remain undetected. Loot the area and take City Heritage Plaques (15/16) – Watch Station off the wall.

Go through the east door and you’ll see an Eelbiter searching the room. Blackjack that fool, loot the room including the chest for Whiteridge’s Duty (5/6) – The Porcelain Lady. That is the last of the Collectible Loot Items on this job.

Now you need to head to the basement where you’ll find the cells – make sure you take the key from the upstairs office. Head left in the basement, open a cell and you’ll find a poppy. There are Eelbiters in the cells but no loot so you only really need to find Ysabella. Her cell is on the west side.

Objective 2: Escape the Watch Station with Ysabella

Unlock Ysabella’s cell and head towards the exit. Two Eelbiters will head to the basement so prepare yourself and take them out with headshots from the Broad arrow. It’s the most efficient way.

Grab Ysabella and carry her out of the cell to the door to the north. Pick the lock and smell freedom.
