Mission #1 – One Last Fight
There are 2 contracts in the first mission, One Last Fight. Where as contracts are normally picked up at Black Market shops, this mission doesn’t have a Black Market shop. You can find both contracts on Billie’s desk aboard the Dreadful Wale. The contracts are: “Burn the White Hound” and “Industrial Espionage”. They both take place within the Albarca Bathouse. ^
The contracts on Billie’s desk next to the Travel log. Press ‘f’ to interact and make sure both contract objectives are toggled on using ‘control’.
Contract: Burn the White Hound
Reward: 450 coins
Description: “An Eyeless hag stole my poor Milky. He’s white as whalebone but riddled with disease. It breaks my old heart to ask this of you, but if you find my Milky, please put him out of his misery and burn his remains. Save him from those cursed Eyeless, and save Karnaca from another plague!”
In the Albarca Baths there is a cage of three hounds, one of which is white. You can find this cage on the second floor at the back of the bathouse where the gang leader Jeanette Lee will be.
By the door to the dog room is a red button that releases the door. You can either kill the dogs with projectiles through the door or unlock it and fight them. Either way kills ‘Milky’ (the white hound) and pick up his body.
You will then need to take his body to the furnace on the same floor. Go out the door oposite the stair case in the room with the dogs into a corridor and head down to the end where you will find the furnaces. Open the furnace and put Milky in it. Close it and press the red button and the contract will complete.
Contract: Industrial Espionage
Reward: 450 coins
Description: “Those thugs at the Albarca make potions and bonecharms upstairs. Their liquor is vile, but it sells for good coin and we’re losing punters to them by the day. Bring us the rat liquor recipe before our brewery goes out of business, and make sure to destroy their stock while you’re at it!”
On the second floor of the Albarca baths is a brewery/bar area, towards the front of the building. In the room is one Eyeless who has the key to the drawer in which the recipe required is. You will need to eliminate him and steal the key and then loot the drawer, next to the bone charm drawer. Pick up the recipe.
After collecting the recipe, smash all the Plague Spirit bottles in the crate and below the crate, behind the bar. After that the contract will complete. There are 9 bottles.
Mission #2 – Follow the Ink
There are 4 contracts avaliable in the second mission, Follow the Ink. The contracts can be found on the wall at the Black Market shop. The Black Market shop is near the Calibron plaza, below the street with the broken down carriage.
Make sure all contracts are equipped so the objective markers show up.
Contract: Kidnap the Bartender
Reward: 550 coins
Description: “The bartender at the Spector Club is a lying, heartless snake and needs to be taught a lesson. I’m going to bury him in my garden with the sunflowers, let him think about his mistake for a day or two. If you want to make some easy money, stash him in the crate I left on the rooftops near the Red Camellia.”
The bartender is behind the bar on the first floor of the Spector Club. The Spector Club is private, I would recommend getting an Eyeless tattoo from the Red Camelia on this mission as two of the contracts are in the Spector Club. The tattoo will allow you access to the Club after knocking on the door and talking to the bouncer.
After accessing the Spector Club the bartender will be obvious. Knock him unconscience and deal with the rest of the Eyeless. Pick his body up and go to the Dentist roof top where there is a blue crate. The Dentist building is near the Red Camelia and is a red, tall building with a broken wind turbine on top.
Drop the bartender in the crate, alive and the contract will complete.
Contract: Death to the Mime
Reward: 300 coins
Description: “I’ll split the insurance coin with whoever arrange the death of Georgie Botello, also known as “The Cyrian Mime.” He performs most days on Duchess Lisandra Avenue, which is not too far from Dead Man’s Bluff, an infamous suicide spot here in Upper Cyria. Be smart, make it look convincing and we have a deal.”
You can find the Mime performing to, two aristocrats by the taxidermy shop. Knock him unconscience and make sure to remain out of combat as that will fail the contract. Carry the Mimes unconscience body to Dead Man’s Bluff down by the canal.
Once down by Dead Man’s Bluff, throw the Mime over the edge to his death and the contract will complete. Be careful not to be seen by the worker next to the skiff as this will fail the contract. Either be stealthy or elimanate him.
Contract: Workplace Harassment
Reward: 400 coins
Description: “I work at Dolores Michaels’ bank, and a certain “customer” is tormenting me. Threatens and blackmails me she does, nails dead bloodflies to my door when I don’t pay. I’ve no idea who she works for, but if you follow her quietly I bet she’ll lead you right to them. Kill her and her business associates to earn your stipend.”
This contract is one when you are meant to tail the person to there associates. This however can be down without tailing allow tho if you wish to tail the Eyeless woman feel free to. She will head to a man out the front of the Spector Club.
Easier Method (doesn’t envolve tailing):
The other option is easier as it doesn’t involve tailing the woman. Simply kill the woman at the bank then proceed to kill the business associate out the front of the Spector Club which will be sitting on the bench. It has to be down this way round as he will not spawn unless she is encountered at the Bank.
Once both Eyeless are killed the contract will complete.
Contract: The Missing Brother
Reward: 550 coins
Description: “I was hoping to meet my brother Alberto near Malveros Victory Plaza this morning, but he was nowhere to be found! His assistant at the dental office mentioned something about a broken jaw, and exotic cocktails at the Spector Club. If you find him, please take him to my cabin alongside the canal.”
The missing brother can be found on the top floor of the Spector Club, in the draining room. Pull the lever above his bed and the blood will be returned into him and he will be able to be picked up by you to carry him the the shack by the canal.
Placing his body on the floor in the shack will complete the contract.
Mission #3 – The Bank Job
There are 4 contracts avaliable in the third mission, The Bank Job. The contracts can be found in the same Black Market shop as in mission 2. The Black Market shop is near the Calibron plaza, below the street with the broken down carriage.
Contract: Rags to Riches to Rags
Reward: 500 coins
Description: “Overheard at the Spector Club: someone quite drunk, bragging loudly. “When I first came to Karnaca, I only had 315 coin to my name – and today I opened my own lockbox at the bank!” Three cocktails later, it was revealed that said lockbox is next to some journalist’s and contains a precious gemstone. Get me that gem!”
For this contract you will need to break into the lowest level of the bank. This level can be reached from the elevator stairs, behind the wall of light in the Elevator Vault room. Go down the stairs and theres a room with an electrified floor. Proceed to the area off to the left where you will find lockboxes. You need to look for the lockbox labelled Morgan Yu.
The code is 315.
Inside is the gemstone needed to complete the contract.
Contract: Quiet as a Mouse
Reward: 900 coins
Description: “Meryl Jennett has an appointment with the Director of the Bank tonight. She plans to store her most precious belongings there, one of which is an infamous address book. We need you to copy down page 125 without raising suspicion – that means no getting caught, and no harming bank personnel!”
For this contract you will have to make it to the top floor (level 3 going by elevator number) of the Bank and into the main office of the bank directors office. For this contract you will have to remain undected and without harming any of the guards or civilians within the Bank. I recommend using the Poppy Tincture (can be bought for 800 coins at the Black Market or gotten from following the pharmacy objective markers) and entering through the top floor entrance for this.
Just make sure not to knockout or kill any people that are sleeping. Don’t wake any either. Make it to the office and go to the book on the table by Meryl Jennett. Press ‘f’ to interact and copy down page 125. Then proceed to escape without being detected. The guards outside the Bank do not count to harming or being detected for the contract.
Following guides for “the Perfect Crime” and “Party Crasher” may help with remaining undected, while getting to the office and leaving the Bank without being seen.
Contract: The Art Connoisseur
Reward: 150 coins
Description: “An exquisite painting by Duke Abele himself is currently locked up on a delivery boat in Upper Cyria. Such a masterpiece deserves to be cherished by someone who can fully appreciate it’s worth, not bought or sold or traded away for a few lousy bonecharms. I’m offering a substantial rewards to whoever steals it for me.”
For this contract you will need to steal the painting off the boat in the canal. The boat has a locked door which you can either find the key for or use Foresight to place a Displace marker inside the boat. The key can be found on the dead body underneath the boat, you will be forced to get the key if you are playing OG+.
Simply steal the painting and the contract will complete.
Contract: Pickpocket’s Delight
Reward: 250 coins
Description: “Quick errand for the talented pickpocket. There’s an Elite Guard stationed on Cadmus Abele plaza here in Upper Cyria. He has a note attached to his belt that he’s planning to deliver tonight. Do me a favor and steal the note without him or anyone else noticing. If they catch you, you ain’t getting paid!”
For this contract you will need to remain undetected. The task is to pickpocket one of the guards with the letter out the front of the Bank. He is in the metal guard station towards the street side. You can sneak down the hatch in the roof of the guard statio and pickpocket him then get out. Make sure after completeing the contract to remain undected or you fail the contract, even after completing it.
Mission #4 – The Stolen Archive
There are 3 contracts in the fourth mission, The Stolen Archive. The contracts can be found on the wall of the Black Market down at the end of the street out the front of the Royal Conservatory, the opposite end to which you start the mission.
The Black Market is in this corner building.
Contract: Alvaro and the Abbey
Reward: Black Bonecharm
Description: “I have good reason to believe the Abbey of the Everyman is comitting unspeakable crimes within the Royal Conservatory. If you’re as fond of them as I am, kill every last Blind Sister and Overseer except Brother Cardoza. Leave him in one of his “musical chairs” and I’ll deal with him myself.”
This contract can be very time consuming. This is because you have to kill every Overseer and Sister of the Orcular Order on the map, expect Alvaro. Theres not much advice I can give other than shove Alvaro’s unconscience body into the chair early, killing all Overseers in your path. This is because when you kill the last Overseer or Sister, the contract will complete if he is already in the chair.
The chair can be found in the basement of the Conservatory. Some Overseers I would say are most misable are the three in one of the outskirt buildings, near the mission start and the one sleeping in the hammock on the ground floor. Other than that happy hunting.
Contract: Pilfer the Prophecies
Reward: Black Bonecharm
Description: “Sister Rosewyn keeps a detailed record of her prophetic visions. Rumor has it she knows every secret in the Isles: Murder, treason, love affairs… that kind of information could turn me into a very powerful lady. I’ll give all my bonecharms to whoever manages to infiltrate the Royal Conservatory and steal that book.”
This contract can be done very easily. Just head deep into the Royal Conservatory, where at the back is the broken elevator. The elevator is stuck between the second and third floor. Access it from either and pick up the book, from within, and the contract will complete.
Contract: A Risky Wager
Reward: Black Bonecharm
Description: “I abandoned my apartment last night because of the Abbey’s wretched quarantine. In my haste I left a precious relic behind, but I doubt anyone has seized it, considering how well-protected it is. In fact, I’m offering good coin to anyone who is clever enough to bypass the defenses and live to tell the tale!”
This is probably the easiest contract in the game. Go into the building with all the trip wires all over the room and disarm them all however you want. Then go to the upper area and loot the safe and the contract will complete. The building can be found out the front of the Conservatory and near the mission start, just left of the bonfire.
