Blueprint upgrade locations:|
Search the indicated locations to find all blueprint upgrades. Blueprints allow you to upgrade gadgets. Once you find a blueprint, take it to Piero to be able to purchase the upgrade for the gadget. Note: Some blueprints will appear twice throughout the campaign, but they can only be discovered once. Thus, once a blueprint is found, it will not appear a second time. Additionally, do not forget to use the Heart to help you locate collectibles.
Outsider Shrine locations:
Search the indicated locations to find all five Outsider Shrines, which provide you with a rune and information on the mysterious Outsider character:
1.High Overseer Campbell: Climb up to the balcony to meet Granny Rags in her apartment, then open the door to find the path behind her house. In the back alley is an Outsider Shrine.
2.The Royal Physician: Near Lord Pratchett's house is an eerie building. Get on Pratchett's roof and use Blink to reach the uncanny apartment, then drop down to get inside and find an Outsider Shrine.
3.Lady Boyle's Last Party: Early in the mission, across from Boyle's Estate is an old abandoned building with several levels full of Weeper enemies. Defeat the Weepers to reach the upper levels and find the Outsider Shrine.
4.Return To The Tower: The Outsider Shrine is inside the tower's torture chamber. Locate the stairs going down on the first floor. Go down the stairs to find the shrine.
5.The Flooded District: You must have completed missions for Granny Rags and Slackjaw earlier in the game to unlock the final Outsider Shrine. At the beginning of the mission, you can find Granny Rags with Slackjaw in the sewers of the district. Talk to them both, then use the door near the furnace to reach the shrine.
Easy The Art Of The Steal achievement:
Start the "House Of Pleasure" mission, and visit Slackjaw. You will be told by some thugs near the Distillery that Slackjaw wants to talk. Enter the Distillery, and speak with Slackjaw. He will ask you to go to Dr. Galvani to check up on Slackjaw's inside man. Once you arrive at the building, you will find the inside man is dead. Pick up the note near his dead body, and take
it back to Slackjaw. Slackjaw will then reward you with a key to the Golden Cat, and also give you an alternate method for neutralizing the Pendletons if you get the combination to the Art Dealer's safe. Before getting the combination, go to an alley past the Wall Of Light on the Boulevard, and turn left to find a lady being harassed by thugs. Kill the thugs, and the woman will give you a key to the Art Dealer's house. Then, travel to the Golden Cat to find the Art Dealer strapped to an electric chair. Threaten him by shocking
him repeatedly using the glowing lever, and he will tell you the combination to his safe. You will then have the combination to the safe, and the key to the Art Dealer's apartment. The entrance is right next to Griff, and near the Distillery. Go upstairs to the safe, and enter "696" as the code to gain access to the safe and get the "The Art Of The Steal" achievement. Inside the safe is a rune, some elixirs, and many items that can be sold.

Thief: The Dark Project reference:
In Mission 7: The Flooded District, reach the Assassin's Hideout in Central Rudshore. It is the large building in the bottom corner that you must go to meet your primary target for the mission. Sneak inside so you do not disturb the assassins. Continue ahead to find a small stealth training area, where one assassin is talking to another about the basics of stealth. The assassin's dialogue is a reference to Garret's stealth training tutorial in Thief: The Dark Project by Looking Glass Studios. The dialogue in Dishonored is "For your next trial, you must remain unseen. Stay in the shadow and avoid the light. Cross to the other side of the room without attracting notice. Very
good, I did not see you approach. Now, attempt a transversal." The dialogue in Thief: The Dark Project is "You must learn how to move unseen, stay in the shadows, avoid the light. The indicator on your screen will tell you how visible you are. Try to reach the top of the platform without being seen. Well done, I did not see you approach."
Completing the game without killing anyone:
Completing the game without killing anyone is not easy and requires a lot of patients, as you will need to avoid being seen. Completing missions using non-lethal actions will limit your options, but reward you with a lower Chaos level, different ending, and multiple achievements. Make sure you do not kill any primary targets or tutorial guards during the non-lethal playthrough or else you will wipeout the progress you made. Thus, it is recommended you save your game often, and in multiple slots. You can be caught without penalty -- just escape and hide until the alert level goes down. When sneaking, only use non-lethal takedowns. Choke guards instead of stabbing them, and be careful when hiding unconscious bodies. While sneaking, use Lean and Dark Vision to get a good view of the environment and enemies while remaining hidden. Travel in high place, and use Blink in guarded areas to jump from one hiding spot to the next. Remain in Stealth mode, and use Possession to discover new routes, or scout ahead of your position. Make sure you remain alert and aware by studying each area well. You can find optional entrances into guarded areas, or
side-paths that will lead you to new NPCs. Listening to conversations and reading notes can give you clues to unlocking new routes, or revealing nonlethal options to neutralizing targets. Listen for codes, rumors, and more. Do not rush ahead; spend time maneuvering and exploring each area rigorously, as you maybe be surprised at what you sometimes discover. In each mission, there is a non-lethal option for neutralizing your primary target. These options are usually difficult, and always require talking to a character you can find roaming the area. Before neutralizing enemies, search the neighborhood carefully, and try finding any optional quests that are available. These can be easy to find with some simple exploration, but can also require completion of several side-quests to reach. It is also recommended you use the following upgrades and equipment to make it easier to complete the game without killing anyone:
-=Supernatural abilities and enhancements=-
Agility: Upgrade Agility to Level 2 to increase your speed and decrease fall damage, which really helps when you are using roofs and high places a lot. You will also unlock a double jump that makes climbing up to high vantage points easier.
Blink: Upgrade Blink to increase the teleporting distance. This ability is easy to upgrade early in the game, as it only costs three runes.
Dark Vision: This ability allows you to view living things through walls, and to see their cone of vision. It is an essential ability, but you can wait until later in the game to upgrade it.
Possession: This is a very powerful ability that allows Corvo to reach a lot of places he normally could not otherwise. He can possess a fish or rat to get through narrow metal grates, or possess a guard to move them out of his path. It is recommended you upgrade this ability as soon as possible.
-=Equipment and blueprint upgrades=-
Boot Stealth: You must first find the hidden blueprint to unlock this upgrade, which is listed in our "Blueprint upgrade locations". Its first level makes running and walking silent. Its second level allows you to sprint silently. Thus, if you are caught, running silently will make escaping easier.
Crossbow: The Crossbow is the only weapon you will need when trying to complete the game without killing anyone. Upgrade its accuracy, reload speed, and anything else you can afford periodically to help increase the chance of your Sleep Bolts hitting their mark.
Mask Optics: This is not entirely essential, but it is useful for scouting locations. Upgrading it will allow you to zoom in further, and to eavesdrop on conversations from afar. It is great for eavesdropping without exposing your position.
Sleep Bolt: This is the only way to knock out guards at long range. Upgrade the bolts to make them useful during combat (just make sure to hide the bodies). You can purchase as many as ten Sleep Bolts from Piero's Workshop. Try keeping a full stock on hand in case of any urgent situations that may arise.
Strong Arms: This charm allows you to choke enemies faster, leaving you exposed for a shorter amount of time.
Swift Shadow: This charm gives you the ability to move faster while in Stealth mode.
Undertaker: This charm allows you to carry corpses at a slightly faster rate.
Welcoming Host: This charm allows you to possess white rats for a longer amount of time. It works well when used in conjunction with the Albinos charm.
There are safes that are found during missions that require a certain combination in order to open them. There are clues somewhere in the level, either hidden nearby or gotten from doing a sidequest of some kind, that give out the combination for the safe. Each safe contains items that Corvo can
use or give him a high number of coins.
The safe in Dishonored can be found in the sewers section of the mission, which is the second half after escaping from the prison.
-=Safe locations and combinations=-
51 - Dishonored - You will find this safe in the sewers past the area where Corvo gets
his gear back.
287 - High Overseer Campbell - The safe in Dr. Galvani's residence - Dr. Galvani's map.
217 - High Overseer Campbell - The locked kennel door in the Overseer's base - Kennel map.
203 - High Overseer Campbell - Barracks safe in the Overseer's base - Backyard map.
879 - House of Pleasure - The safe in the artist's residence - Artist's residence map.
473 - The Royal Physician - Practchett's safe - North End map.
294 - The Royal Physician - The safe behind the painting in the wrecked building where the prisoner
pen is outside the Sokolov estate.
935 - Return to the Tower - Lord Regent Hiram Burrows' safe in his private quarters in Dunwall Tower.
Quiet Makeshift Grenades:
You can't use a grenade without attracting unwanted attention, but there are other solutions. Place two spring razors in an empty bottle and toss that at a group of enemies for a grenade-like effect, or place them in a whale oil canister for the same purpose.
In the mission, Flooded District, Corvo will come across an assassin-in-training and an instructor in Daud's base. The dialogue for stealth training will be reminiscent to Garret's stealth tutorial in Thief: Dark Project by Looking Glass Studios. These two characters are enemies; be sure to remember that when you encounter them.
Put two spring Razors in an empty bottle or whale oil canister, to create a silent grenades that generate the same impact as the regular grenade but without drawing much attention.
