Nice walkthrough, any chance you can add any information on where certain animals spawn to help people complete their hunting maps?

Also you should put the locations of the delivery request side mission givers, this seems too have given some people some trouble.
Perhaps adding the recipes for the crafted items might be beneficial too.

Already thought of that and it's coming in the next update! Thanks for your feedback!

One of the better walkthroughs I've seen on the site.

Minor thing: In section 6 (Clubs), for Frontiersman Challenges II, you state in the Hints and Tips section that you will automatically get the Dive into water from 50 meters challenges by completing the constraints for Sequence 6, Memory 4. It's actually possible to dive from a lower level. I got 100% on that mission when I played it, but didn't unlock the 50 meter dive until after the game, when I went to actually complete those club challenges.

EDIT: Same page, Boston Brawlers Hints and Tips section. You should specify that you need to do it at Notoriety level three if you want the Jager Bomb achievement, as you currently only state "Maintain your same notoriety level", but it is possible to find them at level 1 (possibly incognito, but definitely level 1)

EDIT 2: Page 8 (Online Multiplayer). None of the online achievements actually require the Online Pass for the game. Credit to LitaOsiris for finding the following/explaining:

Q: What advantages do I have from activating or buying the Uplay Passport?
A: The Uplay Passport in Assassin's Creed® III only affects the multiplayer component of the game. With it, you will receive a unique multiplayer skin and be able to purchase abilities, perks, streaks and items past level 10.

Q: What part of the Multiplayer can I play without a Uplay Pasport?
A: If you choose to play without a Uplay Passport, you will not been able to buy anything past level 10 but you will still be able to play the game with other players and earn experience and credits.

Even if the Abstergo credits system is restricted, the players can still use the monetization and use Erudito credits to purchase Multiplayer items

EDIT 3: (although new post so I know it's seen)
For luring the dog three times (Thief Challenges), it's a lot faster to fast travel to the harbor in Monmouth, and run to the location in the picture. There is always two guards with a dog there (or in the area, if you took a while). Throw the bait, and once the dog is distracted, fast travel back to the harbor. Rinse and repeat, two minutes tops. http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/100/dogsld.jpg/sr=1
I take no credit for this method: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/621796-assassins-creed-iii/64...

EDIT 4: The links in Section 6 for the Hunting Club maps do not work. Links directly to the text files on GameFAQs from external sites are not allowed.

EDIT 5: Your solutions for the New York Magic Lanterns (bottom of page 4) all have the bottom image and the left image reversed.

You cannot go higher then level 10 without a uPlay passport, as I just tested it with another xbox with another account. Implementing the rest of your notes though. Thanks for your feedback

As said before, you cannot level up past level 10 without a uPlay passport. Therefore you will need a uPlay passport to get the level 20-achievement. Also, I stated "If you rented/bought the game used, there is a free trial of 3 days which should be enough to gain all of these"

I'll add it in, with credit to you for pointing it out.

Interesting, the way that was worded it looked like you only couldn't buy things above level 10 without the Passport, but could still rank up. I guess that's wrong.

And all I was asking was that you reword the 50m dive section just slightly so it doesn't read along the lines of "complete this constraint, and you'll definitely have it" and instead be more "you're likely to get it while completing this constraint". Minor pedantic thing laugh

I also eventually noticed your Boston fast travel Magic Lanterns have the same issue as the New York ones (unless you fixed them as well).

I do not fix the Boston ones but I will do tomorrow (10pm here, almost time for bed laugh). Also, good addition for the 40 or 50 meter dive, didn't think about it like that. It might be a bug for some gamers (like Encyclopedia of the Common Man). I'll add that in too.

Have a good one!

The list of requirements for The Angry Chef in Sequence 6 are wrong. You must get FIVE stealth/quiet assassinations, not three.

Since the site redesign, all text in the walkthrough is showing as underlined for me, just thought you should know as it makes it a bit more difficult to read.

Personally, I can't change the coding, but I'm sure Rich is already aware of the issue (the WT-managers and the WT-team are) and it will be fixed soon

Syncing the Animus
To sync the animus, you will need to find 10 pivots.
I think this is not correct.

There are 12 pivots total.
You get 3 pivots at epilogue's end.

This means you have to find (12 - 3 =) 9 pivots.

Last DLC page has been written, but one video needs to be included. I'll be recording and uploading this tomorrow.

Edit 11.06.2013;
The last DLC page is finished, but is awaiting publishing due to some formatting issues. In the meanwhile I noticed I never finished my hunting maps (for which I apoligize) and I will finish those this week. If there is still something that needs to be added in or changed, feel free to send me a PM or comment on this topic
