    What Ebon stated is a good guide for the first part of the assassination. The achievement doesn't unlock, however, until you go to the region unlocked after the first attempt.

    Strategy is the same though, you will have to get through Robert's men. Robert will only come in after you dispose of them.

    Tip for people who want Disciple of the Creed achievement: If you find yourself not at full health, run around the battle area. Both Robert and his men are idiots who don't know the advantage of cutoffs, they just run after you and can never overtake you. ;p

    A good tip to save yourself battle time is to grip Robert and throw him. Once he's thrown down, switch to assassin's blade and jump him. That should get you both the Robert and Disciple achievements (if other targets taken with full health bar as well) with minimal fuss.

    One last tip: Stay away from the edges of the battle area. Those memory errors apply only to you and can be fatal if your opponents somehow draw you through, forcing you to start the battle over.

    Good luck!

    FoolsAndKingsRunning around (to build up health) worked a treat for this and the final few battles when needed. +1

    Yurgi WinduDisciple of the creed has nothing to do with having a full health bar. Read the guides for the achievement it is for killing your target only after doing all other missions in that memory first.

    You don't actually get this achievement after the fight in Damascus because:

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    Rather, you fight Robert de Sable in a new area you can only get to from the kingdom. Once you get there you fight through a gauntlet of soldiers and Templars before finally reaching him.

    The fight is two-fold. First you have to fight his Templars. Once you win, you can fight him. You unlock the achievement after the next couple scenes.

    Also, disregard what Wayans said about the health bar. If you reach full sync before finishing each memory block, you'll get:

    Assassin's CreedDisciple of the CreedThe Disciple of the Creed achievement in Assassin's Creed worth 41 pointsAssassinate all your targets with a full DNA bar.

    You don't actually need full heath at the end of every battle in order to get the achievement.

    Follow your map marker to the southwest district. Blend in with the group of scholars. Once you are inside, just stand with the crowd and watch.

    Once the funeral is over, prepare for battle. You're going to have to kill a lot of Robert's guard just to reach him. If you are proficient with the Hidden Blade counter kill, now is an excellent time to use it.

    Once you've dispatched enough of Robert's men, dispose of Robert in any manner you see fit.

    Once you've viewed the rather interesting cutscene, just make your way back to the Assassin's Bureau for the achievement.

    olde fortran 77You don't get this achievement after the funeral because, well, "spoiler alert" if I explain why. And the Pannerup's comment is correct. You don't get the achievement when you return to the bureau. You get it when you actually kill de Sable.
    The strategy is workable, however.

    Octobot Superolde fortran 77 is correct. You don't get this achievement for completing the "kill" at the funeral. Rather, you'll get it when you complete the memory that comes after the two blue memories (the extra one that's not usually there).
