    For this achievement you will need to peform an assassination without being seen prior to the act.

    More than likely you will get this on your first assassination of the merchant, as he just walks around to all the stalls. Simply walk up behind him and assassinate him and boom thats it.

    imaidiot19Pro Tip: You must have your hidden blade equipped, or you don't get the assassinate prompt. (I've heard about an idiot that figured this out after 2 hours of attempting this...lame)

    When you are about to do your first assassination just wait for the target to lean over a market stall. While he's doing this just equip the hidden blade and stab him in the back. If done correctly you should get the achievement.

    SLEWDOGDidn't seem to work...tried about 25 times to stealth but each time he stopped it ....must be a glitch

    This is possible on a couple of the assassinations.
    The first is easiest, blend as soon as the cinematic ends and just stealth assassinate him while he is lecturing one of the merchants.
    It is also possible to do this in the assassination of the doctor, the leader guy in Acre, the merchant king of Damascus and even Sibrand (the boat guy). You have to be pretty skilled but if you are really desperate just take your time and analyze the situation.
    For the doctor for example there are all these drunks breaking your disguise but you can walk around them and wait for the doctor to come to a spot where they aren't walking.
    ALSO very important. Use your memories pause menu. If you have done the investigations you will have the option(in some) to view additional information.THIS SHIT IS USEFUL!!! In the one with the scribe you can deduce his location from these info segments, in the one with the doctor it shows who his patients are and where he is going. Use these.
