Assassin's Creed III Remastered Walkthrough

7. ACIII: Homestead Missions

Homestead Missions

Homestead Missions are all found on the Davenport Homestead. They are incredibly important to do, and I'd highly recommend that you complete them the second they become available. As you gain new Artisans, you'll unlock important crafting materials, as well as upgrades for Connor. These missions will increase your overall synchronisation percentage greatly.

There are a total of 14 people that (eventually) live on the Homestead. The guide below will breakdown the missions by Artisan. If you are unsure of where you are for an Artisans's progress, checking the DNA Tracker will give you information about what mission you are on for that person, and the unlock requirements for that mission.

Luckily none of these missions have optional objectives. There are 34 missions in total. As these missions are very straightforward, I won't provide a step-by-step walkthrough. (Though let me know in the forum if you want a step-by-step guide.)

Achilles Missions

  • Training Begins. This triggers soon after completing Godfrey & Terry's River Rescue mission. This mission will introduce you to Robert Faulkner. At the house, you'll learn about the Ledger.
  • Encyclopedia of the Common Man. Unlocks after completing Sequence 5. This mission will run concurrently with the other Achilles missions, and will most likely be completed after finishing his other missions. All information about completing the Encyclopedia of the Common Man can be found further down this page.

Encyclopedia of the Common Man

The table below provides you with all of the possible actions that an Artisan can perform. You will need to scan every Artisans/group performing three different activities. I ran into an issue where completing Lance first would then make Godfrey & Terry (The Lumberers) harder to complete. The Lumberers were the last to complete for me. Just stick at it, and follow them around. Eventually, you'll get an action that you can scan.

If you need to find out if a person is performing an action that you can scan, use Eagle Vision. They'll be highlighted in gold, meaning that the action they are performing is scannable.
