Lucy's Deleted Message
After The Credits
After the credits, you can look at all the computers and drawings and what not, but on Lucy's computer, there is a specific message crucial to the meaning of "The Leak." This means that there are more assassins.
When you log on to Lucy's computer by the animus bed, go to her deleted message, the first part you will read looks like an advertisement for some sort of enhancement... but in the text there are capital letters reading,
"We Will Be There Soon"
Lucy is the leak.
Destroy Market Stalls
To destroy a market stall, you need to do it grab a citizen and throw him into the stall, which is easiest to do from the side. If you have done it correctly, the market stall will collapse on top of the guy in the stall and will kill all the people around it.
1. Always lock on to your target.
2. After your lock on you just need to get not too far and not too close to your pickpocket target
3. While you're walking to your target hold the pickpocket button (you will have your hand out so don't bump into anybody, you might just steal from them or something)
4. Now that your hand is out, just keep on walking slowly until you get to the belt of the target (there is a pouch on the belt that it helps to aim for).
THERE YOU GO!!
If you've spotted a guard directly under you, lock on to him and press R and X at the same time to jump on to him and kill him.
Note: The guard must be close to you, if he was far away down Altair might not jump and kill him.
at the end
Al Mualim only attacks you if you press the attack button while he tells you of his story. If you press the button while he is speaking, he engages with you in battle. It is hard to kill him, but since you already beat the game, it shouldn't be that hard.
Defeating Al Mualim
In Al Mualims Castle you will find that he has the Artifact and has brainwashed everyone in Masyaf.
He will send the 9 people you have assassinated at you all at once, and you must kill them all. After you have killed them, Al Mualim will paralyze you with the artifact and then you will have a boring conversation. After the talk, Al Mualim will Split up into about 9 or 10 Al Mualims! You must counter the real one and the illusion will cease.
After that he will teleport to different locations in the Castle's back courtyard and all of your health will go down. Once you find him, before you attack him, throw a knife at him - otherwise, if you fail to counter him, he will just kill you in one hit. If you throw a knife at him and hit him all of your health will come back and he will not be able to kill you in one hit. Once you counter him, he will teleport again. He will do this about 3 more times. Just keep repeating until you kill him.
Jump Execution - When jumping over a guard tap X three times to do a jump kill.
Sprinting Execution - While sprinting hold b when near a guard with throwing knives to do a one hit kill with your short blade.
Easy Info Gathering
When you are told by the leader of a HQ where to gather information, all the places to get it will be in the same section of the city (poor, medium or rich). the best idea is to then climb the viewpoints in that quarter to get access to all the information spots. This helps cause it means you can avoid the time limited ones (they're tough, hate 'em!) and taking the easy ones like pickpocketing or even eavesdropping! another hint for "please assassinate these people for me" missions is to lock onto them and keep as close as possible. they don't notice you unless you run. then wait till you are out of sight of guards (top left-hand triangle is all white) and use your hidden blade.
Easy Assassination in Jerusalem
Tip for Assassins Creed for Playstation 3:
When you go to Jerusalem and do the assassination with the guards surrounding you, don't even try to fight them off. Instead, turn around and run up the ladder to get to the 2nd floor. Then a short cutscene will show your target running away and up another ladder. Hold down R1+x and run across the chandeliers and the ladder will be to the right. Run up that and another short cutscene will show your target on top of another building. Chase him down and have your wrist blade enabled. (press Right on the D-pad) Then press L1 to lock onto your target while still chasing him down. When you get close enough, it will show the word "Assassinate" for the Square button in the upper right hand side of the screen. Press it and you will complete your task. Then after another cutscene evade the guards by jumping onto building roofs, hiding, etc. Make your way over to the bureau to complete the memory.
