Hmm... that short? Oh well.

 

So, can't rewire the fence so that means there's another way? OK, so long as I know, I don't mind searching around this area more for another way through.

 

thks

I thought you could also rewire electric wall so they zap guards instead of you? But I may remember that wrong. In order to deal with an electric wall, try to look for cables coming out of it. You can usually see where they lead and either rewire them (you should have an inventory tab somewhere in the menu, but I don't have the game installed right now, so I cannot look) or disable the windmill thing that powers the wall. Alternatively, you could possess a guard and walk through inside their body. Maybe you can find small animals that you can possess and use small vents to get through. As you can see, there are several ways to deal with electric walls, but if you haven't played for a long time, it is quite difficult to start in the next to last mission. It also depends if you are playing as Corvo or as Emily, since they both have different powers.

In order to not get caught so easily, it is recommended to use the Blink ability a LOT. you can quickly get from cover to cover that way and thus avoid being seen. Remember, that Dishonored is not like Thief: shadows won't hide you very well. The main strategy to avoid being seen is by breaking line of sight. For this your Special Vision (forgot the name) is very helpful as you can see guards without being seen.

If you play without powers, it is more difficult to avoid guards. Lean around corners for a short time in order to check for guards and only move when they turn their back.

Thats where the Death of the outsider DLC partly fills the gap (and its dirt cheap now)

Yeah. I'm finishing Death of the Outsider at the moment, and, it's pretty great. 

 

Regading your playthrough of Dishonored 2, if you don't remember the former missions very well, why not start from the beginning again? TBH, i personally hate getting back to a game i stopped playing months or years ago, and then trying to find into it again. But then, i have a pretty bad memory, so, if yours is better, then you may not have any issues with that.

It's pretty great BUT that kind of story NEEDS an entire game for itself......not an expansion :(

Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

Indeed, I was left wanting after both. At least with DS1 we had the Knife of Dunwall and the Brigmore witches (the other dlc packs were kinds pointless, void Walker's Arsenal and Dunwall City Trials)

TBH, the biggest issue i have with it is that i just can't identiy myself with the protagonist too much. Rather seems like a gathering of discrimination stereotypes (female, black, lesbian). Typical for games or movies these days. At least in Dishonored 2, you could choose a female and male character.

 

Gameplay is great, though, so...

OK, thanks all. I'll check for another way round and while I'm doing it, check out the wires and the windmill.

 

I'm right out of those rune bone charm things so only got a little 'see guards through walls feature' left.

 

Still can't see any inventory of special objects nor of some readables. In Artemis mansion I took a note off a door saying Captain Cordero locked it and he'll be in dining room if needed. I killed/strangled everyone there but no key. So I had to reload the game several gamesaves earlier just to check the note again! I did find the key eventually. But the readable went into a black hole somewhere. Maybe it's in the same place as the rewire tools. I did recently discover blink upgrades I didn't know I had! I assumed if you bought an upgrade then it worked automatically. Looks like I won't get the hang of this game before it's all over!

I completed the palace level and escaped back to the boat but the girl in the boat doesn't accept me but simply speaks generically, and there's no objective marker over her. Looking back I see the marker is to the palace so looks like although I escaped the palace it didn't tick off the objective. I've left it alone for a few  days in disgust but now I'm looking to go back into the palace and come out again a different route see if that fixes it. If anyone knows about this bug and a fix then let me know.

 

[EDIT: Ignore the above. The objective says: escape palace and rendevous with meagan foster in the boat which I did. But when I reload an earlier save I now notice there's a smaller box at the side adding 'at the king's dock'. So she moves to a different dock. (but only if you go there, if you go to the old dock then she's still there!)]
