Lokesh still remembers Purra, the cat from Aion, and how finding her and helping other players by spreading the information made him feel proud. Presenting precise and clear guidelines that readers can easily comprehend is the goal he strives for. That being the case, please excuse the numerous lists and tables in his articles.



  1. A

    I didn’t have the skill to open the chest. I went to buy more picklocks and came back to attempt to open the chest again… but it isn’t even pickable anymore.. it isn’t even highlighted in gold anymore in eagle vision.

  2. B

    Let yourself get killed and it is gold again.

  3. G

    It is glitched and the mission is not on my map and I haven’t done it yet.

    1. B

      It’s not glitched. It’s on the map

      1. D

        It wasn’t on the map until after I entered the investigation zone. There is a clue about the black office, but if the investigation area was supposed to be indicated it wasn’t. Why do you assume a glitch you didn’t experience is a glitch that doesn’t exist?

  4. D

    Yeah it’s pretty BS that the developers of this game caused this mission and others to require you to have the highest locksmith skill in order to beat them. You can’t get the skill until you play practically the last mission of the game! What use is the locksmith skill once I’ve beaten the game? I don’t go back and get everything else. It’s pretty pointless to keep playing. Never again will I buy AC games. Tired of them giving you the best equipment and skills AFTER you’ve completed the game. Absolutely worthless.

    1. K

      Or you can simply get good at lock picking, I picked the lv3 lock with just a lv1 picking skill. It’s not the games fault that you just suck.

  5. B

    Mission never told me how to get to the Black Office so I came here to see where it was 🙁 I agree with everyone else on how annoying it is that Ubisoft makes it so difficult for us completionists to do everything we want before completing the entire story.

    1. A

      The reason that Ubisoft didn’t tell you the location about the black office is: There is a social club mission that ask you to investigate the black office, it is the same black office with the same location in both missions.

  6. J

    You only have to complete sequence 9 to be able to obtain the highest locksmith skill.. there are 12 sequences. Also, you can buy any equipment at any point in the game. The only thing you get at the end of the game is the Sword of Eden; which is no better than any of the other golden 5 star swords.
