Nosferatu Giovanni undetected
« on: July 18, 2022, 03:38:00 pm »
Has anyone ever managed to do the Giovanni mansion undetected as a Nosferatu ?

And how did you do it ?

I tried to move the guard at the entrance but throwing things doesnt actually cause him to move, only to look into that direction.

So apparently I get detected by touching him while entering and then have to start killing people simply because they are standing in the way and I cannot proceed while letting them live.

Have you tried the back door?

It was pretty easy for me to do this as a Nosferatu. The easiest way to do this is to fully upgrade Obfuscate to level 5. In this case, you will need to stealthily kill the guard who walks in the backyard and drain the guard who is standing at the back door, then you will not raise the alarm and enter the mansion without noise. In case you haven't maxed out Obfuscate that much, you can use a level 3 or 4 animalism and stealthily kill the guards in the backyard, just be sure to turn on Obfuscate of any level before doing so. Remember that from Obfuscate you can apply your disciplines while still remaining invisible.

I tried quite some time ago. I think i managed to get in through the backdoor without causing too much trouble, but the guards inside spotted me. I don't recall, however, if they could see through my obfuscate or if I was too lazy to keep the discipline running.

Okay I was apparently not clear enough that I try to not kill anyone.

Yes I have Obfuscate 5 and I use the backdoor. I dont kill the two guards there though. I try to distract the one at the door with a thrown item, but he doesnt move.

I take it that you really cannot do this without killing people.

(Which is easy with other clans)

Can you not just feed a bit on him or confuse him with Animalism?

The ravens might work but feeding doesn't stun combattants on a combat map.

I think the idea is to "ghost" without touching (much less killing) anything, Thief Dark Project style. At least that's what I tried and found out you can't really do it, he's stationary - meaning he won't investigate noises

Thanks for that information.

I had already moved on before new ideas popped up in this thread and so far I havent reached that point again in a new Nosferatu run. Just so much else going on.

With all other clans I can easily blend in and avoid killing anyone, but Nosferatu seems impossible. Once they are alarmed, they are simply standing in your way and you cannot just Obfuscate around them.

Feeding doesn't turn on the combat, unless you fail or do it in view of anyone (both if only the victim).
