Community Tips:


A Hidden Blade encourages you to go off of the quest path and try different things to find your way.  It may be tempting to think that one class has an advantage, but all classes can complete this quest.


Be sure to talk to everyone you see to figure out one of the many potential ways forward.


The combat is no slouch, either, so bring some potions!
