yeah i just held the left trigger while you arent in combat mode and when you get behind someone a button with a dagger will pop up. i got mine in the begining and around byran. also in the savannah.

I wonder if people are getting close enough? At first, you have to be almost touching the guy to assassinate. If you build up the skill, that's when you can do it from farther away.

And they have to be standing still. Mind you that if the orc or varn is on an incline, the prompt will not show all the time. And there are times you just can assassinate an enemy because either someone saw you or the guy you're trying to kill has seen you and the game glitches and he just doesn't turn around. You have to be not seen.

I did this without a potion. I've never even made a potion other than the first one. Either the game is glitching on people or folks are just doing it wrong.

A good check is that when you first get to Bayan, exit the town. Past the mayor's stable house, stick to the right along the rock face and go towards the shore (south). There will be three Varn there- two keeping watch and one peeing against the wall. You should be able to assassinate all 3 without a problem.

Ya i have 7 deathstrikes now but ill have to re make my game since im in chapter 2 and all my varns are dead. I just recently got the Invis spell and i found a few camps with Varns still left but they are all moving around so im screwed on this playthru

I got most of mine from killing the guy who's taking a leak (over and over) by the 'Hooks' icon in chapter 1.
