Introduction: The Dunwall City Trials DLC gives you a series of difficult challenges to playthrough in a style based on everything from combat, to stealth or speed. They will test your abilities as an assassin, as well as your luck and perseverance, because despite how perfect you may be on any given level, it will not always be perfect enough.

Normal Trials: Initially, you must play through 10 normal difficulty trials, giving you a small taste of what is to come, while probably testing your patience quite a bit as well. During this time you will want to grab the collectibles for Mrs. Pilsen's Remorse as well as a few achievements that have special requirements, such as beating the train in Train Runner for Assassin vs. Machine, singlehandedly defeating 13 waves of enemies in Back Alley Brawl for By My Hand Alone, getting a 150m+ drop assassination in Kill Cascade for Long Way Down, Time Management for a perfect Bend Time Massacre/Kill Chain run, Natural Talent for completing Mystery Foe using no supernatural powers, Daredevil for completing all special jumps in Bonfires in one run, and finally Headhunter for 100% headshot accuracy during Assassin's Run. While these can be finished on Expert as well, it is highly recommended you get them out of the way on Normal.

Expert Trials: As you two star (or three star) some of the trials, they will unlock an Expert version which has added parameters, making the trial more difficult. Of the 6 trials, only Burglar has an associated achievement (Rare Collector), which must be completed on Expert. Aside from that, constant practice will be needed for most/all of the trials in order to three star them for the Void Star achievement, granted you have also 3-starred all of the normal trials. Once you have that out of the way, you're done with this DLC.

Achievements:
Mrs. Pilsen's Remorse - 30
You found Emily's doll hidden in each of the 10 challenges

Each challenge has a single doll to find, and it can be found on either the Normal or Expert variation. Once you have the doll you can quit back to the challenge menu.

You can find a text guide for all of the dolls HERE.


Void Star - 50
You completed all Normal and Expert challenges with a 3-Star rating

In order to unlock Expert challenges, you must first complete the normal version of that challenge with at least a 2-star rating.

xK Marcus has some video guides for a couple of the challenges, HERE.

By My Hand Alone - 15
You made it to Wave 13 in Back Alley Brawl Killing all combatants personally

You must kill all enemies on all 13 waves of Back Alley Brawl. They must not be finished off via suicide (hitting a whale oil tank), or killed by any other enemies in any way.

You can look HERE for a guide by Kohbo, or HERE for tips from Mr Buds.


Assassin Vs. Machine - 15
You completed Train Runner before the train arrives at the station

In order to even complete Train Runner, you need to shoot for about a 36 second completion time(though it varies*), and in order to beat the train, you need to finish about a second/second and a half faster. Do not worry if you are really close to finishing and you hear the trains brakes stop, as there is still a fraction of a second of leeway between when the train's brakes stop, and when you must complete the challenge. Only once you have crossed the white threshold and the challenge complete screen comes up, will the achievement pop for you.

*The time needed to beat the train seems to vary player by player. Whether that is the games mechanics, or it's a glitch is unclear.

Head straight from the start, blink to the back right so you can go through the table and end up passed the covered area. Keep going RIGHT, agility jump up to a roof covering a purple lantern area, and blink from there down to the lower area. Jump the small gap (this area has the giant wheels on Expert), then sprint up the slope. Follow the video from here until you reach the train station. Once you reach the station; from the staircase, blink on top of the small structure in front of you, and then blink straight ahead to the roof above the trains tracks that is between you and the finish line.

You can also check out this great video by xK Marcus

Rare Collector -15
You found all of the collectable figurines in the Burglar on Expert

There are 16 figurines, which can only be found in Burglar on Expert, that must be collected in one playthrough of the challenge. You must also finish the challenge for them to count.

For a collectibles guide, and a Burglar playthrough, click HERE.


Long Way Down -15
You performed a drop assassination of at least 150 meters in the Kill Cascade challenge

In order to do this successfully, head through the level however you choose, and as you approach the last 1/3 or so of the level, blink over to the cliffs on the right side, and blink to the tippity-top of the buildings overlooking the drop to the last guy. Once you're at the highest point of the building. Face the raid pillar of light, agility jump by holding and quickly tap to blink toward the light. Look down as you fall to make sure you don't land on anything and tap to when prompted to execute the final target.

Great video guide done by xK Marcus

Headhunter - 15
You completed Assassin's Run with 100% accuracy using only head shots

Be aware that enemy spawn locations change from attempt to attempt, so just make sure you keep an eye out for where the civilian is, and where the assassins are. Some spawn setups make the achievement far more difficult than others.

Awesome guide showing a solid method, and a great glitch/bug. Credit: xK Marcus

Daredevil - 15
In bonfires, you performed all the special combination jumps in 1 round

To count, the jump must be into a beam of light to get the "Tricky Jump" bonus pop-up, and all 6 tricky jumps must be done at least once without failing the challenge. You can either view my text guide for this HERE, or check out STLfan2468's awesome video below:

Natural Talent - 15
You finished Mystery Foe without using any active supernatural powers

You are not allowed to use any supernatural powers (including blink) to finish this challenge. Be sure to use the curtains to hide, and note that you can get bonus points for guessing the target before you find all of the kills, with may be worth the risk if you want to just rush the achievement without putting any effort into it.

Time Management - 15
You finished Chain Kill or Bend Time Massacre without failing any wave, including bonuses

Prior to starting this, note that there is a reported bug that may give you the achievement even after you have failed some of the waves. If you are close to finishing, you may want to just finish up instead of restarting, to save some time and hope you get lucky. Also note that you only need to meet the required kills for the round (noted at the top of the screen), and not necessarily kill everyone.

My full text guide for this achievement can be found HERE.

Bonfires Expert can go die in a fire.

That said, once I finally got three stars, I ended up with 40,140 points, which was good enough to rank number 5 on the leaderboards.

Seriously?!?

I must ask how you came up with your 5 to 15 hour time frame. Did the patches make some of the challenges that much harder? I have watched numerous videos of oil drop and seen people miss a bizillion oil tanks and still have half their life. I miss one and it goes down a quarter of the way. I am by no means the greatest gamer but i consider myself decent. With that being said, I have sunk at least 50 hours into this dlc and still have a ways to go.

It definitely shouldn't take you 50 hours, what are you struggling with so much? While some of the achievements require skill and an insane amount of luck, it should only take you around 10-15 hours to acquire every single one.

For the Whale Oil Drop challenge, just move to the very back corner and the whale oil tanks will do minimal damage to you. If you're running low on health, just shoot one of the red tanks and it will refill a good portion of your health. I think I scored about 500,000 points on this mission (4th in the world) before getting bored out of my mind and deciding to quit.

By My Hand Alone..... I've put more than 15 hours into this one alone and I still don't have it... Getting VERY frustrated now since I just want to finish this DLC and move on.

For Natural Talent, you could always abuse the new target system. Just start, open the door, and go to the room that is the first room on the left hallway. Just kill the guy, or girl, and hope he/she is your target. Less mistakes, and takes maybe 30-45 seconds for loading and gaming.

A guide can only help so much when the game expects absolute perfection >.<
