Just like it sounds. Poison enemy from behind, walk away, climb on wall, target the enemy and assassinate target.

I may be dumb but I can't do this..
I selected the poisoned hidden blade from the weapons wheel
The icon shows a blade with a skull
But whenever i press X on a target, Ezio uses always the normal blade...
Am I doing something wrong?

The thing I missed at first was that i was trying to air assassinate with the poison blade after I poisoned him. That doesn't work.
So once you poison a npc, switch back to the regular hidden blade, get up on a ledge, lock on to the poisoned npc and press X to assassinate.

I poisoned and killed a cilivian, they don't block.


It says NPC, not enemy.

I went to the prison section of Venice & went to the enclosed bay. Climbed onto the walkway at the far side of the wall. There was 1 guard but he was too far from the ledge. I got him to chase me & led him close to one of the square buildings along the walk. Once he was within range for an air assassination I threw a smoke bomb down, poisoned him, the I climbed onto the roof of the square building. I locked onto target & had hidden blade equipped. Hit x as I was on ledge to jump down on him. Slayed him outta his misery. Achievement unlocked. I tested the poison on a few other guards & NPCs to figure how much time I'd have. About 15-20 seconds I think. A bit of planning & it's an easy achievement really.

The biggest thing to remember is that you cannot be in open combat to use the poison blade. You will go back to attacking with the regular hidden blade if you try. So you either have to sneak up on them and tag them with the poison, or use the smoke bomb to break line of sight. It took me a while to figure that part out.

After that just get higher than them, lock on, and perform an air assassination on them.

It's simpler than it sounds. I was in San Giasomething in Tuscany, found two guards talking and sitting there (i don't kill civvies), walked up calmly with no Notoriety, popped the one guard with the Poison blade, Climbed the wall next to him then jumped down on him with the regular blade. Now i use the Poison blade when i want to watch a guard flip out.

This was the same technique I used. 2 guards standing around, I poisoned one, then immediately jumped up on the door behind him and did the air assasination from there. Not dramatic; as it was like a two foot jump down on him, but it worked a treat.
