Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Achievements

Talion A.D.

Descend into the bowels of an urban jungle and confront a warrior-priest.


Pritchard again will be in contact with you and will want you to go speak to one of the doctors at the Shanghai LIMB Clinic. Head inside and speak to the doctor to the left. The mission he gives you is to find an old friend of his who has he feels is making the wrong choices in life. 

Now head back to the area where you dealt with the gang for the 'Corporate Warfare' achievement. Along the right hand side you should spot an sewer entrance. Take this down and head around to the left. Along this route you'll find the man the doctor wanted you to talk to - Zelezny.

Head over and talk to Zelezny and make your save. There's only one way to really do this achievement without ruining all your hard work and that is to agree with Zelezny so you avoid having to fight him and his men. Once you've spoken to Zelezny and agreed on his decisions, head back to the doctor and either convince or lie to him. Once the conversation has ended the achievement will unlock.

Point of No Return
Make sure you've completed all the side quests and collected all the E-Books in Shanghai (2) as this is your last chance as you will not be returning here, so they won't be available again.

I got it. Second time you go to China and need to the clinic. It would appear a
doctor speaking with you. And he gaves you a quest. The man you're looking for is on the sewers, near another sidequest (those men in black waiting for another guy and
you go to take them down for a chip or something). Hope it helps you.

Any idea what you say to get the guy to turn himself in?

This one glitched on me, I went to the butcher shop, found the PS, read it, but the quest note still says to read it and no matter what I do it's not advancing the quest. I found the back room in my wanderings the first time in Hengsha, maybe that bugged it from working right somehow.

just go back to the same place where you knock out those people for the Corporate Warefare sidequest and go to the sewers from there and confront them. There's no sidequest marker thats the only thing that's "bugged."

No bug at all.
The quest cleary says to read, so read. It tells you he went to the sewers so go to the sewers =)

I can not confirm if killing him results in the same ending, however, letting Zalazny go will get you the achievement and a Praxis kit.

Worst thing is, I kinda agree with his idealistic, albeit extreme, wishes...

Also, note: you gotta speak with the guy who knows your name in the LIMB clinic. 2nd time you go to Hengsha.

Confirmed: not only does letting him go get you the achievement + praxis kit, but some of the mercs on the street disappear.

So there is no way in convincing him to give him self up?
I sat there hoping i could reason with him,
but he wouldnt budge, i was really close to letting him go on his quest but i knew
things would get out of hand so i took all of them down with the Typhoon Explosive System, it was really awesome but sad at the same time...

No marker when there should be a marker, and the quest log says to read the note, even after you have read it and doesn't change. Sounds like a glitch to me.

At least it's not a quest-breaker and he can still be found.

I agree. You read it and nothing happens. but from what it says you can figure out wherre to look

By not showing quest marker, it is "glitched". The problem is there is more than one sewer to go to. I went down the one that was in the same section of Hengsha as the safe house under the meat market. The correct sewer to go down is the one in the district where the L.I.M.B. clinic is. It's located in the lowest level of the area directly underneath the pod apartment complex.

Can someone give me a step-by-step guide so I have one by the time I get to Hengsha?

I get needing a point in the right direction sometimes but I don't get this step by step business, why pay 60 bucks for a game if not to explore all it has to offer, might as well just save 60 dollars and read how it's done and pretend that you did it through the reading.

anyone know if letting him go negates the pacifist achievement?

I beat this game twice and I can't find him so I was asking for a guide to finding him.

@19 Have you been given the mission but are unable to locate the butcher's shop, or Zalanzny(sp?)? Or do you need help even starting the mission?

there are 2 easy ways: gas grenade (just buy from weapon dealer if you dont have one) and throw it before you walk past the small concrete blocks in front of his group (otherwise you get into conversation)
talk to him, choose the left response first, then the top one, then all the right side ones thereafter (ie do not pick fight) it lets him go but you go back to the doc and get the achievement

also the link from WarzoneAchievements is spot on to show you where it is (the only sewer in that area i think)

both methods stop you 1) getting your ass whupped if you are stealth aug'd, and 2) losing the pacifist achievement. also, who knows, he might turn up in the future... (not a spoiler, i've only just got the achievement)

Found this one when on the sneak mission from the lady on the roof. Quiet easy.

just so you know, you get the achievement no matter how you deal with him - you can talk and convince him to leave, take him & his team on killing them, or by using stealth & knocking them out (I did it this way with the tranq rifle), this also shouldn't negate the Pacifist (some how I didn't get mine even though I didn't kill anyone)

Just knock them out with gas grenade, go back to the doctor and you still get achivo, Praxis kit and it should't void Pacifist achivo.

You can find it if you follow the main mission M3, You Scratch My Back.

Just stand on the platform above and tranq them all, if they have no helmet it's an instant knock-out. So shoot a dart in Zelezny's head and then in anyone who walks up to him, they won't turn hostile.
