Dishonored Achievements
Silence Is Golden40
Complete The Brigmore Witches without alerting anyone

Play through it while being stealthy, watch how the AI moves and find the best possible paths. If an enemy becomes suspicious white bars will appear over his/her head, this is fine. You are not alerting them unless they are suspicious enough to have three white bars, and when they turn into red bars, they have been alerted. It is important to save your game any time there is an area you may mess up on.

I believe this to be buggy. The last mission I have completed 3 times now and sure I was not detected one of the, Had no problems in Knife of Dunwall or the main game so be warned with this one.

Scratch that, there is just a specific way of doing it. Thanks to vSully for helping me out. Basically I don't want to include spoilers but in the final part there is a certain way you have to do it for the achievement. Even if you find an alternative way of not being detected (as I did), then it will void the achievement. If you are having trouble and don't mind me kinda spoiling it for you then by all means drop me a message.

SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! In order to get this achievement and the other achievement for not killing anyone, when you get to the Void Level where the witch leader is the last person you have to neutralize, make sure you go to where the final boss is in stealth mode and WAIT. When there are two alchemist circles, and a bunch of magic stuff is happening and Daud says, "I'm running out of time." Use your STOP TIME ability (make sure it's level 2) and go forward to where there is that other painting. Grab the other painting and use STOP TIME again and replace the original painting with the other painting and there you go, Silence Is Golden and Cleanest Hands.

#3 is me, I made a spelling error on my account so I had to make a new one. What I described is exactly what I did to get those two achievements (no thanks to Roose91, talk about a garbage post on an achievement website) if you do what I said to do, you will have no problem getting those two achievements.

Does alerting the statues void this? cause I knocked out all the people around and destroyed the dog bones, so nothing will come if it is alerted, but I'm not sure if that would count as me being seen or not. there's a rune I want but I can't get it without setting off the statue.

IMPORTANT TIP: I just finished going through the DLC and there is a part in the DLC where the game will try and screw you over when it comes to getting detected and that is at the end of the mission where you have to replace the the engine or power core or whatever for Lizzy stride on her boat. The part you have to be careful of is when you get back from getting the power core for Lizzy's boat right before you place the power core get reddy to blink up on the platform above where you place the power core and hide up there because a bunch of witches will ambush you and it counts as getting detected when they do ambush you. So just hide up there until Lizzy's people take out the witches. This worked for me and I hope this works for other people as well.

Do you really need to stop time in the Void? I just jumped down and switched the paiting. No statues could see me, and Delilah had her back turned. I did play on Novice though...

So when the statues start talking to you that counts as a detection? I wouldn't have thought so..

This one is challenging. In the Brigmore Manor, some witches teleport directly near you. Also, when you retrieve Lizzy's boat, they all appear in front of you, causing you to be seen. Make sure to save often !

It wasn't until after I popped this I read somewhere that the statues count as detections. PHEW.

Tried the Coldridge mission twice and still missed the "never detected" checkbox. Not sure how, either, since I was going for a Low Chaos/no-kill playthrough. Be extra careful.

Comment 6 is correct,
freeze time, replace the engine core, hide upstairs to get never detected.

So I just played through the DLC and afterwards I made sure i didn't kill or alerted anyone by playing through every individually mission however the stats show that I have completed the missions and made it without alerting/killing anyone but my achievement doesn't show.. Do I have to make a new game and play through it again?

hope someone can help...
