Optional Objectives:

  • Keep up with Montgolfiere
  • Don’t touch the ground

Time to catch up to Elise and see how good it went with getting the grain out of the building. Welp, it looks like it didn’t go as smoothly as possible.

You’ll need to cut the three ropes holding the balloon in place, but the guards will make this a pain. I suggest you drop Smoke Bombs to ignore the enemies, since Elise will slowly take them out, and start with the far one in the back and make your way around.

Elise's gotten in a lot of trouble, so once you gain control release the balloon via the ropes.

Once you cut the balloon free use the lift to reach the roof and turn right. Climb up to the highest roof and then turn left and jump off the beam. Head straight and at the end of the next roof jump to the roof to cross and then climb the ramp. Head straight across the wooden planks and continue across the buildings until the balloon begins to be off to the right a bit and then turn right along the buildings.

Jump off the beam, cross the rope, and climb the wooden ramp.

When you jump down next to the sniper you’ll want to make sure to turn left and climb up the building before you continue to follow the balloon. When the balloon crosses an open plaza and it looks like you have nowhere to go turn left and you should see a rope to the Apothicaire/Cafe building. Jump to the roof on the right so you are on that side of the street and continue to follow the balloon across a rope and then climb up and set it free.

When the balloon crosses the open plaza turn left and use the rope above (left). When Elise get's stuck on the chapel roof climb up and free her (right).

Although you regain control on the ground this does not count as a penalty toward your optional objective, so head across the way and take either lift up. The next bit is actually totally a straight shot over and through the buildings to a scene that completes the mission.

After the death of his father, an Assassin, De La Serre adopts Arno and raises him as his own son, alongside his daughter Elise. Thirteen years later, on the eve of Elies’s induction into the Templar Order, De La Serre is murdered and Arno is jailed in the Bastille as the culprit.
