During the final mission of The Knife of Dunwall, The Surge, in high chaos,

Billie Lurk will challenge Daud to a duel.

The first thing I notice when I regain control of Daud is that my opponent's alert indicator turns red, indicating that I've been detected (as we are about to engage in direct combat). Sure enough, at the end of the mission the Ghost (Never Detected) statistic is no longer checked.

Does this mean that it is impossible to Ghost the final mission in high chaos (and therefore impossible to earn the Whisper Ways achievement in a high chaos playthrough)?

    I vaguely recall that it's possible to blink away at the very start of the fight and do it stealthily but I'm not 100%. Feb 14, 2016 at 14:19
  • Just tried it now, but I can't seem to Blink before the alert indicator goes off.

It does count as a detection at the last screen, however, I still got Whisper Ways though. So if you didn't get Whisper Ways, then you were detected at some other point.

  • Interesting, so it looks like the game takes that into account. Thanks for weighing in.
