In The Royal Conservatory, the following happens after I've rendered everyone in the building unconscious:
(a) I check my Stats for the Current Mission and they say:
Spotted by Enemies .... 0 Assassinations ........ 0 Nonlethal Takedowns ... 27 Total Kills ........... 0
(b) I place the target in the Oraculum and turn it on.
(c) I check my Stats for the Current Mission and they say:
Spotted by Enemies .... 0 Assassinations ........ 0 Nonlethal Takedowns ... 27 Total Kills ........... 3
I have identified the three unconscious witches who die:
- the one with the gray vest and white shirt in the turtle courtyard
- the two waiting to ambush you in the alley to the right of the first Wall of Light on the level
No matter what I do with these three unconscious enemies -- whether I move them to another spot, swap them with other witches's unconscious bodies, etc. -- they die as soon as the Oraculum is activated. I even tried carrying one of them over my shoulder while turning on the Oraculum, but of course the game makes you put down the body when you flip the switch. Then you get to watch helplessly as she bleeds to death.
Is there anything that can be done to avoid this, aside from writing to Arkane Studios and asking them to patch the game?
