As you progress through Assassin’s Creed 3, you’ll be able to gain levels for the collected craftsman in your Homestead, helping you make new crafted items and upgrades. But, to do so you’ll need to find almost every optional side-quest for these characters, often scattered around the world map in each sequence. It isn’t easy leveling all your workers, but the pay-off is worth it if you’re looking to reach those top-tier crafting upgrades. Below, we’ll tell you just what order you’ll need to level-up your artisans.
How to Level-Up Artisans
To level up artisans, you must complete their respective side-quests and events, which pop-up during each Sequence, starting with Sequence 05.
Below, we’ll list in what order you’ll need to visit and complete each side-quest to gain artisan levels.
Don’t forget, you’ll need to recruit every worker and artisan before they can begin gaining levels.
Note: While not all side-quests and events have prerequisites, many do. Follow this order to gain every level, but you’ll need to find every event. If any levels are missed, you risk being unable to continue with one or more workers and artisans.
Note: After finishing the Lumberer’s Event, return to Achilles.
Lumberers (Lvl.1) [Summer Only]
Farmers (Lvl.1) [Frontier]
Note: Talk to Achilles to begin the side-quest “Encyclopedia of the Common Man” but don’t worry about finishing until you’ve recruited every worker and artisan.
Farmers (Lvl.2) [Summer Only]
Miner (Lvl.1) [Boston]
Note: After staying with the Innkeepers, you can begin Achilles’ side-quest here. You’ll also need to have started his Sequence 06 side-quest, but not completed.
Miner (Lvl.2) [After Achilles' Side-Quest]
Blacksmith (Lvl.1) [Frontier / Summer Only]
Note: Achilles’ side-quest can be found in New York after completing these events.
Tailor (Lvl.1) [New York]
Blacksmith (Lvl.2) [New York]
Woodworker (Lvl.2) [Boston]
Blacksmith (Lvl.3) [Boston / Summer Only]
Woodworker (Lvl.3) [Boston]
I felt the need to share this guide since I struggled finding the homestead missions only to realise I had went to far in the sequence to get them back. Make sure you do them before advancing.
