How to Start Homestead Tailor Mission[edit]

Speak with Godfrey outside the Mile's End Tavern (See map below for general area)


Protect Ellen's House


Catch up with the group of Homesteaders

Don't let Quincent and this thugs break into Ellen's House


After speaking with Godfrey near the Inn, run after the other people to Ellen's House

Pay attention to the "health" of the following objects:

Ellen's Side Window

Ellen's Front Window

Ellen's Front Door

Focus first on those thugs that are breaking the object with the lowest health, especially if it's in the red. Use only your fists to beat them.

After you dispatch all of the thugs, there will be a brief cinematic and the mission is completed.


Prevent the thugs from knocking down the door.

Use only your fists against the thugs. Attempt to use a different weapon, and you will get the message:

WARNING: Use only your fists.

If you persist with a lethal weapon, you will get Desynchronized along with the message:

DESYNCHRONIZED: Wrong weapon used.

And you will have to start the fight over.

Try to get the thugs in a choke.


Godfrey: Connor! Ellen's Dullard of a man is trying to break down her door with his mates! We're on our way to stop it!

After the fight:

Connor: Ellen and Maria are free of you. I say so. The people behind me say so. Believe me when I tell you if I EVER see you on this land again, I will end you.

Quincent: You can have them

Ellen: Thank you. All of you. Nobody has ever stood up for us before.

Godfrey: We protect our own, Ellen.

Ellen: This is my home now. I'll find a way to show my gratitude to you all. I promise.
