Dishonored Wiki

The Assessment Chamber is located in the sub-basement of the Jindosh Mansion. It is where Anton Sokolov is being held and also the location of the painting entitled "The Blood Topology of Grim Alex". It is patrolled by one Clockwork Soldier.

To access the chamber, you must first make your way to the basement, which is patrolled by 3 guards near the elevator and a fourth by the Wall of Light. This can be done in a number of different ways. A few options are:

  • taking either of the elevators
  • "riding" down in the Waiting Room by pulling the Configuration Lever while inside the room
  • using Far Reach / Blink to get into the crawlspace between the ground and second levels from the main atrium (where the piano / Arc Pylon are located), then jumping down into the basement area from the far side

Once in the basement, find the stairs down to the sub-basement and step on the pressure plate to open the door, taking care to not run into the Clockwork Soldier. Several of the other pressure plates serve to reconfigure the walls of the maze and reveal one pressure plate which is obstructed by wooden planks nailed to the floor. Break through these boards to activate that plate and allow the wall to Sokolov's cell to drop out of the way.

Simply retrace your route to get out.


  • Leaving one of the empty bottles from the shelf outside the entrance on the first pressure plate marks it for easier egress once you have found Anton.
  • You must remain standing on any given pressure plate until the reconfiguration is complete if you wish to use the new configuration.


Even if you have eliminated (either lethally or non-lethally) every guard in the mansion before reaching the Assessment Chamber, the guards in the basement will have respawned when you attempt to leave with Sokolov.
