Search the Trade Depot

The guards inside the Trade Depot can be eliminated quietly via the hanging cargo or oil jars positioned inside.
Use Odin's Sight to highlight objects of interest.
Seek out The Needle

Confront The Needle at Coppergate Market

Escape the sewers and look for The Needle at Coppergate Market. A cutscene will play out once you are close enough to The Needle.
Assassinate The Needle
|Assassinate The Needle while he goes around Coppergate Market to complete the quest.
TIP: Wait for him to enter a stall alone if you prefer to eliminate him quietly.
Head to the stall marked with a black cloth outside after stealing the key from the patrolling Woe-Bringer. The stall's owner won't have any useful information but a child will beckon to you after speaking to him.
The child will point you towards The Needle's hideout located east of Coppergate Market. Use Raven's-Eye View to determine its exact location.
You can use the stolen key to get into the hideout and enter the sewers.
Follow The Needle's guards to his hideout at night. Use the Meditation feature to initiate a time-lapse of the day if needed.
|Start by jumping across the room and climbing the ladder on the other side.
Be mindful of any guards stationed on the upper floor of the area.
|Proceed further into the upper level.
Eliminate any guards in your way if necessary.
|Head to the short hallway with wine caskets at the end.|
