Isolated, Shao Jun and Zhu Jiuyuan despaired and finally decided to leave the country in order to seek the help of other Assassins. Zhu suggested going to Master Assassin Ezio Auditore, whose reputation had spread over the world. It was a long journey, and neither of them spoke the language, but it was their only hope.
They traveled secretly to Macau, where transportation was easiest towards Europe. During their trip, they witnessed the state of the Brotherhood's network in the country. Most safe houses had been raided, no Assassin worthy of the name was left alive. They really were alone, unless Wang Yangming was still alive, somewhere, trying to recruit and train new followers for what seemed a futile war.
