Avoid Killing Guards while Visible w/ Key?
So I had a much longer post asking about how to lure guards away from their posts, but I figured it out. The trick is mostly about switching back and forth between stealth and running, and keeping them out of reach.

Now I'm just past the first target, and I can't see any way to get past the guards and unlock the door in this room. It's setup in such a way that I cannot reach the door without confronting at least one of them.

If I put the key down, a guard will just pick it up, and I don't think I can take it back without killing.

This is a problem because I'm trying to go for a no kills run, and I know its possible because of the achievements.

Does poisoning guards during stealth NOT count as a kill? For that matter, what makes poisoning any better, unless that's the reason?

Figured out that poisoning's main plus is it doesn't leave bloodstains, though I loaded a game after that test.

Also got past that room, and its still the toughest so far for sneaking past guards at 50% visability. It's the room after the first assassination target, for anyone else trying no-kills.

It's possible to hug the wall just around the corner and they don't notice as you walk past, but you have really precise timing to sneak around and rush for the door. Good luck.
