Locations and Rewards of all of Dervis’ Artifacts in Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the newest entry in Ubisoft’s long running action-adventure series. After the series new direction with its recent entries received polarizing reviews, Ubisoft looks to bring the series back to its roots with Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
The game promises a return to the type of gameplay that players fell in love with in the earlier entries of the series. This includes more stealth based gameplay, parkour, and relatively more linear story than the open world of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Furthermore, like previous entries in the series, there is a lot of side content and activities for you to go through in the city of Baghdad. This includes collectables for you to find, which can net you better gear, weapons, cosmetics, or just the satisfaction of completion.
Dervis’ Artifacts are just some of the treasures you can find in the city of Baghdad. On request from a merchant named Dervis, collection of all of these artifacts takes you on a journey to pickpocket wealthy citizens all over the map. Additionally, you can deliver these artifacts in bundles so you don’t have to painstakingly deliver them one by one. Furthermore, finding these artifacts and delivering them will get you upgrades for Basim’s equipments, as well as a substantial discount in Dervis’ shop,
This guide aims to tell you all you need to know about these artifacts, including their rewards, how to get them, and their locations.
Rewards for Dervis Artifacts
Dervis requests artifacts in sets of three. First three, then 6, and then 9, and so on until you collect all 18. As a reward, he gives you upgrade when you reach each amount, such as leather when you find 6. In total you can get 180 Leather and 180 Steel Ingots. Since upgrading your equipment is a key to being effective in combat and stealth, it’s worth your time and effort to track down these artifacts.
Additionally, collecting all 18 will net you the Treasure Hunter outfit.
How to Get All Dervis’s Artifacts in AC Mirage
Dervis’ artifacts can be found in all regions of the map, including the Wilderness. Although, they won’t appear on your map until you get close to a settlement. Additionally, you can check your to see how many artifacts you’ve found and how many are yet to be found in the current region.
The navigation bar will denote holders of the Artifacts with a golden hand icon. Several gold markers, to denote points of interest, show up on your map when you synchronize at a viewpoint. This will make it easier for you to find Artifact holders.
Approach the Artifact holder and pickpocket them. The pickpocket minigame is much harder with Artifact holders, as the quicktime event’s window is significantly shortened. So, it is recommended that you invest Pickpocket Master skill to make collecting these Artifacts substantially easier.
