Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the new trending topic in the gaming industry with Ubisoft releasing the sequel of one of their most iconic gaming series Assassin’s Creed. The game has got the fanbase divided over the developer’s claim of the franchise returning to its roots, however, that debate is definitely not going to stop the players from diving deep into the game and exploring the ancient city of Baghdad. Hence with this Assassins Creed Mirage guide, we will try and list down the best gear (such as Armor, Sword, Daggers etc) that the players in the game, Assassins Creed Mirage can get early to make their adventures as an assassin a little easier.
Best Gear that players can get early in Assassin’s Creed Mirage
The game, Assassins Creed Mirage just like the prequels has a range of armors and weapons that offer plenty of perks to the characters while also augmenting different types of approaches to the game. For example, the Zanj Uprising outfit gives the players a more stealthy approach as the perks offered by the outfit are best utilized when players take on the enemies in stealthy ways, on the other hand, the Abbasid Knight outfit gives a bit more warrior look and the perks also serves best if players take on the tank approach in the game.
The best thing about the character system is the fact that players can equip the armor in the game just like the older titles with not many restrictions on the pre-requisites of level to fulfill. This makes finding new armor in the game more interesting as they can be used against the enemies as soon as they are purchased. Gaining money to buy this armor is the only issue that the players will face in the game. In this article we will take a look at the best gear players can get in the game early.
1. Zanj Uprising outfit
The Zanj Uprising outfit is one for the players who have a bit more stealthy approach to the game. The outfit does not only give the players notoriety perks but also makes Basim look like Bayek. The outfit gives a lot of AC origins vibe as the design is similar to that of the outfit from Egypt. Talking about the perks, the outfit targets notoriety and offers a reduction in the impact of illegal actions undertaken by Basim in the normal course of play.
The outfit contributes to the reduction of notoriety which is a big deal in the game, as a lot of missions in the game are based around stealth in the new title and players get additional rewards as well as part of some quests and side quests for not being detected during the missions.
Lower Notoriety means that there will be no interference from the guards nearby who could be the irritating uninvited guests in some quests in case of higher notoriety, thus ruining the rewards and bonuses. Hence Zanj Uprising outfit is a great addition to the arsenal of any assassin in Baghdad. The outfit can be found in Baghdad on a boat near the eastern side of the upper harbor. The outfit is safely placed in a chest which the players can loot to add it to their arsenal.
2. Hidden one Sword and Dagger
Hidden One Sword and Dagger while not being the most efficient weapons in the game, are definitely one of the better ones that the players can come across early in the game. The Hidden One Sword and Dagger when equipped together give the players a perk which from the perspective of the game is very useful, but from the perspective of the promise of returning to the roots, made by developers, not so much.
When the sword and dagger are equipped together after 5th consecutive melee strikes the target gets poisoned and if the players then use the finisher on them which will be made by the dagger, a poison cloud will be formed affecting the nearby enemies’ HP as they get damage from the poison cloud.
The poison cloud mechanism is definitely not an AC original, however from the combat perspective it definitely helps to create mayhem around the enemies and affects the HP of every single target in range, making it one of the best weapons in Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
Do make sure to finish the enemy with a melee attack for the poison cloud as damage from parry or death from bleeding effect won’t trigger the cloud. The Sword and the Dagger can be found as part of the loot from the chests. The chests are out in the wilderness, hence follow the screenshots above to find the exact location.
3. Rostam Sword
Rostam Sword is a great addition to the player’s arsenal, especially those who don’t play the game in stealth and prefer a more straightforward approach in the game, which is basically to kill every single enemy in open combat. One thing that the players might have not noticed is that Basim is not as strong and doesn’t do as much damage as other protagonists in the series, definitely not as much as Eivor, hence open combat could be a challenge for the players in Assassin’s Creed Mirage to overcome.
Rostam Sword fits perfectly for players in this criteria, as it boosts the offensive stats of Basim and makes him a force to deal with. The sword is one of the best attacking options the players can go for early in the game. Not to mention the looks, the sword looks pretty cool too, hence making it the best option early on in Assassin’s Creed Mirage for offensive setups.
The Sword can be received as part of the rewards from the earliest contract that is unlocked in the game as part of the main storyline. Assassin contracts are generally posted on the contacts board and have a lot of rewards that the players can get to their name by completing the quest in the prescribed manner.
Each quest rewards players based on how many prerequisites the players were able to satisfy in that mission. Rostam Sword is a part of these rewards in the contract as players would need to complete the contract without getting detected in the mission. Zanj Uprising outfit might come in handy for this one.
4. Abbasid Knight Outfit
Abbasid Knight Outfit grouped together with the Rostam Sword could be the full berserker arsenal set that the players might need if they don’t believe in stealth and prefer to keep things simple. The armor stealth is a heavy gear set and provides an ample amount of protection from the enemy blows, the best perk however is the health re-generation feature which allows Basim to get some of the lost HP back from the attacks of enemies. The re-generation however only takes place once the combat is over and Basim is back in the shadows.
The appearance of the armor is pretty appealing as well, especially for the fans who prefer open combat to stealth in the game. The Abbasid Knight Outfit as the name would suggest gives Basim a full warrior look making him look more aggressive and well-protected in open combat. This makes it a very useful and one of the best gears of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
The armor can be found tucked in within a chest in the Karkh District, it is pretty easy to follow up and claim the armor. The armor can be upgraded with the help of schematics as well which would further increase the perks of the armor which is health re-generation.
These were our picks for the list, this is not the best armor and weapons list but rather the best ones players can start their game with as they are pretty easy to obtain in the game. Just like Valhalla there are many epic and legendary sets and those sets are the ones that will have unbeatable stats, however, the ones listed on this list are the stepping stones to them as they will make the journey easier and hence it will be easy for players to progress further in Baghdad as Basim and get those legendary sets.
