In Assassin’s Creed Mirage, you can conduct investigations while trying to destroy the Order of the Ancients. This is not an easy task as there are enemies lurking around, forcing you to work in the shadows. Sometimes you will have to rely on the help of others, which is what happens during the investigation of the Ali ibn Muhammad case.
To find the Zanj leader, you will have to infiltrate the Damascus Gate prison. You have two options to make the task easier – either turn to the merchants or the rebels for help. Both options will help you complete the task at hand, and this guide will show you what happens along each path.
Ali ibn Muhammad Investigation – what happens if you turn to merchants for help?
You will find the merchant near the prison, in the location indicated on the map above. Talk to the merchant, and after giving him one token, he will help you sneak into the prison, disguising you as his assistant. This will take you to the prison, although you will still have to use tons of stealth to get through the prison and finally find your target.
Ali ibn Muhammad Investigation – what happens if you turn to the rebels for help?
The rebels also positioned themselves near the prison. After talking to one of the rebels and giving him one favor token, he will gather his friends and storm the prison. Using this method, you will be able to walk through your front door without much effort.
Ali ibn Muhammad Investigation – should you turn to rebels or traders for help?
Either method will work, but asking the rebels for help offers a slight advantage. With their help you will kill a lot of guards. This will make it easier for you to further enter the prison. Merchant support does not give you the same benefits.
You will encounter many factions in AC Mirage , and not all of them will want to help you. Know who your friends and enemies are and you can make your way through Baghdad with ease.
