Even though Assassin’s Creed: Mirage returns to its roots, Basim’s creation still has some elements to its liking. Not just in the form of cosmetics, but also in how it works with new perks and abilities. While acquiring skills can expand your playstyle, combining this aspect with outfits can make Basim a very versatile assassin. One outfit you may encounter early in the game is called the Abbasid Knight. It is slowly becoming my favorite because of its benefits. More on this later. In the meantime, if you want to know where to find the Abbasid Knight costume in Assassin’s Creed: Mirage, follow the instructions.
Assassin’s Creed: Mirage – Where to find the Abbasid Knight Costume
Most of the equipment you earn can be found in equipment chests scattered throughout Baghdad. However, they seem to be mostly found in strongholds such as palaces and other forts in the city. The same can be said about the equipment of the Abbasid knight.
Note. This outfit can only be found in the world if you purchased the Deluxe Edition of Assassin’s Creed: Mirage.
To get started, head to the Officers’ Club, located south of the Round City . Look at the map below, I have highlighted this area. The equipment will be located near the side of the building that faces the water . So, if you are coming from any direction other than water, head towards this place. Next we look for a doorway. To help identify it, there will be two or three guards near the stairs leading to the chest . You can either sneak past them or get rid of the guards, the choice is yours.
However, if you do the former, be quick and stay crouched while you go after them. Once you’ve safely passed by or killed the guards, there will be what looks like a nook there . Enter it and look to the left , there will be a chest with the outfit of the Abbasid Knight.
Pros of equipment
Each outfit can be upgraded a maximum of three times , and perks are added as you upgrade.
The purpose of the Abbasid Knight suit is to keep you alive as long as possible. Each time you update your equipment, Basim will restore health. It starts at 1 percent and goes up to 3 percent at the third level . However, the catch is that to activate this effect, you must be invisible and not moving. On top of that, it only returns about 50 percent of your health . I would recommend using this perk in dire situations, which can often occur in the first hours of Assassin’s Creed: Mirage.
A good gear strategy is when you’re in a fight and you’re low on health and out of elixirs, run away. I’m not kidding: running away will save your skin, not fighting. It was hard for me to realize this, but once I decided to get out of fights more often, most fights became easier to participate in because of the second wind. Once you’re out of combat, find cover and watch your health regenerate. Even though you’ll only get half your health back, you’ll still be able to handle conflicts better with this gear. These steps can be repeated – just make sure you don’t move and no one can see you.
