What are the solutions to the Assassin’s Creed Mirage enigmas? There are many mysteries hidden on the streets of Baghdad – secret orders, a gang of extremely mean soldiers for hire, and even some books that have somehow lost their owners. None of these are as mysterious as the enigmas, though. These are collectibles that hint at a location on the map where you can find some loot – these clues can be a child’s drawing, a poem, or sometimes just the ramblings of a madman.
It’s safe to say that Assassin’s Creed Mirage is a return to form for a series that had perhaps lost its way, with sprawling maps and endless icons giving way to a more focused and streamlined experience (our Assassin’s Creed Mirage review goes into way more detail about this). Finding all the AC Mirage Lost Books was a bit of a pain, but the collectibles that really fried our brains in the adventure game this time around were the AC Mirage enigmas, however, the cosmetic rewards are worth the time and effort that goes into this treasure hunt, but just in case you want to fast-track to the goodies, we’ve put the legwork in for you and found every single enigma in Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
In order to find the buried treasure, you first have to find the clue that points you in its direction, so we have included the location for the clue, then the location of the treasure, organized by region.
Here are all 12 Assassin’s Creed Mirage enigmas and how to solve them:
A Challenge enigma
- Reward: Black Rostam outfit dye.
You’ll find A Challenge on the balcony of a building due south of the Scriptorium. This enigma comes in the form of a poem and directs you to a building east of the Gate of Tahir.
To find the building, look between two waterwheels. Head to the upper floor window and break the latch using a throwing knife. Once inside, you’ll find the treasure on the ground floor.
Delight by the Dome enigma
- Reward: Mysterious Talisman
The Delight by the Dome enigma is found atop a mosque just outside of the Round City walls. Once you have the delightful drawing in hand, it’s a short hop over to the tastefully named Dome of the Ass.
You’ll find the treasure on the outskirts of the building grounds, near a small body of water.
The Gift enigma
- Reward: Knight’s Talisman
You can find The Gift enigma on the left side of Abbasiyah on top of a building covered by foliage. This clue tells of a scorned lover throwing their ‘gift’ into the river near a gate famed for its markets.
The treasure has floated so far downriver that it’s now outside the city limits, past the Muhawwal Gate, and nestled next to the first bridge.
A Holy Hoard enigma
- Reward: Tan Abbasaid Knight outfit dye
You’ll find the A Holy Hoard enigma just outside the Round City walls, south of the Khurasan Gate Guardhouse. This simplistic drawing shows the location of the treasure to be on land surrounded by water on three sides, near a religious building.
Turns out, there aren’t many places surrounded by so much water, and the location for this treasure is on the north coast of Harbiyah, next to the large tree where the land juts out.
Find What I Stole enigma
- Reward: Black Janj Uprising outfit dye
The Find What I Stole enigma can be found south-west of the Qutrabbul Gate under a tarp surrounded by trees. This clue is a hastily written message, penned by a thief on the run from the city guards. They describe where they left the treasure, telling us to look out for colorful fabric from above.
Left Behind enigma
- Reward: Horned Lion Talisman
The Left Behind enigma can be found next to a corpse in a house just south of the Metal Factory. It is a crude, almost childlike drawing of a coastline, with smoke billowing from a building, and a lion in the bottom right corner.
The treasure can be found in the abandoned village in the bottom left corner of the map, right on the coast. The lion in the drawing refers to two captive cheetahs, which you must fight before collecting the treasure as they’re immediately hostile.
A Gift For You enigma
- Reward: Bedouin Talisman
You’ll find the A Gift For You enigma to the southwest of the Palace of the Green Dome in some cozy upper-floor living quarters. This written clue tells of a gift from one lover to another, which has been left in the small fountain to the west of the Malazim Courts.
Just Rewards enigma
- Reward: Black Abbasid Knight outfit dye
The Just Rewards enigma can be found in the Basra Gate on the eastern side of the Round City. It’s another crude drawing, this time depicting a large fort, its training area, and a big mark where we can find our loot.
The fort in question is the Shurta Headquarters, and the treasure can be found next to its southern wall.
Solve This Problem Quickly For Me enigma
- Reward: Gold Hidden One outfit dye
The enigma is inside the Officer’s Club, just to the northeast of the Qadi District Office viewpoint. In the northwestern part of the complex, there is a grass shade covering part of the rooftop. Here is where you’ll find the scroll.
Jarjaraya is the settlement to the southeast of the main city, next to the river. It has a viewpoint, so we recommend picking that one up first. From there, head northwest to find that the militia decided to burn down the village. They didn’t find what they were looking for, however, as you can go to the northern house to find the Enigma item close to a couple of skeletons.
Joy Beneath Weeping Palms enigma
- Reward: Green Hidden One outfit dye
The Joy Beneath Weeping Palms enigma is to the northeast of the Tuesday Market, just beyond the Pomegranate Gate on the southern edge of Karkh. This enigma is a drawing of a section of the map, showing three orchards, the smallest of which has a red line with an arrow pointing at it. In red, there’s also a crude drawing of a tree with an X next to its roots.
To find this tree, from the enigma, head to the road to the east that heads south. As you turn to the right at the fork in the road, you’ll see a smaller field of trees. In the middle of this field is a pile of rocks next to a blanket with the remains of a picnic.
Reap from the Ruins enigma
- Reward: Eldrich Talisman
The Reap from the Ruins enigma can be found in a building in the southwestern corner of Jarjaraya. It’s a rather scary page that looks like it was torn straight from the Necronomicon and depicts some decrepit ruins and the bare tree where we can find our loot.
- Reward: Rebel’s Talisman
You’ll find the Surrender enigma on the northeastern corner of the Tomb of Zubaydah area. It tells us of a man who had to flee his home due to flooding and the treasure he left behind.
You’ll find the Surrender loot at the most northern point of the Wilderness, in the village of Ukbara, outside a half-submerged house.
Well, there you have the Assassin’s Creed enigmas, their locations, and their solutions. You’ll nab yourself a bunch of talismans and an array of dyes for your Assassin’s Creed Mirage outfits from this hunt. Traversing Baghdad for these cosmetics is sure to take some time, so you may be wondering how long is Assassin’s Creed Mirage, to gauge how much further you have in one of the best RPGs this year.
