By GamesRecon

When you’ve been traversing the streets of ancient Baghdad in Assassin’s Creed Mirage, you will stumble upon the ‘Follow Nur’s Lead’ quest. Besides dodging guards and scaling rooftops, you’ve got this exciting side task to hunt down Dervis’ Artifacts scattered around the city. If you’re finding this task a little tough or just need a handy guide, this walkthrough will explain everything.

If you’ve been with the Assassin’s Creed series for a while, you’ll know it’s always had a bit of a magpie tendency – shiny collectibles everywhere. From the feathers in Renaissance Italy to the sea shanties drifting over the Caribbean seas, there’s always been that extra sprinkle of treasure hunting on the side.

Now, AC Mirage is no slouch in this department either. The game’s taken us to the mesmerizing streets of ancient Baghdad, where there’s more than just the main storyline to keep us busy. There are Mysterious Shards hidden in nooks and crannies, Lost Books that whisper tales of old, and many Enigmatic puzzles known as Enigmas. Dervis’ Artifacts in Assassin’s Creed Mirage are also among the collectible crew. So why bother with all these optional trinkets? Well, aside from satisfying our inner completionist, there are rewards aplenty. And who doesn’t love a good bonus in their gaming escapades?

Assassin’s Creed Mirage Dervis’ Artifacts Location

How do you find these Dervis’ Artifacts? Well, it’s a bit like a game of “Where’s Waldo?” but with a twist. As you’re casually strolling (or, more likely, stealthily sneaking) through the city, keep those eagle eyes peeled for some NPCs sporting a fancy gold icon – picture a hand floating above a hexagon – that’s your cue. These folks are your golden ticket to Dervis’ treasures.

Here’s a pro tip: When you get closer to one of these special characters, not only will that golden icon give you a nudge, but your in-game compass will also join the party. It’ll show the icon, and – this is the cool part – the NPC will be forever marked on your map until you manage to pickpocket them.

“But wait,” you might say, “pickpocketing’s a cinch!” well, not so fast! The window to obtain the artifact is teeny-tiny, making it a thrilling little challenge. But don’t get discouraged if you miss your shot. If you botch it, simply leave, give it a moment, and come back for round two.

Optimizing the Search with Skills

Sometimes, our sneaky fingers need a little boost. I mean, pickpocketing in this game can be like trying to snatch a fly with chopsticks. Thankfully, the game’s got our back with a nice skill that’s a real game-changer.

Have you come across that skill that makes pickpocketing feel like a breeze? If not, it’s time to invest some of those hard-earned skill points. This gem increases the room for mistakes, so even if you’re a tad off with your timing, you’ll likely still get that artifact. Honestly, if you desperately want to round up all of Assassin’s Creed Mirage Dervis’ Artifacts – and I know you are – getting this skill is a no-brainer.

Finding Dervis’ Artifacts with Enkidu’s Eye

Ever wished you could get a bird’s eye view of Baghdad? Well, your dreams do come true with the Enkidu’s Eye in AC Mirage. You press up on the d-pad on the controller or tap the B key on the keyboard, and you’re suddenly soaring high, controlling your trusty eagle companion as it glides through the sky.

While you’re up there, living your best bird life, you’ll spot beams of yellow light scattered around. These aren’t just for show; they’re like big, flashing neon signs saying, “Collectible here!” Every time you fly toward one, Enkidu will help you identify what treasure awaits below, making it way easier to hunt down those Dervis’ Artifacts.

Rewards for Collecting Dervis’ Artifacts

Rewards for Finding Dervis Artifacts

After you’ve done all that sneaky work and have obtained Dervis’ Artifacts, it’s payback time. Head over to our man Dervis, and he’ll trade those artifacts for a nice stash of materials. And here’s a fun twist: the more artifacts you hand over at once, the bigger your reward.

But, and there’s always a “but,” there’s a catch. Dervis is a little… particular. You can’t just dump a random number of artifacts on him. He only accepts them in batches of three, six, and then nine. It’s quirky, but, everyone’s got their thing.

If you’re a completionist and manage to get every last one of those artifacts (props to you, by the way), there’s an extra cherry on top. Depending on whether you’re playing on a console or PC, you’ll also unlock a trophy or achievement and there is also an ultra-cool Treasure Hunter Costume. Who doesn’t love a fresh look for their in-game character?
