In Assassin’s Creed Mirage, every alley and rooftop holds secrets and treasures, but there’s one particular chest that’s been catching everyone’s attention – the House of Wisdom Gear Chest. Placed somewhere in the historic Abbasiyah region, this chest is a treasure trove that gives you a few good rewards to boost your gameplay. This guide tells you how to get the House of Wisdom gear chest in Assassin’s Creed Mirage and collect all the valuable items inside.

The House of Wisdom is located in the Abbasiyah region of the map. It’s a grand building steeped in history, where the whispers of the past meet the echoes of the present. Approach the House from the Northeast side and head to the northeastern part of the majestic structure.

You should also summon your trusty companion, Enkidu there. With Enkidu’s help, you’ll be able to spot all the guards lurking on the roof – you’ll want to keep an eye on them. Enkidu will help you spot the key holder, there’s a person walking around with the key to our gear chest, and you’ll need that.

The key holder is on the rooftop, on the northeastern side of the House of Wisdom. Activate Eagle Vision (press left on the D-pad for that), and you’ll be able to spot the man’s pouch. It’s time for pickpocketing – sneak up on the character with the Astronomical Library key and smoothly swipe the key without causing any chaos. Remember, we’re assassins, so let’s keep it smooth and stealthy. No need to cause a ruckus when a simple slip of the hand will do.

Throw the knife at the chandelier to blow it.

Start by climbing the north side of the tower, you’ll want to climb almost to the top, so get those assassin muscles ready for some action. Once you’re up there, you’ll spot a chandelier. This chandelier is more than just a good piece of interior design. Take out your knife and make a throw by aiming for it.

When you throw your knife at the chandelier, it’s going to come crashing down onto some explosive vases and the explosion will blast the ceiling. With the path now clear, head back down to the locked door you spotted earlier. You’re armed with the key (literally) to open it. Unlock that door, climb up the ladders, and you will reach the area where the gear chest is placed.

What’s Inside the Chest?

When you open that chest, you will receive a sleek dagger, an outfit, or an Abbasid Knight Sword Upgrade Schematic. It’s very much a surprise every time – like opening a mystery gift. If you’re gunning for a specific item in the set, keep in mind that there’s no surefire way to get it on the first try, unless you’ve the other items already in your inventory. It’s a bit of a game of chance, but that’s part of the fun.

Hunting down these gear chests in AC Mirage is worth it. They’re precious treasures scattered throughout the map, each one packed with goodies that level up your Assassin’s Creed Mirage gameplay. So, whenever you spot one, don’t hesitate to dive in and claim your reward.
