Now, I know what you might be thinking: “Finding a single chest in a game as wide as Assassin’s Creed Mirage? That’s like looking for a needle in a haystack.” But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

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 of Wisdom from the Northeast side. Head to the northeastern part of this majestic structure and guest what? You can totally strut around on the ground floor without raising any eyebrows.

But, before you get too comfortable, remember to summon your trusty companion, Enkidu. 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 key.

The key isn’t hanging out with a guard or placed on a table but it’s actually with an NPC. So, where exactly is this unsuspecting key-holder? He’s on the rooftop, on the northeastern side of the House of Wisdom. Activate Eagle Vision (just press left on the D-pad, easy peasy), and you’ll be able to spot the key holder’s pouch. Now, 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. Now, as much as we appreciate a bit of décor, this chandelier is more than just a good piece of interior design. Take out your knife and make a throw by aiming for the chandelier.

When you throw your knife at the chandelier, it’s going to come crashing down onto some explosive vases. Yes, we’re talking about a mini explosion that 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 pop that chest open, you could find yourself holding 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.

And let me tell you, hunting down these gear chests is totally worth it. They’re like little precious treasures scattered throughout your journey, 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.
