One of the first side quests that you’ll encounter in Assassin’s Creed Mirage is “Where One May Haggle, or Try To,” which tasks you with collecting Artifacts for Dervis and returning them to his shop. These Artifacts are located in the area surrounding Dervis’ shop at the Dyeing Factory, so it’s a quick diversion from hunting down the members of the Order in Baghdad.
If you don’t know where to look, however, this quest can become very frustrating very quickly. This guide will show you where to find all of the missing Artifacts and how to return them to Dervis’ shop in Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage Dervis Artifact Locations
How to Return the Items to Dervis’ Shop in AC Mirage
Each of Dervis’ artifacts is being carried by random people throughout the city of Baghdad. You have to pickpocket the artifacts from them to get them back. Once you get near someone carrying an artifact, a gold pickpocketing icon will appear on the map.
The pickpocketing window for these artifacts is ridiculously tight, and you’ll likely fail on your first attempt. Thankfully, there’s an easier way to get the goods. Just kill them! Yes, killing civilians will result in desynchronization, but you have some wiggle room in that regard.
If you kill the person, you can collect their artifact without having to chase them down. You can also turn on guaranteed pickpocketing in the settings menu if you prefer to be a pacifist.
Once you’ve obtained enough artifacts, just head back to Dervis’ shop and select the option to return them. He’ll give you a bunch of crafting materials as a reward along with a hefty sum of Dirhams. That’s not all to this quest, however, since there are even more artifacts out there to find.
Harbiyah Artifact Locations
All four NPCs carrying Artifacts can be easily spotted from a synchronization viewpoint and will show up marked with gold icons if you survey the area with Enkidu. If you’re just trying to get the first set of three Artifacts for the first step of the quest, these are incredibly easy to obtain.
Abassiyah Artifact Locations
All of the Abassiyah Artifacts can be obtained in one quick sprint throughout the district. Just follow the canal south through the middle of Abbasiyah and then make for the Dome of the Ass to complete the route. There’s even a handy fast travel point at the Dome of the Ass if you’ve climbed it and used the synchronization viewpoint at the top already.
Karkh Artifact Locations
Karkh’s Artifacts are fairly spread out and it’s easy to miss the fourth one since it won’t show up when you scan the area with Enkidu unless you’re close enough to it in the first place. Thankfully, all four Artifacts are within walking distance of teleport waypoints and Hidden Ones Bureaus.
Round City Artifact Locations
There are only three Artifacts in the Round City at the center of Baghdad instead of four, which makes collecting them just a bit easier. If you climb to the synchronization viewpoint at the heart of the district, you’ll be able to spot all three and plan your route.
Wilderness Artifact Locations
The Wilderness contains the hardest set of Artifacts to find. Luckily for you, this guide has your back with all of their locations. The first Artifact is located in Basim’s hometown of Anbar in the northwestern corner of the map. You can find the target NPC to the east of the teleport waypoint in the town.
The second NPC to pickpocket is located in the middle of the desert between the letters H and D in “Baghdad” on the map when fully zoomed out. They are standing along the road to the east of the Excavation Site.
The third and final Wilderness Artifact is located in the town of Jarjaraya along the eastern coast of the map. The target NPC is located just west of the synchronization viewpoint in the village, making them an easy mark.
