Harbiyah in Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the region north of the Round City, and it contains a total of 31 collectibles, a lot more than Karkh and Round City itself. Finding these collectibles in Harbiyah will go towards 100% completion of Assassin’s Creed Mirage as well as reward you with unique items and lore regarding the world.
Just like all the other regions, we will also be dividing the collectibles locations in the Harbiyah district within their own collectible category and provide you a Harbiyah collectibles map in AC Mirage to help find and collect them all.
Harbiyah Gear Chests locations
A total of 6 gear chests can be found in Harbiyah in AC Mirage. As always, the chests are divided into two sets. The first set of a specific gear chest will always reward you with a weapon or outfit while the remaining two chests will have upgrade schematics.
Collecting all the Gear Chests in Harbiyah in AC Mirage will get you a fully upgraded Zanj Uprising Sword and Outfit.
How to get Zanj Uprising Sword (Gear Chest 1)
Make your way to the location marked on the map within the Soap Boiler’s District of Harbiyah. Once at the place, you can enter the house by going underneath the floorboards and then breaking them with your throwing knife. Once the floor is destroyed, you need to get to the second floor of the house.
Right next to you would be a ladder that you could climb up. After entering the room on the second floor, just turn around, and you’ll find the gear chest that contains the Zanj Uprising Sword.

The second gear chest of Harbiyah is at the Damascus Gate Prison. Once you are at the prison, you need to hop into the trench right outside the prison gate. Turn right towards the chest, and you’ll notice a slightly broken chain gate. Use your throwing knife to open the other end of the gate, allowing you to circle around and reach the chest. You’ll obtain the Zanj Uprising sword upgrade schematics here.
How to get Zanj Uprising Sword upgrade schematic (Gear Chest 3)
The last gear chest for Zanj Uprising Sword is at the Metal Factory in the Harbiyah district of AC Mirage. You don’t have to break open anything to get into the first floor of the building where the chest is. Just climb up from the inside of the house at the marker shown on the map. On the upper floor, you will find the chest that contains the Zanj Uprising Sword upgrade schematic.
How to get Zanj Uprising Outfit (Gear Chest 4)
You would need to move the big racks around a bit in order to reach the chest. First push in the one you can grab from the outside.
Then, jump over the boxes to your right. And push this same rack forward from there all the way through.
Now go to the second rack, and pull it back as much as you can. Then go to the third rack and pull that one as well, enough to make room to move through. Once you’re there, pull the first rack again, and you’ll reach the chest and obtain the outfit.

This one is not that difficult to obtain. There are, however, plenty of enemy guards on patrol that you would need to worry about. You could either assassinate them all, sneak past them, or go loud but the route is quite straightforward, and the chest can be found on the ground floor near the wall. You’ll obtain the Zanj Uprising Outfit Upgrade Schematic here.

At the guardhouse, you need to go all the way to the rooftop. There are two guards there, and the chest is within the armory. You’d have to deal with the guards first before trying to access the armory. When you’re done with the guards, you come across the same moveable stacks.
First, you need to break the clay pot that would stop the right stack from being pushed. After that, push the right stack all the way through, just sprint underneath the table on your left side, and you’re inside! You can finally obtain the last schematic over there.
Harbiyah Lost Books locations
There are two Lost Books in Harbiyah in Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
Lost Book #1 Kalila wa-Dimna

Lost Book #2 Tafsir of Altabari
Location: Outside Nestorian Monastery
To get the lost book Tafsir of Altabari, you need to go underground via the staircase, which acts as the secret entrance to the Nestorian Monastery. You’d need to take the first left within the shelves, go towards the end where there’s a table, and take a right. Go straight ahead and take a right, and you’ll end up with one of the moveable stacks. Pull it back and go to the second stack.
To reach the second stack, you need to take the first left when looking back from the table. Pull it back as far as you can as well.
After that, go to the final stack and pull it back. It’ll open up an area with a broken wall with crawling insects all over it. You can slide underneath it easily. It will take you directly to the lost book.

Harbiyah Dervis’ Artifacts locations
Four of the Dervis’ Artifacts in AC Mirage are scattered around the Harbiyah district. Go to the marked locations on the map and use Eagle Vision to highlight the targets. They should be in gold color. Once you have marked the target, walk slowly to them and pickpocket the NPC to steal the Dervis’ Artifact from them.
Dervis’ Artifact #1 Buddhist Votive Plaque
Location: West of Iron Gate
Dervis Artifacts are a little different and a little difficult to figure out. They’re mostly on the person of an NPC that Basim needs to steal from. The first one is in a little awkward location, a bit away from the two landmarks on the map. You’ll find this NPC near the haystack if you follow the location on the above-given map.
Dervis’ Artifact #2 Aksumite Amulet
Location: Dyeing Factory
In order to pickpocket this NPC, you’ll need to visit the Dyeing Factory. Luckily this NPC is not near any police patrol, so it would be easy to retrieve the Dervis Artifact from them.
Dervis’ Artifact #3 Scandinavian Brooch
Location: Near Farms
You’ll need to navigate all the way to the farm entrance south of Ditch Sluice of the Fief. One of the farmers over there would be holding the artifact, and you’d need to pickpocket off of him.
Dervis’ Artifact #4 Money Cowerie
Location: West of Dyeing Factory
This one is also an easily approachable NPC you’ll find near a haystack cleaning around the area. You can silently pickpocket the Dervis’ Artifact from them.
Harbiyah Mysterious Shards locations
Just like the other regions of Baghdad, Harbiyah in AC Mirage has 2 Mysterious Shards being carried by the Tha’abeen. You can intercept these targets anywhere on their route and assassinate them to pick up the Mysterious Shard collectibles. However, we will be giving you the best location to assassinate the targets.
Mysterious Shard #1
Location: Soap Boiler District Bridge
The shard is held by one of the enemy NPCs. They’ll be walking around, but they’ll end up at the bridge highlighted in the above map. The target will be accompanied at least one other NPC. Since there are no other guards on this bridge, this is the best spot to kill the Order member and pick up the Mysterious Shard.
Mysterious Shard #2
Location: South East of Dyeing Factory
The second Mysterious Shard in Harbiyah is a little difficult to collect. The target location, as shown on the map above, has a lot of guards around, so if you kill them or try to pickpocket, you will surely raise an alarm.
To get this Mysterious Shard, create a distraction either with your smoke bombs or some other way, and then go after the Tha’abeen. Assassinate the NPC to collect the Mysterious Shard.
