Karkh Gear Chests locations
Just like other regions, the first gear chest of a set you find in Karkh will have an outfit or a weapon, while any other subsequent gear chests of that same set will contain upgrade schematics. We will go over the AC Mirage Karkh gear chests in order of items and their upgrades.
Gear Chest 1

Gear Chest 2

Keep moving till you see a door you can open to the right. Go through this door and find the staircase in the right corner of this room. Go up the stairs, and you will find the Gear Chest in the room above.
Gear Chest 3

Once these stairs are cleared, you will see a small opening in front of you. Enter this opening, and you will see the Gear Chest next to an armor display.
Gear Chest 4
Collectible obtained – Abbasid Knight Dagger
On the northern side of the insides of The Bazaar, you will find a door with two flower vases nearby and some red drapes hanging on the wall directly above it. Go through this door, follow the path into the open, and immediately turn right.

Gear Chest 5
Collectible obtained – Abbasid Knight Dagger Upgrade Schematic
This Gear Chest is found in a chamber on top of the outer wall of The Great Garrison. To the southwest of the outer garrison wall entrance, climb the first nearby red tent stall to the right and vault over the railing in front. Follow this path to the right until you drop down in front of a small entrance you can slide through.
Enter The Great Garrison and immediately climb the wooden supports to the right and vault onto the wooden walkway below. Follow this walkway to the end and climb the metal rings to the top of the wall. From here, go right around the open doorway, scaling the wall since you want to get to the side of the wall opposite this doorway.
Eventually, you’ll reach a metal pole jutting out of the wall, with a hay carriage right below, so jump down into it. Exit the hay carriage and take the narrow path to the left, climbing up the boxes that you see to the right at the end of this path. After climbing them, you will see a ladder in front of you. Climb this and run to the left, inside the chamber on the wall.
You will find a moveable bookshelf you can interact with, so move it to reveal a metal gate with its bottom exposed, allowing you to slide through. There will be a guard on the opposite side of the room, and the Gear Chest right next to him. Feel free to use a smoke bomb to kill him decisively and proceed to loot the Gear Chest.
Gear Chest 6
Collectible obtained – Abbasid Knight Dagger Upgrade Schematic
The last gear chest in Karkh in AC Mirage can be found within the chamber at the top of Qasr Salih. You can scale the distance in a variety of ways. One includes entering from the small door to the east of Qasr Salih and going straight forward past the corridor.
When you reach the opening in front, climb the pillar to the right and the metal ring on the wall up above. From here, proceed directly forward to the base of the tallest tower of Qasr Salih. Once you cross the small walkway towards this side of Qasr Salih, turn left, and you will find a ladder leading up the tower here.
Climb it and kill the guards here as well as on the top of the chamber. From where you ended up when you climbed the ladder, pick up one of the smaller flaming vases, then move towards the side of the tower to the right of the ladder.
Climb the set of boxes you see here to reach the top of the chamber that holds the Gear Chest. Now, throw this vase at the blocked entrance on the roof of the chamber to open a path. Drop down this newly made opening, and you will find the Gear Chest within.
Karkh Mysterious Shards locations
There are a total of two targets in Karkh that can drop Mysterious Shards in AC Mirage. Since the targets are moving around, you might not find them at the exact spot we have shown on the Krakh collectibles maps but waiting in the area should eventually bring them to you. Alternatively, you can try to intercept them at any point in their route and assassinate them to collect Mysterious Shards.
Mysterious Shard #1
To find this mysterious shard, make your way to the coast southeast of The Bazaar. Follow the path around this little coastal market, and you will see a man along with an escort; the Mysterious Shard will be in the man’s inventory. Assassinate the guard and proceed to kill the man to get this Mysterious Shard or simply pickpocket him.
Mysterious Shard #2
The next Mysterious Shard is found in the wide-open street outside The Great Garrison. As you move here, Basim mentions that a Tha’abeen member is nearby. You should notice a woman with a purse that you can target, so walk up to her pickpocket her and acquire the Mysterious Shard, then quickly exit the scene.
Karkh Dervis’ Artifacts locations
There are four Dervis’ Artifacts within the Karkh district. Like all the other artifacts, you need to pickpocket a certain NPC within the area to get the Karkh artifacts. Use your eagle vision in the marked areas, and you can spot the NPC you need to pickpocket, thanks to their gold color.
Dervis’ Artifact #1 Ivory Chess Piece
To the east of the Monastery of Virgins, in the crowded market a bit to the south-east of the bridge nearby, you will find a man in a green shirt, wearing a green turban, whom you can pickpocket to acquire the Ivory Chess Piece.
Dervis’ Artifact #2 Decorated Shell
To find this artifact, go to the north-eastern entrance of The Grand Bazaar. To the north, a bit beyond the top left corner of this open court, you will find the holder of the artifact, a lady dressed in yellow, browsing one of the stalls. Simply pickpocket her to acquire the Decorated Shell.
Dervis’ Artifact #3 Glass Weight
To find this artifact, locate the small inland water channel southwest of Al-Mi’dhana Al-‘Atee. You will see a small bridge over this channel as you move further down. Cross this bridge, and along the way, you will see a lone stall with a man working on a carpet tanning rack by himself. Jump off the bridge, and go up to this man to pickpocket him and grab the Glass Weight.
Dervis’ Artifact #4 Jade Comb
A small market with a big tree in the middle can be found to the northeast of the bridge that connects The Great Garrison and Harbor Camp. Near this tree will be a group of people around a lady playing an instrument. Pickpocket the man near the lady to get the Jade Comb Dervis’ Artifact.
Karkh Enigma location
There is only one Enigma puzzle in Karkh. To claim the enigma treasure, you will need to solve the “Solve This Problem Quickly For Me” enigma in AC Mirage. Funny, isn’t it?
“Solve this problem quickly for me” enigma puzzle will reward you with the ‘Gold Hidden One Dye.’ To begin this puzzle, first make your way to the Officer’s Club. Take a left from the entrance and scale the vine growth until eventually, you end up on the top of the left side of the building.
At the top, you will find a small sitting area. Pick up the Enigma from one of the benches here to get a clue to the treasure.
As for the enigma treasure itself, move northwest of Jarjaraya until you come across the burnt remains of a village. Behind the big burnt tree near the middle of the village, you will see a couple of lootable items on the ground, with the Enigma treasure being under a bit of rubble.
Karkh Lost Book location
Karkh has only one Lost Book to collect. The Lost Book titled The Banu Musa – Book of Ingenious Devices can obtained from the building in the top left corner of Sharqiyah, to the left of the Harbor Camp.
Climb the closed wooden booth near the door and climb onto the wooden platform directly above the door. Peak into the closed window here and through the gaps, throw a knife at the boarded-up window on the opposite side to open access into the building from that side.
Now go to the other side of the building, going around the perimeter. Hang off the roof’s ledge and keep dropping until you’re hanging onto the ledge of the open window. Enter the building from here and run straight ahead. The Lost Book will be on a table to the right.
Karkh Tale of Baghdad
The Tale of Baghdad in the Karkh district of AC Mirage is called Leap of the Faithful. To acquire the Leap of the Faithful Tale of Baghdad, go to Al-Mi’dhana Al-‘Ateeqa and look to the top of the long tower here.
Some people will request that you ensure the boy at the top gets down safely. Climb this tower and reach the boy near the top to talk to him. You will convince the boy to come down, and after agreeing to lead by example so the boy can jump down safely, simply leap off the tower into the hay carriage underneath. After a bit, the boy will do the same and reach the ground safely.
Once the commotion settles, you will have completed the Leap of the Faithful Tale of Baghdad collectible in Karkh.
