During the 'Follow Nur's Lead' quest in Assassin's Creed: Mirage, you'll come across an old ally who gives you a new side task to collect Dervis' Artifacts from people around the city in return for rewards. 

Assassin's Creed has always contained tonnes of collectibles and side activities, and Mirage is no different, offering a number of optional things to collect from around ancient Baghdad. Whether these are Mysterious Shards, Lost Books, Enigmas, or Dervis' Artifacts, it's worth keeping an eye out for them in the game to get the extra rewards.

If you specifically want to know how to find Dervis's Artifacts in Assassin's Creed: Mirage once you've unlocked them, we'll cover the best way of tracking them down below.

How get Dervis' Artifacts in Assassin's Creed: Mirage

To find Dervis' Artifacts in Assassin's Creed: Mirage, you will need to approach and pickpocket certain marked NPCs around Baghdad; they will have a gold icon next to their head of a hand above a hexagon.

As you walk around Baghdad, if you get close enough to one of these NPCs, the icon will appear on your compass and they will be permanently marked on the map until you pickpocket them.

The pickpocket window is much narrower than usual, so it can be easy to time it wrong. If you do fail, just run away and come back to reset and try again.

If you're serious about finding all of Dervis' Artefacts, we found it useful to purchase the skill that makes pickpocketing much easier. This increases the margin of error you have while pickpocketing, meaning you're likely to be successful on more occasions.

If you want to track all of Dervis' Artifacts down quickly in Assassin's Creed: Mirage, you'll want to use Enkidu's Eye.

By pressing up on the d-pad or the B key on the keyboard, you can control your eagle companion in the sky. 

As you look around, you'll notice beams of yellow light in certain locations; flying toward these with Enkidu will reveal what collectible they are, allowing you to track them down easier. 

We suggest using Enkidu frequently to scout around and unveil these collectibles, as it will allow you to quickly find the locations of Dervis' Artifacts and get them.

What are the rewards for finding Dervis' Artifacts in Assassin's Creed: Mirage?

We found the rewards for finding all of Dervis' Artifacts to be rather underwhelming, but still useful if you plan on upgrading your gear and like extra cosmetics.

When you hand over a collection of Artifacts to Dervis, you'll be rewarded with a bunch of materials. The amount of materials that you receive scales with the number of Artifacts you hand over, so it's worth stacking up a bunch of them in your inventory and returning them all at once.

However, bear in mind that you can only hand over Artifacts in batches of three, six, and nine, increasing every time you visit Dervis'.

Once you've collected all of the Dervis Artifacts around Baghdad, you'll also be rewarded with a trophy or achievement, depending on your platform, along with the Treasure Hunter Costume.

That's all for our breakdown of Dervis' Artifacts in Assassin's Creed: Mirage, and now you know how to track them down and collect them efficiently.
