With The Assassin’s Creed Mirage returning to the roots of the series with this entry, it also made sense for us to start from the beginning as well. Basim will start his journey as a young street rat, but slowly develops into the skilled killer you will later meet Valhalla. It’s going to be a long and arduous journey for our heroes, and for you as the player, but one thing this entry doesn’t leave out of more RPG-focused titles is skill trees. Basim’s skills are broken down into three different trees, Phantom, Trickster, and Predator, into which you can invest points as you see fit. While nothing is technically useless, there are a few things that stand out that are much more useful throughout your journey through Baghdad. This is the best skill you need to master The Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
Unfortunately, almost every skill comes in The Assassin’s Creed Mirage is on a linear tree which means you need to unlock earlier skills to get stronger skills. However, there are some trees that are generally much more worth investing in than others. Note that you can freely restore spent skill points by highlighting the skill and holding the prompt button to get your points back at no cost if you wish to reallocate your points.
Auto Collect – Rogue Tree
Let’s be honest, no one can resist looting a body. The problem is that when you’re trying to sneak through an area, taking the extra time to reach into the pockets of a recently killed enemy will likely get you caught. What’s a greedy killer to do? With the Auto-Collect skill you can steal an enemy’s life and their items in one fell swoop so you don’t have to worry about getting caught or going back to all the corpses you left behind later to collect your loot.
Serial Murder – Ghost Tree
The only really important skill in Ghost Tree is Serial Killing. This will be a familiar skill to those who played the previous game as it allows you to kill one target silently, and then combo them into a second if they are close enough, or line of sight as long as you have throwing knives. to throw at the nearest target. This is not only more efficient, but it also opens up more possibilities because you don’t have to wait until every enemy is alone to hide them.
Extra Tools Capacity 1,2, and 3 – Rogue Tree
The tools you unlock as you level up and complete missions are an important part of Basim’s toolkit. The more tools you have at your disposal, the more situations you are ready to face.
Knife Recovery – Trickster Tree
Throwing knives is almost too overpowered The Assassin’s Creed Mirage. The only real balance to them is that you can only hold so much, and once you use it, you have to go to the store to get more. Or, if you unlock the Knife Recovery skill, you can salvage any knife you use by looting it from the unlucky soul who was on the receiving end. If you play smart with this skill, you can save a lot of money and time by recycling your blades.
Pickpocket Master – Rogue Tree
Basim grew up as a thief, but he was still able to learn some tricks to become better. Pickpocket Master has two effects, the first is to reduce the difficulty of the QTE for picking high-level loot from the target. The second is to completely remove the QTE from basic pickpocketing so it automatically succeeds.
Stealth Recon – Predator Tree
Lastly there is the Stealth Recon skill from Predator Tree. As long as you’re stealthy and crouching or taking cover, any enemies in the area will be highlighted and their patrols shown to you, even through walls.
